Making changes on your own can feel incredibly hard and overwhelming at times. Figuring out which foods to eat, how to move and then finding time for it all can feel like a never ending cycle.
Does this sound familiar?
You’re super excited to be making changes. You buy all the food, get the equipment- Day 1 is here!
Then “life” hits.
You don’t feel that great, your kids were up all night, work is.just.so.busy.
“I’ll get back on track tomorrow” you think.
But tomorrow never comes, because life keeps interrupting you.
If that sounds like you, you might need a health coach!
Health coaches are just that, they help coach you around healthy habits, buy listening to your story and creating a plan just for you.
Just like athletes need a coach to help direct them, many people need a health coach as well.
There are many benefits and reasons why a health coach might be helpful for you, let’s check a few out:
No one size fits all plans
One of the biggest benefits of working with a health coach is an individualized plan just for you. Health coaches take your own unique body and situation into account when creating your plan so it will be tailor made to you.
Go beyond the “what”
What changes you want to make are super important obviously. But the why behind them is also equally as important. When you work with a health coach your health coach will help you understand your deeper why (which can help you maintain consistency).
They will also dig deeper into the why’s behind your resistance or blocks. If you are struggling to implement changes a health coach will help you figure out why and how it can be easier.
Create better goals
We can all create goals for ourselves, like eating better or moving more but are those the best goals we can be making for ourselves? Usually not. When our goals are not specific they are harder to attain. Health coach can help you create specific and attainable goals so you reach your ultimate goal faster.
For example, instead of “eating healthy” as a goal, a better goal might be to cook dinner two times this week.
Know yourself better
Through the process of digging into your resistance and blocks, health coaches can help you understand yourself better. You will learn what helps to encourage motivation, how to work with your own energy and what part of you is standing in the way of you reaching your goals (among countless other things).
See bigger picture/blind spots
You don’t know what you don’t know, right? ????
What I mean is you don’t know what you might be missing.
A health coach can help you see the bigger picture by helping you find your blind spots. We all have our own personal blind spots which is why we need others to help illuminate them for us. A health coach can see the bigger picture of your situation and have insight on what potential blind spots are present.
Maybe this one is the best benefit, you start to feel better! No matter what brought you to working with the health coach often after a short time you will notice how much better you feel.
This can be physical but also mental. When we hand over the planning and management of our health to someone else it can all of a sudden feel so much lighter and easier for us.
Instead of being lost and confused on exactly how to “eat better”, you’ll feel guided and in control.
Working with a health coach can be incredibly helpful and life-changing. If you’re looking to work with someone to help improve your MS symptoms and quality of life, check out my work with me page here!
