Less stress and more time for things that mean a lot to you ?! Welcome to the club! Many of us feel like the proverbial hamster in a wheel: We put ourselves under pressure day in and day out and have the feeling that we always have to function perfectly.
A great job, a harmonious relationship, a stylish car and three vacation holidays a year - we believe we need to have all of these in order to lead a fulfilling life. Quite a sporty undertaking if you take a closer look.
And so we power through our everyday life at an insane pace all year round, only to be able to switch off on vacation once or twice a year. And then we wonder if it doesn't work. When the stress of everyday life cannot simply be switched off at the push of a button on the plane to Bali.
Because it is not uncommon for our stressed body to thwart our plans and we get sick while on vacation, of all places. Or we may quarrel with the partner. Vacation is not a yoga exercise that you can breathe into. And so the project "two-weeks-recovery-from-six-months-stress" often fails miserably.
The rush for the beautiful life.
Crazy for a little bit of wellbeing. And somehow we don't change anything about this model. After all, it has always been that way and everyone does it that way. Everyone tries to be financially good to be able to afford nice things and works hard for them.
So in order to be able to achieve or maintain these self-set standards, we work hard - stress at work, overtime, irritability, burnout and stress symptoms included.
The higher the standard of living, the greater the burden. And what we often forget: the job alone is not the culprit. “Not only a career, but also family and friends require time. Added to this is the effort required to maintain and use the house, garden, car and all kinds of status symbols. "
In the end, exactly what we are all about falls by the wayside: a fulfilled life. And at this very moment it should be clear to us: We have to slow down.
The solution: deceleration or downshifting. More calm and mindfulness in everyday life. And above all: find the right measure again.
We'll help you with that.
