Aspects of Well-Being, Part 10 – The Finale

Self-experimentation. This entire series, when boiled down to its essence, revolves around the idea of self-experimenting. Yet this post is also the shortest entry. Self-experimentation is not as scary, or for that matter creepy, as it sounds. It’s simply how you figure out what works for you. I mean, this seems so intuitive doesn’t it? …

Aspects of Well-Being, Part 9

Routines. Kind of broad and all encompassing, huh? I mean, all of the previous 8 parts of this series could be said to reduce down to “change your routine.” And that’s true. What I want to cover here is the broader idea of having a routine and how it can help with behavior and habit …

Aspects of Well-Being, Part 8

Sleep. Seems like a topic without much controversy, right? I mean, we all know how to sleep…right? Many of us in western societies have more dysfunction in this area than you might think.

Stress. The word alone can cause, well, stress for a lot of folks. I’m not going to tell you 10 ways to eliminate stress from your life, or how this simple method will help you…whatever. The reality is, stress happens. What matters is how you deal with that stress – both when it’s happening and …

Aspects of Well-Being, Part 3

In the last installment of my Aspects of Well-being series, we looked at general tips for keeping interactions between coworkers calm and on point. This week I’d like to touch on another important aspect of well-being and office life – Ergonomics. This is perhaps the most controversial topic in this series. Not because anyone would …

Aspects of Well-Being, Part 1

The single most common question I get – by far – is “so what is wellness coaching?” And while I know I have a short definition up on the appropriately named “what is…” page, I want to go a little deeper. First a note about word choice: I’m fond of using the phrase ‘well-being’ rather …
