Say Goodbye to Feeling Irritable and Hello to Mental Calm and Clarity.

Say Goodbye to Feeling Irritable and Hello to Mental Calm and Clarity.

Low mood, irritability, fatigue, poor sleep, brain fog ... sound familiar?

These are all signs of stress and burn out. While our day to day lives cannot be devoid of stress, thankfully, we can take control of how we handle and react to stress. Be Genki BALANCE has been specifically designed with the modern woman in mind. Continue reading

Planting seeds of hope when we feel helpless

Planting seeds of hope when we feel helpless
I initially didn’t want to post anything about the fires. Thoughts of, how can anyone possibly put in to words what is going on, and more relevantly, what has been going on for far too many years? And then there’s social media … the blaming, shaming, attacking and writing vitriol on people’s posts and pages. For me, it is all too reminiscent of The Hunger Games movie. Communities turning on one another. So I logged off. Continue reading

Sensible sunshine tips (and not falling for fearmongering)

Sensible sunshine tips (and not falling for fearmongering)
Research shows that sunshine has a significant effect on mental health and wellbeing and is recommended in the treatment of depression; for treating psoriasis, eczema and acne; and for regulating circadian rhythms (our internal body clock that when disrupted can result in sleep disorders).

Being the Change We Wish to See in the World

Being the Change We Wish to See in the World
I wholeheartedly believe that every choice we make has an impact. We vote every single day with our dollar by supporting the kind of world which we’d like to live in. We may feel like we are just one little person, but this is so far from the truth. Our choices matter. And it’s the seemingly insignificant choices which matter the most. Such as what brand of moisturiser we choose to purchase, or toothpaste, or toilet paper, or t-shirt.  Continue reading

Reflections on Be Genki

Reflections on Be Genki

Many moons ago - mid 2005 - I created a blend of essential oils to help ease anxiety and mild depression. At the time I thought I was just creating it for one of my best friends. So, I selected the most precious botanicals that are renowned to help relieve stress, anxiety and depression. All organic of course. And all in a perfectly balanced proportion to bring about the desired result. It was a blend that was born out of pure love.

How to take better care of your breasts

How to take better care of your breasts
It’s that time of year again when we start seeing pink nearly everywhere we turn. Little pink ribbons, and various companies jumping on the ‘pink ribbon’ campaign to focus on breast cancer and its impact on those affected by the disease. There is a LOT that we can do to help promote better breast health. Buying a beauty product containing known endocrine disruptors is not one of them.  Continue reading

Balance – meeting your physical, emotional and spiritual needs

Balance – meeting your physical, emotional and spiritual needs
Sometimes when we get dis-ease in the body, it has nothing to do with 'catching a virus' or 'catching a bug' or 'pulling a muscle', but more so to do with some other underlying emotional issue or unresolved issue from the past; and sometimes we create the dis-ease, pain or discomfort ourself on the subconscious level, and other times something different altogether, beyond the rational thinking mind.

Happy and healthy relationships - what does it really take?

Happy and healthy relationships - what does it really take?

Clearly, there’s no cookie cutter mould for the ‘perfect’ relationship, as each and every one of us has a different idea about what the ‘deal’ is when it comes to a relationship. Our expectations, understandings, and the type of ‘arrangement’ that we’d like to make with that other person we choose to be with is very individual. There are, however, common elements that when put in to practice, can invite and create happy relationships, irrespective of what the ‘deal’ is.

Water. The first place to start when it comes to our health

Water. The first place to start when it comes to our health

There are many things that I’m grateful for when it comes to my life. One that I’d love to expand upon in this post, is all to do with those who have quenched my curiosity for water.

I certainly can’t say that I understand water, or how it behaves. But what I can say, is that I know a little bit more about the kind of water that is beneficial to drink than I did a few years ago.

Considering how crucial water is to the health of our body, mind and being ... water, as far as I'm aware, is the very first place to start when it comes to daily self-care or in more extreme instances, 'healing' any state of dis-ease.

When do we feel beautiful?

When do we feel beautiful?

What does 'beauty' mean? From my point-of-view it’s an ever-changing judgment that society places upon us, with the expectation of what we are meant to look like, feel like, sound like and act like. Does that sound as inhibiting to you as it does to me?

What if we changed all that? What if we demanded of ourselves TODAY, that we choose something different, so that we honestly, deeply, wholeheartedly accepted the beauty that we truly are and be. The kind of beauty that radiates from within, because from the hundreds of women that I’ve had conversations with about beauty, the one common factor that we all seem to share in regards to ‘when we feel most beautiful’ is that it’s when we feel happy and confident; and we see the beauty in others when they are radiating happiness and confidence.
