One night, after Kris and I led a life coaching call, we sat down thinking that the advice and insight we had just shared was not all that specific to the person we coached. People have unique issues, but they fall into the same categories:
-lacking time and energy
-not knowing where to start or where to go next
-feeling overwhelmed, helpless and depressed
-worrying what friends and family think
-afraid of failure and change
The individual things we struggle with in our day to day lives are just indications of deeper issues we need to address, shift, and heal. Some common examples are:
-Absence of community
-Clutter: physical and emotional
-Struggles with jealousy in friendships and intimate relationships
-Lack of transparency and authenticity
-Overwhelmed by financial responsibility
-Days spent "going thru the motions"
-Broken or non existent relationship with mindfulness/spirituality/religion
-Irregular or absent physical movement practice
-Overrun with guilt, shame, and obligation
-Distorted relationship with sexuality and sexual health
-Poor communication skills, trouble expressing yourself
-Disconnected relationship with food
-Unhealthy connections with friends and family
These issues stem largely from being programmed since birth. Most of us were shuffled through the public school system where we received an education and were taught to be on time, meet deadlines, follow rules and respect authority figures. This translates perfectly into the corporate world for work, where most of us end up next (with our student loan debt in tow).
Our life is suddenly a series of unconscious choices - we’re just doing what everybody else is doing. We know little about our health, our bodies, the food we eat, or preventative care. We maybe loosely follow the food pyramid, but mostly we just eat whatever, go to the doctor for some antibiotics when we’re sick, and accept “getting older” as the reason for weight gain, wrinkles, lower sex drive and insert-any-other-common-ailment-here.
We find someone nice to marry, though we couldn’t tell you why we’re doing it. We haven’t received any proper sex education or had good examples of healthy relationships. We have babies at the nearest hospital with whatever obstetrician our insurance covers. We work, work, work, save, save, save, take our two weeks (if that) of vacation every year, “retire”, and enjoy our golden years.
There’s more to life than this. And you know that - why else would you be here?
Since the same advice could be applied to many - we realized that giving this information one person at a time wasn't a very efficient way to go about it.
Enter: Reality Rehab - The E-Course
It is a self-paced, 19 module course that covers everything from sex education to eliminating clutter to healthy eating to lowering your overhead to smart car ownership to preventative health care, and oh so much more.
For those who are curious - we've created a preview version of the course. It is the free, five-day email course you have signed up for. Over the next five days, we'll cover:
