What is Health & Wellness Coaching? Is it nutrition? Fitness? Meditation? Weightloss? Palo santo, healing crystals and full moon parties? Everyone has their own definition of what health and wellness is because “good health” feels different for everyone. Our bodies are vastly different and we all need different things to make us feel good.
But the message that health and wellness is individualistic gets lost in society’s standards of what “health” should look like. Social media, movies, ads, the wellness industry as a whole all project unrealistic expectations of “health,” and that can be overwhelming, stressful, confusing, frustrating and defeating. That’s where Health and Wellness coaching with Ama La Vida comes in – to help you define what health and wellness feels like for you and you only. Let’s bring those goals to life, shall we?
A Year With a Health & Wellness Coach
The goal of our health and wellness coaching is true transformation – mind, body and soul. We believe health coaching isn’t just about losing weight or getting fit. It’s about building a long-term happy, healthy relationship with your body and mind. Together with your coach you’ll develop the tools and resources you need to take back your health, so you can live a happier, more productive and fulfilling life.
Whether you have clear goals you want to accomplish or you have no idea what you want but you just know you want to feel better than you do right now, we’ve got you! Some other things that clients come to us for are: reframing negative self-talk, creating healthier habits, finding more balance and purpose in their life, feeling more confident in themselves, repairing relationships to food and just feeling worthy of living a life you truly love.
Here are a few major focus areas that we’ll work on together:
1. Redefine Health Goals
Like I mentioned above, health and wellness is and should be individualistic. Let’s release everything you think health should look like. How do you want to feel? What goals do you want to create for yourself? And if you don’t know, that’s okay! Most people don’t. In fact, we have a solution just for that.
One of my favorite eCoaching modules is setting EPIC Goals (EPIC stands for Elevating, Practical, Impactful, and Clear). These goals are where we get to turn your vision into reality. We start by creating clear milestones and action steps that you can follow that will help you achieve your goals and visions.
You may have studied Finance or Law or Education. And yet, you are asking yourself to also be an expert in your own health and wellbeing. We bring in experts to support us with our taxes, plumbing, or cleaning our teeth. It’s okay to bring in an expert in to help you with something outside of your wheelhouse. Bring in a coach to help you improve your physical, emotional, spiritual and social well-being!
In addition to being rigorously trained in top certification programs, our health coaches have years of experience in coaching. They are experts in their craft and can help you to prioritize and hone in on the areas where you need the most support.
We have processes and deadlines at work or school that keep us on track and ensure we get things done. When those deadlines are lacking in our personal lives, it is easy to let things slip through the cracks. Weeks, months, and even years can go by without us making the changes we need to be happier and healthier.
Working with a coach provides you with a structured approach to your health and wellbeing. There is a built-in accountability system to keep you on track. Even when you encounter roadblocks or struggle to stay motivated, we’re here with you every step of the way to help you get back up and keep moving forward.
4. Sustainable Change
Coaching is not a quick fix, as much as we would like for it to be. It’s not an overnight miracle (or a product claiming that it is!). Coaching is a way to create sustainable change in your life. A lot of people come to us knowing where they want to be (or don’t want to be) but are just missing the tools and frameworks to help get them to a healthier, happier place in life. A year of coaching will provide you more than enough practices that help continue to strengthen that sustainable change long after our work together is done.
Maximizing This Upcoming Year
A year of coaching might sound like a big commitment. That’s because it is! But you are here and are ready to commit to changing your life. And sometimes, that’s the hardest part. Sure, instances have come up that have forced us to put a lot of goals on hold, but that doesn’t mean we have to completely give up. So much of health and wellness coaching is inner work and that doesn’t have to stop for anything. We only get one life, so why not make it the best it can possibly be?
