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. 012 – What is self care? – It's all about the individual w/ Ben Rashleigh The Let me take a Selfie Podcast

Let’s talk about self care and what it means to practice self-care. It’s not just about general conception, by taking time out and maintenance of the mind and body and when one looks at the definition of self-care in it’s entire definition of a world. It is any deliberate individually controlled, self-initiated action with the intention to enhancing energy, health and reduce stress.  In essence self care does what it says on the jar… SELF! So, it’s all about the individual and what need for ourselves. For show notes, visit: https://benjaminrashleigh.com/ep-012-what-is-self-care-its-all-about-the-individual/
