I had the privilege of speaking at three different MOPS groups over the past few weeks. If you are not familiar with MOPS, it is a 50-year-old organization of thousands of groups of moms meeting around the world. One of the main purposes of the organization is to connect moms with each other in what has the potential to be a very isolating time in their lives.
Because I started an online group during COVID, it has been a while since I have been to a live group with moms sitting next to each other connecting over the table. It was so fun for me! Not only did I have the opportunity to pour into these precious ladies through leading a conversation about self-care, but I also got to just hang out with them and feel the community and support that are so evident when MOPS ladies meet together.
In my coaching calls with clients, at the beginning we like to identify supports and environments that they can lean on while making health habit changes. Typically, the “supports” are really just supportive people. The people a person feels are on their team and will encourage them in their health journey. Making a change is not easy, and having someone in your corner cheering you on can make such a difference!
So, who is in your corner? Who are the people who want the best for you? Who are the people you can count on to encourage you toward your goals? Part of my job as a health coach is being a part of that support system. Having someone with an outsider’s perspective who can hold you accountable can help you make the shift from “I know I should” … to “Here I go!!”
In my private coaching practice, I join the support team for busy women who do ALL.THE.THINGS ... but then end up feeling used up and exhausted by dinnertime. They want to have the energy after the have-to-dos to actually enjoy and be present for their people and to pursue their passions.
If that sounds like you, click on the button below to schedule a complimentary 15 minute Energy Reboot Strategy Session and we can work together to develop new healthy self-care habits with the support of your team so that you have the energy for the things that matter most!
