It’s Sunday evening – are you feeling relaxed after a beautiful weekend, or have you got that Sunday dread kicking in now it’s back to school or work tomorrow?

If you’re starting to feel tension, anxiety, or worry about Monday and the week ahead, you’re not alone - so many others get this sinking feeling too. But it’s not good for your health, so let’s talk about what we can do about it...

1) Plan ahead:
Use a diary planner to map out your activities, to-do list, and deadlines. This helps clear your mind from trying to remember everything, which just makes the stress worse. 📆
Also block out a decent window of time each day for relaxing, hobbies, whatever makes you feel good💃🏿💅🏻🧘🏻‍♀️🏐. Then you can’t forget to pause, check in with how you’re feeling and have fun!
Show your kids how to pack their school bags, lunch box and set out their uniform for tomorrow – it’ll be 3 things off the to-do list straight away and will make Monday morning soooo much smoother and meltdown free.
2) Make Sunday a funday
Rather than the admin day by doing homework / chores on a Saturday instead. This leaves time for fun on a Sunday, stopping it from becoming a negative experience. It’s still the weekend! Let go of chores and prioritise being present as a family for the morning or afternoon – you’ll feel fulfilled, and your kids will feel better for the connected time with you too 🙌🏻
3) Have an early “Selfcare Sunday night”
Make it a special ritual each week. Have a 🛁, light a 🕯 , read a 📚 . Try writing an intention for the week ahead, eg, “This week I am going to do/feel/focus on…” etc. Invite your kids to get in on this too – they’ll just love the magic of it!
4) Journal
Write down how you feel, what’s on your mind. If you’re unsure, just let the pen do the work, there’s no need to overthink it. Before you know it you’ll feel soothed by having released what’s running laps around your mind. 📝
Children just love a journal. We all do! Find one for your teen with a lock and key which adds to the magic of having a safe space to pour out all of their confusing feelings. And whatever you do – resist the urge to dive in for a sneaky peek – this will crumble the trust between you faster than chocolate chip cookies last in the cupboard!
5) Meditate
Lastly, wrap up with a beautiful soothing meditation, like a grounding meditation which is ideal to overcome anxiety, as it eases your body into feeling safe and secure for a peaceful sleep and week ahead (you can find free meditations on google or apps like Insight Timer, Buddhify, Breathe etc). A great one for kids is an app called Smiling Mind – it’s simple and worded well for young people to follow along with.
And thank me for a calm evening and great night sleep later! 😴
Ahhhh and breathe….. for now it’s Sunday, savour every minute and give yourself the best start to the week possible 🙏🏻

circles as ancient medicine for modern times with mitle Southey on wild flow podcast

Circles As Ancient Medicine For Modern Times with Mitlé Southey

It’s safe to say that sacred women’s circles are making a big come back. No longer lost ancient forms of gathering in community, circles are now becoming increasingly available around the world as an opportunity to gather with shared intention, possibly to meet new friends, devote time to spiritual practice, to experience particular ceremony. Whatever happens and whoever you meet, you are sure to come home to yourself. The way of the circle offers us a very different form of connection and community in which we can come to understand ourselves and each other- and to find the magick and medicine we need at the time.

Circles are an ancient way of life, but are now being held in towns everywhere, in schools, board rooms, and online, and they have the potential to support healing and transformation of communities on many levels. I believe that when you attend your first Circle, you awaken to a new way of relating and being, and its addictive.

My first ever circle was with today’s guest Mitlé Southey in 2018, when I attended her 3 day circle facilitator training, and that immersive experience changed me deeply, and revealed a deeper path forward for me personally in my own healing, as well as in my work that I do. I’m overjoyed to welcome MItlé to the podcast, and to share with you a delicious conversation about:
What circles are, and what may happen in a circle,
Our first circle experiences, and how they shaped our lives,
How circles are medicinal, transformative experiences that can set deep healing in motion,
Why receiving guidance and training in how to hold circles is an important consideration as space holders,
How circles are available for all people, and how the circle process can be imbued into our work, lives, and relationships,
The role circles can play in rites of passage processes for all people, and how Mitlé is hosting Mother-Son circles, and I am host Mother-Daughter circles particularly. Listen in to Episode 60 of Wild Flow, and share with us 3 words that encapsulate your first ever circle experience! xxx
