"LIVE YOUR LIFE FULLY" TOOLBOX

In order to "Live Your Life Fully," here are some "tools" you are going to want to have in your toolbox:

 

  • Ability to Identify and Express Your Feelings and Needs - In order for you to live your life fully, you will need to learn how to identify what you are feeling and what you need and then express those feelings and needs appropriately. Here are some great handouts to help you learn how to identify and express your feelings and needs and that you can use in our work together:

 

  • Mindfulness - In order for you to live your life fully, you are going to need to cultivate your ability to be aware of what is going on in your life, both inside of you and in your environment, and mindfulness helps you to develop and strengthen that awareness. If you work with me, I will help teach you how to be mindful. For additional help and information, you may also want to check out the following resources: 

    • I have several videos on my video page and YouTube channel explaining what mindfulness is, why it's important, and how to be mindful.

    • Jon Kabat-Zinn is one of the top authors and researchers in the field of mindfulness and has many resources availble to help you learn more about mindfulness and develop your mindfulness skills. Check out his books and audio CD's on Amazon or I-Tunes

 

 

  • Willingness to be Vulnerable - In order to truly live your life fully, you have to be willing to be vulnerable, which means being open and allowing your true self to be seen. This is also something we will work on together, and here are some additional resources you might also find helpful:

    • Brene Brown is one of the leading researchers in the field of vulnerability. Check out her talk "The Power of Vulnerability" to learn more about why being vulnerable is so important. You can also check out her website and her books on Amazon for more information.
