Hi all, We will be donating 100% of ALL BOOK SALES TO
AUSTRALIAN FIRE-RELIEF SUPPORT FOR THE MONTH OF JANUARY.
We really want to help raise funds for these amazing charities in a way that also helps those donating to receive something that helps them cope with the collective anxiety everyone is feeling either as a result of being directly or indirectly affected.
$39.95 from every book you buy here will be distributed to a variety of charities that we will choose each week according to where the needs are that week. We will only give funds to charities where we know the funds are 100% being used towards this cause.
To date, we have donated to:
Red Cross, Animals Australia (to fly vets into areas and also fly injured animals out to sanctuaries), WIRES and the amazing Karan White project (who you may have seen the trucks heading out with supplies for wildlife support ALL AROUND AUSTRALIA!!)
It's time to turn our anxious feelings into action- helping others helps us feel empowered too, and I hope my book also helps inspire you to find joy in everyday no matter what you are facing or feeling.
Stay safe & sending love to all who need it,
Does life feel like a rollercoaster? On top one minute, exhausted and stressed the next?
Discover how to REST . RELAX . RESTORE the iKOU way
Over fifteen years ago, Naomi was driven to find a solution to a skin condition that plagued her and her husband. After becoming passionate about organic skincare and wellness, they healed their skin. Later, in a moment of clarity while on holiday, Naomi decided to create a lifestyle that she has now built into a brand – iKOU.
Follow Naomi’s journey from iKOU’s early days in a Blue Mountains kitchen to the international brand it is today. Share in her business story and the tools she’s discovered as a busy woman (and a self-confessed high-achiever!) that help her to de-stress, create abundant energy and get organised to enjoy every precious day – no matter how busy it might be.
This book is an inspiring read; Naomi opens her heart and reminds us to follow our dreams to be the healthiest and happiest versions of ourselves every day.
"Your book literally energises me while reading and makes me want to continue reading all night!"
"I'm enjoying reading your book tremendously, and am often hearing myself say "YES" aloud!"
"I have just spent a big chunk of my weekend reading your book, I couldn't put it down. I buy lots of wellness books but a lot of the time never finish them. this one just spoke to me."
"Dear Naomi, Paul and fabulous team at iKOU,
I recently purchased two copies of your book as I saw your short video about giving the entire book purchase price to the fire support efforts.
I had wanted it at Christmas for myself, but felt I probably had enough self-care books already.
And, this year 2020 is my year of 'only intentional spending- no stuff' I have a wee problem with accumulating stuff.
Your book arrived very quickly two days ago and today I sat down with my copy and for the last few hours have been reading it.
Your words are so full of integrity, vulnerability and care. I have not been able to put it down.
Other books I have read that purport to support readers in their own wellbeing journey have usually only been briefly dipped into, or I might read a chapter here and there. They are then just put away.
I LOVE your book. It is a wonderful gift to the world, like the iKOU brand and your loving and lovely products.
I cried when you wrote about losing your Mum, and was touched by your journey through loss, great success, your bike accident, health challenges from exhaustion, love, and growth.
I also recently saw your post about sharing food with the many animals suffering from the bush fires. What a big heart you have.
I am vegan too and your recipes have inspired me more than I think any other recipe books have (and, yes I have lots and lots of Vegan recipe books to join all the other stuff I have!). I think it is because the recipes connect with your story. I am making dhal tonight.
Thank you Naomi for the blessing that is iKOU. I have used your products for many years. I remember buying the iKOU candle in white and green packaging many many years ago. I am loving the candle range and body range you have now. I made several purchases on two recent trips to Sydney for myself and for Christmas presents. I love the white flannel products and am even more intrigued now I know the story behind them.
Thank you for creating this beautiful book. I know I will continue to refer to it for your recipes and messages. I am so pleased that I bought a second copy for my friend. She is going through challenging times right now, and I know will find your book a real blessing.
Best wishes to you Naomi and to Paul for your continued health, wellbeing and abundance, Del"
WANT TO SET WELLNESS PATTERNS THAT GIVE YOU ABUNDANT ENERGY & INSPIRATION?
This is the printable download journal page from pages 256/257 in my book "iKOU- ENERGISE YOUR LIFE".
The idea is to print and journal your wellness patterns for 4 weeks to see how your daily patterns make a difference!
Our daily actions make up the sum of our life, and by keeping a record we can easily see what things are draining our life and what things are energising it- and adjust accordingly.
If you have a day you feel flat or lacking energy, reference the previous day or two and you will most likely find that by changing your actions you will be able to feel energised and inspired.
Example, fuelling your body better, getting to bed earlier, drinking more water, consuming less alcohol/ caffeine.
The key is to be honest with yourself in your recording and your analysis.
Then on daily reflection use this information for 3 things.
1. STOP: What things do you need to stop doing that are exhausting you?
2. START: What things can you change in your life and start doing to make you feel great?
3. CONTINUE: What things are really working for you that you want to continue the habit of no matter how busy you are?
Examples would be:
I want to stop winding down with a glass or two of wine each night, I want to start using meditation to relax and I want to continue my morning exercise regime.
- It takes time to build new habits, so stick with it even if it feels difficult to stay on track some times!
- Remind yourself what these new patterns achieve for you in the way you feel based on the results you have journaled.
- Tell others what your goals are. As humans we don't like failure, so making our goals public will mean we are more likely to stick to them.
I'd love to hear how you are going and the positive change you have experienced in your life as a result of my book.
These are the things that really make a difference in my own life to help me de-stress, create abundant energy and enjoy every precious day no matter how busy it is.
I hope these tools help you make 2020 the year to "Energise your life"!!
