What do you imagine when you think of living a fully happy, fulfilling, and satisfying life? Creating a good life is about realizing your vision and putting practices and thinking in place that enables you to live how you long to live instead of making sacrifices. A good life consists of your ability to make the choices and say yes to the the opportunities that allow you to feel whole, valuable, and most importantly connected to your true self. When you are stressed, overwhelmed, and off balance, it’s impossible to live the life you hope to have. Do you really want the type of life you have now to be the one you reflect back upon when your 80?
Resilience in the face of Stress and Pain
Do you ever feel out of breath or too exhausted to think clearly? In a high demand environment, it is easy to overcommit and to go from one commitment to another without stopping. Without engaging in practices for renewal there is a constant depletion of your capacity to be resilient. Being able to stop, nourish your soul, body, and mind, and give yourself an emotional break is key to renewing and building resilience. The greater your store of resilience, the less emotionally triggered and physically exhausted you will become in what could be stressful times.
Saying Yes, Saying No
Do you find yourself saying yes when you really want to say no? Being clear about whether you want to accept an opportunity or request or whether you don't is the first step to being able to set the personal boundaries that will enable you to do so. And, what boundaries are those? They are the ones that allow you to breathe easier, engage in self care practices without interruption, and to feel good about and fulfill your commitments without sacrificing your self. To what do you want to start saying no?
Practices and Habits for Self Care
How do you care for yourself? Self care is the most important aspect of life balance and yet it’s the one we usually sacrifice first when we feel stressed, are overcommitted, or are just too tired. Self care is composed of the practices we NEED to renew, to be healthy, and to think well enough to make good decisions. Without it, we deconstruct. What types of self care are you missing and do you long for?
Balance - What is it Exactly?
What would be the perfect balance between work, life responsibilities, and taking care of yourself? You get to choose. It’s not a formula, it’s our creation. What balance would allow you to feel your most alive and healthy? Taking the time to discover this will change your life.
Coaching for Life Balance
Why a coach? Each person has their own set of struggles, blind spots, and judgments that get in the way of having a good life and finding their optimum life balance. A coach is dedicated to you and helping you discover thinking and practices that support you in living the life you want to live and not the one you are living now. A coach is truly a gift you give yourself so why not give yourself one?
