Jacqui Felgate

What is your sleep hack?

I’ve actually moved my phone away from the bedside table and I put it out of reach on the floor, on the other side of the room.

If I’m not sleeping well, I actually have to get up and make a decision to go and look at it.

Otherwise, if it’s right beside me, I wake up, briefly check it and that’s it – I’m awake for the rest of the night.

What has parenting taught you?

If your children are happy, then you’re happy.

For me, if one of my kids is upset then I’m stressed and upset.

But if they’re happy, then all is well in the world.

Luke Darcy

What is the best piece of advice you’ve been given?

I think of my dad. I’m not sure he passed on any words of wisdom, but he was just never someone who passed on any judgement.

He was just really humble and himself.

You could pick up the phone and know that he was always there.

So I think that’s probably how I’d like to be as a parent myself – just to be available but without judgement.

What is your love language?

Going for a walk every day to start the day with (wife) Bec.

That’s our thing, to take Dennis the dog for a walk and we catch up.

We’ve been doing that from the moment we met, and we sometimes have a walk in the afternoon.

Jo Stanley

What has parenting taught you?

There is no such thing as perfection and, actually, the most beautiful moments in life are the most boring and mundane – if you can just sit (and be) present with the person that you’re with.

What is the best piece of advice you’ve been given?

(Mindset coach) Emma Murray once told me, “A belief is a thought you’ve had often enough”, which has absolutely changed my life.

It made me think about how often I’ve made a thought that became a belief that wasn’t nice.

So, I’ve begun replacing those with really positive thoughts often enough so that they eventually become a belief.

Dr Nick Carr

What is your best sleep tip?

Sleep loves a routine, so the main thing is to get into a pattern.

For me, it’s shower, teeth, read, and sleep.

What is the best piece of advice you’ve been given?

I remember a teenager saying to me, “If you’re cross with your children, deal with it and get over it”.

It was the best piece of advice I ever got, and it was from a 15-year-old.

Luke Hines

How do you check in with a friend?

By being a good listener – because sometimes people tell you things without saying the words, through their actions, behaviours and energy they bring to the room.

Really being intuitive to those around you can make a massive difference.

What is the best piece of advice you’ve been given?

If you truly want to make a change, you’ve got to find that within yourself.

No one’s here to save you.

There’s obviously support around you, but if you truly want to achieve something in your life, you’ve got to wake up every day and make that happen.

Jade Kisnorbo

What has parenting taught you?

I think a lot of the time as a mum, you want to fix anything that is wrong with the outside world for your children.

But we’re trying to build resilient, strong generations to come.

So, I like to just listen to my girls and be there for them because that’s really, at the end of the day, what we’re here to do. Guide but listen.

How do you show love?

I really like to tell people what they mean to me – and I’m not scared to.

And also through acts of service.

I love to take people out – have an experience to show what people really mean to me.

Gerald Quigley

What is your best sleep tip?

Get into a routine.

Set a time for bed, stick to it.

Make sure you’re comfortable.

Give the person you’re lying beside a kiss.

Never go to bed in a bad mood; never go to sleep in a bad mood – it’s not worth it.

What is your bedtime routine?

My wife and I always have a cup of tea together every night, no matter where we’ve been and even if we’re home at midnight – just to finish the day and have a bit of discussion on what’s been going on.

Sarah Davidson

What is the best piece of advice you’ve been given?

Worry is like a rocking chair because it gives you something to do, but it doesn’t get you very far.

Sometimes you need to worry but most of the time, it’s just worrying about the future or the past or things you can’t change – and life is too short to be consumed by it all the time.

How do you check in with a friend?

Touch base with your friends in whatever way you think that friend will respond to.

Some people will call or text, and some need an indirect or direct approach.

It’s knowing what they need at that moment, and reminding people that you’re there for them.

Zoe Bingley-Pullin

What are your top mental health tips?

It could be as simple as meditation and any stress-reduction practice that resonates, such as yoga, being in green space, and deep breathing.

I think it’s also important to celebrate every little win and not be too hard on yourself.

What has parenting taught you?

Patience! I’m also learning so much from the information that my daughter brings home and shares with me.

I always try to validate my daughter for what she is sharing, and empower her for her own input and decision-making.
