Let´s explore giving our shoulders some space in safe and supportive ways. We´ll look at a method you can try to open and strengthen the lats - particularly useful if you feel they could use some attention. So this is a little “awareness exploration” with a little help from a prop!
You will need:
A yoga block or some substitute. I use a record cover, but you could use a light book, a cushion or anything else (please share any creative ideas you come across below!)
Hope this little sequence helps you tune into your inner support!
Sprinkle into your day as a warm up or a little tune up in your week! Let me know how you go!
More Self Care >
We´re often encouraged to start from a centred and grounded place that feels supportive. Steady.
...But when is anything ever steady? Really?
I have a self care box at home containing the things that uplift me when i need to feel better. It includes my trusty eye pillow, some oils, words, art tools and so on. I find it useful to have these items always at the ready - a “ritual in a box” if you like, that really helps me practice self care on the regular.
Read on for my tips to create your own self care box!
Thank goodness for our wrists! They, along with our hands, support us in so many ways during the day, so let´s give them a little bit of love!
Do you feel me?
Those days where we think about doing something. Yet it doesn’t quite happen. On those days, i remind myself and others to tread gently.
Here´s a sequence i use when i want to slow things down and practice being a little more tender and gentle.

Scroll through pics, videos and sound bites from the year at Changing the Menu HQ, and join me for a recap of my fave art, music and inspiration from 2016.
It wasn´t until i was in my 30s that i became really comfortable with being alone. Like properly, not just “awkward-alone”, head down, wishing i was invisible, trying my best to disappear in public places, or digging my phone or book out just to feel i wasn´t by myself.
The time has come. I have to jump and, ahem, “just do it”.
