sleep well, baby

Sleep deprivation has been used as a torture method for 1000s of years. And it’s effective. Anyone who’s had a few sleepless nights in a row will testify to that.  When I worked as a lawyer I found it almost impossible to switch off. To leave work at work. My mind would buzz. For hours.…

WHAT’S THE BEST THAT CAN HAPPEN?

2017 was a year of STEPPING UP and STEPPING OUT. Propelling forward. Stepping further and further into the unknown. I’ve been stretched and I’ve been challenged. I’ve been WAY out beyond my comfort zone. It’s meant BIG changes in my life. And fear. SH*T loads of it. I’ve been TERRIFIED. But I’ve come to learn…

post podcast

I’m about to board a flight from Sydney to the Gold Coast when I get an email. “I’ve heard a bit about your story” and “I thought it would be awesome if I could get you on our pod to tell the world.” I say yes. I say yes to things that come my way.…

Happiness: The Danish Way

I couldn’t put down The Year of Living Danishly: Uncovering the Secrets of the World’s Happiest Country. It’s perfect weather to stay in and get cosy (or hygge as the Danes would say) with a good book, so I thought I’d shared a little about this pretty entertaining look at Danish culture and society. It’s light, digestible…

Life Allergic to the Cold

I’ve never been good at winter. For one thing I was allergic. Quite literally. Cold air. Cold water. Cold surfaces. Cold urticaria.  It’s a chronic autoimmune disease. The onset is generally between 18-25. Right on schedule mine arrived as I turned 18. A rash of red hives that induced anaphylactic shock. Yep, you can die.…

It took a look at the fertility industry in Australia with a focus on whether clinics are being clear and unambiguous in their advice to patients on their chances of IVF success. If you missed it you can catchup here. It was pretty interesting. It focused on the…
