Creating A Healthy Lifestyle in the New Year for Autism Parents

A new year can represent hope for families. New Year’s Resolutions. Creating intentions. Manifesting. Coaching creates space for a healthy lifestyle of action and success.

The future might feel bright with possibility. A new year often feels like a turning point and opportunity for a fresh start. What would you like to be different for you? Conversely what will life look like in a few years if you don’t make some changes?

Envision an ideal day, say six months from now. Consider how to get there. Very often the smallest steps create a positive impact. For parents of Autism and Asperger, a big change might feel formiable, whereas well planned tiny shifts are doable.

Taking action is the key and a most important step for change that leads to a healthy lifestyle while parenting a student or adult with challenges or who is dependent on you. Sometimes we need to leave something behind so we can make more room for the healthy lifestyle we envision. 

What is something new you would like to make room for that will support your health and well-being?

Staying Mindful And Focused on What you Need More Of

Are you a person who likes to make New Year’s Resolutions? Perhaps you shop for a calendar or a new pretty journal and the now empty pages of January represent what might be and what will become. And, at the end of the year, 12 months from now, what would you like to see on the pages of your calendar? What about the year to come is within your control?

Do you have time to lie on your yoga mat and consider an intention?

What does setting an intention mean to you? Some focus their energy toward positive affirmations or meditation. For yoga that many find to be satisfying and legit, you might enjoy this studio and virtual practice opportunity. Owner Theresa Curameng recently reminded me. “You can steer your intention by building a foundation of daily work towards it. This thoughtful, continuous effort will allow the intention to come to life.”

How about manifesting? Do you like to use your thoughts or feelings to bring something into reality? Do you practice aspirational thoughts and intentional actions toward something becoming real? Oprah speaks on the topic.

Lucie Hautruex founder of Date Your Finances is known for supporting women to become intentional with their business finances as one component of their overall health and well-being. Lucie reminds her clients, “Planning with action is required.”

Maybe you just like to wing it! Life tends to work out for you. Or, even more likely as a parent of Autism or other challenges with your teen or adult, maybe life feels out of control and too difficult to even plan for. Coaching for Health and Well-Being can accommodate your style and whatever you are facing. Coaching is for both planners and those who saying planning is not their thing. It is for those who dare to dream and for those who hang back in fear of more overwhelm.

New Year’s Resolutions. Setting Intentions. Manifesting. Wing it.

What words or phrases resonate with you when considering change or growth or a fresh start in some area of life?

That’s the beauty of coaching. It’s about your goals and your style to get there, whether a resolution or an intention or manifesting or going with the flow. The expected and the unexpected.

What will the new year bring for you? There are things we don’t know. None of us can predict the future. It is in our power to plan and act with intentionality each day so we can move forward, living more fully in what we know about ourselves, toward our real and true.

I would be honored to be a part of your journey in the months ahead. Together, we are jars of clay, earthen vessels. Walking along, sharing the planet, all on a journey together.

Remember: Life doesn’t have to be perfect to be wonderful.
