Feeling the Pressure

How do you handle juggling weight loss, work, family, and self-care?

It seems impossible, and to be honest sometimes it is. What I mean by this is we cannot prioritize everything at once 24/7. Think of your energy as a pitcher of water. We only have so much water to pour out. Now imagine every responsibility is an empty cup on a table. Well, if we equally pour the water into every single cup on the table, not only are we going to run out, but every cup is only going to have a small amount of water which makes virtually no difference. Now, let's choose 2-3 cups and disperse your water into them. Those cups will be full, and you will likely still have a bit left in your pitcher.

We live in a society that constantly tells you to hustle. Constantly tells you to work more, do more, go faster, and be better. Well, if we are consistently focussed on spreading ourselves thin, are we really going to be able to truly accomplish anything? Hustling can easily lead to burnout. Burnout can lead to nothing getting done which makes you fall behind. Falling behind increases stress, guilt, and overall negativity. Before we know it, what started out as us being a "boss" has snowballed into rushed half-assed work fueled by pure anxiety.

Now, I am not saying that hustle culture is evil. In fact, I like to think I'm hustling most of the time (feel free to book a nutrition consultation with Vitality Rose Nutrition). However, I have had to learn that I cannot focus on my business 24/7. I CANNOT continuously worry about my success level. When I do, my quality of work decreases because I am just trying to put out content rather than work on what I am passionate about.

Every morning take a moment before starting your day and choose 1 cup to focus on. Make that cup full of water. Pour a lot (but not all) of your energy and passion into that cup. By the end of the day, watch how much more energized you feel. Watch how accomplished you feel because you are actually going to be productive instead of being in catch-up mode. Rather than focussing on how much more you can do, focus on what accomplishment is going to make the biggest difference in your life?

Stop what you're doing, take a breath, and approach life differently. It may not get easier, but you will get a hell of a lot stronger.
