In the wise words of Albert Einstein: “If we change nothing, nothing changes”. It’s basic, but true.
If only my younger self knew this. Instead of wishing for things to be different, for the bloated belly and food intolerances to just go away, for the grief to magically disappear. How could any of this happen if I continually resisted change (another fave quote: "what we resist persists")? If I kept consuming the foods that I knew made me sick? If I continued to think negatively about myself and my situation? If I didn't care enough for myself to actually look after myself?
Change isn’t easy. Think about it: if it was, we’d all be doing it, living our best lives…no need for coaches, trainers, mentors, motivational speakers and guides. We know this isn't the case, just look at how many self-help books and gurus there are out there!
Change requires shifting from the old to the new. The old, limited, outdated ways of being, doing and thinking. We have to be ready and willing to embrace, hold and envision the new version of ourselves.
Change means doing things differently (not easy for us creatures of habit). Not doing the same old things and expecting a different result - that's the definition of insanity, my love!
This is where health coaches come in. Think of me as your personal trainer meets life coach meets nutritionist.
Together we’ll explore your situation, set health goals and...create CHANGE. Real, lasting, sustainable change.
It could mean a new meal plan tailored to you and your health challenges, it means introducing self-care practices that nourish you at a deep level, and it means being willing to see things in a new light (and being honest with yourself).
My role is to help you unpack your (mostly negative) beliefs, mindset, thoughts and perceptions about yourself, your health and what's working for you and what's not.
We’ll also take a deep dive into your lifestyle and environment: all the factors that either contribute to – or take away from – your overall wellbeing.
It’s about so much more than what’s on your plate or how many kale smoothies you chow down! That’s the reason I chose to become a health coach, actually. Because I believe it’s about empowering people to reclaim their health through inspired action.
So, my question to you is are you resisting change? And if so, what's one teeny tiny step that you can make today to show yourself more love?
Have a happy and healthy week.
