Why exercise is transformative for the brain

What would you say if I told you that exercise could not only have a positive impact on your mood, productivity and energy but could also quite possibly change the trajectory of your life? Neuro-scientist Wendy Suziki’s research suggests that the powerful effects of moving your body has both immediate and long-term protective power that shouldn’t be taken lightly if you want to maintain good health.

Essential oils – can scent positively impact your mood?

I’ve been loving learning about essential oils and aromatherapy recently, so I decided it was time to share my current understanding and discoveries as I dip my toe into this practice.

Getting comfortable with your body

I’m curious. Have you ever really liked your body? Have you ever given your body the credit for all the crazy cool shit it does all by itself every waking and resting second, minute and hour? Have you ever been happy in the skin that you’re in? I suppose this blog post follows on from my last. As part of my recovery from an eating disorder I’ve had to find a way to get a bit more comfortable with myself and yet every day I seem to be confronted by messages and triggering situations that want to throw me off…
