Top Ten Reasons to Invest in a Health Coach
Investing in a Health Coach is a smart choice for many reasons, whether you are looking to lose weight, gain energy, or simply learn more about nutrition and wellness. Some of the benefits of hiring someone to support, educate, and motivate you on your journey to wellness may seem obvious, but the deeper value of investing in yourself in this way can be highly rewarding and perhaps even surprising in many other areas of your life. When you invest in your health, you re-invent yourself.
Research has proven that people achieve more when they are held accountable. This is why coaches are so popular, whether it’s a sports coach, a teacher, a mentor, a therapist, etc. Having a support system serves as a monitor to gauge our progress and stick to our goals. When we are feeling inspired, listened to, understood, and accepted, it is much more likely that we will feel better and succeed in our personal pursuits.
Sometimes power is a good thing. Power trips and power struggles are a different story. To feel empowered is to feel centered within yourself. When you make the choice to invest in your health, you are automatically investing in and upgrading all areas of your life, i.e. your body, your relationships, your food, your career, your spiritual practice, etc. It’s a courageous and bold step towards developing yourself more fully.
The more intelligent we are, the more we will see that actual health and happiness have very little to do with short-term diets, and is much more than skin deep. Cultivating lifelong tools for health has the inevitable ability to prevent and even treat some major illnesses. Learning to use holistic methods of healing, whether through food, self-care techniques, meditation practices, and/or fitness programs, can dramatically improve your health and prevent future onset of certain inflammatory conditions.
- Weight Loss
This one is obvious. But it’s also profound. The healthier we become, the less toxic sludge we carry around. This is very simple and not complex. Losing physical weight may be a byproduct of unclogging certain blockages in your life that have nothing to do with food. Health coaches offer a gentle and effective approach of supporting you in clearing out impurities so you can feel lighter.
Being healthy is about being 100% you. No excuses. No apologies. I believe one of the main reasons people tend to fail at their health efforts is because they don’t believe in and/or love themselves. If we are not at a place of self-appreciation and self-acceptance, our health efforts are not sustainable. Health Coaches focus on more than just food so that our healthy habits can last for a lifetime.
- Helping Others
When you seek a Health Coach and improve your own wellbeing, it’s not just for you! Literally, everyone who comes into your presence will feel your radiant energy. Have you ever been in a room and a person walks in and literally ‘lights the room up’? When you are feeling more balanced, light, and inspired, it’s contagious. You will encourage others, simply by being you. People will begin to gravitate to your glow.
‘I don’t want to be happy.’ –No one ever.
When I ask people what their main health goal is, usually people desire one of two things: weight loss or peace of mind. When I ask them why they want to lose weight, they tell me that whey wish to feel better. When I ask them how it would feel to feel better, they say, ‘I just want to be happy.’ Whether it’s losing weight or losing stress, people tend to strive for happiness. Happiness and health are one in the same. Your body and mind are not separate, and a Health Coach has a magical way of allowing you to discover how to manage stress and turn on the ‘happy’ button just like that. You will learn how to eat for your mood and adjust your lifestyle based on your personal needs.
Health is more than a slim waist and a deeper knowledge of how to nourish yourself. By addressing various components of life during the Health Coaching program, you will embark on a journey of clearing out old habits and patterns and self-limiting beliefs. When this excavation is complete, there is more space for you to discover your purpose in life. It comes easily. You will effortlessly realize what inspires you and what you are passionate about and how you can contribute to the world by using your creative power.
- Better Relationships
When your body and mind are clear and when you are feeling strong, confident, and empowered, you are automatically attractive. That energy is real, and it is palpable. Whether you are seeking to attract a new relationship or expand an existing one, investing in a Health Coach will nourish not only your body and mind but your relationships with others whether they be intimate, professional, personal, or familial. When we have a healthy relationship with ourselves, it’s easy to enjoy smooth relationships with others.
I don’t want any money.’ –No one I know.
Yes, believe it or not, investing in a Health Coach can actually help you attract more money into your life. I choose to believe that money is energy, and when we use it in a mindful way with purpose and intention, it comes back tenfold. We get what we give, and abundance is an important and essential component of health.
