Many of us live busy and hectic lives, rushing around trying to meet the next deadline, whilst thinking about what’s for dinner or worrying about whether we’re spending enough time with our families. Time for our own development and wellbeing comes way down the list.
This was me not long ago, I spent most of my life in a state of overwhelm, was stressed and had lost the ability to be creative. I’m a trainer and career coach for both adults and teenagers and often hear my clients expressing the same frustrations.
Prior to running my own company, I worked on business change programmes in large corporate organisations. In today’s world of volatile, fast-moving and complex environments, you need to be robust and resilient to adapt to the often uncertain and stressful working days.
Something I love is being outdoors, taking time and space in the beautiful surroundings of nature always enables me to clear my head, see things from a different perspective and re-connect with my inner creativity. I often solve difficult and nitty gritty problems that are bothering me after time outside. I’ve found that by regularly spending time at Fresh Air Fridays sessions, I’ve been able to manage my workload better, improve my sleep and taking back control of my career.
When I found Fresh air Fridays I was delighted, it gives me time every month to re-connect with who I truly am. A few hours focusing on my own wellbeing leaves me refreshed and full of energy so I can get back to the life I love.
I enjoy Fresh Air Fridays so much that I’m now a facilitator and want to share this with you. My sessions take place in the lovely countryside around West Berkshire and North Hampshire where I am building my community groups. I also run our business programme for organisations who are committed to their staff and their wellbeing.
