MY #BOROMANCAN STORY:

45  year old, Northern Irish living in Boro 20 years,  Works as a Head chef in a leading 4 & 5 star hotel & restaurant. Pressures & strains of middle management / senior role within catering took it toll on mind set. Found himself over thinking /worrying made me lose my direction, enjoyment & love of cooking / catering which effect me personally with low mood, relationship with close family.

I Lost the desire for work or was lost what makes me happy & getting a good work life balance. 

 I Learnt to find ways to cope with your stress and learn from this experience. I think I’m a stronger man today because I learned how to deal with not sweating the small stuff in my work & Home life, I had a lot on my plate and I had to learn how to manage my time and not take everything so personally. My advice is to sometimes take a moment, breathe, and think again. Think about the issue and what’s causing you more stress. Then think to yourself about how this will really affect your life. Some of the worst decisions come from acting too quickly. Think through the consequences or the possible outcomes of this problem. I really enjoyed learning about mindfulness, took lots of ideas in ways to improve my mindset.
