🖤 Thinking that things will magically be different if you just keep muscling through;
🖤 Waking up even earlier to complete a one hour morning routine before your already crammed workday; or
🖤 Implementing faux self care strategies like bubble baths, massages and keeping crystals in your bra, that just don't cut it.
Instead? It's intentionally DESIGNING or redesigning the life and career you want FIRST and figuring out the right strategies that help you manage stress SECOND.
It's about integrating both work and life so that you can create sustainable work practices that allow you to recharge and refocus on what's truly important without getting to the stage of pending burnout and having to quit.
Women are socialised to be the caretakers for those around us.
Whether that be at the office or at home - we can't underestimate the emotional and mental load that you're carrying. Which can translate into time and energy spent on others.
Of course this isn't a bad thing.
But we need to do the work to rethink what really matters - which includes how you can take care of yourself in your very own work and life.
When you do this you slowly transform the quality of your life and your work.
When you align your individual choices and actions with your beliefs, you have more energy and capacity to show up and to advocate for what's right in the larger social systems that can hold women back.
To swap hard work, stress and run-of-the-mill going through the motions with focused effort and clear goals for aligned achievement (what really matters).
The vehicle? Your very own work/life design blueprint that you've lovingly handcrafted to get unstuck from the usual status quo to having energy and time to focus on what truly matters so that you can actually enjoy your life and work.
