Saying NO for your Health with Alexandra Quirk

Saying NO to people is hard, but saying NO to our old copping behaviours and substances can be even harder. In this podcast Alexandra speaks about how saying No to these behaviours / people is giving your body space to rest and digest. Something that we are missing in our current world. In fact Alexandra shares with us how our mind becomes addicted to stress, taking on more than we can handle and then turning to alcohol and caffeine (insert any other stress activating substance) to keep our body in that stress response. Perhaps you might start considering swapping out your second cup of coffee with a herbal tea instead?

Saying NO for Your Health with Jennylee Taylor

Saying NO to others is saying YES to yourself. Lucy talks with Jennylee Taylor about what it means to say YES to yourself and taking responsibility for teaching people how to treat you. Saying yes to yourself reconnects you with your internal power and saying yes to everyone else gives YOUR POWER AWAY and also doesn’t serve the other person either. They share real personal examples and the reasons why we tend not to say NO and how it can be a win/win for everyone.

Saying NO for Your Health with Robyn Cruickshank

Why is it so hard for us to say No?

In this Podcast Robyn talks about her owned lived experiences with saying NO for her health and how her body had to say NO for her at times. When we say no its common for us to feel guilty especially if we identify as being people pleasers. Have a listen to hear how meditation helps us to SAY NO for our health and YES to self care and self love.

Pilates is a wonderful exercise to work on all the supportive muscles that keep us our best and healthiest self. It can be a great form of exercise to do in recovery from an injury.

Naturopathy

Not all naturopaths are the same. In fact most naturopaths have a specialised field of study that really defines who and what types of symptoms they might treat. Jo, our resident naturopath has a keen interest in also exploring the emotional contributors to a physical symptom as well as supporting the physical system. Her treatment is considered and thought provoking as she guides you to listen to your body and take your health into your own hands. 
Listen in to this podcast to get a feel for how Jo works.
