Life is fluid. It’s always happening and sometimes it feels like it’s happening on steroids. This might be one of those times. Between the contentious political environment, the fear and uncertainty of far too many terror attacks and the devastation of the natural disasters that all seem to happen one after another, life can feel unsettling and chaotic. Whether they are the happenings in the world around us or the something much closer to home it’s likely adversely impacting our relationships. When your emotions run high, you’re stressed or generally feeling out of sorts your first course of action is to practice self-compassion and self-care.
- What allows me to feel safe?
- Where can I slow down?
- Where can I be kinder and gentler to myself?
- What values do I want to align myself with?
Settling down when all is crazy about you starts here, with you. Recognize and respect what’s so and what is without judgement. Re-grounding yourself when there is so much noise and distraction around is one of the things that coaching is best at… helping you choose your steps. You can’t offer others – whether it be your spouse, family, friends or those further out in your circle of life what you don’t give first to yourself. So start here. Start now. As Mahatma Ghandi said “Be the Change you hope to see in the world”. Be nimble to the fluidity of life anchored in choices that keep you whole and healthy of mind, body and spirit. Then choose your steps with love, hope and kindness and pass it on!
