Several weekends ago, Mr. W and I headed to the hills for a day so he could carry out conservation work on a property he works on. I don't usually go but this weekend I decided to leave the housework, the jobs, the washing - all those "other things" that we can allow to consume our weekend. No power, no phone coverage, no WIFI - totally unplugged and off the grid! As we headed north, coverage disappeared mid text conversation with a friend - what did we do "back in the day" before mobile phones? Have real conversations with those we are with?!
Rest and Self-care are so important but they're frequently the first thing to go in our daily routine. There's many reasons why taking time for ourselves takes the backseat; time, money, competing priorities, other family member’s needs or our beliefs can all result in putting ourself lower down the priority list.
But how can we help others if we’re running on empty?
I recently heard a generalised comment "Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Flavour Free!!" Not in my world! I may be biased but the raspberry tanginess in these balls is yummy, with no added sugar, the antioxidant goodness of blueberries, protein and calcium from the tahini and almonds they've got to be good.
I'm often asked "how can I get calcium if I'm not having dairy? There's many ways, enjoying things like these balls is just one way.
I'd like to be your personal advocate for living an energised and passionate life. Enjoy these articles and get in contact if I can help.
