Clear Your Mind: Prioritise And Give Yourself Permission To Let Go!

Monday, February 26th, 2018

The world can sometimes be a place of organised chaos, which can make us feel out of control at times. The good news however, is that we all have the power to be in control of ourselves. We don’t have to act in a reactive way if we are proactive in deciding how we will deal with situations before they arise. On a day-to-day basis, this helps us operate with a clear mind as we have clearly laid out priorities and can let go of the things that are holding us back and replace them with the things that will help us move forward in a the direction of our choosing.

Clear Your Space: Chaos or Calm, Which Saves The Most Time?

Monday, February 19th, 2018

Time; It’s one thing we never seem to have enough of, especially whilst we juggle the priorities of family, work, housework, relationships and self care. Often, it’s difficult to know the best way to make use of the time we do have, flitting between racing through our to-do list at a hundred miles an hour or slowing down to just breathe – still worrying about the million and one things we should be doing. What’s for the best? Embracing the chaos or spend all of our time getting things in order?

Happy New Year!

Today is a special day for numerous reasons, the start of a new year, a chance to start with a clean slate and Empower, our monthly newsletter has been published for the 100th time. Today our 100th Anniversary edition was sent out and we thought a celebration was called for. When this journey started, the newsletter was sent out quarterly but has been of benefit to our Empower community of mums and mumpreneurs for nine years, providing advice, inspiration and support helping them overcome the daily challenges mums face.

For all the advice and support we have shared over the years the biggest testimony to us reaching this milestone is you! We couldn’t have done it without your support, engagement or feedback over the past nine years.

Your Time: Create A Life You Love!

Monday, August 28th, 2017

The theme for August has been one of simplicity. In my last blog I talked about the importance of ditching ‘Mummy Guilt’; something most of us feel at some point in our parenting journey. Today I want to talk about making time for yourself to create a life you love. When we aren’t wracked by guilt, worrying about what we’re doing wrong, it’s far easier to credit ourselves for what you are doing well.

Holiday Dreams Can Come True!

Monday, September 26th, 2016

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. (more…)

Be Different. Make A Change.

Monday, September 12th, 2016

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. (more…)

Eliminate Time Wasters!

Monday, August 8th, 2016

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 stressed, anxious and life suddenly feels out of control. (more…)

Monday, November 9th, 2015

The preparations for Christmas coupled with additional social events and late nights can leave mums feeling worn out.
