Top 10 Tips Every Mother Should Tell Her Daughter

The important life lessons to live by.

Have you ever listened to advice from your mother or inherited her well-being regimen, or did you dismiss it as being outdated and irrelevant to your know-it-all and too-cool-for-school life?  

I don’t know about you, but at the age of 52, I still hear myself saying, “I wish I had listened to my mother.”  But at the same time, I am glad I chose a different path when it came to looking after my health and well-being.

My mother was a very heavy smoker, but if she had ever caught me smoking, I would have got a clip around the ear!

Avoiding the Classic: Do as I Say, Not as I Do

So how do we inspire our daughters to lead a healthy balanced life and change that narrative?

I am sure we have all grown up on the wisdom and advice of our mums and the generations before them, lessons that will stay with us forever and keep guiding us. I believe that before we can teach our daughters, we must first make this commitment to ourselves.

Mothers have an incredible influence, good and bad, on their daughters’ lives. From an early age, they look up to us, listen to and pick up on our day-to-day habits — habits which can be compounded by social media. 

The good news is that the quality of information about women’s health is finally catching up compared to our mothers’ and grandmothers’ time. Media — social media in particular — is more accessible and provides us with a lot more research and resources once you sift through the rubbish. 

I am hoping that my generation is the last to get fooled by the quick-fix fad diet industry and crazy exercise routines and that, with a better understanding and background knowledge, women can start to better appreciate how their bodies function and what is needed.

“The only way that a mother can truly be present, engaged, connected, and nurturing with her child is if she is present, engaged, connected, and nurturing with herself,” writes Julie Burton, author of The Self-Care Solution: A Modern Mother’s Must-Have Guide to Health and Wellness. “The only way she can relate to herself is if she does what she needs to do to care for herself in an honest and meaningful manner. This is the true essence of self-care for mothers.”

Your words and actions impact your daughter more than you think. You have a lot of power to shape their attitudes, values, and behaviours.

Words to Live By

So, let’s look at some wise words of wisdom fro, amazing mothers here in the UAE and further afield. 

1. The overriding thought I have, as my daughter is now just 13, is to pass on to [girls] that they always —whatever happens in life — have everything they need within themselves to be happy and content. Trust your instinct always.


2. Learn about who you are and what you need. You are born as an individual and your needs will always be different from the next person’s. Nurture your mind and body; you care for them, they will always show up for you.  


3. My advice to my daughter and all young people comes from the wise words of Oscar Wilde “Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.”

4. Keep exercising your whole life, it’s medicine for both mental and physical health.

—Michelle, UK

5. Always speak up. I will always have your back. 


6. I would tell her not to repeat my mistakes when it comes to health, wellness, and beauty. I always thought it was ok to eat unhealthily and not exercise when I was young, thinking I would stay the way I am for many years to come. Only, age tells you differently. It is important that she adopts a lifestyle that keeps not only her body fit but also her mind. 


7. It is important that as mothers we walk the walk instead of lecturing them about their lifestyle, sharing a passion or an activity and choosing the right food when dining out, but above all, enjoy every experience.

8. Develop a healthy lifestyle from an early age. You should not wait until you decide to get married or be a mother to do so. Investing in your health is the best investment you will ever make in your life. You can do that by always eating healthy, letting exercise be a routine in your life.”   


9. Make exercise and workout a part of your daily routine and consume the right food.


10. Let your daughter know that every girl goes through getting her periods and looking after their health and well-being plays an important role in PMS symptoms and will keep her hormones balanced.  It’s okay to exercise whilst on a period; you can have some of your best training days! 


“Always remember you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars and change the world.” 

Harriet Tubman

We all want our daughters to have a well-balanced approach to life. This can take hard work and perseverance. Cultivating a strong, healthy mind and body and having someone in their corner providing them with the right advice and guidance can only help shape their destiny. Thankfully, the world is changing, and women have a stronger voice; they are more confident, believing they can accomplish whatever they set their minds to. 

“I don’t want my daughters to follow in my footsteps. I want them to take the path next to me and go further than I could have ever dreamt possible.”

Unveiling the Power of Connection: The Impact of Relationship Counselling on Love and Harmony

Harmony Through Counselling

Relationships are an integral part of our lives, and they can bring us immense joy and fulfilment. However, they can also be a source of stress, conflict, and pain. When faced with challenges in our relationships, it can be difficult to know how to navigate them and find a resolution. This is where relationship counselling comes in.

In this article, we will explore the power of connection and the impact of relationship counselling on love and harmony. We will delve into the benefits of seeking counselling, the role of anger management in relationships, and how relationship counselling in Brighton can help you and your partner strengthen your bond.

The Importance of Connection in Relationships

The Foundation of Love and Harmony

Connection is the foundation of any healthy relationship. It is the bond that brings two people together and allows them to build a life together. When we feel connected to our partner, we feel understood, supported, and loved. This connection is what allows us to weather the storms of life and come out stronger on the other side.

The Impact of Disconnection

On the other hand, when we feel disconnected from our partner, it can lead to feelings of loneliness, frustration, and resentment. This disconnection can manifest in various ways, such as lack of communication, lack of intimacy, or constant arguments. If left unaddressed, it can lead to the breakdown of the relationship.

The Benefits of Relationship Counselling

Relationship counselling is a form of therapy that focuses on improving communication, resolving conflicts, and strengthening the connection between partners. It can be beneficial for couples at any stage of their relationship, whether they are just starting out or have been together for many years.

Improved Communication

One of the most significant benefits of relationship counselling is improved communication. A counsellor can help couples learn how to express their thoughts and feelings effectively and listen to each other without judgment. This can lead to a deeper understanding of each other and a stronger connection.

Conflict Resolution

Conflict is a natural part of any relationship, but it is how we handle it that can make or break a relationship. Relationship counselling can provide couples with the tools and techniques to resolve conflicts in a healthy and productive manner. This can prevent small issues from turning into larger ones and strengthen the bond between partners.

Strengthened Connection

Through counselling, couples can work on rebuilding their connection and strengthening their bond. This can involve exploring each other’s needs, values, and goals, and finding ways to support and nurture each other. A stronger connection can lead to increased intimacy, trust, and overall satisfaction in the relationship.

The Role of Anger Management in Relationships

Anger is a natural emotion, and it is normal for couples to experience anger towards each other at times. However, when anger is not managed effectively, it can cause harm to the relationship. This is where anger management and relationship counselling can be beneficial.

Understanding the Root of Anger

Anger is often a secondary emotion, meaning that it is a reaction to another underlying emotion. In relationships, anger can stem from feelings of hurt, fear, or frustration. A counsellor can help couples identify the root of their anger and address the underlying emotions.

Learning Healthy Coping Mechanisms

In relationship counselling, couples can learn healthy coping mechanisms for managing anger. This can include techniques such as deep breathing, taking a break from the situation, or using “I” statements to express feelings. These tools can help couples communicate effectively and prevent anger from causing harm to the relationship.

Building Empathy and Understanding

Anger can often be a result of a lack of understanding or empathy towards our partner’s perspective. Through counselling, couples can work on building empathy and understanding towards each other. This can lead to more compassionate and productive communication, even in times of conflict.
