If you could change one thing about your life today that would have a positively impact on your future, what would it be?
Have you ever thought about it?
Would it be:
- Loosing weight and becoming more healthy?
- Starting your own business from home
- Travel more
- Pay off your credit cards
- Save up x amount of money in your bank account
- Give up that job that you have had for a long time that you don't enjoy anymore and find a more enjoyable one.
- Take up a new hobby that you have always wanted
For the next few weeks, I'd like to challenge you to choose, then tackle, the one thing you know in your heart that you must do to feel better about every aspect of your life.
The concept of a breakthrough goals is something that I learned from The OolaGuys - Dr. Dave Braun and Dr. Troy Amdahl, authors of Oola: Find Balance in an Unbalanced Worlds. With so many stress points in life, they say, our lives can get out of balance. But narrowing our focus to our "Oola One" - the one single goals we know we must achieve - can change our lives for the better (often permanently).
Not only does it calm the chaos, it puts us together with new people, gives us new skills, and so much more. We get smarter, more confident, better connected, more loving, more generous, less stressed - qualities that enable us to truly live our unique purpose - our soul purpose - on this planet.
We can never go back to who we were because we become someone different in the process of pursuing our OolaOne.
Are you up for a life change in 2021?
Permanent change is what the Oola lifestyle taught me, and it's what I help to do as an Oola Life Coach.
START TODAY: MAKE A LIST OF 7 GOALS...THEN CHOOSE 1
So, what would change in "The 7 F's of Oola" (life areas) below? Choose 7 goals in the following areas, then narrow it to just one thing that would change your life. When you've decided, drop a comment below and share your OolaOne goals (unless it's private)
Fitness - Finance - Family - Field - Faith - Friends - Fun
In my next blog post, I'll give you a strategy for tackling the daily steps to achieve your OolaOne. Stay tuned! It will be life changing blow that transforms the way you focus!
I love creating and I love being organised particularly as a New Year starts.
I have decided to be very organised in 2021, not just because I find it's easier to manage my life. It is also because I have many different things to juggle. Do you feel the same way - that you have a lot to juggle and that you want to be more organised so you can achieve your dreams and goals?
I have created two calendars that you can download for FREE - you can just Click on the Links Below.
I have also created an amazing Tracker and Planner for 2021 with many different pages that you can download and use to make 2021 so much easier to manage.
Have an awesome year ahead - a more organised, joyful and successful!
2020 - what a Year! A year of ultimate Transformation in so many ways.
I wish you all the best for a Healthy, Happy & Loving 2021!
Wow! What a year it's been! 😅😳🤸♂️
Full of challenges, growth, learning, emotions & it's still going..... This has not been a year for me to sit back and wait for things to go "back to normal". It's been a year of having to create and figure out "new ways".

As I sit reflecting in the last few hours of 2021, I am filled with Gratitude.
Here are some of the highlights of 2020:

- I closed my Aspire Wellbeing Centre / Wellbeing Centre that I had been running for 4 years
- I studied restorative yoga & became an Oola Life Coach
- I ran an amazing VisionBoard Workshop early 2020 and then many other workshops after that
- I started running online Body Awakening Movement Classes & developed a program online
- I developed the Crystals, Essential Oil & Mindfulness online program (ready to be launched late January 2021)
- I travelled to the Gold Coast and took part of the Young Living Symposium
- I built a new Website
- I travelled to a Mount Beauty & Bright - a stunning little place in the alpine region here in Victoria
- I kept my exercise up
- I got an Aspire Wellbeing App with many incredible programs
- I lead & coached my Aspire "Joy droppers" Team
- and lots more
So there is so much to be grateful for.
2020 was also a year of massive growth and learning about humanity and connecting with people from all over the world.
In a moment I am going to leave this Mac and rest up before the New Year start.
I'd like to THANK all of you who have supported me & aspire wellbeing during 2020!

Stress is inevitable. It is something we all will experience at times. It is kind of part of the modern-day lifestyle. It's when we experience too much stress that is starts to have a negative effect. It then starts to affect our energy, hormones our mood and our weight and the list goes on.
Ongoing stress (emotional, physical, psychological) and high levels of cortisol are not good for our adrenals.
When the adrenals are exhausted, we start to experience adrenal fatigue. The symptoms of this is exhaustion, lack of motivation, anxiety and intense sugar cravings and more.
All stress is the same to the body. It can't tell the difference.
The physical effects on the body is blood-sugar imbalance, weight gain around the middle, poor digestive function, low motivation, impaired thyroid function etc.
Stress directly affects the synchronicity of the hormones. So, if you are stressed, the hormones will be out of whack. So when our cortisol are high for long periods of time, they affect the production of sex hormones and it also makes it hard for the body to produce those "feel good" hormones.
If you feel anxious and sad, it may be because you are producing too much cortisol.
High levels of cortisol levels are also linked to weight gain and lower thyroid function. When our body is stressed the digestion slows down. The body diverts the blood away from the digestive tract and we don't digest the food properly.
So when we experience stress we need to SLOW DOWN. It's is time to give the body a chance to heal.
The parasympathetic nervous system is responsible for the body's rest and digest function. It works to bring body to a state of calm.
The sympathetic nervous system is responsible for the body's fight or flight response. It controls how we react to perceived threats.
These two systems work together to keep the body balanced. Normally this works perfectly but the problems start when we are stressed too much and for longer periods of time. When we are in constant state of stress, the sympathetic nervous system works overtime.
Some things you can do to combat stress
- practice deep belly breathing
- having a bath with salts and essential oils
- listen to some relaxation music
- read or listen to an audio book
- have a break from the computer or your phone
- take a power nap or just "chill"
- smell therapeutic Essential Oils such as Stress Away, Lavender
I think it's easy to fall into the fast pace of life and become disconnected to how we are actually feeling. We don't allow ourselves to rest enough to know how it actually feels to be totally relaxed. Have you ever noticed when you go away on a break or holiday, you feel tired or even perhaps get sick as you start to slow down. I believe this is a sign that you are being in a state of sympathetic system overdrive.
I usually say "You have to slow down before you can speed up". We cannot just keep speeding up and speeding up. The mind and body needs slowing down in between.
Have a wonderfully relaxing day!

It's hard to believe that I have been teaching movement classes for so long now. If someone would have told me 2020, that I would be teaching the Body Awakening classes in 20 years time from now; "I would have probably said No Way". 😂
I would have found it difficult to believe. You see, I am a person that likes challenges and change. I guess I have had that by doing things differently, but it has still been around teaching movement.

Well, in the last few months, I have had to adapt to our new "normal". I started taking things online, thinking it would not last too long. This instead has opened my eyes to wanting to share my movement session with many more people. I want to assist thousands and thousands more people who will benefit from what I share and I also want to make them know that I am here to support them. I am here to create a Body Awakening Movement - a movement program that is a community that works on mobility, flexibility, strength and balance in their bodies.
I know that anyone that practise some of these movement will have more quality of life and feel younger and more vibrant. We are made to move but sometimes life gets busy an we don't make time for it.
I want to make it easy and fun for people to be part of this and although you won't leave your home or the place your are at to join the session, it will still be motivating and inspiring as I will hold you accountable and inspired to incorporating some movement in your life. You can do a session when it suits you, perhaps ones a week or perhaps 5 times a week. That is your choice.
I will also be going live via Zoom where you can join me and this will be live-streamed into the Body Awakening Group that you will part of.
The last few months have ignited my passion for my movement sessions again.
I can't wait to share it with you and the rest of the world.
