With a plethora of opportunities online, how do we navigate our way to achieve our wellness goals and avoid overwhelm?

“I know what I should be doing, but I don’t know where to start!”

I hear this so much from clients I coach as it is a challenge to cut through the information overload and to begin on your mind and body transformation. They have already taken the first steps but now they feel pressure of what they ‘should’ be doing. So firstly, reduce the word ‘should’, talk to yourself kindly and seek support.

I myself have a therapist, a personal trainer, a sleep coach

and I attend business, fitness, dance, parenting and mental health courses regularly which specialise in an area of my work or life I need support with or want to improve. I too am a coach, in the morning I coach dance and fitness working with women who want to feel strong in mind and body and then on an afternoon I am coaching people media, digital and YouTube skills so they can build a brand online.

But I could not give as much as I do or grow in myself if I did not have selected people and consumed content which steered me forward.

My attention is on mind and body fitness and supporting my family

whilst developing myself, so I adopt an abundance mindset in investing in those areas and put my energy into them.

With this comes opportunities but at times I too am overloaded by courses, classes and information so I have developed these strategies to help me maintain motivation and a laser focus on where I am going in life.

Take a break, from emotional triggers. Realistically schedule in your other ambitions. You don’t have to do everything all at once

Write it down, stick it up and put all your focus into that area so you can adopt a laser focus and say ‘no’ to irrelevant information or negative people.

After doing a little bit of research, select a ‘team’ or a person who will support you to progress.
