This month I feature beautiful entrepreneur, Zoe Lind van't Hof, founder of Wunder Workshop, whom I met one and half years ago at a Serene Social Shoreditch House event I hosted as their (then) London Lead. Paired together during the workshop I remember how warm, friendly, yet unassuming she was. It wasn't until after, upon exchanging emails I learned of Zoe's budding business, right in my (then) backyard of Notting Hill! It's no "wunder" why it's Europe's first exclusive organic turmeric brand available in the likes of London's high street shops Selfridges and Content Beauty. For centuries people have been using spices for the treatment of various ailments and serious illness, but recently with scientific analysis more people are seeing the wonderful effects of the ingredients found in such superfoods. And Zoe's story behind the brand and her late mother make it all the more loveable. For those of you interested in trying one of their lovely products keep reading for a chance to win their most popular product!
You are enough. You are beautiful. You are meant to be in this world. But somehow this gets lost, downplayed or even muted from circumstances outside our own. As children we’re young and naïve, simply yearning to feel loved and supported. But if your infancy needs were not met this wounded inner child ultimately stays with you emotionally, mentally and energetically. And while we may not remember everything about our childhood but the body remembers. This can manifest in adult life in a multitude of ways such as trust and intimacy issues, addictive/compulsive behaviours, narcissistic disorders and depression. Without a healthy inner healthy life we look for fulfilment outside ourselves. We live a life believing something or someone else can completely us and make us happy and at peace. When in fact, to move forward in life we must reclaim and heal our own inner child, because true fulfilment and peace must come from within.
In the spirit of Throwback Thursday today on my blog I'm sharing an article I wrote for the top U.S. lifestyle media brand Mind Body Green, inspired by my experience back and forth from London to Los Angeles for my father on hospice care. Some of you may or may not be familiar with the powerful benefits of yoga. Today's blog gives a glimpse into how this powerful practice can help you through a crisis. The original article can be found here.
As an avid global traveller, I’m all for experiencing life to the fullest. But I realise (and appreciate) that sometimes leaving may not always be an option. We have responsibilities, commitments and maybe not a lot of holiday (a.k.a. vacation). In today’s blog I share how you can start to live more fully right where you are, without the need for a plane and your passport. It’s about shifting your perspective and letting go of limiting beliefs– even right in your hometown.
Three years ago, I attended my first ever wellness retreat. As I’m writing this a day before attending a wellness retreat, in my hometown of Los Angeles, 6,000 miles away from my new home of Barcelona, I’m reminded and inspired by the life-changing benefits of retreats.
