Setting up 2019 for success

I hope everyone’s 2019 has started well. We’ve been enjoying family time in Jindabyne for a triathlon camp with the wonderful Energylink Coaching community. Some quiet moments in between training and hanging out with the boys has provided me with some reflection time to look back on 2018 and set some short and long term […]

Compassion for a Cockroach

A few weeks ago I witnessed a beautiful encounter of compassion between our three year old Ethan, 20 month old Huw and a cockroach that I thought others may enjoy hearing. On Friday morning, Ethan and Huw had woken up and we were taking the usual walk down a few stairs into the lounge when […]

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 […]

We’re now connected and are meditation accountability buddies across the globe. My Gen Z friends Kya and Bri have started to use it too which makes me really […]

How do you want to remember this time?

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 […]

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 […]

Parent as Coach

In October last year I went to the International Coach Federation Australasia conference on the Gold Coast. One of my favourite sessions, (perhaps topically being mum to a toddler Ethan with another one on the way!)  was a workshop by Tracy Tresidder called ‘Parent as Coach’. As well as being useful for parents I think […]

Finding your Flow

In my last post I shared some learning from a Golden Door Health Retreat ‘Fostering a Growth Mindset’ seminar. Here I reflect on a subsequent seminar by David Bott from the Institute of Positive Education looking at the state of flow. Steven Kotler (co-founder of the Flow Genome Project), describes flow as an ‘optimal state of […]
