Pushing the Limits of Self-Care

Pushing the Limits of Self-Care

Right now, one of the most challenging aspects of life that I am finding is ‘self’; time for self, putting myself first and self-care. The biggest of these is putting self-care into practice fully so that I am truly relaxed, regenerated, energized and centered...

What I have not been doing is really extending my self-care to seek maximize the benefits – I have only been skimming around the edges of self-care and have pared it back to the bare minimum. It is something I have been really feeling the effects of in the past week – I have been more tired than usual and not recharging as well with my current plan. Simply put – these actions aren’t enough for me any more...

Tackling Priorities with Self-Compassion

Tackling Priorities with Self-Compassion

I have a confession to make – the last two weeks I have pulled back the throttle at Speed of Life Coaching.

  • I haven’t kicked all of my goals.
  • I haven’t finalized a new worksheet I wanted to share with you.
  • I didn’t get last week’s blog post completed and posted.

And that’s okay.  Really – it is okay!

The School Holidays Ate my Homework

The School Holidays Ate my Homework

Many of you might have guessed this, but I'm typically pretty well organised; running around after two boys and a baby as well as running my business means that to get anything done, I need to have a multitude of lists and to make the most out of every minute. Therefore it would come as no surprise that when it came to the arch nemesis of all parents of school aged children - the School Holidays - that I had a plan.  It involved a delicate balance of travel, work, time with the kids, time to study and occasionally, time for me.  I should have known better.

Your Time is Limited...

Your Time is Limited...

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life.  Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking.  Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice.  And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.  They already somehow know what you truly want to become.  Everything else is secondary.” - Steve Jobs, Stanford University Commencement Speech 2005

That was my AH-HA moment.
