The 20% theory to overcome stress

Kathy Krugerbalance, find your flow, happiness, work-life balance7 Comments

I have a new theory to overcoming stress. I say theory because I’m still trying to practise it, and I use ‘overcome’ when really I mean ‘cope with’ or ‘reduce’, because I don’t think we can ever get rid of stress completely. But hey its a theory so I’ve got to aim high right! Short and sweet – do 20% … Read More

Slow is not boring

If you’re savouring a return to school term, then chances are you’re enjoying your ears being spared that most moronic of holiday ear-worms: “I’m bored”! “Would you rather be back at school?” Scowl! Perhaps it’s you instead lamenting the end of that slower, sweeter school holiday pace, or rather lack of speed – actual time to get off the hamster … Read More

Do kids get too much homework?

Kathy Krugermotherhood, perspective, work-life balance8 Comments

This is a yin-yang question in the sense that I don’t think there’s any black or white answer. I’m sorry all you teachers out there – you’ll have to give me half-marks, or accept the grey. No red ink right! I’m perturbed, or in non-school-approved vernacular, pissed-off. You see right now I’m experiencing the pains (and I’m talking me personally) … Read More

Rainy days and Mondays

Kathy Krugercontentment, work-life balance29 Comments

I wear this pencil skirt I bought three years ago that was a bit too tight then, and now isn’t. I’m changed – not just by three years and less weight, but somehow essentially – not my core spirit, but that which flows from my essence (if that spiritual stuff makes sense)! I can only think I’ve come around to … Read More

10 tips for fitting yoga into a busy schedule

Kathy Krugerwork-life balance, yoga2 Comments

Life is busy isn’t it? Even though yoga, and particularly Yin yoga, bids us to slow down, work and school schedules, housework, and family responsibilities simply don’t stop. Fitting in yoga is often a trade-off (personally I’m trading in housework). Unless you’re on a yoga retreat or living in a monastery, yoga is always going to be a physical practice … Read More

When did life become business?

Kathy Krugerhappiness, perspective, work-life balance30 Comments

There’s a saying ‘it’s just business’ – which is just a lame excuse to justify less than nice ways of behaving towards people – a way of saying ‘it’s ok to treat you badly because it’s just business, it’s not personal’. This saying really bothers me, because really, everything is personal and it’s not nice to not be nice. We … Read More

Help! Have I got your attention?

Kathy Krugerbalance, work-life balance, yinyang9 Comments

Sometimes we need to imagine hearing cries for help, or visualise stop signs or even train wrecks to realize just how busy and distracted we make our lives. What would make you stop, right NOW, and focus your complete, undivided attention? An accident, bad news, spontaneous laughter, your kid’s excited pronouncement that they made the team? (‘that’s great dear’ you … Read More

The terror of public speaking about something you know little about

Kathy Krugerchange, find your flow, work-life balance15 Comments

There’s only one thing worse than public speaking right – not really feeling like you have much to say. Today I get to speak to a room full of digital native university students who are 20 (ahem perhaps 25) years younger than me AND who are studying social media. Great. I’m talking to them about blogging, a subject about which … Read More

The secret to a new perspective

Kathy Krugerperspective, work-life balance6 Comments

So it’s a New Year. Are you still living in the same house as last year? CHECK. Living with the same people? CHECK. Are you still in the same job or basically doing the same things, feeling the same (apart from all that holidaying at the beach which is over, DAMN)? CHECK. CHECK. CHECK. Do you feel the same, or … Read More

Going away, arriving home

Kathy Krugergratitude, perspective, work-life balance21 Comments

The salt has settled all scratchy on my skin. The afternoon sea breeze is a cool, gentle caress. I inhale a fresh, sharp breath through my nose from my swim, reviving my senses. The shock of the cold water has refreshed my soul, stilling my eddying thoughts in a calm, clear pool. Clarity is bright before me, crystal like the … Read More

Bruised ego

Kathy Krugergratitude, IVF, perspective, work-life balance20 Comments

My ego is bruised, rather badly. But I’ll be OK because my soul is fine (apart from the scars it already has from our infertility journey, but they’ve just made me stronger – you know scar tissue can’t bleed anymore). When we always feed our ego, we starve our soul. And you wouldn’t want your soul to go hungry. I’m … Read More
