Life Coaching provides an opportunity for an individual to take a 360 degree review of their life from well-being to career to identify areas which could be improved and with some focus can make significant changes to the way they live. We all have what’s called “blind spots” areas of our lives that are not quite working out as they should but are often the issues may be hidden from view. By working with a Life Coach you will be given the confidence to examine “blind spots” and to make incremental steps to improving that specific area of your life that can have a positive major impact of the other areas of your life.
If you are finding it difficult to motivate yourself, or you are not sure where to begin, a life coach can work with you to help you identify goals that will take you in the direction you are aiming for. They will work with you consistently to help you take incremental steps for a positive change going forward.
There are always areas in our life which we could improve and often they are the ones we neglect most. We may keep putting it off, distracting ourselves or burying it completely in denial. When we take action we begin to take charge of our lives, we begin to become the masters of our own destiny rather than a passenger along for the ride.
Outdoor Coaching is still Life coaching but it undertaken out in nature. People often respond better to life when they are outdoors and research highlights the positive benefits of nature. The coaching session can take the form of a walk in the woods or a stroll on the beach. It covers all the same areas of coaching but you have the added benefit of being in the fresh air. We have had some of our most illuminating moments whilst sitting on the sand staring out through the waves. Outdoor Coaching is tailored for the ability of the individual being coached but is essentially a walk in nature with a qualified coach who will help you identify areas of your life that you may wish to improve.
The World Health Organisation highlights: “Health is a state of complete mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease and infirmity.”
Well-being then should be described as being at your maximum physical and mental potential. Full of vitality, energy and your body and mind working at their optimum level. We all have days when we feel like this hopefully but then we get stressed, overwhelmed or even upset and angry. This impacts on our health and we often make poor lifestyle choices that further damage that wellbeing potential. The world we live in now has major impacts on our health, this fast paced living with constant stimulation and convenience eating can only be sustained for a short period before it starts to impact on our wellbeing and eventually our long term health. By taking time to collaboratively examine areas of life that could be improved or changed you will start to have lasting benefits that will make life more enjoyable.
Well-being is the balance point between an individual’s resource pool and the challenges they face.
