Badger Coaching Moment
By giving ourselves what we need at each moment, we naturally get more in the flow and everything becomes easier and effortless
In this month’s Coaching Moment we will think about our needs. Denying our needs causes burnout; it causes us to be unbalanced. When we deny our needs, we are blocking ourselves from knowing what our true desires are and from succeeding at a higher level. When we slow down and start giving ourselves what we need at each moment, we begin listening to our bodies and our true selves. Whether it be satisfying a need to be in nature OR a need to go out on the town, OR a need to fully relax and to not do anything at all OR a need for a specific food OR a need to allow ourselves to laugh out loud. When we stop depriving ourselves and start to respond to our needs, we become more powerful, more certain in ourselves, and more clear in our intentions.
Challenge of the Week: For one day this week, give yourself what you’ve been denying yourself. See how it creates an impactful shift for you!
