First, the difference between a health coach and a holistic health coach is important to understand. Some health coaches work with a specific health issue or within a particular niche. For example, some health coaches focus primarily on nutrition, or fitness modalities. Others may offer support around hormone health or gut health. A holistic health coach takes a broader view and looks at all lifestyle factors that may be negatively affecting your health and wellness. There is a strong underlying belief that to have optimal health and wellness there needs to be a fluid balance between the mind, body and soul. Keep reading to learn how working with a holistic health coach will transform your health and subsequently your life for the better.
Here are the 10 specific health benefits of working with a health coach.
Let’s get to it!
Working 1:1 with a holistic health coach gives you a beautiful window into what isn’t working in your life right now. Most people seeking health coaching are feeling tired, run down, overweight, unhappy and/or overwhelmed. They are frustrated and don’t know where to start. A holistic health coach helps you regain your vitality and radiance which doesn’t have to fade with age.
A health coach looks at not only the food on your plate, but also the ways you move each day, the quality of your relationships, your spiritual practices, your job satisfaction and home environment in name a few. You and your health coach look at all the factors in your life that either fill you up or deplete you.
A holistic health coach considers your bio-individuality which is a fancy way of saying what works for one person doesn’t always work for another person. We are each different and need a unique roadmap to health, which your holistic health coach crafts specifically for you! It is 100% customized to you.
Wouldn’t it be great to have a space to share your health frustrations, and concerns without feeling rushed or unheard? A skilled integrative health coach creates a nurturing environment for authentic connection to flourish. An environment where you feel completely free to share honestly what is creating resistance and overwhelm in your life. From this place of information sharing and understanding your health coach works with you to create an action plan with SMART (Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, Time-based) goals to help you cultivate healthier habits and a supportive mindset that allows you to establish lifestyle changes that will last a lifetime.
The ultimate luxury in your health and wellness journey is having your very own point person. A coach that is invested in you looking, feeling and showing up as your best. A holistic health coach serves as a hub for all things related to your health and well-being and acts as your advocate and referral point for all other health and wellness providers. Your health coach can act as a referral if a deep dive is needed in a particular area of your life. Or, your health coach can work closely with your primary care giver. To have a health coach by your side, empowers you to make clear, confident choices about your health and how you want to feel each day.
You get a customized plan from your holistic health coach that focuses on internal and external influences that may be affecting how you look, feel and show up each day. Internal influences could be a negative mindset, anxiety, unhelpful habitual thought patterns. External influences are the actions your taking such as what foods you’re eating, how you’re moving your body each day, the nature of your relationships, your sleep patterns, self-care practices. You will learn how to crowd out bad habits and replace them with positive ones.
Your holistic health coach will help you break through the blocks that come up (and they come up for all of us) to continue moving forward towards the goals you have set. When you have a step-by-step customized plan and receive weekly tips, suggestions, check-ins and support; you are set up for success.
A health coach keeps you accountable and focused on your goals when you might otherwise get distracted by the demands of your daily life. It is so helpful to check in with each week with your health coach and discuss any blocks that may have come up for you and to receive suggestions to help move past them. An accountability partner is key to success, particularly when you are trying to create transformative results and a new lifestyle centered around prioritizing your health and wellness.
Breaking action steps down into small steps and simple practices is the secret sauce of a holistic health coach. Do you ever feel like you have to completely overhaul aspects of your life in order to fit into those pair of jeans, or to have more energy with your kids, or to get that promotion, or new romantic relationship? Hello overwhelm. Overwhelm leads to inaction because we just don’t where to start so we end up not starting at all. Hence the feeling of being stuck. A health coach gets this. The simplest, easiest practices create massive change in the long run. It’s just knowing what to do and when to do it. This is the value of a health coach.
Holistic health coaching is all about a customized plan that fits your busy life. It takes into consideration where you live, the demands of your job, if you have kids or not, your relationship status. There are no rigid dos and don’ts. There are no strict meals plans or rigorous workout plans. It’s about slow and steady progress. It’s about crafting a new lifestyle that supports how you want to live. If you transform your health in a holistic way, you transform your life.
Empowering you is the ultimate goal of a holistic health coach. Giving you the tools, practices and recommendations so you can feel in control of your health again. The goal with clients is to have them become self-sufficient their program so they feel equipped to set goals, create an action plan and stick with it. And, if a block comes up they have the methods that work for them to get back on track. It’s a roadmap to success!
