My 2018 Roundup

My 2018 Roundup

My wonderful organic friends!

Can you believe that another year has passed already? I cannot! I hope you are all prepped (who am I trying to kid) and ready for the glorious season that is Christmas.

I thought I would share with you my top 6 take a ways and things I’ve learned from 2018:

1) We need to start living mindfully and more sustainable – the planet and OUR lives may depend on it! It isn’t as hard as you may think. Save energy by turning appliances and lights off that you are not using. Hang cloths to dry instead of using a dryer. Eat locally, recycle, save water and a whole lot more. Do a little research during the holidays and discover all different things you can do day-to-day to help preserve our future.

2) Exercise makes you feel SO good. All you have to do is simply get out and go for a walk. Not only are you improving your fitness but your well-being too. It will boost your confidence and energise you. This brain’s dopamine production will increase and make you feel happy. So exercise and be happy.

 
Start walking in the afternoons.

3) Always, always, always beware of magpies on your walk or riding around known nesting areas. These fearless parents WILL swoop you during breeding season and you WILL graze your knee or lose an eyeball #truestory

4) Stress is a silent killer. Being busy and stressed is not something to brag about or a sign of success. Take time out every day to relax and breathe deeply. You can’t afford not to! Less stress equals a happier, healthier life.

5) Don’t be a water snob… ANY water is better than NO water. Yes filtered water is the best option, but your body has an inbuilt filtration system (hello liver and kidneys) so it can handle tap water if that’s all you’ve got at your disposal.

6) Indoor plants also make you feel so good. It’s fun nurturing something and seeing it thrive. They are the flatmates you didn’t know you needed. Just having them around can also help lower blood pressure, increase attentiveness, lower levels of anxiety and much more. They bring life to the house and a whole lotta’ colour and uniqueness.

 
Let the idea of indoor plants start to grow on you in 2019.

I hope these things give you something to think about and implement into your life over these next few weeks. Have an excellent Christmas season everyone; I look forward to talking to you all again next year!
