Motherhood by Yalda Alaoui

 

  1. Please introduce yourself: Name, what do you do & how many children you have.

Yalda Alaoui, Wellness entrepreneur and investor, two children.

  1. How do you manage to juggle work and life balance as a mother?

I fit in work anytime I can. I am an early riser so I often work in the morning before the day starts.

  1. What top tips would you give to any working mum?

Let go of guilt! Whether you are a stay at home mum or a working mum, both lives give an example to your children. I did both things and both are work and challenging but I believe mothers lead by example.

  1. What do you love most about London? Do you have a favourite spot with your children?

The cultural diversity! The parks, without hesitation!

  1. How do you define quality ‘me-time’?

A walk, a gentle workout and time with my friends, sharing a drink, a meal and laughing.

  1. What is your favourite & least favourite thing about parenthood?

The best thing is the love. I never knew this level of love was even possible. The worst thing is no matter what you do, you never have the guarantee your kids will turn out ok!

 

 

 

  1. 7. Tell us something people don’t know about you.

I cry watching movies, even kid’s movies. My children make fun of me and often say “come on mum, of course the hero won’t die, it’s PG!”

  1. Given we are all about embracing Motherhood, what advice would you give a first time Mum?

Just enjoy the ride. Let go of guilt, don’t strive for perfection and get as many cuddles as you can!

  1. I’m a mum and……

I thank the universe every day for motherhood, the greatest gifts of all.
