Audacious Health Readings..
You don't have to meditate to get the benefits of mediation. Movement and mindful practices will similarly give you these benefits, ie activities / practices such as surfing, gardening, watching sunsets or knitting....
What is your thing? If it gives you a sense of calm and peace it is a meditative practice that is good for you and done regularly will contribute to good health and mental wellbeing.

We often hear of efforts to change that are unsuccessful. New Year's resolutions that don't make it past January etc. Here's a great way to make a change that will stick.
Five ways to make a change that sticks:
- Choose something that you can donow.
- Choose something that you can make the decision about alone - i.e.doesn't require permission/collaboration.
- Choose something you can dowhere you are.

Wouldn't you rather choose to be happy? A positive attitude not only improves your mood, can also lengthen your life, decreasing major health concerns. Harvard School of Public Health researchers have determined that optimistic individuals were approximately 50% less likely to experience an initial cardiovascular event compared to their pessimistic individuals.
We've listed below FIVE TIPS FOR RESETTING A POSITIVE FRAME.
At Audacious Health we frequently observe the relationship between one's feelings and levels of stress and its impact to health.
Sleep – are you setting yourself up for good night’s sleep?
I don’t know about everyone else, but I have had some difficulty with sleep in the last week. Sleep is a topic we’ve often mentioned – why – because it is so important. A lack of sleep negatively affects your wellbeing, and with a less than ideal mental and physical state, it starts to negatively impact other areas in our lives - like forgetting things, doing things slower than normal, etc.
So, during winter, we suggest that you maintain good digestive health, maintain exercise and keep up good sleep habits so that you wake well rested and energized for the day.
We all would like to have less stress in our lives. It is good to stop and reflect on how our lives would improve if we had less stress. Make a list of the reasons for wanting less stress. This list will be what motivates us to actually implement some changes and take action to reduce stress and to cope better with it.
For example, when I have less stress, I will have more energy. With more energy, I will:-
* spend more time playing with the kids
* improve efficiencies at work
What is Qi Gong and how can help with stress?
Often find ourselves overworked, stressed and fatigued. One of our favourite ways to help manage stress and improve our energy is to have a daily practice of Qi Gong.
Qi Gong is a ‘moving mediation’ practice that is over 5000+ years old. The movements (like Tai Chi) are soft yet powerful, working the breath and working the energy meridian channels. There is mindfulness in the movements whilst being in a state of relaxation.
TIME AND FIVE GREAT WAYS TO USE IT….
One of my favourite movies is the Justin
Timberlake movie “In Time” from 2012. If
you haven’t seen it, in brief, it is about a futuristic society in which people
are genetically modified to “expire” on their 25 birthday – unless
they are able to acquire more time credits from some means eg income or
obtained from someone else’s time, thus making time a very valuable commodity
indeed. No, I think you will have to
watch the movie to get what I am saying…
We’ve talked around this topic for quite some time but today
let’s get down to it. In Chinese
Medicine it was a truth that your body health is a reflection of your
