Overcoming Hurdles | 10K

After about a year of saying "I would love to run a 10K", I have finally done the steps to do just that. Last week I signed up to my first 10K and embarked on my first week of training and boy, I'm feeling good. I'm not in the best shape. I'm two stone heavier than I'd like to be. I'm very much lacking in that area of fitness but I'm feeling good. Mindset is everything.

Calm Bedtimes

Creating a calm bedtime is something all parents strive for. Stress-free, beautiful moments after a busy day of parenting. Relaxing baths, bedtime stories, sounds blissful, right? On the odd occasion that we get a calm and stress-free bedtime, I feel like I'm superwoman. Like I have won at parenting and nothing can stop me. It's safe to say these moments are rare. In fact this evening I've spent an hour wrestling Henry B and it was far from calm. Well, up until the moment he gave in and let himself slip into the land of nod. 

Sometimes social media can paint a pretty picture of how bedtime can look, but we all know what the realities of bedtime can be. Those images of children tucked up in their Pinterest style rooms, with mums wearing that way too perfect messy bun. I always get suckered into those images, thinking "yes, tonight, this will be me. I will be the Pinterest/Instergramable mum".

Acceptance | Anxiety

Anxiety, no one is free from it. Anxiety is a feeling of uneasiness such as worry or fear, no one has the luxury of living life anxiety free I'm afraid.  This is something I'm slowly beginning to understand, I will not beat anxiety. It will always be there at varying levels and it's time I began to accept this.

Way's to make your room a Sanctuary

The master bedroom should be a space that couples (or indeed a single person) should function as a sanctuary. I place to escape the day's stresses and ultimately the kids! Whatever the size of your room it should evoke that instant hygge feeling, one that makes you go "ahhh".

Summer Ready Garden

The thought of home grown fruit and veg has recently grabbed my interest. I don't know if it's because I've become a vegetarian and I'm now thinking more about where my food is coming from, or whether I'm taking more pleasure being in my garden. In all honesty, I'm no gardener. In fact, I have very little skill or knowledge - but I would like to learn.

Hygge Dining

Creating a hygge home is something that I really feel is vital for me on my path to being a happier and healthy me. Hygge is something that isn't just some cool new hip trend, it's something that really clicked with me and really fits with my whole mindset. Having a home that creates the feeling of well-being brought about through warmth, cosiness, sanctuary and belonging and for many, the kitchen being the heart of the home is the perfect place to put hygge into a home.
