I get it folks. Pain sucks the ever loving life out of you. Sometimes it effects your sleep. Sometimes it effects your energy at work (hello afternoon crash). It often draws your focus away from a “I got so much done today I nailed it” to a “I will get that done later” mentality, which leads to crushing overwhelm because you are so behind. It also takes the joy out experiencing your physical hobbies like skiing, hiking, climbing, and traveling. And face it, you work hard, so you must play hard stay sane. Does this sound familiar? I have been there. In 2010 I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis. My body hurt, my brain hurt, I was taking constant naps (every afternoon), my hair was falling out, and my low libido was affecting my new marriage. I was missing client meetings from brain fog. I was fired from a new business opportunity because I couldn’t keep up with the demand. I was constantly overwhelmed and stressed out despite eating right and exercising daily. That was what I was told to do, what I was educated to do, only it didn’t work. Eating right and exercising regularly wasn’t the only healing strategy I needed. My issue was deeper and work and life stress was what put me there. It was time to change what I was doing and finally get results. Now I am on the other side, skiing down mountains, hiking up said mountains, building my own legacy, and humbly helping others do the same.
As part of this #CourageToCreate track, Shana will lead a workshop on habit-building: The courage to create stems from a place of healthy habits, foundational strength, and the ability to execute.
Part 1: Your goals are in the stars. How do you reach them? Learn how to set achievable goals by shifting your focus. When you recognize the smaller habitual behaviors you need to adopt in order to accomplish your goals you can then see the yellow brick road of achievement laid out before you.
Part II: Clean your lens…yours has smudges. How do you view your life? How do you view yourself? When you walk into your kitchen do you see a sink full of dirty dishes or used tools of nourishment?. By shifting your identity to align with the habits you are working to adopt, you prepare yourself to live in a totally new reality. You want to create? Then you have to clean up your lens.
Part III: To kick your own ass you must first move thy foot. Benjamin Franklin said, “If you fail to plan, you plan to fail”. Are you ready? Are you open? What might be in your way? In order to achieve your goals, you must have awareness in your journey. Part three of the workshop will walk you through a series of questions that bring to light what might be in your way of achieving your goals. That way nothing will stop you…not even the Tampa Bay defensive line.
