do you also wear a lot of caps?
Most of us wear many different "caps" every day. At home, there is often more than one kind - for example, you can be a father, a spouse, and a stepfather all at once. At work, you might be both an employee and a manager. And in social settings, family life, and free time, there are even more roles.
If you change direction in life, whether privately - like a divorce - or professionally, you put on additional caps.
My own professional life has taken me through the private job market, the public sector, and most recently, self-employment. Along the way, I have stumbled over my own caps due to stress because I have been running too fast, also physically, and have had accidents and mishaps and fractures, etc.
After an diagnosis as a chronic pain patient, and when the chief physician at the Pain Clinic at OUH (Odense University Hospital) only had epilepsy medication or Mindfulness to choose from, I chose Mindfulness, and it was life-changing.
I subsequently changed my life, completely exited the treatment system, and no longer consider myself a chronic pain patient. I have also figured it out now:
In my opinion, a healthy cycle determines your well-being and balance, regardless of where you are in life.
For example, I am Mette, a mother, and a business owner. In that order;
If I am not Mette first and do the things that are right and important to me, I cannot be the mother I want to be for my two boys. My business is important because it contributes to making me Mette, and that's why the cycle is connected.
I prioritize my time and energy relentlessly. It hasn't always been that way. Like many others, I have suffered from "consideration inflammation" and made myself available and tried to live up to many things and demands. But the cycle works now because I take my own medicine and use my own tools.
I still wear many caps every day. You surely do too. Don't stumble over them.
Since the start of my business in 2014, my main focus has been to help people who have stumbled due to stress and anxiety, to resurface so they can breathe again.
With more than 5,000 invoices sent and almost the same themes in the chair every day, I have now set a new goal:
Fewer people should be helped just to be able to breathe. More people should instead fly freely.
That's why I have, among other things, written the critically acclaimed stress book, "The Frog in the Pot," and do talks and workshops both in Denmark and abroad.
My mission is to help as many people as possible to get their hands on the good life. Anything less won't do. Period.
