Supporting Your Emotional Wellness Through Coaching
Do you need help dealing with the stresses of Covid-19?
When you are facing difficult times, do you think is it going to get worse before it gets better?
As the saying goes, when it rains it pours. Let’s use the RAINS (recognize, acknowledge and accept, invite, non-attachment, self-care) mindfulness model to bring clarity, increase our resilience and build an action plan to move on.
Here are some key ways a Coach can support you through this time!
Recognize your thoughts and emotions associated with the stress. Notice them without judgment and name them i.e. “I am stressed” or “I am feeling isolated”.
Acknowledge and Accept
Acknowledge what you are experiencing, feeling, and thinking. Accept it as the present reality and allow yourself to be with it in a compassionate way. This may start to ease your emotions almost immediately.
Invite coaching curiosity into the process to ask questions and help you makeshifts. You may not know the questions to mentally enquire yourself. With this process of investigation, you are moving towards a more meaningful life. The investigation may dissolve the emotion even further at this step.
Non-attachment and Awareness
Our thoughts and emotions are not who we are; they are part of an experience we are having. This brings freedom, ease, and a sense of peace in the middle of this all. We can reconnect with our values and redirect our focus and energy to an action plan.
Self-care means making a conscious choice to take intentional actions that increase mental, emotional, and physical health. A self-care plan can help you manage your stress and maintain your professionalism. Getting regular sleep, eating a healthy diet, and getting some exercise are practices for a healthy mind, body, and soul.
This crisis will end at some point. Let’s use it to bring out your best. Let’s make this world a better place. This method is a powerful way to help you during this challenging time.
