A day in the life of…

Archive for the ‘Wellness’ Category


I am constantly amazed and inspired by stories of people just like you and me who take the initiative to change their lives and follow their dreams. Day 6 of the Suitcase Entrepreneur 30 Day Blog Challenge focuses on case studies of those who transitioned to living life on their own terms. I encourage you to read more and if you haven’t joined the challenge already it’s not too late! Today’s writing prompt is:

What are my three priorities for the next 30 days that will move me closer towards living life on my own terms?

  1. Get to work! I would like my business to be solely online, a virtual resource accessible to anyone,Take Ownership anywhere. That being said over the next 30 days I need to work on writing a business plan, identifying the services I want to focus on and completing my website. I must admit I’ve struggled a bit with what services I would like to offer. Obviously I love social media marketing and defining a plan for content marketing. My strengths lie in planning and time-management, however I want to pass on what I have learned and empower my clients to reach their goals.
  2. Challenge myself! I think my biggest competition is myself and through the 30 Day Blog Challenge I have set a goal to write every single day for 30 days. This is a huge goal for me because when I first started my blog I did not have a focus, I wrote every month or so and this year I made a resolution to blog more. (It’s working!) I’m also challenging myself to run a half-marathon before the end of the year since fitness energizes me and helps me stay motivated. I’m not a runner by any means but I think discipline and training will help in other areas of life.
  3. Test it out! What I need to do next is plan an international trip, it’s time to go, my traveling feet are itching and I’m ready to explore. I’m working towards spending two weeks in New Zealand in Winter 2014, hoping from spot to stop every couple of days, meeting new friends and enjoying an indescribable experience. I plan to blog often and keep my virtual business with me along the way.
    Writing these priorities out and sharing them makes my goals a reality. Now that I’ve shared with the world now I have to focus on these dreams and make them a reality.

A couple of months ago my career transition as I went from a moderately busy marketing and production coordinator to an incredibly busy account manager. How can you not jump at an exciting opportunity and huge responsibility? I threw myself into my work and learned that, long hours, project management and short breaks for yet another cup of coffee might not be the best way to handle stress. Which is why I was thrilled to discover headspace only this afternoon. (Get some).

Headspace is an app for those of us who are stressed and need to find the time to practice mindfulness and meditation. I must admit, those first 10 minutes of meditation were…well…stressful. I can’t handle sitting still and doing nothing, even 2 minutes seems like forever! However 10 minutes later I felt relaxed, rejuvenated and ready for another round.

Calm

While my career is in health and wellness sometimes I forget its more than just eating right and staying fit, there is the wellness component which touches mind, body and soul.

What do you do to reduce stress?

Headspace. Get some.
