This month’s positive point with a couple has to do with the affect the COVID-19 shelter-in-place order has had on them.
They shared with me that because they have been isolated in their home for so long, they’ve noticed their consumption of alcohol has gone up. This was a concern for both of them.
So, we used our coaching session to create a solution sheet (one of the tools people learn in the coaching program) for reducing alcohol consumption.
To start to drink less, they worked together to do the following:
- Brainstorm ideas for solutions.
- Eliminate ideas that weren’t feasible.
- Prioritize those ideas left on the list.
- Attach a timeline to implement their agreed-upon solutions.
I watched this couple tackle a problem that had been a growing concern and now they have a concrete action plan to address it. Bravo!!
