When the doors to my gym closed in late March due to COVID-19, I felt like the rug had been pulled out from under me.
In the first few weeks of lockdown, I’ll be honest, I was in a pretty dark place. I felt joyless, flat, uninspired, confused, scared and isolated. I got teary and emotional over insignificant things. They’re feelings I know many of us went through, at various times, at various intensities.
But lockdown also taught me a valuable lesson about exercise…
We all need to do something thrilling and daring every now and again. Not just because it unleashes our inner child and fills us with a lust for life, but because awe and exhilaration is actually good for our health!
On the eve of World Nude Hiking Day, we thought we'd share some wild and wonderful ways you can experience natural exhilaration and get your vitality back.
At Wild Women On Top, we're all about delicious, nutritious gourmet food. Even on overnight hikes, we go the extra mile for our tastebuds.
You don't need to resort to commercial, dehydrated meal packets. From curries to pasta dishes, you can cook fresh, gourmet meals on the trail.
The recipes in this blog have been fine-tuned over several years of overnight hiking and involve a little preparation at home. They're tried and tested, and they're super secret (so don't go sharing them around!)
There’s nothing better than a spontaneous decision to get outdoors, fill your lungs with fresh air, stare at the stars, plunge into the icy waters of a mountain stream, chew the fat with friends by a camp fire, and recharge your soul.
Here is the wild women recipe for putting together the perfect long weekend adventure at the last minute.
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!
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.
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 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.
