A life of health and wellness…with kids!

Practicing Equanimity

We were having a playdate with a friend (Kelly from Happy Whimsical Hearts) today and she asked if I was taking a break from blogging?

‘Well…sort of…I guess…..’ was my answer.

We have been having a stressful life these past few months and to be honest the blog has been the last thing on my mind.

Funny thing is though, in that time we have been doing a few things that would make great blog topics.  We have been doing a lot of work in the garden, I have been sewing a little again and we have generally been taking the time to reconnect a little as a family.

The tough time isn’t over just yet and may not be for a while, but perhaps I should try and connect here a little more.

I haven’t been doing all that much of connecting with the things that make me happy and keep me somewhat sane. I haven’t been meditating or doing yoga or practising  yogic/buddist philosophy thinking that reminds me all will be OK.

I have not been all that OK of late – my anxiety levels have been through the roof, every day has been a challenge to make it through and I put sooo much pressure on myself and am soo critical of everything that I do and say. The little voice in my head is LOUD! This has had overflow into my relationship with the kids, the way I do my job, my ability to stay focused and how I react to situations.  That should actually be overreact.

So I am going to start again on working with myself to practice all the things that help to keep me sane:

– time alone with myself

– mindfulness

– gentle pressure free exercise

– rhythm and routine

– having faith that it will all be OK – as it always is.

Wish me luck!

Through this blog I hope to inspire and motivate mums to raise happy and healthy kids and be happy in themselves in the most organic way possible. I write about wellness, attachment parenting, yoga and meditation, and whole food nutrition for both busy mums and families. I am a mam of two sweet boys, H Boy and Baby B. We live life with a healthy and natural approach to living and support breastfeeding, baby wearing, baby led solids, and an overall down to earth way of life. I hope you enjoy our world!

  1. The great balancing act of staying connected to all those things/people while keeping time for self……. Oh that I could get the balance right

  2. Hope you do manage some time to do things that you know will help center and balance you. And be kind to yourself, good luck x
