Change is a Collaborative Process
How many times have you resolved to #improveyourhealth, only to abandon your goals a few weeks later? Do you ever wage an internal battle between what you know you need to do and what you want to do? Or found it tough to find the motivation to turn a simple treatment regimen into a daily practice?
There is no shortage of information available about the importance of living a healthy lifestyle. Yet according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), only 6.3% of Americans age 21 and older engage in the five key health-related behaviors for chronic disease prevention:
maintaining a normal body weight
getting sufficient daily sleep
being physical active
consuming little or no #alcohol
The issue is not that people aren’t well intentioned – it’s that change is difficult. As a health coach, I know that simply telling a client what they should do is not going to magically help them alter unhealthy habits. That’s why at Body Wisdom Montclair, creating meaningful and lasting #dietandlifestyle changes is a collaborative process.
My #coachingpractice is not about being an authority or trying to force you to do something I think is right. When it comes to living a healthy and happy life, I’m not the expert – you are. My mission is to empower you to do what works for you by providing the tools and support you need to advocate for your well being, find your own answers and create your own possibilities.
We do this together by exploring your goals and getting to the heart of why you want to make a change. I serve as your accountability partner, your ally in meeting your challenges head on. This does not mean I won’t share ideas and information, or suggest working with other health professionals or medical practitioners. It simply means that the person responsible for developing new behaviors is you. And I’ll be with you every step of the way.
