Studying Rest

At the end of my last blog post on being quarantined on Christmas day I wrote,

In 2016, I am going to prioritize rest.

And now, on January 7th less than 10 days into the year, I’m realizing I don’t know what exactly that would mean.  There are some things I can do that are straight-forward, make sure I get enough sleep, not fill my calendar completely full.  But other parts of rest feel more elusive.

How can I live a more restful life?  How can I bring rest into the work I have to do? What activities give me energy so I’m not drained at the end of the day? What is the difference between being tired and being drained?

I stand by my focus on prioritizing rest in my life in 2016.  But I’m realizing if I’m going to successfully prioritize it, I’m going to have to study it first.

I work with big hearted people who want to make a positive impact in the world. The only problem is: -Your career isn’t working -You wake up some days and don’t want to get out of bed -You’re stressed about paying the bills Career Coaching in the Forest teaches you how to make small shifts that will free up tons of energy for the things you really love. A life where you wake up to feeling a sense of purpose and easily pay the bills. I teach you how to approach making a career change in a way that is fun, easy and gets results :). I have over a decade of experience in the field of education and during my four years at an educational non-profit I hired enough contract staff to know what employers want and DON’T WANT in the job application process. So why did I start this? When I was 24, I was overwhelmed by my job working with vulnerable youth and fell apart. I moved to a yoga centre for 2 years to put myself back together. There I figured out what I was messing up at work and became a yoga and meditation teacher. Career Coaching in the Forest will help you to see the mistakes you’re making without having to move to a yoga centre! And use meditative practices to help you see where you need to go. I know exactly what it feels when something’s not right in your career and now I love helping others to make changes so their lives can become full of meaning and purpose again and so that you can make lots money too ;). Start today: get my Free Resource: Land Your Dream Job Checklist here - tinyurl.com/dreamjobchecklist And above all else, please go for your dreams. Your life has meaning. You are here for reason. Find out what it is and when you do put all you that you got towards it! Talk soon! Bryn To learn more go to www.couragecompass.org
