Making the necessary changes to lead a healthier lifestyle than what you’re currently living can be difficult. Often our list of habits is the culmination of years of good habits and priorities that have fallen by the wayside. Fortunately, there’s a way that you can get yourself back on track to get to where you want to be. At Bmorefitbody POSSE, we believe that a healthy lifestyle and wellness coach is a great resource for identifying bad habits that need to be broken, setting goals, and getting on the path to creating healthy habits for life. If you’ve never worked with a coach, we have six ways that we can help with your fitness journey.
Motivation to change
It doesn’t matter how hard you try, you won’t be able to make changes in your life unless you’re motivated to do so. Your motivation can come from any number of places and in many forms. This can include wanting to get in shape so you can keep up with your kids, eating better to control a medical condition you’ve developed, or simply wanting to live a longer, healthier life. Your wellness coach will help you identify your motivation for change so you can get started outlining the process for making those changes.
Set reasonable goals
It’s not uncommon for us to see where we want to be and start working toward getting there. However, an end goal without direction is often unattained. What this means is that you need to have an established pathway with goals along the way to reach the point at the end of your journey. Your coach will assist you in the process of setting meaningful and reasonable goals that will encourage you as you work toward your ultimate fitness goal.
Identifies blockers for change
While change is often necessary, it’s rarely easy. After all, if change was easy, we wouldn’t need coaches to help us with it. It’s not usual to try to make excuses about why you can’t change or what’s making it difficult to change. Is it because of your home life? Is there an addiction that needs to be treated? When you work with a coach, you’ll have someone who is not only helping you identify what needs to change but helping with what’s making it so difficult to change.
Part of improving your overall lifestyle is changing the way you eat. Again, this isn’t a change that’s easy for everyone to make. If fast food didn’t taste good, those chains wouldn’t be worth billions of dollars. Working with a coach is a great way to find ways to make subtle changes over time to your diet that make it much easier to resist foods that are bad for your body. You’re not going to go from wanting to eat a cheeseburger three times a week to wanting to replace it with a salad starting tomorrow. That’s unrealistic and will lead to failure, which can be harmful to your overall progress. Your wellness coach will help you establish a nutrition plan that will help you effectively eliminate foods that are bad for you with a much healthier overall diet.
Help with mindset
One of the biggest battles we fight while working toward change is the mental aspect. You must have the proper mindset when you’re getting ready to make changes in your life. A coach will help you get your mind right before you start your journey to improved health and wellness so you can make lasting lifestyle changes.
