Learning to listen was not the first lesson I expected to have on my first day of health coach training nearly 5 years ago. The lesson was on how to actively listen with curiosity and without interruption. Active listening is a specific type of listening that is all about the speaker, not the listener. Seems like a simple concept, but in practice it takes… well, practice!
The dictionary states that creativity is the use of imagination or original ideas, especially as it pertains to artistic work. Synonyms include ingenuity, inventiveness, and vision.

For a moment, let’s rewind to March 2020. Where were you? What were you doing? We were on a family vacation with our two youngest while Aicha, our oldest enjoyed her semester in Madrid.
Welcome to a brand new year! What a year 2020 was. Here at VHC, we have been doing a lot of reflecting, preparing, and fine-tuning our mindset for the year ahead.
