You get shit done.
Your middle name is “hustle.” You can easily advise people how to structure their to-do list for efficiency. “I can’t do it” is considered a dirty word in your vocabulary. You inspire the crap out of people around you. “I wish I could do all the stuff you do” is a phrase you hear so often it barely registers anymore. Your friends and family are always amused by your free-spirit and ability to take on new and seemingly crazy projects without fear.
The price of getting shit done can be a high one.
There’s a secret life that you don’t talk about in public and rarely share with anyone. It involves mini-anxiety attacks around all the stuff you’ve piled up your plate. You’ve become accustomed to the breakdowns that involve crying uncontrollably and consuming a large amount of cheeseburgers/ice-cream/french fries/strong whiskey while not showering and spending way too much time in your sweats. You’re really good at pushing through the rough times but it’s exhausting. Your projects are so important to you but sometimes you feel like you just want to throw your hands in the air and give it all up.
When I say I get it, I really mean it.
I’ve been there. I’ve had the “I’VE HAD ENOUGH!” breakdown on plenty of occasions. I’ve driven to Wendy’s and stuffed my face with cheeseburgers at 11pm at night while crying in my car. I’ve called people for support and had the well-intentioned but totally useless conversations (you, know the one, the one where they tell you to either “relax” or “it’ll get better” or “you’ll feel happier after you get some sleep” and it somehow makes you feel worse).
It’s why I want to help you.
I know you’re trying to take care of yourself while also doing the things that are important to you. I also understand that you don’t have time to meditate for 2 hours a day, eat organic at every meal, and practice your yoga without fail. I’m not going to give you a list of things you have to do because I know you’ve already got a list about a mile high. I’m going to help you to look at that list a little more clearly so you can really see where your energy is being heightened and where it is being drained. Once you’ve gotten that established you’ll be able to change the way you’ve been tackling your to-do list in a way that actually supports who you are and what you believe in. Making this shift will make all the difference in the world on how getting shit done will actually make you feel.
You can’t afford not to make a change, this pace you’re currently at never ends well for anybody.
Ok, if you really want to know more:
My name is Audrey Holst
I’ve been certified in helping people change their minds, bodies and attitudes in a really challenging environment since 2007 (aka I am a Bikram Yoga Instructor). I love teaching yoga in a heated room to a large group and I love the transformation it allows people to take. I also really dig the one-on-one approach to help people tackle the really important issues in their life so I became a Certified Professional Coach and Energy Leadership Index™ Master Practitioner through the The Institute of Professional Excellence in Coaching (iPEC). What this means for you is I take my job (aka helping you to live the most satisfyingly sane life possible) seriously.When I’m not teaching class or changing people’s lives you can find me taking a nap, drinking tea, having impromptu dance parties, hanging out with my amazing friends, or teaching myself how to hula-hoop.
