Looking at You Girl
We live in a busy world and dealing with the constant demands of juggling households, family, work and relationships requires a lot of management. Striving to be better, more competitive, smarter, better looking while chasing bigger bank accounts and taking more and more on can be overwhelming. Working with a Life Coach presses the pause button to prioritise time and space for what you value most. It’s the vehicle to look after you when you are looking after everybody else. It’s your go-to toolkit for focusing on your needs, your values, your well-being, your habits and your best self. Remember you matter too.
Bigger Picture Stuff
The focus is on those things that are most important in your life. It’s taking time out to discover what matters most to you and what your values are. Identifying what your core values are is the best way of letting go of a habit than no longer supports you as well as introducing a habit that enriches your life. Life is a little like a business, further to working in a business we also need to work on the business to help it to flourish and grow. It’s important to step outside of your life to create distance which in turn gives clarity. Reflecting on how you spend your time can be an eye-opening exercise especially if you’re travelling through your day on autopilot.
Your Best Self
Our busy lives of lengthy to-do lists of maintaining a family household often results in finding ourselves at the bottom of that to-do list. Fortunately however, we can choose to carve out time to look after ourselves and spend time getting back to our sense of purpose by reviewing, recharging and reconnecting with what we value most. As a result, your best self comes back to life and you naturally live simpler, think clearer, you are kinder to yourself, you start your day in a better mood and you feel calmer in the busyness of family life. You’ll also receive more compliments as people notice the best version of you.
Power of Habits
For most of our day many of us are on autopilot. It’s been a certain way for so long that we can’t even remember when it was different. It’s human nature to do the same thing over and over because there’s no fear of the unknown. It then becomes a habit hardwired into the brain. We don’t even know we are doing them. We feel safe but we also crave growth. From the moment we decide to think of being different, life responds and brings us experiences to get us feeling back on track. Change brings about fresh thoughts, ideas and feelings. It’s healthy to shift from autopilot to manual and be mindful of everything we do in our day. This mindfulness brings joy to our day.
It Takes Two
Having someone like a Life Coach who doesn’t know your past, who is challenging and also supportive, and who will relate to you as your best self is uplifting and refreshing. We underestimate just how beneficial it is to have someone take a fresh look at your life, especially when you’re tangled up in the daily grind. It’s also important to have someone who has a knack for identifying and highlighting your strengths while promoting a growth mindset. A Life Coach will remind you of the things you consider important in life. Sometimes the people who are closest to you have their own agendas which can get in the way of cheering you on to achieve the best version of yourself.
Fresh Inspiring Goals
The ultimate role of a Life Coach is to bring out the best in you and focus only on the goals you love. It’s an elegantly simple process where the coach reminds you of what brings you the most joy in life. Creating and working on goals that inspire you will not only tip the scales in favour of fulfillment in that one hour session but they will also enhance the positive choices you make in the other 167 hours of your week. You will rethink your eating choices, your sleep habits, how you relate to those closest to you, how kind you are to yourself and how present you are with your children. Your best self as well as your family will thank you for it.
