I posted this towards the end of last year when I was rundown and sick on and off for a month: 

“SO, going forward I am not going to be so busy, that I don't take care of myself. I am going to take mini breaks, I am going to make time for coffee with girlfriends, I am going to make tea in my teapot and sit and drink it quietly, I am going to work on ticking off my bucket list. From today, not next week, not in the new year...TODAY!”

Since then, I have made some defining changes, small things, habits that individually don’t make a huge difference, but collectively have added hugely to my quality of life. Hey, I have a good life, actually a great life and these changes just make it even better!

Here are the 5 small changes I made in January:

1. Before I rush out the door to work, I take time to sit down and eat breakfast. No more eating on the run!
2. I make a conscious effort to be courteous in traffic. Not a biggie, but I certainly get to my destination happy and relaxed.
3. Once home in the afternoon, I make a pot of tea (in my favourite teapot) and sit outside for 5 minutes before I start the chores of the evening.
4. I go to Pilates once a week. I have been promising to start for a few years now, and finally did it. I am looking forward to a stronger, more supple body soon!
5. No more coffees on the run. If I cant sit down to enjoy a cup of coffee, I opt for a glass of water instead.

As I said, not huge changes, but huge benefits!

I somehow feel full for longer, and don’t get hungry as quickly. My body is getting stronger every week. I savour my coffee and tea. I no longer feel frazzled in traffic (well most of the time).

My point is, lets work on being less busy. Let’s work on enjoying the small things in our lives. Lets get UNBUSY!

How to Get Your Family Through a Busy Week

School holidays are behind us, and another term starts with all the pressures of getting to school on time, homework, extra murals and homework. It’s probably quite hard to get back into a routine and so I thought it a good time to talk about how to get you and your family though the week smoothly and without stress.
The key is to lead a simple life during the week with a plan of action, daily routines and early nights. Then relax over the weekends!
