Five tips take care festive season

Five tips to take care this festive season

Those long summer days are so close now that it's almost possible to taste the sweet ice-cream and feel the sticky sunscreen mixed with sand. While the summer festive season can be a wonderful time to take a break from the pressures of work and other commitments, it can also be a stressful time for many. It can be tricky navigating the expectations of family, friends, and colleagues, and managing the rituals of socialising with food and alcohol. Add in travel commitments, financial pressures, school holidays and the rest, and it's easy to see why most people look a little tired and in need of a chance to take care. Certainly, I know what it's like trying to juggle it all and can empathize with the pressure...

Give up guilt for good: What you need to know

One night after work last year, I was sitting in a large auditorium, full of busy professional women, listening to advice on wellbeing. Much of it was good advice but were a few things that set off little red flags in my head. And no sooner had the presentation finished when one of the women turned to me and said, “Oh I feel so guilty, I didn’t know I wasn’t supposed to drink tap water. I thought it was ok. How am I going to afford a filter on my tap?” Now you might laugh at that statement and think, "how could she think that?" But I was so mad that this woman had come away from the presentation believing her efforts to take care of herself...

I AM Co: Day on her plate

The cool I AM Co team asked what a normal day of eating looked like for me. It's about simple food. When you're busy juggling work and life with family and friends, in my view, food needs to be easy, satisfying and inexpensive. If you've read my blog on body image, you'll also know that I'm not keen on food labels. If anything, it's about eating food that's helpful for your body and occasionally eating food that's less helpful but still satisfying and fun. Thanks to the lovely I AM Co team for the opportunity, and check out the I AM Co. blog here! There are some great ideas from others too.   Our approach to eating and meals If it is of interest, we do one big supermarket shop once per week as a...
