I’m sure you’ve heard that one of the fantastic benefits of exercise, especially when it comes to your mental wellbeing, is that it boosts endorphins – right?
But it can do SO much more than that, because of one simple mechanism, and I am going to make it really easy for you to understand. Hopefully, the more you understand about how exercise can help you, the more likely you will be to include it into your life. Continue reading
A couple of weeks ago some of my favourite people organised a hike for us at a place called Binna Burra in Lamington National Park, South East Queensland. It was a day filled with so many fascinating conversations, and we all had something we could teach one another as we walked the altogether 17km.
Being in nature with people that I love; it was a perfect day.
This short video hopefully captures the adventure and shenanigans of the day, (complete with dorky nicknames) and is soundtracked by the gorgeous 19th Century Strongmen, whose EP you can purchase here for $4 (it’s a beautiful collection of work, and I highly recommend it). They also have a YouTube channel and Facebook page. The song is called, “Let’s Go”.

With something as simple as investing in a monthly pass to a yoga class, I have experienced so much change in my life.
I have been practicing yoga for around 3 1/2 years and it truly is something that works for me, fitness-wise.

(You can tell just by looking at my disheveled old yoga mat, that it’s been quite a long love affair).
Cultivate Calm Yoga is a beautiful yoga space in East Brisbane, providing a range of different yoga practices and teachers to bring calm and balance to the lives of busy Brisbanites. With our shared interest in stress relief, relaxation, yoga (of course) and anxiety, I was asked to share my best nutritional tips for dealing with and relieving anxiety.
If you follow me on social media, you may have seen that I’m a big fan of going to trivia with my mates. I actually really love trivia, and though my own memory recall for things like names of people, places, etc is pretty terrible, I am quite good at pop culture trivia and the occasional science question and it goes along very well with my incredibly competitive nature. The best thing is, that engaging in activities that stimulate brain activity act like exercise for your brain and by keeping it active, may reduce your risk of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease later in life (all while rubbing it in the faces of that annoying team that used to win all the time but now we do – take that Ramrod!! – competitive? Who, me?).
