Work Life Balance - have you got yours in check?

Rebecca joins Heather Cassidy from Media Sound Wave on the couch during their Health and Wellbeing show to discuss the work life balance. The work life balance is a term we hear everywhere now but is it firmly stamped on the map for corporate companies?  Do wellbeing strategies exist as the norm or are they still an exception?  Are individuals aware of their wellbeing and how it may be affecting their lives if they don't have it in check?

Love is not just a four letter word

Love is not just a four letter word.  Love is the connection with self.

Valentine’s Day is here!  The day where we openly express our love and emotional connection with one another.  However we believe at Haelan that ‘to love or to be loved’ has to start much closer to home and on a far more regular basis than just once a year!

Two of the most basic needs of childhood are love and emotional connection.  When we receive both of these we learn to be loved, feel worthy and valued.  We learn to connect with ourselves and in turn go on to show our love and affection for others too.   

“Connection is the energy that is created between people when they feel seen, heard and valued” Brene Brown

By connecting with ourselves first before seeking the validation from another,  we can go on to express our love and gratitude far more honestly and authentically and in return receive it.   So on this Valentine’s Day take a moment to focus on you and how you are feeling.  Express gratitude for yourself, love yourself and recognise one positive thing in your life regardless of how big or small.  Go on to tell the person closest to you how much you love them too.  Connect inwardly first and then spread the love....and we bet you’ll be doing it far more than once a year as a result!

Happy Valentines today and every day.

With love xx

May the road always rise up to meet you


Today is International Women's Day which is all about celebrating the strength and achievement of women around the world.  As I walked home from dropping the children at school this morning it gave me a moments peace to stop and reflect on my achievements with Haelan and the women who have inspired me to create what I have today and to push on forward changing the world one Haelan therapy session at a time.  Thank you, if you are reading this you know who you are.  May the road always rise up to meet you xx #internationalwomensday #wellbeing #bestrong #mymum #mygran #mydaughter #myfriends
