How to return to activity post Covid-19

How to return to activity post Covid-19

In life, take small steps to get moving in the right direction. The thing is to not stop, no matter how slow it may feel.

Our lives are shaped by a pandemic in more ways than we could ever have imagined. So, what does recovery and return to activity look like post-Covid? Seriously, what does that even look like? My husband, Neil, and I had Covid over December 2020 and into the new year, and now Neil has it for the second time! This virus is unpredictable, and it got me thinking…what does a healthy return to activity look like?

Don’t panic, you can conquer fear and Covid-19

Don’t panic, you can conquer fear and Covid-19

When fear flies out the window, you can conquer anything that holds you back. You are more loved and more resilient than you know. Want to know how to overcome fear and what we did to heal from Covid-19?

Can you imagine choosing to live in fear or pain? An interesting thought, you say? Well, how many of us remain stuck in that place.

Our ability to heal depends on our own choices. When we take responsibility for our lives, then transformation happens.

Fear & anxiety affecting the lives of those you love?

We’ve heard stories like this so many times before…You can tell something is off with your spouse, a family member, friend or child, but no matter what you do or say, they just won’t open up!

Healthy habits and how to develop them

Habits shape our lives. The question I hear repeated all around me lately is, “How do we rebuilt post-pandemic?” I’ve been thinking about the world and heard it said that we’ve all gone through a collective trauma.

Now, this is familiar territory…

Trauma changes us

Ditch mom-guilt today

Ditch mom-guilt today

When we ditch mom-guilt and remove unrealistic expectations off our lives, we can truly love and live fully. Your children will thank you for it in years to come (and so will your future-self)

Mom-guilt is a thing.

Whether you’re a mom or dad, you are prone to its effects.

A VUCA world and parenting, what a combo!

A VUCA world and parenting, what a combo!

Parents, it’s wild out there. 

“What do you mean”, you say? I’m not sure how you feel, but to me, the world is shaking. It’s a VUCA world for sure.  A VUCA world stands for Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous environment. Doesn’t that describe how things are right now?

It’s hard to parent when the threats are real. And in a time of VUCA, we need a fresh mindset, a new skillset. Many are describing the times we are living in as an age of too much.
