Beyond the chatter in your head. Connect with your intuition

If I had to name one practice that is crucial for me feeling balanced, one practice that is crucial for me making choices that bring me energy and joy… then it is my daily practice of finding of silence and stillness- in meditation. It keeps me from being too much in my head. It reconnects […]

boundaries

About boundaries and saying no

This Monday I posted a card on Instagram (@samulamescher) about boundaries as inspiration for the week ahead. Knowing your boundaries and setting and maintaining boundaries are crucial for you making the impact you want to make and crucial for you feeling energized and balanced! But we often struggle with our boundaries. Not feeling our boundaries […]

About Mindfulness

I have been meditating on a daily basis since 2010. At first I did not share much about this with other people. Afraid that people might consider this to be woo woo, or consider me to be a bit woo woo (“zweverig”  in Dutch). I do talk about it freely now, often integrate elements of […]

pain

Thoughts on (physical) pain

Yesterday it happened again. I was stopped in my tracks by acute lower backpain (lumbago). This is not unusual for me, it happens a few times each year. So it is not something new and I know what to do. Everytime it happens I feel frustrated and sad. These are the first emotions that come […]

How I renew my focus and nurture myself during the summer

Here in the Netherlands the school holidays have started in part of the country.  The start of a relatively quiet time in a lot of organisations. Lot’s of colleagues are on holiday, less meetings, some projects seem to be on hold for a while, customers are on holiday, no lessons or courses at institutions. What […]

worried

Feeling down or worried? This helps!

Last week a new book came in. This is not very special because I just love reading books. Fiction and nonfiction. I just love to learn and be inspired! I am always reading multiple books at the same time. This new book was on the neuroscience of anxiety and depression. The day it arrived, I dove […]

Ambition is about meaning. Not about money, status or climbing the career ladder.

Yesterday I hosted a free online workshop on how to combine your ambitions with finding a healthy work- life balance. And what became very clear from the conversation we had about ambition was that for the participants being ambitious is not about money or status or about just wanting to climb the career ladder. No […]

small steps

Small steps, big impact

Last week I went to the store to get some file folders. When it was my turn at the counter, I grabbed my wallet…only to discover I had left it at home. So I told the cashier, “Please leave it.  I’ll have to come back for it later because I forgot my wallet. “ Then […]

A coach on work-life balance doesn’t feel balanced all the time

A couple of weeks ago I was meeting with a potential client about giving workshops on work-life balance in their organisation. At one point during the meeting the training advisor of this organisation asked me: Do you feel balanced all the time? My honest answer was: no. It is not like once you know how […]

Mild

Mildness & kindness help you when you long for change!

Knowing what you need to do to find balance does not mean  you will feel balanced all the time. The circumstances of your life might change. Or maybe when you have felt balanced for quite some time, you give your balance less attention. Or the push and pull of all the demands in your life […]

What you do when you are tired or stressed is often the opposite of what you need

Do you know what you do when you are tired or stressed? What is your automatic behaviour? Do you know what the tell-tale signs are in your behaviour? What behaviours serve as a red flag? Often these behaviours are automatic and we are not consciously aware of them.  When you are tired or stressed do […]

balance

Maybe I should just get a simpler job to find balance

Sarah is a very talented and driven academic and is also recognized as such by her peers and her supervisors. She publishes well, is innovative, shows management skills and also grabs her chances to be a visiting scholar abroad. And she comes to me for coaching because she struggles with her work-life balance. When talking […]
