Actionable Tips For Dealing With Mental Health Issues at Work

Actionable Tips For Dealing With Mental Health Issues at WorkBy Robert Palmer

I’ve struggled with severe anxiety and depression over the years. For me, it’s been something that I can control fairly well. However, when I jumped into the world of a professional chef, those fronts I put up in every other place of work ceased to exist. Anxiety and depression hit me hard. During those month, my confidence plummeted and so did my overall self-worth and well-being. I began to notice myself spiraling into a state of repetitive depression and was experiencing unhappiness in many ways.

This does not have to be the case for everyone! Living with a mental health condition is definitely not easy but it can be manageable. After working in a make or break type of workplace, I have identified many things that I did incorrectly that were causing me more and more grief. Consider the following tips as my way of sharing what I learned through this process.

Take your breaks, even on your busiest days.

No matter how busy you are, it’s important to use all of your break time. Realistically the harder you work, the more your mind and body need a break. I used to work up to thirteen hour shifts at restaurants without taking a break. (more…)

How Self-Trust is the Secret to Success

How Self-Trust is the Secret to SuccessBy Kelly Robbins

Your relationship with yourself is the most important relationship you have. It is, in fact, the foundation of every other relationship you form. Relationships with family, clients, friends, business partners, children …

The level of self-trust you have is particularly important when you are an entrepreneur creating fresh tracks in this world – making an impact in the life of yourself and others.

Being a successful work at woman is one constant course correction. There is no step-by-step, absolutely guaranteed formula for success. If there were everyone would be a successful business owner. The truth is the journey is different for everyone and success looks different for every woman. When you create something from nothing you must use your intuition – which requires you to trust your gut – and you have to know yourself in order to do that successfully.

If you don’t trust yourself you will ebb and flow with other people’s agenda’s and not be creating from your power. You won’t be tapping into your divine and unique gifts.

Here are 5 Personal Self-Checks to Help Clarify if You Don’t Trust Yourself:

1. You find yourself creating self-perpetuating cycles of stress and anxiety, never getting to a place where you are happy and satisfied; you don’t trust yourself. (more…)

Your Purpose is What Will Lead YOU to Entrepreneurial Success

Your Purpose is What Will Lead YOU to Entrepreneurial Success By Kelly Robbins

Many women strive to live the entrepreneurial dream. They want to work from home, create a work-life balance that perhaps they didn’t grow up with, and they want to live an authentic life – a life of purpose.

I am a firm believer that if you have the desire to accomplish a goal, you have the means about you to accomplish it. You might not see the entire path in front of you, but it’s important to have the faith in yourself that “if there’s a will there’s a way”. That knowing deep inside that ‘you might not know that way yet, but you’ll figure it out’ is imperative to making what you want to happen, happen.

Why are some women able to achieve success in their business ventures and others not?

The truth is that successful people form the habit to do what other people don’t like to do. They do what others won’t.

The thing is successful people don’t like to do the same things other people don’t like to do, however, they develop the habit of doing them. (more…)

When One Door Closes Another One Opens — But the Hallway Sure Sucks!

When One Door Closes Another One Opens -- But the Hallway Sure Sucks! By Kelly Robbins

Whenever you step into a new phase of life; from having a baby to working from home rather than in a corporate job, there is a transition period. The transition is that period between leaving your J-O-B and actually supporting yourself in your new business. The initial bliss of having a new baby and the reality of your 85th day in a row up at 2:00am.

Behind the new door is often what we strive to create. More money. Independence. Freedom. Happiness. Family.

I strongly believe creating all of these things is your God-given birthright. However, you have to choose it and step into creating it to make it happen.

As a business coach, I help people close one door and step into another. It’s not usually easy and it takes a strong, disciplined person to keep walking down the hallway – particularly when they can’t see the next door yet.

That hallway often feels dark, scary and unknown. It’s an in-between place and it takes faith and determination to stay the course between doors and not quit. (more…)

How to Be the Puppet Master of Your Own Life

How to Be the Puppet Master of Your Own LifeBy Janice Walker Pinnington

Having to manage your time and tasks can either be your closest friend or fiercest enemy, depending on your organizational abilities, discipline, and execution.

As a busy working stay-at-home mom, business owner, wife, friend, neighbor, sister, daughter, (and numerous other roles), there were many times in my life where I ran on pure, raw energy, jumping from task to task with no real (or clear) control over my day.

Much like a puppet on a string, I allowed my life to be controlled by an invisible force called responsibility. Let’s just say that Mr. Responsibility and I were NOT friends, and we clashed on many occasion resulting in stressful, joyless, and exhaustive days.

Fast-forward to 2015 and the snapshot of my life paints a much more balanced, happy, and controlled existence.

So what am I doing so differently today that allowed me to become a puppet master, pulling my own strings?

Below are some of the things I have implemented over the years, through trial and error, that allowed me to slow down, take a breath, and organize my day in a way to accomplish the things that needed doing. I hope you will find some inspiration in some of these ideas. (more…)
