The number of people developing chronic health problems is rapidly increasing. Treating the symptoms don’t usually work, and people must get to the root of the problem to regain their healthy selves back. As you wake up to the reality that your current lifestyle does not support your health, there is little to no information on where to start on the healing journey. And I don’t blame you!
Information in the modern health world is, at best, contradicting and confusing. What worked for someone else may not work for you, even if you have the same symptoms. Hours scouring the internet may lead to information overload, leading to even more confusion than you had when you started. So, what should you do or where should you begin to realise your full health again?
The key is to work with a health and wellness coach. But what does a health coach do and how can they help you?
What is a health coach?
A health coach is a wellness authority and supportive mentor who helps you feel your best by offering advice on individualised lifestyle and diet changes to meet your unique requirements and health goals. Often, a remote health coach provides their services in a group coaching setting and private coaching with 1-on-1 programs. The coach focuses on your bio-individuality, which means that we are all different with unique emotional, lifestyle, dietary, and physical needs.
This means there is no one-size-fits-all canvas solution to wellness and health. Instead, a vegan health coach works with you to discover how to fuel your body, so you become the happiest, healthiest version of yourself through a holistic approach.
At the core of my guide called The Plant-Based Transformation Blueprint, there are three essential elements that may be holding you back from achieving your health and weight loss goals, which include:
Not having a proven plan that works
Self-limiting thoughts and beliefs
Lack of coaching and accountability
Now that you know what a health and wellness coach is, what are the benefits of working with one?
Why you should work with a plant-based health coach
Have a customised plan according to your requirements
Everybody is unique, which means that you need a plan that is unique to your specific needs and goals. An important role of a health and wellness coach is to meet you wherever you are on your health journey. From there, the coach determines what your needs are and the best approach based on your values and goals. You work together with the coach to create a plan that works for you.
You have control over the plan
Even after coming up with an action plan with your plant-based health coach, you are still in control. Maybe a session wasn’t what you expected, or something may have changed in your life, so you cannot focus as much as you intended. Your coach will be open for your feedback about how each session went and, together, you can come up with a new plan that works for you.
Access to health education to support long-term goals
A great benefit of a 1-on-1 coaching program is that you are getting personalised advice based on your current health struggles. If you have been searching the web for ‘vegan health coach near me’, choose one that provides information packages based on what goals you are working towards, so you always have something to refer to in the future.
During a coaching relationship, you will learn new things about living a healthier vegan lifestyle. Plus, the vegan coach will teach you best practices to maintain this lifestyle in the long-term, even after the end of the coaching program.
Help overcome obstacles
Obstacles are a natural part of any health journey which can leave you feeling overwhelmed or unmotivated to find a solution. Fortunately, a health coach provides you with extra support and guidance to overcome these hurdles. Your health coach helps you see things from a different perspective and offers solutions when you feel stuck.
Stay motivated and accountable
A health coach is your personal cheerleader to keep you moving forward and stay motivated. Furthermore, they hold you accountable to set objectives, increasing your chances of achieving those goals. They also remind you of small wins along the way and celebrate each step you take forward.
