Christmas – The Beautiful Fantasy
There's no such thing as a perfect holiday season Society has largely agreed that Christmas is all about love and hope and family and togetherness. Yet, what many of us actually experience at Christmas is far from these ideals. We buy more than we can afford, commit to more than we have energy for, eat and drink to excess, and care for ourselves less than we ideally need. Many of us allow ourselves to be pressured into versions of Christmas that are not really satisfying or nourishing and that leave us feeling the opposite to what we should be feeling...

For the Families who Love Someone Struggling with Addiction, Mental Health, and PTSD
What the family need to know There are few things more distressing than watching someone you love head down a seemingly self-destructive path.

Alcohol consumption is so embedded in our culture, that just being born in Australia means you are twice as likely to exceed the recommended daily drinking guidelines than those who live overseas. While for some alcohol use is casual and little cause for concern, a large portion of us, have a less than ideal relationship with it.  So common is the overwhelming feeling of being physically fragile coupled with a sense of anxiety and guilt following a night of drinking, that we have even coined a term for it: ‘hangxiety’. While alcohol is still Australia’s most popular drug, and one...

3 Steps to Develop an Abundance Mindset
The way we think about ourselves and the world around us has the power to impact the course of our lives. Overwhelming research shows a direct link between our mindset and how we adapt to stress, how we create our success, the way we learn, our resilience and even how our immune system functions. An abundance mindset is the fundamental belief that there is enough, while the opposite, a scarcity mindset, is the pervasive feeling of not having enough, no matter what we acquire. Abundance is not only who we are, but how we value ourselves and how much we...
