A Gentle Push to Get Ourselves Unstuck?
Sometimes We Need a Gentle Push To Get Ourselves Unstuck
How many times have you heard yourself say, “Tomorrow, I’m going to start losing that weight,” or “… begin that exercise program,” or “… kick that bad habit!”? And how many times have you slipped back into an unhealthy pattern of behavior? It’s really difficult to change unhealty behaviors and it’s almost impossible to do it on your own. You need someone who can offer advice without being critical.
You need a coach Even professional athletes like New York Yankees home run king Alex Rodriguez need a batting coach. In much the same way, you need a coach who is also a health care professional – a Nurse Coach.
At the Healthy Living Institute, we help our clients overcome those obstacles that prevent them from getting where they want to go. We act as their coach and also as their cheering section, encouraging them to conquer their healthcare challenges, quit those bad habits and discover that they can be healthy, happy and energetic.
Acting as a Nurse Coach means listening to their stories of despair over trying to do it on their own, then helping them rewrite those stories to become tales of purpose, action and success. It means hearing all the reasons why our clients want to start to do something about their health – but don’t.
We make a difference At the Healthy Living Institute, we replace thoughts of personal inadequacy with happy thoughts of feeling good, looking good and being healthy. We believe in keeping it simple and making it fun, encouraging our clients to stretch toward one goal at a time.
We also offer certified workplace wellness coaching to assist small to mid-sized businesses in decreasing healthcare costs due to absenteeism and chronic illness. If you would like to learn more about what we offer, we invite you to call for a consultation.
