The Universe has been screaming again at me lately, and it’s all about The Compound Effect. We all know that things get achieved by taking small steps. But how much do you really understand and implement it in your life? I’m sharing four powerful resources that really cemented it for me.
Overwhelm. We’ve all been there, right? I hit a wall like this recently in my business and it was totally crippling. I was taking on every. single. piece of advice being thrown at me. Here’s what I did to strip back and simplify, and why you might need this method too.
I started a new series on the blog back in September 2018: Wellness Words. And I’m ashamed to say this is only my second instalment after all the excitement of coming up with it! But it’s worth the wait because trust me, it’s a good one.
In the last year I have made a real conscious effort to make a better use of my mornings. Whatever your circumstances, I would argue you could try squeezing in at least one of these activities before you press the ‘ON’ button on your computer. Why not give it a go and see what difference it makes?
One of my favourite coaches to follow online is Jen Carrington. She recently sent the questions she’ll be putting to herself to look back on 2018 and make decisions about her life and business for the New Year. I thought I’d have a go too and share my answers with you all.
The biggest reason I hear people say they ‘can’t’ eat healthily is time. But guess what? We’ve all got 24hrs in the day. We all have obligations, we all have busy jobs and some of us even have families on top of that too. Why do some people manage to find the time to eat well and nourish themselves, while you’re left struggling?
“I am enough.” It’s a powerful phrase that completely bowled over our first Reset attendees back on our June retreat. The more I thought about it, the more I realised how constantly I tell myself that I am not enough: so here’s what I’m going to do about it.
You’ve logged on to Instagram for a quick browse. The first image that pops up is a group shot of women, arms around one another stood in a beautiful woodland, smiling at the camera. Retreats are popping up everywhere – yoga retreats, meditation retreats, digital detox retreats, fitness retreats. Why? And more importantly, why now?
Last week I talked about why I think entrepreneurs need to be healthier and shared a couple of the resources and spaces I’m creating to try and help. This week I want to share the simple things I do in my week to prioritise my health. This is a true ‘live what you give’ post from me to you!
At the beginning of the year the Health Bloggers Community (HBC) launched their Reclaim Your Day Off campaign and I was lucky enough to be at their opening event. I wanted to share the take-away points I took from the session which I thought you could all really benefit from too. I know a lot of what she said really stuck with me.
It’s very easy when you’ve been to a lot of health and wellbeing events to come away and think “did I actually learn anything new today?” The talks at Fresh Resolutions were really varied with a range of speakers coming from different backgrounds and with different expertise. But I noticed there were a few themes that popped up across all the talks that I wanted to share with you.
I’ve been loving this quick and easy go-to breakfast lately which I can batch-make on a Sunday evening so I’m set for the week. I’m going rogue with this recipe and not putting measurements on. Shock horror! Will you give it a go?
This week’s Flourishing Entrepreneur is someone I’ve met through the internet, not only online but also in real life. Considering she lives is Australia I find this pretty amazing! Find out about Kristie’s journey to creating Freya’s Nourishment, her range of beautiful natural products.
When it became clear me and David were going to be spending a lot of time together I realised I was going to have to find a way to eat how I want, but also find a way that worked for him too.

This week’s Flourishing Entrepreneurs interview is with Nichola Flood, aka The Queen of Health. Nichola shows what is possible when it comes to really embodying the change you want others to achieve.

I think I’ve mentioned before that I am self-styled Queen of Dips amongst my friends and family. Butter beans make for a really lovely light, fluffy dip when they’re whizzed up, and take on flavours really well from other ingredients.
This week’s Flourishing Entrepreneurs interview is with coach Nick Quinton from Elemental Health.

Allergy Awareness Week is running 29 April - 3 May 2019 and I’m taking it as an opportunity to challenge myself in the kitchen to make a true free-from recipe. These are amazing straight from the oven. Hot and with some melted butter you’ll get a big batch which will freeze well too if you don’t have friends round to help you eat them straight away!
April is IBS Awareness Month, so I thought this was the perfect time to put my IBS story into one place, and also to share with you some of the things I have learned about IBS since starting to explore and really tackle my IBS symptoms head on.
