Blessed {thank you}

Its taken me a few days to get time to sit down and write this.

Firstly, a HUGE thank you to everyone who helped me with my crowdfunding campaign… it was a SUCCESS!  & I cannot even begin to describe how grateful I am to you. Words cannot portray the love & gratitude I feel in my heart.



‘Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.’ Harriet Tubman 

The truth is, it was a big risk {and scary as hell}, to put myself and my brand out there and just say ‘hey, I need your help’.

As mush as we say its ok to ask for help, how often do we? Yet instead most of us chose to act strong & like everything is perfect with our rose tinted glasses on.

I can honestly say, something had to change for me. This made my decision about the launching the campaign. I couldnt keep doing the little things I was doing, working harder not smarter and making slow progress (yes, progress is still progress). But I knew I was close to burn out.

‘Oh, I was never a businessman. I was a visionary, a dreamer.’ Jim Bakker

With my business, its never had a $ of investment, instead it was created from a need to pay my own living costs and grow itself. & truth be told I love this about my story. I dont even have a credit card so I can instead chose to grow organically. Now, this is great & all, but it can also mean that growth may be slower, or in my case I was struggling to keep up with the growth & needs of my clients (more so on a time limit).

‘I think of myself not just as a dreamer, but as a dream chaser’. Sarah Brightman

So because of you, & my leap of faith, today Im sending of the brand new packaging to China for my first sample…



New packaging front


What do you think? {The Muscle Ball range is Mint Green & the display box is Kraft cardboard}

You see, what you have done, by showing me love, pre ordering & sharing my campaign, is restore my faith (that was getting a little tired from hrs of exhausting myself & Adrenal Fatigue) that I am exactly where I need to be, doing exactly what I should be doing (my recent Angel reading also said this). Youve shown me that there is a need for a product like mine (1 year of business also shows this), and that together, we, the people can make a change. This is EXCITING.

You know just the other day I read an article that McDonalds is losing money… This is success. WE can create a change by learning to love ourselves and  make healthy changes. By learning to listen to our bodies. Instead of focusing on the things you dont like, focus on the things you do and all the good you are blessed with.


Because of the campaign success, I also decided its time to STEP up my game, and my own health so I can be the very best I can be. No more excuses. No more mistreatment of my body (too much sugar, not enough self love). Its time to honour the beautiful body I was created with & give it everything it needs to give me what I need. You eat well, you feel well…such a good circle.

For me, & for my business, but for you. Anyone that takes the time to read my blogs and share my journey with me.

Because I have BIG dreams & I believe in them with every essence of my being. YOU have given me a new opportunity to shine (I CANNOT WAIT TO RELEASE THE NEW PRODUCT).


And Im doing the work. So many people say they want to do their own thing, but their not prepared to do the work. Not prepared to get up an hr earlier, go to bed an hr later, say no to social engagements & commit themselves fully to their dream.

I am. The next 3 months I have given myself to do everything I can to bring a better & improved product & company to you. Regardless of the weekends missed, I know what Im running towards, the dreams that are becoming my reality. Im prepared to go without do my business can go with.

Can you see yours? Do you know where your going? What are you running towards???

Its so easy to get confused & off track, I mean theres so much competition out there & entrepreneurship isnt easy. But if you believe, even 2 steps forward, 1 step back…sideways or upside down…it doesnt matter. Your headed in the right direction. Trust, faith & believe in yourself always.

‘There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work, and learning from failure.’ Colin Powell

My current frame of mind is taking from one of the greatest businessmen in history; Henry Ford, who knew nothing about the Steel industry but built a team around him of people who were experts with what they knew so he could do what he did best. And its a pretty special place to be, to be able to have a business coach (who makes me do homework & get out of my own mind), a graphic designer to bring a professional product to you, a lawyer to get everything that needs to be done, done, an accountant to look after all my figures, an intern to do the little things and today interviewing staff for the kitchen, so I can do what I love doing & do best… including writing, coaching & being the dreamer I am.

‘Keep your dreams alive. Understand to achieve anything requires faith and belief in yourself, vision, hard work, determination, and dedication. Remember all things are possible for those who believe.’ Gail Devers

I am blessed & grateful. Thank you.

Love & light, Charlie x.

Because together, we can make a change in the world.


Successful; you already are.

All to often we run around creating chaos and ‘busyness’ in our lives; working hard, aiming higher, claiming that when we achieve ‘that’, get ‘that’ or do ‘this’, we will be happy.

But will we?


The answer of course is no. If you cannot learnt to be happy with all that you have now, how will you be happy with more?

Material things; that promotion, that house, $$$, do not guarantee happiness.

Yet we claim these as symbols of success.

‘Everyone chases after happiness, not noticing that happiness is at their heels’ Bertolt Brecht

We use our ‘busyness’ as a sign of success; the busier we are the more important/successful we think we are.

Success, derived from the Latin succedere, means ‘to go on well’. Surely this would imply that success is a journey?

We {myself included} wake up with thoughts of ‘just do it’, ‘you can have it all’, ‘make it happen’, now Im not saying these are not good thoughts, but what is your ‘it’? What is ‘it’ that you are striving for.

Is it material? Or is it to inspire? Is it to love more? Emotional/spiritual goals?

Happiness is not an ‘it’ and the more you chase it the more difficult it will become to achieve.

‘If your definition of success has little or no measure of love in it, get another definition’.


Tell me, if you were to go to sleep every night content and happy…is this success?

We often read bibliographies of great men, who upon their last words wished they had made more time for the things that mattered; their family, their wife…their loved ones. See, they’ve realised, just a little to late,  that love is what it is all about. At the end of the day. Everyday. It all comes down to love.

‘The intelligent man quickly realize the importance of gold’ Hafiz

What is really important to you?

If love is important, how can you have more love in your life today?

If happiness is important, how can you be happier today?

If health is important, how can you be healthier today?


{I just adore this, who will swim in the rain with me?}

Be present now. Whilst yes, I am a dreamer and I have BIG plans, when I find myself daydreaming {this includes interior designing & launch party invite creations} I have to make a conscious effort to return to the moment, to today. Because if I don’t, If I spend my time to far in the clouds, to far in the ‘when I’ thoughts, the things that actually need to be done to make this dream come true, wont be.

Do you do what you love everyday?

Do you smile with someone everyday?

Do you exercise, eat healthy everyday?

These are moments of success.

‘Dont aim for success if you want it; just do what you love and believe in, and it will come naturally.’ David Frost.


{I am so blessed to receive such kind words like the above, truly makes my heart smile, and keeps me going when those not so great things happen, as they do in business, love, life.}

It is a proven fact that happier people are more productive. So saying something like ‘I am happy with my work’ will generate a positive outcome. Saying something like’ I hate work’ wont.

If today you can just be a little better than yesterday, your already on your way to creating your own dream reality.

‘Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm. Winston Churchill.

Even the above quote states that success is to keep going. If you ask me about business, happiness or love {not that I know a whole lot, I make mistakes everyday, but I am trying}, my words to you, to anyone would be to find what makes you happy, believe in yourself and never quit.

Just keep going.

Love & light, Charlie x.

Love right now. No matter where you are in your life, or what is happening, you are exactly where you should be & everything will always be ok.


Authentic Success

Are you waiting until you  the hot husband, the white range rover, the multi million $ house to feel successful?

Would you believe me if I said you are already successful with everything you have; right now, in this exact moment?

‘Dont aim for success if you want it; just do what you love and believe in, and it will come naturally.’ David Frost


Would you feel it?

So what if you dont have all the things society says you should.

Success is what you make of it. The definition means; the accomplishment of an aim or purpose.

So what is your aim, what is your purpose?

For me, my purpose is to share love, daily, to create change in the world. To inspire just one person with my thoughts and actions, and with Clean Treats, its the fact that just one choice {#charliesballs} is a healthier choice for one person. Its these small daily healthy habits that can create change.


‘Not all of us can do great things. But we can do small things with great love.’ {Mother Theresa}

This is my business & brand belief.

‘Take up one idea. Make that one idea your life – think of it, dream of it, live on that idea. Let the brain, muscle, nerves, every part of your body, be full of that idea, and just leave every other idea alone. This is the way to success.’ Swami Vivekananda


If you take a moment to breathe, be still and reflect on the true beauty that is in your life…Im pretty sure you’ll see success.

Ive recently felt my heart hurt a little from both old and new love, and instead of feeling that I will always be unsuccessful in relationships, Im trying to find peace and calm with the great relationships/friendships I have built.  I’ve been quite overwhelmed with the love and support of my close friends…and arent friendships still a relationship with others? Although it may not be romantical love, its still a relationship between 2 people and Im choosing to value these; this is success (rather than create stress and drama in my life, with ‘I will never have a good relationship/marriage’ thinking).

‘To succeed in life, you need two things: ignorance and confidence. Mark Twain

What we focus on grows. Im not saying its ok to just be happy where you are in life, Im a big believer in pushing yourself, getting outside of your comfort zone and really finding what makes you happy, but instead of chasing success, or making the statement we’ve all to often heard, or say to ourselves ‘ Ill be happy when…’, why not find happiness now, in this present moment? Actively change your thoughts to appreciate all the blessings you have.


This is the happiness trap.

Be happy now with what you have whilst working for all that you dream of.

Stop comparing where you are on your own journey to where other people are. Comparison really is the thief of all joy. Thats their life, not yours and as glamourous/perfect it can appear to be on their ‘highlight reel’ (social media), I can promise you, it’s not. We all have our own challenges and fears. Its our decision whether we choose to work through and overcome them or let them get the better of us.

‘Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.’ Winston Churchill

Success, it’s about being ok with who you are, where you have been and where you are going.

‘Always be yourself, express yourself, have faith in yourself, do not go out and look for a successful personality and duplicate it.’ Bruce Lee


Being grateful (yes, everything I do always comes back to my ‘attitude of gratitude’ belief) for every perfect and not so perfect thing in your life. The bad happens so we can appreciate the good, the dark comes before the light, and mistakes are just proof that you are trying.

‘Strive not to be a success, but rather to be of value.’ Albert Einstein

What is your greatest success?

Love & light, Charlie x.

Today I am so so grateful for the time and love I have invested into the world around me, my relationships, because in my time of need/hurt I’ve been shown what true success is…love.


Monday Motivation…Noa Reis {Vie Activewear}

I have recently fallen in love.

With this years ‘must have’ fitness wear label …Vie Active 

Today I would like to introduce you to Noa Ries, the co-founder of one of Australia’s premium activewear brands.

“You are never given a dream without also being given the power to make it true.” Richard Bach



You are the co-founder of one of the hottest/sexiest fitness wear labels of the moment, what do you attribute this success to?

Firstly, thanks so much for the lovely compliment! It is so exciting to know that an idea that started as a vision and a concept for doing things differently is being responded to so well around the world. I think part of this is due to the fact that I used to be a personal trainer and I created the range with people who sweat for a living in mind.  Women who don’t want to compromise style for functionality.


When did you decide to you wanted to be involved in the health industry?

I’ve always been incredibly passionate about health and fitness.  I decided to become a personal trainer when my husband and I moved to Singapore in 2008 and its health & fitness have been embedded in my life ever since.


1391746_10152122922993619_673985858_nWhen did you decide to begin Vie active?

One afternoon I had an epiphany to create the range after realizing I was spending my LIFE in activewear and would often get to the end of the day feeling cold/clammy and really quite daggy! I set out on a mission to create truly technical activewear that would enable me to do an intense workout but would also be chic and stylish enough to wear all day long. Vie Active started with the finest quality Merino wool – an incredibly unique fabric and the ultimate performance fibre as it is naturally temperature regulating, anti-microbial, shape retaining, moisture wicking, odor resistant (I could really go on and on…..!). It’s not only super soft and breathable on your skin but it also allows you to be dry, stink-free, and just as comfortable after the most demanding run, yoga, or boot-camp session. From the beginning, we decided to push the envelope by integrating high definition prints into the Merino fabric to fuse fitness with fashion and function and as a result, our clothes truly do look and feel just as good on the studio as they do on the street.

“Faith is not desire. Faith is will. Desires are things that need to be satisfied, whereas will is a force. Will changes the space around us.” Paulo Coelho

How do you feel as an inspirational figure/mentor?

Honoured and flattered beyond words.

Has there been any challenges along your journey?

Many! Manufacturing is by far our biggest challenge and I think our lack of experience in the fashion industry has been both a positive and a negative for us. On the one hand, its enabled us to think outside the square and push the envelope in terms of product development to envisage something that didn’t exist before (truly technical and fashionable performance wear that can be worn all day long). On the other hand, it’s been a very intense process to create this product and work with our suppliers and manufacturers to get it right and to the highest quality.


How do you maintain balance between your Career and personal health?

I try to do something active every day. More for my mental sanity than anything else. I do a combination of barre workouts, HIIT classes and walking my two daughters in the pram. I try to nourish my body with food that is as clean as possible simply to provide me with the energy I need to get through the day as with a 10 week old, a 2.5 year old and a new business my life is very hectic and busy!

What do you believe are the keys to success in business?

Hard work, putting the customer first (always), doing something you love.

‘To give anything less than your best is to sacrifice the gift.’ Steve Prefontaine

What is your advice for anyone who has a dream?

Listen to your inner voice. Talk to other people you trust and develop your idea to the point that it’s a workable business concept. Don’t get paralysed by analysing, just go and do it!

What can we look forward to next from you?

Lots of new colours, and prints and some new styles plus lots more exciting health & fitness lifestyle content on our blog.

Top 3 healthy tips/advice?

  1. Be Active every day. Even if this means just going for a walk.
  2. Drink at least 2 litres of water each day
  3. Eat healthy fats and minimise sugar in your diet.

Share something no one knows…

I decided to train for and run a marathon after being told by a massage therapist that I didn’t have the “right body” for marathons. It hurt like hell (I couldn’t walk properly for 5 days) but guess what, I ran across the finish line!

“There is no greater gift you can give or receive than to honor your calling. It’s why you were born. And how you become most truly alive.” Oprah Winfrey

I sincerely thank Noa for her time.

Love & light, Charlie x.

If you have a dream, make a goal and dedicate everything you have to make it come true. This is true success. Support others who are living their dream & share love. Create a community of inspiration, and you to will achieve the success you dream off.



Old friends. New friends.

As I have launched myself into the world that is self employment, dream chasing, following my dream, aspiring to inspire {and all the fun stuff called stress that comes with it}, I’m experiencing challenges of a different kind, the type that not everyone can relate to. I have found that as my life is changing immensely I am making connections with new people who just get it. They get me, and the conversations over a green juice flow effortlessly for hrs.

‘Surround yourself with only people who are going to lift you higher.’ Oprah Winfrey



I have felt myself hold onto guilt for not experiencing the same mind-blowing connection with old friends. Guilt because aren’t friends me at to be in your life forever? Guilt for redirecting my time. Guilt for investing my time with people whose lives are flowing in the same direction (like rivers running parallel).

I discussed this manner with someone who was one of these soul inspiring meetings and she justified my truth, people come and go this is the natural flow and ebb of life. As you change your priorities change, your interests change. So it’s not so much about leaving people behind, it becomes how committed are you both to investing in the friendship? Is the friendship worth committing to? (This I cant answer for you, its something you should both decide).

‘I think it’s a very firm part of human nature that if you surround yourself with like-minded people, you’ll end up thinking more extreme versions of what you thought before.’ Cass Sunstein




I no longer choose to spend my weekends a in a dark club consuming ridiculous amounts of alcohol and other substances. I work for myself, every day is vital to my survival…my income. I literally cannot afford to waste a day. My time is my value, not only that, but in my business, I am my greatest asset. If I dont feel 110% on the inside I cannot give 110% to my world around me.

I cannot afford to have a day spent in bed hurting (because my gosh alcohol does). If I say no to a drinking session, or partying why should I experience guilt, after all, is acting in such self harming ways good for either of our health? Surely it’s ok for me to request healthy options to invest our time wisely and nourish and nurture our bodies and minds at the same time?

Spend time with people who sincerely want the very best life has to offer you. People who believe in the beauty of your dreams. People who inspire you.

‘Talking about our problems is our greatest addiction. Break the habit. Talk about your joys.’ Rita Schiano


Life Changes, we change.

‘As you learn who you are, you can better surround yourself with friends who make you a better person, and that sometimes only happens when you disassemble old relationships.’ Maggie Stiefvater


There are people we automatically gravitate to because of a connection. Since releasing my book I have been working hard, I can easily say harder than I ever have before. This is my dream, & to continue living it every moment matters. My time is my investment. I have been lucky enough to connect with beautiful people who just get it, the passion, pressures and direction of a dream, a goal and who understand the trials and tribulations of creating your own business. If I have a deadline, I have a deadline and this means doing whatever it takes to meet it, including working until 1am on a Friday night to get it done, I will do so. (I do enjoy the pressures of deadlines) Not everyone understands this.



I’m not saying new friends are better than old friends, I’m simply asking how committed are both you and your older friend to ensuring the friendship grows? Like any relationship, it takes effort. Respect. Are you being respectful and appreciative of the people in your life? Are you to focused on the good times (partying?) what happens when this is over? There are people who are meant to be in your life for a lifetime, others for a moment. Learn to value each and every person, every connection. Not for what you can get from them, but for what you can give them.

People will come and go, be your true self and create a sense of understanding, life changes, we change.

‘To all the other dreamers out there, don’t ever stop or let the world’s negativity disenchant you or your spirit. If you surround yourself with love and the right people, anything is possible.’ Adam Green

Love & Light, Charlie x.

Friendship is a priceless investment. Are you making the right one?


Envy or celebrate {others success}?

Do you find yourself envious of others success, or do you choose to celebrate their joys?


I have found that sometimes it can be those that are closest to you that dont seem to share with you the same level of happiness in your successes as those who barely know you. Why is it that we can’t enjoy others success freely and instead try to belittle them or the way they have achieved their accomplishments?

‘It’s not people who resent successful people; it’s resentful people who resent successful people.’ Bo Bennett

As Im striving to continue working for myself doing what I love (this is my definition of success) I have fond that I am receiving recognition, support and congratulations from places and people I least expect it from, but perhaps not so much from the people I do (expectations we know only lead you to disappointment).

success3Are we that selfish that we cannot express happiness for people who work hard to follow their dreams?

‘It’s our nature: Human beings like success but they hate successful people.’ Carrot Top

When others believe that you have achieved the success they are yet to find, it can be difficult to swallow. After all we are all out there trying to the very best we can with what we have (or are you?).

‘When you’re around enormously successful people you realise their success isn’t an accident – it’s about work.’ Ryan Tedder

What determines who is successful and who is not?

“The world aint all sunshine and rainbows. Its a very  mean and nasty place, and I dont care how tough you are it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it, you me or nobody is going to hit as hard as life, but it aint about how hard you hit, its about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward.

Thats how winning is done.’ Rocky


Its about how badly you want it.  You have to be prepared to do the work. When you achieve your version of success, you will understand me when I say, it is hard work. You have to keep going, for every 10 no’s there is 1 yes, for every minute there is hours worth of work to do. There are no days off. Work comes before partying. Your dream becomes your reality when you live and breathe it every moment of every day.

‘When you want to succeed as much as you want to breathe, then youll be successful’.  Eric Thomas

I used to gaze wistfully at successful people, people who I thought had it all. It LOOKS so easy. Now, I can tell you I look to those same successful people with full admiration and respect for I am fast learning the highs, the lows the sideway turns that it takes to get there.

There are some people in the world who just don’t like other people success. Resentment. Jealousy. Envy. This says more about them then it does you.

There are some people who are inspired by your success and admire you for dedication to your dream. Offer them a helping hand and keep these people close to you. Positivity breeds positivity.


‘Successful people have a social responsibility to make the world a better place and not just take from it.’ Carrie Underwood

So be one of the ones that celebrates in others successes, you will feel better for it to. Celebrate, be motivated and share love.

The more you help others get what they want, the more ways what you want will come to you. This is true.

Success is hard work. Its saying I can in a world that will tell you you cant. Its believing in yourself when no one else does. Its getting up every time you fall. Its saying, I will not fail.

Love & light, Charlie x.

First, you just have to decide. Decide what you want, who you want to be, then do everything you can to be that person.

‘All successful people men and women are big dreamers. They imagine what their future could be, ideal in every respect, and then they work every day toward their distant vision, that goal or purpose.’ Brian Tracy


Monday Motivation…

‘Adopt the pace of nature:  her secret is patience.’ Ralph Waldo Emerson
I was recently lucky enough to attend a full day training at Tribe the Tree Flower Essences. Ive heard of the healing and beneficial properties of flower essences and have used products such as the Bach flower remedy before so I was excited when I was offered the opportunity to attend and delighted when Tribe of the Tree kindly agreed to sponsor Be Well; 12 steps to Wellness Seminar. You will receive your very own essence Up, Up & Away reminds you to love and approve of yourself no matter what. It invites you to build better boundaries so you regain your sense of balance and feel unaffected by the actions and opinions of others.



Introducing Jayne Tancred: Co-Founder and Chief Tree Hugger at Tribe of the Tree flower essences, a new range of flower essences that offers healing, insight and wisdom, delivered with a healthy dose of loving energy and a cheeky attitude.

NBB: Tribe of the Trees flower essences is fast becoming a well known brand, Why do you think that is?
It’s lovely to hear you say that, because we don’t feel very well known at all yet! We have a long way to go! But I think the reason people feel they are starting to get to know us is that we are very committed to making genuine connections with our customers and our community and having fun doing it, whether that’s in person at an event or online (for example on Facebook).

NBB: When did you decide to you wanted to be involved in the wellness industry? 

I’ve always known that this was the right industry for me – I decided to become a naturopath when I was just 15 or 16, and I’m now in my mid-40s! In that time I’ve worked with some extraordinary people and marketed and sold some fantastic products. My business partner, Scott Harris, has also been in the industry for about a decade, and specialises in manufacturing and quality assurance, so between the two of us, we have a lot of experience in this area.


NBB: Has there been any challenges along your journey?

Absolutely. We’ve had to work really hard to get up and running on a very tight budget, while also juggling our existing careers. There have also been the inevitable trial and error moments when various things have gone wrong along the way, and like any new business it has been a steep learning curve.

‘Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished.’ Lao Tzu

NBB: How do you maintain balance between your Career and personal health?

It’s tricky sometimes, but I’ve learned that every day flows more smoothly if it starts with meditation. Getting outdoors is also very important and restorative for me – especially among the trees.

NBB: How do you feel as an inspirational figure/mentor?

No-one has ever called me anything like that before, so your question has floored me a little! What I will say is that the work I do has made me extraordinarily happy and has inspired me in a way that I’ve never been inspired before. Both of those feelings are quite contagious, and so we do often get people telling us that Tribe of the Tree has prompted them to look after themselves better, take positive steps towards realising their dreams, or to finally address issues that have been holding them back for ages. That is an extraordinary privilege for us and we look forward to being able to have an even more positive influence on people’s lives as we grow.

‘I believe that there is a subtle magnetism in Nature, which, if we unconsciously yield to it, will direct us aright.’ Henry David Thoreau

NBB: What do you believe are the keys to success in business?
I think it’s different for everyone. Our business sells energetic healing products, so our own energy and intentions are vital to our success. Patience, persistence and above all a strong vision are essential for any business person though, I think.

NBB: What is your advice for anyone who has a dream?

You don’t need to work out all the logistics at the beginning. The first and most important step is to have a vision that is powerful enough to guide you and draw you towards your goal. After that, just start with a single step. I highly recommend our flower essence Destiny Calls™ for anyone in this situation too – it helps you move through the inevitable fears and make that transition from being someone who wants to do something someday to a person who is making it happen NOW. Tribe of the Tree certainly wouldn’t have made it this far without it!


NBB: When can we look forward to next from you?

Our focus right now is on our flower essence workshops, in which we teach people how to work with our products for themselves, their families and their clients. The last Level 1 training for the year will be on Sunday 10th November in Sydney. Next year we’ll also start rolling out Level 2 training, which we’re very excited about!

Share something no one knows

Trees have a great sense of humour, and infinite quantities of wisdom and healing energy to share with us all.

‘Look at the trees, look at the birds, look at the clouds, look at the stars… and if you have eyes you will be able to see that the whole existence is joyful.  Everything is simply happy.  Trees are happy for no reason; they are not going to become prime ministers or presidents and they are not going to become rich and they will never have any bank balance.  Look at the flowers – for no reason.  It is simply unbelievable how happy flowers are.’ Osho


Top 3 wellness tips:

1. Loving yourself unconditionally is the doorway to all aspects of health and wellbeing. It almost makes it inevitable that you’ll look after your diet and lifestyle, nurture your heart and prioritize your emotional needs. Unfortunately, for many of us, opening up to and accepting that self-love feels difficult – and sometimes even selfish. For those who’d like some extra support on their journey, I highly recommend our flower essenceUp, Up & Away, which reminds you to love and approve of yourself no matter what, and regardless of the opinions of others.

2. I’ve learned (the hard way!) that many of the things in life we think are complicated or difficult are only so because of our mindset. It’s okay to take the easy way, and it usually yields better results too!

3. Spending time amongst trees has been scientifically proven to lower your blood pressure and your stress levels – and it’s fun and spiritually uplifting too!

I sincerely thank Jayne for her time and generous contribution to Be Well; 12 steps to Wellness   (
