grounded means I am taking action and responsibility, not stuck in what could have been or future tripping before I even get started. It is an approach to mindfulness and movement that comes from within me, and how my body and mind work best, not a forced practice. A grounded approach to wellbeing is compelling, not constraining.
grounded lends itself to an ‘of the earth’ where I can use vegetables from root to leaf, wonder in the healing and taste attributes of spices - and of botanical beauties I can care for my skin with. Where food is deeply nourishing and has the capacity to heal, and to celebrated simultaneously.
grounded lends itself to beautiful things to adorn my life with as a considered consumer, from textiles to ceramics, from flowers to plants. Creativity can literally weave, inch, play and create to help connect us with ourselves, learn from others, and find happiness and self love (beyond food and the usual self care players).
grounded is so closely linked to nature, and the love I have for it. From getting my feet in the earth, and face in the sun - to loving the spray off a rough sea or full overflowing waterfall. Its ability to melt stress away is honoured. Unified by the Earth, and the people that live on it.
grounded also meets I am firmly rooted within my community, and through awesome collaboration leveraging that connection for real social impact in my own back yard, and beyond. Social responsibility as a way of living and doing business, not a direct debit or statement on my website.
