DAY 1 OFFER: ASSESS WHERE YOU ARE
Take the Happiness Audit pdf HERE
This 100-point checklist will help you review your life across ten domains. There is no “right or wrong” score, there is only where you are. Each item on the audit is a behavior that will support more resilience and positivity in your life.Jim Smith, PCC, Global Executive Coach | Improve Your Presence, Confidence, Health, Happiness & Leadership | Reduce Stress | ICF Mentor Coach Published on March 15, 2021
DAY 2 OFFER: BALANCE
At times, the world can feel like a dangerous place. The COVID Pandemic played into our darkest places of isolation and fear, and when we layer on that a war between the two largest (and nuclear-armed) countries in Europe, it can get hard to breathe.
The ancient symbol Yin-Yang reminds us that Order AND Chaos have always been there, flowing into and out of each other. While at times we feel more immersed in one versus the other, they co-exist.
Duality is part of the human condition. Masculine AND Feminine. Night AND Day. Sun AND Moon. Known AND Unknown. Grief AND Joy. Breathing In AND Out.
Reflect on the presence of UNCERTAINTY in your life right now. How you don’t know what’s going to happen tomorrow. That emotion can feel heavy and large.
Now turn (literally or in your mind’s eye) around and notice what you can be CERTAIN you’ll have tomorrow – the people who surround you, the skills/knowledge/experience you own, the groceries in your pantry, your capacity to walk, talk, sit, stand, breathe as you do today.Jim Smith, PCC, Global Executive Coach | Improve Your Presence, Confidence, Health, Happiness & Leadership | Reduce Stress | ICF Mentor Coach Published on March 21, 2022
