“Food is thy medicine” – Hippocrates.
We are presently living in a fast pace society, time becomes an illusion, we are constantly, chasing the future into the tomorrow, or remembering a nostalgia of our past history.
The ‘present’ is where we are, in essence, living, breathing, becoming, creating, expanding, growing, learning, in motion ‘being’. Once we begin to trust and be more in the space of being ‘present’ we become ‘in tune’ to ourselves, connected to our internal and external world. Artists, poets, musicians, writers, inventors, visionaries, entrepreneurs, understand the importance of ‘being present’, creative ideas and inspirations are born from the present, fertile mind, within the here and now.
The art of presence connects us to our minds and bodies, the importance of this assists us to listen and intuitively become aware of our physical body. Meditation can be practiced in different forms, through creative means, sport, yoga, qiqong, walking, sitting in lotus position, being present is key. Initially 5 minutes per day for 21 days and build up to x10 minutes per day. Noticed where you keep the stress in your body, this is the first start to understanding the importance of being connected to your physical being.
Our bodies are working for us daily, as a car or vehicle it requires the correct fuel and maintenance to be reliable and run efficiently, taking care of our health and well being is one of the most important priorities. It begins with, the fuel, in our case, the food we put into our bodies, is the result of how our health manifests within the internal and external body.
The Greek Philosopher, Hippocrates once wrote –
“Food is thy medicine”
I encourage you to try this technique of meditation, 5 minutes per day, be present and be aware of your physical body and ask yourself these questions –
Where am I holding stress and tension in my body?
Am I putting healthy fuel, food into my body to go the full mileage and speed I’m currently doing?
Do I eat regular healthy meals?
Do I exercise at least x4 times per week for 30 min each?
Is my health, presently the best it can be?
Can I make small changes to some parts of my health and well being to benefit my overall health?
I encourage you to take the first step towards your health and well being, begin with the art of being present and a daily 5 minute meditation.
For guidance and further tools to begin a healthier lifestyle to benefit yourself and your well being. I offer a 30 min. introduction consultation, as your personal Health Coach, for further information contact me

Happy International Women’s Day!
Ladies around the world and men, today are celebrating ‘Women’s Day’, today is just a simple reminder that women have the right to their liberty.
It was not long ago that women were given the right to vote, Lydia Taft who became the first legal women voter in colonial America. Women from all races and creed have come a long way since and hopefully our voices will continue to be heard and the equality and our liberty continue to grow in strength.
In eastern philosophy the lotus flower is a very powerful symbol, it represents the power and the natural beauty of mother nature. A lotus flower is ‘mud born’, it’s roots originate within the depths of a pond. After a period of time the roots push through the mud, murky water and finally reaches towards the sky and surfaces, the jewel of the flower emerges, the colourful, radiant and beautiful petals, resting calm and zen upon the surface of the water. The lotus flower reminds me of the cycles of a women’s life, her natural cycle and life cycles.
In eastern philosophy the lotus represents the inner mind, for meditation, the murky water our stagnant negative thoughts and the lotus flower, the petals represent the inner jewel of our mind, the purification after meditation comes the clarity of mind, with calmness, wisdom, inner peace and well being.
Today for women, take the time to be still, breathe, meditate for a few minutes and light a candle for yourself and the women in your life and around the world, send them positive thoughts and well being. This day remind yourself how important it is to have time for yourself and be still….
Happy Women’s Day,
Wishing for your well being not just today but everyday…
