ONE TINY HABIT. ONE HUGE DIFFERENCE.

ONE TINY HABIT FI

We all know the difference that little things can make – how a great song can take us from low to go, how a few green lights can mean making the meeting rather than running in late and how a coffee in the morning can set our productivity in motion. So today, I’m sharing a habit that takes me from feeling scattered and pops me right back in the driver’s seat. I use this habit EVERY.SINGLE.DAY to improve the quality …

CHANGE YOUR LIFE – THE ONLY THING YOU NEED TO MASTER

Change Your Life FI

I want to tell you how taming time changed my life. I feel compelled to share this with you for many reasons. I want you to know: Things were once chaotic and haphazard. At times, things are still chaotic and haphazard 🙂 But by learning how to manage my time, I changed my life. I am no different to you. By taming time, you can change your life too. So, here goes. This life-changing journey began for me roughly a year after the arrival …

MY 2016 POWER PLAYLIST

My Power Playlist FI

There’s no doubt about the impact that music has on our mindset, productivity and happiness. And this new year, perhaps more than ever before, I’m harnessing the power of listening to music. I’m simply LOVING the music in my current ‘POWER PLAYLIST‘ and I’m using it all the time to motivate, inspire and focus me. So, in the interests of productivity and blowing 2016 out of the water, I thought I’d share some of my current fav tunes. …

STOP BEING SO SERIOUS

Stop Being So Serious FI

This is the message I shared with the Make This Count Community the other day. (Oh, and if you’re not part of our precious community, we’d love you to JOIN US! Simply FOLLOW THIS LINK.) I simply had to share it with you to. I think it’s because in my heart I know it’s something that we’d all benefit from remembering. I know I definitely need to keep reminding myself of this 🙂 This is the message I shared: As I …

TWELVE TANGIBLE TRICKS TO TRAP TIME

FI

As you probably already know, I am a fiend for trying to be more productive and efficient. I can’t help myself. I simply can’t stand spending an hour doing a job that could be knocked off in 15 minutes. That sort of thing drives me crazy and my frustration levels sky rocket. The reason for this is based solely around my formula for happiness. You see, if you create more time in your life, then you have the opportunity to …

THRIVE IN FIVE

Five To Thrive FI

Last night when I jumped into bed, an idea found me and refused to let me sleep. It was like a dog with a bone and it wasn’t backing down. You see, for some time now, it’s been made clear to me, that there are some things I do, that others don’t. Without even really realising it, each and every day I implement a stack of little habits and rituals, which when combined, make a huge difference to the overall quality …

MINDFUL MONTH MAKEOVER

MMM FI

It’s been one thing after another this month and for practically the entire month I feel like I’ve been clinging on, simply trying to deal with each new development as it arises. As I overcame one situation, I was presented with another one. Sometimes they came hand in hand – while I was in hospital with my daughter, my husband was at home on ‘flood watch’ as we feared our home might flood in the recent cyclone that …

RESOURCE GUIDE: HOW TO INSTANTLY FEEL CALM & BALANCED

1

Sometimes, when things get super busy and we’re flat out juggling all manner of different commitments, jobs, responsibilities and roles, it can be easy to fall into feeling overwhelmed. When this happens, it can be tricky not to let the overwhelm consume us and paralyse us. With so much to do, it can be difficult to even see the wood for the trees! Doing nothing can initially seem easier, but in our heart we know that this avoidance tactic really only makes things …

ONE THING ALL MOTHERS SHOULD DO

Being A Mum FI

I’m a HUGE BELIEVER in women living their best life. I’m especially passionate about MOTHERS LIVING THEIR BEST LIFE. I think one reason I’m so passionate about mothers (in particular) being amazing is because so often I hear what I consider to be limiting beliefs surrounding what can be achieved and what life is like once you become a mother. I don’t subscribe to the ‘once you have kids your life will be over’ mentality. In fact, I …

DON’T LEAVE HOME WITHOUT THESE

Don't Leave Home FI

Life can be a funny beast. Sometimes you’re ahead. Sometimes you’re behind. Sometimes it seems easy and everything just flows. Sometimes it seems harder and it takes a lot more work. That’s just the nature of things. However, how we as individuals view the natural ebb and flow of life, has a huge impact on our overall happiness and sense of peace. Over the last few years, my ability to manage and choose my thoughts has improved profoundly. I …

HOW TO TURN YOUR HOME INTO YOUR SANCTUARY

FI

My home is my sanctuary and my refuge. It is my little place in the world – the one little patch where I can completely and simply just BE. As soon as I come through the gates of our home, I feel myself exhale. It doesn’t matter what else is going on, my home is the one place I can retreat to. I can determine its energy and its warmth by the events the walls witness. I can fill …

FUNNY BUSINESS

Laugh FI

Recently I found myself thinking about me and my laughing habits! My two year old daughter laughs all the time! She squeals with delight when you chase her. She belly chuckles when you pull funny faces. She giggles (undoubtedly the most beautiful sound I’ve ever heard!) when you pretend you can’t find her when she’s hiding in the most obvious spot ever. It’s brilliant. And so natural. And so contagious. And it occurred to me that I don’t laugh …

Friday night is date night at our place and we LOVE it! It’s such a great way to end the working week and hail the weekend. Once our little girl is tucked snugly into her bed, we enjoy unwinding and spending some quality time together. Let’s be honest, time with just the two of us nowadays can be pretty hard to come by, so honouring this little ritual is pretty important to us. We take turns planning what …
