How your life is, and will be, is entirely up to you.
Decide what you want, how you want it and when.
Once yu have that in place you can start to work towards it.

How’s the Lockdown going for you?

Life-confidence-coach-coaching

Is this you or are you loving it?

Another video created during the Covid-19 lockdown.

Any issue that arises in this situation is often just a condensed version of what we experience day to day.

The same principles apply.

At the time of writing, we are five and half weeks into being confined pretty much to home.

This will seem such a weird concept when we are looking back on it.

We may not remember how we spent our days.

It may be like looking back on school summer holidays and remembering it as sunny and fun every day.

Or perhaps the opposite.  

Either way, I hope that we remember the good changes that we’ve had to make and continue to implement them once it’s not mandatory.

The planet is loving that we aren’t traveling so much.

Less pollution from cars, ships, and planes.

Whilst everyone is loving seeing the planet have time to recover a little, I’m not so sure that holidays will be forfeited to keep it going!

We can but hope.

If you’re looking back from the future at this blog, did you make any promises or plans for yourself that have slipped by the wayside?

I’d love to hear!

As ever, do call if I can help. 

Look forward to speaking soon,

Negative thoughts are creeping in

Jessica-hylands-life-coach-coaching

Are your thoughts creating negative emotions?

Spending a lot of time alone can make your head hum.

If it starts to hum it will usually be down to one of two things:

  • Boredom
  • Unresolved issues

Whichever the reason, it can become quite difficult to cope with.

Your thoughts start going round in circles and get more and more intense.

What may have started as a small niggling issue gets blown out of all proportion and ends up feeling as though it’s going to swallow you whole.

I hope this video helps to shed some light and gives you a way forward.

Please do get in touch if you would like to talk about anything you’re going through. 

Let's see how I can help.  

Look forward to speaking soon.

Bye for now!

How quickly do you lose your temper?

Jessica-Hylands-Life-Coach

Does your temper feel like a special Covid-19 temper?

Are you losing it more than usual?

At times, when we are in, what may feel like an increasingly confined space with others, tempers can flair.

We can feel more irritable than normal.

Why is that?

And what can you do about it?

We are in lock-down at the moment because of the Covid-19 virus.

We don’t know when this will end.

But can you imagine that as you are reading this in a year’s time, that it will be a distant memory.

I wonder what will have changed in the world as result of this pandemic?

My hope is that there will be more working at home and so less pollution with everyone travelling so much every day.

Less waste because we will remember having to eke out our supplies, not being able to freely go to the supermarket at the drop of a hat and stock up as we normally do.

More consideration for others as we’ve had to get used to respecting each others space.

Keeping a check on our elderly neighbours.

Will some good come of it?

We’ll see.

But back to being more irritable than normal......  I hope this video helps to explain things and help to calm things down for you!

As ever, do call if I can help.

Are your relationships good?

life-coach-eastbourne

Good or bad.

Every one of your relationships is meaningful.

Are your relationships good?

I’m sure that for a lot of us we have a least some relationships that aren’t running as smoothly as we’d like.

It can really get you down.

This relationship may be one with someone who is close to you.

Or someone who has influence over you, like your boss.

Or even someone with whom you come into contact but isn’t an associate of yours as such. Maybe a friend of a friend. Maybe your partners uncle who turns up at every family gathering.

So what’s this all about?

What’s the big deal about this relationship business?

I do hope this video shines some light on the issue for you.

Do call if this raises issues for you and you’d like some help.

Has your New Year started well?

Has your New Year started well?

Crystal Ball

This can be a brilliant and exciting time of year, or it can feel as though there's a big hill in front of us to climb.

The New Year can be a funny time.


Are you raring to go, full of plans and ideas?


Or are you someone for whom January certainly doesn't feel like the time to be setting goals and feel enthusiastic?


To be honest, the New Year doesn't mean much to me in terms of 'New Year New Start'.


I do find though that over Christmas I've generally had a little bit more time to stop and think.


The regular 'busy-ness' of my life changes. Probably still busy with things in the diary but its a different kind of busy. 


It feels  to me as though the world goes to sleep for a few days.

Most people are holed up in their homes. The streets are empty. There's not all the usual noise going on.


I find that relaxing.


This give me the chance to let my mind settle and to think. 


The act of doing that tends to bring forth ideas.


It wakes up dreams that I'd forgot I wanted to achieve.


Once everything goes back to normal after the festivities, I feel full of enthusiasm for the ideas I've been having. 


Maybe this can be for you too.


It's not necessarily about joining in with the New Year's Resolution hype.

It's about you.    

 

Do it for yourself,

 not just because it's New Year and everyone's at it.


Let me know how you get on!


Look forward to speaking soon,

Achieving your dream

dream-Jessica-Hylands-confidence-coach

You have to have a dream if you want it to come true.

Do you have a dream?

And is a dream the same as a goal?


That depends on what you do with it.


If your dream is something you use to entertain yourself on the bus on the way to work but never take any action on it then that is just a dream.


If you take that dream and apply some action to making it come true, then it becomes a goal.

I hope this video helps you clarify things around your dreams and goals. 

I'd love to chat with you about what might be troubling you around this topic.


Do get in touch.


Look forward to speaking soon!

Rest a while

The more we can cram into a day, the more righteous we feel

Jessica-Hylands-Life-Coach

What about having a rest?

Is taking time out of your day to relax, a treat, a necessity or a very naughty thing to do?

It may feel a bit of each but let’s focus on the middle one: necessity.

It’s easy to get bogged down with stuff that we have to do on a daily basis.

If you relax, it means that something on your list will have to wait.

To take some time out can feel as though you’re cheating in some way.

The reality is that relaxation is necessary for your well being.

It also gives you renewed energy to be able to tackle everything else that you have to get done.

Have you ever found yourself staring at a job that needs doing without actually starting it?

You feel just as worn out after the long hard stare as if you’d carried out the task, but it remains undone.

Very often this can be because you’re feeling overwhelmed with all of the things that you’ve got to get done.

Or you’re tired from having been on the go for so long.

Either way you’d benefit from a break.

 Taking time out of your day, or week, to do something fun, or even to do absolutely nothing but rest, can be very beneficial.

Can you make time for yourself?

Can you find time to do whatever it is that makes you happy?

I’m guessing that you can make time, so the real question is, will you make time.

Will you?

Do call if there’s anything that I can help with but otherwise, enjoy!

Happiness, eh?

Jessica-Hylands-life-coach

How much happiness do you have in your life?

Loads or not much?

Happiness can seem an elusive thing sometimes.

If you aren’t feeling as happy as you could be, what might be behind this?

Maybe you do feel happy but have a feeling that something is holding you back. Something is nipping at your heels all the time and upsetting your peace of mind.

If this is the case for you, do give it some thought.

What might be behind these feelings?

In order to be truly happy, we need to establish what is going on for us that is creating these negative feelings.

If there’s an area of your life that doesn’t feel good to you, can you change it?

Should you change it?

Will you change it?

As far as we know we only live once, so do you feel you should make this the best life possible?

Consider this in deciding whether to change a negative aspect of your life.

If you need any help then please do get in touch for a chat.

Otherwise I wish you all the best in digging deep to discover what it is that’s hampering your happiness, and clearing it.

It might not be easy but it will definitely be worth it!

Here’s to a happier future!

Look forward to speaking soon!
