Just Juicy and all thing Menopause with Blogger Mel Kettle. In her early 40’s Mel Kettle started to have some unusual symptoms that she knew had nothing to do with stress. Her journey to diagnosis of an early perimenopause sent her online and blogging about just what it is like to be a woman facing all of these things.
Mel and I talk about the good, and bad, of what happens to you personally when you live through this part of your life. Everything from the joys of not having periods through to the inability to sleep every night, and all things in between.
Mel has some really practical tips for hot flushes and sleeping, as well as her biggest wish… that we talk about this a lot more with the men in our lives so that they too can understand what is really going on.
Respect Yourself and have some boundaries, one of the gems from this week’s conversation with Talli Kimelman. Talli is one powerhouse of a woman who has spent her life doing what she loves, and interestingly what she actually knew she wanted to do from day one, caring for children. Having trained as a teacher Talli went on to have 11 children who are now grown. Talli then decided this was her time and she could start to do all of the things she had wanted to. An experienced parenting coach, childcare director, author of Make Mine Mensch and mentor to many young parents. Talli gives us some great tips for being a great grandparent and also being good and kind to yourself. A truly delightful conversation with someone who fills every minute of her life.
Yes, that is right you can rule your little corner of the world using an activity app called Run and Rule. Best of all it’s free.
This week I catch up with Clare Sanders from Run and Rule, a new activity tracking app for IPhones that she and her partner have developed.
The app tracks your activity and then uses that to allow you to build up your territory, therefore letting you rule your world.
It’s simple and easy to use, but best of all great fun. You can have teams, as well as using it on your own.
Clare also shares some great tips for making activity a part of your everyday. Give it a go you never know it might just be the one thing that keeps you out there and moving.
