As the holiday season approaches, it’s easy to get caught up in a whirlwind of panic, stress, disappointment, and self-neglect. But what if this year could be different? What if you could approach the holidays with the intention of truly enjoying every moment?
Your typical approach might involve a long checklist of tasks that include decorating the entire house, hosting multiple gatherings, buying extravagant gifts, and baking an assortment of cookies from scratch. On top of that, you have a vision of creating a picture-perfect holiday setting, just like the ones you see on social media or in magazines.
Overthinking, feeling overwhelmed, experiencing low confidence, and a lack of motivation are some of the common challenges that individuals often bring to our attention when they join Detox the Mind.
Overthinking is like a persistent whirlwind in our minds, where a single scenario can be analyzed from every possible angle, none of which are usually helpful.
Ever felt like your thoughts are either black or white?
“I either win or I’m a failure.”
“I do it perfectly or not at all.”
This “all or nothing” mindset can funnel our focus to what feels off, leading to feelings of anxiety, overthinking, and overwhelm.
And that nagging question, “What’s wrong with me?”
Ever feel paralyzed when making decisions? Despite taking a breather, chatting with friends, and seeking advice, you still feel stuck. Why?
Your brain is wired for self-preservation. The moment you’re unsure, it signals your nervous system to back off or shut down, leading to that all-too-familiar “HELP, I’M BLOCKED!” feeling.
How do you react when you’re faced with discomfort? I tackle this question with clients multiple times a week. Some dodge discomfort, while others confront it head-on. So, what sets these two groups apart?
Those who sidestep discomfort accumulate emotional pain and dissatisfaction. On the flip side, confronting discomfort paves the way for liberation and true satisfaction. After offering countless coaching sessions, it’s become clear that fear is the common barrier to facing discomfort.
I want to dive into a topic that many high-achieving women like us can relate to: overthinking. It’s that constant loop of thoughts that can take over our minds and steal precious energy. But fear not – I’ve got some insights and strategies to help you manage overthinking and conquer your week with clarity and confidence.
Let’s talk to you about a prevalent but often overlooked obstacle that might be hindering your full potential: anxiety.
For many high-achieving women like yourself, anxiety can subtly creep into our lives, causing restlessness, sleepless nights, and a constant sense of dread. It’s this silent enemy that can chip away at our confidence, self-belief, and eventually, our success. But the first step to overcoming it is acknowledging and understanding its presence.
You may have the question in mind: “Do need coaching?”
Sometimes we think coaching is like therapy and that we must have a problem in order to need it.
It’s a valid concern, and I appreciate your desire to assess your needs and make informed decisions about your personal growth and well-being…BUT….
Let me remind you that while therapy is for those who need it, coaching is for those who want it.
The last few weeks, when concluding our private coaching calls, I’ve heard my clients say things like; “I feel 50 pounds lighter” or, “I feel so light and happy” that it made me think I needed to add “weight loss” to the benefits of my programs.
The weight my clients lose transcends the numbers on a scale and delves into the realm of emotional well-being.
Imagine a weight loss that makes your mind feel clear, your chest light, and your life filled with genuine happiness. Intrigued?
