Why a healthy YOU means a healthy business…
How many times have you said to yourself that you’re lacking motivation, feeling lost and don’t have the energy you need for work? You’re not alone. As business owners we are used to feeling under pressure, however for Ann that stress was starting to affect her physically and emotionally as well as mentally. Here’s her story:
Ann had been running her business for a few years, but it wasn’t going anywhere – it had become stagnant and it was overwhelming her, affecting all areas of her life. The passion and energy she had in the past was gone, and she had become withdrawn and depressed – when she came to me, she was on the verge of giving it all up.
As a Polarity Therapist, it is my role to look at the whole story to see where the pain or the blocks are coming from. It is true in all of us that our physical and emotional issues will affect us mentally, and it is here that we started to build a picture and see how Ann’s history was now affecting her future.
Having suffered a history of illness and back pain, Ann was exhausted and defeated. I needed to work on her body to release the tension in her physical self before I could start on her emotional and mental needs. Over the nearly 20 years I have been working with clients, I know that until your body is feeling less stressed and pain-free, you can’t begin to unravel the other elements – and for Ann that priority was to bring back the passion and zest for her business, and to change her negatives to a positive.
Polarity Therapy works on the theory of finding the balance between negative and positive – by finding that balance, that is where we find the space to address the challenges we face either in work or life. By listening and interpreting, as well as using physical techniques such as acupressure, reflexology, cranial sacral, muscles releasing techniques and structural realignment to name but a few, we are able to reflow and refocus the energies away from the negative and towards the positive in our search for balance.
By freeing those forces, our thoughts become clearer, pain lessens (or disappears) and we can find ourselves thinking differently and opening up to new interpretations or solutions. For Ann, this was when she recognised the underlying issues that had caused her to fall out of love with her work and allow her business to start failing. Therefore, when she was ready, we incorporated mind energy techniques to clear those blocks and introduce new energy into her work, clients and business.
Today, Ann is a different person: she is vibrant and chats happily away, she is pain-free in her body and even her posture has changed. By clearing her negativity and refocusing her energy, she has engaged with her business again and introduced better structures, processes and resources so that she can maintain, expand and now develop it further.
It is only now that she realises how her own health was mirroring the health of her business, and by taking control of herself physically and emotionally and learning to listen and understand what her body is telling her, she could then apply the energy she needed into her work and career.
