If you had your own personal coach, what would you want them to say to you?
Write the words, colour them in, and make a speech bubble. Next, display it on your very own couch. Share a photo with us. If you want to, you can also write a mini-blog here of your conversation with your couch coach.
Check out our August Mums' Make Date when we made Couch Coaches together.
Have a quick lie-down on your sofa and think about the voice you need to hear most right now. Is it an Olympic-style motivator? A life-coach helping you follow your dreams? Or are you secretly wishing you were lying on a friendly psychiatrist's couch...?
Imagine there's someone there whose sole motivation is to help you be the best you can be. What words do you most need to hear today?
Get off the couch and write that sentence down. Go with your guts. Write them carefully, colour them in. Make it look fabulous. Then cut it into the shape of a speech bubble. Yes, your couch is coaching you.
Take a photograph. Load your photo up to the gallery by clicking on 'join in' above. In the text box, write a mini-blog in the voice of your Couch Coach - a monologue, a conversation, whatever you like. Or leave it blank and we'll assume a peaceful silence.
Then stick your speech bubble somewhere the words will spur you on every day.
You can WIN a prize just for loading up your picture: In August, we're giving away a coaching session with Kirsten of Mum and More. The rules of the competition are here. If you share your photo here in August, you're automatically entered, so just let us know if you don't want to be.
