Do you feel it, you know these days when you’re running too much because you’re juggling so many balls?

You wanted to do this, to do that and your precious plans are out of the window because of an emergency?

And you feel your balance shifting dangerously to your panic zone, you start to be on edge and it’s like, more you running, more it’s like you spinning your wheels right?

TRUTH TALK: GET OFF TRACK IS HUMAN

Brand-spanking-news: you know that you just enter into the Stress department.

You know that this is not a good song but you cannot prevent it, it’s like being in the train running at light speed aka you don’t see how to slow down the pace.

TRUTH BOMB: losing your balance is normal. daily, weekly, monthly.

Get off track is human.

Our mind is wired to protect us at any cost, don’t be surprised if you set up new goals, and these ones slip under your radar a few weeks later, your mind loves what is familiar, so everything new, your mind will work to keep it away from your attention aka not enter into your life.

How to get back on track/ How to bounce back?

WISDOM BOMB: The challenge is to get back on the wagon fast.

Because let’s be honest: being stressed is eating our appetite to bounce back.

You feel pulled in so many directions that you don’t even remember what you did yesterday.

Trust me, you’re not alone.

When my responsibilities started to pile up because of being a wife and a working mum, I was doing the things so fast that I didn’t have a recollection of when I did them before, crazy right? yes, it was.

HOW TO CRACK THE CODE OF RESILIENCE

But now, I figured out how to crack the code of resilience.

The key is to stick to your routine, morning or evening.

The Why of having a routine

Because when you’re off-balance, you need to stay attached to what you know, what is reassuring for you.

To do that, you need to partner with your mind.

To recharge your mental energy, following the rules of the mind is pure gold.

Your mind loves:

1 - repetition

2 - what is familiar

3 - practice

With this in mind, a routine is going to help you to stay grounded, centred and re-calibrate.

The benefits of having a routine

Going back to your routine, your QG gives you a sense of control:

  • it’s re-creating the structure of a safe environment created by you and for you

  • it’s resting, reflecting in a peaceful environment

  • it’s making your goals attainable - if a habit is part of your morning routine to reach a goal, stick to your routine will help you to get closer to your goal.

So you may be tempted to get on the resolution wagon and believe that this time, yes, you’ll stick to your new, healthy habit.

Well, the reality is, if you want to stick to it, you have to integrate this habit into your routine.

Not next week or in 2 days, but now.

To feel good and tick off this thing on your to-do list.

It feels so good to do that, right?

Stay tuned for the next blog post to tell you the 3 principles to achieve your goals.

With love, joy and trust

Mindset Mentor, Motivational Speaker, Fear Expert and Head of GLCM Wellbeing Europe Communications at HSBC, A Rockstar Mindset

Let’s start with three qualities which define me, shall we? I am an optimist, I’m innovative and I’m energetic. If you’re looking for something unconventional blended with optimism and energy, welcome to the Rockstar Mindset QG. I am a Mindset Mentor, Fear Expert and Motivational Speaker. I’m also a UK Ambassador for Psychologies magazine, a publication which inspires and motivates readers to create a life they love through the online Life Labs platform. After 10 years working in the banking industry, I created my wellness consultancy, A Rockstar Mindset, to help ambitious women entrepreneurs become the rockstar of their life. How? By getting out of overwhelm, overcoming their fears and progressing to the next level in their business. When I became a mum, I strove to be the best mum possible. I did not foresee that my attitude, my pursuit of perfection, would leave me feeling constantly overwhelmed and on the edge of burnout. But it has long been my belief that positivity is a driver for change and leadership, and when I learned about positive psychology and neuroplasticity (the ability of the brain to change and adapt), I was hooked. “Positive psychology is the scientific study of what makes life most worth living.” –- C. Peterson My approach is that there is more than we can see, that it’s fundamental to maintain a critical stance and to be independent of thought. I’ve always been the rebel, the outsider, the one to challenge the status quo and bring new and different perspectives or ideas. My encounter with positive psychology and the neurosciences confirmed for me that my beliefs (that we should think outside the box, focus on the positive) were accurate. I was on the right track! Convinced that there was another way to be successful at work and at home, I delved into the world of neurosciences, positive psychology and metaphysics and created my own system, Do Less, Get More Done – a framework that helps women to be successful with less overwhelm, whilst feeling more present. Positive psychology focuses on strengths instead of weaknesses, building the good in life rather than repairing the bad and reflecting on values and attitudes such as optimism, gratitude, compassion, self-esteem and resilience. The study of these topics came about from a desire to help people flourish and live their best lives. “It is not primarily our physical selves that limit us but rather our mindset about our physical limits.” ― E. Langer It is my conviction that every woman deserves to have a healthy mindset so that she can create a life on her terms. Why? Because we deserve to say stop to the pressure emanating from culture, social media, society. We deserve to be accepted and empowered. Our mind is our ally and must be strengthened as such. Shifting our mindset is vital as well as unlearning, removing the old beliefs holding us back, raising our consciousness and developing our intuition. The world needs us (as women) to positively make a difference to make the life of women, children, and future generations better. It’s time to build a healthy, conscious society based on mutual respect. And I genuinely believe that women have the skills to merge masculine and feminine energy to create something incredible. As for the rest: I love to travel, read books and dance with abandon. I’m married to a marvellous Frenchman and we have a daughter. I am fluent in English and French and I’m an advocate of beauty and women’s empowerment. My philosophy is Forward Thinking Communication and I’m here to help you become the Rockstar of Your Life.
