The things you DON’T need to do to enhance your health and well-being


Do you feel constantly bombarded with all the things you should be doing, buying and taking to improve your health and well-being?

It can be overwhelming trying to find your way through all the conflicting health and wellness advice that’s out there sometimes hey!

It’s hard to know where to start.  And it can cause stress to try and fit it all in when you do narrow it down to what interests you.

Sometimes it’s good to take a step back and remember something that’s so often overlooked.  It can’t be patented, branded and sold for a profit … so most advertising never mentions it ...

Are you curious about meditation but not sure it’s for you, or apprehensive to go along to a course?


Not sure what to expect and wondering if it’ll just be a bunch of weirdos … chanting, oming, wearing funny clothes, or fill in the blank _____?

I get where you’re coming from because over the years I’ve been meditating I’ve certainly come across people like this.  I know it can be very off-putting and there can often be something very fake and unauthentic about them.

As with all things in life though, there are different types and styles of meditation and different people drawn to all of them.  And none of them are immune to fake and inauthentic people that you want to steer clear of! ...

Are you always busy being busy and don’t know how to get off the treadmill?


I know that feeling well and particularly remember it from my 5 ½ years selling real estate in my family’s business.  I had never ending to-do lists and was always available.  There was never enough time to get it all done and I constantly felt like I was somehow pushing against time.  My full days off were few and usually never in a row.  Then when I did have time off my nervous system still felt wired and I didn’t feel truly relaxed.  I also felt disconnected from the deeper parts of me somehow.

I started to realise that although there were many outside demands causing me to be busy, my internal wiring seemed to now be habitually in the mode of busyness.  I realized I was busy being busy!

Do you know that feeling?  Have you ever wondered the same thing?  What came first … the chicken or the egg? ...

Want to learn to meditate? ... but think your mind is too busy?


I first began meditating nearly 25 years ago when I was diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue.  It was foundational in helping me get well and has continued to be a great support for me.

Over the years I have heard this from people all the time …
‘I tried meditating once but I couldn’t stop my thoughts’
• ‘I can’t meditate.  My mind is way too busy’
• ‘I would like to meditate but don’t have time’

Does this sound like you? ...
