067: Edit your Life, the Key to Minimalist Parenting | Christine Koh

Minimalism can seem like a ridiculous dream when you’re up to your eyes in kiddy paraphernalia. But Editing Your Life doesn’t mean having a spartan home or a frugal lifestyle.

052: A Complete Mummy Reboot in Just 24 Hours | Lisa York

Chaos reigns within. Reflect, repent, and reboot. Order shall return
[Suzie Wagner] 

Let’s just say ….

You love your job

You enjoy every moment with your kids

You can’t bear to be away from your husband

And you want to spend all weekend washing clothes and ironing shirts.

Let’s just say.

Even in perfect-land, taking time out to reboot is really good for the soul.

And for the rest of us who aren’t living in that bubble, it’s even more important.

This week on High Five Friday, Lisa York talks about how to press the reset button and do a complete mummy reboot in just 24 hours.

050: An Easy Way to Prime Yourself to Face the Day | Michelle Dawson

You’ll never change your life until you change something you do daily. The secret of your success is found in your daily routine
[John C Maxwell]
 

Aristotle said, “We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, therefore is not an act, but a habit.”

True words. But creating new habits isn’t easy for a rushed-off-your-feet mum.

But then, can you afford NOT to have daily rituals?

If mum of three busy boys aged 5, 3 and 6 months can find time to prime herself each morning for the day ahead, then so can you.

This week on High Five Friday, Michelle Dawson talks about the incredible power of a daily morning ritual to set you up for the day.

044: Screen time; Friend or Foe? | Lisa York

Let’s Talk About Tech, Baby
[Salt-n-Pepa]

We all know that too much screen time isn’t good for our children. I’m talking video games, watching TV, using the computer or tapping away on a tablet.

Give them a device your children turn into tech-zombies. But boy, suddenly the house becomes an oasis of calm and quiet.

And you let out a huge sigh of relief.

Swiftly followed by an extra-large helping of mum-guilt that their tech usage has spiralled completely out of control.

But is all that screen gazing ever a good thing?

This week on High Five Friday, I talk about whether screen time is your friend or foe

Do your children have too much screen time, or have you already trained them to amuse themselves? If so, how did you manage that???

I’d love to hear your story in the comments.

I know, I tried this week.

And failed.

This week on High Five Friday, I talk about the sure-fire way to make time for yourself in an overflowing life.

032: 5 Practical Tips for Busy Mums to Get More Sleep

Let me sleep, for when I wake I will move mountains

pexels-photo-46100Sleep, elusive sleep

From the last weeks of our first pregnancy, the sleep deficit begins. And so to, a taste of things to come. 

For me, that was over seven years ago. And as much as I hate to be the bearer of bad news, I haven’t had a full eight hours since. 

Self inflicted admittedly. I’m not pregnant, don’t have a newborn and my kids sleep like angels. 

But oh! That precious golden time once the kids are in bed. The day is done, the jobs are finished (at least for now) and the house is quiet. 

ME TIME!!! Yippee 

Why would I want to give that up to go to bed?

But how well is the lack of Zzzzzz’s serving me? 

In this weeks episode of The Friday Café, Michelle Dawson and I talk about sleep, how a lack of sleep affects our mothering, and what we can do about it.

This weeks challenge:

My challenge for this week is to consider how much quality sleep you’re getting and what steps you can take to get a little more.
I’m in this challenge right alongside you, because I battle it too. Its difficult I know because that pocket of ‘me’ time is so elusive.
But if you can conquer it, your awake time will be far more productive, and you’ll also notice that you’re better able to move mountains when you’re fully rested. So don’t see sleep as time wasted.

Tell me what you think?

Tell me in the comments. How many hours sleep do you get a night? Is it enough or do you feel tired during the day? How can you claw back a bit more time for sleep?

I’m here to spur you on and help you as much as possible

Hope you enjoy the show.
