recycleHi all! As you're probably aware, it’s the second last day of July…so perhaps it's technically a little late to jump on the Plastic Free July bandwagon if you haven’t already. (Read more about it HERE if you’re unsure what we're rambling about). But why only commit to one month of trying to reduce waste? Why not make it an overall lifestyle change? (Side note - it'll also do your wallet and health huge favours by saving money and naturally avoiding packaged foods). Here are just a few ideas you can adopt to get you on your way to reducing, reusing and recycling.

chicken soupHi all! You know that age old saying of soup being good for the soul? We honestly believe it's true! The cooler months are often a time when we can start to feel a little low on energy and not have quite the same mojo that we had over summer. In winter, it's completely appropriate to take some time out, rest more, slow down and do less. And sometimes, we can feel like we just don't have enough juice in the tank to get through or enjoy our everyday tasks/lives. That's where this chicken soup comes in!

As health practitioners, we can’t help but think about how the external environment affects us. And we love how we can use the dynamics of each season to better our health. By tuning into what your body needs this winter, you can help nourish your body, mind and soul.

sleepWe have a question for you...do you sleep like a baby? Simply hop into bed, shut your eyes and head off to the lovely land of nod...no tossing or turning, pure blissful sleep...until you wake the next morning feeling super refreshed and energised? I'm going to guess that the answer is no, because, unfortunately, a staggering number of us struggle with sleep. Whether it's falling asleep, staying asleep, or the quality of sleep itself...almost every person we speak to has some sort of trouble catching their zzz's.

treating-injuriesHello all! We want to take the time to share some new information on ice and heat for injuries and inflammation! Okay, it's not NEW but it’s not information that has been well circulated, and old habits still reign. We're about to summarise A LOT of content about how to use ice and heat for injuries and inflammation, so chunks will be missing but please feel free to email us at info@tonikahealth.com.au if you have any questions.
