Covid-19 has forced people around the world to remain indoors for prolonged periods and this physical retreat inwards naturally leads into a mental/ emotional/ spiritual retreat inwards. While I have much to share in relation to the lessons I learned during my quarantined contemplations, I’ll save that for another article.
In this article, I’m highlighting how I pushed myself to get out of my mind and into tasks I’ve been postponing – such as updating my website. Before writing more, I’d like to emphasise how each of us are different so don’t feel bad for not doing what you’ve been postponing because you’re exactly where you’re supposed to be in your journey. Plus, with three retrogrades having just occurred in May, it’s definitely an energetically intense time which can often manifest as feelings of sluggishness or even confusion about the direction of your life. So, remember to take it one day at a time.
Having written freelance for more than two years now, while sifting through and compiling my contributed articles listed in Featured In, I fell into the arms of reminiscing. Skimming through various articles, I realised that some definitely deserve a mention in a post so here I am and here you are so let’s get to it:
The Positive Impact of Ethical Travel In Asia
Backpacking through Southeast Asia made me realise how far money can really go, especially when visiting under-developed areas.

The Surprising Benefits of Grounding Yourself—And How
If you know me personally, you know I go into nature barefoot – seriously, even when I was trekking for 2/3 days in Shan State, Myanmar. Instinctively, I knew it was good for me but really reading the science behind it made me feel less crazy. Yes, you read that right, there are actual health benefits. Read more at PurelyB here.
Why All Working Women Should Incorporate Meditation into Their Daily Routine
While many associate yoga with that hippie-dippie lifestyle, it’s relevant to literally any and every lifestyle – especially the corporate lifestyle. In order to remain stress-free, I cannot recommend meditation enough so being able to share information on it for a website focusing on working women was definitely a highlight.

What Is A Sound Bath & Why You Should Try It
So in November 2019, I became a certified sound healer. If you’ve never experienced sound healing before, trust me when I say that you need to at least once in your life. If possible, attend a sound healing session with a variety of instruments for maximum benefit(s) and maximum sound effects – so for example, a session with crystal singing bowls, Himalayan singing bowls, gongs, koshi chimes, chakra chimes, a hang drum etc; you’ll thank me later.

Three Crystals You Should Always Travel With
I love crystals so obviously I loved writing about crystals – and getting paid for it! Whoever said manifesting your dream job is impossible needs a reminder on patience cause I didn’t imagine crystals to be a topic I could write about for work until Zafigo graciously agreed to my pitch (thanks again). If you’re that person hoarding stones (I feel you) with a penchant for travelling then this article is definitely for you. Read more at Zafigo here.
