Live Healthy – Clarify Your Values
Have you ever felt you wanted to clarify your values to live healthy? I never did either! When I first took Life Coaching many years ago learning how to clarify values was a very powerful process for me. I can tell you it was truly life changing. Prior to coaching I had never heard of values. My life at that time was frustrating and not very fulfilling. In this section of the course it was that light bulb moment. I was struggling with life andby realizing my core values it was time for me to begin to live healthy! Here is a step by step plan, how to clarify your values to live healthy.
You see, living in a way to honor your values is very powerful. Today I will share with you the way I was able to Clarify my values. If you set aside some time, an hour would be an excellent start you can do this. Why would you want to take the time to clarify your values to live healthy? Living your values makes your heart sing! Living your values allows you to honor you at a core level. When I learned what my core values are it changed everything when it came to my health and for that I am very grateful.
Clarify your values?
Here are the steps to Clarify your values. Now remember your values are the intangible. They are not morals and they are not learned as a youngster. You don’t decide what your values are you discover them! There is no need to judge and feel that you must have certain values to be accepted. Your values empower you to live your true self.
Step 1: Take a look at a time in your life when life was really great, an experience you had…remember the memories are a time when a value was being honored.
Step 2: Take a look at a time when you were more upset or angry. What feelings were caused by this situation. Look deeper at those feelings and you will see the values that was being suppressed.
Step 3: As you go through this process you may uncover that some of your values are not being honored in your life! When that value is honored life is magical.
Step 4: Now that you’ve begun to create a list of your values imagine a situation where it is not possible to honor that value! The level of “craziness” will show you how important that value is in your life.
Step 5: Take a look at what you MUST have in life beyond food, clothes housing and so on here you will find the value
As you clarify your values find 10-20 values from the work you have done in steps 1-5. Prioritize the top 10. Please remember your “values” show up in life over time. And sometimes values expand for example – you may have a core value of health and over time you might find that your core value is health/vitality/fun to truly honor your core value!
Now evaluate how fully you are honoring those top 10 values in your life today from a scale of 1-10. Now look at what you must do to live the top 10 values at a 10?
And remember that honoring your values isn’t easy however working toward honoring your values allows you now be more “true to self!”
As you clarify your values and see what you must do to live each of these at a 10 you begin to feel what “true to yourself” is and can now make choices and decisions that are aligned with who you are rather than living in the “should’s”.
By doing this work you now are able to live your best life! By going through the process to clarify your values to live healthy will allow you to do things you never have for you!
