Recently I have gotten pretty serious about reducing not only my single plastic use but my entire waste foot print on the planet. Becoming more minimalistic seems to be a natural progression of living more consciously. I realise I have a long way to go in my home life to be a minimalist but for me travelling as one is the perfect foray into to realising what I really need.Read More
Don’t worry thirty is the new twenty.
Don’t worry life actually only begins at thirty. Don’t worry, your still young.
At thirty I heard all the goodies. I even remember buying into some of these thought patterns, anxious about turning the page on a decade, and reassuring myself that thirty was not downhill so to speak. The thing is - none of these things ring true to me and none of them allow us to own the pasts role in our present identity.

I am 31.
I am single.
I am childless.

Delayed gratification is a thing of the past. Gone are the days when you actually have to wait for something. If you want something people just go and get it.

Six years ago I was on addicted to drugs.
FIve years ago I was studying post grad psychology.
Four years ago I was confused, unemployed but in love.
My health journey is more than just the physical, for me it has been a psychological one too, and is a journey that will continue for I believe that we should always be growing, changing and learning. Lately someone told me I have changed, and while my initial instinct was to be slightly offended, I mean changed from what? Changed how? But then I realised I was proud that I had. I do not want to be the same as I was ten, five or even 2 years ago. We don't build our dream by not changing.Read More
One day in Seoul and tomorrow morning I am embarking on a 3-day water fast. Seriously, you what? I can hear you say already. It might sound drastic but it’s not. Here is the why, and the how.
To say I am excited to be here is an understatement, for I am definitely that and more.
Sometimes you can feel so out of balance you may as well be a fish out of water. What defines us, what we each want, and more importantly what we all need is completely individual. But the essence is the same, feeling unbalanced is disjointing and disruptive to a harmonious and productive lifestyle, in whatever context one’s harmony exists within.Read More
