Long distance flying is tough. Tough on the body, tough on the brain, and tough on sleep patterns. Irritability, fatigue, constipation, and insomnia are just a few of the consequences of spending 24+ hrs on a plane. It doesn’t matter if you are on a long-haul flight for business or pleasure, the impact it can have at the other end …
There is no denying that we all live in a pretty stressful world. Without even going down the rabbit hole of the countless global events that can bring on the stress response every time we watch or listen to the news, just our day-to-day lives seem to be a never-ending experience of tension, anxiety and disorder.
I met Kirsty – The Travelling Ergonomist – at a workplace wellness conference last year. Until this time, I under-estimated the power of a scientific-based ergonomics program in a workplace…and how interesting this topic is when presented by someone as awesome as Kirsty.

This healthy recipe is not only jam-packed with delicious ingredients that will nourish your body, but it is also quite a show-stopper at a dinner party.

It’s hard to believe how quickly each year goes by and before we know it, the workload has got so high that the thought of taking time off to go on holidays seems unrealistic. Isn’t this the story for most Australian workers?
This week I was honoured to be chosen by Dr. Kirstin Ferguson for her incredible Celebrating Women project. This amazing initiative celebrates two women every day, from around the world, for being role models to other women &/or girls.
This time of year can be stressful and overwhelming. There are Christmas parties, end-of-year functions, presentation nights, staff dinners, budgeting meetings, planning meetings, and school holiday preparation … to name just a few!
It is that time of year again when there are lots of Christmas parties and client functions where the food is plentiful and the drinks are flowing. Sticking to a plan that ensures you still look and feel fabulous does get a little harder.
I am not sure about you but I believe that when you are working full-time it is pretty difficult to have work / life balance.
