Have you ever received good advice that you were unable to follow? Has your doctor ever recommended a lifestyle change that you found to be unsustainable? Have you ever wanted something in your life, but found you couldn’t achieve it alone?
“Happiness is not readymade.
It comes from
your own actions.”
– Dalai Lama

7 Reasons Why a Nutrition & Health Coach Can Help You to Thrive
1. Support through your journey
It is often difficult to stick to your health resolutions; you can be your own worst enemy. A health coach will show you how to make small changes that build up to a lifetime of good health, rather than a quick fix. Obstacles are inevitable, but a health coach can arm you with the skills you need to cope with current and future barriers, and get back on track following temporary slip ups.
2. Build a foundation of knowledge
There may be many dietary changes that you need, but you don’t know where to start. You figure that you don’t have any control over cravings and usually give in to them. Every existing diet conflicts with every other diet, leaving you confused about what is truly healthy for your body. A health coach will help you identify what will work for YOU in order to beat your cravings and change your health, meal by meal.
3. Create time for yourself
It can be challenging to find the time to pamper yourself, exercise, and cook in-between work, a social life, and other responsibilities. A health coach will help you balance your time and reset your priorities, so that you can reduce your stress and take care of yourself.
4. Set smart and attainable goals
As a client, your health coach will create an understanding of your own unique fitness personality and nutritional tendencies, past successes and failures, and attitudes toward changes in health. Through these, he or she will work with you to establish both short and long term goals, which will be revisited and changed as you see yourself change.
5. Retrain the way you think
You may not be aware of situations where negative self-talk (the things we tell ourselves) occurs. A health coach will help you shift your perspective to a more accurate and positive way of thinking, so that you encourage yourself rather than beat yourself down.
6. Become self-reliant
Healthy habits last a lifetime. Ultimately, a health coach will help you develop the motivation to maintain an environment fostering these healthy habits, so that you can continue along your path of complete well-being.
7. Focus on your whole being
With a focus on enhancing, preserving and maintaining health, and preventing illness, health coaches understand the emotional, physical, behavioral, nutritional, and lifestyle factors that are needed to enhance overall health and well-being.
