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.

I love getting help and also how parents share and help each other too!

Recently I found more and more amazing online resources as I’ve been seeking out more tools in helping my husband and I parent. I’ve been thinking about what I hope to accomplish as a parent.

Family Reading Time Just 10 Minutes a Day!

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!

I Can't Jump on a Trampoline!

Ok, I’m speaking to women here and we’re talking Kegels.

Whether you’ve had children (big or small) or not, are in super fit shape or not, gravity starts to creep up as we get older and it’s a bitch! Our pelvic floor muscles start to tire fast and we seem to have no control of them whatsoever.

Planning for the Unknown is Smart...

My husband [oh no we’re not married, but it’s easier to call him that – boyfriend sounds hilarious! – for all intensive purposes, he IS my husband] and I have had a will for many years and have ensured it is general enough to stand the test of time and not require constant updating. I CANNOT believe how many people don’t have one and don’t want to talk about it. OMG people!

Spark Joy and Order Your Chaos

Spark Joy and Order Your Chaos

Life is fast and it’s hard to keep our homes, cars, offices and brains on track with clarity… I’ve found the best therapy is to chip away at finding some order in the chaos and you can even make a bit of extra $$!

I’m a thrower and I can’t really understand hoarders. The idea of hoarding makes me feel claustrophobic – that’s another story.

Old People Have Amazing Stories and Wisdom...

I’ve started to pay more attention to older people, they often go unnoticed. I want to make a difference in people's lives, be more aware and put my mobile away more often to be present to what’s happening around me.

How I Know if I'm in Flow...

I’m currently ‘in flow’.

I’m listening to my intuition and following all the signs that lead me around and things are smooth. It’s so much easier to be in flow than to fight against everything. I haven’t always been in flow.
