Most people find a single job to be tiring enough, but when it comes to working mothers, there is no choice but to work both as a professional working woman and as a mother.
When it comes to Davina McCall, she seems to have a perfect grip over both her roles. Not only does she have three beautiful children who require her love and attention more than anyone else in the world, but she has also managed to create a very successful career for herself in TV as well as with her fitness projects.
For many working mothers, McCall is an inspirational figure. But many have obviously wondered: how has she been able to manage everything?
McCall does not seem to be slowing down, having launched This Time Next Year, a new series which came out only recently, and also a new special which is still in the works called Long Lost Family.
When asked about how McCall is able to manage both her professional and personal lives so seemingly effortlessly, she revealed a very basic and rather popular trick: working as a freelancer.
Of course, not everyone has the option to work as a freelancer especially if your nature of work requires continued employment, but for McCall, becoming a freelancer has been very rewarding as it has not impacted her work and also allowed her ample time to spend with her children.
According to McCall, by being a freelancer she is able to take time off from her work whenever she wants and for long periods of time.
That does not mean that she would work one day and not work the next. Instead, she plans her work in a manner that allows her to take breaks from it whenever her children have breaks from school. Hence, she takes time off during her children’s summer vacations, when there are school holidays during the term, and also on the weekends.
By aligning her work schedule with her children’s schedule, McCall is able to ensure that she is able to spend as much time with them as possible. This way, when she is working, she is completely focused on her work, and when she is spending time with her children, her work does not get in the way of that as well.
A Fitness Career
TV work is not the only income generating stream of focus for McCall. According to reports, she is also working on acquiring a qualification to become a personal trainer, but McCall said that work in that respect has been slow since her schedule has been completely booked. However, she plans on passing her qualification by the end of this summer.
Paying Attention to Her Teeth
An interesting fact about McCall’s way of life is that she pays a lot of attention to the health of her teeth. For her, oral hygiene is of utmost importance as it is an indicator of a person’s overall health. Apart from the fact that she is also the ambassador for Colgate Total, oral health has always been very important for McCall.
According to her, she pays a visit to her dentist twice every year in addition to visiting the hygienist for the same number of times. She has transferred the same oral hygiene practices to her children as well, who, according to the proud mother, have not had to undergo any fillings so far in their lives.
But all this does not mean that McCall deprives herself of the good things in life. As a lover of Banoffee pie and some other forms of sweets such as chocolate and biscuits, McCall does not mind challenging her oral and physical health every once in a while with these delicacies.
However, she does make sure to recover from the damage by undergoing an intense workout to sweat away all those extra calories. And considering the fact that she is working to become a personal trainer as well, having a rare treat should not be such a big problem for her anyway.
