If there was one word to describe how you feel at the minute it would be FRAZZLED!
You're snapping at the kids, tearing your hair out at work, can't work out why you keep bursting into tears or into fits of rage over the tiniest of things.
But, you'd much rather being feeling cool, calm and collected.
Well you've come to the right place. As you've found yourself here, I'd wager you'd like to make a change, to learn the skills to take you from anxious and angry to calm and relaxed.
But no matter how much you've tried....
- You can never manage to find the time to relax.
- And when you do you can't remember what it was that that self help book advised.
- You feel isolated, under pressure and like no one understands.
It doesn't matter where you are on your self development journey, you want to use your time wisely and ensure that the tools you use have a bigger impact on your own wellbeing.
You want to be fun YOU again.
You're ready to devote 1 hour a week to your self-care.
But you don't know where to start.
I know, because i've been there.
Here's what I know.....
- I believe that you have it in you to become the person you want to be. And i'm going to show you how to do it.
- I believe that you deserve to be happy, respect yourself and have others respect you and I promise to give you the tools to feel these feelings in every corner of your world.
- I also know that a bar of galaxy chocolate the size of your head and a hot bath can right the wrongs of a really shitty day.
So in short (ha ha, i'm not known for my brevity) if you want to be a calmer, happier version of the kick ass person you are, I'm here to help you.
Hiya! My name is Kendall and I am passionate about teaching stressed and anxious women how to use gardening and floristry to calm their busy minds and re-discover their pre-stressed selves.
How did I get here?
In 2018 whilst pregnant with my daughter, I had my third episode of chronic anxiety. I'd wake up in the middle of the night drenched in sweat, thoughts racing through my mind with feelings of panic overwhelming my whole body. Suffice to say it made me irritable, unpleasant to be around and very very unhappy.
I'd always found growing flowers in my garden and then creating beautiful floral arrangements with them to be a source of great relaxation for me and so in my time of need I turned to those activities.
After my daughter arrived everything changed.
I had this inner lioness that would not be ignored. I needed to do something to change the way that women were 'coping' with the extreme amounts of pressure on them, not only for myself but for my little girl; the next generation of frazzled females if I didn't take action.
So I started offering workshops, two and a half hours of un-interrupted time to think about nothing but flowers, plants and what you're doing in that moment.
They were a huge hit, but I quickly realised I could only help women who lived near to where I was holding the workshops.
So I put my thinking cap back on..........In March 2019 Mind in Bloom box was born! A monthly subscription box that teaches you the gardening and floristry skills to not only grow and arrange your own flowers but also to harness the wellbeing qualities of plants, gardening and floristry. Access to the Facebook group included in the subscription provides a sense of community and reminds you that you're not alone.
Here's what some of the Adventures with Flowers community have to say
