Has anyone ever thought about seeking out a life coach? These last few months have been extremely stressful for me. I have too many looming deadlines, too many demands to meet and each one is dependent on the other. Some of these choices will directly affect my future and even though it’s clear I have some critical decisions to make, I feel frozen. Stuck. Unsure. Out of control. I know I shouldn’t be complaining because many others have faced serious decisions in their life as well, but man I feel like the mental house I am living in is getting smaller and smaller by the minute… and soon I won’t have any place to go. My mind is filled with so many to-do lists, and
action (non action) plans… I’m freaking out.

What Is a Life Coach?
Just about everyone has a vision of his or her ideal life. Maybe you’ve always dreamed of becoming a successful writer, musician, or corporate executive. Yet your vision hasn’t quite made the leap from your mind to reality.
That’s where a life coach steps in. Life coaches provide the incentive and direction their clients need to improve their careers, relationships, and lives. They help clients to:
- Hone in on their skills and ambitions.
- Refocus their life’s goals.
- Overcome obstacles that stand in the way of achieving goals.
Why Would I Need a Personal Life Coach or Wellness Coach?
There are a variety of reasons that people turn to life or wellness coaches for help. For instance, you might consider looking for a coach if you:
- Need some guidance on moving forward in your career
- Want to learn how to best take advantage of strengths and talents
- Don’t know what to do about a major life decision, such as a move or promotion
- Don’t have an acceptable work-life balance
- Are overstressed
- Aren’t as healthy as you’d like to be.
