    Wellbeing Tips for Lockdown

    There are a whole lot of emotions that come with being "in lockdown"... I know myself I have felt frustrated, angry, sadness and worry, but also pride, calmness and gratitude. It is Lockdown 4.0 here in New Zealand and it has hit us all in the feels hard! We have managed to keep Covid-19 at bay for quite a while, so maybe that it...

    Be Your Own Inspiration

    If I were to ask you who inspires you, could you dare to say yourself? They say that life works in cycles, and as I write this, I am on the cusp of it being 7 years since I shut down my business after a sexual assault and an accident 3 days later that broke me mentally, emotionally and physically.
