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 87: Zap Those Pesky Imperfections

You have been busy perfecting the present moment, now it is time to perfect your body. A perfect body is not only healthy and fit, but it can reflect who you are.  There is a link between our mind and our bodies. So if there is something about your body that bothers you, take care of it – zap it! These little imperfections can prevent you from being your best and drain you. If you feel great in your own skin, it will show.

I am not talking about supermodel perfection here. This is not a one-size-fits-all approach. I ask you not to compare. What I am suggesting is that you pay attention to the parts of your body that you worry about. These worries might be preventing you from engaging with others and being your full self. Go ahead, if your tooth was knocked as child and turned brown, take care of it; a mole that bothers you – remove it. Are you 50 pounds overweight and not bothered by it, then its not a problem. It is only a problem if it is getting in the way of you being your best.

Self-Coach Sunday 82: Stop Trying to Change People

Trying to change people is a waste of time. The only thing you can do is be a model for them. If they don’t pick up your modeling, move on. Life is too short.

People in our lives are often mirrors of ourselves. If you don’t like something in someone else, it is probably a mirror for the same trait you don’t like about yourself. Instead of changing the other person, look within and see where YOU can improve yourself. Learn what you can from other people, but forget trying to change them. Even better – see if you CAN”T find faults in others.

Self-Coach Sunday 81: Accept Graciously

Most of us have no problem giving gifts; but some may find it difficult to accept them. Accept gifts graciously. Not only is it impolite, but also unattractive to reject a gift or compliment. Remove the clique sayings:”It was really nothing,” or “oh, this old thing,” or “I just bought it on sale.” Simply say, “Thank you!” – maybe include a smile:)

By accepting graciously, you increase the chances of pleasure-giving. Grant the giver the full satisfaction of this compliment or gift. You can practice this yourself by giving three genuine compliments each day this week to different people and notice how they respond.  Then, notice how you feel about the response. In addition to accepting graciously, don’t forget to be gracious. Say thank you often.

One last thing: thank you for reading my post and supporting my mission as a coach to help move you forward!
