The Problem with Blogs Is…… looking back over two years.

Updated: Dec 24, 2020

The problem with committing to writing a regular blog is that you need to have something noteworthy and relevant to say on a regular basis. It needs to be something that will speak and resonate with your audience and make them think about things a little differently. It needs to be valuable content that continues to place you as a knowledgeable person in your chosen field. It also needs to be consistent. You need to commit to showing up every day/week/month – depending on the frequency that you have committed to.

Otherwise it ends up being just a rambled bunch of words whenever the whim hits!

Over the last two years that I have been writing a monthly blog – this one being the latest edition! I have only missed my self-imposed monthly deadline a couple of times. The last missed deadline was November 2019 and that was because I was busy preparing, promoting and running a webinar series called “Busting the Three Menopause Myths” (available on replay by request) – in addition to a family trip abroad.

The struggle is when real-life becomes overly stressful, tense, anxiety-ridden, feelings of being unable cope, and a sense of being out-of-control. I think there is often a misconception that we are trying to rid our lives of the JUGGLE without realizing that what we really want to eliminate are the feelings of STRUGGLE. And there are many ways to change that perspective and mind-set – and very practical ways to achieve it.

For me, yoga-based techniques and tools provide a holistic approach to achieving balance within the juggle. By creating a space that has the ability to create awareness,  strengthen understanding about what is going on in your body, and deepen the body-mind connection, Yoga for Women’s Health has the tools to change you both physically and emotionally.

Over the last two years I have also had to opportunity to write about a number of women’s health issues, from embracing your hormones, to connecting to your
