How to have more time
(and feel calmer and happier too)
Perhaps you’ve tried to make more space in your day but it just never seems possible. Maybe you’ve managed to create a little time for yourself but you're struggling to find more than a few minutes here and there. Or perhaps you’re craving the spaciousness in your diary the lockdowns gave you.
If you could just…
…you’d not be stressed, you’d feel calm, relaxed, peaceful and life would be great.
But somehow this never quite happens. And so on the cycle goes – always needing and never having more time.
Until now. This is the course for you.
How to have more time
(and feel calmer and happier too)
You can claim your time and along with it your calm and joy. You can feel free, light and expansive. You can bring ease, focus, and a sense of rootedness into your day.
You can feel at peace with the number of hours in the day instead of always wishing there were more. You can drop the juggling act, the striving to get on top of things and the trying to keep up.
Here you can take control (and discover what that really means) of your time – how you use it, the demands made on it, where your energy goes, how, where and with whom you want to spend your time – so that you feel more calm, grounded, relaxed and free. And all while still being the caring, thoughtful, generous, responsible woman you are.
“I love your combination of wise, insightful information and your calm grounded energy. You deliver facts and valuable information in ways that are easy to digest and absorb and therefore use.”
You don’t have to ditch your responsibilities, your life, your family, your work, and run away to live in a hut on the beach or a cabin in the mountains (unless you want to). You won’t be heartless, uncaring or mean. You won’t become someone you’re not to have more time, and feel calmer and happier to boot too.
Just think for a moment:
Our society tells us that we need to be doing more, striving for more, giving more, it glorifies busyness and tricks you into believing your worth – who you are – is directly connected to how productive you are. And that takes up your time, your energy, your brain space, your creativity, your enjoyment of life.
But you were not put on this planet purely to uphold the patriarchal, capitalist structure of our society. You are here to thrive, to make the difference you want, to love, to spend the time you have in your one wild and precious life in ways that feel nourishing, rewarding, authentic, powerful, and uplifting to you.
“You understand the guilt I feel about pretty much everything!”
You will save:
You will get more:
Let’s be clear: this isn’t about being more productive, or busier, or getting up earlier, or finding hacks so you can cram more into your days. This isn’t about you pushing through, working harder, or exhausting yourself trying to make every waking minute useful.
This is about how shifting your relationship with, and perception of, time – and with who and what takes up your time – will free you to have more time, and along with it feel calmer and happier too.
While that is justification enough for you investing your energy and yes, time, into this, let’s remember that you are not an island. How you are, how you feel, how you behave ripples out to those around you.
So everyone else in your life benefits from you feeling more at ease, more spacious, more relaxed, more rooted, more joyful because you have more time.
This course is not going to require you to set aside tonnes of time and fill out copious workbooks – you don’t have the time, that’s why you’re here!
“Thank you for Spacious, it was wonderful. I love the ROBA exercise, so brilliant for calming the fizzy brain. It's a very 'meaty course' and one that I will return to again and again as there was so much in it.”
Often we think that once we’ve over this hurdle, once something is finished, life will calm down and we’ll have more time. But really, the only way our lives slow down is when a global pandemic forces us to stop. You don’t want to need a pandemic to create space in your life, you want to do that for yourself.
By joining Spacious you are taking action to claim your time, to create and protect the space in your life that you want and need, to feel the calm, the assuredness, the joy that comes with it.
By the end of Spacious you will:
“The fact that you have been through all the things that I've struggled with all my life, it makes me feel reassured and gives me courage to embark on an exciting new way of life.”
I know what it's like to have the weight of time pressure heavy on my shoulders. In my corporate career I swapped my heels for flats with the sole reason of getting across the office quicker to save time – yes, really – and nearly burned out because of it.
I spent so much of my time trying not to let anyone down, trying not to make a mistake, doing what other people needed me to, being accommodating and flexible and helpful, it meant there was little time left over for what I wanted and little energy to do it.
Discovering how I was valuing my time, where, how and on what I was spending it, shifting my thinking around how I used my time, and taking action to reclaim my time has had a revolutionary effect on my stress levels and my happiness.
As a certified international life and positive psychology coach I have supported individuals and organisations such as The Prince’s Trust, CareFirst, Design Nation and Choose to be Healthy Coalition in the US, for more than six years.
As a writer I have written for and being featured in many magazines such as Psychologies, Breathe, The Simple Things, Happy News and the Daily Express newspaper.
I host the Pressing Pause podcast, I’ve been interviewed as a guest on other podcasts and invited to speak at events. Through my one to one coaching, online courses and workshops I've helped more than 2,100 women find more space, peace, calm and joy in their daily lives.
