I know it can be difficult sometimes to ask for help.
It is easy to spend our day taking care of others. With all the demands, we sometimes forget to take care of ourselves. Then, add in a major life change such as divorce... on an uncharted path... with additional responsibilities... and a legal system that is unpredictable... whew! Just thinking about it, I need a siesta or a vacation to the Bahamas! ;)
Well the truth is, we may not be able to check out of our day-to-day lives at this point. But, what if we could take two days off to recharge and refresh our mind and soul?
About seven years ago, I set out to create a safe, non-judgment space for women to come, learn and grow. I designed a 2-day Reaching Forward Retreat for women who were recently or soon-to-be single. It has been really amazing to see the transformations. And, I love that I have been able to blend my 12-year history in the financial industry and higher education to create something really lovely and empowering for women. I am confident that each woman who walks through our doors will be changed. She will leave the retreat feeling refreshed, encouraged and supported.
With that in mind, here are three tips for overcoming overwhelm.
Get financial documents organized - Start by gathering and copying information as it comes it.
Be sure to get plenty of rest - I know that sounds simple, but we really need to make sure we are taking care of ourselves to build a reserve during times of additional stress.
Set boundaries - It is important to be intentional about how we spend our time, our energy and our money. And, it is OK to say no.
We will be diving deeper into all of these tips during the retreat, but I wanted to provide a few tips/reminders to get you started.
The Reaching Forward Retreat is limited to 5-7 participants. The next retreat will be offered on June 9 & 10. To reserve your spot, click here.
