As we enter a new year, many of us feel the urge to catch up on everything we missed the year before. We fill our schedules to the brim and try to establish ten new habits at once. But often, our minds become cluttered with excuses and opinions, leaving us feeling overwhelmed and drained.
Communication Coach Rachel Randolph advises us to pause and look inwards. It’s time to reflect on what overwhelms us, establish boundaries, and understand our inner voice. This is the first step towards achieving our goals.
Rachel suggests taking a moment to observe the space between a situation and our reaction. By identifying our thoughts, we can determine what’s holding us back and learn to communicate more effectively. Rachel teaches her clients the skill of self-regulation to help them cope with their inner dialogue.
The first step towards self-regulation is to understand our inner voice and how it affects our emotions. By writing down our thoughts, we can gain clarity and better navigate emotional triggers. Rachel also teaches her clients a breathwork technique called “box breathing” to calm their minds and regulate their nervous system.
The last step is to maintain this practice consistently. Rachel holds her clients accountable for implementing self-regulation daily and provides ongoing support and guidance to help them improve their communication skills.
Rachel’s coaching approach is unique in that she empowers her clients to take responsibility for their communication skills through introspection, self-awareness, and self-agency. By slowing down and making small, deliberate decisions, we can transform our communication skills and take control of our lives.
About Rachel Randolph: Rachel has worked with dozens of clients from around the world over the past four years, helping them hone their communication skills and achieve their goals. She believes that taking responsibility for our communication skills is taking responsibility for our lives.
