What is Health Coaching? Health coaching, also referred to as wellness coaching, is a process that facilitates healthy, sustainable behavior change by challenging a client to listen to their inner wisdom, identify their values, and transform their goals into action. Health coaching draws on the principles of positive psychology and the practices of motivational interviewing and goal setting.
Renew Self refers to renewing our higher self; the part of us that already knows what we need to have a healthy and joyful life. This is our inner voice that is always speaking to us through our body/mind. Most of the time, however, we ignore this voice or can’t hear it because of our culture of busyness and over-stimulation. If we can stop long enough to get quiet, we can begin to hear our inner voice of wisdom. Learning to trust it, is the next step to finding the peace and joy that we all desire.
S.E.L.F. also refers to…
Strength: Recognizing and renewing our inner strengths throughout our lifetime gives us what we need to tackle obstacles and problems that arise from time to time but don’t need to stop us from succeeding in whatever our heart desires.
Energy: Knowing how to build and balance our energy reserves (cultivating resilience) through healthy diet, movement and rest, connections to people and environment, our personal/professional pursuits and growing spiritually, will give us the opportunity for optimal health and happiness.
Life: What makes your life meaningful? What is the purpose of your life? What gives you “life”? These are questions that make us reflect on our life in a broader way; to know that our life is a sacred gift. Choosing to love ourselves and our life is critical to making the changes we want in moving towards our best life.
Freedom: Understanding that we always have choices in every situation can create possibilities beyond our wildest dreams. If you have ever felt stuck in a situation, renewing your SELF through acknowledging your strengths, building your energy through self-care and asking yourself powerful questions, you will create the freedom you desire.
