As a full time mother and wife and a part time personal trainer and group fitness instructor, I spend a lot of time focusing my energy on other people’s needs. Helping others to identify and reach their goals. Listening and questioning and offering support.
Sometimes so much that taking care of myself and my own needs gets set to the side.
While exercise, yoga, knitting and clean eating help me deal with the minor stresses of life, sometimes I feel like I don’t have enough time to really focus on my innermost challenges. The things that I need to work on to move forward with my life goals and make me better at helping others realize theirs.
I need some self-care help!
A few months ago I heard a life-coach speak at a local ‘mompreneurs’ event. I knew at once that having someone like her in my life would lead to amazing things. Yet, somehow, I never managed to find the time (or the money) to make that phone call. Too busy putting out the day-to-day fires to plan for the longer term.
Enter my friend, Kirri White (of Happy Mums at Home). I met Kirri through a Facebook 30 day meditation challenge (I tried, but simply could not get into a groove with meditating on my own). Kirri is a life coach who focuses on teaching women (especially moms), how to nurture and care for themselves as well as they nurture and care for the others in their lives. As a mom of three young children, she understands ‘mother guilt’ and wants to teach women to put their needs front and centre.
In the short time that I’ve known her, her blog posts and Facebook updates have never failed to inspire, cheer and make me think!
She and her colleague Deb Dane are the brains behind the ‘30 Day Self Care Blueprint‘, an on-line, life coaching course to help women find and celebrate ‘me’ time.
What is ‘The 30 Day Self Care Blueprint’?
“An individualised action plan that is based on the pillars of Self-care, Self-knowledge and Self-love. You will leave with a tangible, workable self-care plan aligned with your current life circumstances, your core values, and designed to enhance your self-worth and well-being!”
Who will benefit from “The 30 Day Self-Care Blueprint”? Anyone who identifies with any of the following statements!
“You have been struggling with investing time, energy and resources into your needs, your dreams or your health.
You have lost touch with what nurtures you or fires you up!
You have put yourself last for too long and want to start honoring yourself.
You are looking for a deeper relationship with yourself and want to gain an understanding of who you are, what you want and what you really need.
You are looking to let go of perfectionism, find self-compassion and give yourself permission to accept yourself as you are. This is self improvement without perfectionism!
You are ready to start where you are right now and make a plan for how you will move forward – one step at a time, with patience and positivity.
You want a tangible, workable self-care plan aligned with your values and designed to reduce unhelpful ways of thinking, improve your self-worth and enhance your well-being.”

I’ve already registered and received my ‘homework’ reading. And because I signed up early, I received a second course for only $1. I’d like to offer the second course to YOU, one of my readers, to use for yourself or to give to someone in your life who needs some help with self-care. Mother’s Day is just around the corner; wouldn’t this make a perfect gift?
