Every day Facebook is showing me so many posts about how women feel like they want to go home and just drink wine because they are stressed and exhausted. Now I’m all for a good social drink, but if your life is so hectic you want to drink every night to cope you’ve got a problem. Not cool. Why is this glamorised? They have a name for this – alcoholic!
But I’m not saying this to judge you, not at all. I’m worried because so many women share the same reason behind the drinking and binge eating – stress. Our modern lives have spiralled into craziness! The lifestyles and expectations we have aren’t congruent to good health.

But that being said, the lesson I learned from this has been absolutely invaluable. Let me explain. (more…)

Confidence is key, as they say, though it’s not the same as self-esteem, it is linked. Psychologists have conducted quite a lot of studies about self-esteem for quite some time. And for good reason!
Having a low self-esteem can lead to all sorts of problems such as: poor relationships and job performance, and increased anxiety, stress and depression. As well, it can make a person more vulnerable to drug and alcohol use (CMHC).
If you believe your self-esteem is truly impacting your life, you should consult with a doctor or psychologist to help you overcome major obstacles.
For today though, here are some things that you can do to boost your self-esteem today, so that you can start finding more happiness and success. (more…)

I can get pretty impatient and bland sometimes. I kinda just slap things together and keep moving. As a busy mother, I have a fair bit to do, and as much as I love looking at other people’s creativity, I just never felt it was so important in my life.
