Rules to live by!

What a week this has been, with the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games, and G.B off to a fantastic start in many of its categories. The Tri-Dosha team was able to get into the spirit of the games as we lined the relay route and cheered the official torchbearer to our area, Laura Swarbrooke. One of Coca-Cola’s 1,300 Future Flames. She was chosen as an official London 2012 Olympic Torchbearer via Coca-Cola’s Future Flames campaign, which recognizes and rewards the positive contributions young people make every day in their local communities by giving them the once in a lifetime opportunity to carry the Olympic Flame. It’s not surprising she was honored with the chance - Laura achieved a silver medal at the 2010 Taekwondo World Championships. A keen volunteer, she works at various play groups and primary and secondary schools where she helps with arts and crafts activities as well as school trips. Laura is the medical care assistant to an insulin dependent child, AND she also teaches netball, running, swimming and P.E. 

Inspired by Laura’s story, my blog this week highlights three golden rules to live by… if Laura has a manual guiding her through her life, I have a feeling these will be in it:

a. Treasure your body for it is the vessel that guides you through your life.
You may think that money or success is important, but nothing is as important as your own body. Without it you can’t live. Make it a habit to eat a healthy and natural diet, be sure to exercise regularly and above all get plenty of sleep. Also try to keep your life as stress-free as possible, stress makes you age faster and make you old before your time.

b. Success requires hard work, persistence and a little creativity.
The best advice I can give you if you want to be successful is to not hope for a quick fix but to be prepared for the long haul. Real success with anything usually takes months and even years to achieve. Believe in yourself and believe in your dreams, keep learning and never give up. Try to find yourself a mentor to speed the learning process up. Sooner or later you’ll achieve your goals.

c. Make a difference to a least one other person’s life.
I believe that we’re all on this planet together. Life isn’t meant to be completely selfish, we’re here to give to and help each other. Right now there are countless people who could use a helping hand so why not give back a little? You don’t necessarily have to give money. You can give some of your time or experience to help someone else with something you’ve already overcome. Helping someone else is one of the most rewarding things you can do.

Follow ‘the rules to live by’ and you will find yourself succeeding to live the best life!

In the spirit of sharing...

In the spirit of sharing…

One of the best things about the web and social media is how much great information is written and produced every single day. If you’re a regular reader of blogs, you probably come across great articles and websites that you just want everyone to know about. Every week I get excited to tell the world about my amazing finds, and this week I have three favorite recommendations of ways to share amazing health and wellness:

For you London-based yoga buff’s, we enjoyed a great session at the Light Yoga Space in Dalston, East London, this week. For their early morning sessions, accompanied by home baked yogi morning cookies and muffins, please see:

I couldn’t wait to blog about the next one - for a weekend of free music from around the world on stages along the River Thames, check out: It’s going to be a summer in London like no other as the capital gets set to celebrate the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. All the events are free and there's something for everyone. Tri-Dosha made it to the Africa Stage at London Pleasure Gardens yesterday! Super impressive!

And finally, our good friend and gifted Naturopath, Max Tomlinson, is our recommended 5-star health and fitness week. His holidays come with a seriously healthy attitude. you can join him on one of his new health and fitness program's hosted at the beautiful 5-star Rosa Alpina hotel in the Italian Dolomites and at the multi-award winning Forte Village Resort in Sardinia. The focus is on outdoor exercise in the mountains and on the beach, gourmet healthy cuisine, outdoor spa and hydrotherapy sessions and restoration of physical and mental wellbeing. He is also a  fan of Tri-Dosha! For further info and bookings, please visit: 

In celebration of amazing health and wellness!

Behind the scenes

This year is flying by too quickly, but it’s been an exciting mid-year for to 2012. I’ve recently returned from a fantastic trip to Dorset, where, among many other things, I was looking for quirky venues to run our therapist retreat programmes from. There was one thing that really stood out as being at the top of the venue proprietors list for discussion – recycling, rubbish and waste. In the city, we are provided with a wide range of services to recycle household waste, but beyond that, the message gets diluted. I was really amazed at the initiatives in the country, with an aim to divert as much as possible away from landfill and recycling it into reusable materials or carbon efficient energy. Materials collected and recycled locally include bulky waste; cardboard recycling; carpet recycling; food waste, green waste and plasterboard recycling.

Conversations took place at tree houses, cabins, yurts and more. We particularly liked the Mongolian yurt, which can be booked through Go Glamping: I also got a fantastic view of Dorset from Corton Denham Beacon, and would have loved to have pitched a tent up on the hill (in style of course!).

On the subject of behind the scenes activity, immediately on my return, I looked at the breathtaking pictures of Dorset, and it reminded me of a motto I came across many a time in my previous career as a journalist ‘A picture is worth a thousand words…’ This took me back to the striking work of our photographer in capturing the essence of Tri-Dosha, and which now make our website a fantastic platform for promoting our range of products and treatments. Not only are the images well captured, they are well designed as well, allowing each page to tell our story. For more on this wonderful lady, please see:

Overwhelmed by beauty this week, it reminds me that our planet is a very special place indeed.

Real life super heroes...

I am in London this week preparing for my Summer meditation group. Taking six lovely souls through some blissful sessions!

Earlier this week I had a barbecue in my urban garden, gazebo and all... you can imagine! We got lucky! No puddles! And some colourful outifts! A long over due catch up with my lovely friends and family.

Monday evening, I was very privileged to have met Romy Fraser who presented at an event I came to. Those of you in the natural skincare-know will remember Romy as the founder of Neals Yard - natural skincare brand, and a star in her own right. Her new adventure - establishing an organic and educational centre in Devon called Trill Farm. Check it out at:

People never cease to amaze me!
