How do you enjoy your summer?

As my intent is to help people live happier and healthier lives, not only do we need to be doing things that are healthy, but we need to choose actions and events that make us happy. Truly authentic happiness, what our soul screams for, not just happy because of…(whatever reason fits)

If you think about it, what really gives you that satisfying feeling of belonging and joy? For me, it’s being in nature, having deep, meaningful conversations and being absorbed in a creative project.

So what does this have to do with enjoying summer? Well, it’s doing those things that are meaningful to you, that give you that deep sense of satisfaction that help us to enjoy our time. So is it trips with family? Playing? Drawing? Having quiet? Gathering with a few important folks? Stretching or Exercising? Making wonderful meals?

How can you better enjoy summer?

Ok, so I have been spending alot of time discussing awareness. Let’s now tie that to your wellbeing. Like I mentioned in the last entry, without the awareness we don’t have conscious choice. Without conscious choice we don’t have control, or responsibility of our wellbeing.

With awareness we are in control, and responsible, for our wellbeing. That said, to improve, or be at our potential best, we need to be aware so to make the choices in alignment with what we say we want.  This is how we access our potential best (See next post on accessing your potential wellbeing).  What better time to stop and be aware than spring!

How often have you found yourself thinking depressing thoughts, belittling attempts at improving yourself, judging your actions, or letting the negative self-talk convince you that you aren’t worth anything, or why bother??

You aren’t alone, though saying that doesn’t make it any better. The reason people need ‘outside’ help, like a coach, is because they often don’t see the greatness in themself, and have not been trained to focus on this.  But it possible, and those thoughts aren’t true.  Really.

Is it conditioning, perfection, expectations that get in the way? And can we learn to move beyond, and really acknowledge the big, wonderful person that we are?  Absolutely, it just takes practice, training, knowledge, and a belief in you! And sometimes someone to lean on until you stand firmly on your own…

What better than a new year’s resolution? Being your best every day. What is your best? You know what that is for you. And every day it changes.

So what is critical is not allowing judgement, assumption, negative thought or opinion sway or influence your view on what is your best. Only you can say. If you want more on this, go read The Four Agreements, by Don Miguel Ruiz (http://www.miguelruiz.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=6:the-four-agreements&catid=13:books&Itemid=7).

It takes practice to think different, let alone do different things to be healthier.  But, it starts with an idea, a thought.  When you are ready to explore and change the landscape of your mind and actions, I am here to help.  Visit Wellness in Balance, www.wellnessinbalance.com for more information.

At this time of the year, people want to make changes in their life, so they set up ‘New Year’s Resolution’. But many will fail. This is because the fail to establish a workable plan that they are committed to accomplishing.

Ideally, goal-setting involves establishing specific, measurable and time-targeted objectives. When established in this way, goal setting is an effective tool for making progress since participants know what they must do to achieve or help achieve an objective.

We can determine our goals by being clear on what is important to us. By understanding our values, we can set more appropriate goals for ourselves. Instead of the generic ‘I want to lose weight’, than we can set up SMART goals around this with a higher likelihood of success.

How is this different than a New Years Resolution?  By setting up SMART goals, your can better access, in a realistic and practical way, the life you want to be leading.  When you make a New Year resolution, you are hoping for a change, wishing something better or different. But without a follow through, a plan of action and maintenance, it is likely not going to be much more than a nice idea.

And aren’t your dreams worth more than that?  So, what do you need to change your New Year’s resolution into a successful solution?
