Merry Christmas 2021

GFH Christmas 2021

Well, Christmas already and the end of the year one week later!

Another peculiar year unless you were living in a State which did not experience extended lock downs.  Here in Queensland we had some sort of luck.  However, the threat was always close.  As we had to rely on the State Government to make the decisions as to whether businesses opened or stayed closed.  I have met so many people who felt it easier to be employees now rather then take the risk and run a business where they had to interact with other people face to face.  They are happier financially, although they miss what they were previously doing!

I do hope you are able to spend time with family and friends in this uncertain period.  We are all looking forward to living life as normal as possible when we are told what normal is!

Just want to send our most sincere thoughts toward you and your family for a wonderful and safe Christmas.  Please take care and enjoy it as much as you can.

PS – I am selling the fully functioning GFH website and all the social media which is attached, four FB pages, Twitter and Instagram.  Including the over three and half years of content and contact form.  All the buyer needs to do is redirect the URL of their preferred domain.  Then go into each of the articles and redirect those URLs.  The lot for $3,000 AUD or the equivalent in crypto.

Know anyone??? There is a finder’s fee of $200!!!!

Bartering to live the life you desire

Bartering to live the life you desire

Bartering is the act of exchanging goods for goods of the same or similar value as perceived by the transactors.  This could be services for services, or cash for an equal perceived value!

Nowadays, bartering is very different to what it was like many years ago when backyards had vegetable gardens, and people had chickens to produce eggs.  Now, it is the almighty dollar which determines how “richly” a person lives.  Backyards are much smaller.  Houses are a different shape and designed with air conditioning for comfort in contrast to the old “Queenslander” which allowed for natural air flow and cooling.


Looking after our health is vital to living a long and happy life. But how do you ensure that you’re looking after all aspects of your well-being? This blog is part of a series of seven blogs on this topic.

Seven Elements for Well-being

We’ve come up with a list of seven elements that we believe contribute to living a healthy, happy life. Over the next weeks we’ll look at them one by one –

Fire – Take a daily dose of sun and grab some vitamin D
Water – Hydration is fundamental and bathing is pretty important too!
Air – Fresh air, take it in with simple breathing exercises
Earth – Grounding through Meditation (the importance of controlling your thoughts and relaxing your mind) and Family (embrace your close relationships to share experiences and life milestones)
Exercise – There’s no denying how vital exercise is to health and we discuss several types with big benefits
Keeping it Simple – Bartering, working to support your lifestyle and reducing material stressors


Are you comfortable with your current Lifestyle? Do you have enough cash flow to barter to live the life you really want?

Are you comfortable with answering those questions truthfully to someone else, or just to yourself?

Being comfortable is understood in numerous ways that vary person to person.  For example – I have met many people who thoroughly enjoy living in a shack in the country.  They have a sustainable garden which they tend and change what they produce with the seasons so they have enough food to get them by.  They’ll have chickens for eggs, occasionally a roast dinner, tank water for drinking and cooking and only purchase their clothes from second hand stores. They earn enough money to get them by.

I’ve also met people who would cringe at having to live like that because living in a multi story building with white walls is all they know.  Electricity is as easy as walking over to the power point or wall and flicking a switch.  Wi-fi is on call and electronic gismos for all occasions!  Although this may be a rich life for some, others prefer a large house with multiple rooms for each purpose.

Look what happened in the COVID-19 crisis when people were quarantined and people with regular housekeepers for their housework had to do it themselves.  Some learned how to work their washing machine for the first time, clean their house, and, home school their kids. These additions to routine were stressful for many.

So, it all comes down to lifestyle and how you like to live.  Are you comfortable?  If not look at how to increase what you’re currently doing to increase the financial flow and, ultimately achieve the lifestyle you desire. 

This may mean exchanging what you currently own and replacing it with what you want or need.  If you’re renting and want to buy a house you’ll need to stash the cash and save for the deposit.  However, you still need to convince the bank you can repay the loan if you borrow.  With my own experience even applying for a small loan is difficult enough after the commission enquiry!

If you do not have the cash flow you desire you’ll need to look at alternatives to make it.  Options include –

  • Getting another job on top of what you are currently doing (a side hustle)
  • Going to university to increase your learning to get a higher paid job
  • Mortgaging the house to buy a franchise for anything from $50,000 to $250,000 with the hope that you get all the support you need  (looking around at the businesses that may not be opening up again for some time or not at all after the lockdown is over.  A lot of them are franchises that didn’t survive, however, the franchisee still has to pay the franchisor even though the business failed.  A great number of times with franchises the franchisee is trapped into purchasing products or ingredients from the franchisor at a much higher price then they could source in other ways for their store or business.)

Begin your own online business

Another alternative is to begin your own online business where you don’t touch the goods or do the deliveries, an example of this is InnerOrigin. 

With InnerOrigin you don’t even have to source the products as the Product Advisory Board does all the screening for you.  All you’re doing is to purchase a site which is filled with product and promoting the products and for each item you promote and sell you receive commission. 

The commission received is anything from $199, through to $3,000.  Your personal goal will reflect your goals for your future and life. 

With world renowned Ambassadors, training and guidance you too can have a business which can provide the lifestyle you feel you deserve.  You just have to work for it.  If you do the business right you can create a lifestyle of any kind.  Want to live, travel and work from a laptop?  That can be your lifestyle too!

6 Lifestyle Tips That Can Keep You Looking and Feeling Young

Are you feeling every one of your years lately? Well there is good news! Chronological age is not the only determinant of health and wellness. You can feel healthier and younger by following these seven lifestyle tips.

Ready to make healthier choices? Shop at Groceries for Health for authentic, locally
sourced, and organic products!

1. Exercise Daily

Exercising regularly is, perhaps, the most critical determinant of how fast you age. Not only
does physical activity immediately reduce your stress and boost your mood, but MedlinePlus notes it also provides many long-lasting health benefits:

  • Improvements in bone density and muscle strength
  • Reduction in cardiovascular disease
  • Better weight control
  • A boost to your immune system
  • Relief from arthritis
  • Decreased risk of cancer and diabetes
  • Relief from depression and anxiety
  • Increase in longevity

The type of exercise doesn’t matter as long as you achieve your target heart rate for at least 20 minutes a day. Also, it’s helpful to incorporate more movement into your daily life. Take stairs instead of the elevator and park a greater distance from the mall or office to sneak in extra steps. To round out your exercise, and to aid in stretching and strengthening, consider taking up yoga. Sixty + Me explains that with live streaming classes for all experience levels, you can improve your posture, enhance your balance, ward off back pain and feel younger.

Tracking your progress is both motivating and encourages accountability, and it doesn’t need to be a burden. You can monitor your achievements through any number of fitness trackers, all of which can be customized with fun accessories like funky or elegant bands. If you prefer paper and pen for tracking, a beautiful, personalized wellness journal can be just the ticket.

2. Drink Enough Water

Every cell and organ in your body requires water to perform, and when you become dehydrated, the health impacts can be severe. To ensure that your body has enough water to function properly, hydrate throughout the day. Thirst is often an accurate guide to when you should drink, and Livestrong notes sometimes you might even feel hungry. In general, it’s best to aim for at least 2.7 litres per day if you are a woman and 3.7 litres if you are a man.

3. Prioritize Sleeping

Consistently getting a good night’s sleep is one of the best things you can do for your health. Inadequate sleep hygiene can decrease your level of focus and energy while increasing anxiety and depression. There are also physical consequences, including weight gain, elevated risk of heart disease, and increased inflammation. To optimize your sleep, try implementing a few of these suggestions to help you get the rest you need:

  • Invest in a quality mattress and pillow
  • Maintain a consistent sleep schedule
  • Keep your bedroom temperature around 65°F
  • Increase natural light exposure during the day
  • Decrease blue light exposure in the evening
  • Avoid both caffeine and alcohol late in the day

4. Improve Your Gut Health

Per Healthline, your gut microbiome influences many aspects of your wellness. When unhealthy microbes overtake their healthy counterparts, the imbalance can negatively impact how you feel. By taking a probiotic every day, you can boost the number of beneficial microbes, and in turn, may improve digestion, reduce bloating, increase your immunity, and reduce inflammation.

5. Take a Technology Break

In today’s high-tech world, a lot of people are constantly connected to their phones or
computers. While you probably can’t avoid using a laptop for your work, Kitchy Living points out you can take a social media hiatus. Scheduling a break from Facebook and other social platforms can free up mental space and give you critical time to reflect. Once you try it, you might decide that the peace and calm you’ve gained is worth keeping.

6. Revitalize Your Living Space

There are times when a home can feel unorganized and stressful rather than peaceful and
nurturing. Perhaps there is discord among family members, or maybe your house feels messy and chaotic.

Infuse your home with better energy by making simple changes. First, let in some fresh air by opening windows. Next, devote a few hours to cleaning and decluttering the house. You may be surprised to see how much you can accomplish in a short amount of time. Finally, add a few small touches to brighten up the space. Candles, fairy lights, or a new set of bed linens can provide a positive improvement for little money.

Adopting some or all of these suggestions can improve your wellness and mitigate the effects of aging. By making wiser choices today, you can help ensure a better tomorrow!

Exercise Regularly to Improve your Life (and keep disease at bay)

exercise regularly to improve your life

When it comes to exercise, the benefits are countless, yet, a lot of people do not consider spending a small chunk of their day indulging in exercise.

Not only does it make your bones healthy and strong, but also strengthens your muscles, helps with your balance and is advantageous for your overall health.


Looking after our health is vital to living a long and happy life. But how do you ensure that you’re looking after all aspects of your well-being? This blog is part of a series of seven blogs on this topic.

Seven Elements for Well-being

We’ve come up with a list of seven elements that we believe contribute to living a healthy, happy life. Over the next weeks we’ll look at them one by one –

Fire – Take a daily dose of sun and grab some vitamin D
Water – Hydration is fundamental and bathing is pretty important too!
Air – Fresh air, take it in with simple breathing exercises
Earth – Grounding through Meditation (the importance of controlling your thoughts and relaxing your mind) and Family (embrace your close relationships to share experiences and life milestones)
Exercise – There’s no denying how vital exercise is to health and we discuss several types with big benefits
Keeping it Simple – Bartering, working to support your lifestyle and reducing material stressors


A little activity throughout the day keeps you mentally and physically fit. Exercise can be anything from squats, cycling, swimming, walking, and running to taking the stairs or even cleaning the house or pushing a grocery cart.

The Benefits of Regular Exercise

  • Assists with weight loss
  • Good for bones and muscles
  • Makes you feel joyous, releases endorphins
  • Aids in better sleeping and rest
  • Relaxes the mind and improves memory

Although there are various forms of exercises, several are really vital to your health. These include core strength exercise, resistance training and bone strength exercise.

Core Strength Exercise

This type of exercise strengthens your core muscles which include the muscles of the back back, abdominal and pelvic muscles. When you have strong core muscles, you can carry out many physical activities with great ease and achieve good upright posture.

Among the core strength exercises are crunches, plank, bridge, bird dog, side plank, bicycle crunch and warrior crunch.

Resistance Training

Resistance training is a form of exercise which helps to improve your endurance and muscular fitness. These type of exercises cause your muscles to contract in opposition to a type of external resistance.

Exercises in resistance training include use of medicine balls, weight machines, resistance bands, your own body weight and, free weights.

Bone Strength Exercise

Exercise is crucial for bone health and aids in preventing osteoporosis by building bone density. Forms of weight bearing physical activity will help to keep your bones healthy. So, partaking in exercises like walking, climbing, gymnastics, dancing, and lifting weights can help to improve your bone strength.

Daily exercise is not only good for your fitness but also enhances your mental health and can improve your mood. Adequate daily exercise can prevent or minimise chronic diseases and their effects and, thereby potentially increasing your life span.

As well as regular exercise, healthy eating including buying organic food for yourself and your family is of utmost importance.

The Large Intestine: A Key Player in Your Gut

The Large Intestine: A Key Player in Your Gut

The large intestine plays a critical role in our overall health and well-being. Many of us take it for granted, or simply believe it’s just “our stomach” and what we consume has no effect on it.

What does the large intestine do?

This organ is about six feet long and consists of the cecum, the colon, the rectum and the anus. One of the primary functions of the large intestine is maintaining a bacterial population of over 700 different species. How we take care of ourselves (mostly our diet) is directly related to the balance that we have with all of those bacteria.

Some of the key benefits from the bacteria in the large intestine include boosting our immune system, producing vitamins such as vitamin K and B, stimulating the release of hormones, and influencing our mood and overall wellbeing. The benefits are endless when it comes to the vast array of bacteria in our gut!

Another key function of the large intestine is the elimination and formation of faeces. The residual water from the small intestine is converted to faeces, which is made up of indigestible food, bacteria, inorganic salts and epithelial cells.

Vitamin absorption is another primary function of the large intestine. The vitamins absorbed are actually produced by its own bacteria, allowing it to breakdown any remaining fibre and polysaccharides (carbohydrates). An individual’s diet can affect vitamin deficiencies, especially if they are taking antibiotics.

The absorption of water and electrolytes, antibody production and acid reduction are all added benefits of the large intestine. Water is absorbed through the process of osmosis, and sodium is absorbed through the sodium/potassium pump located within the colon.

A large portion of our immune system is actually within the large intestine, comprised of the lymphoid tissues. These tissues assist with the creation of antibodies which in turn fight off harmful bacteria, preventing infections within our bodies. The mucosa of the large intestine also allows for acid neutralization, protecting against microbial infections.

How to keep it healthy

Increasing your overall wellness is a crucial aspect to keeping your large intestine healthy. One key habit to maintaining overall gut health is to eat frequent, small meals. This will boost your metabolism and aid in preventing any digestive issues. Make it a goal to consume 5-6 smaller, balanced meals including fibre, protein and whole foods (nothing processed).

When choosing fibrous foods, some great choices include fruits, vegetable, legumes and whole grains. Another impactful habit to create is to drink plenty of water daily. Your goal should be to drink 2 litres of water daily. The benefits of hydration for your body are endless, and you will experience an increase in energy and overall wellness.

Remember that you are only given one body, and your job is to care for it to the best of your ability. Your body needs the right fuel, just like your car. Educate yourself on the proper nutrients you need and you will reap the benefits from making healthier choices for your gut health. Once you create these healthy habits, stick to them! Your body will thank you in the long run.
