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.

Tips for staying sane, from a full time mum of two who works from home. Turn off the news, your environment is everything. Focus on your own wellbeing, it will affect everything else. Dance!

Stop deciding everything for your children

connection parenting Feb 17, 2020

Music is a universal language

music parenting Feb 10, 2020

Music. The only language that needs no translation. It crosses race, sex, geography and more often than not carries the message of emotions.

It fuels nostalgia, memories and can even conjure up smells. Just one bar of a song and we can be transported in our minds...and we remember ALL the words.

That’s because the brain loves patterns. It loves rhymes and rhythms...and if you put a tune to it, you’re singing it all day right? Sometimes whether you want to or not .

What a wonderful vehicle then to teach our children. From picking up their pants  (free workshop in the link)  to much deeper and more intentional messages, the language of music goes and stays in, like simply nothing else can  to much deeper and more intentional messages, the language of music goes and stays in, like simply nothing else can.

And that's because the brain loves patterns. It loves chinking things up into rhymes and rhythms. But if you add in fun and make it a shared activity...
