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.
1. Congratulate yourself for doing an amazing job under difficult circumstances. Children bring us endless pleasure but bringing them up alone can often be demanding and overwhelming. Acknowledging everything you do to ensure your child is happy and content should make you feel proud.
2. Ensure you are happy about your self-image. This...
Finding time to spend quality time with your partner is an essential part of any relationship. Understanding each other’s needs and sharing time alone together will strengthen your relationship. Empowering Mums offers you some great ways to find time to spend with your partner and offers tips to keep vital lines of communication open.
Make Time For Each Other
Life as a busy or working mum is very hectic. Between general chores, raising the children, running the household, looking after extended family members such as elderly parents and seeing friends, your partner can quite often be...
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):
1. Commit to your goal
Choose what you really want to achieve and believe that you can accomplish it.
2. Be realistic
The key is continued motivation. If you set the bar too high, you risk failing.
3. Write it down
A simple yet powerful technique that generates commitment and drive. Write your goal on a piece of paper and stick it where you’ll see it daily.
4. Make an action plan
Decide how to achieve your goal. Write down all the steps you aim to complete in order to conquer your ambition.
5. Be flexible
Not everything will go to plan. Don’t be too rigid else the first minor...
As Big Ben chimes in the New Year, many of us will be making resolutions in the hope they will change our lives for the better. So how can we make certain that such aspirations will be achievable and enable us to live life according to our own set of needs, desires and values?
Effective goal setting is the key. The first and often hardest step is to identify realistic goals that you believe will change your life for the better. A tip here is to consider all the life-long aspirations you have held but never pursued due to lack of time, self-confidence or both.

As the year draws to a close, many mums will be finding that their schedule is becoming more and more hectic. Does your ‘to-do’ list look a little something like this?
I would like to say a big thank you to all those ladies, and the odd gentlemen who felt a little left out, who came to visit Empowering Mums at the Cheshire Mind, Body and Spirit Fair at the Northwich Memorial Hall.

Are you one of the millions of 21st Century mums on the quest to become a Supermum? Are you so desperate to achieve this astounding status that you have absolutely no time to fulfil your own pleasures in life?
Let’s consider the concept of the ‘Supermum’. The title does sound very grand, aspirational and positive, doesn’t it?
