Consultants reading this know we do what we love, and we work smarter, not harder, doing it. At our corporate headquarters, it’s no different. We put our heart and soul into everything we do for our Pure Romance family, and sometimes that means there’s little time for resting.
Last month, our staff worked tirelessly, day and night during National Training so we gave back to them with a special thank you – desk-side massages! My motto has always been to make sure you take time to pamper and reward yourself for a job well done. If you’re not healthy, you’re not going to be much help to anyone else – and our business is all about helping others!
One thing I’ve found life changing is yoga, meditation and just breathing and I’m not the only one! Recent Harvard studies found that the brain actually changes after long-term meditation and mindfulness. There have been many times I’ve been working on something at my desk and I stop and realize my shoulders are tense and my breath is short – I’ve learned to let go and let my body be at peace. We also reinforce this with our staff offering meditation and yoga through certified trainers at our office. It helps keep us in check and ultimately balanced and healthy.
Life is moving faster than ever. If you’re a Pure Romance Consultant, I strongly recommend looking into these types of classes in your community. You would be amazed how much it can impact your business. Just focusing on your breathing and releasing stress from your body before a party can make a world of a difference in how your customers respond to you and even your sales! When I’m on the road, I’ve found that a lot of our Consultants are using these wonderful techniques already – it shows they are putting themselves first; that might sound narcissistic to some, but I disagree. There’s an old saying I grew up with: “If Mama ain’t happy, aint’ nobody happy!” and there’s something to be said for that. If we can’t find outlets to get rid of and manage our stress, we just aren’t of use to anyone. That being said…take a few moments and just breathe!
