When mentioning about life coaching, an interesting concept is that of health coaching, the practice of health education and health promotion within a coaching context, aiming to enhance the well-being of individuals and to facilitate the achievement of their health-related goals.
Do you want to lose weight, quit smoking, eat better or maybe lower stress level but you don’t find in yourself the strength to do it?
Then a life coach could be your ticket to a more fulfilling life.
Through motivational interviewing, Socratic questioning and many other efficient techniques, the coach can increase your self-awareness and your liability regarding the problems you encounter, two very important factors in the changes coaching promises.
Wonder how it works?
Here’s an example of how a good coach can convert the health inhibition thinking into a health enhancing thinking:
“Exercise makes me sweat, so it can’t be good for me, I don’t like it.”
“Sweating isn’t a pleasant feeling but I know it is good for me because it removes toxins from my body, eventually bringing my body a general state of wellbeing.”
