Was interviewed by Win TV on 10 Jan 2019 regarding sleep, so thought I would provide further information on what we discussed but could not show due to time restrictions.
Its looking a lot like Christmas! A season where expectations often don't meet reality. For some of us, it a season of joy and happy families enjoying luxurious celebrations. For some of us, it is a time of loneliness and grief. For some of us, it a time of family conflict. Whatever Christmas means to you " do it your way" focusing on what is important to you and what works for you.

This is especially pertinent to women, who often don't have a STOP button and we can get overwhelmed and burnt out, because in our heads we are juggling so many things. Often for men, it can be the same scenario as a lot of men say " I have my list of things to do and my partner/wife's list to do". Jokes aside we all need to improve our self care routine. A good way is to define your OWN self care routine
I am often asked this question, where people feel they are being held back from their true purpose. I believe "your deepest desire is your true purpose". When you are fulfilling your purpose there is a lightness within you and a sense of self (not sure now if I am confusing people).
My sincere wish is everyone finds their true purpose.
While researching ways to feel more connected in a society where 45% of people report feeling lonely, authenticity emerged as a common strategy for combating loneliness. When there’s an gap between what you’re delivering to others and how you’re actually experiencing life, loneliness and insecurity are sure to follow. Why? Well, when you’re not showing people the real you, you can’t be sure the person is choosing you.
Our body is the most amazing interconnected complex system. Often, although things may seem unrelated such as a stressful event, medication, single supplements and certain foods, they can trigger a cascade. Diabetes is a good example of this cascade affecting multiple systems and areas. A great article to share and learn.
Over a cuppa last weekend a colleague and myself discussed the growing trend of losing our boys and men to suicide and displacement, we both agreed we are going to collaborate, although neither of us know what or how at this stage. Watch this space.
In 2007 I wrote a mini thesis on “the narrative that men provide for their violence’. I clearly remember sitting with my professor stunned at ONE of the unexpected discovery that came through that small study, ever since I have been vigilant.
Let us truly rise to hearing all our voices, men’s, women’s and above all else, be aware how children witness how we behave and treat each other as adults.
