Well, Well, Well // Juno Mojo

Many of us take breathing for granted, but if you stop for a moment (take a breath, if you will) and think about how much we breathe, the statistics are astounding – the average adult will take 8,400,000 breaths per year! Did you also know that the mind, body and breath are intimately connected and can influence each other? Breathing impacts our sleep, mood, digestion, heart, nervous system, muscles, brain ...

Dr Tim O’Dowd // Changing Nutrition Advice

In 1977 – the year Elvis died – the best-selling songs were Queen’s “We are the champions” and “Don’t cry for me Argentina” by Madonna. In the UK, it was the Queen’s Silver Jubilee, marking 25 years of her reign. I’m sure there were many other notable events, but the one that stands out for me, above all the rest, was extraordinary. The US Government decided to take over from grannies and mothers everywhere ...

Being at One With Gratitude

One of the most important words in any language, yet difficult to apply, is ‘gratitude’.   Sometimes we pray, say thanks when conditions are good or even automatically (therefore without real meaning) and then when things go wrong, we tend to totally forget about the power of gratitude. We can find ourselves going through difficult situations and tough times where everything seems to be against us and ...

I’ve never done a juice cleanse before. The idea of cutting out solid foods for a few days and supplying your body with a concoction of nutrients sounds great but to be honest I don't think I've got the mental fortitude for it! You see, I enjoy food I just don't like having to think about it all the time. So when cold pressed organic juice cleanse company, Sol Cleanse launched their whole food cleanse menu, ...

You Are What You Eat!

I’m a firm believer that a healthy outside starts with a healthy inside. You can lift weights, run for miles, bend yourself into yoga poses but if you’re feeding your body junk you’ll never achieve true health. It’s true for adults, and even more so for our kids. Imagine the demands life places on growing bodies – disrupted sleep for newborns, non-stop running for our toddlers, learning self-control and to ...

Dad’s day, Everyday

I am sitting at the dining room table as I type this. The younger children are watching Bondi Vet while my husband and our eldest are huddled over a computer on the loungeroom floor, discussing her biology assignment. Our eldest recently celebrated her 17th birthday and that means my husband has been a father for the same time. With Father’s Day recently done and dusted for another year, I was curious to as ...

New plans can be made anytime of the year, but what better time than now? Spring is a time of renewal and regeneration, so why not make a resolution to optimise your health through lifestyle and nutrition adjustments? Every second adult has a chronic disease like high blood pressure or diabetes, and one-in-four have at least two. Developing a chronic disease means lifelong and persisting effects, and a need ...

We sometimes use iPad time as an incentive for good behaviour. What are your recommendations on how much time I should allow my child to play these types of games every day?
