How to ditch resentment in 3 steps!

As women, we often seem pre-programmed to take care of everyone and everything.

Call it evolution, socialisation or habit, the fact remains that we do tend to continue to pop things onto our to-do list, juggle, multi-task and keep on top of seemingly dozens of responsibilities each and every day.

And if you don’t take care of yourself, eventually, something has to give.

That can be your physical health. At the extreme end of the spectrum, burnout and Adrenal fatigue are not just urban myths! But more commonly there is just that feeling of being drained, tired and wrung out. Collapsing in a chair at the end of the day is the only option.

Or perhaps it’s your emotional health that’s suffering? That can manifest as feeling teary, flat, disconnected and quite frankly, unappreciated and resentful.

And guilty as well for feeling that way – that’s the kicker!

It’s difficult to shine when you feel depleted.

So, what’s the secret solution?

To give from your saucer, not your cup as the effervescent, inspirational Lisa Nichols taught me.

In this video I share three simple but powerful tips that will have you easily break free of resentment and exhaustion. It’s all about putting yourself first equal.

And I would love to hear from you in the comments below.

What action are you going to take?

Let’s fill our cups to the brim!

    So relevant for me right now Angela. With an event less than 3 weeks away, slow ticket sales (although lots of promised attendees), overwhelm is starting to kick in. Definitely need to activate my joy list – I’d been really good at that until this week!

      Jodie, having run events myself I can completely relate to that feeling…. most bookings come in the last few days… always! But yes, taking some time to activate your joy list when you’re feeling vulnerable or overwhelmed is a very, very good idea. x

    Such great content Angela, I really enjoyed it and can relate to the tea cup analogy, ( This being the 1st time I have heard of it – really pleased Lisa Nichols shared this with you to share with us ) Overflowing and serving from my saucer. Thank you.

    • Angela Raspass on February 18, 2014 at 10:09 pm
