Take Time Off
Having a lazy morning, making a big lunch or a walk in the park are things we all should do from time to time. And turn your phone off! I can turn my phone off no problem.
Balance Work and Home Life
I am a Mummy first and a working Mummy second. My daughters are 13 and 8 now. These are precious times that need to be treasured.
Allow Life Outside the Bubble
I eat healthily; with organic products, and no wheat or dairy but I'm not a food facist who tries to control what my girls eat everywhere. I don't send them off to parties with a tub of nuts and seeds.
Children are their own People
You flip a light switch and they go from being little to grown-ups. Mine are still young and they already know what they want to do! All we can do as parents is guide them.
Look After your Body
You get in what you put out. It is so important what we put into our bodies. I eat healthily but I still think-especially as we got older-that we benefit from taking supplements. I take Seven Seas Perfect7 for the marine oil, but also upping all my minerals abd vitamins overall. In the future I'll still want to enjoy life as much as I do now!
If I had to give my 20-something self a tip I'd say, stop being so self-concious! There is so much scrutiny om women in the media, I just think to myself your upper arms aren't that big and no-one is looking anyway!
Follow your Dreams
The best advice I've ever been given was by my parents. They told me to follow my dreams and when I look back over my 28 year career in television, I can't help but thank them for saying that.
Get on with it
You can never be prepared for what life throws at you. Sometimes you do just have to 'get on with it'. Especially as parents.
I don't apologise anymore for being happy. You need to love life and be able to jump out of bed in the morning like I do! From losing those close to me, I know how short life can be.
Give Yourself a Break
I have been critical of myself, yes, but not too hard. I think pushing yourself to try hard and learn new things is important, but you also have to give yourself a break. And relax and do your best!
