A few weeks ago, I took some quiet time for 24 hours. During that time I discovered an unexpectedly compelling and captivating book Choose Yourself, in which I discovered that the author, James Altucher, had some great insight into burnout.
Not only did he provide a really interesting take on burnout, but James has a writing style that makes you want to keep reading just one more page, even if you don’t agree with all that he is saying.
This man knows how to string an engaging sentence together and he had me hooked from page 1 right through to the end. Continue reading
Over the weekend, I decided to take a 24 hour hiatus. I had been desperately searching for the sound of silence for a few months and I couldn’t wait any longer.

Do you listen to the needs of your body in those times and are you aware of the stress indicators that are trying to get your attention?
From 2005 to 2010 I ran my own small business – the wrong way! The amount of stress I experienced as a result of not taking care of my own needs in the process was debilitating and a life changer (actually in the end for the better).
I had to reach an enormous low – that of bankruptcy, burnout and a relationship breakdown to really take a serious look at my life. Continue reading
Oh the irony of it all. I had wanted to write a post on how to relieve stress in just two minutes, to help to bring you back into balance quickly after a stressful event.
Just before I started writing it, I had an awkward exchange with someone that caused my “stress levels” to rise. I felt my blood pressure go up, my heart rate increase and I felt shaken up.

So, I straight away put into practice some of these valuable yogic breathing and other calming tools that I have been using these last few years. Continue reading
