Walk

2022-08-07T12:11:32+02:00July 25th, 2022|

When I was a kid, my parents always took us on Sunday walks in the woods. I loved them as a kid, less as a teenager and when I became an adult the whole purpose of walking or hiking was lost on me. In my thirties I started hiking. Even did some serious mountain hiking. When I had babies, taking them for a walk was my own walk to sanity as they'd instantly fall asleep. Later as kids they loved to roam the woods and explore and equally started hating our hikes when they turned teenagers. 😂 Now I [...]

8 easy steps to worry less

2022-07-15T15:41:39+02:00July 15th, 2022|

Apparently I am the worrying kind.... Sure, I worry about my kids and their future and happiness. I worry about my health, the state of the world and money sometimes. Those are the big ones. But they don't occupy my mind daily. They pop up when something happens or doesn't happen (school results, a blood test, bad news etc). Then I worry. For a while. And then, if I can, I usually do something about it. Like make a change, an appointment, get more information, talk to someone for a perspective. [...]

What does self-care look like for you?

2022-07-11T15:33:13+02:00July 11th, 2022|

It looks different from one person to another. We all need, like and crave different things. Self-care can even look different from one day to another. 🦋 What does self-care look like for you? 🦋 There are the obvious: sleep, healthy food, exercise, meditation etc. But it can also look less obvious... ✨Hugging a tree ✨Taking a walk ✨Making art ✨Reading a book ✨Hugging a pet ✨Noticing the little things ✨Lighting a candle ✨Picking flowers ✨Looking at the stars ✨Going for a walk ✨Walking barefoot in [...]

100 things I love

2022-04-30T19:24:33+02:00July 30th, 2021|

A happy life is just a string of happy moments. But most people don’t allow the happy moment, because they’re so busy trying to get a happy life. – Abraham Hicks We all have busy lives. Job, kids, partner, friends, parents. We try to juggle it all, fit it all into one day. And we manage. And we are happy. Sort of. We are chasing success, perfection, happiness. Because that is what is expected of us. Right? This chase can very quickly become an obsession. We need to be better, faster, more perfe [...]

How to talk about ‘uncomfortable’ subjects

2022-04-30T19:25:39+02:00July 16th, 2021|

We've all been there. We want or need to broach a 'delicate' or 'uncomfortable' subject with someone: with our partner about sex with a good friend about returning money to us with our boss about a raise ... and we chicken out, we postpone, procrastinate, pretend everything is fine and we don't need to talk about it, let the subject go around and around in our heads until it hurts. We're afraid of messing it up, of 'bringing' the subject in the wrong way, of getting emotional, of looking stupid [...]

The web and blog world is full of 365 projects where people decide that for a year they will do something every day: take a photo of themselves, paint a picture, donate to charity etc. Here are a few simple ideas for little habits you can do every day for a year to make you a bit more creative: Let someone else draw a stripe or doodle on a piece of paper and then make a drawing from that. Look up what happened on that same day in the year you were born. Take a picture of a cloud. Take a picture [...]

Your Circle of Self- Care

2022-04-30T19:33:22+02:00July 2nd, 2021|

Remember that I introduced you to the Life Wheel a while back? It's a worksheet that helps you identify where you stand in all areas of life and where you might need some work. If not, you can download it here. Today I want to introduce you to a different kind of wheel: the Circle of Self-Care. Your circle of self-care is basically the foundation of your life. The different elements all contribute to your happiness, balance and overall wellbeing. There are different slices to the Self-care pie: [...]

Miranda’s favorite things – June 2021

2022-04-30T19:30:59+02:00June 25th, 2021|

Remember my recent favorite podcasts post? Today's another collection of my recent favorites, but a more generic one. Enjoy How we love There is the book, and initially it was written for couples to improve their marriage and partnership. However, how we love is so much broader than just with our significant other. Each person’s childhood experiences form the roots of who they are; continuing to inform the way that person responds to others or expresses love, even far into adulthood. The r [...]

Revisiting your word of the year

2022-04-30T19:37:43+02:00June 18th, 2021|

As many of you know, I choose a Word of the Year each year. It accompanies me throughout the year and has served me much much better than any resolution I have set in the past. Recently I have been feeling quite aligned with myself and I stumbled across an article of my first life coach on revisiting your word of the year. It is good practice to revisit your word of the year at the mid point of the year – so we're just in time for summer solstice happening this weekend… My word for 2021 was SOF [...]
