Go Slow...Is It Time You Had a Top Up'?

I’ve been coaching quite a lot recently within organisations undergoing change. It’s tough if you’re the recipient of a major reorganisation, not least waiting to find out whether you have a job or not. Stress levels can rocket through the roof. If you are in this position, I have a question for you: Have you stopped looking after yourself?

It happens so often; we become stressed, tired and feel like victims being buffeted about by events outside of our control. By the time we get home there is no energy for anything else except basic needs like eating, sleeping. We just collapse.

It’s understandable but definitely undesirable. Unlooked for change is exhausting and stress will make you tired. It becomes a vicious cycle as you gradually give up those activities which sustain and nourish you – the very things you should be doing as much of as possible.

Think about it now. Are you putting something back in when you can? Topping yourself up to help you manage change? Whatever you do to nourish you, be it a sport of some kind, meeting friends, a hobby, make sure you continue to do it. Put it in your diary, make arrangements with friends, book a session, and make sure you look after yourself!

You owe it to yourself; getting low and stressed isn’t good for you or anyone around you.

Women's Personal Development Specialist - Changing People, -

Hi, I’m Jane C Woods and I have an absolute passion for helping women achieve success in their lives. Be it the glass ceiling, the crystal maze, or very personal issues, I’m all about helping women achieve to their full potential and live the way they want to without being carbon copies of men. But I’m not about putting men down in order for women to get ahead, there’s plenty of room; I just want the guys to shifty up a bit… If my face looks familiar it's because I love Psychologies magazine (I've been buying it since the very first issue, such a good resource) and it's the only place I choose to advertise my courses. I write on women’s issues on my blog, www.changingpeople.co.uk, and am regularly featured in magazines, and on radio, but I’m probably best known for RenewYou. RenewYou is my one day personal development course for women. We have an international network of experienced, specialist women licensed to deliver it and empower women across the globe. Our goal is to reach one million women. It’s a big goal but… In 2013 we started with a single RenewYou specialist, me. Now you can find a RenewYou Courses across the UK, in the USA, Canada, Greece, Bangkok, Pakistan, South Africa, Belgium, with new countries being added all the time. My dream was to create a thriving and caring business on ethical, and dare I say, feminine terms, with a real community spirit of help and encouragement. And it’s actually happening with the support, expertise, and enthusiasm of my wonderful trainers. I think, (apart from my two lovely kids, a daughter and a son) that it’s probably my proudest achievement to date. Wonderful Changing People Women: One of the joys and privileges of my work is that I’ve connected with some really inspirational and wonderful women – from politics to entertainment to academia. They include: TV presenter, house fixer and matchmaker Sarah Beeny Amazing entrepreneur Sam Roddick of Coco de Mer Outspoken and entertaining academic Mary Beard Politicians like Siobhan Benita and Natalie Bennett Ex BBC broadcaster Miriam O’Reilly who bravely took on the might of the BBC- and triumphed A very rare interview with Sarah Montague, of the influential BBC Radio 4 Today programme I hope you like the posts and I hope they are helpful.
