Are you a stress head? It’s probably your own fault! 

 June 7, 2013

Lean in or lean out?

… who cares, do what is right for you and your family BUT DO NOT believe that life as a working mum has to be a struggle.

If you think that feeling tired, overwhelmed and overworked is just something you have to accept when you have kids and a job or business well I’m sorry but that is why you are stressed, it is your own fault! If you think it was meant to be a struggle then it becomes a self fulfilling prophecy. WAKE UP!!

Not only does it NOT have to be like that but if you are putting everyone elses needs in front of your own then not only are you affecting your health but feeling like that affects your moods, your thoughts and your family. So if you are justifying it by telling yourself its all for your family well its about time you got your head out of the sand and looked at the bigger picture.

Have I got your attention?

I hope so because sometimes we need a kick up the backside!

I got one yesterday from my mentor because I hadn’t done something we’d discussed. Would she have given me a good talking to if she didn’t care? No she knew my self doubt about something was getting in my way and she cared enough to give me a piece of her mind.

I care about you! Whether we have met or not I care about the stressed out, overwhelmed, frustrated, self critical women that are part of this community


So what are you going to do about it?

The chances are there is no quick and easy solution to your problem or at least not one you can see or care to explore BUT I can promise you there is a way forward if you keep looking and deal with the negative voices in your head telling you have to do some things or that you aren’t good enough, clever enough etc to do something. Life improvement takes time which is why I don’t do single coaching sessions. I work with people for a minimum of 3 months while they address the root cause. But while you are  putting stepping stones in place to get wherever it is you want to be then there are lots and lots of ways to mimimize the stress or guilt or overwhelm.
