I am thrilled to announce that I have a new clinic space opening up next week in Bondi Junction. It has been a bit of a long wait but I needed to find the right space. I'm looking forward to seeing my clients there in the next few weeks, as well as welcoming new clients to the new location.
I will be in touch with my existing clients with more details very soon.......
I'd like to wish everyone a very happy, fun filled holiday season. Whatever you're doing I hope you can take some time out to rest and regenerate before the start of another year. It can be a very busy and sometimes stressful time of year but it is a great time to slow down, reflect and set some intentions for the following year.
For those who follow astrological charts you might be aware of the current Venus retrograde cycle we have just entered. Venus is the ruler of love, beauty, arts and finances. When Venus is in retrograde it is a time to have patience in these areas of life as the energy around them can feel a bit "stuck". Try not to push matters around love and money but rather reconsider what is important to you and what you truly value.
You may also like to set some intentions for 2014. Personally I feel setting a new year resolution can create a lot of pressure to "achieve". Setting intentions and goals can help guide you as you make decisions throughout the year, rather than having hard rules. For example you might intend to live a healthy lifestyle and nurture your body, rather than lose x number of kilograms. Intending to nurture yourself could help guide you to make wise choices around the type of food you eat, the time you get into bed at night, the amount of exercise you do and the amount of rest you take also.
What are your intentions for 2014?
Join me as I take part in the Mentor's Channel 21 Days of Gratitude. Practicing gratitude on a daily basis is a powerful way to change your life. By focusing on all the things, big or small, that you are grateful for you will attract into your life even more to be grateful for.
If you find yourself habitually complaining or feeling negative toward yourself, others or your life this is a process that helps switch your thoughts to habitually being aware of the wonderful things in your life. If you are already practicing gratitude and feelings of positivity in your life the 21 days of gratitude meditations may enhance your practice with guest speakers and beautiful videos to inspire you further. See the absolutely beautiful video below.
If you are new to this process and are unsure where to start it can be a simple as being grateful for finding a great car space at the shopping centre or the green lights on your drive to work. You might feel grateful for your delicious lunch and the company of friends as your ate your meal. The size of the subject you are grateful for is irrelevant. Gratitude is the same feeling whether it is for a sunny morning or for finding your true life purpose!
The 21 Days of Gratitude will guide you through this process with a different focus and tools to learn each day.
Optimal Learning Centre will be at the Learning Difference Convention this Friday 1st November and Saturday 2nd November 9am-5pm.
After reading the alarming results of a new study of the links between sugar and diabetes my colleagues at Optimal Learning Centre and I have decided to take on a 200 hour sugar elimination challenge. We are all going without any sugar at all for 200 hours. And we're challenging you to join us!
The challenge will begin at 9.00am on Monday May 20th and end at 5.00pm Tuesday May 28th. During this time we will not be consuming any sugar in any form at all. This means no:
* Sugar, honey, maple syrup, agave nectar, jam, spreads, etc
* Soft drinks, fruit juices, cordials
* Fruit - fresh or dried
* Sweets, lollies, chocolate
* Breads, cereals, cakes, muffins, etc
* Milk, yoghurt, ice cream (which contain lactose)
* Sauces, dressings
* Any product with an ingredient ending in -ose (which means it contains sugar)
What can we eat?
* All vegetables (although sweet corn should be kept to a minimum)
* Salad vegetables
* Meat (red and white)
* Fish and other seafood
* Poultry - chicken, turkey, quail
* Nuts and seeds, including tahini
* Water, herbal teas and juices from vegetables only (no fruit)
* Black coffee and tea, but why not go caffeine free too!
* Oils and fats - eg olive, flax, butter, avocado
* Herbs, spices, salt and pepper
* A twist of lemon juice may be added to water and salads to flavour
One important note is that eliminating sugar does not mean replacing it with sugar-free or artificially sweetened products. These products contain aspartame, a neurotoxic chemical, and is also linked to weight-gain and insulin resistance.
