There oftentimes is a bit of a mystery as to how I help people and I wanted to share a bit of my role as a health coach, in case you were wondering how health coaches can help you reach your health and wellness goals. Your goals are important, and when you begin increasing your fitness or eating healthier, the excitement is high and you are committed. But over time the shininess wears off and it gets tough. This is where a health coach can come in for your benefit, to make the tough process a little simpler and a lot more fun.
Consider us your guide on the side to get you to where you want to be. If you were to decide to climb a mountain like Everest for example, you would most likely hire a guide or a sherpa to help you to navigate the unfamiliar terrain. Health Coaches play the same role! While we will not strap you to our back and carry you up the mountain, we are hiking alongside you and teaching you what to implement, what tool to use, and what obstacles to look out for along the way.
The number one thing a health coach can help you with is implementing a plan and sticking to it. Have you had a tough time with that in the past? It's one of the main jobs of a health coach. We meet, discuss your goals, and map out a future vision, and then create micro-goals to get you started. Discovering your WHY as to these goals is super important as well, and will lead your coach to understand your source of motivation behind the desired changes.
But beware, not all health coaches are equal!! I mean this in the kindest of ways, but truly it's a title, and anyone can call themselves a health coach. I see a lot of people who don't have appropriate training referring to themselves as a health coach so don't be afraid to ask questions about their training and be clear on their process. Mine process is super straightforward. As a certified Integrative Nutrition Health Coach, I have created a simple and effective 5 step process for busy moms to go through my program and leave feeling more knowledgeable about their bodies and trusting the tools they have developed. We work on goal setting, awareness, creating a plan, implementing the plan, and celebrating the goal. This process is broken down more and tailored to your goals, even as they change through the program.
I hear from people that hiring a health coach can be expensive. And to that I say, what does life feel like right now? Where is your greatest source of stress and shame? How would it feel if that area stays the same one year from now? Five years from now? Ten years from now?
Now, let's think BIG vision. What if everything you have been desiring in your health and wellness came to life...how would you be feeling? How would you be living each day? How would you be living your life 6 months from now? One year from now? Ten years from now?
Is that core desire you have to
be less stressed
feel sexier for your spouse
feel more confident in your clothes
not have to worry or feel guilty about the food you eat
have more energy to play with your kids
or just yell at them less because you are aligned and centered AF
What is THAT worth to you? You might not be in full belief that you can get there, because you have always done it on your own. But working with a health coach CAN get you there, and it equips you with the tools to stay consistent and lose weight for good!
