Well-being and self-care are familiar terms for us. There is a lot of noise in this arena - some hugely positive inspiration and some less helpful ideals. As we try to keep up with the latest well-being trends, my fear is that ‘well-being’ has lost a bit of meaning to us as individuals. We’re spoon fed top tips, ‘must dos’ and recommendations. Insta influencers share their routines to live a balanced life and it's all too easy to compare our routines to theirs.
Rarely do we look at what well-being means to us personally, as we skip to the next quick-fix to save us from our fraught schedules and fast-paced life-styles. Well-being is deeply personal to you. What works for you, will be different to what other people need.
"You can not pour from an empty cup"
But when did you last take a real look at what well-being means to you? Really think carefully about that. You may not grasp the answer at first glance.
2020 has left many of us feeling drained and questioning that which is important. For the first time, many re-evaluated relationships, routines, work and wellness. This has enabled us to take a new look at what works and what doesn’t. This has also added some confusion and disconnect from ourselves.
Instead of rushing into new year fads and routines, why not take a step back to reconnect with what well-being truly means to you and for you.
With a new perspective, my ‘reconnect to well-being’ programme helps you define how you want your self-care to look. It is a six week programme to help you unlock your relationship to your own well-being, the things that bring you joy, how to integrate them into your life, the obstacles that have stood in your way and will provide you with accountability to help you take your new well-being plan forward.
Each week you will receive a workbook and activities, plus a weekly workshop to deepen your understanding and your reflections.
Starting on 5th January 2021, full details are here.
