health, happiness and the art of being
Hi, my name is Linda Parkinson-Hardman and I’m the owner (or is it lessee?) of the healthy happy woman blog and I love to stop and natter over a cup of tea, so why don’t you join me? That’s it, settle down with your favourite afternoon tipple and let’s start a journey into empowerment.
I’m a transformational coach, women’s health advocate, writer, and I love working with people and technology. I’m passionate about empowering people to take control of their health, happiness, well-being and success and I love to know what makes people tick.
So go on, why not join me for a while and let’s share a part of each other’s life journey for a while.

Getting good quality, helpful information can sometimes feel like looking for a message in a bottle on a beach. With my regular newsletters, free downloads and other helpful handy hints, you need never go searching again!
Each week I’ll send you a newsletter about something that has occurred to me this week about how the world and life works. And then monthly, I’ll send out something useful for you to download related to the specific information topics you’re interested in.
