    Podcasts that make early mornings more fun

    For the last several months, I’ve had this little secret morning routine. My alarm is set one hour before my kids and husband – so that I can slowly start the day listening to one (sometimes two) of my favorite podcasts.

  • Make a fresh start this Autumn

    Make a fresh start this Autumn

    Long time readers of Little Green Dot will know that I’m all about routines. My daily routine used to consist of a bike ride at dawn, while listening to podcasts and audiobooks. And I loved it. It kept me fit, I spent time out of doors and I learned new ideas at the same time – it was perfect for me. But then we […]

    How to Keep your Cool with Ayurveda

    The other day we were at lunch, in this beautiful outdoor Italian restaurant right next to a rice paddy field. And it was sweltering hot. I’m basically sticking to my chair, so I get up to go to the restroom and the second I open the door – I’m hit with this blast of air con – and I […]

    The first step to waking up with more energy

    Without a doubt, I’ve noticed that my kid is a much happier human-being – when she follows a certain night-time routine. No screens, one hour before bed A warm shower or bath Lights out, Kindle in bed It’s a simple routine that makes her feel demonstrably better the next day – yet when night-time rolls around, she’ll fight it if she can.

  • Feed Your Gut Beautiful

    Feed Your Gut Beautiful

    When I was first introduced to Pooja at The Nutrition Clinic, my gut had become compromised. I felt it because even though I was eating a healthy diet, I wasn’t feeling my best. There was a lot of grumbling after eating, I felt tired and my skin looked stressed.  When your digestion is not optimal, you’re not […]

  • When I saw the price tag I did a double take

    I’m in a trendy area in Singapore, window shopping, when I see this beautiful body scrub. My first instinct is to read the ingredients – it’s all natural, made with coffee and sea salt, coconut oil… mmmmm! And then I see the price. It costs $60… ouch! When I think back to what got me started into this […]
