The need to have a doctor, a dentist, an optometrist … those are all a given. It’s a standard in our society to take care of our physical body in that way.
But what about emotional and mental HEALTH? No, I didn’t say mental illness. MENTAL HEALTH. EMOTIONAL HEALTH.
We eat healthfully and we exercise on the regular, not just when we’re hit with an illness. But what do we do to keep ourselves emotionally and mentally healthy on the regular?
We put things in place to make sure we’re physically strong and healthy. But what about mentally strong and healthy? What about emotionally strong and healthy?
It doesn’t make sense to me.
And then I get these questions a lot: What makes you different from other coaches? And what’s the difference between you and a therapist?There’s something about our culture that I find mystifying.
Bottom line is this: It’s all about results. Go to someone good. Someone who can help you get the results you came for.
There are wonderful doctors and terrible doctors. Wonderful therapists and terrible therapists. Wonderful psychiatrists and terrible psychiatrists. Wonderful coaches and terrible coaches. It’s up to you, the client/patient, to do your due diligence and find someone YOU connect to, and who can help you get what you came for.
Model for your kids and your family how to take care of your mental health and emotional health on the regular. I promise you, you won’t regret it.
