I am extremely passionate about living as holistically and organically as possible so it was only a matter of time beore I added a lifestyle element to the blog.
Each month, I will approach experts in various fields (or highlight their work) for insights on how best to achieve total wellbeing - inside and out.
This month's Inside|Out is a collection of tips for slow and wholesome living gleaned from a column in one of my favourite Sunday newspaper supplements, Stella. Each month The Complete Woman features women from various spheres of life sharing the things that make them feel like - and function as - the best versions of themselves.
I certainly find it inspiring and I hope my selected excerpts will be just as helpful to you.

"Keeping one's brain active and learning new skills is a good way to stay sharp - knowledge is cool. I surround myself with kind people, too, as the communities that we build around ourselves are crucial to our wellbeing."
Nahid de Belgeonne, founder of Good Vibes yoga and fitness studios
"Meditation and prayer provide me with focus for the day, allow me time to reflect and visualise. I think it's important just to stop each day and offer gratitude for the life I have and the people in my life who continue to make it special."

"Spending quality time with my daughter is almost a spiritual practice; you can't help but be 'present' around children."
