That image of the Cookie Monster below, it was totally me earlier this week.  I was in a foul mood, didn’t really know why and all I felt like doing was stuffing my face with junk food and sugar. You’ve probably heard the term “emotional eating” but have you ever stopped to think about how […]

Today, many of us will be spending time with our loved ones. It’s funny how we use the expression “loved” ones and yet in the back of our minds we can pin point all the things that we would change about them to make them just a little more lovable. It’s not that they aren’t […]

Last night, I taught my first yoga session. Despite loving yoga, taking classes almost every day and doing my teacher training since January, I had been procrastinating teaching it. Why had I been putting this off? Because of a nasty four-letter word that is present in all our lives but often goes unnoticed. A sneaky […]

During my yoga teacher training class, I was chatting with a fellow trainee about the fact that, as driven women, we have lost the art of cultivating patience. We tend to live in the “doing” rather than the “being”. We have places to go, people to see and goals to reach. In addition to this, […]

This quote by Diane Arbus reminds me of the joys we can experience when stepping outside our comfort zone: “My favourite thing is to go where I’ve never been.” If you take this word-for-word you could say “Sure!

Si vous me permettez, je vais écrire le billet d’aujourd’hui en français.
