Sara Bussandri is an Italian mum of 3 boys aged 9, 6, and 3 and lives in London, UK. Throughout her pregnancies and around maternity leave Sara continued her career as Business Analyst. But by 2016 the heavy pace of holding down a career, raising three boys and running a household took its toll. The stress and overwhelm of being on the hamster wheel of life made her feel like she was in survival mode and consequently felt unfulfilled in all areas of her life.

Things had to change, but it took a (literal) bang to her head to jolt her into making the difficult decision to take a break from her work. With a broken leg, she started a blog and carved out a new career as a freelance writer and soon-to-be author which gave her the freedom and flexibility to work around her children. She now writes passionately on her Mind Your Mamma blog as well as for various publications, including the Huffington Post UK about her journey on the path to self-awareness and self-discovery.

Her path to a better life was long, slow and painful, but ultimately successful. Today she shares her transformation from living on ‘auto-pilot’ to creating a more mindful and intentional life for herself and her family.

Kate Alexandra is a Sydney-based yoga and meditation teacher, the mum of two small children, and a passionate advocate of the importance of nurturing yourself.

Her self-care journey began soon after she entered motherhood and came as a result of caring for her very high needs baby. Severely lacking sleep and stressed to the max, she developed post-natal anxiety, severe insomnia and her mental health crumbled.

Seeing similar problems with others, Kate founded the Radical Self-Care Project which began life as a humble instagram ‘challenge’ back in December 2015. Today, she hosts her own podcast, has developed a 28-day E-Course, and most recently has launched the Radical Self Journal through a successful crowd funding project.

Kate assures you that self-care isn’t indulgent, or limited to simply treating yourself. By taking care of yourself you'll get to know yourself better and by making it part of your daily life, not only are you sending love inwards to yourself, you become more loving and caring to everyone around you. Your partner and kids will thank you for it.

In this episode you'll discover what Radical Self-Care means and why a 'one size fits all approach' doesn't work. You’ll learn about the 'Yoga of Parenthood' a mindset tool around the vitally important practices of surrender, sleep and self-compassion. We talk about how to be more intentional in doing the things that fill you up and you’ll leave with the ability to craft your own unique self-care practice.

Libby Want is the author of Monster Spray Mum, a story book that helps children who are scared of monsters. The book was brought about by her own son’s fears and inspired by his wonderful imagination.

And of course, behind every successful mother is a monster of a real-life story.

Libby spent years trying to conceive and eventually, after 4 years of emotionally exhausting IVF cycles had two boys, who are now 4 and 2.

She celebrated conceiving her children by eating, and with both pregnancies gained roughly 28kg which she subsequently shed, twice.

In this episode we talk about Libby’s journey including the power of community, particularly when it’s not a supportive one. And how to successfully follow your passion simply by just doing it.

When you see Lizzy Williamson’s broad, infectious smile beaming out at you from one of her exercise videos, it’s easy to think she’s got it all together. She has. But it wasn’t always that way.

When her daughters, now aged 11 and 9, we’re a baby and a toddler, life was very different. She suffered post partum depression, and things got so bad she wanted to harm her baby. The regular manta that whirled around and around in her head was, “I want to die”. As a woman who'd always been positive, upbeat and successful, this came as a shock. But for Lizzy, it was real. She reached a crossroads in her life, and had a choice. Fall into a dark pit or find a way out. She chose movement.

Lizzy clawed back a happier, healthier and more energised life through her Two Minute Moves - quick and simple exercises that you can easily integrate into your busy life. From her idillic home in Sydney's Northern Beaches, Lizzy, not only has her own life right back on track, but has made Two Minute Moves a national sensation. She's written a book, creates workout videos and has appeared on national TV.

You know you should be moving more, but sometimes that first step is the most difficult to take. Lizzy makes it simple. You can do her exercises anywhere, at no cost, and in a tiny pocket of time. No more excuses.

Today Lizzy shares her own inspiring true story and proves that you can bust stress, fight depression and reclaim your life. Two minutes at a time.

Self-care is a concept you hear flying around more and more these days. But as a busy time-poor mum already up to your eyes with to-dos, do you really want or need the extra burden of self care?

Today Suzy will demystify what self-care is and help you easily access it when you're feeling time and energy squeezed. You'll learn about the power of micro moments of nourishment and learn to break through the barrier of mummy guilt in order to take action.
