Boundaries in the animal care industry
Do you struggle to set boundaries? Or try to, and they inevitably fail? Or worse, your team gets frustrated at you for them?
The animal care industry doesn’t make boundaries easy – we want to help, we want to do well, and the culture of trying to do it all means we feel bad leaving our colleagues when we know we should go home.
But all the advice on setting boundaries makes it sound so simple; as if you can just decide on your boundary and never break it. But we know the reality isn’t like that
If you know you need boundaries but continually struggle to hold them, you MUST watch this video.
Which wolf wins?
There's an old proverb about the two wolves. There's a wolf that represents positivity, lightness, and good emotions. And there's a wolf that represents darkness, frustrations, and negativity...
Which wolf wins? Watch this video!
Can one job give us everything we need?
We're in the pursuit of a role that is both engaging and fulfilling, striking the right balance without being overly stressful.
We want to work alongside colleagues who feel like family. We want to be compensated that reflects our efforts, all within the confines of a 9-to-5 workday.
Is it possible to find a single job that ticks all these boxes? Here's my take.
Is stress bad for us?
When is stress okay, and when is it not? Stress can be overwhelming, but sometimes it actually helps us get our work done.
In this video, we will recognise when stress can be a beneficial asset or if it's negatively impacting our mental and physical health, and it is time to employ stress reduction techniques.
You know how when people talk about their lives, they always throw in the word "busy"? It feels like a universal thing, right?
Everyone seems to be caught up in this whole busyness trend. But honestly, I think it's about time we stop going on about how busy we are for a couple of good reasons.
