“Is it possible we all feel this way?”
On January 2nd we held our first Her Corner meeting of the year, and immediately I felt something different – momentum, yes, motivation, plans and ambition, check, check, check, but something else too. I noticed a high amount of anxiety and stress, along the lines of: ‘I don’t have enough time to get everything done, I don’t have enough time for me, I need a break, I’m worried about burning out, I’m so tired of the daily grind.’ Perhaps, I thought, this was unique to this particular group. And then the month progressed, and Talmar, Jenn, Maxine and I ran 10 more groups, and low and behold, this was a theme coursing through all of our Her Corner groups.
Maybe it was a combination of post-holiday blues coupled with the New Year sense responsibility to do something differently in 2013 than we had in 2012. Either way, we knew right away, this wasn’t a theme about productivity, better strategies, getting more organized – this was a conversation about taking care of ourselves. Making sure that our business didn’t consume our lives, and that our lives (our health, our hearts, and our heads,) were happy too.
We asked our Her Corner members whose businesses are focused exclusively on wellness and stress management to share some of their favorite articles on how we can take better care of ourselves via fitness, relaxation, yoga, nutrition, and wellness to maintain the strength we need to run these businesses. Below to the left are some of the articles we selected that touch on these topics. We also checked our Her Corner private network for offers that Her Corner members were making to other members. Below to the right are some of the offers from our wellness-industry members made exclusively to other Her Corner members – a lovely way to find the support we need within the Her Corner community!
From all of us here at Her Corner, we hope you will enjoy learning from your fellow members and maybe even take advantage of one of their offers!
Here’s to good health in business and in life in 2013!
