Prioritizing and Bringing Balance to Your Life

In this episode we’re talking about Martin Short’s 9 categories of self-evaluation. This is based on an interview that he did where he shared that every year he takes stock of where he is in his life in the following areas: Self, Immediate Family, Original Family, Friends, Money, Career, Creativity, Discipline and Lifestyle.

By taking a moment to look at these categories or areas of your life, it quickly becomes apparent that there is so much more to our existence than our career.

Short credits this outlook as helping him to prioritize what’s truly important in life but also uses them as a means to bring balance and be in a place of gratitude.

Practicing Niksen: The Art of Doing Nothing

Please join Denise and Samantha as they discuss Niksen, the Dutch concept of doing nothing. Niksen is not to be confused with meditation or mindfulness but instead it is being intentional about doing absolutely nothing.

The goal of Niksen is to take a step back from whatever you are doing and just let everything be as it is without actually being an active participant. It’s much harder than it sounds!

Ideally, practicing Niksen allows the mind to wander as in daydreaming, which in turn can lead to enhanced creativity, productivity and a less judgmental, calmer approach to life!
