My struggle is that my work and personal life are feeling blurred. I now realise that the commute to work is a hard boundary but as I work from home I am not able to find this separation. My challenge is to find a new boundary at home because otherwise it becomes exhausting. I also have to consciously stop “overdoing it”, but rather to find time to slow down and go deep into quietness. Most of all, have gratitude that I still have a job ❤
After reading this comment that was made in response to my post on ‘hormonal stress’ I was inspired to write about some of the practical ways that I am trying to separate work, ‘training’ and home life. The challenge of establishing boundaries between work and ‘life’ within our homes is a real and crucially important one. It is a current issue but also a lesson that is invaluable to learn for longer term wellness. So, today I have decided to share what Graham and I are trying to do to create separation from our home and work environments.
In summary, we are aiming to prevent negative anchoring in the home. We want to avoid ‘work’ anchors establishing when we are trying to be ‘at home’, and ‘training’ anchors filtering into the times when we are trying to unwind. Creating physical barriers to work and training in and around your home life will really help you to feel more peaceful at home. I hope this helps!
FYI: I have been doing my yoga practices with @Aaron Schultz Yoga. Find this on Facebook. He offers 10 very simple and runner-friendly, beginner-friendly practices every week. All of these can be done either live or later in your own time. He offers both Yin & Flow yoga, as well as some guided meditation sessions.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
