3 Steps to Self(less) Care

This idea of self care can feel pretty indulgent.

Dozens of women have quietly told me they feel guilty when taking time for themselves.

We live in a society that prides itself on wearing ‘busyness’ like a badge of honour and labelling 60 hour working weeks as the norm.

We rush through life with our endless to-do lists, overloading email inboxes and a constant FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out) attitude.…

Your Keys to a Powerful Day

There was a time, not so long ago, where I would awaken each morning and just allow my day to happen.

From the moment my alarm went off I would groan to myself ‘Oh I’m so tired’ and then I would proceed to  check my email inbox, social media notifications and WhatsApp messages all within minutes of opening my eyes. This was a surefire recipe for high anxiety levels and …
