Go Get It – How To Thrive When Busy

When busy ensure you have a good outfit There is a famous adage “if you want something doing, ask a busy person”. That’s me, busy and always doing stuff. I’m a doer – always have been, always will be, I’ve always got a stack of projects on the go and a few more waiting on the sideline Not everyone is this way. I had a friend who had to stop her dance class when she was buying a house because it was too overwhelming. I’m the opposite. A while ago we knocked down our house and I project managed the rebuild whilst running my clinic. At the same time I was teaching, participating in a a massive self development course, kept my network marketing business moving forward, fitted in 3 holidays and a nutrition diploma and found time for my family and a bit of retail therapy. This is not to say “I’m better than my friend – actually it’s taken an awful lot of work for me to realise that my body has an overwhelm level and I have to listen carefully to it to make sure I’m not going to crash.

Skin conditions, panic attacks and stress to name but a few?  These are common ailments that the modern day woman is cursed with.

Sexual Health – More Love Means More Condoms

Protected Sex as taught by ‘The Naked Gun’ Written by Louisa at Freedom451 author of The Husband Swap Shockingly for once in a blog, I’m not talking about my own preferences. Whether I do or don’t like condoms is neither here nor there since I have an IUD (two babies is enough, thank you very much). Nor – equally shockingly – am I talking about a man. We’ve all heard the excuses – ‘It doesn’t fit’. ‘It’s less sensitive’. ‘It ruins the moment’. and if he’s really – ahem – cocky, ”They haven’t made one big enough to fit me yet.’ No, I’m talking about a very good friend in her 30s, who is highly educated about the dos and don’ts of sex…but who isn’t using a condom.
