This Specialist Spotlight session is with Aysha Madha from Caloo Life talking about life, pandemic and looking after yourself!
Aysha 3 bits of guidance are fascinating, as we think about lockdowns, the pandemic and as we move forward into a new world where Covid exists:
- Be kind to yourself, acknowledge your emotions and contextualise your feelings ex. during the pandemic you might have felt anxious but there were a lot of others feeling this way and this is a ‘normal’ response..
- When something happens traumatically this raises uncertainty about if it is then repeated – so again this is a completely normal reaction so allow accpetance, be kind to yourself, give it some thought, and aware other people are along side you
- be conscious of your zones when finding something new or challenging; comfort zone (imagine a small circle), growth zone (a larger circle around the smaller one) and overwhelm (outer circle) and allow yourself to take small steps as you expand into the outer zone circles
These Specialist Spotlight sessions shine a light on industry experts, most are entrepreneurs and small business owners who share their insights and experiences in conversation with me, Sarah Bates.
Why? because I think it is important to listen to a wide range of different perspectives and get people comfortable with video because it is the way forward! We have a zoom, we stream live and we have a great chat – what is there not to like about that!
Interested in having your own Specialist Spotlight – then please get in touch as I’d love to hear from you.
