This could be the universe telling me to slow down. Random pothole next to my car tonight in George Street tonight. Badly sprained ankle. RICE (with frozen raspberries of course!) Whenever I’m really busy, I seem to injure myself. I think partly because when I’m busy I’m so in my head I don’t notice things, but also probably this is the only way of making me actually stop!

Most of you who have me on Facebook will already know back in February I passed my massage therapy course, this has not yet been placed on my price list as I am still to get the massage table and equipment ect sorted! But this will be FREE to the first 10 people to come to me when my items arrive as I will need a lot of practice before I charge if this does interest you please DM my page. Thank you. #massagetherapy #massage #relax #chill #timeout #certification #taliyahbrooke #swansea
Thinking back to this day a couple of weekends ago still brings a smile to my face 😁
There was SO much I needed to get done that day. When we got the invite to go hang out in Pukehina I almost said no, I was too busy. There was house stuff and work stuff and tax stuff and shopping and.....the list just went on. .
But I am so glad we just pushed that list to the side for the day! Because the thing is the list will always go on.
Spending time enjoying magic moments with beautiful people is one of the things that truly lights my soul up. And none of us know how long we’re going to be around for. We’ve got to grab those moments when we can, and come back to that endless list tomorrow ❤️
Adding a little veg to my breakfast, this feast will keep me satisfied til lunch time. I am a creative and I have been a chef aswell, so that is why food, flavours and textures will always be my medium and art! I love growing and cooking my food from scratch, investing in sustainable environmental practices and in the health of my body, mind and soul.
While away, I had the pleasure of an up-close encounter with this beautiful bird! I took a pic of her further away, turned around and she was right there next to me! 😳 💕 check out the stunning feathers and absolutely cheeky, Kea! @wellington.zoo
|| Hello again! 💫 I took an amazing break from social media and from training and just took time out for myself and it was amazing ! ☀️ I was constantly on social media comparing my life with everyone else’s, constantly upset that I didn’t look a certain way or how someone was further along in life than me and it was really breaking me apart. 😞
I knew for my mental health I needed a break which is why I let myself do and eat whatever I wanted. I also took time out from training partly because I wanted the break and partly because I wanted more time to love and pamper myself.
Now I’m back and I feel stronger than ever. I had an amazing leg workout today in the gym and I’ve made good decisions with my eating that I plan on continuing.
Like I’ve said before. This is my year. My mental health needed to come first for me to even contemplate getting my fitness and health to a standard that I am happy with but now I’m happy to give it my all.
Thanks for your patience! 💛 || #healthy #health #healthyliving #healthylifestyle #fitness #fitfam #fitnessmotivation #mentalhealth #fit #fitlife #healthandfitness #fitnessinspiration #timeout #selflove #pamper #loveyourself #weighttraining #weightlifting #gym #gymbunny #gymlife #gymrat #bikinicompetitor #break #bodybuilding
Energy output/exchange is something I have been carefully focusing on the past 2 months. Its so easy as a parent, a spouse, a teacher and a small business owner to give give give. And run out of time in a day to really stop and receive. On top of the daily hustle we have pretty much become accustomed to devices in our hands so often. Do we have enough impulse control to just 'check one thing real quick,' or does it inevitably lead to scrolling and posting, sharing, saving, chatting and scheming until too much time has been consumed. Sound familiar
How do you deal with your energetic output
How do you fill back up

The gift that is life. ✖️ Don't let it take a health crisis to wake you up to make changes to your lifestyle... especially if you know that what you are doing needs to be changed. Life is a gift. Your body is a gift. Symptoms and the things that upset you or frustrate you act as a voice, to let you know if it is happy or not. It is up to you to take the necessary action and act on them. The things you dislike the most, are simply indications to eat, drink, move, rest, believe, perceive and act in a new way. Live each day with intent and awareness to the fact that life is a gift and your body and the way it communicates with you will reveal what you need. When you treat it accordingly you live a life that not only looks good but feels good from within ..(symptom/dislike free!). Exercising, eating right and having the ability to take charge of our health is a gift we have been given and one that we should be thankful for everyday.
It is a gift that I have always treasured and will never take for granted. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
