Let’s just say ….

You love your job

You enjoy every moment with your kids

You can’t bear to be away from your husband

And you want to spend all weekend washing clothes and ironing shirts.

Let’s just say.

Even in perfect-land, taking time out to reboot is really good for the soul.

And for the rest of us who aren’t living in that bubble, it’s even more important.

This week on High Five Friday, Lisa York talks about how to press the reset button and do a complete mummy reboot in just 24 hours.

Go Conquer Motherhood!

Feb 20, 2017

Do you feel under pressure to feed your children healthily when all they want are sweets and chocolate? Do you feel bewildered by food labels that appear to be healthy but you’re not quite sure?

In today’s episode of Mum-to-Mum Monday you’ll discover about a passion so strong, it became a life changer.

My guest today is SuperMum, Bel Smith.

Bel is a Health and Wellness coach and lives a life on the road with her husband, Israel, ten year old daughter and six year old son. Last year they made the giant leap of selling their home and investing in a big green bus named Kaley. Bel and her family made it their mission to spend two years touring Australia spreading the important message of eating well for a better life.

Bel is the creator of the Mad Food Science™ Programme where she teaches children, parents and teachers how to understand food labelling and make informed choices. She also created the 5 Minute Healthy Lunchbox System™ as a way to help reduce the stress for parents packing lunch boxes.

Having turned to nutrition to treat her husband’s diagnosis of depression, Bel quickly saw the affects the quality of nutrition were having on all members of her family. She learned that what you put in your body has a direct affect on your mood, emotions and overall wellness. Bel knows that knowledge of nutrition is a powerful tool to both mental and physical wellness and wanted to spread her message.

Today Bel shares her family’s incredible journey across the length and breath of Australia. And she encourages you to think, ‘What would Jamie [Oliver] do?’ not only when considering your food choices, but your life choices.

I’m delighted to have Bel on my show today as she’ll teach you how to transform your life through following your passion, standing for what you believe in, and the power of self belief.

Go Conquer Motherhood!

Feb 17, 2017

Aristotle said, “We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, therefore is not an act, but a habit.”

True words. But creating new habits isn’t easy for a rushed-off-your-feet mum.

But then, can you afford NOT to have daily rituals?

If mum of three busy boys aged 5, 3 and 6 months can find time to prime herself each morning for the day ahead, then so can you.

This week on High Five Friday, Michelle Dawson talks about the incredible power of a daily morning ritual to set you up for the day.

When you look in the mirror, what do you see? A confident, strong and empowered woman, or a tired and frazzled wreck?

In today’s episode of Mum-to-Mum Monday you’ll learn that, how you view yourself as a women and as a mother, is a strong reflection to your children upon which they base their own behaviours.

My guest today is SuperMum, Christine Watts.

Christine and her husband live in rural Victoria, Australia, and have three daughters in their twenties. She’s an experienced teacher who has taught all age groups, and was a founding member of a Steiner school.

Christine now works with children, parents and teachers to help children build confidence, have high self esteem, create physical awareness and develop emotional intelligence.

Christine believes that it’s not the words you say to your children that really matters, but who you reveal yourself to be. How you choose to behave, to act, and to express yourself as a mother, has a direct impact on your children because they follow the lead of your example.

Christine encourages you to use innovation, creativity and imagination as the basis for raising happy, healthy and confident children. By doing so, this empowers our little ones to be the greatest version of themselves and enables them to create a brilliant world for themselves.

Which means, of course, a brilliant world for you too.

I am excited to welcome Christine to my show today because she’ll introduce you to using your own values and core beliefs to model the behaviours you want your children to mirror.

Go Conquer Motherhood!

Feb 10, 2017

You’ve probably had moments where you hit rock bottom. I know I have.

You feel that if one more thing goes wrong, you’ll surely snap. And that’s all part of the job description when you’re a mum.

But who do you turn to?

Your husband. Your best friend. Your mum. Your sister.

Of course. They’re there to support you. But

A key person you can turn to, is you.

This week on High Five Friday, I talk about being your own best friend and your own greatest advocate.

Go Conquer Motherhood!

How do you know whether you’re being successful as a mum when there’s no measure? No pay rise, no promotion, no pat on the back.

In this episode of Mum-to-Mum Monday you’ll find out what success looks like in your role as a mum so you can go out and start to achieve it.

My guest today is SuperMum, Jody Moore.

Jody lives in Roseville, California with her husband and four children who are 14 months, 3, 9 and 10. Jody is a Speaker, Life Coach and Momologist. That’s right, a Momologist. She’s an expert on mums.

Through her work, Jody helps mums understand and define success and believes that happiness is a skill that can be taught. Once Jody figured out how to change her own reality to a much happier one, she couldn’t keep it to herself and went on to found the Bold New Mom community.

In her decade of experience bringing up children, Jody knew her role as a mum was the most important one. Yet, like a lot of mums, felt it was the one she was the least qualified to perform well. This led her to learn about how to be successful in the ‘job’, and to reprogram her mind to achieve it. She realised that negative emotion and disappointment can actually be used to serve us.

Jody will teach you that being successful will help shape other areas of your life. In doing so, you can relieve yourself of the pressure to always have to get it right; drop your innate desire to continually keep your children happy; and start to retain your own identity despite the relentless demands of motherhood.

I am delighted to have Jody on my show today as she’ll help you understand that success is measured by things within your control, and will hand you the tools you need to excel as a mum.

Being a mother is tough.

When you first start out, you’re thrown in at the deep end and left to deal with crying newborns, tantrum-ing toddlers and projectile vomit.

And that’s before breakfast.

Bless their dear little hearts.

The early years give us a plentiful supply of challenges. (Someone tell me it gets easier. Please.)

This week on High Five Friday, Libby Lennon shares with us her biggest challenge of the early years.

Want to know how to be happy, happy, happy?

Welcome to Mum-to-Mum Monday where you’re about to rediscover your happiness. Remember that? The smiling face you used to have that’s long-since been buried under piles of laundry and the demands of family life.

But today you’ll discover how to reconnect with your inner joy, even during the most challenging of times, while the little people in your world continue to keep you rushed off your feet.

My guest today is SuperMum, Olivia Horne.

Olivia is a Happiness Coach and lives in West London with her husband and two daughters who are 4 and almost 2. Her degree in Experimental Psychology from The University of Oxford, UK and vast experience in the Well-Being Industry was bought together after her less-than-magical first experience of motherhood.

It compelled her to help change the lives of other mothers so they don’t encounter the same negative experience of motherhood that she suffered.

Juggling young children, work, relationships and the demands of running a household is all in a days work for Olivia. But she has learned, and is able to teach you, that being in touch with your happiness is critical in moulding your day to day decisions. You’ll be better able to tap into your instincts, give yourself the freedom of choice and become more self-assured in your life as a parent.

As Olivia says, the expectations of motherhood can be very different from the reality, and this can very quickly erode your sense of identity, confidence and your capacity to care for yourself. But she will help you peel away your feelings of frustration, self-doubt, worry and guilt to reveal the happiness that’s been lurking beneath all along.

When you’re able to connect with your own internal happiness you can finally learn to slow down and smell the roses, live in the moment a little more, and be truthful with yourself. Your life then becomes more joyful and carefree as you muddle through motherhood.

I can’t wait to introduce Olivia to you today as she will help you to find your buried happiness and gently encourage it back to the surface.

Go Conquer Motherhood!

Jan 27, 2017

We all know that too much screen time isn’t good for our children. I’m talking video games, watching TV, using the computer or tapping away on a tablet.

Give them a device your children turn into tech-zombies. But boy, suddenly the house becomes an oasis of calm and quiet.

And you let out a huge sigh of relief.

Swiftly followed by an extra-large helping of mum-guilt that their tech usage has spiralled completely out of control.

But is all that screen gazing ever a good thing?

This week on High Five Friday, I talk about whether screen time is your friend or foe.

Go Conquer Motherhood!

Jan 19, 2017

In today’s episode of Mum-to-Mum Monday we’ll be talking about how to rediscover a new passion, power and purpose in your life to create meaningful success and a purposeful balance in your life.

My guest today is SuperMum, Sally Thibault.

Sally has three adult children, one of whom is autistic, and lives on the Gold Coast of Australia with her husband of 35 years to the day. Sally is a professional Keynote Speaker, the author of two books, and a certified Emotional Freedom Technique Practitioner. If that wasn’t enough, she’s also a Women’s Success Mentor and facilitates the Reclaim You programs.

With over 35 years experience in the Health and Wellness Industry, Sally has been featured extensively in Australian national and local media and is currently the Health and Wellness Expert on a Queensland national radio programme.

As the mother of adult children, Sally gives us her benefit of hindsight and perspective on raising children, and she shares with us how she overcame many of the obstacles of motherhood.

It wasn’t an easy journey, having three children, one with Aspergers Syndrome, as well as managing her career.

Over the years, Sally has learned about the true meaning of purpose, parenting and living in the present. She believes the patterns of the past hold the solutions to what you want in the future. Today Sally will help us make sense of those patterns in order to follow through with the intentions you have set, and create success in your life as a mum.

I’m so happy to have Sally on my show today. She has so much wisdom to share from a mum who’s been there in the trenches. She’s here to share the strength and positivity she gained from her experiences throughout her mothering years.

Taking a day off from your workplace is relatively straightforward.

You ask your boss, you get the thumbs up, and you’re free to shop, surf or slacken off.

But taking the day off from motherhood. Now, that’s a bit more tricky.

I know, I tried this week.

And failed.

This week on High Five Friday, I talk about the sure-fire way to make time for yourself in an overflowing life.

Go Conquer Motherhood!

Jan 15, 2017

In today’s episode of Mum-to-Mum Monday, you’ll learn how to ‘Risk Forward™’. Motherhood can be a time of great uncertainty and it’s hard to figure out the best way forward. You’re often left without direction as to the right path to choose. Turns out, that’s a good thing.

My guest today is Victoria Labalme.

Victoria, who has four adult step-children and lives with her husband in New York, is a Strategic Performance Coach and Performing Artist. She’s an accomplished keynote and TEDx speaker, and has been in professional show business for over two decades. Her impressive list of clients include corporate giants such as Starbucks, Microsoft and PayPal.

Although Victoria commonly helps elite entrepreneurs, best-selling authors and C-suite executives to communicate with confidence, authenticity and impact, her work can also be applied to mums. In fact, the concept of Risking Forward™ aligns perfectly with mums because it’s something you already do so naturally without even realising it.

Rather than feeling lost, Victoria teaches you that stepping forward, slightly off balance with your heart open can be a beneficial way to live your life. Uncertainty is actually a virtue, and we need to embrace it and find confidence in it.

I’m so excited to welcome Victoria to my podcast because she shows you that, as she says in her Risk Forward™ TEDx talk, “Periods of uncertainty, when a path or a project is not yet clear, are fertile and full of promise and that they are to be respected and honoured.”

Crying baby. Out of control toddlers. Noisy children.

And a husband who can’t sort it out.

Flippin’ useless.

So you swoop in, pick up the pieces and reclaim order.

While cursing him in your head.

But what if doing it yourself (minus stabbing virtual pins in him) turns out to be the best solution?

This week on High Five Friday, I challenge you to think about your impatient husband in a different light.
