My Favourite Quote: Amanda Bos, ABLogicLifeCoaching

"There are a lot of messages in society to say 'achieve' and 'be better', but very few messages that say, 'Hey bugger it, you're actually OK for who you are." 
- Adam Ferrier



"This quote inspired me because as an Eating Psychology Coach and who works with men and women to help them restore healthy relationships with food, exercise and body I see a lot of people get caught up in all the "shoulds" about life. They 'should' be better, faster, slimmer, richer, wiser, more attractive.... And there are so many messages in our society which perpetuate this idea and fuel the belief in perfectionism and "not good enough" - The only person you will ever look like is yourself. Taking pride in your appearance is healthy however idealising & worshipping unrealistic images for "inspiration & fit-spiration" can be detrimental."

Amanda Bos is an Eating Psychology Coach focused on restoring healthy relationships with food, exercise, mind and body through the philosophy and concepts of “Intuitive Eating.” Amanda is a Body Image Movement Global Ambassador - Celebrating body diversity and positive body image.

My Perfect Valentine's Day: Martin Gladman

It's important to make your loved one feel special and appreciated on Valentine's Day, says Martin Gladman. Martin believes that this feeling can be created through sharing special moments together, not just by buying gifts and flowers. Here are Martin's other thoughts on creating the perfect Valentine's Day...
1. My perfect Valentine’s Day would include... 
"A surprise ticket to An Intimate Evening Of True Love Songs at the Adelaide Fringe Festival, followed by a walk around Rymil Park and an early night tucked into bed with my partner where we can talk about all the wonders that we have, both together and in this world."

2. My dream Valentine’s Day gift would be... 
"My partner feeling his absolute best (and me too!), completely loved up and joyful, because being around that is absolutely infectious and very beautiful, not only for me, but for all, but that's him everyday not just on Valentine's Day! Outside of that, if I had to choose one gift, then a new eye pillow from Feather Light Productions is a very beautiful and practical thing a man can receive as a special gift."




3. My ultimate Valentine’s indulgence... 
"Is performing in An Intimate Evening Of True Love Songs (!) I know it's a bit of promotional opportunity, but truly, being able to share such an astounding show with a room full of people, getting them up and dancing and joining in on the fun, is pretty awesome and we get to do it twice a day! This is an absolute gift, I can't wait to share it with Adelaide."

4. I’d love to get a Valentine’s card or treat from... 
"Everyone in my life, why build love with one when you can build it with all? I get and give Valentine's gifts every single day but they're not in an object, they're not even about Valentine's, it's about my love - be it in a hug, a word or gesture, they're the ultimate Valentine's Day gifts and they can be given all year round, not just on one day."

My Favourite Quote: Jordan D'Urbano, human behavioural expert

"Don't let your past steal your present" 
- Cherrie L. Moraga 


"This quote resonates with me because quite often people don't realise that past events still remain unresolved in our mind. When this is the case, it's impossible to take any power from adversity therefore the past continues to rule our present."

Jordan D'Urbano is a human behavioural expert. "Far too many people believe they lack drive or a mission in life, well I prove that a mission isn't gained it is awakened". Learn more about Jordan at www.facebook.com/jorddurbano
