    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.

    When it comes to nutrition, there’s a whole lot of information out there about what we 'should' and 'shouldn’t' be eating. We asked nutrition expert Dr Joanna McMillian to simplify it for us. The good news? It’s way easier to eat healthy than you think!

    When the immediate emergency has passed and our beautiful homeland has stopped burning, we need to take some time to grieve, re-set ourselves and then begin to renew our goals, with a productive and positive mindset overlaid with the new filter of a climate changed world. 

    Here are some ways to turn your guilt and sadness into positive action.

    To help you avoid the boxed chocolate aisle on the way to your BBQ or picnic this long weekend, we’ve pulled together some great ideas for when you need a quick, fabulous and impressive share plate – without lots of effort.

    Celebrating when such a huge environmental crisis is unfolding in Australia just hasn’t felt right. The pain of knowing how many homes, animals and forests have been destroyed has been intense. Seeing so many people in our communities struggling with the force of these fires has been deeply stressful and exhausting.

    Now it's time for us to pause and recognise the grief and pain which has marked the beginning of 2020.

    Stretching and gentle movement is a great way to support a healthy, happy spine – even while you’re sitting – so we asked our in-house yoga teacher/marketing specialist Donna for her favourite desk stretches to relieve shoulder, neck and back stiffness.

    These classic Czech bickies, adapted by Di's mum Barbara, are a tradition in the Westaway family at Christmastime, and they are melt-in-your-mouth delicious. They're so good because the main ingredient is love. 

    We call them Vanilla Crescents.

    How do you feel about pooping into a zip-lock bag and carrying it in your backpack? What about digging a hole in the ground for your business?

    For many women, the thought of pooing anywhere other than a sparkling white porcelain bowl is enough to deter them from adventures. But don’t let this be you!
