When Business is Quiet (Part 2)

Cast your mind back to August 2018 when I wrote the post ‘When Business is Quiet’.

I wrote about how when business is quiet we go into a crazy panic that business is failing and that the…

“reality is shortly it will be chaos again and I’ll be mega busy and I’ll wonder why I didn’t stop and take a break whilst I had the chance”.

Well, I wish I’d bloomin’ listened to myself. What a few months it’s been! If you have your own business, are trying to juggle kids and fit in an actual social life, you’ll completely understand where I am right now.

I had my quiet period, I did not relax. I had my panic that the business was doomed. I worried. And then boom!! It got crazy again.

It’s nearly Christmas though, so it’s time to relax. But business is getting a little quiet, what if it’s doomed…..

And the cycle carries on, ha ha! x

Your Mental Health Matters

I have been working closely with The Healthy Work Company over the last year; producing their business advertising. They specialise in Mental Health for businesses. I have learnt A LOT. Putting this into action though is a whole different story.

So many of us work too hard, stress too hard, play too little and sleep too little. We focus on work, because that’s what we think we need to do to survive (and let’s be honest, we need to pay the bills!). But we can’t survive if we don’t look after and focus on ourselves first. We need to learn to moderate, prioritise and take perspective. We are no use to anyone if we run ourselves down.

This recent design was for a Safety and Health Expo. Imagine your wellbeing and all the pieces that make up your wellbeing… could you keep the tower intact whilst withdrawing key aspects?
