One of my favourite tools is the coaching wheel. It allows us to evaluate and rate how satisfied and happy are we across different areas of our life. Recently, I adapted this tool to include the seven pillars of wellbeing I work with my clients online.
I find it very useful because I’m a visual and kinesthetic type of learner so I love to build and get something I can look at to help me think and reflect. The template I am using asks me to think about seven areas and rate them from 1 to 7 with one meaning I’m not satisfied at all and seven that I’m very much satisfied with my results in that specific area of my life.
Once I conclude the ratings and the colouring in, I can then take a closer look at each slice of my wheel and get a better understanding of where I’m thriving and where I’m not doing so well at the moment. I use it as a guide to know where I should be looking next and pay more attention to it so that I can take proper action.
This is an exercise that is holistic in nature because it requires us to look into different areas of our lives and think of the multiple dimensions that contribute to our overall wellbeing. If we are not feeling so good and there is one or more areas in which we are not doing so well then we may use the information as a clue for further action.
If you want to give it a try, you can download my free Wellbeing Wheel from the shop. I personally use it on my tablet and edit it from there. I do this because it’s less expensive and more eco-friendly. I love going old school though and you can definitely print it out to colour it in.
