MEET OUR CONTRIBUTORS
HARRIET MERRY is a full-time Mum, looking after Gil, four and Ferdy, six who she flexischools. She writes about how it works for her family on page 45. “We live in Staffordshire with my husband and are trying to grow our own veg (although this week our beetroot has died,
boo), to cook and eat sustainably, think about the environment and to get outside as much as possible. However we have also been known to stay in and watch Star Wars films all day!”
SUZY READING is a psychologist and yoga teacher who believes strongly in the power of self-care. “Whether it was grief, sleep deprivation or post natal depression, or a combination of all, I really struggled as a new mum. With great support, a dedicated self-care routine, and my own unique strategies, I am back to being vibrant! I know how tough it can be. I understand the challenge to claw back some time for you.” She writes a Family Guide to Happiness on page 26.
