” If you do not take care of yourself first, then you are no good to anybody else.”
I’m Hillary. As a Health Coach I work with women to help them live healthier and happier lives. I bring together a variety of elements such as self-care, healthier eating, physical fitness and stress reduction to help achieve their goals.
What is a Health Coach?
Think of a health coach like you would any member of your health care team. Just like any kind of coach they are there to help you become the best version of you. You know you best. A health coach is not going to tell you what to do, but instead guide you though helping you figure out what goals you want to accomplish and then help you implement those changes. In recent years more and more people are turning to health coaches to help them ditch bad habits and adopt new, healthier ones.
A health coach is basically your personal health cheerleader, guide and partner. They help you implement lifestyle changes to improve not only your physical health, but your overall health and happiness.
Your coach can provide you with resources and tools, but you are the one who has to decide to put things into action. The reality is that there is a ton of information out there, and a health coach can help you sift through it all. They can help you figure out what is relevant to you and what works for you.
Health Coaches generally look at all areas of your life and not just nutrition or exercise. Some key areas that affect wellness are, Stress, Nutrition, Social Life, Home Environment, Relationships, Physical Activity, as well as others. It is not just about what you’re physically putting in your body, but about so much more. When even one thing in your life is out of balance, it’s likely that others are as well.
Health coaches help people sort out where to start and help them make small changes that grow over time. It is all about self discovery and a health coach will just lead you in putting together the pieces of the puzzle yourself. In the end only you know you best.
You have to recharge yourself, an empty battery doesn’t work.
You’ve got to get your body moving each and every day.
If you don’t fuel your body right, it just doesn’t function.
Society has made us believe that self care is selfish… that couldn’t be further from the truth.
Committing to truly taking good care of yourself enables you to show up in the best way possible for the people who need you.
