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.

Self-Coach Sunday 63: Strengthen Your Strengths

This is a time to lay down your notion of doing it all and doing everything perfectly. We live in a time where we do not need to do it all. What if you just strengthened your strengths? Really take a look at what you are good at, and focus on or master that. Just delegate the rest.

People who master a strength tend to attract the good life. Doing a lot of things fairly well is not as valuable as doing one thing extremely well. Mastery is an art. Stop trying to be good at everything. Instead, focus on your strengths. Keep track of the things that you don’t like to do or are not your strengths. Rather than trying to do them, find someone else to do them for you.
