FEWsteps – Hydrate Your Rising Energy

It is just as important to create new healthy habits, as it is to break free from old limiting ones.

Steadily introducing regular, positive actions is essential if you want to see long-term improvement in your health and overall well-being.

Those of you who know me well, know that I advocate the power of drinking water.  Drunk regularly, good quality water can have a huge impact on your life.  Dehydration is often at the root of many problems experienced.  Physical strength, vitality and motivation can all be improved by increasing your intake of water.

Sunflower & Garlic Spread

So easy, healthy, and super-delicious!

This spread recipe is so versatile.  You can use it on crackers, or in sandwiches.  I prefer mine in a nori wrap, rolled with lots of shredded salad – Ideal if you are wheat free! 
Or you can just use it as a dip for various crudités – or stack between slices of tomato and cucumber and top with olives.

FEWsteps – Being Really Grounded

GroundologyMany of the Life Upgrade students learned about the importance of grounding this year and have been sharing their experiences with others, and so the awareness of what it means to be really grounded is becoming more widespread.

Nourished by the Earth
As well as being barefoot when and where possible, I have been sleeping grounded for quite some time and have noticed many benefits.  I always use a grounding mat, or strap, whilst on my computer and for me personally this has made such a big difference to my sense of wellbeing. Continue reading

FEWsteps – Rebounding

Bouncing Your Way to Health & Happiness

The focus of the FEWsteps programme is to get maximum effects in your life, from the minimum amount of effort. We all want to be healthier and happier, but often there is just so much to do and so little time to do it. Using time wisely, and maximising on benefits is really essential.

However, FEWsteps offers you the simplest solutions which you can get on board with straight away. Continue reading

FEWsteps – Goal Setting

Goal setting is really dream getting.  If you don’t set goals then you will never achieve your dreams.  The mind works in such a way that you have to focus on what you want; most people focus on what they don’t want.

When I got to 40 I realised that I was happier, healthier and had more energy than when I was in my 20s.  I set a goal then to have even more energy, vitality, wealth, health and happiness at 60 than at 40.  Now that my mind knows what I am looking to achieve it can go about sorting the finer details, like how to make this happen.

Your Goals
What goals are you setting today?
What is the big picture for your life?
What is the next step you need to make today?
What would be in the way of achieving that next step easily?

Set the big goals, and also the smaller goals which focus on making all the little steps required.

Set goals, and then take appropriate action. Continue reading

FEWsteps Programme

The FEWsteps programme is just getting under way.  It was initially inspired by those of you who showed an interest in making this winter one in which you felt fitter, healthier and happier than ever before, rather than struggling with the usual winter blues.  We decided that it would be a great opportunity for me to share lots of insights and information with you – things I often don’t get chance to cover in the course of a weekend’s workshop.

There are often many questions about how to keep up momentum through the dark times, and what basic measures you can take on a day-to-day basis to keep yourselves smiling, happy and healthy. Continue reading

FEWsteps – Chia seeds

For all those of you who have asked me what those strange looking seeds are floating in my drinking water, here is some more info –

Chia Seeds
Chia seed are an ancient superfood, a member of the sage family (Salvia Hispanica).
Chia was once a staple of the Incan, Mayan and Aztec cultures, along with the Native Americans of the southwest.

“Chia” is the Mayan word for strength, and the seeds were used by ancient cultures for super-energy.  People would carry a small pouch of chia with them and add it to their drinking water, to boost and sustain their journey. Continue reading
