    Supporting a Loved One Through Mental Illness

    When a loved one is dealing with a mental illness, you may be at a loss for what to say. We want to offer comfort and support, but often don’t know what that looks like.

    How I Took Back My Power

    I was 31 when I had my first breakdown. It was the middle of the year when I started feeling a soul-deep exhaustion. I couldn’t focus, and my energy was depleted.

I was overcome by foreboding and a deep feeling of inadequacy – professionally, academically, and personally.

    Healing Hands for the Heart

    Churning deep within our hearts is the tension between who we were born to be and what our various decisions and experiences have turned us into.

Financial representative Thobelani Thwala puts his money where his mouth is to inspire us with his personal journey from bottom dollar to financial freedom.

  35. My Journey to wellness
    My Journey to wellness

    My journey began when I started my first business. I was part owner and operating partner of YARD in Cape Town (home of The Dog’s Bollocks and Pizza Warehouse). But in 2012, shortly after I began this entrepreneurial endeavour, I was diagnosed with herpes. At the time, I took the convenient route and went onto antiviral meds, as the doctor ordered. But, every time I finished a prescription, I would immediately get hit with another outbreak. I quickly realised I needed to step up, take responsibility for my health and wellbeing, and make some serious lifestyle changes.

  36. Weight Loss Isn’t a Number – It’s a Feeling
    Weight Loss Isn’t a Number – It’s a Feeling

    The starting point to weight loss isn’t a workout or an eating plan – it’s kindness. For a long time at the start of our business, I did the introductory calls with potential clients. The idea behind the call was to help people understand their true motivation for wanting to lose weight whilst ensuring they did so within an honest and realistic framework. 

  37. Lessons in Leadership
    Lessons in Leadership

    There is a popular, often heatedly debated question on the topic of leadership: Are leaders made or are they born? I believe that everyone is born a leader, but whether people choose to be one is complex. Most people’s natural leadership qualities and abilities remain dormant, sometimes forever, because they aren’t challenged – by a situation or their environment – and haven’t found a cause that ignites the desire and activates their call to leadership.

  43. The Six Pillars of a Successful Health & Fitness Journey
    The Six Pillars of a Successful Health & Fitness Journey

    If you’re anything like me, you’ve had a complicated relationship with fitness. You’ve changed your cellphone wallpaper to a motivational fitness quote (probably something along the lines of “Success is what comes after you stop making excuses”); you wander around the gym confused and staring at the equipment without doing much; and you’ve tried to convince yourself that you don’t sweat; you sparkle. But when you look at some of the gym bunnies around you who really are sparkling, the truth couldn’t be more obvious… You need a little bit of help! It’s okay, you can say it: you need a team cheering you on and giving you guidance. Enter team JEFF.

    Grief is something we all know we'll experience some time in our lives. However, it is unlike anything we could ever imagine when it happens to ourselves or our partners. Grief is all-encompassing. It wraps itself around our psyches like a fine mist, and our lives are changed forever.

    Stock Your Healthy Pantry

    Dishing up healthy meals at home can be an incredibly daunting and challenging domestic task. From shopping a long list of new ingredients to facing down a goliath recipe, cooking can quickly become a frantic frenzy of figuring out how to assemble a food jigsaw puzzle from scratch. So it's no wonder we're left racking up an exorbitant grocery bill that leaves us exhausted and wondering if we wouldn't have been better off dining and wining at a fancy restaurant instead.
