The end of the year is typically one of the busiest times but also a time to reflect and set yourself up for the next year.

In this episode I’ve taken the episodes you have voted for – by amount of downloads and piecing together the top core takeaways you can bring into 2018 straight away.

But before we get to that, I really want to focus on you. What have you been up to in 2017? What are your dreams and goals for 2018? It’s a broad question I know and can be hard to break down espeically when we can have so many dreams.

I’m going to share a few of my reflections and projects with you to show you how I apply the same principles to my own life directly. Then we countdown the top 5 most popular episodes.

I remember meeting Vladia a few months ago at a book launch event, and we bonded instantly about food and healthy ways of living. She really broke down for us what healthy food really means and why it doesn’t have to be so expensive.

I had never really understood what ‘Ayurvedic’ meant in its detail before I spoke with Farida, what an amazing teacher she is. She really highglihted that medicine in general, is about treating the whole person as a human and not just one particular ‘part’ or ‘thing’.

She specifically spoke about oils and how it’s the concoctions of oils that can help make a difference.

Bryce has an amazing practice – seriously it looks like a startutp hub rather than a typical practitioner’s office in North Sydney. As author of 4 weeks to wellness he walked us through the paleo way and how nutrition and exercise transformed his life, motivating him to study chiropractic and help many others.

We absolutely love the big guy Dr Ben. Ben just recently completed several marathons with his son, winning several of them whilst he’s at it. What a champion!!

Dr Ben got really very personal with us, talking us through how we went from fully fledged medical student to thriving practitioner, to a state of depression. He walked us through how he catapulted out of this funk and plonked himself on the ladder of success once again.
