Exercise in Laura’s opinion, is the answer to everything! Through every single stage of her life, exercise and wellness played a huge part in getting her through life’s challenges. It allowed her to fly through the divorce of her parents and It combatted loneliness when her siblings left home at the same time . It gave her confidence as a teenager so that she was able to deal well with all the struggles girls face. It gave her energy, and a productive and patient mind to deal with all the issues you face at work when dealing with people and stressful situations. It was what got her through a separation and the loneliness when her children are with their Father. And now, it gives her ‘my space.’ A space to ‘chill her out’ if the day has been difficult and the children testing. It gives her something to focus on if things at home aren’t good. It gives her power and control back so that she feels like she can still be ‘herself’ and not just a Mum. It gives her a whole heap of energy to take the day on with pure joy so that she can be the big kid and get her kids moving when they are sluggish and need some ‘oomph’. It helped her feel supported by given her friendships, and life experiences that she wouldn’t have had if she had not had her exercise. This is why she feels sh MUST pass this gift of exercise on to all the other mothers. As exercise can help at every stage of life!
