Having a baby doesn’t mean you have to hang up your boots. It’s important to recognise that before there was ‘Mummy’ there was YOU.
6 Great ways to rediscover YOU
Sing to nourish the soul
Have you always loved singing but the shower screen has been your audience for the past decade or two? Why not check out Rock Choir? Join on of their classes to meet new friends and the chance to perform on stage!
Get hands on - upcycle!
Shop for items by day, upcycle by night. If you love all things interiors and don’t mind getting your hands dirty, upcycling furniture or household items can be a great way to get creative and even make a few bob or two if you decided to sell.
Become a ‘Mumpreneur’
Mummy networking has been on the rise over the past few years and more and more communities are hosting business networking events for Mums, so even start at 6am allowing Mummy to be done by 8am if they need to do a childcare swap.
Learn something new
If you fancy returning to the classroom it doesn't have to be all languages, business or IT. There are lots of unique courses on offer these days from hobbyist classes such as DIY, cookery and clothes-making, to career progression courses such as bookkeeping, admin and management.
Even a little goes a long way
Time is hard-pushed when you're a parent but if you want to give something back then there are volunteer opportunities out there - even an hour goes a long way. Find nationwide opportunities via do-it.org
Hike it out
Do you love the great outdoors but the closest you get to a hike is the umpteenth time you went up the stairs today? Check out Ramblers and find a local walking group and with all that fresh air you will be paving the way to a happier, healthier you
