My dad is 88 years old and sits all day, silent and without hearing
It’s hard to think about, especially when so far from UK, yet I know it’s harder for him and my Mum.
It did not happen overnight.
Small decisions and choices were made (some unconsciously)
My dad’s focus was only on work.
Yes as a doctor and manager he helped so many.
He supported the whole family.
But he also lost sight of himself and his own needs.
The seeds were planted long before his retirement.
Before too long after retirement we had lost the dad we knew…
The spark in his eyes +
The mischievous smile has long faded.
Where once there were walks and nature, the arm chair is now his kingdom (Every day)
There is however a gift of this.
That once again my dad can help others
This time through me, my words, my coaching.
This is for you if work is fast becoming your sole focus.
If you are working every hour (taking on more responsibilities and carrying stress) & telling yourself that you are doing it for your family.
Please PAUSE for a second and listen to these advice (whilst you still have time)
- Surround yourself with good friends
- Keep exercising and moving
- Smile more
- Reconnect with nature
- Be grateful
- Be present
- Keep growing and helping others – have a purpose and interests outside of work
I hope this helps you and if you need anything further please DM me or reply to this email.
