Perfectionism – a Joy Sapper

Perfectionism - Health Coach Tips! Sandra Shields, Certified Health Coach

If you are trying to be perfect in an area in your life, please stop right now and take a deep breath!
Perfectionism is a joy sapper.  A lot of times we are perfectionists because we are trying to live up to unrealistic expectations of someone else or ourselves, because we think we can’t be loved if we aren’t perfect, or don’t feel approved of, or good enough…….Perfect body, perfect hair, perfect student, perfect, career, perfect house, perfect cook, perfect wife, perfect mother, perfect child, perfect in your job, perfect speaker, perfect shoe shiner, fill in the blank. It is good to do things well, but if nothing is ever perfect enough to you, it is time to say it is good enough, and just be happy where you are at this moment. We are all perfectly created individuals with our own uniqueness to offer the world, and what society, your past, or anyone else tells you is perfect, and will make you happy, may not be true for you. Be kind to yourself, relax, enjoy the ride of life. Oh, and yes, take care of your inner self! You need a little bit of peace and me time every day, or it slowly whittles away at your core.

Winter Health Tips to Fight the Blues!

You Are Beautiful

Welcome February! What are you looking forward to this month? This is the time of year people can become starved for color and suffer from SAD. Try adding a splash of color to your wardrobe each day to boost feel good vibes. A positive thought before your feet even hit the floor in the morning can make a big difference in how your day goes, and it is cumulative! So, the more you put this into practice, the bigger the benefits, because you are literally rewiring your brain.

Deep breathing for a few minutes when you are feeling stressed, by breathing in four, holding for four and exhaling for 8 lowers stress. Try doing ten rounds of this with your eyes closed. It only takes a couple minutes, and finally getting outdoors into the fresh air, especially on sunny days, even for 15 minutes, promotes sleep, raises vitamin D levels, and boosts well being. Feeling happy and relaxed makes you radiate beauty!

Move Forward and Keep Striving for Excellence!

If you are human, you have made mistakes. You simply cannot be living and get everything perfect all the time.

When you start out as a baby, one of the ways you learn how to crawl, walk and run is by trial and error. There will inevitably be bumps and bruises, some more than others. The learning and mistakes go on throughout life.

Move Forward and Keep Striving for Excellence

As we get older and have more freedom and choices, the mistakes get bigger than stumbling and bumping your head as a toddler.

I have found mistakes have helped me grow, and some of my most meaningful moments and times have been when I was afraid to do something, and I did it anyway. Sometimes stepping out has brought much heartache and a longer recovery period for my heart than I could have ever foreseen. But it has always, always made me more than I was yesterday.

I want you all to know dear ones, that you are more than your mistakes. You should never feel defeated by them for long. You are more than you were yesterday, and you will be even more than that tomorrow. Let yourself be open to love, abundance, forgiveness and hope for the future. Keep going.

XOXO

Dreams and Purpose

Happy Friday Beautiful!

Dreams and Purpose

What are your dreams? I hope you have some, because at every age we need dreams and purpose no matter how young or old you are! Dreams give us things to strive for, hope, excitement about our lives, and goals. I have found when I talk to people that tell me they don’t have dreams, they are in a state of depression, illness or some other difficult circumstance. Finding a purpose and going to sleep with a dream can help.

Dreams and purpose also tie in with thankfulness. Can we be thankful in all circumstances? I admit it is much easier to be thankful when everything is going right, but it is possible to be thankful, have purpose and dreams when things are not. One tip is to get into the practice of writing down ten things you are thankful for every morning. You can have a pad next to your bed, a notebook, or jot it down while you are having breakfast on your phone’s notes. If you can’t think of anything, because your circumstances are too hard, start simple.

Please share with me, I want to know. What is one dream you have right now? What is one thing in your life that gives you purpose? Share with me in the comments. I promise, I am listening.
