I know it sounds a little bit lame, but I only really discovered podcasts in 2017. I’m not even sure what made me open the podcast app but I started with a podcast from Headspace. This was also during the throws of postnatal depression. Now that I’d found a podcast to listen to, I found some similar podcasts. And so began my road to devouring self-improvement related podcasts. A little note about [...]

Opening Up About Postnatal Depression

2019-08-01T19:11:22+10:00

I knew something was up when I realised that my daughter was five days old yet I had not kissed her once. This got me so worked up that my eyes filled with tears at the thought of it. I really struggled to kiss her then and there. You hear about people falling instantly in love with their child and feeling this special connection. I didn’t feel that. I spent perhaps an hour with my daughter before I was whisked off to surgery, to be reunited with her six hours after her birth. My daughter’s six-week maternal health nurse appointment [...]

Learning How To Give Myself Grace

2019-07-18T20:47:47+10:00

I have recently been learning how to give myself grace, particularly when it comes to my daughter. I’ve inherited a trait from my dad that I’ve only just noticed: impatience. I am very impatient with a short temper when it comes to my daughter. And it doesn’t take long before I start to feel how I did at the peak of my postnatal depression. So for me, learning how to give myself grace is becoming something I really need to pay attention to. I need to have more patience, more grace and put a lid on my temper. Some days [...]

9 Uncommon Ways To Practice Self Care

2019-04-22T21:56:28+10:00

Sitting in a hot bubble bath or doing yoga is not everyone’s cup of tea when it comes to self-care. While I do love a long hot bubble bath, yoga is just too slow for me. The term self-care wasn’t something I was familiar with before trying to become a parent. Before that, it was just part of what I did anyway. But going through IVF, an importance was placed on looking after my mental health. Now self-care means taking the time to do things that I enjoy and being a little bit selfish with my time to make sure [...]

A Two Day Journal Of My Anxiety

2019-03-09T12:18:09+11:00

I never had anxiety until I was pregnant but it has lingered ever since. Just like everything, there are good days and bad days. And I recently had two bad days in a row. So this is a journal of my anxiety for those two days. Friday I almost didn’t leave the house this morning. I'd booked and paid for a play session with a candid photoshoot for my daughter but I almost didn’t go. I changed my top twice. I made sure to have a breakfast that wouldn’t make me look bloated. Even shaving my legs for fear of [...]
