A life coach's tips for living your best life, even after grief

A life coach’s tips for living your best life, even after grief

From being widowed while pregnant and losing her brother to cancer, to being diagnosed with a brain tumour and having to learn to walk again, Rachel Gotto has come out the other side with an eagerness to pass on her tips for living life to the fullest.

Now a qualified life coach, she joined the Jennifer Zamparelli Show to share her hard-won tips.

Gotto says she began turning her life around seven years ago. “I was emerging from a really dark place in my life and I’d been through a lot of trauma”, she says. “There was some spark that arose in me somewhere.”

“I actually woke up and knew that I had enough life under my belt, enough life experience, and I had this calling to give back.”

Rachel felt that her lived experiences were “so powerful” that she could “help other people transform their lives back from literally devastation and loss”.

She started by training to be a hypnotherapist, before adding more teachings to her “toolbox”, which she brings with her to clients. “As each person’s different, it can take a lot of different little skills, hacks, strategies, along with the therapeutic process.”

Gotto says clients come to her specifically “because they know they can trust that I can hold the space for them”.

“Our lives are very important to us and we want somebody who is really there for us, who can listen deeply, who can get us and who can hold that overview over our problems so they can naturally empathise and be compassionate, but look for solutions and hacks unique to each individual person.

Although trained in various therapies, Gotto identifies as a life coach because she sees her role as “open[ing] up possibilities”. She aims to show clients that “they have possibilities, there is a different avenue and literally what’s holding them back are these deep-seated held beliefs”.

These beliefs, she says, are sometimes “the things that sabotage, that rob us, and they rob us of our greatness and that feeling that we can go anywhere”.

As for whether this is something that faces Irish people more than others, Gotto says it’s what challenges many people all over the world.

“We have better days than others and we have little niggling bits that come and go”, she says. “But generally most people have self-esteem issues. We’re very good at hiding what’s underneath the surface, and we’re very good at putting up with our burdens.

“That’s why I think it’s so so important nowadays that we highlight mental health issues. Also that we become more transparent and open about our own struggles, and that’s what I like to do. I’m not perfect, my life isn’t perfect and I’m not fixed. I’m continually trying to fix myself.”

Her first tip is to silence your inner critic. “I don’t think that many people know that between 70 and 80 per cent of our thoughts are naturally negative. They arise out of the mind in a negative fashion”, she says.

Once we recognise that and start challenging what we’re thinking, she says we begin addressing our beliefs.

At the core of our negative beliefs may be lack of confidence, so Gotto suggests taking time to understand where your triggers lie. “You’re giving yourself a little bit of support”, and from there you can start challenging it.

She says that by using the word “stop” to halt those beliefs, you can over time create some space for yourself to “choose a different thought”.

“You’re changing the narrative.”

Downsizing | Ask the Life Coach

Downsizing | Ask the Life Coach

Dear Coach,

I recently sold my large home and this fall, I’m moving to a much smaller condo. As I sift through my belongings, I’m finding it extremely difficult to part with the many precious mementos I’ve accumulated over more than eighty years.

What do I keep, what do I give to charity or sell, what do I give to my children and grandchildren, what do I put in storage?

Do you have any suggestions on how to deal with this dilemma?



Dear Overwhelmed,

Recently, as I was polishing up the manuscript for my soon-to-be-published historical fiction, The Bootmaker’s Wife, I considered the plight of the pioneer housewife as she decided on the few things she would pack in her trunk or wedge into her covered wagon. Your situation isn’t as dire but the analogy is similar.

As you look around your home (I’d suggest taking photos to allow your scrutiny to be less biased), what draws your eyes, what sings to your heart, what have you carefully moved from home to home over the years? I challenge you to think only of yourself (I’m assuming you’re alone), not your children or grandchildren. Don’t let guilt creep in about what was once a gift that you’ve kept over the years “in case Cousin Sally comes to visit.”

My list is fairly short. The walnut, cane-backed rocker that I was rocked in as a baby sits in my bedroom along with a walnut chest made from wood taken from the first Nebraska homestead. The ring that was my mother’s and grandmother’s is always on my hand. The angel that sat atop my first birthday cake is missing a hand but is still on display. My wooden rolling pin was my mother’s and the original art that hung behind my parents when they were married and behind my husband and I when we were married, followed me from home to home.

In addition, there are a few current things I’d take like my newly acquired lemon dishes and some table runners made by a friend who is now gone. I have a collection of paper weights that I’m gradually giving away – I’d save a few. At seventy-seven, I understand your angst. Mementos from the past grow more precious as we age. They are a conduit for intense feelings of love and connection but we must sift through what is most important.

Karen Shinn, a senior move manager and cofounder of Downsizing Diva, a Toronto business that specializes in helping seniors declutter their lives, gives us some suggestions on how to do this. 

  • Start small. Start today. Pick a drawer. Shinn recommends setting a timer for 15 minutes and going through your stuff a bit at a time. 
  • Collect all of your photographs and make notes on the back as to who’s in them. If you don’t know the people in a photo, toss it. Distribute photos to the people in them. 
  • Millennials and Gen X-ers, the children of many people downsizing for retirement right now, would rather collect experiences than stuff. Don’t put something in storage for them. Save the fees and give them the cash to purchase what they want when they want it.
  • Make sure there’s a spot for the furniture you’re thinking of taking to your smaller space. Also, consider your storage space and pack accordingly. That lace tablecloth may have sentimental value but do you have the space to store it? Will you ever use it again?

Finally, I’d advise you to “always use the good stuff.” Don’t save it. Get rid of the old towels, sheets, dishes, placemats, etc. Use the ones you’ve set aside for “special occasions.” This time of your life is “a special occasion.” Get rid of clutter and surround yourself with what you love the most.

Good luck with your move!

How To Stop Being A Perfectionist & The Downsides To Being One

Depending on who you ask, people may consider perfectionism to be a strength or a weakness.

Throughout my time as an excellence-seeking perfectionist (meaning I have a high level of standards for myself and the people in my life), I have found that being perfect isn’t a strength, it’s a weakness.

It’s important to have a reality check with yourself and learn how to stop being a perfectionist — it’s not good for your mental health!

Is perfectionism a mental disorder?

While perfectionism itself isn’t recognized as a mental disorder, people who struggle with perfectionism oftentimes experience comorbid mental health issues. If you’re struggling with anxiety, depression, or eating disorders, perfectionist thoughts could make those illnesses worsen.

The other kind of perfectionists (failure-avoiding) are concerned with their own desire to succeed for fear of not being good enough in the eyes of others.

Perfectionist tendencies can cause you to not be able to achieve your goals, practice negative self-talk, and have too high standards.

How To Process The Death Of Someone Who Negatively Affected Your Life

How To Process The Death Of Someone Who Negatively Affected Your Life

Grief is a process that’s highly personal and unknowable until you’re in it.

And though experts say there’s no right or wrong way to mourn someone, when the person who died is someone you had conflicted feelings about ― say, a toxic parent, or an ex-spouse with whom you begrudgingly co-parented for years ― it’s easy to feel like you’re doing it wrong.

“When this type of grief shows up with clients, they are confused and not sure what to do with how they feel,” said Michelle Chalfant, a licensed therapist and holistic life coach based in Nashville, Tennessee. “They want guidance on how to navigate their emotions — or lack thereof — around the loss.”

Chalfant described a client she once had who came in for help after her abusive, narcissistic mother died. The woman, an only child now in her 40s, had distanced herself from her mom over the years out of self-preservation. Upon her mother’s death, the client felt an odd mix of feelings: sadness because it was her mother who died, but also gratitude that the abuse would cease.

“I have seen children come to funerals who haven’t seen their parents in decades. I’ve tried to convince others to come and just be present, and they refused.”

– Jennifer Kaluzny, a rabbi at Temple Israel in West Bloomfield, Michigan

“She felt ashamed to feel this way and wanted clarity on if she was a ‘bad person’ for, on some level, being happy about the abuse ending,” Chalfant said. “She also needed help processing the death of the relationship she hoped to cultivate with her mom one day.”

More than anything, the woman was looking for validation in her disparate emotions.

“That’s a common theme with people in this type of scenario,” Chalfant said. “They wonder how they ‘should’ be feeling, but the truth is, there is no particular feeling they should feel. It’s unique to each person experiencing grief.”

Jennifer Kaluzny, a rabbi at Temple Israel in West Bloomfield, Michigan, thinks the experience is so difficult because it reopens old wounds ― including some that you may believe have already healed. You may have already worked through trauma that you attribute to your estranged sister, for instance, but now that she’s gone, it crops up again uninvited.

“Unfortunately many families have significant tension or an estrangement,” Kaluzny told HuffPost. “I have seen children come to funerals who haven’t seen their parents in decades. I’ve tried to convince others to come and just be present, and they refused.”

These issues frequently surface when parents die. If abuse, abandonment or extreme favoritism of another child were present in someone’s childhood, a grown child isn’t always looking to honor the person who was the source of that deep hurt.

“Many choose a ritual of their own and perform it surrounded by people who love and support them instead,” Kaluzny said.

It’s important to stay curious and have no preconceived notions about what you think you “should” feel, therapist Michelle Chalfant said.

For those who choose to attend the funeral, though, Kaluzny tells them they can participate — or not — in whatever parts of the service they wish.

I am very open with the families I serve, and I let them know that they can share what they wish, and we can highlight the good, and downplay or not even mention the bad,” she said.

Clearly, this is knotty, complicated stuff. If you’re in this position right now, we have some advice from grief experts like Kaluzny on how to deal with your feelings.

Double up on the self-compassion.

There’s a strong cultural taboo against speaking ill of the dead, largely because they can’t defend themselves. If you feel relief that someone is gone, or you can’t help reflecting on the not-so-wonderful parts about the person, it’s easy to be self-critical.

Instead of doing that, cut yourself some slack, said M. Katherine Shear, a professor of psychiatry at Columbia University and the founding director of the Center for Complicated Grief at the Columbia School of Social Work. It’s really OK to have minimal or absent grief, or even to feel relief when someone who hurt you has died.

“Treat yourself with compassion,” Shear told HuffPost. “Most of us, even those of us who show compassion to others, have a hard time treating ourselves kindly and recognizing that emotional pain is a universal human experience. When we judge ourselves negatively, it only adds to the pain of a difficult experience like this.”

Slow down, breathe and check in with yourself.

When we have unpleasant emotions, we often try to busy ourselves to avoid the feelings. In the immediate moment ― say, after hearing the news of the person’s death ― give yourself permission to feel everything, and slow down and make time for yourself, Chalfant said.

“When we take the time to slow down, emotions tend to rise up, which is a good thing here,” she said. “Deep, slow breathing helps as well. Breath helps to move emotions. If you feel wound up or stressed, go for a walk or just sit quietly and check in with how you are feeling.”

Staying curious, and having no preconceived notions about what you think you should be feeling, is also beneficial when checking in with yourself, she said.

"We need to remember to go at our own pace [with grief], not compare our process to others,” Chalfant said.
“We need to remember to go at our own pace [with grief], not compare our process to others,” Chalfant said.

Don’t compare your grief to other people’s.

While you might not even be sure you want to attend your dad’s funeral, your brother, who dealt with the same haranguing and mean-spirited comments growing up, may be eager to speak at the service ― even reverentially, about the good parts of the man. You have to be OK with that. Grief is personal, and it will do you no favors to compare your grief with someone else’s or judge them for their response, Chalfant said.

“We need to remember to go at our own pace, not compare our process to others,” she said. “Taking care of yourself and tending to your specific needs is always important, but especially when you are tending to the wounds of grief.”

Find a way to express your feelings, like through journaling.

It’s important to find a way to tap into your feelings and thoughts, whether it’s talking to a therapist (here’s a helpful guide on how to find affordable counseling), talking to a close friend, expressing it through a beloved creative hobby, or journaling.

“Journaling can be a gateway into our grief and emotions,” Chalfant said. “When we take a pen to paper and begin to write, our inside feelings are able to move through us and onto paper. It’s very cathartic and an easy tool to use with grief.”

To begin, ask yourself what you’re feeling. If you feel numb, write about it, Chalfant said. If you feel sad, write about it. If it feels like you’re going long on either subject ― dwelling on the good, or dwelling on the bad ― don’t feel like you have to balance it out by writing more about what you “should” feel.

“With journaling, it’s a personal experience, and anything and everything you write is perfect,” Chalfant said. “You can’t get it wrong.”

Journaling can be a particularly cathartic way to deal with complicated grief.

Journaling can be a particularly cathartic way to deal with complicated grief.

Better yet, write a letter to the person you lost.

When working with people in mourning, Kaluzny occasionally suggests they write a letter to their loved one and not send it. Say everything you would have said if they were standing right in front of you, she tells them. This exercise works particularly well if you’re dealing with complicated, seemingly-at-odds emotions.

“Some people say it’s a very cathartic experience,” Kaluzny said.

Be OK with experiencing “absent grief.”

It’s almost always helpful to give a name to something we’re experiencing. What you may be going through right now could be “absent grief.”

According to the American Psychological Association, “absent grief” is a form of “complicated grief in which a person shows no, or only a few, signs of distress about the death of a loved one. This pattern of grief is thought to be an impaired response resulting from denial or avoidance of the emotional realities of the loss.”

With absent grief, the emotional states we (rightly or wrongly) associate with mourning ― denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance ― may never manifest, or may manifest much later on, even years down the line.

“Absent grief is something that I think many people experience over time,” Kaluzny said. “They realize that they can live their life again and it doesn’t hurt so badly ― then, all of a sudden, it strikes when you least expect it.”

Grief is sly that way, she said.

“You could feel fine, even right after the death, and then you are standing at the grocery store and you see your loved one’s favorite ice cream and you fall to your knees in the frozen food section,” Kaluzny said. “It’s entirely normal.”

Talking with your hands is said to make you appear more charismatic and  implies higher levels of energy and attraction. 

Research has shown that people who talk with their hands are seen as warm, passionate, energetic and welcoming, while those don’t use hand gestures are seen as cold and closed off.

One hand gesture that often attracts people is when you have your palms facing up at a 45 degree angle and  your fingers lightly spread apart. 

This hand gesture signifies you’re open and honest, which allows others to gravitate to you more.

Studies have also shown that talking with your hands makes your more liked and encourages people to listen to you more.

Smile authentically and have warm body language 

‘Just enjoying yourself and having a good time makes people come to you like a magnet,’ said the Romanian life coach. 

It’s often said that you are what you attract, in other words what comes to you is a reflection of you.

When you are happy and enjoying your life, people gravitate towards you because they are similar in nature and because they want to be you. 

This carefree attitude brings pulls people towards you and attracts them right away. 

If someone sees you genuinely happy, they can’t help but to pull themselves towards you, in hopes of attracting the same attitude or having someone around them who they can look towards when they struggle to authentically enjoy themselves. 

Try to embrace your own sensual energy

Having sensual energy was her final tip, which meant ‘letting your sexual energy flow’

Although many people think of sex when they hear the words ‘sensual energy,’ it actually plays a role in many aspects of life, not just sex. 

When you learn to accept yourself for you who you are, you begin to create sensual energy. 

This energy evokes powerful emotions and makes you seem more confident, which helps pull people towards you. 

Learning how to create and harness this sensual energy can help you become more creative and tackle big goals and projects.

This level of ambition and success make people gravitate to you and find you more attractive. 

The life coach noted that sensual energy can be built by accepting yourself for the way you are and being genuinely happy. 

The aura that comes along with harnessing sensual energy will cause everyone in the room to never take their eyes off you.

"Show Up Positive" ($15.99) by Rita Ernst is available at Carmichael's Bookstore and Amazon.

Try these 3 tips to ‘Show Up Positive’ and find job satisfaction

Even if you’ve stayed with your current job since the onset of the coronavirus pandemic in 2020, the unprecedented churn in the U.S. labor market over the past two and a half years may have you thinking, “am I happy where I am?”

If so, you’re not alone.

“For the better part of a century, we have accepted whatever terms and conditions companies put in front of us,” said Louisville-based executive coach and organizational psychologist Rita Ernst. “The pandemic threw everything up in the air and gave us the ability to scrutinize our jobs, which we were not doing before, simply out of habit.”

As the nation’s “quit rate” reached a 20-year high last November, experts started referring to the phenomenon as “The Great Resignation.” According to the Pew Research Center, about one-in-five non-retired U.S. adults (19%) — including similar shares of men (18%) and women (20%) — say they quit a job at some point in 2021, meaning they left by choice and not because they were fired, laid off or because a temporary job had ended.

Provided one is on the verge of seeking a Chicago life coach, keep reading to learn about Mr. Frank Corday’s unique approach to helping one find and get in a new direction.

Believe it or not, the ‘New Year’ is not the only time of the year people think about resolutions, goals, and intentions for a better life, and provided one is like many of the people we’ve met, one may not even know where to start when it comes to setting and achieving goals for yourself – whether it be professional, personal, or financial goals.

Or one might be great at planning goals but does not have a successful track record for achieving them.

If this sounds familiar one may want to consider life coaching in Chicago to support one in plotting the future, overcoming your personal challenges, and helping to keep you on track.

It’s no secret that people need support to thrive in life and a life coach can assist and encourage one without passing judgment or feigning interest. Life coaches help one perform at the fullest potential professionally, personally, and financially – such as helping one with relationships, careers, health goals, communication skills, debt, and spirituality.

This Chicago life coach offers the tools necessary for achieving goals.

Part of a life coach’s job will be helping one figure out what has been holding one back or getting in one’s way of success, and then they help one to push past whatever that is.

They are often experienced in overcoming obstacles and achieving results themselves, and they use their learned experience to help others do the same.

Working with a life coach in Chicago,  can be an easy and convenient option because most offer sessions over the phone or online if in-person sessions are not feasible.

At first, your sessions might be more frequent or longer as your coach gets to know you better and you may be asked clarifying questions meant to uncover any hidden information or deep desires before real help is offered to help one clarify goals and set a structured plan in place for achieving those goals.

After some initial progress has been made, one’s sessions might be less frequent whereas life coaching in Chicago, will support one in staying on a path to success, holding one accountable, and giving one an extra push when one needs it.

They will support and celebrate with one, every milestone, no matter how small.

Still not convinced that one should work with a Chicago life coach?

Here are four reasons why one may consider coaching with Mr. Frank Corday:

1. Coaching provides clarity and direction.

The first thing a life coach is going to want to do is better understand what one wants.

Sometimes one may know exactly what one wants in life, and other times no idea.

If one is feeling a sense of unhappiness or dissatisfaction and can’t quite put a name to it, life coaching in Chicago can help.

Clarity involves being clear about who one is and living a life that is meaningful and purposeful.

It means knowing what one wants, why one wants it, and how one can go about getting it.

Life coaching in Chicago is a process that can help one uncover gifts and talents and discover what gives life meaning.

There may be blind spots or hidden gems below the surface that one is unable to uncover alone.

With the help of a coach, clarity and direction can unfold, leading one to a fulfilling, intentionally satisfying life.

2. Life coaching in Chicago helps with goal setting.

Setting personal goals is not always easy, and long-term goals can be particularly difficult to visualize.

One may be used to setting goals in the near term but setting up goals and understanding where one wants to be in the future is extremely valuable. For some people, this can be a daunting and anxiety-inducing task.

Life coaching in Chicago can guide one through the process of setting goals by helping one understand immediate and future wants and needs.

They can provide leading questions that can help one to discover something profound about themselves and what one wants out of life. They can also help one stay organized and make a plan to get results.

Sometimes the hardest part of achieving goals is to make a plan that is realistic and if one’s plan is overly ambitious, one might get discouraged and sideswiped from the journey.

A good Chicago life coach will make sure each step in one’s plan is attainable and specific enough so that one is crystal clear on what is needed to do and by when one needs to do it.

3. Life coaching provides unbiased feedback and support.

Unlike a friend or family member, one’s Chicago life coach is there to help in one’s personal growth journey by giving true and honest feedback, free of any bias.

Chicago life coaching will focus on providing input that will lead to overall goals rather than simply trying to make one feel better (or sway one towards their personal agenda). Their advice will also be backed by relevant professional life experience gained from helping others with similar goals and they will be one’s biggest cheerleaders, celebrating every milestone on one’s journey and firmly putting one back on track when swerved astray.

In the process of utilizing life coaching in Chicago, one will most likely be pushed to learn more about themselves than one would have normally. One will be asked questions one may not have thought of and provide a deeper insight into one’s life and aspirations.

Here are just a few personal areas they can help improve:

  • Work performance
  • Relationships
  • Work-life balance
  • Time management
  • Communication skills

Additionally, by helping one become more successful at meeting goals and sticking to a plan, one will inherently become more confident in oneself and the journey.

4. A Chicago life coach holds one accountable!

Let’s be honest, one might not reach one’s goals as often (or as quickly) as they would like—whether it be because one loses motivation, has trouble prioritizing, has limiting beliefs, or simply gets distracted by the ins and outs of life.

Hiring a life coach will help to ensure one gets back on track if and when one falters or feels a lack of confidence.

Accountability is important to achieving one’s dreams and goals.

It means one is being held responsible for one’s own success and rather than seeing it as a burden or added stress, see accountability as a sense of ownership and pride over one’s life.

When one shares goals out loud with a life coach, one will be held accountable for the goals and are more likely to make them a priority and achieve the goals, so they don’t let their accountability partner down.

Whatever one’s reason for choosing to work with a Chicago life coach, consider working with Life Coach, Frank Corday!

Jewel Knows the Tide of Mental Health Will Always Come Back In: Podcast

Jewel Knows the Tide of Mental Health Will Always Come Back In: Podcast

Jewel joins the Going There podcast to discuss her personal mental health journey and how she learned to except the changing tides of wellness.

The iconic singer-songwriter shares that the cornerstone of her approach to mental health is what she calls the concept of emotional impermanence. Jewel explains that one of the most difficult issues we face on our mental health journey is that oftentimes when we experience depression, anxiety, or addiction, there is such a powerful feeling that our emotions and behaviors are permanent. But her concept of “emotional impermanence” suggests that we are dynamic and ever changing, and that means that our emotions and behaviors can ultimately change as well.

The Freewheelin’ Woman performer shares a childhood story where she watched the ocean, and seeing the tide go out, knew that at some point it could come back in. She used this as a metaphor and inspiration to break free of the hopeless she felt when dealing with anxiousness and depression. Jewel talks about “buckling herself in” to try and weather the difficult times, becoming curious about what she can learn from her emotions and behaviors rather than just trying to avoid or suppress her experience.

Jewel assures us that it is okay if we struggle — that “all of our hearts are destined to be broken.” But if we are curious rather than critical about these difficulties, we may not always feel better, but more often than not, we will learn about ourselves. Rather than constantly feeling defeated, we will remember that the tide always comes back in, and that we can continue to grown on our mental health journey.
