Where do I start with a new blog? How about the reason I came to create this new blogging paradise. I started blogging about two years ago on a different site. It was a wonderful outlet for another passion of mine Bikram Yoga. Over time it ran it’s course. I was kind of blogged out about Bikram & didn’t feel the love of sharing any more. I wanted to reclaim my privacy on the subject.
After a blogging sabbatical I realised I missed writing. A lot has moved and shifted in my life over the past year. I found myself drawn to different blogs from what I used to read which are based around holistic living. This is when I decided I was ready to share again but in a different setting.
Healthful living is something I have always been aware of & strived to live by. Like everything I’ve jumped on the bandwagon both feet first, then tumbled straight off the back again! I spent most of my twenties in that ‘experimental’ stage, as I’d like to call it. Any new diet or exercise fad I tried it. Embracing it fully then getting bored & ditching it.
Now I’m in my thirties, I’m very settled and content with my primary factors of life. Everything else is falling into place because of this. The most important thing I have learned is to stop, slow down & listen to my body. Really listen. It has a voice. The human body has amazing ways of communicating with us. We just don’t hear it, as we are too busy racing around doing things. We are human ‘beings’ not human ‘doings.’ Stop doing and just ‘be’ for a while. It really works!
The body can heal itself naturally in so many ways. It can also self-destruct just as fast if we neglect what it really needs. Food, our environment, our jobs, friends, family, emotions can be our best friends and also our quickest death sentence.
Over the past few years I have really become aware just how big a part our emotions play in our lives. We really can manifest our dreams. Make what we desire a reality. Just as easily we can manifest our own self-destruction.
I started this blog to give back to who ever would like to read and be shared with. I will cover topics based around what I do to live a healthful lifestyle. I will let you into how I achieved the ‘slow way of living.’ It is achievable to ANYONE! I won’t push products or faddy diets on you. I will talk about subjects I truly believe in. Things I do in my life that make a difference to me in a positive way. I will say now. There is no one size fits all answer. What works for me might not work for you. If what I say guides you on the path to discover what is right for you then that’s a job well done.
Enjoy! I hope you all get as much out of this as I will creating it.
Love & light,
