Are you living up to your full potential in your life? Do you lack energy, confidence, willpower or inspiration? Do you know that you need to make some changes in your health?
People have dreams that we would like to see come to life. We have things in our life that we want to change or find a new way of doing them. We look for others for guidance.
We get busy or necessary change seems to be overwhelming and we don’t get around to making the change(s) to reach our dreams. We tell ourselves “I don’t have the time. I don’t have the money. I don’t have anyone to support me. I don’t know how to do it.” These are excuses. We all do it, including myself!
So how do we, as people, stop making the excuses to move forward with the changes we need in our lives to become healthier and happier? How can we live up to our full potential? If our support system is lacking, who can we get to back us up or help us out? We all can make the necessary changes in our lives to reach our dreams!
As an Empowerment Health and Wellness Coach, I believe in taking small steps. Completing things slowly while taking the time to learn about your current health struggles and how you can improve yourself by taking action steps. This means taking 1 day at a time. Life is like a puzzle: you can’t put all of the pieces into one spot, each piece has it’s place to complete the final design. Your life is your own , it is not to be modeled after someone else’s. What works for you may not work for your friend, neighbor or that “friend” you met on social media.
Taking small steps each day can be an easy way to change your routine to include healthier habits. Most people do not realize, your health struggles stem from your current routine and habits. It’s the change in your daily routine that can be the scariest. People are known to not accept change. Change will cause anxiety, stress and overwhelm which will make you run from doing the work that it takes to make the necessary change in your life to begin a healthy routine.
Re-training your brain to see things in a different way is key to making life long adjustments to your health!
An Empowerment Coach will be the person that holds you accountable, cheers you on, checks in on you, helps you to see that you have the ability to make things happen for yourself. I guide you to look inside yourself and see the possibilities that you have pushed aside making you feel like you “can’t do it”. With a Coach, you will learn to love yourself and put yourself in the front seat. You are worth so much more than you give yourself credit for; allow yourself to be happy, healthy and fulfilled.
