  • What to say to a friend when they are feeling emotional

    For a long time in our history, emotions were something that children expressed. But as adults, you were expected to grow out of them. Only, the thing is, is that we don’t “grow out of them”. Experiencing emotion is a central part of the human experience. It has evolved through the mammalian centres of our brain (known as the limbic system) to help us thrive as a species.

  • Ditch the Vision Board for a Values Board

    It’s important to get clear on what we want out of life, but our guidance should come from within, not from external inspiration of what success looks like in the pages of magazines or on celebrity social feeds. So, inspired by my love of craft projects, self-exploration and a desire to set up this year for success, I dived into building my own, more nourishing version of the vision board - The values board.

  • What to do if your anxiety is through the roof because of the Aussie bushfires

    What a fucking year this week has been. Vast swathes of Australia are up in flames, people have lost homes, livelihoods and their lives, half a billion of our native animals have perished and the folks in power seem capable of little more than forcing limp handshakes. It can be an overwhelming and anxiety-inducing time for anyone who loves this beautiful country, not to mention anyone who cares about the fate of our planet.

  • We wish you a… Our honest wishes for you, at this time of year.

    This time of year is often full of wishes of good will. Folks wishing you a “Merry Christmas” and a “Happy New Year” – But as ~nice~ as that is, sometimes we need some well wishes that are a little meatier, that help us cling onto something precious or hopeful or beautiful for the future, in light of all the challenges and hardships we may currently face. So we decided to put together a few of our own wishes of good will, that will hopefully resonate with you, wherever you’re at…

  • Spring Cleaning For The Soul

    We’re told to discard and dust off material things we no longer need but how often do we look within ourselves to see what we need to let go of? In celebration of Spring being the season of growth and rebirth, we’re taking this opportunity to declutter the dusty pockets of our mind, to make them fresh for the approaching new year.

  • Have a Spring Fling (with yourself)

    Spring is such a wonderful time of the year. It reminds us of rebirth, growth and of course, the steady approach of a warm and languid summer. As we ease into a new month, we invite you to treat yourself to a little fling, to get your body, mind and soul prepped for the madness of the silly season and to help you see in the new year (and decade!) with wisdom, curiosity and a little humour.

  • Our four greatest fears (and what they say about us)

    Acknowledging what we’re most afraid of can help us honour the pain of past hurt, as well as provide insight into the things in life that are meaningful and important to us. Often we share many of the same fears, because humans generally find meaning and purpose in many of the same things – and we fear having these things allude us or dissolve in our lifetime.

  • The biggest lies we tell ourselves in relationships

    Our relationships can be rewarding and enriching but they can also be confusing and painful. Because relationships are so meaningful and important to us, we can sometimes tell ourselves lies to avoid having to confront harsh truths about ourselves or our partners, (and recognise that the relationship might not be right for us).
