I was in a bit of a slump earlier this week. The realities of our circumstances started sinking in, and I had a few off days. I had been so overwhelmed with managing my "new normal" (staying at home and multitasking all the new roles I had to take on), that I had put zero effort into my own personal needs over the past week, and it really started to affect how I was feeling.
I needed to make some conscious changes to snap out of it. Wednesday morning, I told myself I was going to wake up with a new point of view. I took a shower, and blow dried by hair, and wow, almost felt like myself again. Look good to feel good they say.
On top of that, I made a promise to myself that I was going to do my best to deal with my anxiety and stress during this uncertain time. Making sure I am using my usual coping tools to help me manage these mixed emotions - listening to my favourite podcasts, therapy, connecting with friends, enjoying family time, and trying to slow down and appreciate the little things. These were the constants in my life before, and I needed to make sure I was leaning on them now, more than ever.
Even after making a conscious effort for 1 day, I felt revitalized again. It's truly amazing how mindset is everything, and it just reminded me how empowered we are, even in these circumstances. Feeling good and like yourself is crucial during this time, for your personal well being, and for your family and loved ones.

We have been staying home. Self quarantining, isolating ourselves - with the exception of going out in our backyard, ravine walks and bike rides on empty streets, we have not seen friends or family, not been to the park, closed our store, stopped all activities. Our routine has stopped completely and while some days are happy and fun other days are long and overwhelming. But we are doing this so that we can get back to our schedules, our playdates and seeing our loved ones. We are doing this so that we don't eventually get to a point where we have curfews, can't leave our homes and things get worse. We hope everyone is staying home and staying safe and respecting what is being asked of us so that we can curb this pandemic.
We would love to hear some of your favourite activities, accounts, insta lives that have kept you (and your littles) happy, motivated and busy. Thanks @thisiscrumb for yesterdays fun distraction - a live kids cooking class with her and her son :) Keep em' coming everyone - the sharing and support from this community has been incredible xxx #socialdistancing #flattenthecurve #staytheeffhome
We started our business 7 years ago. A concept by women for women. What started as a business that focusses on making women feel good during pregnancy and beyond, turned into so much more. We have built a community of women that helps and supports each other - sharing opinions, information to get through this exciting but also overwhelming time. We can honestly say, there is nothing more rewarding than helping women feel confident and empowered. Over the years, our business has connected us with so many amazing women - and we feel lucky to work, partner and be inspired by other incredible female entrepreneurs. Everyday we are in such awe of the strength, resilience and power that surrounds us from this community of moms. Let’s celebrate each other strengths and lift each other up not just today but every day ... 💪🏻💕

We are beyond excited to be partnering with them - we are already huge fans of the brand and their new kids collection is such an amazing mix of curated baby and toddler pieces (everything from furniture, to accessories to toys.) Can’t wait to show you guys some of the fun things we have lined up with them - check out our stories for a sneak peak! #sponsor #partner #crateandkids
