Self-Coach Sunday 90: Surround Yourself With Beauty And Luxury

Transform mundane activities into luxuries and make them special occasions. Your morning bowl of cereal can become transformed by a beautiful bowl and fresh blueberries sprinkled on top. Coffee can become a real treat with a spoonful of real cream. And how difficult is it to light a candle at dinner or during your bath? Two seconds can lead to instant ambience. Go on, splurge! Drink your water out of a Crystal wine glass, load your bath with salts and oils, turn on music, buy a set of plush towels, find what is luxurious for you. Is it an ergonomic chair, down comforter, cloth napkins, flowers, nice hangers, a high-quality knife, books, fresh herbs for cooking? Start surrounding yourself with luxury and you will attract even more. What are some ways you can surround yourself with beauty and luxury today?

Self-Coach Sunday 89: Get Off Your Butt

How many New Year’s resolutions have you picked “lose weight” or “get in shape”? Whatever that resolution has been, there are two options: toss out that goal, or delegate it and hire a professional trainer, coach or nutritionist to help get you there. Don’t wait for inspiration to hit you. That moment may come and if it does, it may go too quickly; or it may not come. Decide once and for all that this goal is important to you. Take that first step and get some help, support and a plan. Having the proper support system in place can turn a dream into an accomplishment real fast.

Self-Coach Sunday 88: Massage The Machine

We tend to lead overly-busy, stressful lives. A massage can be a wonderful balancing gift that may help you relax and unwind. There are many types: sports, therapeutic, Reiki, shiatsu, acupressure, reflexology, and more. Experiment with the different types and find the one or two that you respond best to.

Getting a massage is a great way to combat the stress in our busy lives. Not only is this great for muscles and relaxation, but there are so many physiological and psychological benefits as well. You also become more in tune with your body and intuition. If you are serious about being happier, get a regular massage – at least once a month.

Self-Coach Sunday 85: Dress The Part

How many times have you bought something new that wasn’t quite right for you but it was the right price? (a dress, suit, sweater, pants, house, etc.) You then own it but don’t wear, or use it and then you feel guilty. The next time you shop, don’t buy it if it doesn’t pass the joy filter. Otherwise it will end up becoming clutter or a burden. The rule is you must feel absolutely wonderful and powerful.

Looking good is not only about the outer, but also the inner. Make sure you are giving your body the most nutritious foods. What works for you may be different than what works for someone else. Pay attention to how your body reacts to food. If you need help, hire a cook, nutritionist, or coach. Work with this person to figure out your ideal nutrition plan. Don’t like to cook? Hire a food service. Just make sure what you put into your body is nourishing and sustaining.

Self-Coach Sunday 74: Stop The Gossip

As much as you may love hearing about the dirt on someone, do you ever wonder what others might be saying about you when you aren’t around? No one trusts gossip. You may really miss out on profound conversations because of trust or lack of trust. The rule is to avoid talking about someone who isn’t present. That is a simple rule to follow. Every time you don’t follow it – it is gossip.

A graceful way to steer the conversation away from gossip is to say, “I’d rather hear about you; or I don’t feel comfortable talking about someone who isn’t present.”

What is wrong with a little friendly gossip? Simply put, it can be harmful and destructive. The benefit of giving up gossip: people will start to trust you.
