Things to do before 9am.

There hasn’t been too much action before 9am at our place. Early mornings usually involve two small people climbing into our bed, proceeding to play shops and camping or fight over whose mum and dad we actually are. Then its a stagger to make breakfast, a war to get clothes on, and several demands and complaints. This is bit inspiring though. I know that feeling of accomplishment when you get stuff done in the morning. It’s almost like a super-power time of day where you can achieve much more than you ever imagined.

Dr Libby’s TED talk about ‘Rushing Woman’s Syndrome’ – A must watch video.

Two people posted this video about the pace of life and health implications for women on my wall, separately on the same day. So I thought I better make myself a cup of tea and watch it. Boy, I’m glad I did. I didn’t want it to end.

I feel like it’s time to get some things in place that will set me up for having more energy, life and happiness, and less lethargy and crankiness. So I’ve come up with this little list of reminders for my fridge. I wanted to share it with you, in case you might like these ideas and want to print it out. Here is a PDF version of it. Feel free to share and pin it!

Save the world! 3 tips for a healthier body, planet and society.

This last year I’ve embarked on a paleo journey of sorts, and it feels so good I just can’t go back. I just keep delving further in to a healthier and better way to do food and living, and keep finding more ways to shop and eat that are really beneficial, not only for me, but for others too.  (more…)
