Instant Pause

  • LABS Camden - The Atrium Chalk Farm Road London, NW1 8AH (map)

A one-day urban retreat to reflect and recharge

Do you feel overwhelmed, stressed out, and like life is getting on top of you?

Have you lost sight of who you are and what’s important?

You need some time out - time to reconnect and rediscover what is most important to you and to recharge.

The Instant Pause has supported hundreds of women and men at times of change in their lives. Including me.

My name is Vix Anderton and I am the founder of The Practical Balance, a platform that helps entrepreneurs create success in their lives and businesses by balancing their energies and getting in tune with their natural rhythms. I work with entrepreneurs one-to-one and in small groups to make the everyday hustle both happy and healthy.

I was drawn to The Instant Pause during a time of great change in my life. It was just what I needed. It was amazing to have a day to just do nothing but be myself. It gave me the breathing space I needed to take stock of where I was and how I felt. In a world of constant doing, The Instant Pause was a space to ‘just be’. These practices have helped bring more clarity to my past and my future and connect me more to the present, right here and now. They are practices I return to again and again.

We so rarely take a whole day to connect with ourselves like this - there’s always something else to do, somewhere else to be.

This is a chance to stop and explore your personal creative leadership.

The Instant Pause is based on time-honoured traditions that work. We use methods you can take away with you that will help reduce the overwhelm you feel on a day-to-day basis.

On this one-day retreat, you’ll:

> find out how to reconnect with yourself

> take stock of where you are and how you feel

> tune into avision for your life and where you want to go, in a creative way

The Instant Pause helps you look back to move forward. Establishing a clear platform from which you can springboard the next stage of your journey. It’s a day designed to bring you back into balance when you most need it.

Here’s what some recent guests at the Instant Pause had to say.

"Vix has an incredible ability to create a safe and honest space to explore and review the past 12 months and think about the future. It was really powerful to take a whole day out just to think about my wishes, desires and achievements and, with Vix's encouragement, to channel that into a positive forward energy." - Steph

“The Instant Pause is a great way to stop, reflect, and take stock of who you are, what you are doing and what you want to be doing, giving you tools and inspiration to fly.” - Sam

“We all intend to ‘pause’ but it more than often slips off the ever growing to do list. This day ensure you do it, but in a relaxed, gentle and beautifully guided environment.” - Mary

There are limited places available and we expect them to sell out quickly so if you need to get back in touch with what’s important to you, this is a small investment you won’t regret.

I feel like I stumbled on an amazing secret when I found the Instant Pause and I’m so excited to bring this practice to you in the light and airy space of the LABS Camden Atrium. Nestled at the heart of bustling Camden market, the Atrium is a beautiful oasis and the perfect backdrop for the day. Refreshments and a healthy, nutritious lunch are included to make sure you are nourished physically, mentally and emotionally.
