5 benefits of life coaching
Do you ever feel stuck, unsure of your direction in life, wondering what to do next? Speaking with a life coach could be life changing, helping you to find clarity and clear the haze.
Life coaching as a profession has exploded in recent years. Many of us need a helping hand from someone outside of our circle, someone with a toolbox of techniques and tips to help us refocus and inject meaning into our lives.
Here a 5 top reasons to see a life coach:
1. Set goals for your life
There comes a time when we realise life is short and we can’t possible do everything imaginable. A life coach can provide support and advice to set goals and focus on what’s truly important to you, what makes your heart sing. By setting goals, we create a life road map – directions to what we want to be, do, have and achieve.
2. Support and motivation
Think of a life coach as a cheerleader; someone who won’t judge your choices or criticise you when you fall down. Instead, they’ll hold you accountable and help steer you back on track. It’s no wonder why the world’s top sports stars and business people have coaches on their payroll!
3. Boost confidence
Our mental health is incredibly important. If we’re out of sorts, anxious, depressed, or worried, our relationships, work, and overall health and wellbeing suffers. Studies (including a leading study from the University of Sydney) have found that life coaching can significantly uplift our mental health and help carve a positive attitude towards life. It’s the fuel for our fire.
4. Better relationships
Relationships can be complicated, as our thoughts, feelings, and past patterns intertwine with another’s. Often we need an outsider’s perspective to see our relationship issues more clearly, as well as strategies for communicating better and being more assertive.
That’s where a life coach comes in – helping us become more sophisticated communicators, so we can articulate our wants and needs, and meet the wants and needs of the important people in our sphere.
5. Balanced life
Perhaps the top reason to see a life coach is to achieve that elusive work-life balance. They teach us how to structure and balance our life, spreading our time and energy across all areas – work, family, relationships, health and fitness, hobbies and holidays. Armed with these strategies, we are on track to gain greater satisfaction in our life, learning to take things in our stride and enjoy every moment.
