By myhitlife
IT Consultant living in hotels 4-5 days a week maintaining a healthy work/ life balance since September. Sharing her tips/ hacks each day on what keeps her consistent. I’m not a fitness professional! I’m an IT Consultant, but most importantly due to my consistency I’m always mistaken as one. I will not be a victim of my circumstances. Most importantly however I want to help others in the same career be that little bit better. I don’t want to be admired, I want to inspire. Breaking the mould of the traditional Consultant. Food prep with no fridge/ cooker. IG, Twitter and Facebook - myhitlife
How to Break The Wall in 6 Hours
This to me is one of the most valuable podcasts I’ve ever created. If you saw how I was yesterday you’d understand. I led in my bed for 6 hours feeling so sorry for myself and even considered quitting. However, by using these techniques I turned it all around in 3 hours! All my normal social media goals, Titan goals and then recorded 7 podcasts, 7 vlogs, tiktoks, 7 IGTV videos and a blog!

Being Selfaware
Sometimes in life we have mental breakdowns. And why is this? We deny our DNA and try to be something we are not. I now have intense gratitude for my career.

50/50 My Friends
When I start getting bad days or weeks and go into victim mode I have to constantly remind myself that life is 50/50. Also, that I’m extremely blessed as realistically I only ever experience 20/80.

Don’t Beat Yourself Up
This is vital! The more we hate on ourselves the more we will seek things to comfort us. That’s where the overeating and over drinking habits come into play. Accept you’re human and move on!

Your guilt is your advantage. How do you think I’ve been showing up every day on social media for nearly 2 years when I don’t feel like it. So on Saturdays now I create my content because I promised my team I’d be there.

Thank you!
I’ve hit over 15,000 listens. Please know when I created this podcast I expected maybe 50 listens maximum! For years and years I was told, “You talk too much” and, “Just shut up”. Please don’t let opinions of others stop you! If you got value to bring, then bring it! I show up everyday since June 2017 and therefore, have built up credibility for just an IT Consultant. If I can, you can!

The no 4G Test
This is one way to break up with social media. Or reveal to yourself the levels you will go to get on social media. It’s extremely interesting to watch our own behavior. In order to change anything we must first be aware we are doing it.

As you could see the hustle was extremely real on the bank holiday weekend. I just realized how ahead of the game I am! How wonderful! Sometimes in life you feel so behind and beat yourself up.

Recharge Tactics
Okay let’s not pretend we haven’t got commitments. Sometimes we can’t just go away at the drop of a hat and we are stuck in the same locations for months at a time. Each weekly I do this activity to recharge me ready for the next week. Otherwise I’d feel trapped so taking some head space always helps. But when I do have time trust and believe I’m out of the country.
03:40
April 24, 2019
Content Preparation
Listen I don’t believe oh I’m on holiday so I’m not going to show up. It’s a non negotiable in my eyes. Who am I to think my time is more valuable than anyone else’s! I’m seriously so grateful people show up daily to listen to my content! So I had to prepare 1 weeks worth of content beforehand! Trust me I’m seriously surprised at how much I do, but also, how easy it was to do by ploughing through! Going forward I will utilize this so I can appreciate my week days even more!

How to change your thought process
Since July I’ve been listening to The Life Coach School and it’s actually changed my life. Or in a way confirmed my thought process. Sometimes, because we don’t think the same as others we worry if there’s something wrong with us... well I did anyways. I recently went into hospital, but I just didn’t worry even with a bad diagnosis I held it together until I had my results. All my results was normal. But could you imagine if I listened I would’ve been so stressed waiting 3 weeks to find out.

Best Room Service Choices
It’s so easy to get into the habit of ordering pizza and ice cream each night. Trust me I know ha. So I preplan my evening meals to avoid this. One day a week I’d have then a so called, “cheat meal”. I view food as protein, carbs & veg so it makes it a lot easier for me. Instead of being on a diet where it’s like you need chicken, rice and veg etc. Be flexible... you are a consultant after all. You have no choice.

What Nearly Dying Taught Me
Recently I’ve been in the hospital and how I’ve reacted to it I think is completely different from your average person. Is it because I’m stronger or more cold?
