Modern life can be tough. Competition is fierce, life is complex, the pace is fast. As women, we navigate careers, education, travel, relationships, expectations … Each of these takes time and energy, adding to our mental load.
Something has to give.
We cut back on me-time. We sacrifice exercise, sleep and nutrition, incrementally cutting out the very things that enable us to be ourselves and climb our mountains – whatever they may be. We don’t have the headspace for adventure, so we forget how amazing it feels to face our fears and overcome obstacles – of being strong in our bodies and minds. We lose the boldness, the bravery, the fearlessness we once had in favour of routine. We find ourselves looking back at our achievements rather than towards them.
This is the grind.
Read about it in our seminal paper and how to get a grip of it. Better still, join us at our annual festival, the last weekend in February in Bright NE Victoria and be inspired to action.
