The Busy Mum’s Survival Guide | Part One | Decide where you are right now

It’s easy to think ‘there’s nothing really wrong’ and to plod on regardless, managing any annoying health symptoms that come along. In truth, things could be so much better. The first step is to really really get present to how many symptoms you are experiencing on a regular basis to understand the degree to which your health is under pressure. Write down what’s not working for you. What you would like to be different. Why not take a  moment to review you health using the Health and Energy Questionnaire which you can access HERE.

So, how did you do?

I’m guessing that what came up for you is a very similar scenario for most busy mums: low energy, cravings, mid-afternoon slump, poor sleep and too much caffeine.

The purpose of this series is to help you get clear on the most pressing issues and take action to improve one area of your health. As soon as something shifts, there is the promise of more and more positive change. As we move through this series it may be that you choose to work on improving the way you eat or you might decide to work on a specific area like meal planning, sleep or stress reduction in the knowledge that, if you could just fix one thing, everything else would fall into line. All of this is much easier with the help of a coach – just saying – and you know where I am if you need me.

Even taking action in one of these areas may be enough to stop the downhill spiral and make a real difference to your energy levels and how much you actually enjoy being a mum!


In part 2, we talk about making you, yes YOU a priority so stay tuned…
