Helping Mums Enjoy Being A Mum & Feel Happier, Healthier & Wealthier

More Contentment


To be content with what we have in life is a real gift, and not always easy to come by.  It’s not about settling with what you have got, as we all deserve the best, but it’s also not about changing what we have without appreciating it first; a complicated balance to make.

Most importantly it’s not all about being ‘happy’ or ‘positive’.  It’s about aiming to be balanced, heart centred, calm and content.

These are the blog posts that initially birthed the chapter on how to get more contentment in our lives in my book (well, they were actually in a workshop first, I’m sharing them post-publishing the book!).  Feel free to check them out.  They will be more polished in the book and there will be extra bits, but I’ll also be adding new tips or clever products in my blog that help when I find them.

See the posts below on getting more Contentment in your life.  You might also be interested in my posts about depression, Stress and overwhelm and the Power of Gratitude.
