Five Workday Exercises For When You’re Feeling A Little Burned Out On Client Work

Five Workday Exercises For When You’re Feeling A Little Burned Out On Client Work

A few weeks back, a client emailed me to ask for some support and encouragement as she was feeling a little burned out and overwhelmed by her client workload...

I emailed back some workday exercises that I’ve found useful for whenever I’m feeling a little disconnected, or overwhelmed, or fatigued by my client work. As much as we love serving our clients as big-hearted service based creatives, there’s no denying that from time to time we can get a little burned out along the way. 

If you’re currently feeling in a slump with your client workload, I have five exercises for you today to hopefully help you reconnect to the joy in your work and find some clarity and energy moving forward...

For 2017, I want to try something a little different over here on the blog...

During the second half of 2016 I dabbled with sharing some snippets of my day-to-day life over on Instagram Stories, but ultimately I realised that I'm just way happier and more present in my life when I have no social media apps connected to my phone. As much as I know that social media just isn't for me, I also know that I do want to share a little bit more of my life online as I don't want things to be all business, business, business without actually sharing the more personal and life-related stuff too. So my plan is to end each month this year with a more stripped back blog post than usual with some photos and highlights from the month that's just come and gone and also some intentions for the new month ahead too!

A big part of January was just about getting back into the swing of things in work and life after taking a couple of weeks off at the end of December. Alongside days spent working on my business and on calls with my awesome clients, we also filled our month with some mini UK city breaks and day adventures too to help ward off the January blues and start the year off as we mean to go on - with as much living as there is working!

So to kickstart today's post, here's a little snapshot of some of my highlights from January...

5 Things To Read & Listen To If Your Health Is Kicking Your Business’s Ass Right Now

5 Things To Read & Listen To If Your Health Is Kicking Your Business’s Ass Right Now

Sometime’s, our health is going to kick our business’s ass.

Building and running a business is enough of a challenge at times, but when you add health struggles into the mix it can be even more of a battle to keep your head above water along the way.

Whether it’s through a chronic illness, or an unexpected health crisis, or anything and everything else in-between, sometimes the struggles and battles our minds and body’s face can affect our ability to get stuff done and make things happen in our work.

And it can be heartbreaking. I’ve had many days where I’ve wondered: if I wasn’t living alongside illness, how much more would I be able to get done each day? Would I feel happier in my work and my life? 

But there’s also joy to be found too. Living with illness has, without a doubt, been my catalyst for more intentional and wholehearted living - living alongside the limitations my health struggles can bring has taught me to prioritise what truly matters most to me in life, and to not waste time on the things that don’t matter along the way. And the fact that I’m able to work for myself and manage my health on my own terms is something I’m so damn grateful for every single day.

So if your health is kicking your business’s ass right now, I want to share with you 5 things from around the web that I’ve found encouraging, insightful, and comforting in my own journey along the way so far. My hope is that they may be able to be the same for you too.
