A New Year is Here

Happy New Year!
By now you have put away the holiday decorations and are gearing up for another new year or maybe you are the type that keeps them up until Spring. Either way, this time of year makes me think of hibernating. Winter is a time for the Earth to lie fallow, at least in our hemisphere. One of the reasons I think New Year’s Resolutions don’t work is because it goes against the season of rest. Spring is the time to start new things: seeds aren’t planted until then as they wouldn’t grow. This is the time for reflection and count your blessings, harvest your successes and lick your wounds.  Give me a call to celebrate your successes. We can take a snapshot of your life and set an intention for the Spring. Take time to plan, to organize and to reflect on your strengths and begin the process to plant your seeds of life. If some of you are ready to start planting now, we can do that as well. I am here to motivate, inspire and celebrate you and your unique song, dance, passion or mission. Check out the Health Coach tab here on my website for more information.

Welcome to September as the sun wanes, school starts up again and the heat just doesn’t want to let up. I am very happy that summer wants to get every bit of life out of itself.  We have a brushing of Earl the Hurricane coming in a few days. I think of the metaphor of hurricanes and tornadoes. Nothing is the same after they blow through your proverbial house. What do you need to stir up this day without waiting for an external cause to come in and do it for you? How can you be more proactive today instead of reactionary? How can you never give up on yourself even when doing so is an old ‘default’ pattern? How can you embrace your inner tempest, reigning it in to create the life you want?  How can you stir up the pot in your kitchen to really nourish yourself like you never have before? Start today by never giving up on yourself. Reach out and ask for guidance along this dark road as the clouds pass by and clear your head and your heart. Open up to your brilliance.

I client came in with the news that she needed an MRI to find out if her shoulder muscle had torn. She had been in pain and it limited her range of motion. While on the table, I asked her about her needs for fitness. She is an avid tennis player as well as runner, both of which she enjoyed just for the sake of doing them.  She stated that she had a wish for strength and that weightlifting was the only way to become stronger.  She really didn’t like weightlifting and thought that she had to endure it to get stronger.  According to her doctor, weightlifting was the cause of her shoulder pain, which in turn limited her ability to play tennis and she was too sore to even run.  She couldn’t do the things she loved because of this other belief about a limited path to strength.  With this belief, she was in too much pain to do the things she loved and then the goal of strength couldn’t be met.  She was frustrated   Once she understood that her strategy to get strong was impeding her overall desire for health and wellness, she decided to find another way to reach her goal. We brainstormed other possible strengthening activities that could meet her goals and be enjoyable as well. She came up with the benefits of yoga and is pursuing a class at her gym.  She got the MRI and they found no tear. Physical therapy is helping to strengthen the shoulders and the therapist has given her easy exercises.

Take Away from this story:

Sometimes the strategies we take to reach goals don’t match all of our needs.  Learn to listen to your body.   Pain is its language.  Life is short. Find a fun way to reach your goals of health and wellness.  Align your goals with your activities.

A great book for this is The Intrinsic Exerciser by Jay Kimiecik.  He outlines three motivations for exercise:

1.  It has to feel good

2.  It is enjoyable

3.  It keeps your mind in the present moment.

Use this as your guide when you are looking for ways to reach your goals of health and wellness through movement.

Journaling as a Life Coaching Tool

Last week I talked about the first step of just stopping and listening to your heart. Today we take another First Step towards your Second Chance.  With the belief that every day is a Second Chance to change any aspect of your life, once you have stopped and listened to your heart for its wisdom, what do you do with what you heard? Another First Step would be to write about it. Take a few minutes to jot down what you heard. What possible unmet need is the message directing you to look for and explore?  Sit with the message and use your imagination to get curious about it.  Curiosity is very useful with something that is unfamiliar. You have unlimited First Steps towards your Second Chance!!

“Never, never, never give up” Winston Churchill

Take-aways:

write down what you heard

what unmet needs did it highlight

Stay curious!

Welcome to Second Chance Wellness

Greetings to you all and thanks for stopping by my blog. I want to connect with you and share my thoughts about what I have learned over these many years of searching for peace within. My challenge to you today is to take the first steps towards your Second Chance. Each day offers another opportunity for you to step into creating the life you truly want. It is about making choices that support you primary aims. Articulate your biggest goals and the little goals will somehow get accomplished. Your Second Chance Challenge  today starts with:

Stopping. Just stop what ever you are doing.

Take a breath. I have found we tend to forget to just breathe and pause.  From this place of stillness, check in with your heart and soul and:

Listen. Listen for the wisdom seeking to come through.

I have found that wisdom doesn’t generally scream: it whispers. Take that first step towards your Second Chance today.

be Peace,

David
