During my travels and past life of working within a corporate sector of stock market and financial sector of business, one thing is very apparent. Stress can be the biggest issue and health problem to manage, we forget the biggest investment of our wealth is our health. Without this, our health, we cannot possibly function with efficiency in our every day lives.
Where can we begin to manage our stress levels, so this doesn’t have a negative impact on our health? We are living in an era, where everything is vastly faster, communication, technology, work, business, we are required to keep up with the fast pace of our modern society, to the point of burn out. Yet, the last point we often address, is our health, mental and physical.
“Your Biggest Wealth Is Your Health”
I believe a preventative is better than having to cure an illness.
The top ten hot tips, suggestions, for guidance to maintain your health and well being – (these are just my suggestions, to reflect upon),
- Meditation approx 15 minutes per day
- Exercise at least X3 per week at 45 min per session
- Daily intake included in your food of organic fresh fruit and vegetables
- Drink at least one and a half litre’s of water per day
- Express the act of gratitude daily
- Travel to a place or destination outside of your comfort zone on your own, for a couple of days, take time out, to get a fresh perspective on things
- Write your thoughts down in a journal to express yourself
- Learn a second language at least conversational, to connect with another culture through language
- Surround yourself with people who uplift you, not pull you down, detox the people who bring you down and you feel negative arround
- Spend regular time and solitude in nature and observe the calmness and stillness
Enjoy and hopefully these health tips will give you a clearer and positive perspective towards your health and well being!

We looking forward to hearing from you.
An observer and caretaker of nature, the most happiest moments I’ve experienced, is when I’m fully immersed within the present moment with mother nature. Being aware of the breathe and letting go of the ego, in trying to configure the past or future. By just being present, stress and tension is naturally released from the mind and body, gradually a moment of trust and surrender arises.
During my travels, especially through Africa, South East Asia, Malaysia and Indonesia, it is very apparent how many people in these countries, have less externally, materialistically and yet, seem to have more internally, big open hearts and tenacity of the human spirit, they have a strong sense of community life, a philosophy of ‘Ubuntu’ as referred to in Africa.
Daily living and volunteering within these communities taught me and captured the importance of being ‘present’ of survival and daily life, going back to basics of safe shelter, clothing, nutritional food, looking out for the other, working together as a community. Less becomes more, more becomes less, an inner richness and uplifting feeling to the human spirit transforms.
Ubuntu, I am because we are
In further observation, back in the western world, we have more in external things and choices, a click of a button and we can purchase a plane ticket to the other side of the world, which is the basic cost of a 6 months salary for a family living in Asia or Africa. A click of a button, we can order all of our material creature comforts, without leaving our homes.
In reality, in our busy lives, with more things, more busy working hours, more busy social lives, social media, with more distraction, from being focused in the present moment, without having moments of being quiet and still in nature, we’ve become desensitized, disconnected from ourselves, mother nature and one another.
We’ve lost touch of the sense of community, to help the other and continue to feed the ‘ego’ of things, in process, isolating ourselves, building walls and boundaries, frontiers, around our hearts and minds. Internal and external happiness seems to become a self illusion, mirage, a perpetual cycle of the hamster running inside a wheel.
Happiness is a responsibility of our own and to find inner happiness, becomes an art of balancing the external and internal, the doorway can be through the simple things, nature can be a wonderful and powerful way, by going back to our basics, back to the simplicity of nature, it could be a walk in the forest, sitting in a garden, swimming in the ocean, taking your dog for a walk in the park, finding the time to reconnect with ourselves and thus with mother nature.
To live a stress free lifestyle, begin again, by being introspective and find a way, to reconnect with mother nature.
The importance is, how often, do we find the time to reconnect, adapting this into our everyday lifestyle?This adaptation, will eventually become an enjoyable and stress relieving process! Japanese Doctors and scientists, did an interesting experiment on the positive effect of trees’ and how taking a walk in a forest, called ‘Forest Bathing’, or ‘Shinrin Yoku‘ in Japanese, this has a positive impact on people’s well being. The results were astounding, cancer patients, people with high levels of stress, taking a break, by walking through the forest had long term, positive affects on their health and well being.
Forest air doesn’t just feel fresher and better, inhaling phytoncide, seems to actually improve the immune system function.
See the following You Tube Video clip on ‘forest bathing’ documentary:
If a tree falls in the forest and no one hears, does it make a sound? – Japanese ZEN
This present moment is a perfect starting point to take walk in nature, in a forest or in your garden recharge your batteries, reconnect, the benefits for your well being is worth your while.
Happy Easter, Peace and Longevity!
