Does your inner people pleaser run your life?

Does your inner ‘people pleaser’ run your life?

For all the women who constantly say yes when they really want to say no: I see you, I hear you, I feel you! I have always loved to please everybody. Since I was a tiny little girl, I have always known that the more I do for people, and the more I do what other people want of me;...

Stop over-filling your life plate

Stop over-filling your ‘life plate’.

Do you feel overwhelmed by how much you have going on in life? There is not a single woman I have worked with (and barely a woman that I know outside of my work) that doesn’t communicate to me that, most of the time, she feels like there is too much going on for her. And that this ‘too much...

Dear exhaustion

Dear Exhaustion, thank you for showing me the way back home (to myself).

(a love note to exhaustion) Dear Exhaustion, You are my greatest teacher. For most of my life, you were my constant companion, and I never knew why. I accepted you as ‘normal’. I thought that this feeling of utmost depletion and burnout was ‘just life’ … for all of us. I learnt that in order to function the way I...

Finding your own middle road to wellness and fulfilment

Finding your own middle road to wellness and fulfilment.

When it comes to your health and your life, do you feel like you’re drowning in a sea of noise? I used to. Everywhere I looked, I had a barrage of conflicting information being thrown at me, by every second person who claimed that they had ‘the answer’, ‘the path’, ‘the way’, ‘the pill’, ‘the diet’, ‘the truth’, ‘the secret’....

17 things I wish every woman knew

17 things I wish every woman knew.

Things I wish every woman knew. Over the past few years as I’ve inadvertently ended up working only with women (I’ve seen only TWO men in my career – I didn’t do this on purpose either!), there are certain things that I find myself desperately wanting these women to deeply know and understand. Here’s a list of some of them!...

Why 'pushing through' isn't the answer

Why ‘pushing through’ isn’t the answer.

When life feels busier than ever, it’s ridiculously easy to fall into the habit of ‘pushing through’. We push through illness, we push through our emotions, we push through events and jobs and responsibilities that aren’t authentic to us. Most commonly, doing what I do, I see people push through burnout and exhaustion. We seem to think, if I can...

Is people pleasing ruining your life?

Is people pleasing ruining your life?

For all of the burnout out, overwhelmed, people pleasing women: If you ever find yourself tiring of how people treat you, or what they expect of you; if you feel like you’re constantly pleasing everybody but yourself … I see you, I hear you, I feel you.  Lately in my life, I have been absolutely SLAMMED with the lesson of learning...

Sensitive

If you’ve ever been called ‘too sensitive and emotional’.

For much of my life, I was ashamed of my sensitive and introverted nature.  I was easily affected by things; I didn’t seem to be able to ‘cope’ with as much as other people around me could; I often felt a sense of sadness and disconnection in normal everyday situations; and I wore my heart 100% on my sleeve, unable...

Why you need to be ok with 'letting people down'

Why you need to be ok with ‘letting people down’.

Do you constantly bend yourself backwards in order to ‘not let anyone down’? Like many women, I spent most of my life as a rather chronic people pleaser. There were two things that used to majorly hold me back from wellness and soul fulfilment: 1. My fear of ‘letting people down’ 2. My fear of people ‘not liking me’ I...
