Message from The Mermaid - Keep Swimming

As I continue to prepare the Naturally Empowered Collection for its debut in October, a message from the next soap is the topic of today's blog post:  Let's face it, some of us don't do a great job of starting our day, let alone following through on tasks throughout that are important, yet maybe a bit--tedious. Take self-care for instance. We know it's important, but life gets in the way with distractions and other things we consider important, but then we feel the effects of neglect. That's why I created this collection of soaps. It's a dually-powered system to naturally...

Finding Me-time in your day - Every mom's challenge

  Perhaps the biggest challenge for moms that I hear, and have felt myself, is the need for more me-time in the day. It just doesn't exist anymore, not for the moms who are too busy managing work and home and the 'thinking' tasks that consume us all. In essence, we're busy doing it all or worrying about not getting it all done.  Here's the thing, though, it doesn't have to be like this, at least not to this extent. I'll never say that it will get 100% better because there are 'jobs' that will always fall to us, but there...

Overwhelm and the working mom

Overwhelm and the working mom:    Overwhelm isn't just something we struggle with on a personal level; for women, it really is a systemic issue. What I mean by this is that before it can be resolved  it needs to be examined as a central problem before we can break it down and try to solve it in a series of small steps. With so many dimensions, it seems too exhausting to attempt a solution, and so it continues.  A few of the challenges: We seek more flexibility at work so that we can have more time at home: But...
