So day one of lowering our blood pressure! Today we are going to figure out what is bothering us. Stress is a silent killer. I say often in my motivational speeches: you cannot change what you will not acknowledge. When I start life coaching someone it is essential that I know what it is that is bothering them. You may know off the bat that it's your job, your weight or your relationship. But sometimes we don't know what is bothering us. So today I'll ask you to write about what is stressing you. You can either write in the comments or journal. If you don't know what's bothering you here are ways to figure it out:
1. Freewrite. If you write freehand you can just sit down and start writing and perhaps your real issue will come to the forefront.
2. Make a list of the five things that are annoying you today. They may seem simple but a pattern may clue you to the real problem.
3. Ask your best friend. Say what do I complain about the most? A real friend will tell you! Get clear about the problem so we can work on a solution!
