Happy, happy new year! It’s the dawn of a new day, a new month and whole new year. I love a new year as it gives us the opportunity to review, reflect and start again. Everything that happened yesterday is now in the past and there’s nothing you can do to change the events of the past. But you can influence and change the events of the future, guided by the lessons from the past. For me, 2018 was a roller coaster ride and I’m certainly emerging with more resilience than when I started the year. I’m proud of what we’ve done as a team, in collaboration with some amazing partners, to unleash the RAW or Real Energy that exists inside all us: - Launching a new website - thanks COM Marketing - Launched a white paper - thanks Kamwell -
At this time of year, many people use the opportunity to set #NewYearsResolutions. The trouble is that the research shows that most of us aren’t very successful at sticking to those resolutions. Only 8% of people make it work. So, what to do?
Navigating the Festive Season from a Wellness Perspective Before Australia and my life in health, I spent the majority of my career in publishing and information and learnt all about digital disruption before it even was a thing! Now disruption and transformation dominate discussions around the globe. You are either being disrupted, worrying about being disrupted or planning to disrupt someone else. But working in publishing throughout the first phase of the digital revolution taught me some key skills: to focus on the customer problem to put people and culture first to never be complacent to keep looking ahead and innovating To prioritise my own wellbeing and resilience These basic principles have served me well. But the last one (prioritising wellbeing & resilience) is the one we see super smart people all around the world not doing, often with catastrophic results. Here at Raw Energy, we
About 10 years ago, I stumbled across some advice from a survey of 80-year-old British people. I can't even remember who did the survey, but the list of lessons from people in the later years of life really resonated with me to the extent that I typed it up and stuck it on my wall where it stayed for some time and has proved to be a very useful resource. Since then, we have moved country and house several times, whilst unpacking some boxes the other day, I stumbled across the list. It's a great list of words of wisdom grounded in the experience of life. Today's culture tends to celebrate youth and often forgets the wisdom and guidance that elders can share. Here's one of those gifts for you... ADVICE FROM OLD PEOPLE 1 The most important person in your life is the person who agreed
The Festive season can be a bit of a nightmare when we're trying to live a healthier lifestyle. There are temptations EVERYWHERE and many of us have got into the habit of 'toxing our bodies' through the festive period, and then detoxing big time come January. It doesn't have to be that way. You can have an even more amazing festive time, by eating well which will create more energy, that can be used to have an even more amazing time! To help you fuel your greatness this festive period, Inner Origin have created an amazing recipe guide created by David Wolfe, Pete Evans, Therese Kerr, Luke Baylis and yours truly (with help from Chef Kim). I hope it's a useful resource, do share some pics. Best Lawrence DOWNLOAD NOW! DOWNLOAD NOW!

Highlights We spend 1/3rd of our lives at work and yet research shows that as many as 70% of people are not engaged in their work! Whilst this stat varies by country, it's pretty consistent. Work is not perceived to be a source of positive energy for many people. Moreover, it's a source of stress and anxiety. At RAW Energy, we believe that work and workplaces should be energising growth experiences that support wellbeing. Fortunately, we're not the only ones who thinks this way, and that's why we teamed up with the Wellbeing@Work team to create events and experiences to help individuals who want to make a difference, make that difference. In 2018, we ran the first Wellbeing@Work Conference in Sydney, followed by the first Wellbeing@Work meet up to celebrate the year that has nearly slipped into the history books, and to share and capture some insights
