Autumn is a time for clearing away and preparing for the cool to come. Harvest those summer veggies and fruits and clear away the garden patch for a new season. For those of you around the sub-tropical zones of South-East QLD and NNSW, these plants are some of the herbs you could incorporate into your Autumn patch.
In the current world we live in, it’s becoming increasingly harder to focus and complete tasks. Our neurotransmitter systems have been hijacked & desensitised by quick and cheap dopamine sources which means showing up to the hard tasks with delayed rewards (aka accounting & tax, creating e-books, writing a novel, finishing uni, producing an album of music etc.) is getting harder and harder. We have become hardwired for the instant.
Your health is a relationship with your body and whole being. It need not be a relationship dominated by the doing of actions like taking herbs, getting massages and going to see therapists, it involves first and foremost LISTENING. Listening to your body’s likes and dislikes of food, listening to what’s underneath your cravings for sugar or coffee or alcohol, listening to when you need rest and when you need exercise and when you needs to sing in the shower at the top of your lungs!
