In order to understand what Wellness Coaching is, let’s first define Wellness:
According to the National Wellness Institute, “Wellness is an active process through which people become aware of, and make choices towards, a more successful existence.”
Sounds so simple and yet many people are unhealthy despite major advancements in modern medicine.
Why Do I Need a Wellness Coach?
In general, are you stressed beyond your limits both at home and work? Is your tendency to use unhealthful coping mechanisms such as overeating, smoking, and/or substance abuse to self-medicate? Have you grown used to your doctor telling you to lose weight, get more exercise, quite smoking, lessen your alcohol consumption, etc.? Most people don’t tend to take their doctor’s advice to heart. Most people do not change even though they claim they want to. That’s understandable. Change is difficult and opens you up to the possibility of failure. No one likes that. As your Wellness Coach, I will champion you to success and help you realize there are no failures except not trying.
Many people also lack a mind-body-spirit balance. Very few take time out for themselves amidst a life full of taking care of others. The notion “if I work harder I’ll get ahead” seems to prevail over the reality of working smarter (and healthier). Does this sound like you?
