Why are Life Coaches Important?

Why are Life Coaches Important?

I often hear people talk about how therapists, life coaches, or self improvement are for “those types of people.” And when I was younger, I used to think that I never wanted to be the “type” of person that needed another in order to help them heal. I wanted to be an island onto myself that never needed anyone or anything. Until I realized a very interesting fact. Did you know that as humans we cannot crack our own backs? It is physically impossible to crack our own backs without the help of another person. This is the moment I realized that my job was not to live alone but to live in community.

I don’t know if its the rejuvenation I feel when I dive into a pool, or the inherent refreshing feeling, or that there is always some healing associated with water especially when it occurs in natural pools. I will drive like 4 hours just to try out a new hot spring so this one seems like a no brainer.

I think part of what draws me to this Auston swimming hole is the idea that you could find healing in the middle of a city. Sometimes when I am wondering around a city and I am feeling over whelmed or temperamental I try and find a fountain just to be by flowing water. It always amazes me how much better I feel […]
