If you’re older than the age of 25, likely you’ve noticed changes in your body that are, well, un-welcomed. These could come in the form of excess belly fat, migraines, adult acne, even blood sugar spikes, or blood pressure spikes.
Maybe you’ve tried every fad diet known to man yet still cannot keep that extra 20 pounds off. Or, maybe it came in the form of a major health scare that you’ve labeled, “a wake-up call.”
Regardless of the nature of your less-than-optimal health, hiring a health coach might be the missing link to creating the vibrancy you desire.
Coaches come armed with tools that many people don’t currently have in their toolbox. Among these are three primary elements.
- The right system
- The right accountability
- The right support
Consider these to be like “legs on a stool.” If you take one leg away, the stool falls. To ground yourself properly, all three legs must hold equal weight and assist in the support. With that in mind, let’s dive into how these three legs work together.
The Right System:
As much as we’d like to think so, not every “body” is the same. Each of us has a different physiology; or a different genetic and cellular makeup, that governs our body processes. Digging deep into how your body best functions at your physiologic-level is important in creating a nutritional plan that is optimal for you. A holistic-health coach can guide you in the right direction.
The Right Accountability:
Let’s face it, most of us know the basics of ‘what to do’ to be healthier; we just don’t always do it. Can I get an amen!?! With an individualized coaching program, you’ll have weekly check-in calls with your coach. These calls not only keep you accountable to taking empowered action but your coach can also give you that ‘kick-in-the-rear-end;\’ that you will likely need from time to time.
The Right Support:
Quite often, what you think you desire is only the tip of the iceberg. Coaching can help the client peel off the layers to get to the root of what’s really desired and more importantly, to what’s been stopping you from getting it. Support allows the client a safe space to dig deep. No judgment, no criticism, just transformational breakthroughs that often surprise and delight the client.
If you’re looking to transform your lifestyle or health into a place that you’ve only ever imagined, try hiring a health coach for a few sessions.
Most health coaches offer a free, or low cost, discovery-call where they help you to uncover what’s been holding you back and where you want to go; while the client gets to experience the coach’s style. At the end of the call, you’ll both decide whether or not to work together. If it’s a great fit, transformation is not only possible but inevitable!
