Many thanks to everyone who attended my sold-out talk at 12 Hay Hill on stress and professional burnout! I received great feedback from the audience and truly appreciated the support provided from Hay Hill. It's a lovely club.

It is always a rewarding experience to discuss and provide strategies for those who need to manage stress.

Ingredient Spotlight: WATERCRESS

Ingredient Spotlight: WATERCRESS

Autumn can be a particularly busy season - that’s when we begin to reflect and plan for the challenges ahead that can affect our health over the next six months. This is the season of peak performance, but sometimes we try to take on more than our minds and bodies can handle and succumb to burnout and stress.This is why this week I chose an ingredient that is available almost year round, and a very simple recipe to go with it: watercress, which is the start ingredient of my green soup.

Meditation in Green

Autumn is here and we just had a watery full moon in Pisces on Wednesday. The energy always feels is little intense around this time, especially as we are truly at the end of Summer and transitioning towards the contraction of nature from harvest to the winter season.

I find it helpful to meditate on the colour green to help ground and balance my thoughts and energy - Autumn is the season to plan and prepare and at watery times to blend seamlessly with the Sun in the earth sign of Virgo to gain positive results.

Try to meditate on green for 15 minutes in the morning or before you go to bed, looking at your green items and see how you feel.

Summer Workout Cool Down Tips

Being active the Summer heat, whether working out or having fun outdoors, we need safe and effective ways to cool down properly. Here are my top tips:

  • Unlike athletes - ice baths don't appeal, must reduce inflammation after intense workout in hot weather
  • Cold baths and showers are not for the faint hearted - start with lukewarm water then move to colder temperature
  • If in a bath - this is a good opportunity to add Epsom salts and other nutrients to remineralise your body. Most adults in the West are low on magnesium and this is a good time to add active salt
  • Add essential oils to help you relax, clear emotional energy or energise your spirit. Lavender, geranium, neroli, and rosemary are all great choices
  • Pray or meditate for 15 minutes in the water, I find this extremely helpful to activate a positive visualisation
  • Listen to some relaxation music if bathing at the end of your day
  • Use this protocol after a big night out dancing to aid restful nights sleep
  • If you've been sunbathing - after bath use aloe Vera, calendula or soothing calming gels to aid recovery
  • Once out of the water, allow your body to calm before adding moisturisers or sunscreen!
