How to Cope with the Internal Baggage of 2020

Let’s be honest, unless you’re a doomsday prepper, you weren’t prepared for 2020. Some of us floated through our rapidly changing realities with grace and ease, and our lives have actually improved remarkably. Some of us have picked up new addictions, and are struggling with isolation and uncertainty, anxiously awaiting rescue in one form or another. Many more of us are stuck somewhere in the middle. 2020 presented us with the opportunity to be with ourselves in a much more confronting way, and noticing that there’s some internal work to do, but not knowing where to start. 

Dealing with the nutty pile of internal baggage 2020 may have uncovered may feel daunting. Learning how to pick through our messy piles of triggers, anxieties, overthinking and negative self-talk and Marie Kondo the psyche is not an easy task. Taking on your inner work alone – especially if it’s the first time you’ve noticed you’ve got an internal mess that needs some tending – might not get you very far very fast.  

Let’s do a quick check-in. Ask yourself the following questions: 

  • Am I a healthier version of myself than before the lockdown? 
  • Have I spent my year numbing myself with distractions, alcohol and food?
  • Have I learned how to prioritize my self-care?
  • Am I kinder and more loving with myself? 
  • Is my inner chatter more loving? 
  • Am I a better version of myself now?

These questions might help you figure out if it’s time to consider investing in actively putting a personal growth coach and support system in place for yourself. One on one coaching offers you time doing some intensive self-reflection and reveals patterns and behaviours that keep you stuck. 

Internal baggage and personal growth

Considering a coach to bring you awareness and assist you in your personal growth is a powerful way to bring change. If you need a helping hand to move through the clutter in your mind, give me a call. I’m here, and happy to powerfully hold space. Arming you with strategies, skills, and deepening your awareness of yourself might be the thing that organizes your mental junk drawer with military precision, and may just be the thing that makes 2021 your most resilient year yet.

Happy New Year!
