Friday night in with Ann-Maree from Change Your Thoughts

Ann-Maree is the most positive, fun-fueled lady I know! She is always ready to have a good time, and she omits such a beautiful calmness that it's impossible to feel down around her!

I have known Ann-Maree for a short while now and she's my go-to gal for a kick in the butt when I'm in need of some motivation or to adjust my focus. She literally lives, breathes and embodies her business name 'Change Your Thoughts'. 

Find out a little more about this lovely lady below.


Share a little about yourself

Im Ann-Maree. I just turned 35 years young and only been back in Australia since last june after 12 months in hong kong. I have been known to take the occasional selfie hehe


How did your business come about?

I was living in hong kong last year. When I moved over there I was coming out of a toxic relationship, just left an area manager role in the beauty industry and  completed a reconnective healing course with the intention to start life over thinking that Sydney just wasn’t where IT was at for me.

But as the saying goes you can’t run away from your problems and being half way across the globe seemed to only intensify what I was running from which was basically myself.

I grabbed 3 pieces of paper on the first I wrote Change, the second Your and the third Thoughts.  As I woke up every morning I read CHANGE YOUR THOUGHTS over and over before I did anything else and last thing before I went to bed at night.

When I finally made the decision to move back to Sydney late last year I had realized my desire to assist others to through personalized physical, mental and spiritual exercises was really my life purpose.


The most rewarding part of your job?
