If I told you to get back into your lighthouse, you’d probably think I was being rude. But what if that’s the best place for you?

Using a lighthouse as a metaphor, Life Coach Victoria Kate explains why coming out of your lighthouse doesn’t help anyone.

Not yourself. Not your children. Not your family or your friends. Nope. The best place for you is back inside.

Because that’s where you serve everyone best.

This week on High Five Friday, Victoria and I tell you about the importance of staying strong and shining your light brightly. For everyones sake.

Go Conquer Motherhood!

Mar 27, 2017
When you set out on your parenting journey you never planned on being a ‘Hot Mess’. However, there are days when that’s how you end up. I know. I’ve had those days too. But the great news is, it’s possible to change that. Tell me what you’d rather be. A Hot Mess or a Mindful Mum?

In today’s episode of Mum-to-Mum Monday we’ll be discussing how you can shift your experience as a mum by changing the way you deal with all that life throws at you. And it’s done through the use of mindfulness and meditation.

My guest today is SuperMum, Ali Katz.

Ali’s a mindfulness coach, meditation teacher, author, wife and mum to two boys aged 11 and 9. She loves sharing her passion for living a balanced life with others, and has been featured on MindBodyGreen, Style magazine, Fox 26 News, HerFuture, Houston Family magazine, and LiveMom.com. When not meditating, writing, teaching, or spending time with her family in Houston, Texas, Ali enjoys running, practicing yoga, and sipping tea.

Ali’s mission is to inspire mothers to leave overwhelm, stress and guilt behind and embrace a life of balance, presence and joy. What I love about what Ali has to share is that she keeps it real. She’s a busy mum herself, so she gets that you don’t have spare time to head off to a mountain top to sit cross-legged saying omm’s.

Instead she brings mindfulness and meditation right back into your crazy life, and teaches you how to stay calm and balanced even when you’re scraping dried on Weetabix off the carpet. Again.

I’m delighted to welcome Ali to my show as she’ll walk you through the reasons why meditation and mindfulness are so important in your every day life. And she’s here to help you see the importance of taking time to make sure you really are your very best self.

Go Conquer Motherhood!
Mar 24, 2017

Have you ever been on your dream holiday but felt tired and irritable while you were there?

Are you wearing those beautiful shoes that you’ve been longing for, but still have an empty feeling in the pit of your stomach?

Have you finally got the promotion that you’ve been working long and hard for, only to be sat at your desk feeling unfulfilled?

And you ask yourself, “Why can’t I just be happy?”

Well, perhaps it’s because you’ve fallen into the trap of associating happiness with something tangible. If so, it’s time to have a rethink.

This week on High Five Friday, I explore 3 alternative secrets to enduring happiness that you might not have thought of.

Go Conquer Motherhood!

Having a successful career takes energy, drive and determination. Long hours, a heavy work load and the pressure to say yes to everything can be overwhelming. But when you become a parent and throw children into the mix, combining work and parenthood can start to really swamp you. But you don’t want to give either up.

In today’s episode of Mum-to-Mum Monday you’ll discover a way through that fog. Because it’s possible to be committed, not only to your family, but to keeping your career alive.

My guest today is SuperMum, Sarah Argenal.

Sarah and her husband, Joey live in San Diego, California. They have a 3 year old boy Beckett, and are expecting their second son in June. After becoming a mum, Sarah found the demands of working in Corporate Litigation alongside juggling family life to be exhausting and overwhelming. So she started a futile quest for help and information. But there was nothing out there.

She knew that something had to change, if not only for herself, but for the many other corporate parents who wanted to keep a firm foothold in both worlds. After hundreds of hours of research, Sarah created her own support system and founded the Working Parent Resource.

Sarah offers her community of like-minded working mums and dads reliable information and practical training to help them successfully manage their career and home life. Her Frazzled to Balanced™ Bootcamp “helps ambitious working parents slow down and reclaim their time so they can focus on what matters most.”

Today Sarah shares her journey of navigating her corporate career; keeping her relationships alive and her home life happy; and being the best mum she can possibly be. All whilst helping other parents figure out how to have it all too.

I’m delighted to have Sarah on my show today as she’ll teach you how to manage your time, conserve your energy; take time out to recharge and focus on you; AND achieve a happy balance between home and work.

The decisions we make shape our destiny.

Powerful statement, I know. But it’s true.

Whether good or bad, and whether you like it or not, the decisions you make have a massive influence over the way our life turns out.

But even knowing that, why do some people continue to make poor decisions day in, day out? Surely they just need a bit more self control.

Or do they?

This week on High Five Friday, Michelle Dawson explores why we make the decisions we do, and how we can get better outcomes without relying on self control.

It will comfort you to know, that having a PhD in Child Development doesn’t necessarily mean you feel like an expert when it comes to raising your own children. The decisions and choices you make for your children are just as tough, with or without prior knowledge.

In today’s episode of Mum-to-Mum Monday we’ll be discussing what it’s like for an English woman to raise children in America; how traditional roles can be turned on their heads; and how a career researching child development can influence parenting techniques.

My guest today is SuperMum, Lekki Frazier-Wood.

Originally from London, Lekki started her career as a Social Scientist specialising in child development, and has spent 8 years living in Alabama and Texas. English-born Lekki now lives in Houston with her American husband Wes, 4 year old son and daughter of 15 months. She’s a Professor of Paediatrics, studying childhood nutrition at the Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas.

Before meeting her husband, it never crossed Lekki’s mind that she would marry an American or have children anywhere other than England. And having kids in a foreign land has challenged her thinking about the norms of the Southern ‘Bible Belt’ and now views parenting practises from a fresh perspective.

Lekki offers us a glimpse into her professional and personal world, including insights into her academic study of childhood nutrition, as well as her personal views on feeling confident whilst navigating the parenting maze.

I’m excited to welcome Lekki to my show today where she will assure you that no matter what your style of parenting, loving your children means you’re already doing an amazing job.

Has a random stranger ever come up to you and told you off about what you’re doing (or not doing) with your child?

There’s nothing I find more irritating.

Stranger: “Excuse me dear, it’s a very cold day. Don’t you think he should have his socks on”.

You: “You don’t say. That’s why I’ve put them back on 15 times already and finally gave up about a minute before you arrived” (said in thought bubble).

It’s happened to me just a few times in my 7 years as a parent, but boy, do I remember it.

Why?

Because it’s annoying. And it feels like a hurtful criticism when I’m trying my best.

Does the stranger remember it?

No. Of course not.

Because to them it’s just a fly-away comment.

This week on High Five Friday, I rant about what I’d say to that random stranger, if I had the nerve.

It’s easy to limit yourself to something short of your true potential. That’s because as mums, we have a huge amount of pressure with everything else that life throws at us. But although we have to fight longer and harder, that shouldn’t stop us achieving the things we want.

In today’s episode of Mum-to-Mum Monday we’ll be discussing our individual glass ceilings, the importance of speaking to ourselves with love, and what the heck Theta Healing is.

My guest today is SuperMum, Joss Hobson.

Joss, who lives in New Zealand with her two teenage children, trained as a Clinical Psychologist. However, she didn’t feel her work took her to the deepest parts of human thoughts and behaviour that she craved. But when she stumbled upon Theta Healing, she found it to be the building block to connecting the body, brain and soul.

Joss became a Theta Healing Practitioner and soon had a year-long waiting list of clients. This incredible demand helped her realise that her time would be much better spent teaching and mentoring Theta Healing practitioners so she should spread the message more widely.

She now works with people, helping them reach the deepest roots of who they are, and releasing blocks so they can lead present, fulfilling lives. And she will do the same for you today.

I am excited to welcome Joss to my show today where she will tell us her thoughts on raising children, help us to ask ‘Where is the love in that?’ and help us eradicate our limiting beliefs.

Go Conquer Motherhood!

Mar 3, 2017

Motherhood, as you know, is a hugely transitional time. And in the fog of raising kids, it’s possible to completely loose the sense of who you are in all of this.

But exhale, because research shows that this is completely normal. And it’s OK. Because it’s all part of an evolving process.

You won’t feel lost forever.

This week on High Five Friday, I ask mum of two Lauren Wills, who is a PhD candidate studying the well-being of pre-school mothers, to explain how and why our identity changes when we become a mum.
