Loving and Enjoying Your Peeps
Can I ask you a tough question? What was it like being isolated with your family during the lockdown? If you discovered that your household is a war zone and your marriage is on life support, improving your family relationships should be a major priority in 2021. Maybe even your first priority. My husband and I did exceedingly well during our quarantine, but it wasn't without work. We've spent a lot of time over the last few years working hard on our relationship and it paid off during quarantine. I know others weren't as lucky.

You CAN eliminate stress, create better boundaries, and bring more balance to your family life. I know it because we've done it. We still have relationships to work on, but things are as good as they've ever been and it's a joy to be where we are now!

But first, let’s figure out where you are. It’s the first step to creating a plan for improving your future.

On a scale of 1 to 10, how would you rate your family relationships? If you answer “1,” that means low/bad/least true, while answering “10” means “high/good/most true”:

•. I would rate my current family situation......... ____
•. We eat at least one meal per day together as a family.................................... ____
•. My immediate and extended family is functional.... ____
•. Thinking of family makes me feel happy......... ____
•. I am honest with my family members............ ____
•. I work hard at being a better family member... ____
•. I set aside personal time with my family without phones......................................... ____
•. My family is loving, patient, supportive and respectful.......____
•. I hold no hurt feelings toward any family members......................................... ____
•. I feel I spend enough time with my family to meet their needs...................... ____

When I first read the book Oola: Finding Balance in an Unbalanced Worldits authors—Dr. Dave Braun and Dr. Troy Amdahl—recommended strategies for improving family life. “Family” is one of The 7 F’s of Oola: a proven formula for living a life of less stress, more balance and greater purpose.

As a Certified Oola Life Coach, I help clients not only create goals across all 7 areas of life, but also prioritize their tasks and—most importantly—stay accountable to accomplishing them week by week. In fact, I’ve joined forces with Dave and Troy to bring my followers the Oola formula via a 10-week coaching experience designed to transform your life, your finances, your relationships and more. Message me and we can jump on a call about it.
