Sometimes you gotta stop putting things off and just start somewhere.
It has been a really exciting week for me, I am putting the finishing touches to my new holistic life coaching program and 1:1 holistic coaching which I will be releasing next week, so keep an eye out on my Insta for more details…
Coaching women is something which is so incredibly powerful, and I feel so lucky to get to work with amazing women and see their transformation. I have so many ideas about where I want to take Clove+Clay, how I want to connect coaching with my love for designing for well-being, that sometimes my brain goes into overdrive. And that's exactly what happened earlier this week - I just didn’t know where to start.

So I practiced what I preach, I booked in for a session with brilliant advocate for women and fantastic life coach Lulu Minns. Once I had invested in this time with Lulu, I felt a renewed sense of motivation, ready to sit down and get my ideas on paper. To keep focused and driven, I also made sure to incorporate movement, mediation and nature into each day and now the procrastination has passed and been replaced with excitement, purpose and positive energy.

I think we are all guilty of dabbling in a spot of dilly dallying, and this can be for a number of reasons. Perhaps, like me, you have a ton of ideas and aren’t sure where to start, maybe you have a fear of getting it wrong, you’re scared of the process or maybe it’s something which could result in rejection and vulnerability. But the task isn’t going anywhere, so you just have to start somewhere.

My 3 Step Process to Starting Somewhere
1 The Why
Get clear on why you are putting the task off. Check in with your body, your emotions; what is this task bringing up for you. Then start to shift your mindset around it – how can you form a more useful relationship with this task?
Get clear on why you are putting the task off.
2 The How
Identify exactly what is needed to get this task done. Break the task down and create a list with all the details. Does the task need some pre-planning? How long will the task take? How will you keep yourself accountable to get the task done? Ensure you are clear on all the details. Imagine yourself ticking off the final thing on your list, how do you feel?

3 The Do
It’s time to get going. If you find it hard to concentrate on one thing for a long time frame, then try just doing the first thing on the list, tick it off and check in to see how it feels. If you feel the momentum, then go for it!

And remember to be mindful, add movement, and connect with nature wherever you can.
