In today’s highly competitive and stressful world, it is important to manage our mental and physical fitness equally. Most of us follow our favourite physical fitness coach to maintain good health. Allow me to discuss something about a professionally trained life coach who help us managing our emotions, mental states and levels of motivation. “If you believe something is right, there should not be any struggle in accomplishing it. One must overcome the inherent fears to proceed with absolute clarity. As a life coach and trainer, my vision is to awaken the achiever in each one of us.” Says Meena, Founder, “Insights”.
A Life Coach
A life coach help you make progress to attain a sense of accomplishment. It is effective in improving relationships, careers and your everyday life in general. An experienced life coach can help in number of ways like:
• Clarity in identification of your goals in life
• identify your unique skills and strengths
• recognize fears, anxieties and reasons for procrastination
• understand the obstacles which are holding you back
• formulate strategies for overcoming each obstacle.
Therefore, a Life coach is not necessarily a mental health professional. The reason to visit a wellness Coach, may not always be mental stress, anxiety, depression or any such maladies. It is OK to visit a coach if you want to break free from your addiction or a bad habit, even better if you simply want to live and figure out meaningful, and happier life. A trained coach can help you take your creativity to a next level. You may be looking forward to improve decision making, negotiation and conflict management skills.

Human behaviour has always been an area of great interest to her. The environment of Defence forces gave her ample opportunities to be a successful team leader. This paved a way for her deep interest in psychology. After completion of her service tenure with the Indian Air Force, she decided to devote herself into simplifying the lives of people through coaching and counselling.

Neuro-Linguistic Programming or NLP
Neuro-Linguistic Programming or NLP is an effective & ingenious tool to create synergy amongst our thoughts (neuro i.e., brain), our communication (linguistic) and behavioural patterns (programming) for a fulfilling and happy life. Neuro-linguistic programming was developed in the 1970s at the University of California. Its primary founders are John Grinder, a linguist, and Richard Bandler, an information scientist and mathematician. It is about how to regulate your thinking , feeling, language and behaviour to achieve transformation.
“NLP works on the premise that the human brain functions like a computer, which executes ‘programmes’ or mental strategies in specific sequences of instructions and internal representations. NLP techniques focus on the thought processes that influence our behaviour. It identifies the mental strategies a person is using in certain situations or habitually. Through various exercises and visualizations, it further provides resolutions to control, fade out or enhance the experiences behind those habits and emotions.”
“NLP is an experiential approach. It is not hypnotherapy. rather, it operates through the conscious use of language to achieve changes in someone’s thoughts and behaviour. It is extremely helpful in enhancing creative thinking and problem solving skills. Visualization is a very powerful technique that can also be a part of many of the NLP techniques in some way or the other. The simple principle that works here is that our mind considers imagination as the truth. The technique is to imagine a desired goal or outcome with complete focus and affirmation. This triggers the law of attraction and motivates us towards our destination.” Explains Meena.
