Work Less Live More

wp-1485628538269.png
Now, I love an assertive person. Someone who likes to get the job done, and done right. But the idea that you have to work hard to get this done is more damaging than helpful- especially in the field of birth work.
Okay, now don’t go get all worked up. It’s just not me. Science proves it.
Researchers and scientists studying complex neural networks, resting states and active states of the brain suggest that during downtime our brains go into something called “Default Mode Network” (DMN).
Earlier DMN was thought of to be useless. That it did nothing. Soon it was found that they were wrong.
The DMN is now connected to having epiphanies, making better decisions, having a better memory and more creativity.
Could you imagine how your work will be with better decision making? With more creativity? With better epiphanies (or intuitive nudge)?
For those who offer birth work services like you and me, that is all that matters. Can we be more creative, more certain, more energized? If we can, we can win the world by saving more lives and time!
I found this research a few years ago while studying for my NLP Certification. I was reminded in an email today that inspired me to ask myself the question:
“How do I create more downtime in my life and still be prosperous in birth work?”
This would eventually lead me to get creative. I needed a system that was not the basic 40 hour per week routine. So I created a system where I work only 4 hours a day, 5 days a week. That’s 20 hours a week. In that time, I not only run InTune Mother, but I also have a coaching/consulting business, and I am a homeschool mom of 4 boys, plus a board member of two maternal health organizations.
It sounds impossible, but it is not. Let me be clear, I want to get this science down to working only 4 hours per week. Here are some of the principles I am using so I can craft this reality for myself. This will help you, too. The goal here is to get pass the bondage of job descriptions as self descriptions. You offer birth work to your clients. You are NOT a birth worker.

Principle 1: The Pareto Principle
The Pareto principle states that“roughly 80% of effects come from 20% of causes”.
Simply put, a few clients create more high impact results. What I found was that: If you take the 20% of clients that seem to create the most high impact results, you’ll still end up trying to facilitate too many services. What we must do is go deeper and find the 20% of this 20%.
Essentially finding one or two services that make the most impact in your work.
This should help you find a few sets of services that you need to focus in on.

Principle 2: Parkinson’s Law
Parkinson’s law states that:work expands to fill the time available for its completion”.
That means if you assign 2 hours to do something, it will take 2 hours. If you assign 20 hours, it will take 20 hours.
That would mean if we could assign a set time to serve a client we will tend to complete it in that time. This principle is a little fickle. It doesn’t work all the time. But it does work most of the time.

Principle 3: Deep Work
Cal Newport wrote a book called “Deep Work”.
In summary, the book argues that if you assign dedicated time to something, you’ll be more likely to create better quality work over a short period of time vs the same quality of work taking longer time if you are constantly interrupted.
This means, if we can find a way to be uninterrupted, we can create phenomenal outcomes over a short period of time.

Here is where the magic happens:
When you use these three principles while understanding the requirement of downtime in your life, you would realize:
You can find the key clients, schedule them in your calendar for a specific block of time, in a place where you are uninterrupted and surely you can get your services done in the delegated amount of time, with much higher quality.
This can then create more downtime or free time for you in REAL LIFE.

Here is the glitch in our plan:
Often, when we create free time in our lives we end up wasting it on social media or watching television. I’ve made this same mistake. The secret to really being able to use this free time as FREE TIME. This is the time to schedule day to day lifestyle routines at that you normally neglect. Like, doing laundry, loading the dishwasher, or even taking a nap.
You get where I’m going. Now let’s flip the script…
My question for you is: How are you creating “downtime” or “free time” in your life as a person who offers birth work services?

Can Community Centered Health Care Save Black Women From Loosing Out Under the GOP Health Plan

In this article we will see how detrimental the GOP Health Plan is to Black Women’s Health. We believe that it will cause more disparities for the Black population than many are prepared for. Our plan for Community Centered Health Care can be an easy solution. 

After accounting for amendments to the American Health Care Act (AHCA) currently being considered by the U.S. House of Representatives, the latest estimate from the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO) found that the GOP’s plan still would increase the number of uninsured people in the country to 24 million by 2026.

Even before CBO released its initial report, health policy experts and pundits across the board were warning that more people will be left without insurance than ever before under the GOP’s health bill.

“To be okay with 24 million people not having access to the care they need amounts to nothing more than a blatant disregard for the lives of Americans,” said the Black Women’s Health Imperative, a D.C.-based advocacy organization, in a recent email. “By moving forward with this repeal legislation, Congress is sending a message to the American people that their health is secondary to savings in the federal budget.”

Your Ticket To Culturally Centered Self-Care

What is self-care and how do we decided what is most necessary for us to thrive in everyday life?

Well here are 13 ways to get started.

1.) Make sure that you celebrate yourself in various ways other than birthday’s or special occasions.

2.) If it feels wrong to you, then don’t do it. This is your Inner-G talking to you, so listen up.

3.) Get plenty of good rest. Sleeping in when you can and taking naps are good for restoring your time and energy sequence.

4.) Use your words with integrity. Speak exactly what you mean and be okay with it.

5.) Stop trying to please everyone. Self preservation is the first law in nature. Apply this law to yourself.

6.) Trust your intuition. This is an innate an primal power that we all possess. Learn how to get deeper into the consciousness of listening for your clues unconsciously.

7.) Talking bad about yourself is the worst! Talking bad about others is just as bad. When speaking about yourself, make sure that you are making positive affirmations to the best parts of you. Just as speaking positively about others can manifest good things for you too. Life and death is REALLY in the power of the tongue.

8.) Dream big, far, and wide. Then go after them without ceasing. When you go after what you want in life, it feels good to have an inspired intention. And self-care is ultimately about doing what feels good.

9.) Saying No, is a good thing. Feel confident that you know what is best for you and that saying no to something right now does not mean you can not revisit the idea at another time.

10.) Saying Yes, is also a good thing. It is actually pretty damn powerful. When you say yes to things, it sends a high vibrational frequency out into the Universe that bounces off of your words and intentions by adding more abundance to your life.

11.) Get InTune to kindness. The best thing you can do is treat yourself. Taking time to perform small acts of kindness for yourself, helps you articulate your ideas of kindness to others in a productive way.

12.) Let go of being in control. The way this life is set up- It is important to learn how to be in the flow. This is a critical part of our commitment to wellness. The more we stress on being in control, the harder it is to be flexible with the magic of managing expectations of others and ultimately ourselves.

13.) Drama and negativity are the assassin’s of good self-care. There are certain things that happen in our lives that lead us back to #12. One way to repell the drama and negatively is to speak power over the situation. Use words that defuse and empower vulnerable or less favorable times. It works like a magnet.

And I have a small BONUS point I want to offer you.

Number 14

LOVE. “Love is thee highest law and only true religion”. This is a great quote that came to me some time ago while on a journey to find out what  (religion) was most suitable for me. In doing so, I found that most reliable spiritual sources all led back to LOVE. Henceforth came the way I define self-care… By showing love to myself first and this affects the way I express value of others in my path.

I hope this post helps those of you who read it. As a tribe of dedicated non-medical spiritual practitioners, we are looking forward to connecting with you on how to move closer towards the empowerment and freedom lifestyle you can and WILL have.

Stay INTUNE!
