‘TAKE care’ – it is a nice way to say goodbye to somebody when finishing a conversation. But how many people actually take that time to take care of themselves. Try a Brain Dump.
Business mindset is about having clear thoughts but many businessmen and women have so many things going on in their mind that they are muddled before they start.
Work is overwhelming, the jobs put off from yesterday are now piling on top of the jobs today, and there are domestic issues at home to cope with. The school run has to be done before you start.
Small wonder why business people become stressed and, when that happens, self care is usually the first thing to go out of the window – and things just get worse.
Dr Bridget Kirsop, one of South Wales’ leading Certified NLP Master Coaches and Trainers, has worked with hundreds of sole traders, partnerships, business directors and company owners to improve their mindset and teach them to cope with the stresses encountered.
And she recommends a tool that a friend of hers, Jo Bendle, who had NLP training with Dr Bridget, recommended.
It is called ‘Brain Dump’ and spending an hour clearing the luggage from the brain once or twice a week works wonders.
Ahead of this week’s National Self Care Week, Dr Bridget said: “What you need to do is get an hour where you have no interruptions. You take a sheet of paper and write down everything in your head and your ‘To Dos’. When I did this, I had three hundred things on my ‘To Do’ list.
“It is remarkable how clearer you become by doing this.”
Self care is a crucial part of life, and Dr Bridget helps business owners, directors, managers and employers to control the negative aspects and become more positive.
She added: “You have so much going on in your head that you get stuck. It is not helpful from a productivity point of view. Whether you are running a business or at home, there is some stuff going around in your head unless you are very organised.”
Dr Bridget is holding new NLP and Mastermind training in 2018 where she will be improving people’s mindset and helping them to grow.
Then, when somebody says ‘take care’, you will be able to reply ‘I am, thanks’.
