THE FREAK OUT FACTOR...

LIVING WITH YOUR DECISIONS - ARRGHHH!

Ep01_Banner_BHC

That good ol’ feeling of overwhelm is the hot topic on the podcast today. Whether it’s your first building or renovation project, or you’ve embarked on it many times before, the feeling of overwhelm and quiet freak out can creep in pretty quick. You can be so organised, communicating well with your tradespeople, your designers, you’re running the gamut like a boss, but then one small question sends you into what we like to call “decision fatigue,” and it all feels like it’s too much.

The truth is, it probably is too much, and at some point something has got to give. The good news is, this feeling of overwhelm doesn’t last forever.

Today we’re going to talk you through steps that you can take to minimise your freak out and generally feel great when working through your project.

If you have a topic or question you’d like us to cover, contact us here.

SOME TOPICS THAT WE COVER:

  • Sometimes freaking out is okay as it drives you to assess and make decisions

  • Every build has highly emotional points, and that's so normal

  • Being kind to future self and giving yourself the gift of time

  • Don't wait until you have the money to start designing your project as the process can take many years

  • Start thinking about it early to give yourself that gift of time when making decisions

  • Budgets change, family circumstances change, there are so many variables and all of these things can change how you build
