“We have set up a daily and weekly routine for the family. As my husband and I are both working from home with our kids, it’s this routine that allows us to focus on our work and then on the kids’ needs. We plan daily activities for them on top of their school work to break up the day.
I am taking a vitamin C powder daily as an immune booster and I love eating lots of fruit and vegetables.
I am also trying to take walks when possible at this time, and get in a morning meditation on our balcony.
I have been watching some favourite old movies such as The Big Blue, Great Expectations, The Breakfast Club, Dirty Dancing and Pretty Woman.
I have also been keeping active with F45 online where the kids also join in from our lounge room.
Personally, being able to be around my kids and learning through their eyes has been so amazing to witness. They are so resilient and I see that they can get through anything – even a pandemic. Professionally, communication and leadership during this time has been so important for me, and I continue to learn and grow with my team. I am lucky to have a great support network.
I think we all need to make changes to prevent future outbreaks. For me, I am grateful that we have had the ability to get outdoors and be amongst nature. Exploring trails with the kids and getting back to grassroots has been so important for our family. Of course, we continue to practice social distancing and we are more aware now than ever that life can change in an instant and not to take it for granted. Together we can make a difference.
I recently purchased a beautiful PJ set from Jasmine & Will – you could stay in them all day.
Working from home can be stressful, so I like an understated scent that creates a productive environment. Peppermint and citrus notes have been found to improve concentration and memory, and may even boost brain power. I recommend the Tunisian Mint Tea or Sicilian Citrus candles, which are both great fragrances for any space throughout the house.
Ylang Ylang is known for its relaxing properties. The pure essential oil of these blossoms has been found to aid issues of stress and anxiety – perfect for bath time rituals or setting a mood in the bedroom. I recommend the Balinese Ylang Ylang Candle.
