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...

How to look after yourself when you’re a sensitive and introverted soul.

As a classic introvert (and rather sensitive soul), I find the chaos and excessive busyness of modern life somewhat ridiculous – and perhaps you can relate. Trying to be truly well in a hyper-connected world, is no easy feat. Most of us are literally available – in some way – 24/7 (and deep down, we feel guilty when we’re not)....

Women and martyrdom (and why we need to stop).

Women have long since derived satisfaction from doing things for others. We feel pleased when we please others. We like to be selfless. But in the pursuit of making sure every single person is ok, we have to be very careful not to become stuck in the grips of martyrdom and resentment. Because, this happens very easily, and it takes...
