  • Woman in nature

    By Di Westaway | CEO Wild Women On Top

    By Sammy Page

    We all have dreams. Some big, some small. Perhaps yours is to climb Kilimanjaro or maybe you’re enticed by the cultural peaks of Bhutan.

    I took on my first 100km trek in a day, as a newbie to the ultra-endurance scene about 8 years ago. I had never even run a marathon, so this was a huge goal for me to take on with a team of women who had considerably more experience than I did.

  • If I were to describe a medication that was free, enjoyable with side effects only of fitness, freedom and liberation… would you believe me? Six months ago I made a discovery… a simple yet invaluable discovery that has replenished my glow and reignited my flickering spark.

  • In 2004, longevity expert, Dan Buettner, teamed up with National Geographic and a team of researchers, to identify pockets around the world where people live measurably longer better. In these “Blue Zones” they found that people reach age 100 at rates 10 times greater than in the US. They found that the lifestyles of all people living in these Blue Zones shared ten specific characteristics.

    Why do I take women wilderness trekking? Of course it is the physical challenge, the time connecting with nature, the fun and laughs of spending time as a community of women. But that's not all of it.

    With boys it’s a grunt. With girls it can be hysteria or brooding silence.

    Teens can be challenging at the best of times, and downright torture at the worst. They can tear at your heart strings and tie your stomach in knots.

    Eight years ago, I discovered a secret.

    It’s become more than a daily battle. During the week, round one starts the minute he walks in the door from after-school tennis. On the weekends its even more intense.

  • Menopausal symptoms vary widely between women and across cultures. Some women sail through it, whilst others have severe and debilitating experiences. Here's how I managed mine.

  • Di Yoga

    I’m from the generation that climbed trees, did cartwheels on the nature strip for hours and rode bikes till dark.

    But now, for the first time in my life, I’m stuck, actually stuck, at a desk for 8 hours a day.
