My kids my world - Mothers love challenging times staying true #selfcare#mothers#values#truefoodandyoga link in bio @balancingactnz still smiling 😃🙏♥️ whatever you do in this life do it with love it's a practise not a perfection, every mistake is an opportunity to retake
it'll sound simple but often simple is best- chaotic day? find a set of steps near you, and climb them till you're at the top- it's near impossible to dwell on anything else but the physical climb when you're mid-ascent -- and when you're at the top? wave hello to a little friend named endorphins #selfcare#city#getthosestepsin#climb#sf

Sometimes injuries come up to tell you to slow the fuck down! .
I only had this epiphany yesterday as I was walking at my fave spot😂 I slowed my pace way down and even sat in the sun for a while. My back pain seemed to melt away. .
Think I'll be taking my yoga practice, walks etc much more slowly this week ❤
Dear Straight Men, ~
You do not need to be big and ripped to feel valued. This comes from within. ~
You do not need validation from women to be happy. You need to work on yourself before draining yourself to support a significant other. ~
You do not need to sacrifice your happiness and wellbeing to make others happy or to provide for them, you come first. ~
You do not need a high status job to be valued, just one that makes you happy. ~
Do not be ashamed of your masculinity, it can be a beautiful thing. On the other hand, do not be ashamed of your feminine side. You are just as much of a man with feminine traits. ~
Do not be ashamed of finding women attractive. It does not make you a misogynist, it’s a natural response. Just be respectful. ~
You are no less of a man if women or men abuse you, sexually, physically or emotionally. ~
Just because she is a woman, does not mean she has the right to harm you, use you or abuse you. Women are not as weak as often thought to be, therefore can cause serious harm to others. Stand up for your rights, tell the authorities and seek justice. Make your voice heard and speak up for the many men who are abused by women, but are too scared to speak out. ~
Never be ashamed of feeling pain and needing help. ~
Never feel ashamed of being a man. ~
Never be ashamed of being yourself.
I n v e s t
In yourself, because you are worth it. Always. .
Love yourself in a world that can make it easy not to. You got this!
It's ALWAYS the right time to do things that feel good and positive and to make changes in your life that get you on that path!! #morningmotivation#mood#courage#investinyourself#selfcare

I'm taking a small break from my usual aesthetic to post this. Since arriving at Martin, I have experienced more and done more with my life than I'd ever thought possible. Though it's been just a short time, I feel as if I am changing into what I'm meant to be. But of course with changing comes hard work, and with hard work unfortunately comes stress. Lately I've felt as if I'm one step behind everyone else; I feel down and with one successful completion comes another due date. Stress, as you all already know, takes its toll on the human body. Lately I haven't felt very happy with how I've looked because of stress, and it seems like the hard work I had put in to be healthy before was for nothing. I know that my perception is much more critical because I am very critical of myself. I wanna do my best and I want to look my best. Yet I hate on myself. But for what? I have a boyfriend that believes I am the most beautiful girl in the world, friends and family supporting me, and I was created by God's own hands from the moment I was conceived. What I look like reflects what I have gone through and what I am going through. It's hard to remember, but you've got to talk to you and look at you the way someone who loves you talks to you and sees you. Believe me when I say that self-love is one of the greatest qualities to have. Like everything else I pursue, it takes work. It takes getting up in the morning and looking in the mirror, and recognizing the beauty you already have. It takes talking yourself through a bout of insecurity, or talking yourself down from anxiety. It takes dedication and love. It's not selfish to love yourself. It's not selfish to be proud of your accomplishments so long as you are humble. It's not selfish to recognize how strong you are and how smart you are and how your existence matters. It's a lifelong love that needs to be cultivated. I share my struggle because I want anyone who has gone through hating how they look to know they're not alone. Don't let your mind become a bully. Fight back, loves. Always fight back. 🌞🌺
Day 25 #YogaGirlChallenge ✨ THIS 🙌🏼 This has become my nightly ritual. I sit on the couch, watching TV, debating if I'm too tired to do yoga. I finally get up, do a forward bend or downward dog, & the rest flows. I can't even remember life pre salt lamps & palo santo 🔥✨🔮✨🔥 #SelfCare#LetYourHairDown#YogaEveryDamnDay @yoga_girl
It's excitement plus as we approach the opening of The Wellness Hub @fernwoodmaroochydore
#thewellnesshub is a safe space for women on the Sunshine Coast. An informal learning hub providing scientific and research proven information across the broad elements of wellbeing. The Wellness Hub is dedicated to supporting women through the process of integrating the new learning and behaviours into their daily lives.
Wellness underpins a vital, confident, joyous and fulfilled existence. The ability to harness wellness throughout different life stages and unique conditions is a gift each and every one of us is worthy of experiencing.
Crafting and sustaining wellness through a lifetime requires new education, an integrated and individualised focus, and support across 8 key elements:
- Emotional Literacy
- Self-care + Self-compassion
- Rest + Restoration
A WORD ON WHY.
Wellness is not a one-size-fits-all process. It requires more than just exercise, and both myself and Fernwood Fitness Maroochydore are committed to the woman as a whole.
Our physical and emotional systems, experiences and beliefs are uniquely different, and often concentrating on one area alone leads to frustration and unsustainable change. The Wellness Hub is dedicated to ongoing holistic enlargement and sustainable outcomes.

Take care and be well,
High quality friendship is a requirement for a high quality life.
Friends play such an important role in our mental, emotional and physical wellbeing.
So it's seems like a pretty wise choice to be selective and discerning when it comes to building these connections considering the long term impact and high degree of influence these dynamics have on who we become in this world.
Your life is precious, keep people in it who know and honor that. 💗💗💗
Self love, image & beauty 💫
I know a lot of us girls struggle with the way we feel about ourselves sometimes, and we are shamed from feeling this way. Constantly having thoughts or people telling you how you should be to be beautiful and to be accepted. You have to have good hair, clear skin, have abs, toned legs and be a size 6 etc society's list of acceptance and standards goes on and on and it just weighs on our shoulders am I right!? We are all guilty of looking in the mirror a bit too long and over analysing our bodies. And the worst bit about it is that we look for words of affirmation from someone else to tell us we are worthy, that "yes that looks so good on you", that you are good enough. When in fact, you are MORE than enough.
I remember struggling with all of the above about 2-3 years ago. I would immediately feel guilty after eating something like a cookie. But practicing self love, being less critical of my own self led me to the confident person I am today. We are all made in the image and likeness of Jesus, someone who is all things beautiful and glorious.. we are his finest work made with his own hands with care and precise detail. We don't ever look into Jesus' beautiful work such as his sunsets and flower beds and think of such negative things.. we don't look at these breathtaking sunsets in disgust. So why do we look at his finest work (ourselves) and think these things?
Remember the temple that your body is and the unique treasure that you are. Go get yourself some real ladies and soul sisters who empower you and who see the beautiful in you 😍
