Unlike the typical “How are you doing,” this question evokes feelings and responses that bring to mind our purpose, goals, and dreams. Sadly, most of us would agree that while we are busy, we are not balanced and though we may be prospering at work, we aren’t pleased with the quality of our lives.
Winsome Lifestyle seeks to bridge the gap between professional achievement and personal fulfillment by helping their clients achieve balance and “live well”.
So, how are you living? We invite you to test your lifestyle against our Four Pillars of Living Well.
- Are you doing the work to create the life you want? Your life should be a reflection of your vision, values, and goals. Consider this. If someone was assigned the task of discovering what you value by simply observing your actions this week, would that observation align with your vision and goals for your life? If you value, health would they see you eating right? If you value family, would your calendar reflect it?
- Are you investing in you? When was the last time you invested in your personal development? Most of us understand that advancement in our professional lives requires a commitment to professional development, coaching, and training. We even understand that changes in our physical body may require the assistance of a personal trainer or dietician. However, we fail to realize that changing our lifestyles may also require external support. Going to the next level professionally is easier when you have created an environment and lifestyle to support the transition. Doing the work personally will expedite the transition professionally, but most of us need help to do so.
- Are you organized? Professional advancement means increased responsibilities. Consequently, if you are having a hard time getting out in the morning, finding your keys, and making appointments on time, imagine how difficult it will be when you reach the next level. Organization is essential to your ability to juggle the many responsibilities and opportunities that are awaiting you. That is why Winsome Lifestyle helps its clients organize everything from their closets to calendars to meal plans.
- Are you balanced? Are you busy or productive? Balance enables you to experience productivity, peace, and pleasure – all of which are essential elements to achieving well-being. It is possible to live life without truly experiencing it. Are you present in the moment or does your mind automatically switch to what’s next? The team at Winsome Lifestyle believes that life should be a magnificent dance not a mad dash to the finish line. Our goal is to help our clients achieve life-work balance because we believe that living well will result in professional prosperity.
Consider how you are living. If you aren’t where you want to be, make your personal development a priority. After all, the only life worth living is a life that is lived well.
