The new way to strive is to create total alignment of all that matters in your life. That way you’re not delaying happiness to the future but living with happiness while still getting results. In fact I’ve experienceboth and I can say being in alignment produces better results. When you feel in alignment you will work a lot smarter, seeing things from a bigger perspective and produce better results.

The Peace Room’s private 1-on-1 life coaching program focuses on 5 areas:

1. Emotions
Emotions like anger, jealousy and fear are primal and if you let them control you, it will lead to a lot of suffering. The good news is that we’ve evolved and can rise above them. We can acknowledge their presence, we can express them, we can use them creatively, we can choose not to cling to them. Pain is inevitable, but suffering is optional.

2. Health
We are meant to move. When we are inactive our brain chemistry starts to change – serotonin takes a dip. That’s why exercise is such a good antidepressant. The type of exercise you choose is less important than how consistent you are in getting daily exercise. You also need to eat real food and stop filling yourself with junk every chance you get. The temptations will always be there and things need to shift internally for you to have the capacity to avoid them. Sugar is like a drug so you can’t be stupid about it. And finally you also need to sleep and find time to relax.

3. Relationship
Relationships are such an important part of what creates joy in our life. Working out the dynamics of your relationships can be hugely valuable.

4. Financial
We live in a capitalist system where we need to make money to survive. That means when money is low, stress rises and impacts other aspects of our life. It helps to have the knowledge and the confidence to produce it on your own.

5. Time
You can make a lot of money but if your time is constantly tied up working, other parts of your life will suffer. Avoid the trap. Instead of grinding yourself into the ground, it’s better to set habits and limits on your time to make sure you spend time enjoying what you are working for. Surprisingly you will find that the results don’t diminish, they get better.
