my vision board

A vision board is a visual representation of what you’re aiming for in life. Your goals, your dreams, who you want to be, what you want to have, what you’re working towards and what sort of life you want to live. I really enjoy how taking the time to make a vision board gives you an opportunity to think deeply about these things. You can reflect on if how you’re living your life is heading you in the direction you want to be going.

For a very simple vision board, you could

Liver cleansing smoothie

I created this recipe when I stopped taking the pill.

One of the things you are recommended to do when helping your body recover from the pill is to cleanse your liver. This  is because your liver is the detox organ for the body. It filters your blood and removes any non-beneficial substances such as pollutants, toxins and excess oestreogens. It has its work cut out for it when you stop taking the pill because it has to clear out all the excess hormones. I was overwhelmed about all the different foods which are

1. Do something active every day.
Find something you enjoy so you won’t skip it! Yes, resistance training and high intensity interval training (HIIT) are the most effective forms of exercise for dropping body fat, but if you can’t stand them you can still get good results from other types of exercise. The best type

I know most people are wanting advice about the opposite: how to lose weight. Over the years, however,  I have come across people who are wanting to gain weight. The most common examples are teenage boys wanting to look a little less skinny and people recovering from a sickness or stressful period in their lives which caused them to lose weight.

Relaxing-on-beach

You’ve lost your usual zest for life and spring in your step. Instead of bouncing out of bed, you slowly wobble out thinking how stiff and sore everything feels. You’ve been permanently tired for days and even coffee
