Balancing Self Care and Self Improvement | #5


You know deep down what you want out of your life. You can hear the little voice saying “no, not this” even if you don’t know what to do about it. My job as a coach is to help you find out what makes the little voice say “yes!” It may seem counterintuitive, but I’m not always pushing my clients to rack up achievements and cross things off their to-do list. First, we work on mindset and self care — because if you burn out, I’m not doing my job to help you balance your goals with your life. 

In this episode I explain the pillars of my coaching practice: Self improvement (goal setting, confidence, productivity), self care (recovering from burnout, rest, mind-body-spirit), mental health (including neurodivergence), relationships (boundary setting, communication, and being willing to ask for help), and social justice (being aware of the structures and systems that pose challenges to your success).

Here’s an article about the study I referenced about the rates at which men and women apply to jobs — there’s more to it!
