‘I’ve lived the corporate life, and I know what it’s like to push the limits in my career. I also have experience with a mental health issue. I found tools and techniques that will help people who suffer from mental illness. And it enables those who don’t suffer these issues to perform at their best. Who wouldn’t want their employees to learn healthier coping strategies in the business world and in their daily lives?’
The pandemic has taught us many things, but many now view their wellbeing in a different light. ‘Self-care is not selfish; it’s self-preservation,’ says Chelsea.

‘As a builder, you have a lot to take care of; the list is almost endless. Running the company and all the financial and legal requirements and managing all subcontractors, suppliers, and multiple project schedules is a big list. You’re responsible for your clients, your team and, of course, your family. But, you can’t forget to take care of yourself.
‘I often miss lunch because I’m on the go all the time, and people need me. That’s why I’m trying to prioritise self-care and mindfulness. This means looking after myself in simple ways every day, but it also means taking a moment to breathe, reassess and regroup. That isn’t selfish; it’s imperative. If you can go outdoors, look around you, schedule time off, or just stop a little to breathe and switch off every day, even for 15 minutes, it really helps, and the long-term benefits are worth it.’
