If you’re anything like me, the past two months has been a rollercoaster of emotions; uncertainty, fear, disbelief, astonishment, worry, disappointment, frustration, anger, acceptance, love, gratitude and, finally, a return of optimism. Through all this, it’s natural for motivation to fluctuate, and it’s definitely time to forgive yourself if your motivation to move and workout has all but evaporated.
But now, with restrictions easing slowly, it’s time to re-build your routine and feel fabulous again!
In these challenging times, mums (and dads) are being presented with unique challenges. Many mums are having to work from home, home-school their kids, manage the household, and care for their mental and physical wellbeing.
This week, in honour of Mother’s Day, we’re asking the kick-ass mums in the Wild Women office how they’re managing to keep fit and well in isolation. You probably won’t be surprised that all of these incredible women are getting a good dose of nature – daily!
One of the things I love most about daily Zoom meetings is the window into the home lives of my beautiful team. It's highlighted to me how differently we all live, especially at the moment.
It's become clear to me, in the last couple of weeks, that time-poor mums have been massively impacted by this crisis.

We’ve faced some of the biggest challenges we’ve ever faced as a business, and we know we aren’t alone. Fear and panic are everywhere.
But we know that what you focus on grows. So we asked our team to tell us things they are grateful for, and together we’ve come up with a list that has helped us through some of the most challenging days.
Although I have made – and continue to make - many mistakes as a parent, I have given my daughter the gift of education. She has learned how to think for herself, express herself and communicate her needs with love and respect.

Have you ever wondered what it's like to sleep in mountain huts, sandwiched between friends or strangers like sardines night after night? Our Managing Director Tania shares her first experience of hut life...
