Life Stress and Reacting

Stress response is common to just about everyone but is experienced differently by different people. When stress or other uncomfortable experience can be reduced, you are available for other, more positive emotions and the amount of unproductive time spent caught up in those emotions is reduced. It can take some practice to change an emotional habit, and it is possible when you know how.


Ready to Experience More: Difficult Emotions

It's not unusual to recognize there are certain feeling or emotions that are unfamiliar or simply not in your repertoire and it's good to know what matters to you. You're just out of practice or you've somehow managed to keep those feelings at bay (for one reason or another) and they are simply outside of your normal range of experience. In either case, knowing how to easily access these different emotions is not within your routine awareness.


New Goals and Accomplishments

Coaching is about your success. No matter where you start or where you see the finish line, coaching is all about your aims. That's one of the reasons it work! It's human nature to seek more in ourselves. If you're already doing well, it's likely you know what else is possible for you. If you don't feel you've reached your potential in an area, you likely know where a change could make a difference. You can always do it on your own and you will probably succeed eventually.


A Stressful Family Relationship Pattern

It's a real challenge NOT to get caught up in situations like a family dispute, holding on to bad feelings, ongoing disagreements, criticism or feeling out of place. This is challenging whether it concerns your own immediately family OR you extended family or in-laws. These types of relationship patterns can sneak up without warning and it's easy to feel lost for a practical way to get a handle on your own feelings and reactions once you're knee-deep in it. And, it's usually too late to get things back on track by the time you're realized it's happening...again.


Facing a Career or Life Decision

Making a choice such as a career change, a move, or even a major purchase brings up countless questions, especially when it involves factors beyond your control. Knowing what is actually important to you is essential at a time like this. There are a number of 'unknowns' in this type of situation. And, there are always things you DO know.
