Advice from Steve Jobs


Motivation Monday

Steve Jobs crafted an incredible essay while in his last days.

“I reached the pinnacle of success in the business world. In others’ eyes, my life is an epitome of success.

In the darkness, I look at the green lights from the life supporting machines and hear the humming mechanical sounds, I can feel the breath of god of death drawing closer …

Sleep Tips & Meditation To Feel Energised

I have just finished a meditation challenge and what a week to do it in. Bah! My toddler has had a crazy week (not just on the full moon!) and doing this meditation challenge has helped me to:

  • feel more energised (what every sleep deprived mom needs right?)
  • release physical tension (I lie down to meditate)
  • release emotional cr*p from relentless toddler meltdowns
  • feel more refreshed (even when my to do goes round and round in my head while meditating)
  • in all honesty, it was just what I needed to cope this week (I just didn’t know it!)

I have created 10 daily sleep tips including a 10 minute meditation to help sleep deprived moms feel more energised. Get better sleep and get an energy hit here!
