The Power of One

Aug 30, 2020

 

The power of one concept was one that I created after eating way too many peanut M&Ms. Seriously.

You see, I am an over-indulger. I never know when to stop and always end up taking things too far - like the M&Ms. A couple turns into a handful and a handful turns into... well, you see where I'm going with this. 

The power of one helps me stay within my limits and set boundaries that I can achieve.

One serve of dinner. 

One glass of wine.

One M&M

But the power of one has magical powers beyond restraint. It also gives you the power of productivity and achievement.

In the home, I applied it to things like,

One load of laundry everyday

One hour of TV (so I can spend time on achieving other things)

How to Use Your Planner During Isolation

Apr 14, 2020

For so many of us, life has drastically changed over the past few weeks. We are suddenly home... a lot! And life isn't like anything we have experienced before.

In this episode I hope to inspire you get your planner out, dust it off and start using it to create a scaffold for your day. I'd also like to inspire you to work through tasks you've been wanting to do around the home for ages and also connect with yourself during this time.

How to Choose the Perfect Planner

Aug 25, 2017

A planner is an essential planning and organisational tool for anyone who wants to achieve more, improve their time management and reduce general overwhelm and stress in their lives.

You only need to walk into any department store or stationery store to be spoilt for choice when it comes to diaries and planners and it can be confusing to try and choose the perfect planner if you’re not quite sure what to look for or what you need.

Everyone is busy.

I hear people talk about being a ‘busy mum’ or a ‘busy working mum’ or a ‘busy stay-at-home mum’ but the actual fact is that everyone is busy.

Everyone has responsibilities, goals and actions that they need to complete and although some people seem to...

3 Daily Tasks We Should do to Feel in Control

Jul 22, 2017

We are busy people!

It doesn’t matter how organised we feel, we are still masters of the circus, juggling and trying to run the whole show externally as we run a second story internally, planning and preparing for everyone else. Tough gig. It's hard to feel in control when your mind is spinning!

At times it’s easy to fall down, forget about ourselves and fall into an exhausted heap at the end of everyday, knowing that we have to get up and do it all over again tomorrow. I sit here writing this in my PJs and feeling super unmotivated today. I know why. I know why I’m in this mood. It’s because I haven’t followed my own advice.

You see, you can’t gain control of the things around you simply by...
