- #GROWTOBER Day 17 •Insecurity to Security• One of the things about insecurity is that we question our own worth, looking to external things such as people, utterances and actions to orientate ourselves on the sliding scale of 'worthy to worthless'. This is tricky, and fickle. A lot of the time we base our understanding of our worth upon assumptions rather than facts - we believe we know what someone is thinking about us (or that they are thinking about us at all), or what one look in our direction might mean. And lets face it, most of the conclusions we come to, are negative. Of course, insecurity is more complex than just the assumptions we hold of what others may think of us, but this is one large element we can begin to change that affects how secure we are in ourselves. We can decided to stop ourselves going off on a tangent, a spiral, a story about something we don’t really know about. We can stop giving people the power to dictate our worth. Security has to come from inside - a belief that we are of innate worth, regardless of what we believe people think, do or say. This is a big and complex challenge (read my blog and watch my youtube for more tips on this), but once we become more conscious on these powerful, and often incorrect assumptions we make, we can certainly make a difference. Over the last three years since becoming a mother, I have become more secure in myself than ever. I have started to value my own voice and worth in place of crippling insecurity (although often hidden with seeming confidence). Partly because I just don’t have the energy or headspace to dwell on the same anxieties that I used to, but also because I’ve been through a journey of stopping giving everyone else the power to tell me what I’m worth (It’s a journey I’m still on, don’t be fooled). #psychology #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealth #value #selflove #selfcare #selfhelp #selfdevelopment #selfworth #selfworthquotes #psychology #therapy #therapy #mummy #mumlife #mumoftwo #mumstyle #lipstick #iphone #keys #flatlay #money #mother #motherhood #mommy

- #GROWTOBER Day 16. •Question the ‘Should’• I bet you slip the word ‘should’ into your vocabulary all the time. ‘I really should…’ or ‘I shouldn’t..’ Every time we do this, we are are trying to keep ourselves in check, telling ourselves we ‘should’ feel guilty if we don’t do what we feel we ‘should’ do. It’s an opportunity to conform to norms that are decided by ourselves, other people or society. It’s not always a bad thing, but it’s something that I always question with clients. “I shouldn’t be upset about this”. Well, why not?? Who’s telling you that you ‘shouldn’t or who are you using as a comparison in order to invalidate your feelings and needs into something to be dismissed? When we use the word ‘should’ or ‘shouldn’t’ we are often reinforcing the negative or the fact that we are doing something out of duty or in denial of our feelings. I’m not saying you ‘shouldn’t do all the things you feel that you ‘should’ do. I’m saying that language has a huge affect, and it’s sometimes worth thinking about where we have got the beliefs that we ‘should’ do certain things or feel certain ways. It’s about reclaiming back some power, some choice and some responsibility. Maybe change it for ‘could’?

- Wave of light. I do not know what it feels like to lose a child and my heart aches whenever I even begin to contemplate the grief and the pain that many of you have been through. The loss of a child is a tragedy. I know, from my experience of losing my sister, that the ripples of grief span far, and that heart ache actually hurts, and I've seen it in my parents eyes too as they lost their little girl. So, tonight (and often), I think of you and your babies. Here’s to your journeys of survival and your days of one foot in front of the other. Heres to your legacies of speaking out and sharing your stories so that others may know they aren’t alone (I’ve tagged four of you incredible women). If you’ve experienced baby loss. I only wish I could say more. #waveoflight #amazingwomen #inspiringwomen #instamums #instamum #grief #loss #thesewomen #heartache #healing

- Just in the car on the way home from our second curry in less than 24 hours. It's Divali and a lot of our family are Indian so it was a delicious gastro feast! I feel like I'm not going to need to eat until 2020 I'm dying for a hot bath and an episode of Dr Foster, which is AH-MAY-ZING. Why, oh why did you guys not tell me about this programme? What are you up to this evening? #ensuite #relax #bathroom #home #house #tiles #interior4all #interiordesign #interiorinspo #myhouse #myhomevibe #mummy #mumlife #mumstyle

- #GROWTOBER day 15. •Don't be fooled• It’s in our nature to present the best bits of our homes/faces/relationships/lives/children. I mean, why wouldn’t we! We KNOW that they are the best bits, we know that there are messy piles out of shot, that the momentary smile has been the only one in the day amidst the grumpy whining, or that the gorgeous meal at the fancy restaurant on holiday we shot, didn’t actuallllly taste that fab. So WHY then do we choose to buy into other’s representation of the better parts of their lives, their best angles, their tidy corners? No, we make a vast and dangerous assumption this is their normality throughout, and we end up self-critical and dis-enchanted. Even the great parts of our lives fall under this shadow, thus we lose gratitude and enjoyment. We know the truth of our own circumstances. We know our lives aren’t full of happy faces and ever-clean worktops. So, let’s continue to share the nice photos, but also write and share the rawer side of the truth too. But, lets choose to stop believing the total crap that the snapshots we see of other people’s lives, are the full picture.

- #GROWTOBER day 14 • Make it real • Find something you love, and find a way to do it. Even in a small way. Make space for the things you enjoy, and make time to invest in making some of your thoughts and daydreams into something real. Whether it's signing up to a class, changing job, or getting creative in the evening with a paint brush. It's therapeutic to do a bit of what you love amidst the jobs and the to-do lists. And as for me? It's so to bed. Thank you from the bottom of my heart to all of you who've encouraged @blom_cards and have ordered. It's been quite an emotional evening seeing something that was a dream of ours @vicky_sargent come to reality. The boys were troopers (although easily distracted 😂). We really believe in these cards and cannot wait for you to get them in your hands. We wholeheartedly trust in the insights and tools we're giving you (plus they're evidence based!) and hope that they can be valuable to you. You're quite the bunch I tell you, and we felt so honoured to be handwriting your names onto the envelopes knowing that you'll be receiving them soon xx

- Peek inside my bedside table! Selfcare for me, is all about winding down and moving towards bed! Bathtime is my favourite, and @jomalonelondon is always on my bday list! I’ve recently started investing bit more time in my skincare, so bought this RE9 night cream from @face.doctor (my GP bestie who is a full advocate of this skincare from a medical perspective too) and it’s making such a difference. I LOVE these earplugs as they drown out all the snoring. In fact, the hubby has to kick me in the night if the kids are shouting out! I bought this serenity oil from @beautifully_natural_oils who is going to put on an aromatherapy workshop on her insta soon for all of those of you who’ve been asking about them! The @soul_candles relax aromatherapy candle is also a go-to of mine. Plus a good book!!! I’ve been opting for the paper versions instead of squinting to read on my iPhone, and so picked up this little nifty light from @ifgifts in Waterstones after yoga today. What's in your bedside table??? #bed #bedtime #sleep #book #jomalone #kalms #doterra #soulcandles #reading #selflove #selfcare #selfhelp #selfdevelopment #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #mindbodysoul #mind #mindfulness

I LOVE these earplugs as they drown out all the snoring. In fact, the hubby has to kick me in the night if the kids are shouting out! I bought this serenity oil from @beautifully_natural_oils who is going to put on an aromatherapy workshop on her insta soon for all of those of you who’ve been asking about them! The @soul_candles relax aromatherapy candle is also a go-to of mine. Plus a good book!!! I’ve been opting for the paper versions instead of squinting to read on my iPhone, and so picked up this little nifty light from @ifgifts in Waterstones after yoga today. What's in your bedside table??? #bed #bedtime #sleep #book #jomalone #kalms #doterra #soulcandles #reading #selflove #selfcare #selfhelp #selfdevelopment #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #mindbodysoul #mind #mindfulness
- Talk to me about leggings peeps!! I LOVE these from @fringoo_official but all my leggings seem to go see through after a while. I've got some that are now allocated to 'home only' due to the peek of my butt cheeks through the fabric (not sure my yoga class are up for that kinda love sharing). Anyway, I can't justify Sweaty Betty or Lululelmon prices as I need a couple of pairs. Any tips?? Oh - I LOVE bright and patterned. This jumper is a fave of mine from @selfishmother It's slouchy and lovely like a big hug. I got it during my rough reflux/pnd days and it's such a comfort. #yogapants #yoga #mumlife #fitness #yogaeverydamnday #yogalover #outfitoftheday #ootd #fitmoms #fitmum #advice

- Bathroom details. Obviously out of shot is the big plastic toddler step and loo seat. Kinda kills the sophisticated gibe😂This paint colour is a shop mixed version of F&B 'stiffkey blue' and looks luxurious with the gold edged @maisonsdumondeuk mirror. We love @aesopskincare products in our guest loo to add that special touch. I love how the bottles look almost medicinal, and the smell is just divine! You can see a peek of our framed typographical print of London - where we lived for 7 years before moving to Surrey. #mumofboys #toddler #mumlife #mummy #mirror #sink #loo #toilet #myhome #myhomevibe #myhousethismonth #tiles #paint #darkpaint #interiordesign #interiors #interior4all #interiorinspo #interior4all #interiordesigner #motherhood #family #familyhome

- #GROWTOBER day 14. •Dial up• Call someone who knows and loves you. Having a tough day? Chat to someone. This is one of our @blom_cards. As a Psychotherapist I say this ALL the time to clients but today I’ve experienced again WHY it's so important, no, VITAL to good mental health. I’ve had a challenging week, emotionally and mentally. I’ve reached limits and pushed beyond them regardless. As I said in my YouTube video, when we are so stretched, often the thing that takes the back seat is ourselves. Today I picked up the phone. Twice. To two different girls who I know well, and who know me well. I took the risk of telling them how my week has been. Making yourself vulnerable is always a risk I guess. We take the risk of people turning round, calling us crazy, and the risk of being misunderstood. That’s why its so good to choose who you talk to. Not everyone will ‘get you’, not everyone will understand. My two friends ‘got me’. In fact, they echoed what I said and man, isn’t it ALWAYS so powerful to know you’re not the only person who’s felt the way you have. You see, I have so much knowledge about the human mind, and I can talk all the talk, but at the end of it all, there’s nothing like human connection to remind you that you aren’t made to do this thing called life on your own xxx Do you need to talk to someone today? Who can you call and what might you say? #mentalhealth #mumlife #mumofboys #mumofboys #talktome #talk #blomcards #mentalhealthawareness #anxiety #depression #pnd #postnataldepression #postnatal #affirmations #affirmationcards #wisdom #selflove #selfcare #selfhelp #selfdevelopment #therapy

- My little nook. Perfect size for me to sit cross legged in, with a book! I've never been able to sit like a normal person. I'm like my dad - all legs and can't just sit neatly. I'd rather sit curled up with my legs entangled in themselves like a pretzel. Or on the floor against a radiator. Maybe I should have been a cat. I love snuggly autumn 🍂 (minus the rain, the dark afternoons and the lack of sunshine. But whatevs). I painted this triangle on a total whim - fuelled by you guys. Husband still doesn't love it but everyone else does. Haha.

- #GROWTOBER Day 12. MOVE Here’s our MOVE @blom_cards Isn’t it fab? (Pre order yours for the first post on mon) Some days, we breeze through until we fall into bed tired and content. Some days feel like trudging through sticky treacle, every step requiring strength and muscle, and we fall into bed surprised that we made it through. Some people have more treacle days than others, for some, they are few and far between. Some treacle days are caused by circumstances - work stress, family dramas. Some treacle days are caused by black, hovering clouds inside tired minds. Move. Just keep moving. Some days you’ll leap energetically. Some days it’s one step in front of the other. Some days, it’s tiny little baby steps inching and shuffling through the moments. But the important thing is that you move. HOW? 1 - Identify what is keeping you stuck where you are. Is it fear of failure? For some, to move is to be at work on time, to stay awake through meetings. For others, to move is just to make the difficult step of getting out of bed and getting dressed. Perhaps it’s perfectionism or depression. Try and identify what’s holding you where you are. 2 - Start small. It’s not about ‘winning at life’, it’s about showing up. Be kind to yourself. What little, achievable thing can you do to ‘move’ forward today? Maybe it’s a little shake up of the usual routine, or perhaps it’s about making a call you’ve been avoiding, or jumping into the shower instead of living in your pj’s until the afternoon. Maybe you need to see a friend for encouragement or wisdom. Whatever you do…just take one step (no matter how small) today that moves you forwards. What helps you when you’re feeling stuck? xx #selfdevelopment #selflove #selfcare #selfhelp #mentalhealthday #mentalhealthawareness #motivation #blomcards #headphones #flatlay #wisdom #therapy #psychology #psychotherapy #affirmations #affirmation

All the old gremlins bombarded me at once) I want to feel cosy and to revel in some lovely pics.

- #GROWTOBER Day 11! Dream on (Featuring our Dream on @blom_cards ) Sleep! I don’t know about you, but sleep has a direct affect on my emotional and mental health. Oh and physical too! Lack of sleep trashes my tolerance for whining kids, stress and….you know, life. What are your sleep habits like? Are you a tea and iPad before bed kinda person? Or a hot bath and a good book? We are a sleep deprived culture! I’ve got some tried and tested tips for you! Recently I’ve had a little breakthrough.. I have often had big patches of insomnia, plus issues with lying awake for hours in the night. I’ve had days that begin at 3.30am due to a wired brain. I have dealt with chronic sleep deprivation with Charlie’s reflux (I’m talking 90 minutes a night, not able to string a sentence together, drive, or stop crying kind of sleep deprivation). When I’m hyped up and excited, anxious or stressed, I get this hyperawareness and buzz that stops me winding down and relaxing. I have a stash of sleep aids in my bedside table, from prescription knock-outs to herbal schmerbal stuff. However, they’ve recently gone untouched…. I’ve had a breakthrough. I’m not counting my chickens but these things have REALLY helped! 1 - No screen time before bed. I’ve switched from reading a book on my iPhone, to reading a paper book. To calm my mind, I have to read before I sleep as it turns my attention from the internal buzz. 2 - Yoga/relaxation breathing. Have a google of the Body Scan. It’s a phased relaxation technique where you tense and release every muscle in turn. 3 - Aromatherapy. I’m a little obsessed with oils at the moment and the Doterra Serenity oil is THE BOMB! It’s like liquid relaxation. I’m going to get a second diffuser for my bedroom so I can diffuse it. I’ve also been using the This Works Sleep Spray, and the Lush ‘Sleepy’ body lotion (all of these were recommended by you when I had a run of shocking nights…thanks so much). 4 - Write it down! Writing these posts for you for GROWTOBER and working so hard on the @blom_cards content has also really helped me. Revisiting many of these mental health tips has refreshed them in my mind. Hope this helps! #sleep #insomnia #mental

- One of my favourite views in our casa. Our huge, rustic table is the centrepiece of our kitchen lounge. Our table is so loved (read marked and scratched). We got it from a shop in Wandsworth. Long before we had kids, we dreamed that we could host and bring up kids around this table. We had huge, gorgeous wooden chairs but they crowded the space too much so we are using these Eames chairs to give a more scandi feel. .#monochrome #hallway #hallwaytable #hallwaydecor #hallwaydreams #hallwayinspo #hallwaydecor #kitchendecor #kitchenstyle #kitchengoals #kitchenstyle #decor #rusticdecor #table #lighting #light #family #mummy #mumoftwo #mumlife #interior #interiors #interior4all #interiordesign #interiorstyle #newbuild #newhouse #scandinavian #scandi #kitchen

We had huge, gorgeous wooden chairs but they crowded the space too much so we are using these Eames chairs to give a more scandi feel. #monochrome #hallway #hallwaytable #hallwaydecor #hallwaydreams #hallwayinspo #hallwaydecor #kitchendecor #kitchenstyle #kitchengoals #kitchenstyle #decor #rusticdecor #table #lighting #light #family #mummy #mumoftwo #mumlife #interior #interiors #interior4all #interiordesign #interiorstyle #newbuild #newhouse #scandinavian #scandi #kitchen
