What are you looking for?
Hi, I'm Martine Barclay and I want to support you to better manage your stress, so you get
noticed for the right reasons.
- Are you struggling to sleep without help?
- Have your emotions become hard to control?
- Do you sense that you're starting to juggle too many things?
- Is stress getting in the way of you achieving your goals?
Often it is the kindest, most engaging people who wear masks as an armour against the day to day that they find themselves experiencing. Over time the pressure they put on themselves and the perceived pressure from others becomes too much and the mask is no longer enough.
While you enjoy your life, it’s not as fun as it used to be; the pace of it doesn’t afford you the opportunity to take stock and recharge. And you keep going. Missing the tell-tale signs that you’re out of balance and, unknowingly or consciously, quickly develop strategies to make up the shortfall.
And they’ll work - until they don’t.
The biggest impact to you is likely to be your sleep, the quality and duration of it. When you’re tired – whether you’re an entrepreneur, professional, business leader or parent – you make mistakes and unfortunate decisions which start to put your career, relationships and health at risk. You lose sight of the responsibilities that matter and what you really want to be known for. You become a little less recognisable, and those around you suffer.
The truth is stress affects us all.
Anyone one who has expectations for themselves and others, who worries about what opinions they may hold of them, or who are concerned about their future are bound to experience stress.
It’s what we do with it that matters most!
