When I hear the words Occupational Therapist, I think of someone who helps you recover from injury through a rehabilitation program. It never occurred to me that they could help mums in any other way. But I learned that because Occupational Therapists specialise in seeing the human body as a “whole”, they can help you achieve optimal health and wellbeing which allows you to live your best life.

Mum of two, Sarah Hausler is the owner of Bloom Wellbeing and has been an Occupational Therapist for 16 years in Adelaide, Australia. Through her work, and in her personal life, Sarah's seen first hand the impact that pregnancy, childbirth and parenting has on the emotional and physical wellbeing of mums. Since becoming a mum herself, she now focuses on helping mothers to participate in meaningful activities to support a holistic approach to wellness.

In this episode we delve deeper into how Occupational Therapy can support mums. We discuss a whole range of issues including the emotional impact of sleep deprivation, and what to do when you experience a change in life priorities. We also talk about difficult topics like how to recover emotionally following a distressing or traumatic childbirth experience and the challenges of raising a child with an illness or developmental disorder.

This was an eye-opening conversation for me which has broadened my knowledge of the world of Occupational Therapy.

Being mindful in your day-to-day life as a busy mum can be tricky. You understand, abstractly, how beneficial it is, but taking that final step to put it into action can be a struggle. I get it. I find it incredibly difficult amongst the noise of our home, the busyness of getting through each day, and the wall to wall chores than never subside, to find space to be mindful.

That's why I enjoyed my conversation with mindfulness teacher Michelle Gale, the author of the brand new book, “Mindful Parenting in a Messy World” and host of a podcast of the same name. Why? Because Michelle brings mindfulness right into your own kitchen while hurriedly serving up dinner and shouting through the house that you'll be there to wipe his bottom just as soon as you've saved the sausages from burning.

Michelle brings the message that life is messy. But it's right in the midst of this messiness that you'll find your greatest potential for growth and transformation. In a practical and down-to-earth way, Michelle teaches you that the act of parenting really begins with parenting yourselves by being in tune with what is happening, right here, right now.

Today Michelle will help you through the rough spots so you'll react less, connect more and feel at ease, so you can wholeheartedly embrace your messy life.

Having a teenager in the house can be a challenge to say the least. It's so frustrating watching your teen make poor choices and roll their eyes at your suggestions. The battles to get them to make better choices get constantly ignored, disrupts the balance of your home and jeopardises your relationship with your child.
 
 
Enter Claire Ketchum. She has two teenagers of her own and has devoted most of her life to living and working with teens. Through her work, Claire knows that teens are far more likely to listen to a teacher, coach or friend, rather than their parent. Therefore, Claire bridges that gap in her work as a Stress Less Coach for Teens and her vast experience has given her a deep understanding of how to motivate teens.

In this episode, Claire will show you how she helps teens see and value their strengths and to be open to support in areas where they struggle. You'll find out how she gets them out of the chronic stress loop for good, so they can create healthy habits, manage expectations better, experience more success and remain happy and healthy in school and beyond.

By following her strategies, you'll discover a way to encourage your teen to create health habits in a way that makes your teen feel supported rather than judged. This will help you have a more harmonious home and get your relationship with your teen back on the right path.

Your hopes, dreams and priorities change once you have children. Your career, that once offered personal validation before becoming a mum, no longer cuts it now children are on the scene. So how do you figure out exactly what you want from life, and more importantly, how can you make it a reality?

Actor, writer, speaker and coach, Nicky Raby will help you do just that with some careful planning and down-to-earth advice. In this episode, Nicky talks about how life has changed since having her 21 month old son, and how she juggles the unpredictable world of acting around motherhood.

It’s clear that Nicky's grabbing life by the horns, and as a professional coach she helps other mums navigate similar changes. While it’s great that there are loads of self-development options available, Nicky takes the practical view that you can’t meditate for half a day and send off a couple of emails. Instead, she offers practical advice and suggestions to help you to find your own space, on your own terms.

Today Nicky will open you up to the possibility of  'and' rather than being closed off by 'but'. It shouldn’t be ‘successful but single’, and it shouldn’t be ‘creative but poor’. You can have both ‘creative and successful’. And it's OK to blend together your multiple passions to create a career and life that works for you. Why let yourself be limited by the expectations of others when you can fly, just like Nicky.

Imagine leaving your home in the morning and returning to find out that your 9 year old son had experimented with fire and blown up your house.

The house is burnt out. Your son is fighting for his life in hospital covered in burns on 100% of his body. And you have four other children to care for.

That 9 year old boy was John O’Leary. John is now a husband, father of four; three boys and a girl. He's the #1 bestselling author of the book ON FIRE and a highly sought inspirational speaker.

In this incredible story, John - in my first dad-only episode - talks about how he and his family pulled through this unthinkable tragedy. The strength of character, resilience and determination of his mother. And how this life altering event changed John's world in such a positive way, he has dedicated his life helping others overcome their challenges and live inspired lives.

Through his story, John will "liberate you from excuses, destructive cynicism, limiting beliefs, broken relationships, and lousy results" because like he says, " you can’t always choose the path you walk in life, but you can always choose the manner in which you walk."
