I only asked for 10 minutes

Written by: Dianne Edmonds Posted on 29 Apr 2013 0

How many times when that 10 minutes mattered to me, and “would have” saved my day from going downhill, in these days of raising children? It was highlighted again this morning, when my walk was short, the mornings being darker now, and I get home still in time for my husband to go to work.

The Gift of an Ordinary Day

Written by: Dianne Edmonds Posted on 22 Apr 2013 0

I love those words by author Katrina Kenison in her book The Gift of an Ordinary Day. I read the first chapter yesterday. After hearing her speak in an interview with the Power of Mums recently, I ordered a number of her books to read, including Magical Journey, An Apprenticeship in Contentment.

While I have written about sleep before.....

While I have written about sleep before, when I said in my last blog that I was going back to my postnatal 0-3 weeks set of exercises, I didn’t mean that I also wanted to feel sleep deprived. But, with nearly a week of interrupted sleep at the time of writing this, I am.

9 1/2 m...no years....Post Natal

Written by: Dianne Edmonds Posted on 01 Apr 2013 0

Ok, I will admit it. I am 9 ½ years post natal! I have been going to make a ‘come back’ since my second child, my son, was 6 weeks old, but it still hasn’t happened.

Jayden Eden 17/04/2014 12:33:42 PM The brain is an amazing tool if you know how to use it and sharpen it. You can literally do anything you set your mind to. I love how you mentioned that the "brain reserve can be used and needs to be refilled," because it is very true. If you train your brain, you can learn to use more of it. By doing this, you will become a smarter human being.

Dianne Edmonds 6/02/2014 1:01:14 PM Thanks Lori! Great idea to give Tiara's to your patients! Love it.

Lori 6/02/2014 7:09:12 AM Oh you are so funny! I started reading her book but kept forgetting about it (bought it as an ebook - so not the same as a book in your hands)! I bought some Tiaras to give to patients and now I will go buy some marbles! Thanks for sharing, Dianne!

Sarah 29/10/2013 5:31:53 PM "Dr Sara talks about womens’ tendency to “over providing”, which drains our energy, kills our sex life and undermines our families happiness. She also talked about the “muffin top” ie belly fat that won’t move, sugar cravings and women needing a glass of wine to sooth themselves and to settle down at the end of the day."

I think she might be onto something. I can certainly relate to most of these 'symptoms'.

Thanks Dianne

Dianne 20/08/2013 11:01:12 AM Thanks very much Fiona! Will take your advice and aim to keep the beds ongoingly made too! Dianne

Fiona 19/08/2013 11:41:08 PM Hi Di,
Glad you have survived the move and all seems to be going well. I love your website. I'm looking forward to having more time to click around here!
My moving tip is make up the beds as soon as you can in the new house (and don't cover the beds with stuff) know where the kettle is packed for emergency cups of tea and order take away dinner for the first night.
See you

Lori Forner 12/08/2013 6:35:49 AM Amazing work on Pelvic Floor First!!!! Thank you for your passion in helping women! :)

Lori 25/06/2013 8:11:24 PM Congrats!!

Dianne Edmonds 3/06/2013 5:24:30 PM Thanks Lori for your comments. It would be great for postnatal mums to learn this now and not take 9 1/2 years like I did to find out about this information. I was listening to Dr Sara last night and was reminded that we can help join in with her audacious goal to balance the hormones of 1 million women in 2013 - starting here with our postnatal mums!

Thanks again Lori!
