I actually really love this quote/philosophy by Marie Kondo – “does it bring you joy?” and I like to talk about this with clients when addressing their space as part of my 12 core principles to better wellbeing.

By now you know my philosophy that “everything affects everything” and with that in mind, a key factor to all this is energy. I could ask you a number of questions about energy but if you’re busy, chances are you are using up all of your energy on giving to other people and things, leaving very little for yourself. One of the best most effective ways to improve your energy levels is to give to yourself FIRST. Before anyone or anything – that includes partners and kids! If we only have 10 minutes in our day, just for ourselves, then taking it will have very beneficial results in the long term. Start slow, 10 minutes is a good timeframe to start and then you’ll want to add more time as you start to see how effective it is.
When I started my coaching practice I had a vision for what I wanted to do, what I wanted to achieve for my clients and myself and a timeframe in which I wanted things to happen. I spent as much time as possible on building my practice often sacrificing time with my son, friends and my husband. As a hard-working determined person, those who knew me understood that I needed this focus to get what I wanted – and it’s working. Those who didn’t know me however, were seeing a different version of events.
