FACT IS: "It's not a matter of IF life will throw obstacles and hurdles at you... it's WHEN."
And more than that, if you don't have the strategies in place to cope (and bounce back), then you WILL find yourself struggling to some extent.
You see... I have counselled people from all walks of life (surgeons, managers, truck drivers, sales executives, miners, accountants, teachers, nurses, administrative assistants, students, etc) and the one thing that remains the same is they are all just normal people trying to live a happy and fulfilled life but something went wrong in their career, relationships, health or finances.
The thing is, because they didn't have the skills ingrained into their subconscious (by the way most people don't) they found themselves lost, anxious, depressed, overwhelmed, angry or powerless.
And throughout my years of counselling, I've come to realise one of the best lines of defence for protecting yourself in all the big areas of life (career, relationships, health and finances) is to create and implement a self-care plan.
That's why when COVID19 started to dramatically change the way we live and interact, I realised it was my duty to guide people through putting their own self-care plans together so you can not just survive but even find a way to thrive now and post-COVID.
So, please... before you leave, take a moment to reconsider how much your wellbeing can mean to you.
Now I have been working in the field for 20 years now and I can assure you there is no better thing you can do for yourself and your family then to make sure you make the time to take care of yourself. After all, as someone once said, "if you don't make time for your wellness, you will be forced to make time for your illness.
