Designing belonging.



What is belonging?

Belonging is a whole lot of different things to different people, but in simple terms:

To feel belonging = the inner certainty that this life, even though it might not be easy, is the one you're meant to live.

Burnout is a state of physical, emotional, and mental exhaustion that results from prolonged exposure to stress. It often involves feeling overwhelmed, emotionally drained, and a sense of reduced accomplishment or effectiveness.

To feel burned out = the inner certainty that this life, even though it might be of your own creation, can't be the one you're meant to live.

Focussing on Belonging is to design a life you don't need to recover from.

It's the best burnout prevention strategy you can invest in.

how does it relate to burnout?

So I dare you to take control & become, once more, enthusiastic about your life.

Being able to savor life is a wellbeing strategy.

"It's important to have a place that you know as your home.

One place where people know you, they've seen you grow up. Where people don't have to make up a story about who you are.

It’s what keeps me grounded."

Michelle is right.

But people who live an international life can’t base home on a single location.

Expats need to create a space where they recognize themselves. A place where you know you can grow and you consciously write that story of who you want to be.

-Michelle Obama
