Christmas comes with a funny quirk of high expectations (and not just from the kids!). Us adults also linger on the edge of wanting Christmas day to be special and memorable, which can often lead to high stress, but there is only so much we can do. In this blog, we look how we can physically and mentally manage our own expectations without overloading our schedule.
Is the thought of Christmas planning making you feel like you're already knee-deep in things to do that you have no idea how or when it will get done? Yes, there is so much to do, organise, and prepare but with a little creativity, you'll get there. In this blog, I share with you some planning tips.
Christmas is expensive. Every year, the bank balance looks significantly painful by the time December rolls around. It's believed that one in five of us will end up in debt this Christmas, leading to a stress none of us wants. However, there are ways, which are not magical but common sense, to curb our spending this year (and every year).
It's often left to mum to take on the extra load of the festive season. We are possibly already overwhelmed as mothers, throw in Christmas, and it's anyone's guess how we don't end up as Scrooge or the Grinch as the weeks count down. So how do we go from overwhelmed to organised this Christmas? Find out in this blog.
Whether you’ve started your Christmas shopping list or it’s just starting to come to the front of your mind, I’ve got the perfect Irish Christmas gift guide for your wife, sister, daughter, a new mama or mama-to-be in your life.
Embracing winter can feel long and cold, and a challenge for a lot of us, but it’s much easier to enjoy this season than you think with a little bit of Hygge. Think about having a cosy, warm, comforting time where the days feel slower and quieter. In this blog, we show you how.
Hygge is often said to feel like a hug after a long day. The ultimate goal is familiehygge, spending time together, getting cosy and appreciating one another. Kids grow up learning the importance of the simple joys of life and discover gratitude along with a positive mindset and well-being.
Tis the season of slowing down and finding comfort as the leaves change colour and the weather turns. It’s a time for intention and navigating purpose as we recognise how far we have come in yet another long and trying year. Hygge comes from the Danish word for the feeling of contentment, a bit like a personal hug. Find out in this blog, why it's so good for our self-care rituals.
With the summer months now behind us and the focus turned to school runs, homework and meal plans, it’s important to remember that we need to look after ourselves as much as the kids, house, and workload. By putting our own happiness and health first, the whole family benefits. Self-care is not selfish, let's embrace it.
During stressful or difficult moments in life, our breath can help reset our minds, combat anxiety, and improve the quality of our sleep. Becoming more conscious of our breathing means we can manage better at home and work. So, how can we focus on our breathing to help us with the overwhelming motherload of motherhood?
