Not Enough Hours In The Day: Or is the answer simpler than that?

Monday, May 21st, 2018

Life balance is something that so many of us struggle with. Whether it’s juggling family and work priorities or our personal life with other responsibilities, on the see-saw of life, maintaining equilibrium remains as challenging as reaching the spiritual state of nirvana.

We may feel that a sense of balance is something that we will always struggle to hold on to, that in this day and age, with our commitments and responsibilities, achieving balance is a nice idea in theory but not very practical.

When you have a family, it can be incredibly difficult to maintain an active lifestyle. Something always seems to crop up and gets in the way of you and a Metafit class!

Winter Wellbeing

Friday, October 22nd, 2010

Recently, Empowering Mums has worked with many mums who are dreading the onset of the winter blues. As the nights draw in and temperatures dwindle, energy levels slump, which can leave you feeling low, rundown and uninspired. We understand how easily this can happen but rather than dwelling on the fact that the colder months are upon us, we would like to encourage all mums to keep themselves energised and invigorated by embracing a healthy lifestyle. Here are some of the ideas we have shared of late with our mums to help them look forward to the months ahead.

Get Out There!
Enjoying a long walk with family or friends is a great way to keep fit, reinvigorate you and catch up on life! Not only will your health and fitness levels benefit, but you will also get to spend quality time with loved ones whilst enjoying everything the countryside has to offer! If you’re a city dweller, you can still enjoy the outdoors by visiting your local parks, canal paths or trim trails. Wherever you choose to walk, ensure you keep up a brisk pace to maximise the opportunity to keep fit but, most of all, have fun! (more…)

Make ‘Me Time’ A Reality.

Monday, March 22nd, 2010

At Empowering Mums, we actively encourage our mums to take control of their lives and to take care of themselves. Here are some great tips to ensuring ‘me time’ becomes a reality in your life.

Value Yourself: Value Your Time
If you constantly find yourself taking care of the needs of others but never your own, ask yourself how much you value your time. If you never find time to satisfy your own needs, how can you truly value your own life? It is essential you take time out to relax, revitalise yourself and enjoy life!

Take Care Of You
Imagine if you ran on batteries and suddenly your power was drained. How would your family cope? Before you completely burn out, make sure you look after your own wellbeing. If you continue to neglect your own needs, you will become exhausted and resentful, leaving you and your family in an unhappy state. Taking care of yourself will enable you to become a more energetic and enthusiastic mum – a great gift for your children! (more…)
