Burnout

Burnout

What happened to me? Did life just grind me down, was I over-worked, stopped living for the moment and simply existing.

Did I lose my passion, drive and have no connection to whom I really was? Chasing success limited sleep, surviving on sugar, coffee and boozy weekends. 

Each morning repeating the mantra – Another day, another dollar and only ten hours to go. 

Countdown until my next day off or holiday. Never present, never appreciating living in the now. 

Body activate, Mind autopilot.

Repeating the same patterns, self-destruct scenarios, exhausted. 

Then it hit me – BURNOUT!

I began to understand working long hours in a negative environment comes at a price. Disconnection from myself, health and my sense of self-fulfilment. 

I had to make a change.

A pathway was opened up to explore meditation and mindfulness. The discussions were around Mind, body and spirit wellbeing.  For the first time in two years I began to feel connected to myself, take responsibility for mindset and explore finding inner peace 

While it was not immediately possible to walk away from a job where I suffered ‘Death by a Desk’ it was possible to learn it’s not selfish to take care of ME.

I began to reach out, find experts, tools, skill sets and information on how to live a life with every day bringing happiness and joy. 

I chose to create something new for myself, a new beginning, fresh start and a way forward. 

Using my free time more mindfully, exploring new networks and social groups. 

Today I have created my business and found my life purpose built on the pain and wisdom learnt during the dark time to help share inspiration, expertise and help change mindsets to live a healthy happy balanced life. 

I took me a close call to extreme burnout to shake myself, notice the signs and empower myself to make a change.

Tips to avoid burnout: 

 Self-talk – When I wake up in the morning I remind myself today is going to be an AWESOME day. How you start your day is important 
 Take time to yourself – Whether it’s a walk in the park, sitting in a quiet space or looking out at the ocean

 Look at the energy vampires – Social media, News, relationships and make changes
 Reach out and seek help and guidance
☀ SLEEP – 8 hours a night minimum (Not always possible but try your best) 
 Eat nourishing food that makes you feel alive and kicking 

 Surround yourself with like mind people that uplift you.

 Create daily rituals for sustainable success – Gratitude journals, meditation and yoga are some examples of feel-good factors.

 Exercise – Release some super endorphins 

 Do something you LOVE – Travel, write, swim – What every sets your soul on fire!

 Reignite your spark, vitality and drive and create that beautiful life YOU deserve.

Soul Search

Soul Search

As I enter this exciting new year I feel I have finally found who I truly am and understand my purpose.

When I look back at myself previous I wonder how I was satisfied completely without being ‘awake’ or practising mindfulness. 

Being ‘awake’ was not a term I was familiar with until one day I shared a post on Facebook and a friend commented ‘wow you’re awake’. Someone inside me had opened I started to understand I was on a transformational path to consciousness. I was seeing the world and others around me differently.

So I started writing into a scrapbook my thoughts, realisations, ambitions, affirmations and showing gratitude. I was introduced to meditation and a whole network of people who are educating and guiding me. This is an exciting time and I have decided to use this space to my share journey and empower other

I will be completely real and put my ego aside and speak from the soul.

Discovering who I am?

Growing up in South Wales, UK I had a good upbringing; I was happy, having a good supportive family and a big group of friends. Jobs and success flowed to me easily.

I started my career in youth work while studying my youth work degree and soon found my passion for helping others. 

At the age of 23, I was in a Corporate Office Manager position by day and Youth Club Manager role at night. Juggling two managers positions I felt I had progressed as far as I could. My relationship broke down and I made my best decision to date to explore the world.

Time to Travel

It’s been three years since I left Wales. I am living in Australia – the place where I have built a life I love. 

Since I found myself working in Fly in, Fly out Construction industry. I have had various jobs roles and opportunities and grown massively as an individual. I established myself into being known across the industry as a strong confident woman in a man dominated environment, mentoring and coaching people to make better life choices and maintain a healthy mind. 

While I worked a long 60-hour week I had the advantage of rest and recreation downtime every 7th week which allowed to me to travel and explore new ideas and concepts. I went on a mindful search of discovering myself and my life purpose. 

I have a natural drive and thirst for success and had big career ambitions that started manifesting. 

Wakey Wakey

2015 was tough: I was exhausted, suffered a drop in confidence, self-esteem, and become very anxious. While on the outside I was this confident bubbly ambition girl, succeeding and kicking goals and winning awards, on the inside, it was very different. Work pushed me to my limits. It was a difficult time to be on the other side of the world away from family and friends. I had to drag myself through each day fighting for what I believing in. 

Being mindful involves gratitude.

I strongly believe this situation guided me further into what I refer to as ‘my awakening’.

Today I fully appreciate my opportunities and the dark times I experienced. I understand everything that has happened in my life: the good and bad has brought me into my being today.

For this, I thank the universe with all of my heart for the adventure that is only just beginning.
