Are you ready to get back to being you?
Women are depleted these days, stretched thin in so many different directions that illness, exhaustion, anxiety and depression are the new ‘normal’. You need to gift your life some restorative time. This means you need to allow yourself adequate time to unwind and unravel. So that you can “reconnect with your empowered self” and get on the road to living with more ease and happiness in your daily life.
My life can be very chaotic – two teenagers, three primary school children, my business, husband and extremely high expectations of myself. Sometimes I flow easily with it and sometimes it drains me.

The baby juggling act is perhaps like nothing you’ve ever experienced before.
It can be like trying to hold an infinite number of balls in the air while trying to continue with some sort of ‘normality’. By the end of the day you can be left feeling exhausted and like you haven’t achieved anything at all. Many of us have these days and they seem to run into each other. You can feel frustrated with ‘trying’ to get things done.
Do you feel like locking yourself in the toilet to get some space from family, work, and life?
We’ve all been there. In this article, I’m going to share with you a secret for tired busy women.
One of the greatest life hacks that I have discovered is what’s commonly known as “legs up the wall” yoga pose (Viparita Karani). As far as recuperation goes, this posture does so much for women.. If time is of the essence, this is the number one thing I recommend for tired, busy women!
It’s nice to get your Zen on every now and again – but how the hell do you keep it on?
You’ve no-doubt experienced glimpses of your Zen-state. Those moments when you feel blissful and at ease in the sun or enjoying an ocean view or simply barefoot in the grass. We need these experiences to help us unwind and reconnect with ourselves.
