  1. Help a Frontline Fighter Today
    Help a Frontline Fighter Today

    One of our top priorities at Wellness Warehouse is to do our part in uplifting our community so that we can all live #WELLTogether. As we have struggled through the COVID-19 pandemic and the nationwide lockdown, there has been a beautiful outpouring of support, love and appreciation for our healthcare workers, who are selflessly and courageously putting their lives on the line to protect the weak and vulnerable. But there is another class of hero that is not celebrated nearly enough – the frontline fighters in all other industries.

    Store cashiers, cleaners, pharmacists, security guards, civil servants, and a host of other essential workers have continued to perform their duties in this time of crisis so that we may get the goods and services that we need. Along with their own personal, familial and financial responsibilities, these exceptional individuals carry the responsibility of ensuring that society continues to function during and after the coronavirus crisis. In addition, these workers face an increased risk of infection and illness as they continue to battle the outside world while the majority of us stay safe and healthy inside our homes.

    Something has to be done, and we are the ones to do it.

    Although lockdown may keep us apart, we are all in this together. We are being called to support and protect the bravest and most vulnerable among us so that we may rise from this with strength and unity and live #WELLTogether.

    And so, as part of our continued efforts to support our unsung heroes, we are running a donation drive to supply frontline workers with face masks and hand sanitiser. All you have to do is purchase a protective face mask from us at cost (either online or in store), and we will add hand sanitiser and donate these items to a frontline fighter on your behalf.

    BE PART OF THE SOLUTION TODAY!

  2. Effective Altruism
    Effective Altruism

  3. The most good you can do
    The most good you can do

    According to moral philosopher and utilitarian Peter Singer, we should be donating every spare cent we have to charity. As you can imagine, this hard-line moral obligation argument has not enamoured Singer to all. The guilt-inducing example for which he is most (in)famous is that of a child drowning in a shallow pond. If you walked past said pond, would you jump in and save the child’s life, or would you not want to run the risk of ruining your expensive clothes? If you saved the child, congratulations - you have proven yourself to be a moral human being.

  4. Wired for Relationship
    Wired for Relationship

    A desire for connection and understanding is deeply wired into the human psyche. From the moment of birth, we are neurologically primed to seek out close attachment bonds with others, as human babies cannot survive without someone to take care of their basic needs.

  5. BUILDING EMOTIONAL RESILIENCE IN CHILDREN

    Challenges in life are inevitable, but they don’t always have to yield negative emotional consequences. Instead, theycan be reframed as positive experiences - especially for children. Resilience is the ability to bounce back from stress, adversity, failure, challenges and even trauma.

  10. Exploring Tantric Tradition by Skye Forrester
    Exploring Tantric Tradition by Skye Forrester

    Before we delve into the exquisitely brain-bending world of Tantra, let's address its most pressing myth: Tantra isn't all about sex; except when it is. The idea that this ancient spiritual practice is drenched in obscenities, not fit for mixed company, or designed to make you a master of the boudoir is a fairly recent, 20th century idea born, ironically, in the conservative West. The more accurate view of Tantra is that it's an ancient Eastern spiritual tradition of principles, rituals and techniques for cultivating a full and conscious life. 

    We speak to Tantric teachers, Akira Devi and Sy Tzu, about sex, ego, energy and the incredible power of Tantra.

  14. Once Upon a Time by Skye Forrester
    Once Upon a Time by Skye Forrester
    An ancient tale Storytelling predates the written word. Every society and culture from the beginning of time has a tradition of storytelling. Ancient storytellers were very important people ' they were the custodians of culture, legend and history.

Many myths have been created in this way, using the art of storytelling to impart lessons and share concepts.
  15. 3 Steps to Affirmative Thinking
    3 Steps to Affirmative Thinking
    We are what we think. This simple but powerful dictum summarizes the importance of affirmations. Affirmations are fundamental to the work we do at Earthchild Project teaching vulnerable children in under-resourced communities. Childhood can be a stressful and frightening experience in any household, and many of the children we work with face additional challenges including violence, substance abuse and poverty. The absence of a nurturing environment can impact on a child's self-confidence, as well as their ability to learn and grow.
