I love living each day with mindful awareness, having fun with my friends, laughing, dancing, eating organic food, walking on the beach and swimming in the bay all year long. I also love practicing reiki and yoga.
What is the lesson you live by?
If you can dream it you can achieve it. I also always ask myself these 3 questions before I speak; is it true? Is it kind? Is it necessary?

I meditate every day, I say no and have healthy boundaries, I have a facial or massage.
Why do you think self care is important?
I believe when we look after our own needs on a mind, body and soul level we have more energy to give to others.
How do you ensure you prioritise the time to focus on your wellness journey?
I believe a daily routine and positive habits is the key to achieving my wellness journey. I put myself in my diary, a rest day, time to see friends, schedule time to write, and to just be.
