Have you ever felt like the worries are building up inside your head so much that you get a headache or a tummy ache? A bit like when you put baked beans or soup in the microwave and don’t cover them up. Splat! Whoopsie! A mini microwave explosion is a signal from your body that all is not well. Are you listening? Busy lives can mean that stress builds up inside of us so it’s important we notice when we’re getting stressed so we don’t reach explosion stage.
In today’s episode, I’m going to take you back to a time where I had an utterly butterly moment over my exams. It wasn’t pretty but maybe it’s the warning you need to hear so that you slow down and stop too.
Here’s what you’ll hear this episode:
- What it means when life is out of balance (wonky)
- What 2 helpful questions you need to ask yourself to help you stay in balance
- How to come up with some ideas to stay in balance
