On this episode, we chat with Sarah Marie Liddle, a certified professional coach for small businesses and individuals seeking to live well and productively. She is based out of Canberra, Australia, where she offers positive psychology and wellness tools to help professionals bring more balance and productivity into their day. You’ll hear how Sarah Marie integrated the techniques of small scale happiness into her life in order to reach her goals, and what we all stand to lose if we focus on fixed goals. We also talk about the danger that being too focused on goals poses to your happiness and the importance of having pure intentions when we pursue them. Sarah Marie highlights some of the signs of burnout and offers some practical solutions for when they start to arise. Next, she tells us why she believes that a lot of the best things in life require maintenance, like your relationships and your body. She introduces us to two great tools to manage burnout: manage your schedule and be cautious about who and what you let into your life. We talk about the life-changing power of being well-rested and well-nourished and the decision-making technique that starts with imagining your best day ever and building from there. We hope you join us for an episode full of compassionate advice and practical tips today!
