Fast forward a couple of decades and I’m noticing more and more that women are completely burnt out from trying to do and have it all.

I’ve been on this planet for 30 years, and if it’s taught me anything, it’s that we all have some s*** to clear. Pardon my French. Time and time again I come up against the same message. Whether it’s about our physical health, our mental wellbeing, or generally how to live a better life: our thoughts determine our quality of life.
