The Instant Pause
a one-day retreat to reflect and recharge
Do you feel overwhelmed, stressed out, and like life is getting on top of you?
Do you sometimes feel confused and that you've lost sight of who are are and what’s important?
Are you standing on the edge of a big change and need direction and clarity before making the big leap? Are you so busy with your business, career and commitments that you feel like there is no time to pay attention to your wellbeing? Are you ignoring your needs and values? Have you stopped loving your life?
You need some time out, some time for themselves to reconnect, reflect and recharge.
The Instant Pause was developed by my wonderful teacher, Danielle Marchant. It has supported hundreds of women and men at times of change in their lives. Including me.
I last did an Instant Pause retreat in February. I went through so much change at the start of the year. I was nursing a broken heart, had just split up from a co-founder and was embarking on setting up The Practical Balance all on my own. I think I had felt every emotion possible in the space of a few weeks.
The Instant Pause was just what I needed. It was amazing to have a day to just do nothing but be me. It gave me the breathing space I needed to take stock of where I was and how I felt. I was a bit nervous about creating a vision board - I don’t think of myself as a particular creative person - but I found myself having a lot of fun making something. I was surprised by the clarity the vision board gave me, how it helped bring order and life to my thoughts.
How often do we take a whole day to connect with ourselves like this? There’s always something else to do, somewhere else to be.
Spending a day at The Instant Pause was like giving myself a gift. I went home feeling inspired, confident and clear about what was next for me.
We use methods you can take away with you so that you’ll massively reduce the overwhelm you feel on a day-to-day basis.
On this one-day retreat, you’ll:
> find out how to reconnect with yourself
> take stock of where you and how you feel
> tune into your vision for your life in a creative way
The Instant Pause helps you look back to move forwards. Creating a steady platform which you can springboard your life. It’s a day designed to bring you back into balance when you most need it.
The Instant Pause is based on time-honoured traditions that work. Here’s what some recent guests at the Instant Pause had to say.
“I really enjoyed the downtime to reflect and make decisions for the year ahead and floated out of the room.” - Emilie
“The Instant Pause is a great way to stop, reflect, and take stock of who you are, what you are doing and what you want to be doing, giving you tools and inspiration to fly.” - Sam
“The Instant Pause is a creative, inspiring and nurturing space; a potent golden capsule of time where I had the opportunity to reflect on my journey and my intentions for moving forward.” - Hannah
“We all intend to ‘pause’ but it more than often slips off the ever growing to do list. This day ensure you do it, but in a relaxed, gentle and beautifully guided environment.” - Mary
“The Instant Pause really had an impact on me and honestly i feel like i have just got back from a 2 week vacation! Fantastic and unexpected.”’ - George
"I loved Vix’s energy. She has a very peaceful quality about her and that really set a nice atmosphere for the event" - Charlotte
If you don’t feel like the day has supported you, we’ll give you a no-questions-asked refund.
I feel like I stumbled on an amazing secret when I found the Instant Pause and I’m so excited to bring this practice to you. To top it all off, I have joined forces with another kick-ass female entrepreneur and chef-extraordinaire, Zoe King. Zoe founded PO-TEN-CY Kitchen and will be keeping us nourished and hydrated throughout the day. Her food ethos is the perfect match for The Practical Balance and the Instant Pause so expect healthy, delicious plant-based treats to keep us energised.
There are only 10 places available and we expect them to sell out quickly so if you need to get back in touch with what’s important to you, this is a small investment you won’t regret.
Come and experience this amazing gift for yourself.
