Learn to meditate:
From beginner to experienced. Explore these 3 apps to find what you love. I never thought I’d try meditation and 5-6 years ago I tried for 5 minutes a day for 5 days and it changed my life! The tightness in my chest… gone… and a daily natural high. I did it this morning at 5am and helped me fall back to sleep and calm my mind. It you’re now saying your mind is too busy for meditation, I am still exactly the same and that is exactly the reason why.

OneWave bi-weekly mental and surfing Zoom chats:
OneWave is a non-profit surf community raising awareness of mental health through a simple recipe…saltwater therapy, surfing and fluro. This past 2 weeks, instead of meeting up for Fluro Friday every Friday morning at over 200 beaches worldwide, the team have taken to meeting online twice for week for global get togethers and Zoom calls to share our collective experiences and how we’re all getting through COVID19 in isolation. Big wins and all welcome!
- Free The Funk Wednesday Zoom calls: https://zoom.us/meeting/register/tJUsd–vpjgiB780__VnNLQdqzShay_S_g
- Fluro Friday Zoom calls: https://zoom.us/j/826019930
I have been chatting with my parents and sister this week about us collectively finding things that make us laugh, make us happy and keep us occupied this this strange time. We shared ours with each other and I’ve been sharing meditation links and other resources with peeps on the One Wave (a surfing and mental health community) Zoom calls this past week or so, so I figured that I should actually put them all in one place for my friends and people in my world to discover and utilise at will.
I have zero desire to be another one of those generic, self-appointed Instagram “life coaches” or influencers that have popped up in this past week, however I do have an audience and I want to be able to help the people in my world through this challenging time for all of us if I can, if that makes sense?
If you’ve got more sections that I think you should add to this, then hit me up with your ideas! Happy weekend y’all!

Wagons. Songs from the Aftermath. Psychedelic, space cowboy Henry Wagons and his 6-piece band of misfit entertainers are BACK with a dark, sweaty, bludgeoning country rock LP.
3.5 years ago Henry and I shared a couple of cheeky India Pale Ale craft beers in a Holiday Inn Hotel in Hermosa Beach, California, and together we recorded 2 hours of one of my favourite podcast episodes ever.
Our second time around, we wax lyrical on overseas adventures, Vietnam Vespa iPhone thieves, Scrabble dates versus Netflix & Chill, the evolution from writing solo to collaboration in the deepest form from the stages of embryo, his love of Nashville, 5-year old daughter Casper’s 3RRR artist debut and much, much more.
Podcasting and hanging out with Henry Wagons is an absolute joy! Get it in your ears!

When life throws you lemons, you make a lemon tart.
Nigella Lawson has been tantalising our taste buds for years. Single-handedly bringing sexy back into the kitchen with her smooth rich English accent, voluptuous physique and addiction to alliteration. Women want to be her and men want to be with her. Her life has been filled with the bitter and the sweet.
This week we feature hilarious comedy and cabaret performer Raelene Isbester and her show Nigella Loves Bites on the Hot & Delicious: Rocks The Planet! weekly entrepreneurship podcast ahead of her shows in Sydney this weekend as part of Bondi Feast and Bondi Winter Magic!
Rae and I explore the sugar highs and front page lows of Nigella’s career that are the plot of the show and after successful sellout seasons at Perth Fringe World, Adelaide Fringe, Melbourne Fringe and a stand out Christmas Special, Nigella – Love Bites is on its way to the iconic Bondi Pavillon for three deliciously decadent evenings during Bondi Feast!
I can’t WAIT to see it again this weekend! Let’s get into the podcast!
