I am a certified transformation and life coach who is passionate about helping women manage stress by empowering them to let go of limiting beliefs and negative emotions. Having worked in a highly stressful corporate environment for many years, and recently becoming a mamma, I really understand stress and how it can negatively impact all areas of your life.
So many people start off the new year with the hype of a fresh start, anticipation that this year will in some way be better than the last, so unless you have a really accurate crystal ball of some sort, I don’t think that any of us could have predicted exactly the way this year has unfolded so far.
With the majority of us still in some form of lockdown, which means something different for each of us depending on our circumstances, it has been an interesting, heart breaking time for humanity to say the least. If you were struggling prior to this lockdown with stress or burnout then this will definitely be heightened even further during this time, which is why I wanted to write this blog post to give you some hope.read more
Why is it that we find ourselves yelling obscenities at other drivers in the traffic while on our way to work, dreading another day of dealing with the politics in the office? Or on the occasional day, maybe once or twice a month you may find yourself crying in the bathroom at work? Or maybe you fell into a deep spiral of anger and depression after you single handedly worked evenings and weekends to make sure a certain project didn’t fall apart, then when the project ended up an amazing success, your name was nowhere to be seen on it… so you went home and hit the wine.

According to recent studies, we are more stressed now than we were just 5 years ago, however many of us still feel too scared to talk openly about this as they don’t want to appear weak or put a spotlight questioning their abilities in the workplace.

Goodness, we are already one month down into a new year and decade! January can seem like the longest month ever with trying to settle back into normality, all while having the hype of the new year going on around you. I think that is why February can often feel like the month when the year finally starts to move forward after we have had our time to reflect and decide on where we would like to move forward towards.
During January I put together a Challenge called the Living 2020 on Purpose Challenge which was to help women drown out the noise of the new year and really show up for themselves in a gentle, mindful way. If you still feel like the year has got off to a slow start then don’t worry, I have just the thing for you in this blog where I am going to explain a bit more about intention setting and the key areas in your life to concentrate on when setting intentions for yourself.read more
