Life Skills & Health Coaching

Improve Health by Using Your Senses

Learning how to manage your energy and emotions for the marathon that is life is no easy task… negative experiences can blindside you, leaving you anxious, full of self-doubt and with a lack of energy, contributing to health problems. Armed with the tools you need to ensure that you can successfully manage your emotional and physical health, your general well-being can be improved significantly.

Increasing or Depleting Energy

Do you sometimes (or more often than that) experience emotions that are place huge demands on your energy levels? Perhaps you are experiencing mental exhaustion or perhaps you have noticed certain other symptoms – physical ailments, once steady relationships going off track, vague feelings of dissatisfaction?

Whether you have a tendency to suppress or express unwanted emotions, neither of these coping mechanisms can be maintained on a long term basis.

Many people experience physical symptoms that can be traced back to their emotions. On an intuitive level the connection between body and mind has been accepted and discussed for a long time.

Simply think back to a time when you experienced anxiety: perhaps you had to write an important exam, or “perform” at your peak during a group discussion, or perhaps you had to impart some unwelcome news to another person. And if the anxiety was severe, you may remember that it had an effect on a specific part of your body – perhaps your throat became constricted, or your hands were shaking, or you felt the anxiety in the pit of your stomach.

These reactions can have a positive effect – keeping you “on your toes” and ensuring that you are in a state where you can perform at your peak.

It could also have a more negative consequence – especially if the experience becomes habitual, so that your energy is depleted, leaving you feeling tired, listless or even at a stage of burnout.

What you perceive and think affect your emotions and energy

Often these type of experiences are triggered by what you hear, what you see and by smells and other sensory experiences. They are also maintained by how you think and the language you use – both when you engage in “self-talk” or in speaking to other people.

Think about how often you may link language or sound to other experiences – for example, a single word or song or phrase can trigger a strong connection, whether of a past experience, an emotion, a person, and so on. These connections are different for everyone and linked to each person’s personal history, experience, style and patterns.

Thoughts could be regarded as equal to language, but it is more than that. Our thoughts involve all our senses, and depending on your personal way of viewing and thinking about your experiences, you will have a very unique way to react to these.

Often our thoughts are responsible for our emotions: we can become so conditioned to a specific way of feeling that we find it difficult to change our habits, even when we desire to do so.

If you are experiencing continuous challenges in terms of changing habits that are having an effect on:

  • Your health, such as recurring allergies, problems with digestion, headaches, etc.
  • Energy levels
  • Confidence
  • Self esteem
  • Ability to relax
  • Ability to break unhealthy habits

And if you have answered yes to any of the above, consider whether you could benefit from coaching discussion – one that can assist you with identifying the source of the problem as well as learning how to overcome the challenge(s) in a step by step manner with immediate benefits.
