Life Management Coaching
What is Life Management Coaching?
Life Management Coaching provides a professionally trained person to help you learn what your true purpose in life is…and strive toward it. Maybe you want to get better organized at home or in your office at work. Perhaps you are new to using a day planner to help you keep track of weekly tasks. Maybe you feel constantly overwhelmed or depressed and you’ve decided you’ve had enough. You want the energy and vitality you had years ago. That’s what we can help you with!
By addressing personal road blocks, a management coach is able to help you clarify your present reality (where you are right now), set attainable goals (to keep you moving forward), and help you break down those negative habits that cause you to stay stuck and block your path to success.
How can Life Management Coaching help me succeed?
The answer is yes! A good management coach combines experience, active listening, motivational support, accountability, objective perspective and insight into the coaching experience. As a Health Coach, I am trained to help you discover your full potential through these four steps:
- Identify and analyze barriers, obstacles and challenges
- Create a vision or roadmap for what you want
- Devise plans of action to achieve specific outcomes
- Foster continued awareness and accountability to maximize productivity
Sick care vs. health care – the big difference!
As the Boston Globe stated in an article in 2012, “The foundation of our current health care system is the treatment of illness and disease rather than the promotion of good health.” It goes on to suggest that if we want to prevent conditions such as type II Diabetes, heart disease, obesity and certain cancers, then we need to create “the conditions to make it possible for people to take better care of themselves”.
Within a “sick-care” system, doctors make the decisions for us. Their education teaches and prepares them to isolate a problem and treat it. That may mean suggesting other specialists, surgery, medications or lifestyle changes. After their short visit, the patient returns home to manage their illness, oftentimes with medications designed to suppress or heal the symptoms. But wait! Does anyone talk about what caused the problems in the first place?
In a “health-care” system, individuals make a choice to take their health in their own hands. They learn how to listen to and monitor their bodies, noticing subtle changes in how they feel overall each day. The body is given the ability to heal from within with support and guidance. Tracking of food, exercise, sleep and positive relationships are a daily norm. They understand how quality diet and regular exercise combine to boosts the immune system, extend the quality of life AND even reverse disease!! So, this whole-body approach helps the individual recognize red flags and define the triggers causing the discomfort. Together, with the help of a team of holistic/alternative wellness advocates, you find causes, treat them and end habitual cycles that create disease. Your body is your temple…and you have a choice!
