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…)

Time For Change!

Monday, October 11th, 2010

Wow! How manic is your life right now? If it’s anything like mine this autumn, you are probably juggling a lot of balls and trying desperately not to drop any! Here are just some of the everyday goals many mums are trying to fulfil during this time of year:

  • School pick-ups
  • Shuttles to extra-curricular activities such as after school swimming clubs, football training or music lessons
  • Preparing healthy lunch boxes and cooking comforting evening meals
  • Washing and ironing school uniforms
  • Fulfilling work commitments
  • Visiting and keeping in touch with relatives
  • Trying to keep up with the lives of friends

Is it any wonder you are feeling worn out – and the kids have only been back at school for a month! As well as giving yourself a well deserved pat on the back, have you thought about all the things you could be doing for yourself right now, as well as the rest of your family and friends? (more…)
