1. This time of the year...
The anticipation and the excitement of Christmas is getting near. Time in Sydney with my family is always fun. We have such a fun crew with interests ranging from trampolining, quality food, ocean swimming, hiking, cannoying, camping, wine, riding bikes with my little cousins, dancing to animated kids film clips with my cousin Abbey & exploring new places both in and around Sydney. Christmas is approaching and I leave this Thursday...that's right I can count on one hand!
I have a few new food haunts to check out with my cousin, some ocean swimming to do, some sipping of tea with aunties, uncles, etc and camping with my gorgeous Niece Willow who is 3 & I haven't seen her in a year! I think she'll join the dance-offs with Abbey & I :)
2. Having an office to go to work at.
The time has come where I needed to move my office and business out of my home. And oh how good it feels to drive to work, focus and achieve and then drive home, flick the off switch and really focus on being present with cooking, connecting with others, swimming in the ocean, reading my book, staring at the sky, anything to create that bit of balance in my day/week.
3. The community around me
I feel so grateful for the women around me. Those that brighten my day and lift me up. People to share knowledge with, turn to for a boost or idea sharing. Combining talents, picking mangoes, etc. It's all so juicy and delicious.
4. Swimming in the ocean daily
Oh this is such bliss! I just love floating and surrendering to the roll of the ocean. Of late I try and go for a hike up Earl Hill first or a beach walk or run to the stinger nets and then jump in the ocean. Laying on my back and surrendering to the roll of the ocean is something I have needed to do of late - surrender.
5. Doterra essential oils
I am so pumped about these babies! I just love how pure and nurturing these oils are both physically and emotionally. I personally use them daily and love the community of women which is forming in Cairns. These women are educating and empowering themselves to support both themselves and their family. Whether that be online with the Life-force Collective or in person at different spots including a delightful mango farm at Yorkey's Knob. It such a supportive group with a real softness and strength of community. You can purchase your own oils at wholesale prices also! Just contact me or go on to my shop.
6. Riding my bike (to Earl Hill)
There is a certain sense of freedom when I'm on my bike. I love to ride and would like to ride more often. It's simple, it's free and it's free-ing.
7. Fish oils
These babies were discovered at a recent seminar. The purity of them is out of this world! I really scrutinize supplements and not many get through the gates, especially fish oils that are incredible questionable for purity. These are high in omega 3s which reduce inflammation in the body bought on through stress, poor eating habits, dehydration, over work, etc. I have been taking them myself for the last 3 weeks and love how I am feeling. Fabulous if you are currently suffering with dry skin, sore joints, more memory, feel irritable or have been working your butt off to get to the end of the year!
They are a Practitioner Only product hence why I they are not available on my online store. I will need to prescribe them to you so give me a call for a quick free chat or pop in to 218 McLeod St, for a consultation if you feel you want to discuss more.
8. The opportunity & buzz I get from running workshops & the scope of what is in store for 2016!
I feel so excited for what lay ahead for 2016. After delivering my most recent workshop on self-care I feel excited at what potential lay ahead for next year! The products I have found over the last 9 years through both research and personal experience of trying them myself are now what I feel to be the best! I really enjoy sharing all aspects of self-care and know that the Seeds Of Health community is building with the right tools to equip you on your very own HOLISTIC, SELF-CARE REVOLUTION!
Cheers to the end of 2015 and a very restful and Merry Christmas to you. Thank you for being a part of this growing community. I really appreciate you being here. See you in 2016! xxx
Perhaps over Christmas lunch you could go around the table noting 3 things you are grateful for. A lovely way to end the year.
