17 Ways to Balance and Recharge Your Life

(03/01/2017)   Your family and career are important parts of your life. If anyone believes that, I certainly do, and the reality is that most of us spend more time at work than we do at home with our families. Yes, your job and your family are, and should be, an important component of your life. But wait. There’s more. There’s you. I work long hours and when I’m in the office, I’m on. I am also a wife, mother, daughter, sister, aunt, and a friend. Nevertheless, I’m quite clear on the fact that I also have to take care of myself. I have to practice the kinds of healthy self-care habits that help me find peace and reinvigorate me so I can be my best self for my family, for my employees, for my clients, and for me. There are times I get out of balance, but I have specific strategies to rebalance myself.Here are a few restorative practices that can help you manage the stress of a demanding career and family life: Read a BookMeditationPrayerDeep breathing exercisesLong soaks in the bathJournalingGratitude journalingRegular exerciseHealthy food choicesVacation timeSufficient sleepVisualization exercisesGardeningArts or craftsUpbeat or uplifting musicTime spent in naturePlay or recreation of any kind Anything that takes your mind off work or personal issues, especially done with a meditative state of mind, is wonderful for reducing stress and allowing you to rebalance. As I write this, adult coloring books are all the rage, and the publishers’ marketing angle is that coloring is a great way to relax. Some people bake or clean when they need to unwind. Others watch comedies and laugh away the stress.Figure out what you can do that will leave you feeling renewed and make it a regular practice. Recognize that when you feel so overwhelmed you think there’s no way you can find five minutes for any of your relaxation techniques, that’s the time you most need them.Do you know of some other great ways to balance and recharge?

Are You Rising Up?

(02/04/2017) Rise up! This phrase is being echoed across America as an estimated 100 million people prepare to watch the New England Patriots and the Atlanta Falcons in Super Bowl LI.  Whether a Patriots or Falcons loyalist, football fans are rising up to support the sport and their favorite team. As I watch the excitement for the pending big game and even participating in the hype myself, I can’t help but wonder how many of the 100 million fans are rising up to accomplish their own dreams. How about you? Are you rising up for your dreams?  Or, are you sitting in the stands watching others achieve their dreams? Just about everyone has a dream or two but it is estimated that about 80% of all people do not have a plan for achieving their dreams. Of the 20% of people who have a plan, about 70% of them actually achieve their goals.  Why? Career and Life Coaches site reasons for this low achievement rate from fear-of-success to negative environments. Nevertheless, a lack of a plan and goal setting is believed to be a major contributor to why people do not achieve their personal dreams. In my practice, a simple tool I call the Vision Plan has been instrumental in getting clients from inactivity to achieving goals and realizing dreams.   To rise up is to lift oneself up. It is about moving forward and taking action. Teams do not make it to the battle for the Vince Lombardi Trophy without the individuals on the team lifting themselves up through countless hours of preparation. This is true for each of us.In order to get to where you want to be, you must rise up from excuses, fear, and indifference and move into action.  As you celebrate the big game on Sunday, ask yourself these three questions: If I invested 10% of the time and money I’ve spent on the Super Bowl towards my dream, I could ____________? To rise up, I will need to _________________________________.What one thing could I do right now to create excitement about my dreams? Rising up requires taking a hard look at where you are and what it will take to get to where you want to be. If you’re ready to rise up by preparing for your future, click here for a free copy of the Yvette Gavin Consulting Vision Plan.  For additional ways to rise up and move into the career of your dreams, check out my book, Recalibrate!

Are your Relationships helping or hurting...

(12/23/2016) Nurturing your dream is your responsibility. One key to taking responsibility for your dreams is to be very clear about who is supporting you and who isn’t.  Too often I see people suffering through toxic relationships that sucks the life out of them.  I’ve had a few in my life and found that planning time to reflect at the end of each year helps me to move into the new year with clarity and greater hope. As I reflect on the events of the year that’s ending and my vision for the future, I consider the people in my life one-by-one.  This is, of course, an emotional part of my year-end/ year-beginning reflection because it always includes happy and exciting moments shared with others and some very low and painful times as well.  Nevertheless, I do a relationship assessment because I am aware of the power of influence from people in my personal circle.As I reflect on the people in my life, I ask myself these two critical questions: 1.  Who was a source of light, support, and inspiration?2.  Who was a source of darkness, drought, and despair? After answering these questions, I move on to developing a quick action plan for moving forward.  For my sources of light, support and inspiration, I consider possible ways to have that person in my life more.  Perhaps I’ll do something special and unique to let that person know how much I value them and our relationship.  One way I’ve expressed this gratitude to my light-giving friends and family members is by spending a day with them at a really high-end spa.  I also make a conscious effort to be a source of light, support, and inspiration to that person.  For my sources of darkness, drought, and despair, I’ve had to examine the relationships a little deeper to determine a course of action.  To do this I start with the mindset that it is not healthy nor Godly for me to remain in personal relationships with people who bring harm to me whether it be physically, emotionally, or mentally. Those who bring darkness, obscures vision and hinders dreams are not allowed to stay in my close circle of friends.  My purpose in this world is too important for me to allow anyone to obscure my vision and hinder my dreams.  Below are some ways I have effectively handled people in my life who were sources of darkness, drought, or despair: Fierce Conversations - Susan Scott, author of the national bestseller book Fierce Conversations, says a fierce conversation consists of passion, integrity, authenticity, and collaboration. When my dream hinderers are people close to me, I first make sure they are aware of my needs and expectations of the relationship by verbalizing them with care and candor. For me, this bold and courageous conversation is not about pointing fingers or assigning blame; it is about moving forward with the relationship while achieving my dreams. Set Boundaries – Setting boundaries starts with knowing what type of behavior is and isn’t acceptable for you. Once I was clear about my acceptability level, there were people I chose to discontinue a close relationship with, and there were others I decided to limit how much time and thought I invested in the relationship.  For instance, if you have a friend who doesn’t understand what is appropriate behavior when attending a company event with you but otherwise is a good friend, consider setting boundaries around what type of events you attend with this friend.   Love from a Distance –  Choosing to let go of a toxic relationship doesn’t mean that it has be surrounded by unforgiveness or anger. I particularly like what author and relationship expert, Daphne Rose Kingma said about letting go.  Kingma said, “Holding on is believing that there’s only a past; letting go is knowing that there’s a future.” There comes a time when it is best to let a relationship go because your future is too important to hold on to the past.  I have fond memories of former times but realize that everyone in my past is not good for my current situation nor my future. Those are the people I love from a distance. There is no unforgiveness, no sadness, and no offensives held against those whom I move to the ‘love-from-a-distance’ category. On those few occasions when I run into them or hear from them, I am pleasant and loving. What about you, is your dream important enough for you to reflect on the relationships in your life?  I would love to hear your thoughts on the subject.  Leave me a comment and let me know what you’re thinking? With Love and candor, Yvette
