Welcome to Nurtured.me. My name is Rachael, and I’m a single mother to two adorable little girls. I’m currently sleep deprived, due to night-time snuggles and work, to the tune of about 5 hours a night (when I really need at least 10). I am surviving on love, snuggles and lots of sugar-free chocolate at the moment. You are very welcome to stay for a while here, have a look around and a poke about . If you want to get in touch I would LOVE to hear from you. You can email me to just say hi, tell me about yourself or make a suggestion.
A Little About You
You’re a parent to a young child or children, you’re dedicated to them, but there is more to it than that. You want the very best for your child and sometimes give yourself a hard time about getting it wrong, but the very fact that you worry about this confirms what an excellent and caring parent you really are!
You want to spend more quality time with your children, and spend less time on essential tasks and chores that take away from the fun play time.
You’re sometimes at a loss with what fun activities you can do with your children, and end up opting for the easy option of the TV or a movie.
You want to do things for yourself too, but by the time they go to sleep, you’re completely zombied and can’t think of anything you could do for some ME time.
You enjoy cooking, or at least you like the concept of enjoying cooking, and you’d like to know how to make more nutritious meals for your family, which don’t take hours of time away from your children and don’t come out of a box or the freezer.
You care about our planet, you’re making changes for yourself and your family and trying to be concious about the things that you consume.
A Little About Nurtured.me
Nurtured.me is intended as a place of nurturing for parents and everyone else. With tips and information on a variety of ways to help improve your own health and wellbeing, which will, in turn, increase your capacity to nurture our children. If we are feeling low or exhausted ourselves, it’s hard to give out good to others. I know how hard it is, with only 16 months between my girls, parenting is exhausting! But with a few small changes to your routine and diet, you can feel great again, even without 8 hours a night.
I feel it is so important to give our children the best of us. They are the next generation, and they will need greatness in them if they are to progress the world. So there is also information on both nutritious meals and fun activities for our children. Nurtured.me also features plastic-free products that are designed to make everything that bit easier.
