Tips and Tricks for Stress-Free Downsizing

“Over the past five years I have downsized twice, once to leave our four-bedroomed home and move a few metres away, to our converted barn. My husband and I did this when our two boys left the nest. Then, in 2015 we moved from our home in Mallorca, where we had lived for 30 years, to  a two-roomed house in Zanzibar, Tanzania.

By nature I’m an organised person, so when tackling a job such as downsizing I immediately break the task down into bite-sized chunks. I can see what the next stage will be and what issues will be faced. And that’s how I laid out this book for the reader: what you need to do before you even lift a finger, the best way to tackle downsizing and what to do when you have finished.”

How To Clean Your Home Organically

“This book covers my unique hacks for cleaning a home, and the organic products I use, so you can clean your home quickly, efficiently and safely, without missing a single corner or wasting time having to backtrack over areas missed. In it I outline easy-to-follow steps based on common sense. In the resources section, I provide links to other articles, recipes and equipment.”

The Art of Midlife Stress Busting

“A Stress Busting Artist knows that stress is part of life. You can’t avoid. Trying to avoid stress is impossible and self-destructive. Instead, we should embrace stress and  harness its energy. By decluttering your mind and painting your mind’s canvas to the best of your ability you will be able to deal with stressful events as they occur, take steps to make changes, increase your resilience, ask for help and deepen relationships with others.”



Hot Women Rock

Hot Women Rock is another collaboration with Pat Duckworth. We all need this kind of wisdom. The new book Hot Women Rock, shares stories from midlife women who overcame entrepreneurial obstacles to change their lives and be more fulfilled and happy. The first section of the book follows the Robert Dilts model of Neurological Levels. Pat takes you through an explanation of the six levels, and how they affect our choices. At the end of each chapter a set of exercises helps you apply your new skills. 21 midlife women, including me, wrote the second part of the book, where they share their personal business stories.”
