For too long we have worked in a world that puts profits over wellness and leaves people feeling burned out, overwhelmed, stressed and suffering from a number of health conditions.
I know many people go into business to create more time and freedom for themselves, to feel more nourished by getting to spend time with the people they love, to travel, and to be able to enjoy this planet and all it has to offer. But often these same people get pulled into working all hours and at any cost.
I do believe there is a balance that can be achieved here that is unique to you as an individual, and can be achieved by checking in regularly with yourself to see how you feel and where you are at. However, there’s also something else that has helped me – you may already be familiar with it but I have slightly adapted it.
What’s helped me is having key feelings and qualities for each area of my business in alignment with my chakras, for me to refer to as an indicator of whether something nourishes me and is worth putting my energy into.
I use the chakras to represent the different parts of my business, as well as my wellbeing in that area.
Base chakra – business basics, systems and processes
Sacral chakra – branding and identity
Solar plexus chakra – wellbeing and self-care
Heart chakra – any sharing and marketing materials
Throat chakra – communication and expression
Third eye chakra – vision and planning
Crown chakra – alignment with purpose
These feelings can be a benchmark for whether or not to say ‘yes’ to something, or for little check-ins when it comes to how you feel.
This blog post is a snippet from my book, Embodied Business. You can get your own copy of Embodied Business here or anywhere you buy your books online.
If you would like support with any ‘blocks’ coming up for you as well as getting grounded with your business, please book in a discovery call here and let’s feel into what it might be like to work together.
