Life, eh? It’s all one big balancing act tbh.
* You wanna be a sassy #GIRLBOSS woman-of-the-world, but you also wanna spend QT with your lover(s), loved ones and friends.
* You want to live a more mindful life, but you also want an amazing Instagram grid.
* You don’t want to be online all the time but when you’re not? Hiyas all of the FOMO.
Sometimes life seems like a series of compromises, but can you ever reach the Holy Grail of getting your yin perfectly aligned with your yang?
When everyone wants a piece of you, how do you find the PEACE in you?
A Peace of Me is a wellbeing destination with a difference, focusing on…
With all the available technology in the 21st Century, people are busier and more stressed-out than ever before BUT most of us haven’t got the option of relocating to Outer Mongolia to live a bohemian lifestyle and permanently unplug.
Most of us have smartphones, most of us need email for work, most of us have to-do lists as long as our arm.
Most of us would like to relax more, to be healthier and to live a happier, more authentic lifestyle.
A Peace of Me is a platform that exploring the notion of living an integrated life, bridging the gap between spirituality and success – in a way that’s easy to digest and understand, promoting the use of technology but in a much more ~mindful~ manner.
After experiencing burnout in 2013, and somewhat of a relapse in 2016, it occurred to me I spent my time full-on, non-stop busy, until I either took a holiday (rare) or fell ill (more likely), when I would slow down, relax and recharge.
I gradually realised I was spending my life switching manically from these two modes of living. I also found that I was happier (and healthier) living in the latter even though I spent most of my time in the former.
How could I get me some of that peaceful state of mind, all day, errr’y day, while still maintaining a successful career (‘cos gurl got bills to pay) and pursuing my goals?
How can I be social yet spiritual, too?
If all this is tl;dr, the simple answer is this: it all lies within you.
The way in which you react to stress and allow external sources to govern you • The things you spend your time doing • The boundaries you put in place • Your definition of success • How in tune with your body you are • The value you place on your job title. ‘Cos guys, these choices are all yours to make!
Fear not, because I’m on this journey too. I’m learning as I go along (we are all works in progress, after all), but want to share the insights I gain along the way – not only for you, but to act as a reminder for me, should I feel burnout beckoning again. That’s what A Peace of Me is alllll about.
So. On a Peace of me, you’ll find:
