I am big on work/life “balance”*
Not only have I made it my mission to empower entrepreneurs everywhere to take charge of their mental wellness, but I’m hot on it for myself too. I value family time and prioritize it wherever possible.
Meditation and exercise are non-negotiables for me, and I build time into my week for them on a regular basis. One of my core values is growth and learning, and I feed this by being a bit of a course junkie, and ploughing through the pile of personal development books on my bedside table. Holidays are planned in advance and I build flexibility into my schedule to allow for spontaneity.
I also have some esoteric interests that nourish my soul just for the hell of it. They have nothing to do with work, or my family.
But I want you to know it wasn’t always this way, and that I’m only human and do have my mad moments too! However, since learning how to master my mindset when I trained as a Cognitive Hypnotherapist, I am world’s away from the person I used to be.
* I have a problem with the idea of work/life “balance” as I think it’s an unobtainable goal. It’s always going to be a juggling act. I also believe that it’s not just about work and life, but also about self. You need to include what nourishes your soul and fills up your energy reserves.
