I'm keeping this week's email short and sweet so you have plenty of time to do this fear journaling exercise.
If you’ve been reading my recent emails you’ve heard me talking about how important it is to acknowledge our fears. So, today I’m sharing with you a journaling exercise to help you to keep your fears in-check + ease anxiety you might be experiencing around them.
Once you’ve finished writing I highly recommend doing a medi...
How are you feeling about social distancing? Are you relieved to have some time off of work / work from home or do you miss the routine? Are you dreading spending more time with your kids? (it doesn’t make you a bad parent if you do!!) Are there any previous responsibilities you’re happy you’re released from?
I want you to know that whatever comes up for you as you’re reading these questions or thinking about what’s...
With all the fear, uncertainty and stress spreading around, COVID-19 has exposed our need to practice more PRESENCE.
Alongside doing the best you can to help contain the virus, taking safety measures, being informed and taking care of our health, this is an opportunity to watch your mind and practice managing it better.
As I was having my Friday morning coffee, I was thinking about the Serenity Prayer:
“Grand me the serenity to accept the things I canno...
Last week, on a beautiful sunny morning as I was having my morning coffee, I opened up my Instagram and there was a beautiful message waiting for me from of my past clients.
She shared –
“Naama... the moment I surrendered and left my fate in the hands of the universe .. and I mean absolutely surrender EVERYTHING started to happen!!! I got an amazing house, I got a pay rise, amongst so many other things ... it all started happening so fast I can hardly b...
Last week I shared a post on social media about our inner critic – I’ve got lots of responses from people who said they needed to hear this message / reminder. Because truth is, negative self-talk is something we all deal with on a daily basis. And while we can’t get rid of our inner critic, we all have the inner wisdom and power to manage it better, provided that we have the right tools, aka – what we do with those critical thoughts.
This might sound weird to you, considering the fact I’m sleep deprived (being a new mom), lately I’ve been struggling to sleep.
The combination of waking up at random hours (to feed Maya) with going back to work + other changes that have been going on in my life recently, have been keeping me awake at night. I either struggle to fall asleep or I struggle falling back to sleep after waking up for a night feed. My body is confused, and my mind is over-active....
What a decade... A truly transformative one for me!
My favourite part about reviewing and reflecting on the year and the decade behind me is thinking about my biggest challenges + lessons learned. Looking back, I’ve noticed how much has happened over a decade. How much I’ve changed, grew and evolved.
When I rewind to 2009/2010, I am met with a totally different version of myself.
In retrospective I can truly see how my hardships, struggles and challenges were...
It’s 9:00am on a Monday, Maya is napping and I’m enjoying my coffee while soaking up this beautiful morning sun. I’ve just sat down to write down my gratitude list and one of the first things that came up for me was my morning routine.
I’ve been mentioning my morning routine quite a lot lately, because truthfully since Maya was born it has become more important than ever. Whether it’s 15 min or 2 hours it’s my 'oxygen mask'.
Last week I wrote a post on social media about the challenges I’ve been experiencing around getting back to my regular post-pregnancy yoga practice and the mindset shift I had to make to make it work in this phase of my life.
I’ve got a lot of comments and messages on this post + questions about how to find balance between sleep and self-care with a busy life.
