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 share what I’ve learnt in making these changes and simplifying life in case it might help you too.
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.
I wasn’t enjoying life, being fully present for my family or getting any time for myself. One tiring day just led into the next. It certainly wasn’t how I’d expected and hoped life would be like.
I felt stuck. I wanted to make the most of my life instead of feeling steam-rolled by it.
I wondered if I was doing something wrong or maybe this was just what life was all about. Maybe you feel like this too sometimes?
Facing some uncomfortable truths about how my life had reached this point was a real turning point. I had bills to pay, little kids who needed me and plenty of things in life that I couldn’t control.
What I could do was simplify my life as much as possible, remove the clutter in all its shapes and forms and give myself breathing space in my heart, mind, home and schedule. Read more about how I simplified my life.
A simpler life and more space paved the way for a better life, full of things that we love and value and less of what just brings us down.

I hope that by sharing my experiences and what I’ve learnt over the years, I can help you create a life that’s more on your terms. A life that’s simpler and freer but, most importantly, a life where you are the author of your own story.
