Teaching children about money

Pocket money, saving and a smile jar We teach our kids so many important skills as they grow, everything from tying their shoelaces to driving a car. But one thing that’s often overlooked is teaching children about money. One survey of Australian university students aged under 20 found that more than 65% felt they didn’t have the financial life skills they needed as an adult. As parents, the time we have available to influence and…

I know a thing or two about grief and loss

In 2013, my sweet little boho family relocated from Queensland and bought a stunning 25-acre New South Wales coastal property, an easy five-minute drive to the beach. We had our horses, dogs, chooks, a very successful business and so many plans for the future. I could never have predicted the grief and loss I was about to experience. I thought I was living the dream. I was turning 40 and about to celebrate my 10th…

Why single mums need to slow down

Solo parenting is a hard gig, be kind to yourself I never thought I’d be a single mum. So, when it happened, I was completely blindsided. My life, and my darling children’s lives, changed overnight. As a mum, I’ve always felt like women are the project managers of the home. I know that seems like a controversial thing to say, but it’s the truth. Even for married or partnered mama’s, tell me who does the…

Embrace the joy of missing out

JOMO (Joy of Missing Out)Oh the joy of missing out. When the world begins to shoutAnd rush towards that shining thing;The latest bit of mental bling –Trying to have it, see it, do it,You simply know you won't go through it;The anxious clamouring and needThis restless hungry thing to feed.Instead, you feel the loveliness;The pleasure of your emptiness.You spurn the treasure on the shelfIn favour of your peaceful self;Without regret, without a doubt.Oh the joy of missing outby…

Create Christmas traditions that really matter

5 reasons you should give experiences as gifts this Christmas The kids rip through the wrapping paper at lightning speed, not slowing down for long enough to enjoy the gift before moving onto the next. At the end of the day, they’ve received so much stuff they can’t remember what they got (or who gave it to them) and you’re wondering where on Earth you’re going to put it all. Sound familiar? Maybe it’s time…

How to be a minimalist in 1 simple step

The benefits of simplifying your life So, you want to know how to be a minimalist? Or does the thought make you want to run for the hills? Just the word ‘minimalism’ makes some people cringe. It conjures up images of stark, white walls, sparse furnishings and a half-empty wardrobe. For some of you, this would be a welcome breath of fresh air, while for others their first thought would be “we’ve been robbed”! The…

Slow Down

Q&A with Hiddy

Yes, sometimes I rush too This week’s blog article is a little different. In my work developing digital courses and content for my slowing community, I’m always focused on you and giving you the most value and support I possibly can to learn how to slow down. But I also understand you want to know a bit more about me. Truthfully, it feels a bit awkward to talk about myself – I’m far more interested…

The importance of rest and relaxation

You don't need anyone else's permission to slow down I’m not going to insult your intelligence by telling you it’s important to rest and relax. You already know that. So, let me ask you? If you understand the importance of rest and relaxation, why aren’t you doing it? Why aren’t you honouring yourself with time to recharge, time to daydream, time to just BE? I talk to LOTS of women and I’m struck by the…
