Fish On at Gillham’s Fishing Resort – Krabi Thailand

A woman's perspective

Finally after 50 something days my man and I reunited in Thailand! I flew into Phuket and spent a few days relaxing in Nai Yang before making my way to Krabi where Stephen and his friend Wade were staying.

Enter Gillham’s Fishing Resort. This is not your typical, manly “roughing it” fishing camp either. I was blown away by the beauty of this tiny lake in the mountains. The pictures speak for themselves.

Work Life Balance – An Interview

Recently I collaborated with Chariss from C Squared Consulting for a mini interview on maintaining a healthy work/life balance. We all know you should leave work at work at the end of the day when you come home to maintain a happier life but that is getting increasingly hard to navigate with so many of us working from home or running a business/brand from our phones.

Enter in the beloved “me time” or self-love. A slot of time you carve out of your schedule to wind down, do something you love and relax. It can be anything form a bubble bath, to a book or to a yoga class. The truth is we burn out and over exhaust ourselves without these little breaks, so they are actually very beneficial to maintaining a happy home life or staying driven within your side hustle.

My work/life balance is a little different and you can read more about that over here. Also if you’re an entrepreneur or own a small business see all the amazing things Chariss can help you out with.

Lets Get Real: Social Media Detox

Social Media Detox

Social media runs our lives now, well the majority of us. Unless you live in a camper van up a windy road that leads to the top of the mountain where there’s no reception anyway, you probably have a strong love/hate relationship with your phone. For lots of us it is a part of our business or brand, our job, our relationships and how we communicate with people and our daily lives!

A Self-Love Sequence for Valentine’s Day

 

 

Heart Opening Sequence

Since Valentine’s Day is around the corner I think its a good time to start thinking about yourself. Not what you expected me to say? I believe to truly love someone else you must love yourself first. And isn’t the most important relationship you have is the one with yourself?! In life you only have yourself, your thoughts, your actions, yourself to rely on. So I’m giving you permission to treat yourself to your own version of a Valentine’s Day!

YTT Week 4

The final week. Each day was bittersweet with someone saying “This will be the last time we do this, or eat that, or practice this etc.” It got quite emotional as the final day was fast approaching! I remembered back to the first week of those heavy dense lectures and how hard it was to stay awake sitting on that hard cement floor and now the hours were slipping through my grasp, flying by!

I tried to remain mindful and present in every moment this week. I had made myself two tapas; Sit on my balcony each morning before practice and think about 3 things I was grateful for and to compliment others everyday. From my fellow students to the Prashanti staff.
