We all have the same 24-hours per day to work with, but we don’t all have the same responsibilities. So how do we fulfill each of the roles we have whilst ensuring our self-care is intact?
When I wrote my first published book, Suck It Up or Change, it was an opportunity to shed some of the baggage I had been carrying; the guilt, the resentment, even some hate. As you may already know, emotions tend to reflect back onto us so you can imagine how I felt about myself feeling all these negative emotions about others & life itself. And that’s how the 7F Principles I now live by came to transform how I chose to live my life.
Right out of the gate I would say yes… but then you would expect me to as a Self-care Coach!
The truth is, I embed self-care principles in all areas of my personal life and my work, whether I am leading Nordic Walking classes, Personal Training clients, Nutrition Coaching or Mindset Coaching; every single one of these avenues lead to increased self-care and that leads my clients to making healthier life decisions that transform their experience of life (over time).
And what makes my work worthwhile is when I get to share my client’s stories because it is their experience and outcomes that remind me how important this work is. So here is one such story:
I’m a bit of a fan of New Amsterdam, the hospital drama on Amazon. There is something captivating about the interactions between staff members, hospital patients and the hierarchy. And I love the diversity of the team, each with their own unique strengths, imperfections and outlooks.
Having recently watched the last episode of series 2, there was an interesting interaction around the topic of self-care.
I was blessed to be shortlisted this year for the Whole Life Activation Awards in the Health & Wellbeing category.
