We are constantly bombarded by things we must buy around this time of year, and it can be overwhelming finding the perfect gift for a loved-one. Mine and Tom's approach is to gift each other experiences or find small brands, that can benefit both our own health, and the health of the planet.
It is very easy to forget that we also need to be kind to ourselves, so I like to gift myself something, as an act of self-respect and love. In recent years, I've sought out gifts that nourish me, but also drive personal growth - and this has been SO rewarding!
Last Christmas, I gifted myself sessions with spiritual life coach - Sanna Purinton and the past 12 months have been a beautiful journey of self discovery with her guidance. There have been plenty of tears and belly laughs, but I feel more whole in myself today as a result.
Below I have shared a curated selection of experiences that I've had my eye on that I know will have a transformational effect on your life or that of a loved one.
These experiences are never "cheap", but they are an investment into our health, for life! Their effects send positive ripples to those around us and can have a profound effect in our communities. If we want to see true change in this world, we really must begin with ourselves and our communities.
