Throughout September, I have been focusing on the dreams and aspirations mums visualise during the calm of a family break. Often these thoughts for the future end up by the wayside when ‘normality’ resumes. Yet you can change this and create a new reality for you and your family that reflects the lifestyle you truly want and deserve.

To do so, you can start by taking your ‘dream’ and turn it into a ‘goal’. A simple change of mind-set is incredibly powerful and can change your life! With a goal, you can create a plan of action and begin to enjoy the...

The summer holiday can be tricky for mums, with the typical challenge of balancing work and childcare consuming much of your time! Yet the family holiday can offer sporadic moments of calm during which you can truly reflect on your lifestyle and consider whether it is what you want for you and your family. The trouble comes when you return to your normal routine and get little time to continue exploring ways to create a happier, more fulfilled life.

With a bit of careful consideration and planning, you can achieve those holiday dreams. It’s about taking action! In order to achieve...

If you’re struggling to keep everything on the right track, you can regain control of your life by deciding what you need to do each day. By creating a schedule to follow, you can ensure your time is well spent doing things that give you a sense of satisfaction and wellbeing.

When you truly reflect on your day, which tasks do you resent most that stole your much-valued time? Was it the latest Carpool Karaoke clip from James Corden, which to be fair was very funny, or could it have been the meeting you travelled twenty minutes to attend only to find it cancelled at last minute? One of these distractions and time wasters could have definitely been avoided! We should all be able to enjoy our lives and comical YouTube clips certainly make us laugh. However, when these persistent time wasters encroach on your ability to manage your time effectively, you can become...

We all have values. They are our fundamental beliefs and the rules we live by in our daily lives. In my last blog, I encouraged you to recognise and prioritise your values and what they mean to you. Now it’s time to look at how you can use these values to help you make better choices and decisions.

Live By Your Beliefs
By now, having identified your values, you will now have begun to understand more about them, what they mean to you and how they impact in all sorts of ways on your life. You will live your most fulfilled and happiest life when you are living congruently with your...

Being able to define your core personal values is important, as they go a long way to making up who you are and what you believe to be right. Knowing your values and your true worth can help to build your self-belief and confidence. Even if in your mind you know you’re a confident and strong person, other people must see it as well to be aware of it. Identifying your core values and playing to your strengths will help you deal with whatever life throws at you in your family life and elsewhere.

Your personal core values are the principals, beliefs and attitudes that guide and reinforce...

Self-belief is a powerful thing. If you can instil self-belief in yourself and base your actions on your personal values, your life will become more fulfilled and happier. A more confident you will be able to take on more challenges, step outside your comfort zone, experience new and exciting opportunities, and embrace life. You and your family will benefit from having a more self-assured mum. If this sounds great, what’s stopping you from believing in yourself and your capabilities without fear or worry?

To overcome a lack of confidence and feelings of vulnerability, focus on...

Your comfort zone may feel like a safe haven but for all its security, it is limiting you. Identifying the parameters of your comfort zone will help you push the boundaries so you can explore new opportunities that could create a more fulfilled and happier life for you and your family. Only by stepping out of your comfort zone can you begin to believe in your true potential.

Nice And Safe
Everyone feels vulnerable outside of their comfort zone. The old familiar ways seem best because you want everything to be stable, normal and safe. Yet this may mean life has become dull and average,...

Knowing your self-worth is priceless. How you see yourself when you look in the mirror is a true reflection of who you are. You want to see a confident, capable person, ready to face the world and tackle anything and everything that’s thrown at you. But does anyone see that when they look in the mirror? And if they do, are they kidding themselves?

Your True Worth
To maintain and nurture your own health and wellbeing, you need to acknowledge your true worth. Introduce quality self-care and time-out for you into your weekly routine. Identify the areas on which you would like to spend...

Self-care by definition is all about you. It’s not selfish to put yourself first. In fact, in some scenarios, it provides a positive advantage. Think about the many ways you endlessly prioritise your children ahead of you and forget about your own needs in the bargain. It may have become second nature to ignore your own needs, but remember: you skip on your self-care at your peril.

Seconds Out
We all know how important your children are and that you would do anything for them. Yet all too often their needs and their place in your life far outweighs the time you allot to yourself....
