How I relax + restore my energy when business is busy

How I relax and restore my energy

 

Sorry I’ve been a little quiet the last few weeks. After a busy start to the year I have been taking some time to focus purely on my 2 wonderful UPswing Mastermind groups and my own self-care.
 
The UPswing Mastermind sold-out again quickly in February with the program doubling in size this time around and the driven health coaches who said yes this year are certainly DRIVEN!
 
Some are experiencing the joy of true clarity on their Target Markets, some are celebrating their first paying clients and a couple of ladies are already on track for $5k and $10k months only 5 weeks into the program – seriously amazing!!
 
For those who have messaged me to let me know they just missed out on the program last month, you can join the waitlist here for the next round of the UPswing Mastermind >> 

Dates are not confirmed but due to the number of requests coming in, I'm looking to see if I can start another group in a few months time.
 
In the meantime – my support is available to each and everyone of you on a daily basis over in my UPswing Health Coaches facebook group – if you haven’t already joined us, jump over and do so right now >>
 
In my business I tend to work in cycles and season - it's a key value for me to take both massive inspired action and equally to create space to relax, rejuvenate, receive and be inspired.

With this extra space to reflect over recent weeks, I’ve been thinking a lot about the importance of Wealth in building a freedom-based business.
 
I notice that any talk of Wealth can often be misinterpreted (or quickly judged) as being about the 'selfish' need for Ferraris and Gucci. For those who follow me, you will know that my approach to Wealth is quite different to that and in fact I view Wealth as an aspect of our Health. (Not saying that Ferraris and Gucci are bad either btw)
Grasping this concept was such a game changer in both my life and business - and honestly sometimes it scares me how many people would have missed out on building their own business if I had remained in my old mindset of playing small and thinking money wasn't for me.

Last weekend I took a long weekend with my husband for some R&R.
 
As I drove to pick him up on Friday afternoon it really hit me - ‘THIS is wealth’!  Wealth is never about the physical money itself – for me it is having full freedom to enjoy that which truly makes me feel alive.
 
In this instance, the freedom to decide last minute on a Friday to take 4 days off. The freedom after buying my car last year to physically be able to do this. The freedom to stay in a great hotel and eat healthy food all weekend and relax in nature, the sun and the ocean.
 
And just how great I felt after that break to come back and be of highest service to all of my awesome clients this week as a result!
 
Massive self-care and fun are vital parts of any Health Coaches journey!! It is non-negotiable if you want to live your best life and inspire others to do the same.

 

 

For anyone who lives in Sydney like I do, here are my personal recommendations for a mini-break to Terrigal on the Central Coast:

Terrigal Beach on NSW's Central Coast has become my favourite weekend getaway destination over the last year. I love that it is only 90 minutes drive from Sydney, has beautiful beaches and the cafes are not only plentiful but full of super healthy options.

I don't know about you but when I go away I want to come back feeling refreshed and rested, not worse from the lack of healthy food options - hence why Terrigal has become my getaway spot of choice.

My Favourite Spots:

Terrigal Ocean Beach Resort - http://www.terrigalpacific.com.au/

Modern, clean and quiet and the pool and hottub area great for lazing away the afternoons. 15 minutes walk to the main shops and cafes was the perfect distance to keep up some movement all weekend.


Bella Natural Food Co - https://www.facebook.com/bellanaturalfoodco

Great smoothies, cabinets of food-to-go, organic produce and a full breakfast and lunch menu. I had the Quinoa Waffles with Blueberries and Coconut Icecream :)
 

Pocket Bar - http://www.pocketgroup.com.au/

Bordering on the 'too cool for school' clientelle, the food and drinks make it well worth an afternoon at Pocket Bar. While I only tend to drink Alcohol about once a month, the 'Totes Organic Mate' Cocktails made of Quinoa Vodka and Coconut Water went down nicely with the Gluten Free Duck Crepes. The perfect late-afternoon spot to kick back and people watch from the outside tables right in the middle of town.
 

Bombini - http://www.bombini.com.au/

Cosy and cute, we could've been tucked up in a Bali Villa but instead were just a 5 min drive from Terrigal at neighbouring Avoca Beach. Sunday Evening Roast doesn't get much better than at Bombini. Fresh homemade Gluten-Free Bread with Local Olive Oil, followed by the most delicious Roast Pork and their house specialty dessert. 


I hope wherever you are in the world you step into your own version of wealth and freedom this weekend, refuelling yourself for an awesome week ahead.

Let me know in the comments below how you're spending your time this weekend.
