Action Planning

“The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change.”
― Carl Rogers, Ph.D.


Unable to cope with your many layers? Wondering how to get back the life you once had? Start “peeling the onion”…

For every step you become more aware, define an action plan:


Action Plan

o Recognize you can’t do it alone

Reach out for help

o Be willing to invest time in yourself

Schedule time for you!

o You already embody aspects of the life you yearn for

Identify your core strengths

o Learn ways to calm the stress response

Learn and practice mindfulness

o Develop a vision for the new person you can become

Ensure the beliefs you hold are healthy

o Build your NEW YOU in YOUR world!

Connect your vision of yourself to others
