Hey there, my name is Alison Brehme and I’m a workaholic. This is not something that’s easy for me to admit and in fact I can’t believe I’m even typing it for you to see. I feel though, I have to be honest with you and tell you a little bit about me. I’ve had a job since I was 13 and after college I worked in the corporate world for over 12 years and during that time I struggled. It started out as a way to cope when a relationship with the man I thought I was going to marry ended, but before I knew it that “coping mechanism” became a habit. I didn’t even realize the habits I was creating and by the time I did I didn’t know how to break out of the cycle. The reality was that I was focused on my career and doing well; however, secretly I was unhappy. Can you relate?
Do you feel like you are using work to escape from life?
Do you feel like work is eating up time that should be spent with your family or friends?
Do you feel like your health has taken a back seat to other things in your life?
If so, you are not alone. That’s how I felt too.
Three days after the video above was recorded, I ended up in the hospital for a week. This isn’t the first time that I worked myself into pain or sickness. But after that experience I knew I needed some additional help so I hired a coach and I still work them today.
I believe there is no “one size fits all” answer or a magic pill that can help you or me snap out of it. We are all unique and it takes time to sit down with yourself and really understand what it is you want from life. Sometimes it’s hard to find the time to do this or we have been in our stuff for so long that it’s hard to fit all the pieces together on our own. That’s why I coach women 1-on-1 so we can dig deep and get to the root cause of what’s going on in your life so we can put a stop to the madness and create a life you love. Imagine, what it would be like if you could finally stop overworking, get your health back on track and enjoy life again?
