Sleep issues? Maybe you need a bedtime yoga ritual.

Chris Cornell, anxiety, death and hope.

Because you have to ‘will’ yourself to do it, which to be completely honest, is hard work. You have … Read More

Emotional Health: Poisoning your mind with what you eat?

Our emotional health is intimately connected to the food we put in our body. We may not think it is, but next time you eat a block of chocolate take the time to notice how you feel emotionally half an hour later. Down. Low on energy. Perhaps even a little cranky? Why is this? Refined sugar is one of the main foods … Read More
