Most women go through life with a lot of “shoulds” weighing on their shoulders, and a fear that if they don’t do exactly what they’re “supposed” to do, that they will lose everything. “The majority of my clients are women, and I see a lot of lady bosses,” McCann says. “It can be daunting and scary to tell a woman that’s juggling so many balls in the air to slow down, to let the balls fall.” The key is to let go of those fears and expectations that keep you trapped. That’s not as easy as snapping a finger, of course, but it can be done.
People often feel like they have to take the time to slow down before they can do so, but that can keep you caught in the busy cycle. “There’s only so much time in the day, something may have to go to the wayside today, right?” McCann says. “So there’s an ebb and flow and give and take and I think that’s where people run into an issue as well.”
