How are we coping with anxiety today?
For the past few weeks, I’ve been asking this question many times a day to people from all walks of life. Their answers are always different. Yet, they come from the same place of despair and worry that life coaches are calling coronavirus anxiety.
Let’s admit it.
None of us thought that an invisible virus would be the breaking point of society as we know it. Yet, here we are stuck at home.
As a life coach (and former addict), I have seen what a chaotic mind looks like and how it works. My work allows me to support others during testing times through coping strategies and goal-oriented plans. I’m using my time to reach out and coach as many clients as possible. It is my way of giving back to humanity that is collectively grieving.
Here’s an insight into what the benefits of virtual coaching look like during the pandemic:
Coping with Anxiety: How Does Virtual Life Coaching Work?
Many of us are caught in a limbo. We are stuck at home facing endless hours of isolation and despair. Others put a brave face on to attend zoom meetings and juggle homeschooling with professional life. The uncertainty of the situation makes coping with anxiety rather hard.
With a life coach by your side, you could find a way out of this mess. The virtual life coaching format means that you’ll always have someone guide you through during the low points in the pandemic. They could help you refocus, restart, and tackle the obstacles that life throws at you, one session at a time.
Also, one of the major benefits of life coaching is that it is flexible. You can vent, rant, and chat with your life coach via instant messages, video calls, and emails. That way, you get to keep in touch in between the weekly sessions.
Think of it as having a wise friend who gives you that much-needed pep talk.
