TRUSTING THE CYCLE
MENSTRUAL | LUNAR | SEASONAL
YOUR INNER CYCLE
According to most of my school reports back in the day I was chatty, cheeky, "away with the fairies". A silly heart. When I worked in a high pressure job in advertising, I was accused of not taking things seriously because I wasn't getting stressed along with everyone else. Maybe if we'd been planning surgery instead of viral campaigns for sportswear I would have ben a bit more tense(!), but it was frustrating to me that people didn't believe you could possibly be doing good work while also enjoying yourself.
This myth lives on in the freelance community. We leave our 9-5 job to be our own boss and then we're harsher on ourselves then any other employer. We work around the clock for the love of it. We undercharge because we lack confidence. We take on more than we can do because who says no to paying work? We don't take breaks because there is just too much to do.
And then we burn out.
My mission is to help bust the myth around "hustling" (gah, I hate that word) and work with my clients so they can create a truly sustainable and happy business for themselves. Working constantly - whether you're designing, networking, marketing, answering emails - it is not sustainable. You need rest. You need to listen to your body so it can keep on supporting that magical, creative brain of yours. When is the last time you took a break without checking your phone or feeling guilty for not working?
