Is Work-Life Balance A Myth?
Is there such a thing as "Work-Life Balance"?
I BELIEVE THERE IS!
Though I prefer to call it professional and personal life harmony.
We have forgotten that relaxation, sleep and play are fundamental
to our physical and mental well being.
It is important to make them part of your health regimen;
It will help you avoid burnout.
At the same time, it is critical to stay passionate
about what you are doing
so that the quality of your service stays impeccable.
Without obsession, work eventually becomes a boring grindstone,
yet it is well known that “you can’t pour from an empty cup".
But you don't want to get obsessed by your business performance
to the point of burnout when you won't be of value to anyone.
Yes, the current situation is challenging in many aspects,
and that's why it is imperative that you take care of yourself first.
Women business owners and entrepreneurs especially
are often guilty of de-prioritizing family, friends and self care
for the sake of their business.
In addition, you may not realize that this is an issue
because you have been immersed in it for so long.
IT MAY NOT BE AN URGENT ISSUE IN YOUR MIND
BUT IT MAY BE MORE URGENT THAN YOU THINK
FOR YOUR PHYSICAL AND MENTAL HEALTH.
That's why you need a coach before your challenges become medical issues.
Are you feeling overwhelmed and unsupported?
Have you considered hiring a coach?
What will it take to recharge your batteries?
What brings a smile to your heart and to your face?
What do you love to do that you haven't found time to do for some time?
Do that this week end. The more you are able to cultivate inner peace and joy,
the better able you will be to lead with clarity and focus when Monday comes.
And reach out for support.
No! Work-Life balance is not a myth, it is attainable.
But it will take a bit of commitment.
And if you want to stop struggling, it might be a good idea to consider coaching.
Hiring a coach is an investment in you, your future, your well being and your legacy.
