5 Tips For Better Self-Care

It can be difficult to make time for self-care in our busy schedules. We run from one commitment to another, filling every gap in our life with work, study, family and social events. The chaos of modern life makes it even more important that we take the time to care for our individual wellbeing, both physically and mentally. If you are struggling with your own self-care, consider these five tips to improve your habits. 1. Add self-care to your normal routine When planning your weekly schedule, make sure that you have time for self-care. Cementing its place in your routine means that you will be more likely to commit to self-care as you will have allocated time specifically reserved for it.

5 Reasons Setting Goals is Important in Every Area of Life

When it comes to most areas of life, people tend to float around and embrace the idea of whatever happens, happens. But here are 5 reasons why setting goals is important, no matter what you’re talking about, whether it’s work, play, or even relationships. 1. Goals keep you focused. Imagine a ship setting sail without a destination in mind—as it traveled wherever the winds take it, supplies would eventually run out, and the crew would probably have to resort to cannibalism in order to survive. Okay, so maybe a lack of goal setting won’t yield such dire results, but you certainly won’t get anywhere specific if you don’t have a plan. Whether you’re talking about work, hobbies, or relationships, setting a goal will keep you moving towards success and fulfillment, without veering off course. 2. Goals help you make a plan of action. When you know how much you’ve accomplished, you can understand how much you need to achieve and pace yourself accordingly. For example, if yo…

Lessons Men can Learn from Women in 2021

Lessons Men can Learn from Women in 2021 by Sara Simmonds As a Conscious Innovator and Impact Entrepreneur, my goal is empowering others to collectively rise. We have forgotten that the best ways humans perform is through collaboration, by empowering and shining a light on others, you are in turn, empowering and shining a light on yourself. Be direct, be honest, but be reassuring, create safe spaces where people share their feelings, their vulnerabilities. For too long, in a masculine view culture, it has not been deemed acceptable to share how we really feel, but what I find is the secret of your supercharged growth is through allowing fearful feelings of shame, self doubt, or worry. I encourage conscious leaders through my impact training: the "Your Real Power is You Mentorship Program" to share how they really feel, because when you address your fears, and look them in the eye, you can deal with them, and in your fears, are you secrets to supercharged growth, …

It’s hard to eat right and make time for exercise, or even get enough sleep when you’re working 12 hours a day. The problem is that by ignoring those healthy habits, you may be shooting yourself in the foot. Let’s look at how your health and your financial success are linked. The link is easiest to see when your health isn’t where it should be. Think about the last time you had a bad cold or some back pain.
