It happens to most of us at some point. Understanding when you’ve hit the wall is the first step. Then, with the right strategy, it’s all upwards and on-wards. In this article we share some tips to get you back on top of things.
However you choose to phrase it – hitting a wall, burning out, breaking down – losing your sh*t really sucks.
Let me tell you, coaches lose their sh*t too! Earlier this year I hit a wall. Rather than starting off 2020 refreshed, energised and enthusiastic, I was in a slump. Worse still, I had no apparent reason to feel that way; my life is awesome! Knowing this only made things worse; I felt that my negative emotions weren’t warranted.
There are many reasons why we might lose momentum, sometimes to a point that we feel a sense of paralysis and despair. It’s important to recognise the signs and put some self-care into place to get back on track. Better still, keep in mind that through every break-down there is the opportunity to experience an amazing break-through!
In this article we share some insights into how to identify when you’ve lost your sh*t and make some suggestions for simple steps to get your sh*t back again!
