1. Hey Lou, can totally relate. Sometimes it all just gets too much. Since last September I have cut down to 4 days a week, I have Mondays off when Cuisle is in Kita to shop, clean, Organise, go for a long run and it has had a meteoric effect on my mental health and well being to have the time to create order and prepare for the week ahead. I appreciate it’s not a luxury we can all manage and I am exceptionally lucky my boss agreed to it. Recently though I have also started to feel that loss of mental focus, walking into a room and forgetting why I went in there, forgetting my train of thought halfway through a sentence. A wonderful herb to help with mental focus is one called Brahmi. It’s one of the more common Ayurvedic herbs with many many benefits and very very effective. I have started taking it again myself to help with the mental burnout. If you are interested in giving it a go let me know:)

    Oh I’m right there with you on this one Louise! I don’t work and I still need to set these times aside to tidy and sort. That way my brain stays clear too. Enjoy your time off being productive. X

  3. Your honesty is so refreshing. You make me like a normal momma. The saying “You can’t pour from an empty cup” comes to mind. I never ever considered my mental health as part of my overrall health. Where I grew up, mental health is just not spoken about. It’s very much taboo. I’m grateful for mommas like you who help the rest of us articulate what we might be going through. Motherhood, wifeyhood can be so tiring. The breaks are very much needed.

    • Thanks Deborah, this is what I set out to achieve. So often we are made to feel abnormal when everything we are experiencing is completely normal. I want to promote a healthy attitude to our mental and physical wellbeing x
