Badger Coaching Moment
In order to fully capitalize on the opportunities presented to us, we need to be physically, emotionally, and mentally healthy and strong.
In this month’s Coaching Moment we will reflect on the importance of taking care of our physical, emotional, and mental well-being first and foremost in order to be able to take full advantage of the opportunities we are presented with on an everyday basis. If we are tired physically, it may be challenging to say yes to some opportunities. If we are drained mentally or emotionally, we will be reluctant to take on anything new that may be the one thing we need to help us move to that next level of success. In order to be ready for every opportunity, let’s make sure we are prepared by being physically fit, having an open & positive mindset, and cultivating emotional intelligence.
Challenge of the Week: This week, assess your emotional, physical, and mental well-being. Make some adjustments to get you stronger and more fit in each of these three areas.
Our Badger Coaching Moments are provided by Esther Harris ’88, a certified life/wellness coach and trainer. Esther is a former UW Track and Field and Cross Country athlete and is the founder of “How to Move to the Next Level from a Place of Power,” an impactful 12-week training program designed to learn powerful skills and strategies to move to the next level personally and professionally. We hope you enjoy and take advantage of her helpful tips and strategies!
