Go To Your Happy Place

Anyone who has ever been coached by me knows what I mean when I say “go to your happy place” because it’s something I find myself saying over and over again. That’s because I believe if you are in your happy space, everything else becomes better.  So what exactly do I mean by this?  I mean, we should do whatever it takes to make ourselves happy.  When we are happy, everything else goes much more smoothly.  It’s like when we first fall in love.  Everything just seems to be so much better.  No matter what happens, we are wearing our rose-coloured glasses and nothing seems to get us down.  Well, it’s not the being in love part that is doing this for us, but rather, it’s the happy state which we are in and the feelings that come with that state that allows us to remain in a good mood, [...]

Just Do It

Every client I had this week had one thing in common:  They all felt the need to incorporate more exercise into their lives but hadn’t figured out quite how to do it. As the Nike motto goes…..”Just Do It!” That’s what we must do about exercise.  It’s not something we have to plan.  In fact, it’s probably best NOT to plan.  It’s the planning part that often gets us stuck. We plan on joining a gym.  We spend the time researching into which gym. Then once we find the right gym and we join it, we then plan when we can go to it. Did you know the reason gyms survive is because they are counting on their customers not going to them?  If each of their customers actually used their memberships, they wouldn’t possibly have enough equipment to support everyone.  Rather, they count on people to set out these great intentions [...]
