Your Mindset – Your Self-care – Your Wellbeing

Work life balance is not a luxury, it is a necessity. In today’s society we have a lot of time pressures. We give a lot to work, our family, volunteering, getting just enough sleep, and then doing it again the next day. We call it work/life balance.

I am passionate about supporting business wellbeing and helping with three things, support-systems-success.

The reason why it is so important for me is because after many years in large corporate companies I took the leap of faith after having my son and started my own business, after 5 years (and having my daughter in this time too), I have learnt a lot but it has been difficult and there have been times when I have felt like an imposter, had anxieties around not feeling good enough, not felt successful and struggled with juggling between work and home life. A number of things have helped me to feel more confident and successful and I love sharing this with others.

One of those things is mindset, so a thought for you, from the inspirational Gandhi:

Mindset is….

Growth mindset refers to a specific state of mind which orientates human conduct towards entrepreneurial activities and outcomes. Individuals with growth mindsets are often drawn to opportunities, innovation and new value creation. This table explains mindset very well:

How might a growth or benefit mindset enable you to grow and move forward? Also how does a fixed mindset hold you back?

Self-care is so important because life can be noisy. It can be exhausting too. There are too many things vying for our attention and sometimes we inadvertently forget how important our own wellbeing is. It’s so easily done because the external noise is so, so loud. It demands our attention. And so we give it our attention. We place other people’s needs and wants ahead of our own and we get sidelined.

We forget what it is that nourishes us. We forget that we matter. Our actions tell everyone else how important they are and where we come in the pecking order – usually near the bottom, a mere afterthought.  And we wonder why we feel so disorientated and tired to the core. We’ve given everything we have and have nothing left for us. Sound familiar?

Here is an example of a self-care plan, what is on yours?

Self Care Plan

Your wellbeing is essential, we are now in June, middle of the year so a great time for planning and reflection. Well anytime is really for someone like me that loves to plan!

Planning brings new ideas, energy and motivation. Writing goals and aspirations down are even better as it can help with your accountability.

Here are some ideas on how to move forward with your goals :

  1. Think positive: being at a crossroads or needing a change can be a great thing so think positively about it.
  2. Get your head in the game, mindset is so important and if your head if not in the right place then it is very difficult to achieve.
  3. Ask yourself: if I didn’t start X, how would I feel?
  4. Ask yourself: if I did embark on X, how would I feel?
  5. Focus: don’t try to do everything all at once. The fun thing about change and achieving those goals is that it needs to be consistent, small baby steps can lead to big exciting changes.

If you need help with your focus, direction, vision, clarity of goals, putting yourself first and accountability then get in touch.
