Don’t feel guilty for having ‘you time’

Being a mother of three small boys (5, 3 and 8 months), any time I wasn’t at work or looking after them I felt guilty as I started to take the odd hour to myself. Yet spending an hour paddle boarding or running made the world of difference to my mood and my ability to cope at home. Now I just enjoy ‘my time’ whenever I can! Seize every opportunity.

If I'm outside I'm happy! Fell running, mountain biking, climbing or skiing I just love getting out and pushing myself as hard as I can. As a women in adventure, I have found female role models really inspiring and motivating. There are definite moments I have really doubted myself and considered packing something in or giving up, but it's at these points looking to someone I can relate to, be that a friend or pro, really helps. Though this project I would love to find more of this type of relateable inspiration as well as being part of the wider movement to help remove any barriers to participation.
