November is coming up and once again we are facing Diabetes Awareness Month. I once asked a person with diabetes what they do in November and they looked at me rather strangely. I was told that every month is Diabetes Awareness month in their world! So very true!!
Despite that, I still try to give an extra push to politicians and do some added awareness "stuff" during the month. The month is only a few days away and while there are many great ideas floating in my head, including how to make use the US JDRF's Diabetes for a Day campaign, I have nothing concrete planned yet.
I have however come up with something that I am hoping will help some people who are living with diabetes--be it parents or people who struggle with the disease. "Finding your Diabetes Balance" involves four intense diabetes coaching sessions offered by me during the month of November for those who feel overwhelmed by the disease. There will be no further commitment required besides once a week for the month of November but the sessions will be intense and require your full effort.
We will begin with looking at how diabetes has impacted various aspects of your life. We will work together to figure out where it is hurting you the most and allow you to dream about where you would ideally like things to be in the near future. You will then be given some homework to prepare for the second week's session.
In week two we will create an action plan. We will see what has stopped you from reaching your goals in the past and look at the tools and resources you have to be a success this time around.
By week three we are halfway there! At this point you will be given an affirmation to help you relearn old habits and provide you with the encouragement to go forward. Together we will discuss changing your perspective to allow new and more positive thoughts to become part of your frame of reference.
For our final session, we will create a 90 day plan for you. You will now have a clear idea of how to move forward and we will work to see that you can succeed.*
This will bring you into December with clear goals and ready to tackle the holiday season and the new year with renewed enthusiasm! Better still, for the month of November, and for people who have diabetes living with them only, these sessions will be offered at four sessions for the price of three! So you will be able to begin to get things on track and save money for the holidays at the same time!
Remember that you do not need to go to an office or leave the comfort of your own home for coaching sessions. They can be done via telephone or through Skype with the same effectiveness. If you are interested in this offer or know someone else who could benefit, please contact me or pass the information along!
*Please note that Life Coaching sessions usually take place over the course of three months. This is a brief guide to help you move forward. Should you wish to continue with my services beyond this intense one month introduction, continued pricing will be discussed at that time.
