How Gaining an Education Improves Your Life
Feb 21, 2020

Reading time 2 min.

Do you feel stuck in life? Do you feel like you have reached the pinnacle of what you can obtain? Well, maybe it’s time for you to reach higher by going back to school. Here are some ways that getting an education can improve your life.

1. Improve your chances of getting the job

When you send in your resume for a position, employers will look at your education level. There are some employers who will put you at the bottom of the pile or dismiss your resume all together if you don’t have a certain degree. A good education boosts your resume significantly.

2. Make more money

When you get a better job, you get a better paycheck. Let’s face it, that’s the thing that most people care about most when it comes to a job. You need a position that pays you well. Getting a college degree will help increase the amount of money you are likely to get.

3. Know more

Some people have a natural curiosity and thirst for information. You don’t need to go to college for any other reason than giving you the opportunity to learn more about your industry and the world in general. This thirst for knowledge will not go unnoticed by future employers.

4. Network and make friends

While in class, you will come across a number of other people. You can become friends with these people through study sessions or getting lunch in between classes. Some of these people may even have valuable connections in your field that could become very valuable down the line.

5. Increase self-esteem

Getting a higher degree helps you feel good about yourself. You set your mind on a goal, and you accomplished it. You should feel glad about that. This newfound confidence will stay with you as you look for a better job.

6. Stimulate the brain

As we get older, the brain starts to go. However, the brain is like a muscle- the more we use it, the stronger it will get. We need to continue thinking and learning to keep our brain sharp. One way some people choose to do this is by going to school. It doesn’t matter how old you are, you should continue to learn and grow.

7. Gain independence

Education is the key to independence. When you get an education, you give yourself the gift of self-reliance. You will be able to use that degree to help you move forward in life. You will no longer need to rely on anybody else. So prep for ACT so you can start your own personal revolution.

8. Be an asset to your community

When you learn a valuable skill, such as nurse or social work, you become a contributing part of society. You are useful and needed. When you start your new career, you will feel good about yourself and fulfilled every day when you get home. It’s a feeling that to some people is worth more than the pay they receive for the work.

9. Improve life for your children

The main reason to get a higher education isn’t you- it’s your children. When you get a higher education and a higher-paying job, you are giving your child a better quality of life. You want the best for them, so give it to them by getting your degree and getting to the next level in life.

The idea of going back to school can be very scary for some. However, you should bite the bullet and get it done. You may be amazed at the doors it can open for you and the people in your life.

Wellness Coaching
$20 USD
50 & Beyond Health & Wellbeing Discovery Session

Join me for a comprehensive look into what it will take to stay physically and mentally strong as you move through the second half of your life.

We all want to age without the fear of suffering from a chronic illness and still have the energy and strength to live the life we want.

The number one reason people fail to stay healthy as they age is the inability to consistently follow the right habits and behaviours for health transformation.

Through working with 1000's of clients over the last 20 years, I have been able to develop a coaching program that not only looks at nutrition, exercise, sleep and stress management but also how to develop the right mindset needed to succeed.

Having a plan is not as important as having the ability to implement it.

If you are someone who struggles to follow healthy habits consistently. Or you are someone who wants to learn more about what they need to do personally to avoid chronic illness. Then my 30-minute Discovery Session is ideal for you.

From the 30 minutes we spend together, we will go through in specific detail what it is you can do today when it comes to what to eat, how to get the most from exercise, how to develop a powerful sleep routine and how to build a healthy environment needed to live a healthy life.

And with over 20 years of coaching experience in the health & wellness industry, I have witnessed firsthand what it takes to consistently follow the right habits and behaviours for lasting change.

Expect to hear things that will challenge what you have always been told about nutrition, exercise, sleep and stress management. As someone who is over 50 and is stronger, fitter and healthier than I was in my 20s, 30s, & 40s, I am well-placed to know what works and doesn't as we move through this period of our lives.

Check Your Vibes! Find out how much Positive and Negative energy you have!

The Energy Leadership™ Index (ELI) assessment is the proprietary, research-backed assessment tool, created by iPEC, that takes something abstract, like the way a person views the world, and turns it into something tangible—a metric that you can see and feel and even reevaluate in the future.

You’ve probably taken personality tests, like Myers Briggs, DiSC, and Enneagram, but this is different. And transformational.

The ELI is an attitudinal assessment tool that captures how an individual currently perceives and approaches work and life. This means that you learn to make change happen in real-time when you encounter a moment of self-doubt, fear, or frustration.

With the awareness and insights gained through the Energy Leadership Index debrief, you have the opportunity to reshape your attitudes and worldview and transform your life into the one you envision.

Our worldview is the result of a combination of many different aspects: our past experiences, level of consciousness, perception of situations. Each of us has a unique combination of all seven levels of energy which, in turn, creates your typical viewpoints, perceptions, and beliefs about life.

Learning about your energetic makeup can help you to reframe your perspective, shift your consciousness, and increase your energy level as a result. Discover your unique energetic makeup by taking an ELI Assessment!

This comes with an hour debrief - As an FYI the price is what it is because there is a price to me- I have to pay the institution for the assessment and the scoring. Then I'll walk you thorugh your results.

Oxygen to the rescue! Great for Mental Health, Brain Injury, Detox, inflammation

Hyperbaric Oxygen Chambers are one of the oldest and safest treatments available. Oxygen detoxifies and heals. I was introduced to Hyperbaric Oxygen Chambers (HBOC) by Dr. Amen, a world reknown Psychiatrist. Oxygen is great for ADD, Mood Disorders, Trauma, Insomnia, Brain injuries, Wound healing and Inflammation.

This is from Dr. Amen's Clinic: "If you are struggling with a mental health condition, recovering from a concussion or traumatic brain injury (TBI), or dealing with cognitive or memory problems, hyperbaric oxygen therapy may be for you. People all over the world have reported recovering from a variety of conditions and experiencing dramatic improvements with this type of popular therapy."

Most people will feel a difference off of one treatment, especially if you typically have trouble sleeping. You will sleep like a rock.
