Holidays: The BEST Time To Go To Work – On You!

A common question often posed to life coaches is; "What is the best time to start life coaching?" The general response, albeit a patronising one, is that 'NOW' is the best time to start your coaching journey.

I am going to answer that question in much more detail and tell you why I think the best time to start being coached is when you are on holidays and in holiday mode.

Why is that? Have a think about your life and your work. How do you feel when your holidays finally come around? I'm guessing that for most people the answers would be centred around a feeling of relief and finally having the time to do the things they really want to do.

Often there is a build up and an anticipation and a sense of breaking free from the expectations and demands that go with living busy working lives. For many people their holidays are their reward for living the other 90+% of their lives doing something....or something's they would rather not do.

So why do I as a coach see this holiday period as the golden opportunity and the best time to start coaching?

Its because you are away from your working life and responsibilities. You have an ability and a much better opportunity to open to new ways of thinking, living and being. You are potentially more open, more relaxed, and of course you are totally removed from your daily routine.

It is this distance that enables you to better observe your life. You don't have to rush to get to work, or stay later to reach that deadline...let alone deal with your employer, fellow employees and your customers. You now have time (or at least more time than you had at work...) to focus on YOUR needs and what you would like to improve or change in your life.

However, what often happens is that many people simply recover and recharge their batteries during their holidays to go back to the same job/working situations and conditions to then repeat the cycle - year after year after year....

"See what my clients say about how coaching changed their life right here"

Is it any surprise then why more and more people are getting depressed and losing their hope as they fall into the habit of existing in their lives rather than actively living and engaging in them?

Instead of being excited and/or engaged in their lives they merely hang in there hoping something might change. Without conscious action it rarely does change - if you truly want change or a better life, you need to step up and start actively doing something about it. In other words you need to flip the switch and break the cycle.

Your holidays are a great way for you to explore new opportunities, new ways of thinking, and new ways of being.

What I would ask you to consider is to see your holidays not just as the opportunity to get away from work and the pressures that come with everyday life, but to see them as the wonderful opportunity they are to get closer to you and to reconnect to what makes you feel alive.

It is amazing how so many people will gladly spend thousands of dollars on their holidays, but wouldn't consider a mere fraction of that to engage a life coach to help them move towards a more fulfilling life and to experience better quality relationships.

I specialise in helping people reconnect to who it is they really are and to who it is they choose to become. What is your life and the quality of your family and relationships really worth to you?
