Wellness is the experience of living life with high levels of awareness, conscious choice, self-acceptance, interconnectedness, love, meaning and purpose. Wellness is the individual’s life “ Dr. Arloski, PHD., PCC
What Happens in the Wellness Coaching Relationship?
The coaching experience is much like climbing a mountain with an experienced guide. Mountain guides do not climb mountains for people; they enable people to climb to new heights in places they may have never been before. The guide is an ally, a supporter, a source of feedback and a motivator who holds a person accountable to the task taken on. Together, they see the summit and experience increased health.
Individualizing Wellness Through Coaching
It’s a proven fact that it is much easier-and less expensive-to stay healthy than to get healthy.
Well over 50% of diseases and illnesses, and 90% of injuries are caused by the risky behavior choices we make. These behaviors, therefore, are the primary drivers of poor health, and its negative personal and business consequences. The good news is that these behaviors can be prevented or improved. In fact, improvement in personal lifestyle offers the most viable opportunity to accomplish substantial and sustained improvement in overall health.
Each person needs to assess their individual life style to determine their health risks and with the support of a professional coach develop a lifestyle plan that will enhance their general well being.
The Nature of Change
Too many people look for easy solutions in the wrong places. There are no magic pills, magic pins, or magic plans. People progress through the same stages of change whether they are overcoming problems with substance abuse, anxiety, depression, or weight control. The result is that the principles that address one particular problem can be transferred to many other problems. Change does not depend on luck or willpower; it is a process that can be successfully managed once it is understood.
Together we will work towards creating a climate where positive change can occur, maintain motivation, turn setbacks into progress, and replace bad habits with new ones.
