LESS IS THE NEW MORE Why do we all try to do so much? Society has got it all wrong.  We are all competing with each other - trying to be the busiest or to squeeze more in every day. This conversation echoes around the globe:  'how have you been?'  the answer....'SO busy'.  Boring.   At least once a week I get 'You're a machine.  I don't know how you fit it all in'.   Whatever. It's not a bloody competition.  And guess what the prize is?   Overwhelm Adrenal fatigue Sleep deprivation Anxiety Depression a bloody shit life! For me personally, I'm really focussed on what is important and what I want to achieve. As brutal as this sounds, I don't waste time on things that don't serve me and I don't…

Have you ever heard of intergenerational  trauma?  Until I became a Psych-K® practitioner I'd not really thought about it.  Now, I can see that it is effecting pretty much everyone - in one way or another. If we don't have the opportunity to heal from our traumatic experience, we may unknowingly pass them down to our ancestors through epigenetics.  Our behaviour will also assist with ensuring that the effects continue through generations. What does that mean exactly?  It will be different for every person. For example, my father was born in Germany in 1942.  From conception to his birth, he was living in a very uncertain and dangerous time.  His early childhood…

Simplicity is the key

Simplicity is the key

Uncategorized
Simplicity is the key to a happy, carefree life. It’s not about having less or doing less.  It’s about changing your core belief from needing to do, be, have everything – to being happy with just what you need. If you stop and think about every aspect of your life, there are so many things that can be simplified.  And believe me, the less you have on your plate – and the less drama involved in all areas of your life – the better! But why does simplicity feel so good? As Tom Butta says ‘Simplicity is a faster way to get to whatever or wherever you want to’. For me, it’a about freeing up some time and energy.  Complication and high maintenance is not something that I allow in…

In times of great change, the upheaval can cause so much anxiety and stress.   Cue the self help and motivational memes such as “If you can’t go outside, go inside”.  What the hell does that even mean?  If you are in a situation of overwhelm and unease due to the massive change of your life, that really isn’t going to help much is it? Rather than throw sayings around, I’d prefer to dive right in and talk about things that will actually help you in this time of change. The suggestions I offer will not be for everyone.  But if just one think I mention is helpful, then I’m stoked. Let's talk about the basics First of all, give yourself permission to feel unsettled.  To feel the unease.  It is…

It’s Time to Panic!

It’s Time to Panic!

Uncategorized
Australia is a little behind Asia and Europe with COVID-19.  It took an extra few weeks for cases to arrive Down Under. But what did arrive – very early on – was the panic buying.  Far out, I’ve never seen supermarket shelves so empty in all of my life.  Even during the two Category 5 cyclones (Larry & Yasi) that wiped us out.  After a month of this craziness, some things are still flying off the shelves such as toilet paper, flour, pasta, rice. The question is, what is behind this sheer panic?  There is plenty for all of us.  Most products that are being wiped our are made in Australia so we will not run out.  So why are we behaving this way? First and foremost, I believe media…
