Episode 27: Healthy Habits for Busy Working Mums


Most of us working mums know that to thrive in our busy lives we need to focus on our health and wellbeing.  But trying to live a healthy life can leave us feeling stressed; we’re already struggling for time and energy so how can we integrate healthy eating, exercise and self-care in our already hectic lives?

If you feel like this, then today’s guest has the answers for us.  In this episode I’m joined by Laura Butler who is a health coach and lifestyle intervention consultant.  She helps ambitious busy women overcome overwhelm, burnout and crisis.  Helping them to restore balance and confidence in their bodies, health and lives.

Laura is a busy working mum too, so is in the trenches with us juggling a successful and demanding career with motherhood.

In this episode not only does Laura share her wisdom on what it takes to feel healthy, vibrant and energetic, but she also shares health habits that are easy, fun and sustainable.
