We've all been there. You make a decision to change some aspect of your daily routine - exercise more, drink less caffeine, eat more fiber rich foods. You set a goal to add a daily walk, drink decaf coffee or add a green vegetable to your evening meal and for a while you are able to stick to it. But before it has a chance of becoming a habit, you are back to your old routine. It turns out that simply deciding to be healthier doesn't work.
It can be frustrating. We often feel stuck in our ways and unable to break out of old habits. But the good new is that a health coach can help with this.
A health coach is a trained expert in the neuroscience of human behavior change. They are trained to ask you the right questions that will help you uncover your inner motivations and get at your "why". Using open-ended, non-judgemental questions and active listening a coach will work with you to help you set realistic short and long term goals and will then provide support and accountability to you on your health journey. They can help you establish healthier habits and guide you to the tools and resources to make it easier to live a healthier lifestyle.
Studies have demonstrated that working with a health coach can help you achieve and maintain better health with many benefits including fewer hospitalizations, better adherence to medication, fewer ER visits and improved mental health. Health coaching may be what you need to help better manage stress, improve your nutrition, add in regular exercise, reduce sedentary time, and have improved sense of well-being.
Many insurance plans cover the cost of health coaching. We will verify what your plan covers prior to scheduling you with one of our experienced Clinical Health Coaches. They are here to support you in a more efficient weight loss journey.
