My life changed when I realised work was killing me.
I spent my twenties in a haze of anxiety, depression, disordered eating and burnout. When I was 22, I passed out in the bathroom on the way to work. The ulcers which developed in my mouth immediately afterwards saw me bed ridden and unable to eat for two weeks.
At 24, I couldn't stand up one day after working 24 / 7 for months, skipping meals and hitting the gym at all hours. I was diagnosed with anxiety and depression and adrenal fatigue from over working and was ordered to bed rest for six weeks, unable to work.
At age 27, I was sleeping at work trying to make deadlines in a bid to impress my superiors. When I was made redundant; I was relieved. Having skipped meals and social occasions months; I was absolutely exhausted.
My world started changing when I started addressing my demons and starting blogging about my experiences as the Happiness Concierge. I now run a kick ass training business which helps others ace their work and lives all around the world.
My workshops are available globally through the General Assembly network and I am regularly called upon to deliver workshops and talks to major businesses such as PowerCor, AGL, Reserve Bank of Australia, WINK Models, RMIT University, meet-ups, and networks.
