Every now and then I think it’s important to check in with ourselves to make sure we’re focusing our time and energy in the most meaningful way. Over the past several weeks pandemic-fatigue pulled me off course, so for me that check in has been pretty recent. I’m feeling better now because of it, and I’m super excited to share what I did to get there.
I’ve created a free mini-program that I’m calling the 6 Day Work-Life Reset, and you can sign up for it today, and gain a bit of clarity around what’s important for you right now. I hope you will, because we’re on the winning end of this pandemic, so it’s a great time to reset and move forward with greater purpose.
Watch the video below, or read the blog post that follows, and then make sure you sign up for my free 6 Day Work-Life Reset!
Hey, Michelle Cederberg here, continuing my discussion around those pandemic blahs so many of us have been feeling, why it’s so prevalent (and normal) right now, and what I’ve created to help!
The other day I had a conversation with one of my coaching clients who told me that on the one hand she identified with the notion of languishing I talked about in last week’s video, but on the other, she figures she should be better at managing pandemic-life by now… and she was being hard on herself because she wasn’t.
I had to explain to her that it’s exactly because we’ve been managing pandemic-life for so long, that languishing has become more prevalent. The very definition of languish confirms that to be true.
To exist in an unpleasant or unwanted situation, often for a long time.
The term “languishing” was coined by sociologist Corey Keyes, PhD whose research suggests you can have low mental well-being in the absence of a diagnosable mental health condition. Which is to say, you can be down, and not be totally out…not depressed, just not at your best. And, with all we’ve had to navigate over the last year or more, it’s okay to not be okay, even now…especially now.
And interestingly, our positive mental well-being is connected to so many things that we simply don’t have access to right now in a normal way: positive emotions, life satisfaction, a sense of meaning, interactions with society (this one has really been impacted), and positive relationships, and all of these factors have been weakened or tested in the last several weeks and months.
If you’re at all like me, there’s comfort in putting a name to the malaise, and to learn that it’s normal. It’s actually the first step to feeling better.
Now beyond naming it, more and more research shows that you can begin to recharge your emotional batteries and spark a sense of fulfillment, purpose and happiness, through relatively simple means. Since I value a small-steps approach to many things, I jumped on that notion to create a simple program for you that I am releasing today.
It’s called the 6-Day Work-Life RESET, and it’s a free email-based program that will only require minutes a day to complete, to help you recharge your energy and focus, and reconnect with what is truly important to you right now in your work and life!
When you sign up, you’ll get an email a day for 6 days, each with a short message, a reset exercise or two, and a few provocative questions to light your way to ‘NEXT’. Everything I share via the reset has been known to improve mental well-being, and it’s also fun and thought-provoking.
Whether you’re on my mailing list or not, you will need to opt-in to this freebie, and you can do that via this link. I sure hope you do, because as I mentioned, the daily time commitment is low, but the value you gain will be high.
Even if you’re managing well (high five to you!) your dreams and goals have likely been placed on pause, and my 6 Day Work-Life Reset can help you kick it up a notch.
Plus, if you’re part of the reset, you’ll get first-hand information, and preferential pricing for my soon-to-launch Success-Energy School online program. It’s a 7-module program that helps you work through my new book The Success-Energy Equation with me as your guide. I cannot wait to tell you more about that one in the weeks to come.
Which brings me to the book. The Success-Energy Equation was released last October. Since its goal is to help people regain focus, recharge their life, and really get sh!t done, it’s an ideal resource to guide you out of the fog and toward post-pandemic clarity and productivity. If you haven’t already got your copy, it’s available as an audio book or e-book wherever you download, or for an actual book with pages you have to turn, via Amazon … or for a signed copy via successenergybook.com.
Sign up for the FREE 6 Day Work-Life Reset, and share the link with anyone you know, who might benefit from a reset of their own! EXCITING!
Until next time, I’m Michelle Cederberg reminding you we’ve got one chance to do this life, I say Dare to Live It Big, and dare to get there in small, positive steps.
