Hello, I’m Antonia and welcome to Balance Through Simplicity. I’m so pleased you’re here! I’m a writer, mum of two feisty, strong-willed girls, step-mum, wife and business owner.

Simplifying my life was the thing that saved me when I was at my lowest point, struggling to juggle a young family, busy career and a million other things – all day, every day.

It came to a head one day when I broke down at work and was encouraged to go home to ‘sort myself out’. This difficult experience became the catalyst for wonderful change and I haven’t looked back!

This website is my passion project, calm space and creative outlet where I love to share what I’ve learnt in making these changes and simplifying life in case it might help you too.

About Me

When I look back on it, I think life had caught up on me without me even realising it. My days would be filled juggling my young family, managing the home and holding down my job. I was chasing, doing and achieving but at what expense? I tried to do and be ‘all the things’ but had no space for anything else. Maybe you feel like this too sometimes?

I felt stuck. I wanted to make the most of my life instead of feeling steam-rolled by it.

Learning to remove the clutter from life and choosing to make space for what mattered was how I became unstuck. I still have bills to pay, work, family and things to do… but I have a better balance and that balance can shift to whatever needs me the most. To use the name of this website, it’s balance through simplicity. Not perfect, but easier.

Decluttering my home, schedule and life, creating space for what matters and making a better life for our family – and what I’ve learnt along the way – is what I share here.

Here are are some articles you might like to get to know me better and what I’m passionate about sharing:

  • Read my story here.
  • Discover my vision for a simpler life here.
  • Learn why I think we need balance in life here.

These are some of the topics I write about and how I believe that simplicity can offer us time, space and freedom…
