When you’ve lost that loving feeling…

I’ve noticed something quite amazing about myself – see if you can relate…   Every time my life goes pear-shaped, gets challenging or when I am feeling out-of-sorts with the world, my self-love completely disappears.   WHICH MAKES NO SENSE WHATSOEVER.   I did an in-depth opinion poll (okay, I asked my fellow Boot Camp […]

It’s the 91st of January, I swear!

Is it me or does payday seem a million light years away? It feels like it’s the 91st of January and I have vague recollections of being on holiday sometime recently…   I always think that January is a strange time – it’s like 2019 has begun with all its routines and expectations and I […]

It’s beginning to look a lot like cocktails

Let’s face it – this time of year is CRAZY! We’re trying to get our kids through the last few days of school, get ourselves through the last few weeks of work, plan for the Holiday Season, navigate an insane amount of work and social functions – all while feeling pretty tired and ready for […]

Doing Diddly Squat?

If there’s one thing I have learnt in 2018, it’s this – the very best time to start something is … NOW! Not tomorrow. Not on Monday. And DEFINITELY NOT IN THE NEW YEAR! The reality is this – if we are feeling out-of-sorts with ANY area of our life, it means that we need […]

KEEP CALM – Just 57 days to Christmas!

Not that I am counting, but it is officially 57 days until Christmas and 62 days until the end of the year. And while it’s crazy to think that we are so close to bidding farewell to 2018 (and even more crazy to think about the kids’ exams, year-end functions, deadlines and other tasks we need to […]

Helping Others in our Communities

A few things I have never mentioned (although they are VERY close to my heart!) I’ve never been one to blow my own trumpet and would FAR rather talk about someone else’s amazing successes than my own – a habit that seems to spill over into my work life! I recently realised that I don’t often share […]

Here’s to Strong Women!

Do you ever look back at some of the spectacular women in South African history and wonder if you would have shown the same strength, courage and power if you had been in their shoes? I do. Take 9 August 1956 for example, when more than TWENTY THOUSAND South African women of all races marched to […]

This could be the most important choice you make in 2018…

Have you ever tried to come up with TEN things you totally love about yourself? Go ahead… give it a try. I’ll wait….. ….. ….. ….. Not so easy, right? This is something that one of our amazing campers, Lebogang Modisa, discovered first-hand when she joined Adventure Boot Camp. Not only did she learn how strong, […]

The only #LifeHack you’ll need this year!

I read something the other day that actually made me gasp out loud (and no, it wasn’t the number on the scale – rude!) It was this: “WE ARE AMAZING AT FOOLING OURSELVES INTO STAYING EXACTLY WHERE WE ARE!” Mel Robbins, the author, went on to say, “Stop saying you will do it tomorrow. If you […]

Hibernation mode – activated!

I have to admit that I am deeply conflicted. I have spent the weekend contemplating deep and meaningful things (like did you know that if Oprah Winfrey married Deepak Chopra, her married name would be Oprah Chopra? Mind-blowing!) But on a semi-serious note, I have been pondering about divorce rates and if they increase or decrease during winter. The […]
