Hi, Queen Wellnista!

I wanted to share my top 5 tips to begin or refresh your health and wellness journey. We all have goals and different things we want to work on or improve in our lives. Why not make our attempts and efforts as impactful as possible no?

I have been on different and reoccurring health and wellness journies and I've picked up some great lessons to share to save your time and energy for reaching your goals. Working smart instead of working harder is a real thing.

5 Tips For Starting A Health + Wellness Journey

1. Identify your goal: make sure it's a goal that YOU are choosing for yourself. If it's not a goal that's coming from your own heart, you are not as likely to keep the motivation requirements to reach the goal successfully.

2. Identify "WHY" you want to work on the goal: Get clear on why you choose the goal, what does it really mean to you to master the goal? How will you feel? How will your life be improved by the goal?  This step is what determines your motivation level to achieve the goal versus wishing to achieve the goal.

3. Identify the first step for your goal: decide what you must do in order to take a small step toward your goal. What is one small action you can take daily or several times weekly toward the success of your goal? Building a routine is about building practice and with practice being mastered you are creating a habit, then when the habit is mastered, your actions can become a lifestyle.

4. Practice + Refine Your Strategy: Get into the action of practice. It's completely okay to make mistakes but the idea of practice is that you continue to learn from those mistakes in order to keep your overall momentum towards the big goal. Remind yourself of your "why" when you feel nervous, anxious, scared, or frustrated and keep going.

5. Create an Incentive Map: goal tracking is essential, track your progress on a weekly basis to keep your mind and your actions connected to working on your goal. Being that we are human, it is helpful to also create an incentive or reward for reaching the small milestones of your goal. I have a simple, effective, and FREE incentive mapping worksheet below that you can use for any goal that excites you. Just click the button below!

I Coached Beyonce's Daddy Lessons Song - Support From A Real Wellness Coach

Hello Beautiful Wellnista,

I'm so excited to start a new series which brings Wellness Coaching to a whole-nother level. In the ICoach series I pair popular songs that highlight an important emotional experience and then provide my best support and advice as a Whole Health Holistic Wellness Coach and Clinician.

Episode 1 of ICoach is dedicated to: Beyonce "Daddy Lessons"

My Summary of Daddy Lessons:

A young girl is raised by her father is taught to be strong, tough, and take care of her family. In some aspects she had difficulties with some of the life lessons he provided "It wasn't alway right, Daddy made me fight".

In adulthood the girl turned woman reflects on the tension and gifts held within her interpersonal relationship with her father. Her father warned her that men like "him" would come into her life and to "shoot" or avoid them. The woman's relationship with who her dad was during his life and who she loves also seems to be woven into the song's message. The ultimate message appears around letting go and being strong and recalling what her father taught her. 

Quote From Daddy Lessons: "Daddy made a soldier out of me".

Emotions Under The Lyrics:

Sometimes in life, we get used to being a strong tough girl (Pillar of Strength), or always having to be ready for people to disappoint, threaten, or fail us. Being tough and prepared is okay up to a point but once you reach the phase of losing enjoyment in your relationships or environment, it's time to take a step back and evaluate the overlap.

Tips and next steps:

1. Find a safe space. Create rest from practicing the role of "Pillar of Strength". You deserve balance and if you create spaces where you can move freely you will feel more freedom, connection, and  positive energy. Generally when we feel safe in environments is when we are able to be the most present version of ourselves.

2. Let your guard down: Practice being vulnerable. Cry, admit when you make mistakes, try something new that will help you step out of " Pillar of Strength" character. This can be something as simple as taking a new class, or sharing something with a trusted friend that makes you feel vulnerable. Or ask for help, this is usually pretty difficult for "Pillar of Strength" personality types.

3. Think about why you feel like this way: Is there something you are avoiding? Is there something in this experience that you enjoy? There is usually an answer for both. You might be avoiding chaos of the unknown or feeling emotionally weak and in the very same experience appreciate being a pillar of strength because it provides a sense of control... just some ideas.

4. Think about what facts or emotions validate this feeling: Is there any factual information from your experience that is enabling you to be in "Pillar of Strength" character? Maybe your family or friends encourage you to lead because then they will get to coast if your in charge. Or maybe you get good feedback from your friends and family when you act as the "Pillar of Strength". Again, just some ideas.

*These are suggestions for general consideration, my coaching suggestions will vary based on individual client context and detail.
