Are you tired of being over-needed?

Are you tired of being over-needed?

/ Over-committed ⠀ / Over-needed⠀ / Over-available ⠀ ⠀ / Under-slept⠀ / Under-rested ⠀ / Under-nourished ⠀ ⠀ ^^^^ the state of so, so many modern women. Can you relate?? Every woman I work with tells me this is how she is feeling. I watch women in my personal life feel like this. I even feel like this a good...

Allow your rock bottom moments to transform you

Allow your rock bottom moments to transform you.

I’ve had my fair share of rock bottom moments over the years, and I know that you have, too.  Everyone has! The ones that (literally) bring you to your knees, that make you feel as though your spirit is shattered in a million pieces. If there is one thing I honour so much about each and every person I come...

Boundaries

Boundaries: how I learnt my lessons and finally honoured mine.

Sacred boundaries … do you have them, and do you honour them?  Do you often find yourself feeling resentful when you look at your schedule, and it occurs to you that: a) you’re either doing way too much in general, or, b) you’re committed to things you never wanted to be doing in the first place? Or, do you feel...

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’....

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...
