What is Self-Care?
It’s easy for many of us to help others when in a tough spot.
Give sage advice.
Encourage others to share and be there as a shoulder to lean on.
Then tough times come our way and our blinders come up as we enter our own battleground… but lose sight of what works in the midst of our own personal struggles.
Whether it is physical pain that throws us for a loop, marriage struggles, or something serious happening with a family member or child, self-care seems to be the first basic that goes out the window.
Bye bye exercise.
So long Meditation and prayer.
Time with friends? Not enough time!
Date night? That’s the last thing we want!
But…I have my friends and family!
Sometimes we need to reach out to a neutral party that is able to help us see our blind spots.
I know, I’ve been in a situation where I “knew better” and friends were giving me valid advice, yet I’m remained stuck in a toxic situation for years instead of being able to get the help and guidance I actually needed at the time.
This is why so many of us remain stuck. We can’t see the problem. We can’t see that we hold the solution. We don’t listen in a productive way to friends and family.
Why a Life Coach May Be the Key to Getting Some Traction
I’ve been in that sticky spot you are in.
I’ve tried it on my own just like you are doing.
Instead, I was spinning my wheels and going nowhere fast.
Let me help you get unstuck and gain traction as you learn from your past to use the lessons to create an even better future, blinders off!
This is what I do as a Life Coach and I love being about to help people get unstuck who have been trying for months and even years.
Don’t continue to struggle and spin in circles
If you know someone that popped into your heart while reading this, please share.
I work with people all over the world (Texas, California, Canada, Australia) so location is not a problem.
We can quickly and easily hop on the phone to see if we are a good fit and if I can help get you where you want to be.

Children THRIVE off of consistency
Children THRIVE off of consistency. When they know what to expect, they can rise to the occasion, whether it is setting bedtimes, homework routines, etc., if they know what to do and how to help, you better believe, you will be impressed!
In schools, they give out rubrics for projects. When they do this, the students know exactly what to do to get a certain grade. No surprises for the teacher or the students. Imagine if you laid out the rubric for your home where rules and consequences weren’t determined by your mood or energy level, but by your expectations that were already set and explained when everyone was at 100%.
Ever create a habit?
Just like children, our body and mind enjoy consistency. Ever create a habit? Smoking? Exercising? Making the bed? Letting the dishes pile up? Being late? Consistency can be a good habit or a bad habit. It is up to you to set up your life and your household with purpose. When things become a habit, you barely have to think about them. Imagine waking up early to walk the dog or exercise instead of being in a habit of waking up 5 different times after hitting snooze. Think about when you first learned to drive a bike or car compared to now? In the beginning, you really had to think about every little step and motion. Now, you might be multitasking while taking your morning commute.
Brain Hack Takeaway
The takeaway is this: Our brains love consistency due to ease and efficiency. Once you set the brain up for success, watch out world!
