about this coming weekend because Coach U will air a new television commercial
several times on the Oxygen Network (a cable television network) during Cheryl

& TRENDY TIPS
Coaching Skills. How well do you listen to others? Are you "actively" listening,
or do you find yourself reflecting on your surroundings, thinking about what

pay attention to how we are caring for ourselves. The better you care for
yourself, the more you have to give to others. The more you nourish your spirit,
the better able you are to respond to change, opportunities and disappointments.

getting away for a night or two, having dinner with friends, spending the day in
a park, visiting the local animal shelter, curling up with a novel or simply
helping someone at work who needs it?
