How to Improve Your Whole Life

All my clients have one thing in common.  A drive to be successful in whatever they set out to achieve.

I work with them to improve their mindset as well as their body and fitness.

But I want to offer my clients so much more, the ability to become better in EVERY aspect of their life.

This includes relationships, business performance or dealing with their thoughts & emotions.

It’s for this reason that I’m delighted to be in talks with Chris about how we can help my clients on an ongoing basis.

Before you dismiss Life Coaching as some hippy dippy new age concept, read what Chris has to say.

It might just be the missing link you’ve been looking for…….

 

My work with coaching clients, regardless of age, gender, race, background or financial status, generally stems from the client’s desire to achieve their potential without the necessary toolkit and strategies to do so.

One client described this as a feeling of ‘stuckness’.Life-Coaching

By identifying exactly what the client would like to improve on and how the improvements would lead to the client to living a more balanced life, I often uncover unhealthy physical and emotional habits that derail the client’s best intentions.

Supporting my client to replace bad habits with new resourceful ones immediately places the client in a position of empowerment, confidence and motivation – and the stage is set for the client to define and achieve their personal and professional goals.

As a life coach specialising in helping clients to create their own personal toolkits (I give my clients the tools they need to become their own life coach), I’ve spent a lot of time with people who suffer the various ill effects of an unhealthy lifestyle – tiredness, lethargy, back pain, IBS and other digestive problems are just some of the ailments people suffer from.

Smoking, excessive alcohol use and carrying too much weight are common culprits. The longer-term effects can be much more alarming – we all know that heart disease, diabetes and cancer have been linked to smoking, poor diet and a lack of regular physical exercise.

Then there’s the emotional fallout – stress, anxiety, insomnia, depression, lack of self-confidence.

The good news is that by changing your behaviour – quitting smoking, moderating your alcohol use and increasing your physical activity – even moderately – you will improve not just your energy levels and overall fitness but, by releasing so-called ‘happy chemicals’ – endorphins that create feelings of happiness and euphoria – you will get an immediate mood boost. Research also shows that regular exercise and a healthy diet can boost chemicals that aid learning, sharpen memory and improve productivity.

Modern life – particularly in the workplace – is fast-paced and increasingly demanding; employers place significant value on emotional intelligence and the ability to innovate. Research shows that workers who exercise regularly (something as simple as a brisk lunchtime walk will do) are more productive and have greater energy levels than their less active colleagues.

Stress is at epidemic levels. Chemicals such as cortisol, adrenaline and noradrenaline, released into the body and useful in certain situations (providing the extra energy needed to flee from danger, for example) can be toxic when the release trigger is an emotional one.

Understanding what your stress triggers are and having appropriate strategies for dealing effectively with symptoms such as muscle tension, headaches, and IBS is essential if more serious problems – high blood pressure, stroke, heart attack – are to be avoided; meditation, yoga, mindful nutrition, regular exercise and effective self-coaching techniques all have proven benefits in dealing with stress.

In recent years the link between regular exercise and personal happiness has been the subject of considerable research. According to Liggy Webb, bestselling author of How to be Happy, ‘happy people get sick less often, they have more energy, are more creative, sustain more positive relationships and are more fun to be around’. It really is a no-brainer.

I help my clients to lead happier, healthier and more fulfilled lives by coaching them to create resourceful habits.

If you feel you’re ready and willing to be coached to make powerful changes and achieve life-improving goals I’d like to meet with you (face-to-face or via Skype) for a chat about your situation and to determine if coaching is right for you (it’s not for everyone and I don’t want to waste your money and both our time!).  This initial meeting is free of charge and without obligation.
