When we think of de-cluttering, we tend to concentrate on the physical nature of clutter. However, it is often the emotional impact clutter has on your life that makes it so unbearable.

If your home requires attention, you are probably experiencing feelings of guilt and embarrassment, such as:

  • How did I manage to accumulate so many unwanted things?
  • How much money have I wasted?
  • Why can’t I maintain a tidy home?

The first thing to do when addressing your clutter is to rid yourself of the negative thoughts you are harbouring about your situation. All mums know just how easy it is to...

At Empowering Mums, we actively encourage our mums to take control of their lives and to take care of themselves. Here are some great tips to ensuring ‘me time’ becomes a reality in your life.

Value Yourself: Value Your Time
If you constantly find yourself taking care of the needs of others but never your own, ask yourself how much you value your time. If you never find time to satisfy your own needs, how can you truly value your own life? It is essential you take time out to relax, revitalise yourself and enjoy life!

Take Care Of You
Imagine if you ran on batteries and suddenly...

Do you ever:

  • Wonder when ‘things’ will get easier?
  • Crave for some time alone?
  • Wish your life came with a ‘pause’ button?
  • Feel it’s all getting a bit much?
  • Want to get away from it all?
  • Wish life could be simpler?

These thoughts and feelings are entirely normal and common to most mums. Is it really any wonder when we look at all the responsibilities we are carrying on our shoulders, making sure the family is okay and never considering our own needs? Sometimes, it really is okay to say, “Stop! I need some time out!”

Regardless of your role in life,...

Life as a single mum can be challenging and exhausting, especially around this time of year when all the shops are filled with heart-shaped balloons! Here are some top tips to help you improve your confidence and take control of your life and its direction.

It is often the case that mums feel like life is one long treadmill of chores, work and planning. We forget to enjoy many aspects of life such as finding time to spend with the family and taking much-needed time-out from the grindstone!

It is also true that mums don’t give themselves enough credit for the good work they do and the success they achieve in life. So here are a few typical events in life that call for the occasional ‘Time Out Treat’ (in no particular order):

  • Getting the housework done on the day you planned to do it. TREAT: a cup of tea and your favourite...
