THE CIRCLE OF LIFE

In the coaching education that I’m taking, one of the well-known tools that we are using is something called “The Circle of Life”. This is used to determine where in your life you can work on improving your life ✨

In my coaching practice with working 1:1 with people, I’m asking my clients to fill out this thing called “The Circle of Life” a couple of times over our time together.

What is it?

The Circle of Life covers different areas of your life. The idea is that you then look at each area and then you set a dot far into the middle if you’re not feeling satisfied in that area of your life – or far out if you do feel satisfied in that area. In the end you then connect all the dots with lines.

Then you get a clear picture of what areas of your life where there is something that might bother, frustrate, irritate you – which affects your overall health and well-being. Because from the education I’m taking and my point of view, health needs to be looked at from a holistic viewpoint – you can eat all the greens and exercise, but if you do not take care of other areas of your life; career, relationships, finances etc. then you will never reach a point of feeling fully good, happy and content with your life. It all affects your health and well-being.

We will then start working on the area that feel most unsatisfying for you at the moment and together figure out some action steps you can take to feel more satisfied and content within that area.

The point with The Circle of Life is of course never to have a completely perfect circle – no one ever will, because life is not always perfect in all areas of life, but the point is to focus on what’s affecting your health and well-being the most and try to do something about then.

Then over time when you’ve done the exercise over a few months you’ll see how your focus changes and how you have improved in the areas you once did not feel as good about.
