What Do Recovery Coaches Do?
A recovery coaches job is to support a client in pursuing their own goals. While a person classified as a counselor or a therapist might diagnose addictive behavior and prescribe treatment, this is not the coach’s focus. Instead, a coach will offer someone the tools and guidance needed to follow the path they’ve already chosen.
This can include:
In other words, a recovery coach helps people with the gritty, day-to-day process of overcoming addiction. Recovery coaches are the boots on the ground within a support team.
A life coach is a type of wellness professional who helps people make progress in their lives in order to attain greater fulfillment. Weather it be a life with sobriety from addiction or not we all face challenges we need to overcome. Coaches aid their clients in improving their relationships, careers, and day-to-day lives. ... In creating these strategies, coaches target your unique skills and gifts.
We all have places in our life where we are blocked. Working together we will identify those blocks and find ways to manage your life and overcome them. Living a life with honesty, openness and willingness in ALL that we do will begin a journey that will bring peace to your heart.
When faced with challenges in your life, here are 7 tips I've learned to overcome obstacles:
Life is full of opportunities, and it is my goal to help you figure out which opportunities to take advantage of in
order to live the life you want. When you're raising your own bar, you must be willing to shred your old self. You're essentially creating a gap between you and people around you. Becoming the best version of yourself means getting back to your true inner self. As straightforward as that sounds, it's anything but -- honest self-discovery takes courage and tenacity. To approach your true self, you must turn away from distracting false beliefs that cloud or distort your self-perception.
Learning to be your best self seems so unobtainable to many. To some, if even seems impossible. But it isn’t. It just requires you to work harder and more diligently than you ever have. Is it worth it? Just ask yourself this: Would you like to be the smartest, best looking, fittest, funniest, best dressed, most compassionate, loving person you’ve ever been? Would you like to be your own definition of the perfect person?
If you answered yes, you’ve taken the first step to becoming your best self.
Self-awareness occurs when a person understands herself and why he or she thinks, feels and behaves in specific ways. It is the opposite of denial, which occurs when a person ignores or avoids difficult and problematic thoughts, feelings and behaviors in her life. Moving past denial and into a state of healthy self-awareness is not easy, but it is an essential component of any type of effective self-improvement
Mindfulness is another important aspect of life and recovery that is related to self-awareness. It’s a state of mind in which the person focuses on the present moment and tries to understand what is going on inside of and around he or she right now. Practicing mindfulness helps a person learn how to pay attention to her thoughts and feelings without trying to change, judge or fix them.
Choosing to live a life of awareness and mindfulness will provide the solution as to why we behave the way we do. Joining together with a coach to make this a presence in your daily life will help us get around any of our challenges each day..
Intentional living is any lifestyle based on an individual or group's conscious attempts to live according to their values and beliefs. These can include lifestyles based on religious, political or ethical values, as well as for self-improvement.
Here are eight simple ways to be intentional every day:
“Intentional living means understanding your fundamental beliefs and values, and then actively living your life in line with those values.” Tapping into those values on a daily basis marks the difference between living life passively and living it intentionally.
“Whatever the tasks, do them slowly
so not do any tasks with the goal
of getting them over with.
Resolve to each job in a relaxed way,
with all your attention.”
– Thich Nhat Hanh, Zen Master
In our daily lives, we often rush through tasks, trying to get them done, trying to finish as much as we can each day, speeding along in our cars to our next destination, rushing to do what we need to do there, and then leaving so that we can speed to our next destination.
Unfortunately, it’s often not until we get to our final destination that we realize what madness this all is.
And yet, it doesn’t have to be that way. It’s possible to live a simpler life, one where you enjoy each activity, where you are present in everything (or most things) you do, where you are content rather than rushing to finish things.
If these reflections appeal to you, lets join together to adjust you path to living a more fulfilling life.
“In every crisis, there are both obvious and hidden lessons, if you are open to them.
They are sometimes hard to see through the intensity
of the challenge. Sometimes they are painfully slow
to reveal themselves.
But if you start looking for them, you will see them.
If you embrace them you will be transformed.
Transformation is the hidden blessing
