February Mid-Month Check-In

It’s the middle of February and time for another monthly check-in.  Yesterday was Valentine’s Day.  I hope everyone is waking up today with a love hangover. We had a quite evening at home enjoying a lovely dinner and nice bottle of wine.  Tony and I don’t get to spend a lot of time together during the week with both of our crazy schedules – So a day like Valentine’s Day is nice because it gives us a chance to slow down and spend time with each other.

Here is my mid-month check in for February.

Did you notice the new website design?  I’m sure you did and I will be tweaking it a bit more of the next few months, I’m liking the new style and flow.  I have also decided I will be integrating another website into this site.  TLC4Life is a website promoting wellness, self-care, lifestyle design and alike.  While I enjoy the site, I’ve really felt a desire to bring those same aspects to this site.  So, over the next few weeks, I will be adding pages and post from that site to this one.

My coaching practice has been quite busy that last few weeks, which feels really good.  I really enjoy working with my clients and hear that what we worked on gave them a better insight or approach to something in their life.

On the personal side, my parents visit ended and they returned home at the end of January.  It was amazing how fast the time flew by, even my husband, Tony, remarked how fast the time went.

My closet project did get started. Ten items were pulled out and now I need to decide if they go in the sell, donate or garbage pile.

I was hoping to do better with getting with the gym and food once my parents left.   That, however, has not been the case.  My health has been a mess with allergies.  I’m allergic to mold spore.  All the rain in California has helped the mold grow.  then a couple of dry days with a little breeze spreads it all around.   I’ve literally been dysfunctional for two days with my allergies are so agitated.  I’m hoping to get back on track before the end of February.

HOW IS YOUR February going?

are you still actively working your resolutions?  Or have they fallen to the wayside?

Are you starting to feel like the year is already get away from you?   Change takes time and focus. Don’t get upset about missing a step. Be kind to yourself stay focused.  It’s never too late to start.  Take time to think about what’s important to you and where you want to be this year.

Try utilizing these two simple questions to help you focus on what’s important

  • What would you like more of in the year ahead?  I would like to attract…
  • What would you like to let go of in the year ahead?  I would like less…

Use these questions as the base for your plan..  When a decision, choice or opportunity comes your way ask yourself, “Do I want more or less of this in my life?”.

If you want more, go for it.  If you want less, figure out what you can change to make it better work for you and what you want more of. These questions allow you flexibility and a gentler approach to living your life.

If you’re still finding it a challenge to get this year focused, let’s get together on a coaching call work it out

Do you need a bigger plate or just less on it?

This is the time of year we have a tendency to put a bit too much on our plate – both literally and figuratively.

We celebrate the holidays and load our plate and glasses with amazing food and beverage.

We  over-committee ourselves with commitments leading to a stressful environment during the most joyous time of the year.  In our rush to tend to projects, people, and things, we forget how sacred and precious our bodies are.  But nothing can rob us of self-love and worthiness faster than letting our bodies go.

Nothing can steal more from our joy of the season than running your body down with to much stress, overindulging and lacking in sleep.    When we forget to  treat our body with love and worthiness, we find it more difficult to maintain a healthy perspective.

During this most festive time of the year, give a little extra attention to love your body inside and out.   Drink an extra glass of water,  take a walk and enjoy the sights.  Doing so will not only leave you feeling better, but will help ensure you have the energy for the holidays.

Take a moment and get in tune with your body.  Listen to what your body is asking for – hear is a couple of suggestions.

  • Take three deep breaths – in through the nose out through the mouth.
  • Meditate for a couple of minutes in the morning
  • What is your body asking for?  water, sleep, food, exercise or maybe a massage?
  • Select something to do just for yourself every day.

I wish you and yours a joyous and happy holiday season.
