Suffering from a holiday hangover?

I think I have a hangover. No, not from alcohol, I chose to eat my calories this week. I have a love hangover. Even if you are single over the holidays, the time with friends and family can be overwhelmingly filling. Being surrounded by people who love and care about you, exchanging gifts, and sharing many (overly indulgent) meals together is an amazing gift of the holiday season.

The tough part are the days after. Like me, I'm sure you want that full of love feeling all year round! Who wouldn't?

So this week I am going to nurse my hangover with self love. What does that look like? Glad you asked!

My hangover prescription: - Move your body daily - I don't know about you, but I am nearing a sugar overdose with my mom's cookies. My goal is to move every day. Not just because I want to fit in my jeans, but because working out is the most natural mood booster. Even walking 30 minutes a day can change everything.

- Gratitude journalling - I've been slacking on this, and during a season where there is SO much to be grateful for! Instead of focusing on what I don't have, I'm going to use one of my Christmas gifts (thank you Bex!), to reflect on all of my blessings. Every day.

- Be compassionate - I'm always talking about compassion for others, but it starts with us. Understand that it's ok to be bummed out on occasion. Don't beat yourself up for past choices. Give yourself a break, and be as loving to YOU as you are your best friend.

- Stay hopeful - I know that my life is meant to be amazing, and filled with amazing people. Stay hopeful that God is conspiring in your favor. It may not happen on demand or along your timeline, but it WILL happen.

Sending you so much love!

PS. I'm offering a New Year's Jumpstart program for all who want to start 2015 off in the best possible position to find love. My goal is to remove the blocks that are keeping you from finding and keeping amazing love through a combination of techniques including hypnotherapy and traditional coaching methods. We will also create practical tangible plans to put you in the best position to meet your partner.

Through December 31st I am offering a limited number of jumpstart packages, which includes 3 coaching sessions, an online dating profile review/rewrite, and 6 weeks of text/email access for $697. Email info@racheldealto.com to secure your spot!

 

Who you should really be listening to....

Experts. Gurus. Coaches. There seems to be one for everything and everyone. Their advice often contradicts. The foundation of their expertise can be questionable. Anyone with a mouth and an opinion seems to be giving themselves some sort of title of importance these days. Including me. My legal background and education/regulation required me to do more than hang up a shingle. I sought certification as a coach, I've attended too many seminars and workshops to count, and I have an infinite search for knowledge. Does that mean I know everything? Not a chance. I'm always learning. So who should you listen to? Who should you turn to when you are looking for guidance or feel lost, confused, or frustrated?

The answer isn't me.

It's you.

Every one of us has an immense amount of intuition. My clients often tell me, "I KNOW this! I could do your job!" The truth is, yes, you could! I believe that every single person reading this has the answers within them. What to do, where to go, and who to love. You KNOW when there is a red flag that you breeze past in hopes that this time will be different. You KNOW that you need to break out of your comfort zone to make a change. You KNOW that you deserve more than crumbs.

Experts, gurus, coaches, me. We are only here to help you unearth that intuition, unblock your own walls that keep you from following what you already KNOW, and help along the way by sharing what has worked for others.

We aren't all-knowing. We aren't better than anyone else. We simply have found a way to help you realize that you knew the answers all along. You just needed to turn up the volume.
