9 Survival Strategies – Women’s Event Speaker



Do you never seem to have enough ours in the day? Do you live life in survival mode trying to be everything to everybody? Here are some tips Women Event Speaker, Haydee Antezana, will share at your next event:

If you answer yes to any of the symptoms below you could be suffering from the Super Woman Syndrome and you need to start making some changes to your life. Super Woman Syndrome is experienced by many women in the demanding, fast paced world we live in.

• Is it difficult for you to say no?
• Do you tend to over-analyse and constantly worry?
• Do you have high standards and expectations regarding your ability succeed and perform?
• Do you please others to gain approval?
• Do you often feel that your schedule is over-extended?
• Do you find it hard to relax?
• Are you always trying to be everything to everybody?
• Is it difficult for you to ask for help?



Here are 9 survival strategies you can follow right now to help you overcome Superwoman Syndrome and resume control of your life.

1. Conquer the mind-attacks. Worry, self-doubt, confusion, depression, anger and anxiousness are all thoughts that attack your mind. Calm your spirit, and declutter your soul and mind. A helpful resource is Joyce Meyer’s book “Battlefield of the Mind”. She has helped millions of women to improve their lives by simply by changing their minds.

2. Refrain from Multi-Tasking. We have been taught we are more productive if we do several things at once. Research shows, however, that our productivity decreases by 40% when we multi-task. This is because we don’t actually multitask, we switch-task, rapidly shifting between one thing and another.
Deactivate your “show new mail alerts” on your email settings. I did it and it stopped me from shifting between tasks and reading emails – which distracted me to focus on other tasks – and the result was that all of my tasks were half done.

3. Draft a “bucket list”. This is a list of all the things you want to do before you die. The inspiration for this is the film  “The Bucket List” – watch it! Everyone needs something to look forward to – it nourishes your soul and assists you to get through challenging times. I was able to tick off 2 of my bucket list items this year – I went swimming with dolphins & I saw Madonna live in concert!

4. Get a grip on reality: Set realistic expectations for yourself. Stop trying to fit in with someone’s expectation of you. You know the class mother with the amazing body and the fabulous job? NOTHING IS WHAT IT SEEMS. If you join a running club because your friends wanted you to yet you hate running…don’t do it. Do what you love!



5. Learn to say No: Here are some tips you can use when you don’t want to overcommit.
Scenario- A colleague asks you to assist with a last minute project.
Answer “Sorry but I have already committed to help other colleagues and clients with deadlines.”
Scenario- A friend asks if it’s okay to bring a friend to your dinner party.
Answer “This evening is really just for our small group of close friends. Sorry, but I really have to stick to the guest list.”

6. Laugh out Loud: They say…‘laughter is the best medicine’ and according to research findings its true! Laughter reduces stress hormone levels, boosts immunity and lowers blood pressure. Dr Clifford C. Kuhn, the ‘Laugh Doctor’, believes you can improve productivity and health by implementing 52 “smile strategies” to bring more fun into your everyday life.

7. Declutter your life: Mental, emotional and physical clutter can drain our time and energy. Think of the time you spend looking for lost keys, cellphone or shoes? Here’s a tip: Throw away Ten Things. Grab a bag, fill it with ten things in your home that you no longer use, need or want. Donate them if you feel someone else can use them.

8. Work with a Life Coach: a life coach can improve the quality of your life, through offering advice on your professional and personal life, your career, health, relationships, etc. It will help you obtain the confidence to work through things that are holding you back from enjoying a happy life.

9. Stop feeling guilty: Overcoming guilt can improve the quality of your life immensely.
• If you ate ice cream for dinner;  left work early to do some personal errands, stop feeling GUILTY. See things in patterns instead of an isolated incident.
• Tell someone you trust about your feelings of guilt. An objective opinion, will help you to relieve yourself of anxiety.
• Find a mentor; join a network of women who can support you.

And remember– you are not Superwoman – you are SUPER-FABULOUS, SUPER-GORGEOUS, SUPER-PHENOMENAL!
