My word for 2023: BEING
Have you chosen your word for 2023 yet? If you have never done this, you should start! It’s always a great reflection exercise where you get to think what you want to focus on, how you want to stay motivated, or if you want to align yourself with one of your values. The word you choose becomes your guiding light throughout the year, and it can guide you while you work on your goals. It can also help you remember what is important whenever you find yourself stuck or hitting an obstacle in your life.
As a holistic life coach, my focus is on the whole individual: physical, mental/emotional, and spiritual. When I work with clients, I take different factors into account since our bodies have interconnected systems, and our daily life can influence many of them simultaneously. This is the concept of epigenetics (the impact of our lifestyle choices on gene expression) which is one of the modalities in my coaching practice.
I always check on my clients’ lifestyle habits: what they’re eating and when, how much water they’re drinking, how often they’re moving their body, their sleep patterns, their stress levels, how much time they dedicate to themselves, their mental health, if they have support from a community, etc. Then, I help them reframe their priorities and optimize their natural resources to rebalance different areas with customized lifestyle changes. By doing so, they shift from “human doings” to “human beings.” As a result, they become more successful in their profession, they make quality time with their families and friends, they boost their happiness, and they feel better.
This is why I chose BEING as the word of 2023. “Being” is an important aspect of our life; we are human beings, not human doings. We can accomplish more when we optimize our inner resources. We can achieve better goals when we slow down, and we look inward. We can become more aware of the abundance and blessings in our lives. We can improve our well-being when we are more present and experience our life fully. Being is the essence of life and success, happiness and satisfaction, not only for ourselves but also for those around us. In 2023, I hope I will be able to inspire each of you by BEING a little more.
