I tried Tim Ferriss' NIGHTTIME ROUTINE for Optimal Relaxation and Sleep

I tried Tim Ferriss' NIGHTTIME ROUTINE for Optimal Relaxation and Sleep

Let's talk about routines.

Specifically we're talking about the nighttime routine of Tim Ferris. I decided to challenge myself to take on this routine over the last 7 days, and found some fascinating results!

Here’s a really quick back story, because a lot of people often ask me what is the point of having a routine. At the beginning of the year I had the zero routine. I travel full time and I'm a Digital Nomad, which means that I was really scattered, with no concrete routine at all.

With this lack of structure, I noticed that my productivity and creativity was really suffering. Basically I was just flailing through life and I really didn't like it.

Introduction to PLASTIC FREE LIVING: How To Cut Out 80% of Your Plastic Use in a Few Easy Steps

Today we're talking about a topic that I'm super passionate about - you may remember I made a video 6 months ago saying that I was going to trial the plastic free lifestyle for 30 days.

I got hooked! I completely fell in love with that way of life. It's fun, it's responsible and it's an awesome way to give back.

You may feel like 1 person can't really make a difference, well take a listen to my sisters story:

“I actually convinced a restaurant owner to go plastic free after I had a conversation with him about plastic straws and the damage that they're doing to the ocean and the plastic straws that are ending up in Turtles noses.”

This video I posted was received with a very wide range of opinions. Some loved it, some hated it, some didn’t understand. The last two days on my social media it’s been a whirlwind. I’ve been sitting back and observing everything as it’s unfolding and learning about us as humans, women, communities and individuals.

I’m creating this post to clarify a few points that have been brought up. Firstly, I’ll acknowledge that this video wasn’t created to the best of it’s abilities…

7 Digital Detox Tips to Ditch Social Media & Your Phone

7 Digital Detox Tips to Ditch Social Media & Your Phone

I’ve been going through an addiction that most people don’t take very seriously. It’s called a mobile phone addiction.

I wanted to highlight just how serious this really is and to show you the steps I am personally taking right now, to cut down on the use of my mobile phone, so that I can focus on having amazing moments instead.

The main reason why I decided to take a digital detox from my phone addiction is because I felt myself getting dumber. I wasn’t having opinions, I wasn’t having great conversations with people, and instead of learning new skills, I spent my time scrolling! I felt my brain deteriorating and I wasn’t ok with that.

My boyfriend worked out just how much time I spend on the phone and I think this is going to shock you too.

He told me if I live to 100, I will be spending 20 years non stop, starring at the screen. If that’s not

Some of you it might feel like it’s almost impossible to get paid as a small creator at first, but that's why I'm bringing in a very special guest today, who is gonna share ways of making money as a small creator and reasons why you deserve to get paid as a small creator.

The information shared here is about YouTube, however this applies to all creators so keep that in mind.

Living On The Road Full Time: How I Became A Digital Nomad and Is It Right For You?

Living On The Road Full Time: How I Became A Digital Nomad and Is It Right For You?

Many people constantly question what my life looks like when I live full time on the road.

How do I afford it?
Where do I live?
How do I stay healthy?
Is living out of a backpack tiring?

How do you stay connected with friends?
Do you miss having a stable home?
How do you not go crazy constantly moving around?
How do you choose where to live?

This is the way I do things. I know to some this is going to seem crazy, outrageous, rubbing it in peoples faces even, but that’s not the goal of this video.

Sometimes you think the reality you’re currently living is the only way to go until someone opens up the curtains and you can see a completely new way of living.

This is that video that may inspire some of you to choose a road less travelled in your life to provide you with freedom that you so desire…

Real Mind Control: Trying The 21 Day No Complaint Experiment Endorsed by Tim Ferriss

Real Mind Control: Trying The 21 Day No Complaint Experiment Endorsed by Tim Ferriss

I have wanted to do this challenge for the longest time but I’ve been putting it off for some unknown reason. I knew it would be hard, but there are zero negative side effects from doing this challenge, so I guess I just wanted to  protect my right to complain, hence why I was shying away from this challenge.

That’s not the best way to go.

I can at times slip into a very negative mindset and I don’t know how to snap out of it. I’m aware it’s happening, but I just seem to be stuck in a cycle.

And then I read this article by Dr Bradberry:

How to Hack Your Emotional State - Become a Queen (Or King)

Too often we wake up in a shitty mood and don't know how to get out of it.

The sun is shining, you can still breathe, you have food on the table, you have a roof over your head, but your mood is SOUR!

How on Earth to get out of this mood and into a more productive, fun and loving state. Go to sleep and hope it goes away? 

I guess that's one way. But there's another, much easier way...

Happy International Woman's Day!

I love watching women more and more come together to support each other and do incredible things in the world that have been previously thought not possible for us.

And to think not even that long ago we didn't have any rights and we were a possession. Wow. We have progressed!

The future is bright for all humanity and a part of that I do believe is having more strong, smart and kind women in power. I love you boys, but some female energy in power is necessary to balance the equation.

So! To spread the love of International Women's Day, here is the...

My Travel Photography Journey - Sh*t to Boss

I'm not one to usually toot my horn and say I'm amazing at any certain skill.
I'm not particularly great at anything. I'm pretty good at a lot of things, but not great.

Photography is a thing that has been in my life for years, but more because 3 of my boyfriends were interested in photography before it even crossed my mind to pick up a camera. I always wondered why on earth they would bother. I didn't really understand the point, but more so, I never really thought I could be good at it.

And even 3 years after I picked up a camera, I actually thought I was completely rubbish...until very, very recently. I caught myself looking at my portfolio in admiration. Beautiful images sharing a story, curated beautifully and images complimenting each other.

And it feels weird to say at this point in time I actually really love my photos. But...
