Living a Crazy Busy Life?
Are you living a hectic life, rushing from one thing to the next, juggling multiple commitments, and collapsing at the end of the day?
Do you give your all at work and to other people but have no energy left over for yourself? Under pressure, do you overreact, behave badly, and regret it?
Do you try and get rid of feelings with alcohol, drugs, food, gaming, shopping, hours of Netflix, relentless scrolling or something equally unfulfilling?
Does your once sharp decisive mind no longer work quite as well? Has your life dissolved into a rut, leaving you feeling disconnected, ho-hum and blah?
Do you sacrifice your precious and much-needed downtime and quality time with the people you love, by taking work home and answering email and late phone calls?
“I feel like a new me. I’m much better at managing my thoughts and challenging emotions, and it doesn’t feel so bad being me.”
Want to move out of stress mode and connect to what really matters?
The more stressed you are, the harder it is to manage life’s ups and downs.
We think if I just keep rushing, multitasking, sleeping less, working harder and putting in more hours then success is inevitable.
But eventually, these habits and behaviours backfire and leave you heading for burnout. Perhaps you’re experiencing the pending signs of burnout right now?
- Emotional exhaustion
- Indifference to work
- Trouble staying focused
- Lack of emotional control
You can’t think your way out! You have to make some changes. But where do you start?
Work with me to:
- Laser focus you on what really matters
- Learn how to manage difficult thoughts and emotions (instead of trying to get rid of or numb them away)
- Take responsibility for what’s within your control (accept and let go of what’s not)
- Build simple effective tools into your daily life (it all starts with you)
- Create a growth mindset growth (more aware, curious, open and kind)
- Lighten up and not take yourself and your work so seriously
- Reconnect with your life (by appreciating the many small pleasures you’re probably overlooking)
- Practise self-kindness (instead of constantly beating yourself up)
- And most importantly choose new healthy behaviours (make wiser choices)
While it’s normal to want to get rid of difficult thoughts and emotions, real growth ONLY happens when you learn how to watch your mind doing its ‘thing’, and to give your uncomfortable emotions airtime.
Mindset coaching is the ‘secret sauce’ for learning how to get out of your own way and to re-align with what matters most.
My life must have seemed perfect to others.
I had the architecturally designed dream home at the beach, a husband, (then) two beautiful young boys, and a career I loved.
But I was exhausted, constantly planning the next day’s to-do list.
And while I was good at concealing how I was feeling from others, mostly I hid it from myself. When you’re lying to yourself, there’s no way you’ll ever ask for support.
The only thing I knew how to do was to keep rushing, multitasking, and pushing through.
In the evenings I’d collapse on the couch with a glass of wine (or two…) and the next morning – much like Groundhog Day – get up and do it all over again.
When I look back, I see a frazzled, depleted woman, totally disconnected from her own needs, and unable to say “no”.
The answer isn’t running away to join an ashram and even if it was it’s rarely an option. And wishing your circumstances would somehow magically change is foolish.
Living a rich and meaningful life comes down to managing your mindset. And that’s something you do have control over.
With over 20 years of coaching experience (and individual, team and executive coaching qualifications) I provide bespoke personalised support for busy professional people.
