Firstly I want to apologise for my AWOL during these past few weeks. Those who follow me on IG Stories will know that I’ve spent both Christmas and the New Year hosting on QVC. I’ve had the most incredible time presenting some amazing fashion and accessory brands but when we landed into the new year, I needed some ‘me’ time. And to be honest, I’ve totally enjoyed having the space and time away from creating content. So much so, I’ve realised that my life balance was completely out of sync! It has only just dawned on me that I actually spend all of my time working. And over the course of last year it has slowly lead me to a dark place. I guess it’s only when we stop and reflect, that we realise where we’re truly at. Thankfully a good friend opened my mind to the idea of designing my life. I just love this ethos. To be able to design the life you truly desire is actually possible. I’ve started by taking a few steps for a positive start to the year – And clearly I had to share this with you! You can’t know where you’re going until you know where you’re at, right?
So in a nutshell, it’s all about assessing your state of ‘life’ by the way you work, play and love. Your health is an important factor too. If you’re not balanced in Health, Work, Play & Love – nothing in your life will work well. The balance will obviously change at different times in our lives but overall, we should try and have a good amount of equal time spent in each of the four states of being.
So overall, designing my life by having a good balance of Work, Play, Love & Health, I can have the best results all round, and by doing so I want to fill this positivity into NewLifenStyle. Without any ego, I promise my blog will continue to be an honest place. I can’t wait to share my journey into a New Life filled with Style and Creative Tips as I venture into consultancy work this year. Here’s to 2018!
