Ensuring I start the day in the right frame of mind has been a lifesaver. In my case, the Podcast ‘On Being’ has been instrumental. The host, Krista Tippet, interviews some of the most beautiful, intelligent and interesting people, but in a gentle and humbly inspiring way. An hour with one of these on my morning walk helps me focus my mind and start to spark positivity.

With the support of my husband, I haven’t been alone as he was off work for two months which helped as we welcomed our second baby, days before the lockdown commenced.

Bronwyn Anderson


“I’m Bronwyn, the voice behind Mama on the Run. I am a practising physiotherapist, wife and mom of two. My kids are two and four years old and while becoming a mom has been the most incredible blessing it has also made me aware of the silent struggles a lot of young moms face.

My blog is also two years old and is essentially just my documentation of the happy chaos that is my life. I explore my passion for self-care and self-improvement while navigating the turbulent waters of motherhood and trying not to lose the person I was before it all. I love running, reading, good food and wine.

My journey from couch potato to marathon runner saved me from a point of absolute burnout and is something I have also shared a lot about in the past. I love using my blog to support local small businesses and am passionate about all things #proudlysouthafrican.”

A long bath and a good podcast is definitely my go-to treats for me to find a moment’s peace and manage the rollercoaster of emotions. Even if the gummy bears have to babysit my kids for me to get out this time, I feel like it’s an investment in our happiness!
