How Do You Organise Your Time Efficiently To Ensure You Enjoy Your Ideal Christmas!

Monday, December 11th, 2017

Christmas is fast approaching. A time of excitement for most, it can invoke a feeling of stress. The expectations we place on ourselves to have the ‘perfect’ Christmas, whether that is doing the cooking or trying to keep everyone happy. Whether we celebrate Christmas or not, it is the one day of the year everything pretty much grinds to a halt and forces us to slow down and gives us the opportunity to spend time with loved ones.

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.

Monday, December 12th, 2016

At the start of every year many people attempt to make good resolutions that will help them achieve specific, longed for goals. Yet as the year progresses, other aspects of life get in the way. Often we can blame our workload and the children’s ever increasing activities; things that are time driven and cannot simply be ignored or set aside for another time.

Learning To Believe In Yourself

Monday, November 14th, 2016

At one point or another in our lives, we all question whether or not we are good enough, capable enough, skilled enough, rich enough and successful enough! Sometimes these feelings can become overwhelming, which is when self-doubt really takes hold and begins to negatively impact on your actions and ability to enjoy a happy life. When this happens, it is easy to make decisions based on the influences of others, which can be equally damaging.

I refer to them as the 3 Cs and I can help you to successfully overcome them all, supporting you to achieve your dreams and so much more! This month, I am focusing on the first of the 3 Cs, which is courage. Being courageous is directly related to fear. One can easily over power the other and, through my proven techniques, I can help you ensure that courage triumphs every time! (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…)
