Coaching for wellbeing article on SDF.ac.uk
I recently accepted the SDF invite to guest the Coaching for wellbeing and managing burnout Twitter discussion with great excitement and curiosity. Making space for self-care is something I had to learn the hard way.
As an “overachiever” I would habitually push my body to its limits in an effort to achieve results and win approval and love. While I got results and won approval, I also attracted pain. This was due to two main reasons: (1) fear and (2) lack of love.
My burnout hurt my body and I realized that how I constructed my life brought avoidable suffering into my life. This created a massive impetus for change and ending unnecessary suffering become my mission.
Today I make space for self-care where before it often didn’t get a seat at the table. That space is really about self-love: caring for my emotional, physical, mental and spiritual health Love of self is a recognition that unless we do that caring, no one else will and it’s not really their job.
This is what I now see as an important mark of adulthood.Magdalena Bak-Maier in SDF.ac.uk
