It's time to take your shoes off!

Now it's warmer, I've been feeling more contact with the earth and realising just how stiff and sensitive my feet have become over winter. 
Our feet were never meant to be covered up all the time and definitely never designed to walk on flat hard surfaces either. The consequence of this? Tight fascia and lingering inflammatory conditions like plantar fasciitis.

Movement keeps the fascia hydrated and feeli...

Cancer is often described as though it is an arbitrary disease that can strike anyone at any time. Just random bad luck. What often accompanies this sense of randomness is a sense of predestination, as though once a person is diagnosed with cancer, there is little he can do to alter the course of fate.

But that’s simply not true. Cancer does not grow in isolation. It develops within an environment we help create by the things we eat day af...

Filling the void seems to be what we excel at. Moments of awkward silence in a lift or at dinner with friends, even lying in Savasana for more than a few minutes, can reveal agitation and anxiety for many.

Yet this space where mindlessness ends and mindfulness begins can be truly transformative. And it begins right now in this moment. So pause for a minute, stop reading and just drop into your body as a field of rising and falling sensatio...

The practice of mindfulness was all I need...

The malls are already saturating us with Christmas jingles and we're trying to juggle present shopping with planning meals and holidays and what to do with the kids and pets. How would you like to approach the silly season? Stressed or calm? I know what I would prefer! Leaving a visit to this relaxed inner space until after Christmas may mean that you fall into a heap during your holidays. Who wants that?

I am reminded of how our senses ar...

Have you ever had a panic attack? That scary, intense feeling of panic can cause a range of symptoms including shortness of breath, heart palpitations, dizziness and muscle tension. Panic attacks are really common, with up to 35% of us having them at some point in our lives, and can be a reaction to periods of stress or illness. A little bit of fear is normal. It keeps us alert and actually makes us feel whole. The problem starts when thi...

Our world has endless ways to connect us to a stream of sensory stimulation … and it’s not slowing down. It’s easy to feel overwhelmed and anxious. Are you in control or lost in the toxic sticky tape that takes us away from our inner balance, self-care and creative pursuits? Do you have a regular practice that helps you turn off and tune in?

Have you noticed how often we affirm to ourselves, even unconsciously, how busy we are? It seems th...
