I had a wonderful opportunity some years ago to have some Life Coaching. I hunted out the material this weekend and read through what I had committed too. It made interesting reading for me and I realised how far I have strayed from that ‘Extreme Self-Care’ that is necessary to keep myself alive; in body, mind and spirit.
Spiritual well-being – inner security, sense of peace & centeredness
Work – my life is not my work?
Fun & Leisure – interestingly I had not made any comments on this section.
I wrote down the key things for me and what I was going to commit to doing or I had already working for me:
Relationships – I spend time with people who make me laugh, and I have relationships with people who stimulate me intellectually
Environment – I listen to my favourite music, and my home neat, & well-organised
Body, Mind & Spirit – I exercise regularly, and eat healthier. I set aside regular time for solitude & silence and find a safe & healthy outlet for my emotional wellbeing
Get a piece of paper out and write down what makes you feel good – it is a good exercise.
What the recharges you? Part of your life begins to die if you don’t look after it. Some of us feel guilty if we don’t stop and do something that replenish our soul. We all need to discover what replenishes us and then just do it.
