There's this misconception that if you do what you love, you never feel like you're really 'working'... I call 'total myth!' on that, & wanted to share this with you: you can totally do what you love each day & still feel utterly exhausted most days 
.
Since I've been evolving in my role as a wellness educator, I've found that because I REALLY love what I do now, I'm often VERY tired at the end of the day.
.
It's definitely a different kind of tired though - the kind that takes over after spending the day pursuing & feeling passionate about what you're doing & what you want to achieve 
.
In my previous media career, my tiredness was permanently intense, constantly mixed with feelings of stress, sadness & anxiety ‍♀️
.
Nowadays, my tiredness is pure tiredness - the kind that hits after a long, productive day of connection & creativity ✨
.
If any of this makes sense, let this be a reminder to look after YOU!
.
No matter how busy you are:
.
✨Stop, stretch & get outside to soak up some Vitamin D
.
✨Take time to check you are breathing properly!
.
✨Pre-prep food! Create simple recipes like the one below...

There’s this misconception that if you do what you love, you never feel like you’re really ‘working’… I call ‘total myth!’ on that, & wanted to share this with you: you can totally do what you love each day & still feel utterly exhausted most days. Since I’ve been evolving in my role as a wellness educator, I’ve found that because I REALLY love what I do now, I’m often VERY tired at the end of the day.

It’s definitely a different kind of tired though – the kind that takes over after spending the day pursuing & feeling passionate about what you’re doing & what you want to achieve. In my previous media career, my tiredness was

permanently intense, constantly mixed with feelings of stress, sadness & anxiety. Nowadays, my tiredness is pure tiredness – the kind that hits after a long, productive day of connection & creativity.
