Somewhere along the journey of motherhood, have you lost a sense of who you are, what you want and what is important to you? Do you rarely do something just for you? Are you constantly feeling depleted of energy, drive and passion for life? It doesn’t have to be that way. Being a woman with children can be fun, enjoyable and fulfilling.

In this book, Nikki Cox shares proven, easy-to-do strategies to nurture and empower you to live a happier, balanced life as a mother.

Change the way you live your life by becoming clear on who you are and confident to make positive changes. You are more than just a mum.

Quoted in post by Anna Brophy ‘Planning a Break Without the Kids? Selfish or Genius?

It is so easy to slip into relationship lethargy once the kids consume your lives. Nikki, founder of Nikki Cox Wellness, agrees by pointing out, “Rest, relaxation and replenishment also promotes a happier life, which emanates from parents to their kids. As the research tells us, happiness is contagious, so happy parents = happy kids = a happy family unit!”

Quoted in article by Sue Ramsay ‘Science-backed Ways to De-Stress’

Studies have shown that if you look at an image of a natural environment, your stress levels drop and your mood and energy levels improve, says parenthood wellness coach Nikki Cox. “It’s because you’re allowing your brain to dial down and rest, like an overused muscle”, she explains. “Your brain understands that natural environments contain highly complex sensory inputs and innately refuses to interpret or make sense of them, so it relaxes. And that’s just by looking at nature! But actually getting outdoors and connecting directly with natural environments provide much greater benefits.” Here, Nikki suggests some low-cost, low-effort ways to get outdoors:

go for a walk/run/bike ride / eat outside on your lunch-break / have a picnic / swim in a natural body of water / do some gardening / go stargazing

Having a wellness coach gave me the opportunity to talk about myself and my life in a way that I never have before. Through working with Nikki, I was able to identify my inner strengths and passions and apply them to many areas of my life.
