We are facing over-consumption and information overload. It slowly creeps in in the most subtle way, and you don’t even realise you’re doing it until you find yourself mentally drained and incredibly unproductive.
Let me tell you a story. I’ve always wanted to be a writer. When I moved to journalism I turned into an uncontainable source of ideas. Creating is my second nature. I come up with ideas every other day.
However, sometimes the best thing we can do is have a break and move away.
Talking about money can be though, and sometimes embarrassing, especially when you are in your twenties and well, you are not a pro at juggling with the whole financial planning. Let’s make a little test here: if you were asked to show a stranger 3 of your bank statements, how much would you feel conscious about their opinion from one to ten?
As some of you may know by now – either from my Facebook page or my Instagram shots of sunny Italian landscapes – I am taking 3 weeks off. Almost, well kinda. I am spending 3 weeks in Italy to visit friends and family, and I will be having a proper week off at the seaside *might have to leave the laptop at my mum’s to be sure that happens*.
Yeah, I am a WORKAHOLIC, but I am also great at planning. So I thought I’d share with you a few top tips for when it’s holiday time and, as an boss lady, you struggle with the idea of actually taking time off.
As you know, last week I wanted to share with you a few things I learnt on Instagram, so I decided to host a webinar.
On the same morning my internet connection disappeared.
My webinar hosting service decided it wasn’t a good idea to record the class.
I mistakenly uploaded the video on the wrong YouTube channel.
I had problems with embedding the YouTube video.
Three months ago, I would have been curled up in a ball in a corner, blaming the Universe.
Today instead, I am taking notes and giving myself a big hug for every little hiccup. Remember we talked how you can virtually make it impossible for you fail? This is exactly the same concept. There are three things you should do when having a big, fat ‘tech hiccup’.
Aside from scrolling Instagram and Twitter *coffs*, I am always, for one reason or another, login on a website. Unlocking my laptop. Or my phone. At least around 20 times a day. So why not using my password to remind me of my affirmations?
This is why roughly 70% of business and health coaches have coaches (I did a little research here). There is so much to keep up with, and impatience, stress, unworthiness alternate with successes, celebrations, and power.
Slumps can be tough, and they can translate into stagnation. Letting go of your limiting beliefs can help you overcoming that.
