The art of keeping well – self-care , taking care of yourself , the prime need for safety is an inherent need for all of mankind.
Having been through intensely challenging experiences , I have found that practising the principle of connectedness has been immensely valuable.
Connectedness is about staying close to oneself , immersing in new experiences and forming healthy connections.

Why Now ???
I am fortunate to do what I love and love what I do – day after day.
Having grown from my life and work experiences- I have always wanted to share my knowledge and make my contribution to community wellness and resilience in some small way.
So this year I made a plan to run a wellbeing workshop for women at the Nathan Homestead. Participation and entry to the workshop was free and numbers needed was 8. I made a very personal note to myself that the workshop will begin even if I had just one person attending the workshop.
This was a community event and this was to begin in Term 2.
However, the impact of COVID-19 pandemic resulted in the wellbeing workshop being postponed indefinitely.
There has been so many disruptions to people`s lives –and so many of us have had to face the impact of the pandemic –ranging from job loss to not being able to say good-bye to loved ones.
Instead of waiting indefinitely to run my wellbeing workshop, I made a decision that now is the time to share my knowledge on wellness and resilience through this blogpost.
The intention is to cue you my readers in making constructive creative choices in your wellness journey. I am mindful that my writing style,perhaps my cultural nuances and experiences might not always resonate with all of your views – however even if the ideas shared here adds value to one person`s wellness, I would take that as my personal milestone- with utmost humility and gratitude.
