Reduce stress to find more fulfilment in life! It is a year since I shared my last insight.

Reduce stress to find more fulfilment in life!

At the time I was in a difficult and uncomfortable situation as I could not use my right arm or hand without causing pain. My neck and shoulder complained during the day and I was unable to sleep without waking on several occasions. In retrospect it is obvious that I had become quite depressed. Like so many of us with demanding careers, I had been leading a very busy, lop-sided lifestyle without really taking stock of the toll this was taking on both body and mind… and the quality of my personal life.

She knows about the demands and stress that can be experienced by achieving women today – both personally and professionally! In today’s high pressured social environment, it can seem impossible for the professional woman to take the time to meet likeminded men – men who they know to be genuinely wanting to share life with a partner. While the business environment often brings potentially compatible men and women together, the circumstances can prevent us from revealing our availability and interest in a personal relationship. At Yvonne Allen we are an introduction agency and search consultancy that truly understands the needs and challenges experienced by many single women who have demanding careers. Our results speak for themselves – read some of our many genuine testimonials. In short, the answer is no. Sound like you? Communication is key to a great relationship! Recently I sent the following letter to the editor of the Australian in response to an article by Bettina Arndt re international research that has revealed a dramatic change over recent decades in women’s interest in sex.

Communication is key to a great relationship!

Bettina Arndt’s report re the increasing lack of desire for sex in many women does not surprise me. Blog Archives - Yvonne Allen & Associates.

Rather than a morbid exercise, reflecting on how we would like to be remembered can be a valuable key to creating more fulfillment in our lives.

In seminars I have led over the years, many participants have said that taking time to think about this simple question has led to their making decisions that were positive and life changing. All too often we can get caught up in the ‘busyness’ of our lives. This is frequently driven by the desire to meet expectations that are held of us by family, colleagues, friends and the world at large rather than what really matters to us. For many today it is a career focus that is all consuming, leaving little time ‘to smell the roses’ let alone nourish our need for love. I recall ‘Jasmine’, an attractive woman in her early 50’s, who came to my match making consultancy to meet a potential partner. Yvonne Allen & Associates. Do your first dates usually end in disappointment? Meeting more than once can have many benefits!

Do your first dates usually end in disappointment?

This is not what I had imagined! After talking with thousands of men and women about their frustrations with dating, it seems that many a potentially great relationship ended before it had a chance to begin. All too often it seems that a first date is viewed as determining whether ‘it is on, or not’, rather than an opportunity to uncover possibilities – including the potential to find romance and love. As a matchmaker running Australia’s longest standing professional dating service and consultancy, I always encourage clients to go on at least two dates. Instead of having expectations – or looking for ‘what is not there’ when meeting someone for the first time – why not focus on what you appreciate in the person who has agreed to meet you.
