Our society has created an environment that's not optimal for humans to thrive. We're expected to do more with less sleep, to eat on the run, and to fuel our bodies with caffeine and energy drinks. With this type of environment comes more diseases at earlier ages, higher stress levels and more unhappy people.
Sounds depressing, but there is good news! Health coaching is a quickly growing field and thankfully, it's becoming readily available to help people identify and achieve their health and wellness goals. Health Coaches can help you realize how important you are and guide you to a healthier and happier you. If you are thinking that this sounds too good to be true, it’s not.
Why work with a health coach? There are tons of great reasons, but here are the top five:
1. You'll Discover Natural Remedies
Have you gone to the doctor because you're not feeling like yourself, only to be told to take a medication that comes with many side effects or that there is no help for you? A health coach can help you learn about natural healing options and how food can help heal you. Really, the answer to your health and wellness concerns is as easy as proper nutrition. How exciting that food can heal you!
2. A Coach Listens
When you seek help for your health concerns, do you feel like you just shared your most personal details with a brick wall? A health coach wants to help you, so they focus on you. A health coach is trained to actively listen to people. This means that a health coach will listen to your words, ask questions, and help you identify the root of your concern.
3. It's Individualized Attention
When you work with a health coach, together you identify your concerns as well as your dreams. Once your goals are identified, together you and your health coach create a health and wellness plan to help you achieve them. The wellness plan may consist of nutrition, body movement, career, relationship, and everything in between. This way, you have the best chance to succeed because the advice is tailored to you. It's not cookie cutter advice.
4. You'll Set Realistic Goals
Wouldn’t it be nice to have advice and support that actually works with your lifestyle? A health coach will create a plan with you and then help guide you step by step to achieving your goals. If you are a person who tends to eat out a lot then smoothies will not be a part of your plan. You may be taught on what smoothies are, but together you will find realistic foods for you to snack on as well as guidance and support in taking small steps to transform your health habits.
5. You'll Make a Connection With Your Coach
The best part is the connection that you will make with your health coach. You have the unique opportunity to talk confidentially with a health coach about your concerns. Your health coach is a person that you will have many conversations with and will get to know the true you. The connection that is made is vital to helping you achieve your health and wellness goals. It is hard to find a someone who is dedicated to your success with no judgement, but a health coach is just that person!
If you're ready to have a conversation that could change your life, find a health coach dedicated to helping you live your life to the fullest!
