What do you do to nourish yourself? The obvious answer might be to eat a varied diet rich in wholefoods, drink plenty of water and get a decent sleep each night (good on you!), but we’re talking about nourishment on a deeper level — on a soul level. How do you care for yourself? We’re sure you’re wonderful at caring for your family, meeting important deadlines at work and walking the dog, but what do you do for you? Struggling to find an answer? Don’t worry, we’ve got some ideas. This month, nourish yourself with a massage or facial; get to your favourite yoga class; take a book to the park and lose yourself in it; meditate or journal your thoughts at night; ask for help with the washing or…

The Buddha once wisely said, “Since everything is a reflection of our minds, everything can be changed by our minds.” The environment with which we surround ourselves — both our physical environment and our internal environment — is a direct expression of our discipline, self-respect and dignity. Your reflection, whether from a mirrored surface or from the depths of a meditation, will rebound and ripple out any feelings of harmony or disharmony you may have. This means that in any given moment you have an opportunity to wipe the frosted glass clean, challenge a cloudy thought or alter an opinion that might no longer serve you. As humans, we have the ability to reflect on our choices, make any necessary changes and then sit back, enjoying the spectacular light show…

from the editor-in-chief

Are you courageous? I was made to ponder on courage when prompted by a remark by my eldest daughter (yes, pretty much all my thinking does derive from those wondrous female offspring of mine). We were in the car on the way to dance class when she casually ruminated, “You know, I’m given everything I need in life but I just don’t have the courage to use it.” This little thought bubble sparked a few things in me. For a start, there was awe; self-awareness like this was not part of my pre-teen skill set. To the best of my recollection, when I was 12 my highest thought processes centred around how to get my parents to buy me a fashionable pair of jeans and the recent revelation that sophisticated kissing involved spitting…

what were your intentions for 2018? how have you been tracking with achieving them?

To be more conscious of the environment. I have been achieving this by recycling more and doing more volunteering for charities. The biggest thing I want to do is lose weight and to quit smoking, which is going be hard, but I have an amazing daughter who is going to help me achieve my goals. Denise Campbell My intention for the year is to be more mindful in all aspects of my life; physically, mentally, spiritually and emotionally. I plan to achieve this by keeping a record in my WellBeing Inspirations Diary. Elaine Boyd Our intentions are to help more people this year with their health and wellness than we did last year, especially local kids. Also, to continue on our own health and happiness journey using more primal methods and getting even more…

recent medical findings for a healthier body

A breath of flu It’s autumn/winter and the flu season is not far away. Unfortunately, it’s easier to spread the dreaded flu than you may have thought. In a new study, researchers measured influenza virus in exhaled breath from 142 confirmed cases of people with influenza during natural breathing, speech, spontaneous coughing and sneezing. The analysis of the infectious virus recovered from these samples showed that a significant number of flu patients routinely shed infectious virus, not merely detectable RNA, into aerosol particles small enough to present a risk for airborne transmission just via breathing. Coughing was not necessary for infectious aerosol generation and neither was sneezing. Keeping surfaces clean, washing your hands and avoiding coughing does not stop you spreading the flu. If you do have the flu, rather than…
