    When we went into lockdown just a few months ago, we started dreaming about where we would hike again. These are the epic local trails that made the top of our list.

    We're back, baby! We're back in the wild - walking, talking, leaping, scrambling, and exploring - where we belong.

    As restrictions begin to ease around the country, we're seeking new, fun fitness challenges to keep us motivated, healthy and active through the chilly winter months.

    If you're seeking a new challenge, or you've set yourself a Big Hairy Audacious Goal, this is the secret to success.

    If you’re anything like me, the past two months has been a rollercoaster of emotions; uncertainty, fear, disbelief, astonishment, worry, disappointment, frustration, anger, acceptance, love, gratitude and, finally, a return of optimism. Through all this, it’s natural for motivation to fluctuate, and it’s definitely time to forgive yourself if your motivation to move and workout has all but evaporated.

    But now, with restrictions easing slowly, it’s time to re-build your routine and feel fabulous again!

    The only down side about this fabulously delicious dish is that if you turn your back, your kids will devour it. Enjoy!

    In these challenging times, mums (and dads) are being presented with unique challenges. Many mums are having to work from home, home-school their kids, manage the household, and care for their mental and physical wellbeing.

    This week, in honour of Mother’s Day, we’re asking the kick-ass mums in the Wild Women office how they’re managing to keep fit and well in isolation. You probably won’t be surprised that all of these incredible women are getting a good dose of nature – daily!

    One of the things I love most about daily Zoom meetings is the window into the home lives of my beautiful team. It's highlighted to me how differently we all live, especially at the moment.

    It's become clear to me, in the last couple of weeks, that time-poor mums have been massively impacted by this crisis. Many of them are completely run ragged trying to home-school, get a full-time job done in three days, stay on top of the washing, stay on top of the news, be nice to their partner, get enough veggies into everyone and do the f**king push-up challenge with kids crawling all over them.

    It is to these women I speak – because I was one of them.

    A delicious, fresh cocktail that's got a good dose of vitamin C? It sounds too good to be true. But these yummy and easy pink gimlets are exactly that. 

    They're fresh, fancy, fast, and they're a favourite in the Wild Women office. 

    Enjoy!

    Since COVID-19 (coronavirus) began to spread, many of us have been thinking about how we can best protect ourselves and our loved ones from getting sick. The internet is full of 'immune-boosting' recipes, supplements and superfoods... but do any of them actually work? 

    We've asked the experts and here are the answers.

    Due to the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus) and new social distancing rules, many of us are spending more time on screens than we’re used to. 

    Everything from work meetings to yoga classes to family dinners are now conducted via technology, and this can leave us feeling a bit 'bleh'. 

    This weekend, here are some things you can do that don’t involve screen time.

    Many of us are spending much more time inside than we used to. But these new social distancing laws have brought some silver linings - there's plenty of time to get baking!

    This weekend, give Gai's delicious gluten free raspberry friands a try.

    It’s been a huge few weeks here at Wild Women HQ.

    We’ve faced some of the biggest challenges we’ve ever faced as a business, and we know we aren’t alone. Fear and panic are everywhere.

    But we know that what you focus on grows. So we asked our team to tell us things they are grateful for, and together we’ve come up with a list that has helped us through some of the most challenging days.

    We hope it can help you, too.

    The COVID-19 pandemic has made it feel like the world has tilted on its axis. 

    Everything seems different now. In times of crisis, we usually come together with love. Now, we’re forced to stay apart for love. 

    Here's how I'm finding ways to cope.

    Although I have made – and continue to make - many mistakes as a parent, I have given my daughter the gift of education. She has learned how to think for herself, express herself and communicate her needs with love and respect. She has been given the tools she needs to choose her own future, which is a gift denied to so many girls around the world.

    This summer Mother Nature has shown us her best and worst. She’s unleashed fires upon our parched lands and hail upon our parliament. She’s watered our wilderness, filled dams and flooded rivers.

    She’s also forced us to contemplate what we can all do to live and tread more gently upon her fragile flora, to protect our threatened fauna and to support a healthy, flourishing natural environment.

    In a culture that worships youthful looks, many of us think that physical weakness and decline is a natural part of ageing. But research shows that most age-related wilting is a result of lifestyle, not the number of candles on your cake.
