It is so hard to make decisions in January. Christmas has finished and has probably been a massive upheaval to your daily schedule, food intake and lifestyle in general. With the New Year we have images of how we would like to feel, look and be for the up-coming year. We read stuff, we pay for detoxes and we generally feel cold, hungry, miserable and have headaches from not drinking coffee, alcohol or giving up sugar. We are also all flat broke as the money comes in early in December and goes right back out again in most households. In the northern hemisphere it is dark cold and there isn’t a public holiday coming up till Easter in some parts. This is not a good time to be making rash decisions!
This is the time to be doing the research for the spring!!! This Summit has been put together to combine all of the factors of making changes to becoming that person you envisaged for the year 2014. This is the information you need to make these changes to become that person by the time the year is out- not by the time February comes in.
This is the time to look for inspiration, for guidance, for support and for easy and manageable changes to our daily lives. Ones that our partners and children have time to embrace and accept, ones we can build upon and feel positive about.
So put away the guilt- and take out the pen and paper and start to get inspired!
This Summit is of course FREE as all good information should be. However these wonderful people also deserve some support for their passion and energy to get us where we want to be. I also am rubbish at being able to sit down and listen and absorb so the 24 hour dead line fills me with anxiety already! Here are some options if you are like me!
I am a premium member (I got my money back months ago with all the deals I have saved on!). I chose to treat myself to something which will last longer than a month or couple of weeks. I bought it already- here’s why

“The first supermarket supposedly appeared on the American landscape in 1946. That is not very long ago. Until then, where was all the food? Dear folks, the food was in homes, gardens, local fields, and forests. It was near kitchens, near tables, near bedsides. It was in the pantry, the cellar, the backyard.”
I am really keen to hear this man’s idea on what the future hold’s for us. I am inspired to try and be a creator and provider rather than a constant consumer. He is a great speaker.
When faced with the desire to “get healthier”, even the best intentions can get lost in the details, especially if you’ve read about “diets” such as Paleo or Zone. Trying to figure out what to eat, when to eat it and how to modify your eating and shopping habits can get so overwhelming that it’s easy to revert to status quo.
My fellow blogger at Stupid Easy Paleo. She is also an amazing athlete. Her approach and style are both something I completely relate to. I like her blog so am looking forward to hearing and applying what she has to say.
ven if you don’t like dessert and chocolate doesn’t call your name daily, you’d probably be surprised to see how much sugar and starch sneaks into your daily meals. While this cleanse helps you move away from literal sugar, even more importantly it helps you identify and root out all the other sources of sugar and starch in your diet. It’s also a great way to kick start a real-food lifestyle, get your energy back, and lose a couple of inches while you’re at it.
If you have not come across Margaret at Eat Naked– you should check it out. Sugar is involved in many of today’s chronic conditions. Much more than fat- even though fat has always taken the blame. I am looking forward to getting some great tips and recipes to reduce refined sugar intake. I always need more inspiration to help control sugar intake!
Being able to let go of the stuff you don’t need and organize the things you do will be one of the most empowering things you ever do. It will give you more time, money, space, and mental energy to make the most of your life. I’ve seen too many people weighed down by clutter, and it’s my hope to help others escape the cycle
Robin Konie of Thank Your Body‘s book Clutter Free was one of my top 10 books I read in 2013. I am surrounded by stuff and have such a fear of throwing stuff away. Her book has really empowered me to move on and release some of the anxiety and ‘stuff’ clouding my life! She has also written some other amazing books and I have a great respect for her and I look forward to listening to her and I so need to get from 2678 to 0 in my inbox!!!
I also know that there is nothing more miserable than hating where you
live and wanting to be somewhere else, regardless of the reason.
But I’m here to tell you that it doesn’t have to be that way. We can learn to
be content with our situations, even if they are less than what we consider
to be our “ideal.”
Living 27 floors up with no outside space is not ideal for me and my husband loves getting his hand dirty and in the earth. I really am interested to hear Jill from The Prairie Homestead. I am already a big fan of her practical advice and awesome homemade dish soap!
Over 6 months ago, we were $50,000 in debt. I think it was when we actually sat down and wrote out each balance we had for each debt. We never thought of student loans as debt that should be paid off quickly…same for car loans. However, we realized that debt is debt and we wanted to get rid of it as soon as we could.
We desperately need a strategy to pay off our debt. I always struggle to live within my means and have a ostrich approach to finances most of the time. It is time for us to get smart and think about our present rather than the future and sort it out. I respect Jackie from The Paleo Mama and I like her style- this is one of the lectures I am really looking forward to
Part of what it means to be human is to understand our place in a pre-established universe. And inside that universe there are certain physical, chemical rules. If you increase carbon dioxide in the atmosphere there are certain effects that you have to deal with.
Josh is so passionate about using science to get us out of the funk we are in with our environment. I am keen to listen to his thoughts on how we balance science and nature. I wish we would use the technology we have for alternative green fuels.
That is just day 1! I dont know about you but for all that information I would happily at least sign up for free!!!
