I Am Woman

Women put so much pressure on themselves to be the best friend, best mum, best wife, best worker, the best at everything for other people, but where in all of that are you the best for YOU? It’s our natural instinct to be carers and givers which is perfectly fine but when was the last time you did something for you?

I truly believe as women we have a need within our core to connect with nature, our roots and the universe. When our bodies come in direct contact (walking, sitting, laying or climbing) with the earth’s surface, the earth’s electrons are conducted to your body. These electrons induce favourable physiological and electrophysiological changes that promote optimum health. Such a simple, easy and natural thing we all should be doing but who can truly raise their hands and say they have been in direct (no shoes, socks, clothing etc.) contact with the earth today or even in this last week? NoTime? Yet you had time to watch your favourite show and play your phone.

Make time for you. Tell yourself right now “I AM WOMEN”, now say it again and believe it. You are worth every moment you invest in yourself. How can you be the best version of yourself if you’re always focusing on other people and not within? Time for yourself will make you more at peace with life, you will radiate happiness.

This in return will allow you to be the best YOU for everyone who may need you. If like myself you find it hard to get a moment alone due to life’s circumstances, don’t announce defeat. Pack up the kids and take them with you. It’s amazing how much our children need the earth and they seem to know it as soon as they get the chance to be with it. You will find they will be more at peace and explore once they are out in their natural surroundings. Even this will give you time to clear your mind and reflect on YOU.

There are so many things out there you can do and they don’t have to cost a fortune. Go on a bush walk, have a picnic lunch, read a book in a park, meditate at a waterfall, book a climb, dive into the ocean, run on the sand, explore the rainforest, go for a bike ride in a national park, whatever it is you do get outdoors into the Wild. Our

Wilderness is a big and beautiful place waiting to be explored. If you’re stuck for ideas check out our workshops . You can meet so many inspiring women who have already made the agreement with themselves “I AM WOMEN”.

Now go take off your shoes, dig your feet into the grass, feel the sun on your face and let your journey to the BEST YOU begin.
