From what I hear, a lot of us have been taking it week to week due to pandemic fatigue. I’ve personally been struggling a little (going on 11 weeks separated from my kids due to interstate co-parenting & lockdowns), and have been hearing the grief and heaviness of the Live to Serve students on a daily basis.
In these uncertain times, it can be helpful to try and create certainty in our lives through our Dinacharya. For example, setting a daily routine and sticking to it. Being ultra committed to our at home self-care regime. Taking shelter in our meditation practice daily. While the world spins into chaos around us, our daily routine can help us remain grounded, calm, and at least offset some of the uncertainty we’re experiencing. If you’d like help with getting your daily routine in place, I have a tonne of resources and never get tired of talking about routines! So please feel free to respond to this email and I’ll be in touch to see how I can best serve you.
Can we also talk about money for a moment? Money and financial loss has probably been the most challenging part of the pandemic for me. As a single mother of 4, watching my income fluctuate, I’ve had to be very smart and disciplined with my money management. If I’m honest, it’s been refreshing to see how less can also bring us back to what’s most important – in life, and also in our spending habits. To not have as much freedom has helped me go on a bit of a spending-detox, which has been liberating, and has set me up to run my life (including my business) in a much more financially intelligent manner.
(side note – loved the movie Confessions of a Shopaholic. “When I shop, the world gets better, is better. Then it’s not any more, and I have to do it again.” Hard relate. And also realised that my retail therapy habits were not serving me. I’m giggling as I write this but also know it’s really not funny!)
I have found that when it comes to looking at our life and wellbeing, it tends to be easy to create pie in the sky goals for what we want to achieve financially. But how many of us actually know which behaviours we need to engage in to attain these $$ goals? Often our money behaviours get left of the strategy completely, or they’re limited or vague. To help us create helpful habits and rituals with our money, I invited Annette Dickson from Cashflow Mastery to join our open-house podcast for a night. With jobs and income being affected on a global scale due to the pandemic, and finance being one of life’s biggest stressors, I thought it would be helpful to have some practical guidance on how to take control of your financial wellbeing.
