    Hi Lisa!!!
    I just want to say, you really are a super mum!! I’ll definitely be taking your advice xxx

    Hi Damijana, Yes, that’s an interesting one when we’re forced to slow down. Being on holiday is another good example of making promises to ourselves. The hard part is making it stick when we get back! Good luck! Hope your leg gets better soon, and you enjoy being looked after for a change!! Lisa x

    Hi,
    Extremly good advice! Since I’m in bed with my leg broken, I can stick to this. I’m wondering if this will be possible after I’m back in normal routine and overwhelming situation.

    Good for you! I hope you managed to get in those guilt-free swims. They’re ruined if they’re laced with guilt, so swim away safe in the knowledge that you’ll be a MUCH better mum when you return to your brood x

    Hi Lisa
    This was perfect timing for me, I tend not to do things for myself and then when I do I feel guilty!

    My aim for next week is to get to the swimming pool twice! I haven’t managed once in the last 6 weeks! Xx

    Hi Amanda,

    Great to hear from you and welcome to the SuperMum community. Good for you for scheduling in some time for yourself – it’s really difficult to find time but keep on trying, even when you fall off the wagon!!

    Hi Lisa,
    I’ve been listening to your podcasts for a few months now and I am learning so much. I’m a young mum/wife of a growing family, Christian, blogger, entrepreneur and teacher. I still have a lot to learn but so loving the journey and internal growth that comes from just going for it. Thank you for giving the world Supermum. Xx

    It takes real effort to carve out some ‘me’ time, so I’m so happy to hear you have! Great work Kelly! Hope you enjoy the rest of the videos,

    Hi Lisa.

    I’ve just joined this hub and I totally agree with what you said. I think as a mother you forget yourself and who you were before having the children. The real you gets put on the back burner and now you’re just mummy. So yes you should take time out from being mother and spend time actually being yourself. I take time out to go to the gym and do fitness classes in the evenings whilst the husband is at home with the children and my actual name is used!!!! So being in the next 8 videos. Xx

    Hello Priya,

    Great to meet you and sorry to hear you feel professionally unfulfilled.

    I did an amazing interview with Victoria Labalme which you should check out 041: How to Make a Virtue Out of Uncertainty . You might feel like you are ‘wandering’ professionally, but that could be a good thing. Better to be inconsistent in your profession than being stuck in one that you hate. In the Show Notes of that episode, there’s a link to Victoria’s TED Talk which is a great place to start.

    After that, the episode with Nikki Smith, 035: Seek Out Your Strengths and Discover the Best Possible You is brilliant. She’s a career coach who focuses helping people find fulfilling careers based on their strengths.

    I hope that helps and good luck!

    Hi Lisa! It was great to see you “live and in person!” Your message totally resonates and is in line with what I do with my Moms Who Dare™. I wish I knew the importance of Self-Care when my kids were younger. Thanks and look forward to the next video.

    Lisa York | SuperMum says:

    I know!! I need my reminders too. Knowing it in theory is great, but actually finding that time is much harder!! I struggle too. Thanks for saying hi Aska. I hope you enjoy the rest of the videos x

  21. Aska
    Aska says:

    I’m only learning now how important self-care is and how much it influences everything else. But this is something I regularly lose, my self-care routine. So I need your reminders Lisa

    Hello Hayley, Thanks for stopping by to say hello. Brilliant article but the way, and what an amazing mum you are bringing up your little boy as a solo parent from day one.

    Dyan says:

    Thanks so much for sharing this Lisa! I stumbled upon your podcast channel whilst in the state of desperation wondering if I was the only mum out there struggling with the things that I do. Your podcasts and videos have brought a lot of clarity and validation to the emotions and thoughts that I had that was muddled with the exhaustion of looking after a new baby. Thank you for all your efforts in creating this community where mothers can come to and feel NORMAL! Love your work!
