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. 016 – The power from taking breaks w/ Ben Rashleigh The Let me take a Selfie Podcast

In this episode it’s all about ‘Breaks’ and the importance of breaks, and how breaks can make you more productive, efficient and have health benefits. There is a lot of research that supports taking a break throughout a working day that doesn’t involve any work, or personal tasking can improve one’s mood and support wellbeing and reduce stress.  There is also research that supports that multitasking is not as efficient and productive as when focusing on one single task at a time. So spend the next 15 mins solely focussing on the episode.
