GUEST POST BY SUSANA FRIONI. That white space on your schedule that was originally booked for yoga, has somehow been taken over with answering emails, taking that phone call, finishing that project, catching up with friends, taking care of the family, attending that social event, scrolling through social media, and working longer hours.

The first time I really understood how much I needed alone time was in high school. It was school holidays and I had spent a few days hopping around between my friend’s houses, bag full of enough clothes to last me indefinitely. It was early evening and I was hungover and tired. This was the first time I’d grown sick of being in the company of others and all I wanted was hangout by myself. I called my dad to come and pick me up, went home and shut myself away in my room with a movie (How Stella Got Her Groove Back) and a whole satay chicken pizza to myself.

These are no ordinary times that we live in. I think it goes without saying that we have access to more information than ever about wellness, health and vitality. With the click of a few buttons we can find information about anything! The options that are presented to us are infinite and that itself breeds confusion. It seems that the main question for our generation is not what to do but how to make it last.

There are only a few days to go until we launch the first segment of healthtalks, so it’s probably about time I stopped teasing about what exactly we’ve got going on.

Since we first mentioned our plans a few weeks back, on all of our blogs and on the Facebook page, there’s been a lot of speculation and comment from many of you about where we might be seen, which channel we might be on, and at what time?

I love how the universe works. Not so long ago I was thinking about how cool it would be to feature more healthy foodie guys on my website. If you ask me, there is nothing cooler or sexier than a dude who cares about health. Then, a couple of weeks ago I received an email from the wife of Aussie pro body boarder David Winchester. She told me all about how their family lives an organic life, and when she said that David would be keen to be featured as a celebrity foodie, I jumped at the chance to quiz him.

GUEST POST BY DR NATALIE KRINGOUDIS.

Before we get into the nitty gritty of today’s post – I can’t let the recent launch of ‘the new pill’, Yaz Flex, slip on by without comment. The headline “new pill adds comfort for women” on news.com.au certainly got the heart started. Not in a good way, but in the shape of palpitations, clammy palms and a knee jerk reaction to turn my radio down as quickly as my sweaty fingers would allow because, on my part, there is little comfort in this story.

Way back before I really and truly understood the limitless benefits of living a wellness warrior lifestyle, vanity was the driving force behind so many of my lifestyle decisions. Which is why I believe the message in this article will have such a wide reach. If you won’t refrain from eating chemicals to save your ass, maybe you will do so in order to save the size of it.

GUEST POST BY DR GREG SCHREEUWER.

I have been on my personal development journey for about 6 years now and in that time, I have learnt various techniques, been to loads of seminars and read so many self help books, as I am sure many of you have. In all that time, I kept receiving a constant message but I wasn’t too sure what to do with it so I kind of overlooked it. The message was: learn to love and appreciate who you are in order to have success in your life. This message has been filtering in and out of my life, probably for a lot longer than these 6 years, but I only truly decided to do something about it, very recently, thanks to my interesting experience with the joys and thrills of immigration and all the associated red tape.

It is very true that the simplest healing tools are the most powerful. It’s also true that these are the ones that are most often over looked. This is especially the case when it comes to the topic of today’s blog post: nature.

It’s no surprise that a few years ago my body had to resort to drastic measures to get me to give it what it needed. I was living a life of excess when it came to alcohol, drugs and bad foods; but I was living a life of lack when it came to aligning with nature.
