Why I'm so interested in Self-Care

Why I'm so interested in Self-Care
The awareness around self-care is something I focus on a lot.  
One of the reasons is that some women feel that self-care is being able to go to the toilet without a child coming with them.  Yes, I heard someone say that once. 

Whilst that can be seen by those of us who are mums as a 'luxury' (think about my bath mentioned above), it isn't self-care time. In my book I give you a lot of ideas for self-care, however, today I simply want you to embrace even the most basic to see that you can fit something into your day, even if you are reading this in your lunch break!

Who are you?

Have you ever had a moment where you have suddenly questioned who you are?Why are you here?

My Story

Real, raw, and often asked about…..here is a short version of my story….

A few years ago I was asked by Pete Evans, an internationally renowned chef, restauranteur, author, and television presenter, for my story so he could feature it on his Facebook page. Initially, I was shocked and questioned him saying no-one would really be interested. He said it would help others, and so I agreed.

Lucky Pete is a patient man because what happened next was procrastination, excuses, and general avoidance of writing it down. When I eventually did, I found myself becoming physically ill while writing it over the next couple of weeks. My body was reacting to reliving it again.
