14 Tips for Defeating Burn Out

 Greetings Rastafari Family!

I made a post about Saying No to Burn Out and I wanted to improve upon it with these fourteen tips which I have discussed in the following video. 

These tips are:

1. get more rest/sleep

2.exercise, dance and sing

3. eat well

4. carve out personal me time

5. have a passion/hobby

6. pamper yourself

7. change of scenery

8. seek counselling

9. have a girls' night out

10. ask for help

11. set boundaries

12. readjust your mindset

13. pray and worship

14. keep going

I also want to encourage Dawtas to download and join Clubhouse, as I intend to host live chats with the sistren on that space, hopefully every Sunday around 6 pm Eastern time (10 pm UK, 5pm Central). It would be wonderful for us to build a space there where we can share our works, promote our businesses and discuss important matters affecting us in this time, and also learn from each other in sharing skills and knowledge on business, health and homeschooling.  My handle  is Ila Addis and once you follow me, I will follow you back. Click the bell to be notified whenever I start a room. Please also become a member of the Rasta WifeLine Club!

Give thanks and I pray all sistren have a restful sabbath.

Remember to stay strong and never give up no matter what challenges may arise. We all face hardships and we all feel overwhelmed - even on a daily basis, but it is important that we care for ourselves by seeking balance and taking rest whenever possible. It is important that we also take the time to reflect and plan our busy schedules so that we can move efficiently and with as little stress as possible. Remember that you are always in control of your life and where it's headed!

You've got this Lioness!

Love, Love, Love

The Great-Grandchildren of His Majesty Speak


Just by chance I came across this video of the Imperial Great Grandchildren of Ethiopia, who fled the country to save their own lives after the DERG captured their parents, who subsequently died.

Princessed Rahel and Meheret and Prince Samson speak about their experiences and hope for the future. Humbled, beautiful, resilient and well- spoken. I can't help but wonder what became of them and their siblings. We can all only hope that our children will carry on our names with such strength and grace.

Volume is a bit low, but let I know what you thought of it!
