    CwL Ep36: The Secret to Getting What You Want

    CwL Ep36: The Secret to Getting What You Want

    Over the weekend something happened that put me in a total spin. Well, for about fifteen minutes...

    You see, I'd planned a weekend away. A weekend without children, without agenda. Just for me.

    As a solo-parent I don't get a lot of that. Though let's face it, even parenting with someone, these moments of solitude are often few and far between for many.

    But I had a plan. My parents were taking the kids for two nights and I was giddy with excitement.

    In fact, I don't think I even realised how giddy I was until Mum called the day before with the news that she and Dad were really unwell and they wouldn't be able to look after the kids. The poor things were heartbroken not to be able to help and of course see their beloved grandkids.

    Tears started silently falling down my face as I felt my precious weekend escape slip away. And then I spiralled into all the stories that are so easy to spiral into...

    .... I never get any time for me.
    .... No one understands how much I needed this.
    .... The school holidays feel unbearable without a break.
    .... POOR ME!
    .... 2020 WHAT THE ACTUAL F*&K ARE YOU!?

    I gave myself the chance to feel all the feels. And then I did what has become common practice for me and for those that learn from me inside Ready for Change.

    I decided to take responsibility for the plans changing and seek solutions. Just because my PARENTS were unwell didn't mean that there weren't other options.

    You'll learn all about the big mindset shift you can make when the chips are down. And how it can move you from victim of your circumstances to powerful creator of the life you want.

    CwL Ep 35: Are you sleepwalking through life?

    CwL Ep 35: Are you sleepwalking through life?

    Self-deception is a thing!

    Many of us are champions at it. We can fool ourselves so well.

    I thought I was connected to my kids because I spent time with them...
    I thought I was reflective and considered...
    I thought I had an intimate relationship...
    I thought I was on the path to success...

    And it was only when things really began to unravel that I had to get radically honest with myself.

    I was sleepwalking through my life, not willing to go deeper or scratch beneath the surface because I was so scared at what I might find.

    That was until I did two things that started me on the path of my own awakening. And it's been a remarkable journey of self-discovery.

    On this week's podcast episode I share what they were (hint - I didn't have DO anything different - I just needed to start SEEING differently).

    CwL Ep34: You Are Not Selfish

    CwL Ep34: You Are Not Selfish

    I'm done with the story that it's selfish to take care of ourselves - to be the priority in our lives. I'm done with women feeling shame and guilt for resting when the house is untidy or there's work to be done. I'm done with the idea that we must sacrifice all for the people around us, at a massive cost to our health and wellbeing.

    In this episode I share why I hate the word 'selfish' and why you should banish it from your vocabulary!

    CwL Ep33: Case Study: Real Life Transformation with Alecia and Janine

    CwL Ep33: Case Study: Real Life Transformation with Alecia and Janine

    In this special episode we're revisiting a chat I had earlier this year with two women - Janine and Alecia - who have both created major shifts in their life using tools they learned in Ready For Change.

    In this conversation, we talk about:

    • Why letting go of 'mum guilt' is essential (and the crazy stuff that happens when you decide to prioritise your own needs)
    • How Ready For Change was the catalyst that saw Alecia lose 20 kilos, lower her cholesterol, and start doing outdoor activities with her kids that she never thought she'd be able to do
    • Why it's so damn easy for women to postpone their own happiness, put everyone else first, and feel like "this is all there is" (and why that does NOT have to be your end game)
    • What happens to your family and your relationship when YOU change? (Both women have epic stories about the "spillover effect" of the program, and how the people around them - their kids! partners! mums! - began adopting new behaviours and communication techniques)
    • Why Ready For Change is one of the only online programs they've ever finished (this bit made me so happy!)

    Alecia even shares how she thought the program "sounded silly" before she joined (I LOVED that she shared this), and why she's so glad she overcame her initial hesitation and joined anyway.
    If you ever wondered what REAL people experience from Ready For Change (rather than just hear me bang on about it all the time!), you're not going to want to miss this conversation.

    CwL Ep32: How To Find The Inner Lessons From Quarantine

    CwL Ep32: How To Find The Inner Lessons From Quarantine

    It's often in times of crisis that we discover new truths about ourselves...

    So what have these past few months of #craziness revealed about YOU? What have you learned about yourself, what you need, and how you function best? And most importantly of all, how are you going to create space for those needs, moving forward?

    In this episode, I reveal the 3 biggest things I've learned about myself during the covid shutdown. (#1 was a gimme, but #2 took me by surprise!)

    So what's this conversation REALLY about?

    • Why I need time away from my kids... and why I don't feel guilty about it
    • Who'd have thought I'd be doing more of THIS healthy habit during lockdown?!
    • Why it's CRUCIAL that we reframe our need for rest (and why you deserve it, right now, no caveats)
    • How I find time for rest, even with 3 kids around
    • My current formula for deep relaxation (hint: there's no Netflix, no phone, and no guilt!)
    • What do you want your 'new normal' to be, when this is all over?
    • How to make sure this time hasn't been for nothing
    • What can you no longer ignore about your life?

    CwL Ep31: How To Be More Mindful (Even When Life Is Crazy) With Fleur Chambers

    CwL Ep31: How To Be More Mindful (Even When Life Is Crazy) With Fleur Chambers

    Have you ever tried to practice mindfulness at home... and gotten crazy frustrated when your kids suddenly found every excuse under the sun to push your buttons?!

    Or maybe you've sat down to meditate, and 3 seconds later been bombarded with snack requests and phone pings... then completely lost your cool?!

    Can you relate? Me too. Mindfulness can feel out of reach when you've got a to-do list as long as your arm and kids pulling you in all directions...

    But today's guest, Fleur Chambers, is here to show us how a few simple reframes can help you find more moments of peace and zen in amongst the crazy.

    Fleur is a mindfulness and meditation teacher and creator of The Happy Habit app, who has supported over 600,000 people in 30 different countries to feel happier from the inside out.

    Her insights and realistic, real-mum strategies will inspire you to take action and prioritise your self-care - even if you're used to putting yourself last, and even if you're a recovering perfectionist.

    So what's this conversation REALLY about?

    • What a meditation practice looks like when you've got 3 kids (LOVE what she shares here!)
    • Are your expectations killing your chance at inner calm? Here's how to let them go
    • Why "zen bliss" is NOT the goal of meditation
    • "If I can't meditate properly, what's the point?" and other ways that mums sabotage themselves
    • It's okay if meditation feels really hard... here's how to get better
    • The deathbed realisation that meditation can help us avoid
    • Do you actually *like* yourself? If not, here's how meditation can help
    • How to stop getting so distracted
    • Powerful ways to strengthen your neural pathways
    • How Fleur hit rock bottom... and how she worked her way out of it

    So if you're after a no-BS conversation about what mindfulness REALLY looks like amongst the hubbub of daily life, and how to free yourself from crippling high standards and perfectionism, then press play - this one's for you.
