I have something for you today that I think we all might need. A skill to navigate stress… to sit in the fire and not get burned.
So I gave a talk recently to a wonderful group saturated with powerful women. Staring back at this group, you could just tell that they “get it done”… they get it ALL done and done well!
I feel like I can relate to these women a lot. I don’t always get it done well, but perhaps like you, I have a lot to juggle. I have to get it all done and I really can’t drop any of it.
A necessary skill these days is learning to sit in the “fire” that is the stress of a demanding and fast-paced lifestyle while not being consumed by it.
So here’s a list of things I need to do according to experts in stress management.
- 60-75 minutes of daily exercise
- 30 minutes of daily meditation
- Eat 5 or 6, 100% home-cooked, whole foods meals daily
- Get 9 hours of uninterrupted sleep at night
- Find a hobby
- No screen time after 5PM
- Do more “not doing”.
So for the rest of us mere mortals, I created a talk called “Think Like A Cavewoman”. It’s about 30 minutes long but you should check it out. This approach to stress really helps me out and I hope it will add a little needed perspective in your busy life.
We just set the date for the Spring Metabolic Cleanse: April 22nd 2014 at 6PM. You’re the first to hear about it. We will open it up to everyone else soon, and it will sell out, so book your spot. This is the best time of year for you to get the most out of this program.
Don’t take my word… read and follow one of our favorite local bloggers as she does the Cleanse for her 3rd time: Bare Beauty: Metabolic Cleanse.
