Forget About Resolutions This Year, Set Intentions Instead.by Tamara Selaman
When it comes to kicking off a New Year the first thing we all do is start making resolutions.
Usually the same resolutions year after year; lose weight, stop drinking, start working out 5 x a week, save more money and come the middle of January those are all but a distant memory and that strong desire you had to make major life changes has left you.
It’s something we all go through but there is a way around it. Instead of making resolutions, set intentions instead. The theory is that resolutions, whilst they are goals, they often set us up for failure from the very start because whilst we vow to lose weight, drink less or learn a new hobby we don’t set a plan on how to achieve to it.

So where did the term shinrin-yoku come from?
Easy Ways To Practise Self Careby Tamara Selaman
Self-care is one of the most important things you can do, not just for yourself but for those around you. If you ever feel guilty for indulging in a spot of daily self-care then just remember that you can’t feed from an empty cup.

What does Biohacking your Health mean?by Tamara Selaman
Some of us are continually searching for answers to our health. To live that thriving existence, and feel our best.
We tend to jump between practitioner to practitioner and a lot of the time this takes us backwards. The body may be in shock and overwhelm, and in need of nourishment and some consistency.
Exhausted and lacking inspiration, we are desperate for answers and don't feel heard.
If we listen to our self talk, and our mindset, this is often affecting our healing and health, and blocking the flow.
The answers are not one magic pill, one magic therapy nor one magic test.
Healing is a comprehensive approach.
Balance is Key, Breathing can help. Try this!by Tamara Selaman
Only through balance we can exist and live as long as we can. Balance is key to our existence.
There are writings that say that no dis-ease can exist if the system is in balance. An interesting concept and idea.
Balance is one of the fundamental laws of the universe. It applies to everything, either in the fact that it is balanced or in the fact that it’s in a state of flux trying to retrieve it.
As a part of the universe, the constant tendency to find balance applies to every aspect of our life. We are forever in search of peace and tranquility unconsciously.
Live your life on purpose.
BREATHING well can make a difference to your mind body and emotions in minutes.
