Self-Care – OTM Success Principle # 1

 

ENERGY Management – OTM Succes Principle # 1:

It is no secret that extra sensitivity can quite often lead to stress.

What I have learned is that ENERGY Management means everything.

This is where self-care practices kick in.

 

My best tip for Self-Care is to underSTAND (support yourself in your sensitivity) and to plan as much as you possibly can around it.

As sensitives it is my own experience that we foremost need:

1) Extra down time to process our thoughts and feelings

2) Time alone for reflection, preferable in nature

3) Connection and purposeful activities with likeminded people

Of course, there is a lot more to be said about managing your energy but this would be my top 3 tips on top of my heart.

If you would like to learn more in depth tips for how to practice self-care and manage your energy, I encourage you to check out my online course Get Your Success On Track Now

You will find a whole module dedicated to self-care practices, as well as the opportunity for a 45 minutes OTM session with me, to ask any question you like and get insight into my many years of best practices for self-care.

Hitting the Wall is a good Sign

When we are going through change, we will often hit the wall!

I know I’ve hit the wall many times myself.

Then one day I sat down and made this drawing. It occurred to me that even when we hit the wall, we still have a choice.

You can choose route one and return to the old stories, or you can dig a slight whole in the wall and continue on route 2, one step at a time.

That is not to say that there will not be ups and downs, of course some days goes more smooth than others. That’s life.

But the irony is, that it is quite often when we are making the most progress that we hit the wall.

We might think of it as (temporary) setback but in truth it is progression.

Some say that it is our ego that is scared and trying to protect us from the unknown territory on the other side of the wall.

All this is just to say that hitting the wall is actually a sign of progress.

So keep talking smalls steps towards your goals 🙂

Ps. I am in the process of creating a new course called “How to Create Your New Story with the OTM Map” helping you break though the wall through narrative story telling, stay tuned, or sign up for my newsletter.

You could also join my online course Get Your Success On Track now which will help you break through the wall. A 45 minutes OTM session with me is included.
