How many of us are managing multiple life roles these days and having the juggling act of avoiding that all too common burn out. All while still putting the time and focus into what is most important yourself, family and loved ones.

In this episode we have a chat with Katrina about how she person handles this all too present situation on a daily/ weekly basis.

Some little pearls from our chat:

The importance of Time and Space

Time = You are in charge of your own time

Space = What do you to give your self space in your day

Equals the management of you

Fuel, Fill and Rest

Fuel your tank – What drives you? At the start of the day, whether its writing or recording your thoughts, unpack everything in your head and start to map it out. Dump the thoughts to create excess mental spaceSo then you are fuelled and clear headed for the day. As well as your work will be half done when your ready for it during the day as you have started the process earlier on.

Fill your tank – find something to you get through the day, it doesn’t just need to be physical fuel. Mental fuel is equally as important. – are they articles, new themes and theories or just surrounding yourself with others that stand beside you and give you energy?

Rest your tank – Give something back to yourself at the end of the day. Have a laugh, spend time with those that matter most, take daily time outs, meditate or even mindful movement. 

Ep. 022 – Knowing your worth – The Self-Worth Movement w/ Farah Mak The Let me take a Selfie Podcast

Initially the self-wort moment was created from a poem Farah wrote called she shines which was love letter to herself and a call to arms. Farah even had a vision to turn the poem into a short film, knowing she could touch and change many lives. After years, her vison came to light with the short film now in pre-production as well as a feature film around multiple stories to be released in 2022. Self-worth can be stifled by many things; trauma, abandonment, bullying, sickness, grief and so much more. Through Farah’s road to self-validation was not easy. Regaining her self-worth was transformational. It helped her achieve hopes and dreams, and she wants to share this with women and girls around the world and to empower and understand their true worth.   For show notes, visit: https://benjaminrashleigh.com/ep-022-knowing-your-worth-the-self-worth-movement/
