You love the concept of the school holidays...

but once the chaos sets in, then overwhelm, the reality turns out to be not quite what you imagined.

The BackStory..

Some mothers live for the school holidays. They count down the days. Others? We want to be those mothers. Not that we don’t love our kids just as much, or enjoy spending time with them. BUT it can be very hard work when they are all home, all of the time, for weeks.

The constant noise, mess, and intensity that comes with long days with little ones can overwhelm even the most resilient Mum!

I know that’s how I felt on Boxing Day 2019 after months of busy-ness, in a record drought on our farm, and looking ahead at another month before School and Kindy went back.

I knew I needed to make an attitude adjustment, because I want to embrace this precious season of my life rather than wishing it away because it feels hard. I needed a MindSHIFT! So, I documented the good, the bad and the ugly from 30 days of the School holiday period with our boys: to reflect on, learn from, and to help others. And so, the School Holidays MINDSHIFT eBook was born (with lots of gorgeous extras)!

A Note from Benita...

I am passionate about authentic conversations around mindset and mental health on the journey to, and through, motherhood. This includes monitoring and managing my own, because my greatest challenge every day is the woman in the mirror.

School Holidays MINDSHIFT is full of juicy goodness that has helped me enormously to make my own shift in mindset from overwhelm toward embracing the school holidays. I am sharing it because I know it will help you too, so do yourself a favour and buy yourself or someone else a present!

With love,

Benita x
