Women are always busy and are natural multi taskers. In today’s society, it is commonplace for women to take on multiple personal and professional roles – entrepreneur, corporate warrior, frequent traveller, mom, student, wife, caretaker, the list goes on. With so much going on, life can feel a tad overwhelming at times.
We have also encountered many ‘SuperWoman’ who dedicate their time to everything else, but themselves. This results in burnout or other stress induced illnesses such as depression. This is happening to people around us.
Trying to find that ‘balance’ in life or seeking for support, but don’t know where to start? Sounds familiar to you?
The sad, unfortunate (but real) thing is despite knowing that our health should be of utmost priority, we often place our career goals and others before ourselves. It is easy to miss that workout and dismiss it off with a simple “no time”, especially if the people around us do not prioritise their health too.
We started The Busy Woman Project because we live busy lives like you do. We want to actively pursue our goals, indulge in our passions and care for others. How can we do so if we’re not strong mentally and physically?
The Busy Woman Project was created for these very reasons – we are Asia’s community for busy women to live, feel and be better. Our mission is to connect, empower and inspire women to be happier and healthier. We do this by making healthy living (mentally, physically, emotionally) easy, efficient and sustainable for busy women, with a focus on health, boutique fitness and wellness experiences.
As we started as an online community, technology plays a huge part in connecting our community. We offer ladies an online platform to interact – closed Facebook group, social media channels, newsletters, emails (and yes, we do try our darnedest to respond to them all. Try us!) …our journal also includes features on inspirational busy women, tips to kickstart and sustain a healthy lifestyle – the little things to inspire you to live better!
Aside from the online platform, the community, affectionately known as #teambusywoman, connects on the ground through sweatworking experiences across multiple cities in Asia including Bangkok, Singapore, Hong Kong and Shanghai. By curating the experience to include a combination of sweat and healthy refuelling, this breaks down walls and encourages interaction – forging new friendships with like minded women is possible and easy!
And since empowering fellow women is one of our key messages, we also place emphasis on supporting for women* brands in Asia, encouraging our community to do their part for women and consume with purpose.
By bringing together a community of like minded women, we want to create a safe space to make connections and be supported, and where people can easily share their thoughts on their health, social and business lives, thereby creating more time to take action. More importantly, to have the ability and health to be busy (in a positive way)!
Moving forward, we aim to continue providing more tools and curating experiences to simplify things and improve the lifestyles of busy people to become healthier and happier as a whole.
We are currently working on a mobile and web based platform to solve the problem of not being able to stay healthy while being busy and travelling – Broc & Bells (short for Broccoli & Dumbbells).
Driven by community, Broc & Bells will be your go to for curated boutique fitness and healthy eats. The discover portion of Broc & Bells is designed to help find curated boutique fitness gyms, healthy eats cafes and wellness experiences “near me” easily. We also encourage conscious consumption through highlighting For Women businesses and brands. Through our SweatBuddy matchmaking services, we will also pair individuals based on location, fitness levels, etc. Create meaningful connections with peers and meet potential work contacts through sweatworking sessions!
Essentially, we want to make healthy living easier for you. After all, it’s easier to navigate your busy life and work towards your dreams when you’re healthy!
