Do You Need a Personal Health Coach? When to know…
As we have approached an era where health and wellness has a tremendous popularity and the internet and social media have become our go-to for healthy recipes, answers and researches. Many questions have been answered but very often leaving us with even more questions with more complex answers; this creates confusion, and an explosion of unverified information, and even more yo-yo dieting than ever before.
As I said last week, the truth is that when it comes to achieving a long healthy lifestyle it is not a “one-size-fits-all”. Figuring out the most nourishing diet and lifestyle for YOU maybe not be that easy for you.
There are many factors that go into finding your unique balance, such as your family ancestry, body type, cravings, energy levels, life circumstances, schedule, location, access to resources, and so much more.
Putting it all together in a way that makes sense and in a way that allows you to thrive, this requires a personal touch from someone well prepared, knowledgeable and supportive. That’s where a Health Coach comes in!
A Health Coach can help you sort out truth from myths, provide you with personalized information that’s relevant to you and your individual challenges and goals, so you can achieve truly a healthy lifestyle.
Here are 6 signs that show that you might need help of a Health Coach:
#1 You want to improve your diet and lifestyle but you’re not sure where to start.
Tired with all the conflicting information and different diets, one day you are vegan, the next day you are paleo, and the day after that you’re sure that Mediterranean is the way to go. Sound familiar? A Health Coach can help you take the pressure off perfection, simplify things and help you take one step at a time. They guide you towards an eating plan that works best for your mind, body and soul.
#2 Something in your health is Off
In addition to consulting your primary care provider, working with a Health Coach can help you dig deeper into what you’re feeling and going through, get to the root of what is causing the imbalance, and find new ways to help you feel your healthiest. From fatigue and low energy to hormonal imbalances and digestive issues, Health Coaches guide clients through listening to their bodies and making sustainable lifestyle adjustments to fix as they may seem minor issues that may have major effects on your health in the long run.
#3 You work better with guidance and accountability
Whether you need help addressing your uncontrollable cravings, finding the motivation to keep up with your fitness routine, or getting inspired to be more creative in the kitchen, a Health Coach can help you establish the structure you need to make progress toward your goals. Regular check-ins with a Health Coach will help you feel accountable and supported for the health decisions you make in the process in a way that is motivating and encouraging.
#4 You want to create an amazing health legacy
You have decided to make a change for your children by leading by example, with wholesome food and healthy eating habits. A Health Coach can help you refine your own health and through that process, provide you with ways to inspire, lead by example and help others along your journey, whether it’s your kiddos, family, friends or community.
#5 Tired of dieting and deprivation
If you’ve tried every diet under the sun and are fed up with feeling discouraged, and frustrated because you always end up in the same spot. A Health Coach will help you reconnect with your goals, what is important in your life and what’s preventing you from achieving them. Becoming healthy isn’t just about nutrition – in fact, weight loss comes with a variety of lifestyle related challenges that a Health Coach can help you safely address so you can shed the weight for good in a way that you are healthy, knowledgeable and happy.
If you’re interested in taking the next step, search for Health Coaches that interest you and simply reach out to begin the conversation of discovering whether they’d be a good fit for you. That is very important not all Health Coaches will be the right fit for you, and that is O.K. Check out their approach, certifications, specialties, experience and rate to see if they are the one for you.
You can usually schedule a free consultation and even speak with a few Health Coaches until you find the one that feels right for you.
But regardless of who you choose be ready to:
Listen and to be listened.
Put in the work.
Be open to vulnerability.
Invest in your health.
Change your life for good.
Please share and help your loved ones see if a Health Coach might be exactly what they need to achieve a long happy healthy lifestyle.
Lots of love,
