The World Health Organization (WHO) suggests that health is something that can be enjoyed by everyone regardless of physical limitations. Being healthy simply means having the energy to do the things we care about on an everyday basis.
That’s right, read that second line again… can be enjoyed by everyone!
I am now starting my new lesson, Lifestyle Wellness Coaching: Practice- based coaching competencies to promote lasting change. I am only on the first chapter and it’s already solidifying my choice to become a certified health and wellness coach. Eek! (Pretend you hear me screaming with excitement!) I am so ecstatic to get started on this new endeavor!
I can’t wait to help others chase their dreams and live their best life. I want to squash all of their self-limiting beliefs, I want to help them build on the strengths they already have, I want to encourage self-discovery and most importantly, I want them to know they aren’t doing it alone. I am here to help!
Everything is a little easier when you have the right tools and support system.
Whether your goal is to adopt an active lifestyle, decrease or eliminate an unhealthy habit, train for a sporting event, attain an appropriate weight or maintain any of the healthy habits you already have…. there are tools and techniques that I am learning that can help you meet your goal. For example: chapter one talks about the importance of building a strong foundation:
Self-Awareness- conscious knowledge of one’s own character, feelings, motives, and desires.
Self-awareness is the most significant core competency for health and wellness coaching. As a certified health and wellness coach, I will be helping clients build on their strengths and resources to generate possibilities, overcome challenges and achieve desired results.
A couple reminders, because they never hurt anybody:
- Everything you need, you already have. It’s OK if you need help finding it.
- Your feelings, goals, thoughts and desires are yours, and yours alone. This is your journey, your road to health and wellness. This isn’t a one size fits all situation.
