Rest

In the latest episode of the podcast, I recorded a solo episode sharing my self-care strategies to avoid end of year burnout.

There are a few strategies I have put in place to combat work stress and to avoid burnout, particularly as we approach the end of the […]

Solo Episode: Self-Care Strategies To Avoid End Of Year Burnout (Episode 68)

Avoid Burnout

Many of us find ourselves to be motivated at the beginning of the new year. We start each year with big dreams, big goals and big aspirations. But what happens a few months in to the year when life gets in the way? When we start to feel burnt out and exhausted? When we lose momentum and motivation? When we find ourselves in a mid-year slump? In recent years, I have developed a habit of conducting a mid-year review on my progress. What has gone well? What hasn’t gone so well? How do I intend on spending the next 6 months of the year? There are a few practices I […]

5 Strategies To Get Yourself Out Of A Mid-Year Slump (Episode 53)

Mid-Year Slump

“Life is a gift, and it offers us the privilege, opportunity and responsibility to give something back by becoming more.” – Tony Robbins. 2020 has been one of the most disruptive and challenging years yet. Many of us experienced significant chaos, disruption and uncertainty. Our plans came to an abrupt hold. Businesses closed down. People have lost their jobs and livelihoods. Many individuals experienced isolation, loneliness and adversity. It truly has been a difficult year, and I am yet to meet anyone who is leaving 2020 completely unscathed. At the end of last year, I wrote an article which spoke to my intentions for 2020. I wrote the following: As […]

5 Strategies I Use To Snap Out Of A Bad Day. “The way I see it, if you want the rainbow, you gotta put up with the rain.” – Dolly Parton. Bad days. We’ve all had them, and I’ve certainly experienced my fair share. There are certain things which happen in life – getting cut off in traffic, being yelled at by an irate customer, unpleasant interactions… the list goes on. One thing I have learned, is that we can’t control what happens to us, however we can certainly control how we respond to it. There are a few strategies I have developed over the years to help me to […]

Self-Care Strategies To Avoid End Of Year Burnout

burnout

Key strategies for avoiding burnout and optimising wellness. “I have come to believe that caring for myself is not self-indulgent. Caring for myself is an act of survival.” – Audre Lorde. The concept of working a 9-5, Monday-Friday work week is something which feels strangely foreign to me. For as long as I can remember, I have worked in roles that have demanded a lot of my time and energy. To add the podcast, this blog, brand partnerships, coaching and consulting on top of an already demanding full-time job could easily become a recipe for disaster. I have been working harder this past year than I ever have in my […]

Avoiding Burnout: 5 Strategies I Use to Reduce Stress, Overwhelm & Exhaustion

Burnout

How my life has changed over lockdown. “True Life is Lived When Tiny Changes Occur.” – Leo Tolstoy. The past 7 months have been a disruptive period for many of us. I am yet to come across anyone whose life has been unaffected as a result of the restrictions which have been put in place, or the changes which have been made. From the very beginning, I have tried to be as positive as possible, and to see this period as an unbelievably rare time to do all of the things I have wanted to do, but have either put off completely or never seemed to have the time for.

How I Get Myself Out Of A Mid-Year Slump. “We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then, is not an act, but a habit.” – Aristotle. 2020 has well and truly been a challenging year for many of us. I am yet to come across a single person whose personal or professional life has not been impacted in some way as a result of recent events. Our plans, commitments and routines have been derailed, resulting in many of us feeling overwhelmed, anxious or simply burnt out. Despite our current circumstances, I generally like to take some time out mid-year to reassess my goals for the year. What has gone well? […]

5 Ways To Bring Inner Peace Into Your Life. “If you get the inside right, the outside will fall into place. As soon as you honour the present moment, unhappiness and struggle will dissolve, and life begins to flow with joy and ease. When you act out of the present moment awareness, whatever you do becomes imbued with a sense of quality, care and love – even the most simple action.” – Eckhart Tolle. As I have continued to invest in myself and my personal development, one of, if not the most important aspects has been working on being more present, and bringing inner peace into my life. Gone are […]

5 Ways To Bring Inner Peace Into Your Life

Inner Peace Boss in Heels

“Your future is found in your daily routine. Successful people do daily what others do occasionally.” – Paula White. I’ve been working from home for about six or seven weeks now, and my daily routine has been well and truly disrupted. I have always prided myself on having a really positive and productive daily routine. I rise early, spend the first couple of hours in the day investing in myself physically, mentally and spiritually, and then begin my usual work day in the office. Like many others, self-isolation has resulted in my usual daily routine being disrupted. Whilst I was quick to create a new work from home routine which […]

How I Get Back To My Daily Routine After Disruption

“Life changes very quickly, in a positive way, if you let it.” – Lindsey Vonn. We have been living in very interesting and unusual times. Fear and negativity have certainly infiltrated the thoughts and lives of many. It is only when we silence our thoughts and make a conscious choice to rid our lives of negativity, that we can start to live a more positive life. Despite it all, I would say one of the greatest gifts I have given myself is to live a (mostly) positive life. I choose to focus on all the goodness around me. As Oprah so eloquently says, “What you focus on expands, and when […]
