How I cured my psoriasis

If you've been lucky to never experience psoriasis then just know, it's a frustrating dry skin condition. For so many people it's something we live with all our lives.Many years ago this was the back of my neck. I lost all my hair on the base line and the the psoriasis started to creep up [...]

Portion control 

For nearly 15 years I wasn't allowed to leave the table until my plate was cleared. Sometimes it's good to look back so we can understand where food issues come from. Everyone has their own way of parenting and it's up to the individual how this goes. But in recognising our history we remake the [...]

“I food cheat too!”

Get out of your own way..

Something came up recently where a project didn't turn out as planned. I was thinking what I could have done different and what were the lessons to learn. After a couple of days, I realised it had turned into rumination. Rumination is the death of progress. Around this time a wise young Fox reminded me, [...]
