The Key to Counselling Kinesiology

Today I am busy preparing for my final oral exam for my Counselling Kinesiology course.

As I am preparing my notes, I am reflecting on all that I have learnt over the past year. I wanted to share with you what I have found to be the most valuable part of my course.

You need to go within before you can go out! This means that you need to look within yourself to see what your internal thoughts and feelings before you can look at what is happening on the outside in your life. If we are not feeling okay inside then the outside will not be okay. If we are feeling happy and calm on the inside then the outside will be happy and calm as well.

The next extension of this is that when things occur on the outside, like a stressful job or argument with your partner you need to first look within at your internal thoughts and feelings to see what the outside event is triggering on the inside.

Once we are able to deal with our internal thoughts and feelings, we are able to see clearly what is going on in the outside and let go of the emotion and drama that the outside can cause us on the inside.

Start to put the focus on your internal thoughts and feelings in your day to day life! Go in before you can go out!

Until my next blog, enjoy your children.

Time Freedom for Busy Mum’s Hot Tip

I wanted to share with you one of my hot tips from a workshop I ran last night on ‘Time Freedom for Busy Mums’.

To get control of our ‘out-of-control’ lives we need to start to look at the underlying emotional causes that are reason why we feel overwhelmed and out of control on the outside.

It is about going inside to see what our internal thoughts and internal belief patterns are which are causing us on the outside to feel crazy, out of control and like we are not getting anything done.

An example of this is if you feeling like you are not good enough, a not good enough Mother or a not good enough partner or whatever it maybe in your life. By focusing on these feelings of not being good enough, which are our internal feelings, we are able to make changes to these feeling on the inside.  Allowing us to feel more confident in our abilities and more in control of what is going on. At the end of the day, when you feel calmer on the inside it shows on the outside and life does tend to flow easier.

We need to continue to look at our internal feelings before we can focus on our external world.  Once we are able to make these changes internally, these will then reflect to the outside world.

Focusing on our internal emotions is what is important. Take your focus away from the emotion and drama that our crazy busy lives bring us. Make the change to focus on what is important and what we can change to ultimately make those long lasting changes to our lives.

Until my next blog, enjoy your children.

Time Audit

Time Audit

Do you know how much time some of us can lose to distractions??

2 hours a day =

14 hours a week =

60 hours a month =

730 hours a year!!! 

It sounds crazy when you look at the cold hard statistics of it, but it is very true! Just think how much you could get done if you had that time back!

A Time Audit is about exactly what the title reads an “audit” of your time. It is an examination, analysis and investigation into the way you use your time on a daily basis. By taking the time out to break down how and what you do with your day on an hourly basis you are able to analyse exactly where your time is going. At the end of this exercise you will be able to see the facts and figures of what you do each day and how you can start to use your time more effectively and efficiently.

1 hour of planning will save you 10 hours of doing!

Have you ever had that feeling when you get to the end of a busy day and flop into bed and think to yourself “I have not stopped all day long, but I feel like I got nothing done”! I know I have on many occasions. During this time in my life I would feel like I was constantly going and going all day but not really get anything completed. Therefore I was left to feel very frustrated and overwhelmed with everything I then had to do the following day. Enough was enough as I felt like I was on a never ending spinning wheel of work and never feeling satisfied with what I had achieved.

So what it a TIME AUDIT? It is writing down what you do every hour for a 2 week period to see exactly what you are doing with your time and not what you think you are. Email me for today for a copy of your free Time Audit for you to complete.

When I completed my time audit I was really surprised at the results. What I found was that even though I was really busy in my days, I was not productive in how I was using my time and that I was wasting a lot of time every day.

Remember that our perception of what we are doing will distort the reality of what we are actually doing!

Time Audit

As part of my new package I have created, called “Total Time Freedom, creating extra time for you” I would like to introduce you to the first step.

The first step in learning how you can create more time is to do a time audit on your day. This involves you writing down what you do each hour, every day for 1 week. I know when you read that your first thought is “yeah right, I don’t have the time in my busy life to get everything done and you want me to do more work??” Well yes it is more work for you to do in the short term. BUT in the long term it is a great tool to use to be able to assess exactly where your time goes!

Once you have it written down you can look at where you are losing and wasting time on an everyday basis. The most common time wasters are things like checking social media, checking emails and text messages, watching TV or just fluffing around! And then you can begin the interesting part to look at your emotional blocks for why you are wasting time…

When I did a time audit on my daily activities, I found that I waste a huge amount of time everyday, my vices were facebook, text messages and TV. I calculated on average 2 hours everyday I wasted on things that were not productive to helping me achieve the goals I want to achieve.. So in actual fact I was wasting:

2 hours a day

=

14 hours a week

=

60 hours a month

=

730 hours a year!!!

OMG!! That is huge and it was not until I actually looked at this on paper that I believed it!

Once I confronted with this information, I made a promise to myself to stop wasting time and start to get productive. By doing that I have been able to plan 2 workshops, almost complete my new package details during the day which has then ultimately given me extra time to spend quality time with my kids (this morning I was playing tennis on the wii with them – which is something in the past I did not have the time for).

I challenge you today to start a time audit on your day. I set up a routine of updating my time audit at lunchtime and at night after the kids had gone to bed. Give it a go and I will be interested to hear your results.

Once you have looked at the facts and figures of your time and daily activities then you can make a start to look at the emotional blocks that are causing you to waste time. For me it was self value – I was not valuing myself and thought I could not achieve, so I would use time wasters to self-sabotage my work tasks!

Until my next blog, enjoy your children.
