Rules to be an Awesome Person...

Rules to be an Awesome Person...

I love a good list of rules and there is always something else to learn! Who doesn’t want to be a better person? Or be liked just a little bit more by others?

Steps to a Better You...

I had a friend recently confide in me that he was struggling quite a bit with overwhelm. He had a second health scare and asked me what more it would take before he would actually see the obvious signs and make a change to his life.

This is where I stepped in and gave him some suggestions that I’ve been using in my life to make improvements because I’ve been thinking about the same things.

Get Your Memory Back...

Get Your Memory Back...

I think most kids have a great knack for retaining information, even useless information, at a rapid rate. I was certainly the Memory Game champion of my family and still love to play. As I’ve gotten older I’ve accepted that my memory isn’t what it used to be and I depend on my 10 year old who has become my memory. Now I’m learning that this can change and we can get our memory back.

Self-Care is NOT Selfish...

I’m a mum. I know how easy it is to look after everyone else in your family and just keep going. One foot in front of the other and whoosh, the day is over. You collapse into bed and are fast asleep in seconds. You don’t know why you’re so tired and have no energy. You get overwhelmed so easily and find simple things so difficult. I always thought tomorrow I’ll start looking after myself, I can handle this. Then the wheels start to fall off.

How to Stop Worrying...

Well worrying is something we all need to do so we know we’re alive… Some handle it better than others and as I get older I’m more aware of my own worry state and how I actually have some control over it.

Healthy Snacks Fast...

As we are all running this race called life, I know I am always getting stopped in my tracks due to extreme hunger pains and no time to grab something. Or should I say, no time to grab something healthy. How can we get through this until our next meal?

Planning is the key if you can get in the routine and ensure you have snacks that are close and easy to grab.

You're Stronger Than You Think...

I really love our Fridge-to-go community – I get so much strength from you and really appreciate you. Thank you.

Last year, my family had a real challenge when I was diagnosed with early breast cancer. It felt as though it came from out of the blue and it made me STOP. Really stop.

Family Reading Time Just 10 Minutes a Day!

I’ve become a little obsessed with reading, really. When I was in primary school my sister and I were convinced we could read every book in the school library. I don’t think we came close, but it instilled a love of reading and learning in me. I want this to spill over into my family!

Life, Love and Balance...

We are simple creatures after all.

It breaks my heart to see children that are not very active, eating poor food choices and missing that beautiful glow of just being a rambunctious kid. That glow you get from climbing trees and digging in the dirt to China (well from Canada we dug to China through the glorious slugs – perhaps from Australia we can dig to Africa!). I think it all starts with us, parents and we need to change our mindset to teach and show our children!
