Do you ever feel lost? Do you ever feel stress, anxiety, or struggle to sleep? I know that I did. After years of feeling loss, experiencing stress, anxiety and struggling at times to sleep I wanted to make a difference. I wanted to help others feel relaxed happy and learn how to sleep.

I am a writer, life coach, and meditation teacher. I make guided meditations, meditations, and resources to help with sleep, reduce stress, aid study and promote well-being. I hold an Honours degree in Anthropology and a Masters in Counselling from Monash University, Australia, and have worked as a personal trainer, life coach, speaker, and Guided meditation teacher for many years. I present a podcast called ‘Being Well with Lauren’ and I have a virtual wellness centre where you can download meditations and resources for happiness, guided meditation, stress reduction, and well-being. In my book Daily Rituals for Happiness, I candidly share my personal experience of loss, childhood bullying, relationship challenges, and the many ups and downs of being a single mum. I try to offer hope, support and practical advice to readers. I love what I do and feel like you as my viewer or listener are my friend.

Episode 110  of podcast Being well with Lauren

True strength comes NOT from fighting or flighting  BUT from sitting in the silence

As a single Mum, age 51, with four kids, life can be challenging. One of the challenges I continue to face is the precarious ever-changing balance between mothering and maintaining my sense of self.

How do you keep a sense of calm in the mayhem of your life?

It is Sunday morning. I have just got back from basketball practice, and I have tried( emphasis on the word tried) to clean the house. I have picked up banana peels and apple cores. I have cleaned out the garage. I have washed dishes, put a wash on, Put washing away, cooked food for the next three days( I hope the food lasts that long)cleaned the kitchen, vacuumed and somehow the house still looks pretty terrible. Yes, my life with four kids life can be quite challenging. One of the issues which keep coming back to test me is how to be a Mum( I love being a Mum) without it becoming my only label. After all, Mothering is one of the labels I wear among of so many labels. I am not one story I am many stories. Sometimes in life parenting can tend to dominate our sense of self and like a tsunami drown out everything else. Thats why It is important to find ways to always maintain a sense of self, but this is easier than it sounds.
How do you so it?
How do you define the balance?
How to plan around the mayhem of life without placing yourself under too much pressure?

And let's face it Panic just doesn't help but staying calm in the chaos of life is hard work.

How do you remain calm?
Let's talk through these questions and more. Go and get your cup of tea and let's have a friendly chat.

Topics touched on:

Living in the mayhem
Work parenting balance
Single parenting
How to set and achieve goals
How to manage stress and fear
How to plan
