    Let’s all try a little kindness this summer

    I am going to get very real with my female readers for my article this week.

    Heal the body from the inside

    Being in Bermuda in April and May often gives the joy of experiencing all the seasons within a week.

    During January, we reflect on the past year and set goals for the upcoming 12 months.

    Healthy perspective vital for fitness goals

    As a woman who works in the fitness industry, I am constantly struggling with a love-hate relationship with my body.

    It’s time to live in the moment

    I love a fresh start in January. During the first few days, I brew a strong cup of coffee and reflect on the past year: what lessons I learnt, what lessons I may need to learn again.
