How often do we walk around with the proverbial tunnel vision, because we are so busy we are not even trying to see what's beyond it? I know for myself, raising my two daughters as a single mother, there were times in my life, when I felt like I was on auto-pilot "get ready for work. . . get the kids up and out the door . . .work, work, work . . . stopping to pick up fast food as you race home to pick up the kids for their dance class . . . come home . . . collapse . . . repeat!!! I had the belief that to have a better life meant work, work, work. Well you know what they say hind-sight is 20/20, that belief short changed me in other areas of my life. A balanced life isn't necessarily having perfect balance in all areas, but recognizing what is most important in your life and committing the time and energy to nurture its existence.
If I Only Knew Then, What I Know Now!
If we managed our everyday life, as if we were an athlete we could exponentially improve our health, well-being and quality of our engagement in all areas of our life. Our energy levels affect us in many ways physically (exercise, eating, sleeping), mentally (focus), emotionally (happiness) and spiritually (purpose). The more we optimize the management of our energy levels in these areas both expending and renewing, the higher quality of engagement we are able to achieve at work, home and in the world.
Partnering with a personal coach helps you to regain your energy & perspective. It also brings many other wonderful benefits: increased satisfaction and enjoyment in all areas of your life, purpose & passion, health & well-being, enhanced decision-making skills, greater interpersonal effectiveness, increased confidence. Many people also report improvements in productivity, and motivation toward the attainment of relevant goals.
