Life can be so distracting that we stop noticing our kinaesthesia – our sense of the movement and position of the body – resulting in pain and discomfort. Learn how to activate your kinaesthesia to manage your alignment and get rid of unnecessary pain.
The world of pharmaceuticals used to treat mental illness is a tough one to navigate. So I made up an easy song to help you understand and remember.
We interpret the world through the lens of our own life experience. [bctt tweet=”We interpret the world through the lens of our own life experience.” via=”no”] This is a good thing, because it means that we learn from what we’ve lived and use that information to understand what’s happening and make increasingly wise decisions. It’s […]
Talking about procrastination again (like I did here and here) I came across this in a book called “The Right to Write” by Julia Cameron. There are myriads of reasons we procrastinate but this is one of the more convincing theories I’ve come across: A primary reason writers procrastinate is in order to build up […]
I feel like falling today. Off my bike as I career down a dusty mountain path, dry plants slapping me as I fly past. Fearlessly fast. Or off a skateboard down a long, winding pass. (amazing the amount of trust we put in these flimsy constructs of metal, wood and rubber, transporting us […]
