Introducing Featured Resilience Speaker … Nicole Batiste

Part 3/5 –  Be the Conductor

Written by Leah Skurdal

Where do you fall on the spectrum of the work life and personal life interface? The lines between work and home have blurred with technology’s assistance in working from home.

In many ways, I love the flow of my entrepreneurial work-from-home-when-I-choose lifestyle. I can work on my laptop from my hammock in the backyard and take time for a 45-minute conversation with my daughter who rarely calls. On the other hand, the lines of my working/not working interface get fuzzy and indistinct. Downtime is good for your wellbeing and I’m still practicing being the conductor of my life, as featured resilience speaker, Nicole Batiste says.

How are you doing on conducting your life into a balance of work life and personal life?

Americans as a whole have a tougher time separating work life from personal time compared with other countries.

A recent study by Family Living Today and Now Sourcing reported on work-life balance across the country. A Maryville University blog post highlighted the findings:

  • The United States ranks 30th out of 38 countries in attaining proper work-life balance.
  • American full-time workers spend an average of 8.15 hours per day working.
  • 11 percent of Americans work 50 or more hours per week.
  • 33 percent of employed Americans work on Saturdays, Sundays, or holidays.
  • 66 percent of American full-time employees do not strongly believe they have a work-life balance.

My personal conversations with employees confirm the studies. I have learned that their workplace stressors came from bad bosses, miscommunications, rapidly changing priorities, rigid schedules, and long work hours.

The study noted that increased work-life imbalance relates to increased levels of mental stress. For instance, when compared with employees working 35 to 40 hours a week, employees working more than 55 hours are:

  • 1.66 times more likely to have depression
  • 1.74 times more likely to have anxiety

Too much work stress weakens the immune system and contributes to mental illness, heart disease, anxiety, and depression. Having a healthy personal life outside of work life promotes health, wellbeing, and resilience.

In our second resilience-building event September 10, Resilience for Harmony: Tools, Tips & Exercises for Wellbeing, five experts will focus on incorporating different aspects of resilience into our lives.

Mindfulness Educator and Empowerment Coach Nicole Batiste will share strategies for being the conductor of your life.
Nicole reminds us,

The conductor is responsible for how the orchestra shows up to their audience.
You have that same gift and responsibility for how you show up every day. The world is your audience.
Creating an inner harmonious environment is your right, privilege, and gift to yourself and the world.

Join us at Resilience for Harmony to hear Nicole’s insights on being the conductor of your life to create the work-life-personal life balance you prefer.

Nicole Batiste is a Mindfulness Educator, Transcendence Catalyst, and Empowerment Coach helping women recognize and release past failures, pains, and outdated subconscious programming so they’re equipped to create the life they want. Radical self-reliance is one key to being resilient and able to deal with what life throws at you.
