We live in a world where so much is out of our control and the world can be constantly spinning in the opposite direction we would like to go in. Slowing down and disconnecting ourselves from the fast pulse of society is a must and we have to learn to listen to ourselves to tune out and tune in to what's important to us personally.
For many of us, the idea that self-care is necessary only strikes us when we reach our lowest. But really, it should never get that far. Self-care is a preventative measure. It’s something we do for ourselves, so we never have to hit these plateaus in our life. Here's how you can create that all-important self-care ritual.

We’ve spent the summer consumed by the needs of our kids and we may have forgotten ourselves along the way. Now that we have landed in September with schools back, we have the opportunity to put ourselves first. But first, let me explain to you the secret to successful self-care.
For many of us there comes a time when we realise our working situation and the work life balance which comes with that, is not helping us in anyway. When children come along, what we recognise as our core beliefs and values can change and we may begin to question if running out the door at 7am is worth it as we leave the baby at the childminders. For some it is, for others it isn’t.
It’s essential to recognise that our mental wellbeing is vitally important as a parent. After the upheaval of the summer holidays, we can find time to properly care for ourselves again. That's why I'm running a Self-Care Challenge for September to get back in tune with yourself and genuinely understand the meaning of self-care for you.
Even with all of the changes and uncertainties we’ve faced over the last eighteen months, we still want our kids to have a happy, safe, and engaging year at school. In a world that keeps spinning under duress, how can we mentally prepare our kids as they set to return to school this autumn under a prevailing cloud?
The care-free days of the summer have been a welcome break from a year compounded by so much juggling, home schooling and cancellation after cancellation. But August has rolled around again and it’s not a bad idea to kick start some of those routines and habits we know will help with a smooth transition for back to school.
The bittersweet ending of the school holidays are around the corner and the transition from preschool to big school can be overwhelming not only for us, as parents, but also our child. This blog is about how we can guide our kids to the front door of their school with positivity and enthusiasm.
We are deeply passionate about helping other mothers find their worth, allowing the world to see their value and showing yourself that little bit of appreciation. I want to help you understand what it means to value yourself over these summer holidays. And why appreciating yourself will make this summer one of your best yet.
