How to build your self-esteem

building close friendships

Self-esteem is tested most in motherhood. Research shows that whilst motherhood brings lots of love and joy, a mother’s self-esteem begins to decline after 6 months of being a new mum. In order to support new mums and professional women, we developed our highly successful online self esteem boosting program. The program is designed to alter the way you perceive yourself and transition you from negative to more positive thinking styles. The course guides you through proven techniques to reduce self criticism and negative past experiences. It is designed to create your strong and resilient self-confidence through 6 Modules – each based on the principles of personalised coaching.

When to seek personalised support

build self esteem mum

Most mums will tell you being a mother is tough work at times, but what most mums don’t often talk about is the feelings of being isolated, failing, lonely, depressed, or anxious they experience in motherhood. Yet research shows us that 1 in 4 working mums cry at least once a week ( Mums are reluctant to seek help, out of fear of being seen as a failure, or a ‘bad’ mum. But, we know that seeking help in motherhood is the best way to boost your self confidence in yourself and even more – in your parenting. So, if you’re not feeling as good as you would like to, send us an email to book in a free 15 minute phone consultation, to see how we can support you back to health and wellbeing today.

The 3 Critical Stages of Motherhood

There are three critical periods in a professional mums journey into motherhood:

1) Pregnancy

2) The first 1-5 years of parenting

3) Returning to work after maternity leave

When you become a mum, all your focus is on developing a health baby. Pregnancy becomes focussed on ensuring you are doing all you can to eat the right foods, be as calm as possible, and stay active in a manner that is safe for your baby. Whilst this focus is important and necessary, it’s common to neglect your own mental and physical health needs once your baby arrives. Little attention in pregnancy is spent focussing on how you are going to cope with all the changes that occur once your baby enters your new family. This one-eyed focus unfortunately leaves you vulnerable to stress, exhaustion, overwhelm and ill health in the first year of motherhood and particularly once you re-enter the workforce. As the demands of managing a household, a social life, your relationship with your partner, finances, fitness/diet and career set in, it’s no wonder this reduced preparation for motherhood results in increased confusion about the ‘right’ way to parent and manage a healthy lifestyle. In addition to the personal impact self-neglect has on your mental health and wellbeing; exhaustion, stress and disorganisation place further strains on your career aspirations as you attempt to balance competing demands.

In order to feel happy and healthy in motherhood, it’s important to:

* develop strong self-confidence
* be organised
* maintain a healthy lifestyle that suits your personal needs
* practice the art of effective and assertive communication
* take time-out when you need it

In doing so, you:

* do not lose your identity
* can return to work with confidence and reduced guilt
* boost your level of concentration and focus personally and professionally
* create a closer bond with your child
* become a health/happy role model for your child
* increase your energy levels
* feel happier
* trust your instincts
* don’t worry about other people’s opinions
* feel more motivated to exercise
* feel more motivated to be intimate
* build long lasting and loving relationships
* feel comfortable spending time by yourself when you need it most

Through this balance of learning to prioritise your own needs, whilst STILL prioritising the needs of your child, you can create a happy, healthy, secure and safe outcome for you and your loved ones.

The Guide Every New Mum Should Own

If you’re a new mum, you’re probably exhausted, sleep deprived and wondering why no-one explained how tough being a new mum can be. You’re not alone! Adjusting from a professional career to motherhood can be a real struggle because all the focus of pregnancy is on creating a healthy baby and giving birth. No-one really prepares you for the emotional rollercoaster that follows the birth of your baby.

If you’re feeling overwhelmed, stressed, anxious, or lonely, you don’t have to struggle alone. Perfect Mum will help you to feel empowered, self-confident, re-energised and self-assured in motherhood. It’s easy to read and is designed to be a 24/7 support tool for mums just like you. The best part is that it comes with the Centre of Perinatal Excellence (COPE) stamp of approval, so you know you can trust its well researched advice and support.

The Weightloss Program Every Health Conscious Person Should Have

There are more diets on the market than you can count, but most miss the essential emotional and psychological ingredients necessary to sustain a healthy, fit and happy life – long term. Most other weight loss programs on the market achieve results (which often only last for a short period of time) through pain or punishment.  For instance, strict diets ask you to deprive yourself of tasty food, or eliminate whole food groups altogether in an effort to lose weight.  The problem with these programs is that you learn to associate eating healthy and regular exercise with pain – they create a very negative association. Research is wired to be motivated towards things that make you feel good.  That’s the problem, with these negative associations – you can sustain them for a short time, but it’s really hard to do so over a long period of time, because no-one want to subject themselves to painful experiences over and over again.

The Refresh Your Life program is different because you are not being deprived of anything.  It’s the 1st program to provide a framework for you to eat healthy foods and gradually increase your physical activity in a way that associates feeling good with healthy behaviours.  You are asked to eat – not starve yourself.  As you begin to eat better and slowly increase your physical activity the program guides you to increase your self-esteem, confidence, social networks and to take time out to look after yourself emotionally, mentally and physically.  Thus creating a positive association between eating well, exercising and feeling good.  Plus, the 30 days program is so easy to follow and includes over 20 delicious low-fat recipes that can be enjoyed by the whole family.
