Tap into ancient wisdom to unlock your ultimate health and well-being.

Trust my words when I say this: when you prioritise self-care and health, your life will start to flow. You’ll learn to trust your inner voice and energy and begin to respond rather than react to the situations around you. When you do this, you’ll unlock your ultimate health and well-being, one step at a time.

Follow my guide below and take your first step.

Breath work

One Solemn Breath 

Breathe – just breathe. This ‘one solemn breath’ causes you to show up, be present and become accountable for yourself. 

Begin with this simple technique I call ‘one solemn breath’. Before you act, take one solemn deep breath in and out. Pause. Create a little space between your thoughts and feelings and your actions. In that moment, pause and choose to respond calmly to the action you were going to do. Think before you act and align your actions with your goal or your life’s purpose. Use that ‘one solemn breath’ to create a moment of space and quiet for you. You deserve it.

Box Breathing 

You can also try box breathing. This technique will lower stress and anxiety levels, which will again help you feel calm and improve your coping skills and overall well-being. 

Breathe in for four seconds, hold for four seconds, breathe out for four seconds and hold for four seconds. Repeat this four times. 

The 4-7-8 breathing technique 

This breathing pattern is based on ancient yoga practices. It will bring you into a deep, relaxed state, so deep its purpose is to help you take a power nap when you need it, to fall asleep or become deeply calm.

 Open your mouth and exhale (breathe out) completely. Then close your lips and inhale through your nose to a count of four seconds, hold the inhale for seven seconds and then do a big, long, slow exhale for eight seconds. Holding your breath for seven seconds is the most crucial. Start with four cycles of this breath and gradually work up to eight. 


Mini Meditations
Build up to incorporating meditation into your daily routine every day.
Begin with guided meditations and consider using an app like Calm or Headspace or even follow along to free meditations on YouTube.

Take a moment to escape. Create some quiet and some space and wander off in your mind. Visualise the details of where you are—the smells, the sounds, the colours, the shapes, the people, the natural elements. Imagine yourself in that scene and visualise yourself in the moment, or maybe it is a time in the future.


Sleep is our recharge. It is our time to restore and replenish. 

Here are my top tips for improving your sleep: 


Joyful Movement

Find an activity you love! This is one of the most freeing things you can do. Your 40 minutes of daily exercise does not all have to be done in one go. You can do 5 minutes skipping, 15 minutes jogging with the dog, ten minutes with the kids on the trampoline, and a 15-minute free aerobics video online, or have a dance party for 15 minutes that evening.

Dance – turn the music up loud, sing your heart out and dance hard. Having little dance parties when no one is watching is so much fun! 

Movement regulates our sensory system. It helps us to wiggle, shake and pound out any stress. It can be energising and calming all in one. 

Do yoga or pilates. Stretch your body. Walk barefoot on the grass or the sand and feel that connection with nature and feel grounded. 

Did you know that the root word for emotion in Latin, emovere, means “to move through”? Movement helps us to let our emotions move through and out of us. 

Start with something you enjoy in nature and bask in the fresh air.

Challenge yourself to try a new movement activity you have never tried:

Calm your senses

Calm your senses by creating mindful multi-sensory experiences.

Engulf your body in calming sensations – the warmth of a bath, calming soothing aromas, visually calming things – from a photo hanging on your wall of some of your best people to a favourite place you have been to or a favourite memory.

Surround yourself with calming sounds as you walk, drive, work and exercise. Play meditative music, listen to acoustic versions of your favourite songs or movie scores and play spa music as you prepare for bed.

Use a diffuser to create beautiful smells and aromas around your home and workspace.

All this will help calm your mind and help you destress and relax.
