Move the way you like. Fitness is not a chore.
We do not stop exercising because we grow old – we grow old because we stop exercising.
– Kenneth Cooper
No truer words were spoken. Life is beautiful. It is a gift, a mystery, a challenge, an opportunity, a risk, and it’s all-encompassing. We get so busy and engrossed in staying on top of our game that we forget that we can only be as good as our body and mind can allow us to be. When we are young, our body does not mind the stresses that we put it under, it has enough capacity and reserve to survive whatever we can dish at it. Over the years however, the body changes gears slowly and steadily. We do not realize it immediately and keep up with the lifestyle that we are accustomed to. The body will start protesting eventually and show signs and symptoms of dissent. Acidity, bloating, hypertension, diabetes, etc. start emerging as a by product of an unhealthy lifestyle.
The keyword here is Balance. Developing balance in all aspects of our life and devoting sufficient time to self care practices is critical and should be an integral part of one’s life. Self care practices are essential for our well-being. It is the “maintenance” for living in a healthy body so that we continue to enjoy/doing the things that we love and need to do, to our best possible ability throughout our life.
Incorporating healthy lifestyle practices in one’s life may seem easy for some while others may struggle to incorporate even basic changes. Health and Wellness Coaching can help individuals who are looking to get fit and active, but have been struggling to incorporate changes in their lifestyle to see the results they desire.
Health and Wellness Coaching seeks to address the problem holistically rather than taking a superficial view of the issue. It is a client directed process, facilitated by the Health and Wellness Coach, as the aim of the Health and Wellness Coaching is to make the program sustainable in the long run, with the client being equipped with enough resources, skills and knowledge during the coaching process, to lead a fitter and active lifestyle and seek the results they desire.
