How are you managing your energy?

Today’s theme of energy management builds on the concept of identifying and balancing our different buckets which I’ve written about previously in “Getting real about trying to do it all – identifying and balancing out buckets” I’ve enjoyed a recovery day today after a busy few weeks (including the boys picking up conjunctivitis and headlice […]

There’s a reason we’re called human beings and not human doings.

Dear reader, I hope you are well. It’s been a busy and rewarding period for me since my last post including a trip to the UK for my mum’s 60th birthday and moving into a new family home. I’ve been waiting for some writing inspiration and some came through yesterday when a beautiful friend sent […]

You can change your mind and your actions at any time

After my last post ‘Getting real about trying to do it all – identifying and balancing our buckets’ we’ve been getting into our new family routine of work and daycare.

Recently a few friends have said to me “I don’t know how you do it” – referring to looking after Ethan (2 and a half) and Huw (11 months), who are definitely busy bodies when they’re awake! The truth is, sometimes I think the same, there are days where I think it’s all too much […]

Living the wisdom of the Tao: Not overfilling your cup

Whilst away on a recent girls weekend (plus baby Huw) in the quiet countryside I looked in the bookshelf to find a short read and discovered ‘Living the Wisdom of the Tao‘ by Dr Wayne W Dyer. I hadn’t come across this work before, which shares wise words of the Tao Te Ching, a collection […]

A New Earth – How to Drop the Ego and Create a Better Life

I’ve just finished reading ‘A New Earth’ by spiritual teacher Eckhart Tolle and I have to say it’s one of the most thought provoking books I’ve ever read. Maybe this was due to its timing spanning pre and post birth of our recent family addition baby Huw? As discussed with a friend recently, I found […]

Finding The Perfect Imbalance

Great to collaborate with a fellow passionate working mum Claire de Carteret on this article exploring finding the perfect imbalance. As two busy working mums often on the go, let’s start by exploring what balance or imbalance means / looks like for you? Claire: Balance is the symbol of calm and control. A perfect symmetry of harmony […]

Are you Getting into your Green Zone?

How much of your day do you feel that your body’s in stress versus recovery mode? Whilst we can have a guestimate ourselves, there is a way to take a more scientific approach via heart rate variability testing. I recently went through three days of this in the form of a Lifestyle assessment followed by […]
