61 Things We're Grateful For This Week

By The Wild Women On Top Team

It’s been a huge few weeks here at Wild Women HQ.

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.

It’s been a rollercoaster of emotions, and there’s been plenty of tears, frustration and sleepless nights.

But we know that what you focus on grows. So we are making a huge effort to practice what we preach and focus on the good – and there’s still a lot of good to be found.

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.

We hope it can help you, too.

When we went into lockdown just a few months ago, we started dreaming about where we would hike again. These are the epic local trails that made the top of our list.
We're back, baby! We're back in the wild - walking, talking, leaping, scrambling, and exploring - where we belong. As restrictions begin to ease around the country, we're seeking new, fun fitness challenges to keep us motivated, healthy and active through the chilly winter months. If you're seeking a new challenge, or you've set yourself a Big Hairy Audacious Goal, this is the secret to success.
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!
The only down side about this fabulously delicious dish is that if you turn your back, your kids will devour it. Enjoy!
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 queens are getting a good dose of nature – daily!
