Hi Samantha,

Thank you for your post, to be honest, I have completely forgotten to write an update.

As far as my progress is concerned, well, let’s say the end of the term does not really help me with my goal – get work-life balance. However, I must say I started to run, I have run more than 40 km since our session. Even if I don’t have any particular schedule, I usually go for a run when I feel that I need a break, to reset my brain and clean my head out. Just me, my ipod, (cold weather), and 30 minutes of nothing :)

Regarding the podcasts, I have listened to one of the podcasts. Well, I think it is not for me, I found myself a bit impatient, I had a problem to calm down and actually relax. I know myself well, and I know how my mind work. And I think this won't help me.

Oh, and I will set the second action point:

2. to attend the workshop on time-management during this second term! Will be definitely useful for getting the balance!

What do you think Samantha? Do you have any other ideas which might help me with it?

Thanks for reading and all the best,

    Hi Natalia
    thanks for your blog entry. How do you find that running specifically helps with developing your emotional intelligence? With regard to the podcasts, if you find it difficult to be patient with yourself whilst you learn to relax, I encourage you to keep trying – like building up physical muscles, it is essential to repeat exercises without feeling instant results – you may like to seek out some different podcasts that you prefer, or maybe try mindfulness see http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/services/tutors/counselling/informationpages/whatismindulness/ and perhpas register on the workshop http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/services/tutors/counselling/workshops/mindfulness/.
    Good idea to attend the time management workshop. I look forward to reading your follow up blog.
