Today 1 out of 2 adults has a chronic illness. Yet 70% of healthcare costs are related to preventable diseases. With the right education and support, people can improve their health and lifestyle. You just need someone who can show you the way. That’s where Wellness Coaching comes in.
Wellness Coaches and their role:
Wellness coaches support people to make healthy lifestyle changes. They use an integrated, holistic approach to health and well-being, taking into account not just nutrition and exercise, but all aspects of a person’s lifestyle including career, relationships, spirituality, mindset and other factors that affect a person’s well-being. Wellness Coaches provide support and accountability so that people can make lasting lifestyle changes.
Wellness Coaches are leading the way in the healthcare field as we embark upon a new journey of what wellness really means. Our health is more than our physical appearance, the number on a scale or even our blood pressure. Our well-being is a much deeper, holistic look at how we feel and live each day. Wellness Coaching examines not only the food we eat and the movement we do, but considers our relationship with our self and others, how our mental and emotional state affects our health and what truly motivates us to live a healthy life.
Millions of people set health and wellness goals every year. Whether it’s a New Year’s resolution or a response to some not-so-great news from the doctor, we tend to want to do better. Our health impacts every area of our life. But when it comes to getting fit, changing old habits or improving our emotional wellbeing, making changes is not always easy to do. A wellness coach can support and empower you to make choices that enable you to reach your goals.
You might be wondering how wellness coaching fits in with traditional health advice and care. It’s a great question. In some cases, a wellness coach picks up where a doctor or nutritionist leaves off. A doctor may recommend that a coach partner with a patient to help them reach their goals. A coach can’t diagnose illnesses or prescribe medications. However, they can affect change on a deeply personal level and help to tie an entire healthcare plan together for a successful outcome. Wellness Coaches are like the glue in someone’s health journey.
