Relax, reflect, be inspired, and learn!

Between the worst bushfire season ever, a pandemic sweeping the world, and long-overdue widespread focus on systemic racism worldwide, 2020 turned into an entirely different year than any of us were expecting.

Who else had to pivot in a hurry into remote-schooling superparent? (I discovered that it was easier to get my 8yo to learn to clean the toilet than do schoolwork!) Maybe you had to think triple-time and act eve...

No matter whether you’re stuck in a rut at work or lost in a lull at home, feeling guilty about plans or New Years resolutions that you’ve failed or put off, or even if you just have too much going on, September is the perfect time of year to take a breath and re-boot before the year speeds up again!

Oh my goodness. Is it really more than a year since I posted a blog here? Unfortunately and fortunately, yes... yes it is. 

Both unfortunate and fortunate, Krystyna? Do explain.

How do you know when you’re really well? This is the conclusion to my "Seven Dimensions of Wellness" miniseries. With Christmas only days away and the prospect of a New Year delightfully (or terrifyingly) close, it's time to reflect on how well you are in all areas of your life...

How do you feel when you are well?

What does being “well” mean to you? Last time, we talked about what wellness is and if you have it. C...

We all have struggles in life, and sometimes it can be hard to know how to deal with the pain. Today I'm talking about dealing with internal distress and discomfort. Our minds can often become the problem, but we can take responsibility for our minds, experiences and choices so that we can live and serve more effectively despite the problems

How do you know when you're really well? Today I start talking about the seven dimensions of wellness. With Christmas just around the corner and the spectre of New Years Resolutions lurking, take my quiz to reflect on just how "well" you are in all areas of your life.

Not-so-coincidentally, it also happens to be Mental Health Month here in NSW, which this year has the theme "Learn and Grow". From their website:
