Basic Coaching Exercise

If you are in a difficult situation or facing a dilemma then you may find it helpful to do the following basic life coaching exercise:

1. Write down a list of what your options are in the situation.
2. For each option write down the pros (advantages) and cons (disadvantages) of that option.
3. Reflect on the pros and cons of the different options and decide which one is the one that you are going to pursue in the light of your analysis.

If you are unsure about what your options are or about their respective merits or you find it difficult to act on the option that you believe is best then it may be worth seeking views from others who have been in similar situations and worked through them successfully.

Fear of Finding Out about Your Health

Recently there has been some research done into the phenomenon of people putting off going to see their doctor when they are experiencing symptoms of a potential health problem because of fear of finding out (otherwise known as FOFO) and the treatment/consequences that might entail. The major downside to this is that if you put off going to GP by the time you do go, your illness or condition may be much worse and harder to treat.

So the moral is: If you think there might be something wrong with your health, go to see your doctor.

For an article about this in the British Medical Journal, please click on the link below:
