New Beginnings

wellbeing Apr 10, 2020

I am not religious and have never have been. Despite being an avid student of a Course in Miracles and having many personal practises that seem common amongst religions, such as gratitude and mediation or prayer, I have never really subscribed to a specific religion. I choose instead to follow my own path and trust the divinity within myself, inherent in all living beings. That said I have deep respect for all faiths and approaches that offer love as a way of living and the significance of the recent turn of world events in light of the Coronavirus lockdown is not lost on me, as we enter into the Easter weekend.  We are indeed at the beginning of a whole new world, as Carl Jung tells us, “Every transformation demands as its precondition "the ending of a world"-the collapse of an old philosophy of life.”
As we venture into a new way of being, I send you all of my love and I hope wholeheartedly that you take this necessary time with your family for reflection and to...

Tantrums and difficult behaviour

parenting Apr 09, 2020

Sometimes it’s easy to think your child is being difficult, or is trying to push your buttons. In fact nothing could be further from the truth. The thing is, your child’s behaviour has absolutely nothing to do with you and everything to do with their own internal world of thoughts and feelings. Their behaviour is merely an outward projection of their internal world.

The minute we judge we have lost any hope of connection and in doing so, any possibility of being able to help them.
Because judgment kills connection.
Dead.

Instead of thinking my child is being difficult, I invite you to bring your compassionate curiosity to what they may be experiencing and instead ask, why is my child having a difficult time?

Do they feel misunderstood? Are they tired, hungry or in need of more attention? Are they struggling to understand or process things that are happening around them?

Your empathy will help you connect. Help them. Strengthen your relationship and allow them to move through...

How lockdown will shape you

mental health wellbeing Apr 09, 2020

These experiences will shape you. They will show you resilience and courage you never knew existed. They will shape your child’s mind and their future. And the way that they view both themselves and the world. Tell them that this is an adventure, tell them that this is an opportunity. To see and do things differently. Because when you change the way you look at things, the things look at change. Yesterday somebody said to me that they wish things would go back to “normal” but frankly I can’t think of anything worse. Our planet was literally dying. Our consumerism was out of control. Mass food production as caused global issues, including forcing much food production into unsafe territory in many parts of the world and the consumption of animals has caused several dangerous viruses in the last few years. The lessons are there in black and white. It is time to pause. To rewrite a new ending. We hold an incredible opportunity to recreate our lives from scratch....

All by myself. Single parenting during lockdown

parenting wellbeing Apr 08, 2020

Ok, so I'm trying to make light of it, but quite frankly, there is no other way.  I have been working from home as a full time single parents for 3 and a half years now, so I feel completely adept at lockdown ... it's really just more of the same.  But the added pressure of homeschooling (or not) as the case may be could be enough to flip many parents over the edge.  Having implemented many strategies for survival over the years, I have to say that prioritising your own wellbeing at this difficult time is not jsut important, it's essential.  You cannot pour from an empty cup.   Dancing, meditation, yoga and whatever makes you happy has to be fitted around your day and the needs of any children.  I choose to get up at 5am to get what I need and go to bed with the kids - but that's me.  Trust me, it was a slug fight in the beginning, mornings have never been my forte, but I quickly saw the return ... in my patience levels, my ability to respond...

There are no rules in the current climate

wellbeing Apr 06, 2020
 

You hold the most incredible opportunity for a new way of life should you choose.  Find your flow, listen to your body.  Watch your children, they teach us so much.  Maybe it's time for a new way of being.  yes, there is fear, yes there may be pain.  But the beginning of a new way of being, must always start with the death of an old one.  Ultimately the only thing that we can expect is being constant in this time of change, is change.

How to stay mentally healthy when working from home with the kids.

parenting wellbeing Apr 01, 2020

In this video we talk about creating a buffer of time for yourself, an insurance policy if you will.  I share my insights on working full time from home and how to stay in alignment with your values and prioritising your own mental and emotional wellbeing as a parent. It is so important to make time for yoga, gratitude, journalling and making sure you can get your work done around the children during lockdown.

Home schooling in a global pandemic

parenting Mar 30, 2020

In this video, I talk with JoJo Ebisujuma, Life Hacks Mum, where we talk homeschooling during the lockdown and how to balance life and work with the kids at home.  The gold for me is understanding that kids need a period of de-schooling to find their flow and how it will take them time to find their flow.
