I’ve learnt that life is about balance. So, alongside my work, I look for other opportunities to be creative and let go. For example, I love music. I play the guitar and a bit of the piano – it’s something I do to de-stress, and it really works for me. Whenever I can, I take a moment to do the things I love and tap into my creativity. I find it benefits so many other areas of my life.
Self-care is so important – even if that word’s a little overused these days. There is so much going on in life and we can find ourselves constantly on our phones or checking emails, so getting away from all those screens is great. I also find that keeping physically and mentally fit allows me to spend more time doing what I love, such as skydiving and surfing, so I’d recommend anyone try as many things as possible to get out there and away from the daily grind. I can’t tell you what it will do for your mind.
As humans, I believe we really are capable of anything. It might sound corny, but I feel like we can often limit ourselves – sometimes even subconsciously. With our thought processes, for example, we can get in our own way so easily by telling ourselves we’re not good enough, not prepared enough, but if we remove some of the things that get in our way – some physical, some emotional – put good habits in place and create the healthiest routine possible, I honestly think we can achieve anything we want.
