October Ritual: 30 Days of Movement

beachrun

No matter where I am in the world, September / October is my favourite time of year. It is simply beautiful no matter where we are. The sun shining. The skies blue. A breeze in the air. Not too hot. Not too chilly. So, as you can imagine, the Be genki ritual for October is all about getting outdoors to move your body and be with the beautiful surrounds of nature.  Continue reading

Question Everything

“Everybody realises the issues. Nobody actually acts. There is no time to be silent. There is no time to excuse. The time is now. Let’s start. The future is in our hands. And to make it better we must first change ourselves. Shed all the hatred, all the envy, all of the sadness. Be kind. Smile. and forgive. Continue reading

As we approach our 8th birthday, I am literally bursting out of my skin at the excitement of the relaunch of Be genki this coming June 2014. It’s been 2+ years in the making, with countless hours contemplating colour schemes, sourcing premium organic ingredients and improving what has become one of Australia’s much-loved natural self-care ranges.

Integrate Something New in to Your Daily Life to Help Bring About a More Naturally Beautiful You

benaturallyou2 Whether you’re
new to receiving
Be Genki rituals, or have been reading and following them for years I’d love to express my deepest gratitude for your support and for simply taking a moment in time to stop whatever it is that you’re doing to read the latest post.

After a lovely holiday over the Christmas break, I’ve decided to hang up my Be Genki blog boots for 12 months to focus on Be Naturallyou – my latest project and that which is particularly close to my heart. Terribly sorry if you’ve grown to love the Be Genki blog but there’s only so much a girl can do / fit in to one day; and I am sure that you will love Be Naturallyou. Continue reading

December Ritual: Create a Space of Relaxation, Serenity and Love this December, by Making it a Priority to be Kind and Thoughtful to Your Self

womanbeachWhilst the holiday season is something that most of us look forward to, jumping with joy, it can also become a little stressful, frustrating and exhausting.

With the risk of sounding a little like the Scroodge, please be sensible. It’s not called the silly season for no reason. Partying, drinking, indulging, overeating and running around like a headless chicken from event-to-event and shop-to-shop, trying to please everyone but yourself, it’s no wonder many of us feel tired, rundown, overweight and stressed as the new year rolls around.

Make the Commitment to Exercise, to Help Reduce Stress and Improve the Healthy Glow of your Complexion

I don’t know about you, but I really start to feel it if I don’t exercise for a few weeks: I become more lazy and sleep in that little bit longer, I become brilliant at conjuring up reasons why I deserve my sleep ins, my mood drops, I lack inspiration and no longer have that spring in my step or vibrant energy that I love so much. It scares the pants off me!

So as not to fall in to that trap again I have made a commitment of 5 times a week to just do it. Whether it’s a yoga class, yoga in my lounge room or hotel room, workout at the gym, walk in the countryside or dance session, it’s got to be something active. Continue reading

Inspired by Flowers

Have you ever stopped for a moment to get completely swept away by the beauty and vibrance of colour that flowers gift to the world? Quite something really!

It’s a little thing that I’ve been particularly captivated by lately, to just stop, pause and gaze for a few moments. Perhaps it’s because I just happen to be in the oh so lovely English countryside at present, with all the flowers blooming, or maybe it’s the little family of bees that greet me each morning and afternoon when I get home as they buzz around the flower bed at the front door, or perhaps it’s just nature’s way of gifting something truly beautiful to the day, or maybe it’s my deep dive in to Aura-Soma which has helped to open my eyes to the world of colour? All of the above I’d say, and more. Continue reading

The Importance of Balance

Sometimes when we get dis-ease in the body, it has nothing to do with “catching a virus” or “catching a bug” or pulling a muscle, but more so to do with some other underlying emotional issue or unresolved issue from the past; and sometimes we create the dis-ease, pain or discomfort ourselves on the subconscious level, and other times something different altogether, beyond our rational thinking mind. Continue reading

Be Genki Loves Treehenge

One of the initiatives that I love to do with Be Genki is to support environmental sustainability campaigns that work towards a better, brighter and cleaner future for the world we live in. So, we make a promise to donate 5% of profits each year to ensure that every Be Genki purchase also gives back to the planet.

Recently I came across a FABULOUS initiative that caught my attention and that we will be donating to from 2012 onwards, called … [ drum roll ] … Treehenge.
