Achieve Your Career Goals Without Sacrificing Your Health

Do you constantly feel like you have to choose between working hard and taking care of yourself?

Perhaps you've noticed the vicious cycle: you prioritize work, spend less time cooking/exercising/sleeping, then inevitably get sick. You slow everything down but once you're feeling better, you're back in go-go-go mode and that "all-or-nothing" approach. 

While it may not feel like it's possible, it's true:

You don't have to choose between your work and your well-being.

This free training focuses on stress and sleep, and the impact both have on our health and job performance. You'll discover how to take make lasting changes in a culture that makes you feel like there's no other way to live. With these tools, you can reach your career goals while also being healthy enough to do what you love outside of the office.

Stress Less this Spring

Join us for an evening of essential oil infused restorative yoga + a brief discussion of simple tools to create more calm.

For many people, spring feels more like the “New Year” than January. The lighter and longer days, anticipation of summer, and chance to finally break out of hibernation can bring about a sense of renewed energy.  

Capitalize on this shift to revisit your intentions and create new habits to take even better care of yourself. Schedules will always be crazy; to-do lists are forever never-ending. Learn how to use simple, practical tools to combat chaos and create more calm in your life.

Class is at a private residence in South Natick, MA. If you're interested in attending please email Aileen at aileen@aspirewithaileen.com

We all do it...We start off the New Year with a laundry list of goals: drink more water, get more sleep, find a better work/life balance etc. But by March, the winter blues have taken over and a lot of those wellness goals we set for ourselves take a back seat to Netflix and left over Valentines Day candy.

Fact: The EU has banned more than 1,300 chemicals in the formulas of personal care products in the past two decades. The US has only partially banned 30.

Overwhelmed to Empowered: Simplify Your Job Search

You sit down in front of your computer thinking, “Okay, it's job search time!” and then 3 hours and 30 open browser tabs later you're left questioning what you’ve accomplished. 

There are many common missteps that happen when trying to land a job. Submitting applications and never hearing back or refreshing your inbox every few minutes to find out whether or not you have been selected can certainly make you feel helpless.

Learn how to use a simple, two-pronged, proactive approach to feel energized and empowered instead. The more you operate from this position of strength when searching, the more motivated you'll be to take time to do the work AND you'll have more energy to do other things you love (#worklifebalancegoals).

While digging into this content, you can enjoy wine and snacks in the pop-up location of Of/Mercer, all for free. The career convo will be one hour (6-7pm) and then participants will have time to shop and mingle (7-8pm).

Register here!


About Of/Mercer: Founded by two women tired of figuring out workwear (and real talk: being late as a result), this is “workwear” women want to wear. Our clothing is totally office-appropriate, and more importantly, it’s designed to make you feel incredible. (Because a killer outfit makes all the difference.) While we personally haven’t nailed the work-life balance thing, our clothing definitely has. In office parlance: It’s a game-changer.

How to Find a Fulfilling Career to Improve Your Overall Health (and vice versa)

According to the Pew Research Center, 51% of Americans say they aren’t very satisfied with their careers. We spend so much of our time at work, and that built up dissatisfaction can impact all other areas of our lives if we don’t address it. And yet, when we talk about wellness, we rarely talk about its relationship to our work lives: happiness in our careers can make us healthier and being healthier can enable us to thrive at our jobs. 

Whether you’re planning to change jobs and unsure of how to go about the process, or you’re just looking for ways to manage work-related stressors to improve your health, this discussion has you covered. Conversely, if you love your job but your health is interfering with your ability to perform, we’ll also discuss simple food and fitness habits to improve your energy.  

You’ll leave with practical, concrete tools to move you towards feeling engaged and empowered in your work.

Wine and snacks will be served at this free event, along with a chance to shop after the discussion. Register here!

Mindful Mama: Caring for Your Personal and Professional Self  

Thanks to your feedback about tricky summer schedules, we rescheduled this workshop to the fall!

Pregnancy is an exciting time, but can also include some uncertainty and discomfort. How can you mindfully take care of yourself, both personally and professionally, while preparing for so much change? This workshop will open with a 50 minute prenatal yoga sequence (devoted time for self care!), followed by a guided discussion covering topics such as:

How do you create a maternity plan that will enable you to leave confidently and with knowledge that you can actually let go of checking email and managing projects?

Once baby arrives, how are you going to make sure you're taking care of yourself?

If you find that your values/attitude towards work have shifted, what do you do?

Participants will be invited to enter our drawing for a free 60- minute private prenatal session or career coaching session! Cost is $25/pp - register here!

Meet the Workshop Leaders:

Jenny and Aileen met during their 200 hour yoga teacher training with Amy Leydon at Exhale. They found a common bond through yoga, but have since helped each other navigate both personal and professional journeys. Jenny recently welcomed her first baby in October 2016 and realized she had a calling to share her yoga practice with expecting new moms. She completed her prenatal yoga certification with Bec Conant of Om Births and is thrilled to be a resource for her fellow mamas.

Aileen has helped thousands of people achieve their personal and professional goals through her 10 years of experience in the career coaching field, and most recently through her own holistic wellness platform. Find out more on www.aspirewithaileen.com.
