We are living in unprecedented times right now. The current crisis has hit hard and swiftly. Living in times of crisis causes stress, overwhelm, fear, and loneliness. We all need to know how to cope during a crisis. We need to understand how to care for ourselves and our loved ones when living through a crisis.

 

Coping

It is easy to forget proper coping skills and become worried, anxious, stressed, impatient, and angry. But these thoughts and behaviors do us no good as it is unsustainable to stay in ‘fear and flight mode’ all the time. We oftentimes do not know how long a crisis will last. So, our best bet is do what we can so that we can sustain.

March 5, 2020

Today, I want to discuss steps to building a healthier relationship with yourself so that you can make strides towards building abundance, legacy, and wealth in your life.

 

Let’s explore these steps to building a healthier relationship with yourself…

  • First, your relationship with yourself reflects the relationship that you will have with others. When you take the time to develop a healthier relationship with yourself, you will be more in tuned with your own needs and wants.
  • Secondly, when you are clearer about what you desire and what you want, you will understand more clearly what you will and will not tolerate in your life.
  • Third, when you are clearer about who you are, your sense of time and sense of value will become more concise. You will make decisions that will serve your life goals and purpose and will become more intentional about how you spend your time.

Implementing these 5 steps to building a healthier relationship with yourself will help you build a life that is more fulfilling, peaceful, abundant, and joyful. Your stress and anxiety will be reduced, and you will find that you will begin eliminating a lot of areas that you did not realize were not fueling you or making your life easier.

How to Live a Committed Life

January 30, 2020

Do you want to know how to live a committed life?

Do you want to improve the quality of your life?

In working with clients, I’ve come to realize that people are afraid of commitment. People are afraid to go all in for a goal or a dream. They are afraid that they will fail and that things will fall apart. People want guarantees that when they chase after a dream, the outcome will be how they envisioned it.

But, that’s not how life works.

 You will reap what you sow, but only God knows the future. Therefore, only God can guarantee the exact outcome. People who have chased after their dreams will tell you that you should focus on enjoying the journey rather than focusing only on the destination.

So, to start off this topic – 5 Reasons to Journal, let us first take the time to define journaling.

 

What is journaling?

Journaling is the process of recording one’s feelings, thoughts, and experiences.

Journals offer a way to track our progress, maturity, and growth through self-awareness, relationships, developmental stages, and life transitions. If done with true honesty and openness, journaling can help us uncover hidden truths, traumas, and beliefs that have unconsciously guided us in our lives.

Resist the urge to rush through the journaling process. There will be days when you write more. And some days, you may journal less. You do not necessarily have to journal everyday as long as it is a consistent regular schedule.
