How do you feel when your life is out of balance?

What are the signs of your life being out of Balance? Here are 7 key areas to look for tells in your life. They cross all areas of your life from work to relationships. How do you react to interruptions? How do you bench mark how well you are doing in yourself? How well do you eat? What is your personal self-worth? How many people truly ask these questions of themselves?

1: The control tell: The easiest way to think about how you feel is how little it takes to tip the scales. You feel emotional, stressed, overwhelmed all the time. This can lead to an unhealthy need to control yourself or others in a desperate need to readdress the balance.

2: The interruption tell: You have a lack of tolerance and patience. The smallest things push you over the edge in an unreasonable overreaction for the level of the challenge. You can also have a lack of tolerance for noise and interruptions. Do you lose it with people in your work or home environment easily?

3: Looking outside tell: There is a constant feeling of being overwhelmed and not knowing where or how to start tasks. Do you always feel as if there is a task hanging over you? You can find it very hard to know what others expect from you. You find yourself constantly seeking validation from others to see if you are doing well enough. You can find your perfectionism crippling. Unable to start tasks in case they are not done well enough.

4: Fitness and diet tell: You either don't do enough exercise or be come obsessed with too much. You control your food and don't have good sleeping patterns. You are always tired and can't get out of bed in the mornings. You wonder "what does sunrise look like" - you never see it! The alarm goes off 10 times in the mornings.

5: The wrong key tell: You feel displaced and opportunities don't seem to arrive or never quite fit to work out. You are always blaming fate. The wrong set of circumstances for you. Besides not being promoted in jobs you can find that you are endlessly looking for a new fit, you never quite settle anywhere. You are constantly upskilling to feel whole. Will the next course fill the void?

6: Relationship tell: You can suddenly withdraw from people and relationships. Ending relationships suddenly without clear thought. Have you stopped talking to your family? Do you seem to have displaced friends from your life recently? Do you just feel disconnected from everyone around you?

7: The searching tell: You are constantly searching to fit in and belong somewhere. Never found anyone that truly gets you. This can lead to an obsession in self-analysis. What's wrong with me? This can become a serial self-help or development search. Do you join many different groups and never stick at any one of them for any length of time?

If these are the tells what are the fixes? How do you counter balance yourself? There are three simple factors;

1: You need to understand your strengths and weaknesses.

2: You need to find a way to express what it really is you want to achieve in life. Set goals.

3: You need to know how to fulfill your dreams or the steps to make them happen. Try to create a road map of realistic steps to these goals for yourself.

Why do the people who come to me crave more balance in their lives? Many people would assume that the aspirations are materialistic. The goals of a new car, a bigger house or to earn more money. It's not that many of these achievements do not happen with greater balance but generally there are 7 key mindsets that people seek.

These are;

1: Happiness is the most important element.

2: Confidence is also a top priority.

3: People strive for self-worth.

4: Respect is huge, both at home and in the workplace.

5: Greater work-life balance. To not always feel tired and jaded.

6: Quality time to spend with the people who matter in their lives and for the other interests in life.

7: Better relationships with partners, children, family and work colleagues.

Everyone that comes to me uses the phrase to me that "they are at cross roads in their life". They want me to siphon their dreams out of them, that have often been forgotten along the way. But most importantly they want a road map of how to get to where they want to be, "I now have a way of moving forward to achieve what I am capable of in life and doing what will make me happier". I always say start with steps. No matter how small they are steps in the right direction. Take control in a positive way. I don't ever tell anyone anything that they don't tell me already knew inside themselves, "Dr. O'Reilly has helped to bring together feelings, thoughts, and plans that have been floating around in my head for some time".

With her gentle and approachable nature, Dr. Naoisé O’Reilly is an Irish woman who has become a Global Expert working with men, women, and children around the World.

Indeed, one of the more rewarding aspects of her work is showing clients, who had previously been written off by society, the basic steps they need to take flight and soar.

When she isn't enjoying the company of her family and friends, Naoise will usually be found with a book in her hand or...

Testimonial

"Dr. Naoisé O'Reilly came to us at a time when our child was feeling overwhelmed and anxious due to school. In an attempt to find solutions, I reached out in the worldwide web and was very surprised to find out how many parents and children were experiencing what we were enduring through Dr. Naoisé's website.  It was then, that I decided to reach out and pour my soul. When I was done, I came to realize how desperate, overwhelmed and hopeful our entire family was. I could only hope to get a reply from Dr. Naoisé, at times I thought I was too hopeful. Dr. Naoisé contacted us shortly. It has been an incredible experience, she worked with myself and of course with my child and helped get over the obstacles at the time. Dr. Naoisé worked with us accommodating different time zones, she is an excellent listener and a resourceful person, she helped restore our family and we are happy to watch our child graduate and move on to the next step in life, college. Our child is smiling again and appreciating life with skills given by Dr. Naoisé, thank you, Dr. Naoisé O'Reilly!! Mother, U.S.A. May 2017

Introduction

Welcome to the Confidence Club

One step closer to fulfilling a personal dream of mine - "to make school a happier, creative, more successful and enjoyable place for all students, regardless of their differences"... Dr. Naoisé O'Reilly

There is always a balance between making long term changes in education and supporting those people currently in the system!

One of the many reasons why Students attending The Homework Club become so successful is because of the awareness they have of their own Potential, Personality and Learning Style and how these effect their own educational success. Every Student at The Homework Club is set-up to work to their best abilities within the environment through an initial interview.

The Confidence Club now offers this service to everybody, especially those restricted through distance and who aren't able to attend our classes at The Homework Club.
