I began a recent teleclass by sharing the health issues that many of my health coaching clients have in their quest for vibrant health. At the end of the call, when I asked what had been something of value that my audience had heard, one of the listeners said that it was to realize that she was not alone in feeling some of the issues that I shared my own clients were feeling.
It is so reassuring that we are not alone, that we are all doing this Life thing together. It helps us reduce the anxiety, the guilt and the shame of not knowing really how to go about making changes and choosing higher. The power of community is really very helpful, not to commiserate with each other, but to realize that it is not necessary to isolate to lick our wounds when things seem not to be going the way our egos decide they should.
That is why I am starting a series of posts with this list of issues, and some recommendations on how to find solutions to them. My first post will just be the list, so you, my readers, realize that you too, are not alone. In upcoming posts, I will be focusing on each one of these topics and expanding on them.
For now, please comment below if you also are experiencing some of these issues:
- Emotional eating as a coping mechanism
- Disconnection from the body and hunger signals
- Food cravings and addictions
- Choosing “convenient food” over “healthy home-cooked food”
- Mindless eating
- Poor elimination
- Lack of exercise
- Lack of self-care and alone time
- Low energy
- Low self esteem
- Fear and guilt
- A feeling of powerlessness
- Boredom, frustration, depression, confusion
- Difficulty in catching the vision of a purposeful life
Catch you in the next one!
