Choose to live a healthy and fulfilling life. Wellness is more than being free from illness: it is a process of change and growth towards a mentally and physically healthy lifestyle.
To achieve optimal wellness, one must apply it towards every possible endeavour. You can apply a wellness approach towards your environment, community, career, belief systems, physical activities, self care, healthy eating, self esteem, and creative activities. Applying wellness in your everyday life will allow you to achieve your full potential and live with passion and purpose.
In order to live a higher quality life, maintaining optimal wellness is key. Everything we feel and do relates to our well-being and directly affects our actions and emotions. In order to subdue stress, reduce illness, and ensure positive moments in your life, you must achieve optimal wellness.
Imagine, trying to use a computer program that has other multiple programs running in the background as well. If your computer is anything like mine, the program does not run so smooth and efficiently. It is constantly being slowed down by the other programs, which nevertheless, results in a funnel effect for processing information.
The same goes for the mind. Bombarded everyday with new information to process, while having many other thoughts running in the background, will cause us to experience difficulties in focusing on the task at hand. In turn, becoming less efficient at what we are trying to accomplish.
The most common thoughts we see today that usually run in the background are; worries, fears, resentments, self- pity, finances, and/or relationships.
This is where Gobind Wellness life coach & counselling services can help. We work to close down those “other” programs, that are running in the background. Therefore, giving you the ability to focus on the tasks at hand.
Life will present challenges to all, however, facing them with a steady and efficient mind will yield success.
Whether you are trying to overcome depression, anxiety, addictions or simply trying to become more successful in your career, we can help you reach these goals.
STUCK IN ADDICTIONS?
Whether it be an addiction to substances, food, television, work or people; the problem isn’t the fact that people use these things, the problem is why.
The mind is a beautiful organ, however, composed of a destructive mind. It constantly wanders day and night stuck in resentments, ego, greed, lust and attachment. These are the main psychological health barriers that cause people to behave in addictive ways. They cause us to be blocked in all realms of wellness, including spiritual wellness.
Spiritual wellness refers to someone having the ability to be content, compassionate, honest, unself-centered, have a purpose and who has a connection with the universe.
Nevertheless, addictions are the repeat use of external things, which act only as temporary solutions to internal psychological problems. However, these are like band aides and never fix the real underlying root problems.
Working with a Counselor or a Life Coach can help address and overcome the psychological health barriers in ones life, in turn, yield optimal wellness.
STUCK IN DEPRESSION OR ANXIETY?
These feelings are the natural responses of the mind. Everyone feels depressed or anxious in life, whether it be due to life changes, bad experiences, trauma and/or worrying about future events. The problem is becoming stuck in these feelings and not having the ability to push through and grow out of them.
When it comes to children, parents help coach them through difficult situations and help them get through their emotions. As long as its suffice, we are their coaches.
The same should go with adults! Instead of remaining stuck in our emotions of anxiety and depression, we should try working through tough situations and working out the root causes. In turn, growing emotionally in life.
As this may sometimes be a difficult task to do on your own, it may be a good idea to connect with a Counselor to help counsel you through the difficult situations.
Gobind Wellness counsels and encourages clients on matters having to do with careers or personal challenges. We offer life coach & counselling services in the heart of Vancouver, Surrey, Calgary and Toronto. Furthermore, we are available for our international clients via Skype.
A mental health counselor helps individuals and families deal with difficult emotions, mental health disorders and trauma. A person with this title provides therapy and coaching to help his patients manage their stress, redirect disturbing emotions and set goals for themselves.
"You eat what you plant."
Most of us find ourselves confused, we eat healthy all day but then fall victim to the high calorie junk foods when retiring at night.
The next day we are bombarded with feelings of self-pity and depression, asking ourselves how it happened again. Even though we may have had an action plan in place.
The action plan usually consists of; hiding junk foods, consuming more healthy calories in the day, eating larger portions at dinner time, increasing physical fitness, incorporating more fruits and vegetables in our groceries, or just simply throwing out all our junk foods and starting fresh all over again.
The problem is the behaviour that drives us to make those poor eating decisions as opposed to the junk foods themselves. Most often than not, we are eating junk foods to suppress our feelings of anger, fear, boredom, depression and/or anxiety. These feelings are a direct outcome of our unresolved psychological health barriers or ego, resentments, lust, greed and attachment.
Work with a Counselor to address your psychological health barriers that cause you to make bad decisions. Then, implement a plan of action to incorporate a healthy lifestyle.
Many of us have experienced or are currently experiencing fear of what others think of us.
This usually stems out from the psychological health barrier of ego, where we need to ensure that people see us as “someone who has it all together.” Otherwise, we “look bad” in front of others and have this common belief that we are being judged or rejected.
As this can cause prolonged worry and fear, you may be subject to the onset of mental health issues such as depression and/or anxiety.
Love and accept the person you are today!
Remembering, that people are just as concerned about you as you are with them, which most likely is little.
Most individuals live busy lives and usually do not have the extra time to constantly be thinking of others, unless, when holding a resentment.
Nevertheless, a Counselor can help address both circumstances and allow for you to move forward in life.
Our children mean the world to us and we want to keep them as safe as possible. Especially with all that is going on in the world, it’s hard to let go and trust that they will be safe on their own.
However, there comes a time in your child’s life when they are all grown up and able to make their own decisions and experience life’s challenges. Some of these “challenges” may be very difficult, however, they are vital in your child’s emotional development.
As a parent, I remember staying home one day with my kids, as my wife was at work. I was tidying up and washing the dishes and my kids, ages 1 & 5 at that time, were playing in the living room directly behind me. Even though my eyes were on the dishes, my full focus was on the kids. I was on such a high alert, that it seemed as though I was on autopilot washing the dishes. Reason being, I wanted to ensure they were safe.
This is great for when our children rely entirely upon us. But when they grow up and head off to college, start a job or simply just move out on their own, we must let go and put our attention on a lower alert.
We must lose our fears and trust the system/universe to help guide and protect them as it did with us.
Swimming in fear and trying to control the situation will not only keep our mind's sick, but will also push our children further away.
Regardless of how much stress or fear you have over the safety of your kids, life will still only run on life’s terms. Whatever is going to happen will still happen, regardless of how much you try to control it. So let go and redirect that energy back to your own self-care.
If you are experiencing difficulties in trusting the system and letting go, it is best to connect with a Counselor who can help guide you back to the pool of Wellness.
In today’s world, dishonesty is heavily practiced. People lie even when they don’t need to lie. Most of the time, it’s the easier softer way, where the mind will want to take short cuts to avoid fights with the spouse, questions from children, rejection from employers or even to make a quick financial gain . Whatever the case, many do not tell the truth as the truth is usually accompanied by uncertainty. Therefore, most individuals will feel a lack of control and lie.
Control is our dilemma, we control people, places and things to avoid jeopardizing our ambitions, security and/or relationships.
As lies pile up over time, our minds become busy in coordinating and managing our stories. This can be quite the task and sometimes take a toll on ones health, leading to mental health issues such as depression, anxiety or fear.
Most of us have experienced bad times. These are sometimes the result of our own making. Take a closer look, did you play a part in that bad experience, were you dishonest or selfish in nature and put yourself in a situation to be hurt?
To know the problem one must see the problem. Take the time, when you retire at night, to journal on the parts of your day where you had been dishonest and see where you can make improvements.
To achieve optimal Wellness and live a healthier life, that is filled with positive outcomes, one must become honest.
We all interpret things differently. What may seem common sense to some may not seem so common to others as we all have experienced life differently. This means that we may take someone’s actions or words in a negative manner and become resentful, even though that was not the intent.
The problem occurs when this resentment stirs up in the mind causing us to behave differently and sometimes leading us to make bad decisions.
We may have many other things to blame for our bad day/week/month/years, but the fact of the matter is that the root cause was the result of that simple resentment/misunderstanding.
To resolve is to look back and to look back requires understanding. This is where a Counselor can assist.
We can either choose to go through life or we can choose to grow through life!
Going through life we only earn and chase the fruits in life. We are constantly stuck in the work, chores, family and sleep cycle.
Growing through life we get to learn and enjoy eating the fruits of life on a daily basis. We incorporate wellness within our work, chores, family and sleep cycle and we become motivated in pursuing the things we love doing.
As per the law of attraction, a negative mind will attract negative outcomes. Whereas a positive mind will attract positive outcomes. Connect with the universe and set your reality up for success.
Make the best out of life by spending time on self care and working through your barriers.
When dreaming, time seems to go by so fast. Where an hours dream is really an all night sleep. Waking up abruptly, we are surprised that it was just a dream.
Life is similar, we tend to be stuck in auto pilot trucking along hoping to achieve happiness. However, we just can’t seem to achieve this one goal as something always goes wrong or we simply just don’t have time to experience the joys that already exist in our lives.
Years, sometime even decades go by and we are left wondering where the time went.
If you can relate, the time is now to wake up and experience what a Life Coach can do for you!
