The Herpreneur Lifestyle Show launches TODAY!!!!!!!!
To say, contracting meningitis last year rocked my world, would be an understatement!
I ended up in the disease ward of a third world hospital…
Let’s just say the conditions were something you would see in a movie.
It had me determined to get home as quick as possible.
After 3 weeks of hell, I finally left…though it was without permission and under an enforced waiver.
When I got back home, something about myself had changed…
I felt different.
I’d had lost the feeling that I lived with for the past 5 years.
I lost my addiction and drive to work like a Trojan.
It was a strong undeniable feeling that I couldn’t shake.
“I don’t want to go back and continue working the way I was!” I said crying to my husband.
I hadn’t realise the ‘heavy daily pressure’ I had placed on my self to ‘achieve’.
Not to mention how much the stress was playing major havoc on my weight.
Embarrassingly, I put on 15kgs in only 4 years
Even though I had continued exercising 3-5 days a week over this time, as much as I tried, I kept packing more weight on.
I went from a 6 pack of abs, to a one pack of flab.
At times when I looked in the mirror I didn’t recognise my body, disbelief that it belonged to me.
I knew the way I had been working…was just NOT WORKING!
Not for my level of happiness, nor fulfilment and definitely not for my health.
There was no way I was going back to that stressful lifestyle again!
So the past 5 months turned into some deep soul searching…
As a result, 2 things have changed dramatically:
- I have been teaching myself to work differently, more in my feminine.
2. I have been tweaking my health regime …it’s sooooo much easier than before with sooooo much better results.
Boom…I’ve easily dropped that unwanted 15kgs in weight.
Check out my before and after photo below (cringe factor…there’s nothing like a good before photo in daggy undies, that you then have to keep wearing to make an honest after pic. Now that I have these snaps, they’re in the bin!)
It’s not just the weight loss though, I’m finally feeling fulfilled again!
Fulfilled without the crazy adrenaline addiction of success and –
Fulfilled without the high pressure and ego-focused mind.
I think there is an epidemic for women in the way we currently work.
I think we place too much pressure on ourselves.
Partly because we unconsciously work in a masculine business framework, but we are also depleting our self-esteem with poor health choices. As a result of trying to numb our stress.
I recently conducted a survey and the results so far show that, 51% of the women use alcohol to manage their stress –
46% use food.
We are drinking and eating our way out of stress (anxiety, depression, adrenaline and fatigue are a few types of stress) and it’s killing our self-esteem in the long run!
It’s not sustainable.
It’s imperative that we evolve now.
The question is, what will be your evolution?
Or to a more tired, more stressed, overweight and overworked “snappy bitch” to your loved ones by the end of the day?
I say “snappy bitch,” only because that was the general consensus that many of you shared in the survey under ‘other comments’.
I feel it’s my mission to speak up
I’ve thought long and hard about pimping my pain to help other women
Yes, I feel vulnerable about the article!
BUT it’s my truth and I know there’s many other women in business who are not at their highest level of happiness,
who are chasing fulfilment and success BUT getting hammered along the way.
Physically and emotionally.
Does any of this this resonate with you?
Do crave a more calmer version of you, crave more fulfilment in your life and work, more happiness and seriously want to meet the healthier version of you…again?
If so, I’m inviting you to plug into something that is going to help you evolve into the next better version of you.
I’d love for you to come join me and experts from all around the world to specially help you, as a woman in business, live a more fulfilling life, while you continue to build your business empire.
It’s called the Herpreneur Lifestyle Show!
