Thanks and farewell

Thanks and farewell

Hi Reader,

Over the last four and half years whilst growing the number of articles on Groceries for Health I’ve tried to provide relevant information on keeping yourself healthy and encouraging you to consider taking a closer look at what and how you consume foods and take care of your body.  From inside and out!  I can only provide the information, it’s still up to you to take the action!

I certainly have taken the action and have really enjoyed the experience.  At 55 years old I may have retired from being a full time Karate student but  I still train twice a week at a local dance hall I have access to!  I have participated in the art of Karate for the past 12.5 years and have gained a lot of skills over that journey.  So, I did not want to lose what I have learnt. 

Twice a week I still do an hour and half to two hour session of training.  Plus, I do a physical workout at home each Saturday.  To do this I must keep focus and look after my body, both inside and out.  For me, physical fitness is important not simply for it’s own sake but also to maintain my balance and the strength of my bones.  Being blind I occasionally walk into objects I didn’t know were there, so, avoiding falling over is another reason to stay fit and have balance.

For myself I have taken a little from each of the articles that have been created and taken it on as knowledge for my current life and my future.  You can do the same.  

As you may remember, if you do a search through the articles, I am vision impaired/blind.  This I don’t see as a disability.  I see it as a bloody hindrance!  Having said that, my blindness allows me to view life in a different way to a lot of sighted people.  I don’t get caught up in the marketing on the streets, shop fronts, shopping centres, supermarkets when I go shopping.  And I don’t see myself getting older when standing in front of the mirror!!!  By the way if you can see the wrinkles on your face in the mirror you’re standing too close! Ha ha 🙂

This will be the last post coordinated by me.  So the next person who takes this site on will have the reigns and guide you on their journey.  I have learnt so much about owning and running a website with social media.  So many issues arise without notice and having the right people around me to rectify the problems have helped a great deal.  Websites and social media is very much a sighted persons activity as images are vital these days.  Security tickets and renewals are a surprise when they appear.  Same thing though, having the right people around you helps.  I’ve paid for all of this and have sincerely appreciated the help I have received.

Rachel, my Virtual Assistant has been in the back ground doing all the work on my behalf.  Without her this website would not have progressed as it has.  She’s been my eyes and Social Media Queen, you might say!  She has also taken on learning about marketing on the platforms to enhance her skills.  Thus improving the look of the online business.

All the visuals I definitely could not do myself so I thank Rachel so much for her assistance, experience,  ideas and guidance.

The online presence of Groceries for Health is still up for sale.  So, consider this; All the work has been done as far as the set up.  All the purchaser has to do is purchase your preferred domain URL, find a host, and redirect the traffic.  There is already over four years of blog articles populating the site which is key to any online business.  People look for longevity and this site has been around for a good length.  It’s up to you to make it last longer.

I wish you all the best in any endeavours you choose to take on.  The sun will rise tomorrow and you can’t stay in bed all day as it will just get messy.

As we say in Australia. “See ya’”

Happy New Year 2022

GFH New Year 2022

Here is the last article before the year 2022.

How exciting is that!  Unfortunately we have no idea what is ahead of our journey of life from January!  The last two years have certainly been an experience in many ways!  With lockdowns. Lockups, and lock outs and it may happen all over again even with the minimum 80% vaccinated. 

I’d just like to ask that you are strong and have belief that somewhere down the track is the end of the tunnel and the whole world can live with this current situation and move forward.

I am unsure of what the year 2022 holds for me and the running of this site.  However, till I also make a decision we’ll ensure there is an article here for you to read each week.

Please have a most wonderful and safe New Years.  If you’re driving please be safe.  If you have a drink, be with friends and stay safe.  If you go to any fireworks follow the rules and make it home safe.  “I think the message is to be safe” Chuckling here!!!!

 Breathing is one of my addictions, as the alternative isn’t the best!

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!!!

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.

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!

Get in contact and you can tell me where you want to end up and we can talk about it.

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.

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.
