Tip 1
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.

Tip 2
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.

Tip 3
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.

Tip 4
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.

Tip 5
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 2172_image2.jpgalso upping all my minerals abd vitamins overall. In the future I'll still want to enjoy life as much as I do now!

Tip 6
Be Confident

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!

Tip 7
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.

Tip 8
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.

Tip 9
Be Happy

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.

Tip 10
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!
