What is Wellness Coaching?
While the term “health” is generally associated with Wellness, it is a totally different construct when used within the paradigm of Wellness coaching. Within the Wellness coaching model, “Wellness” is concerned more with the mind-body or holistic approach to health, including such things as happiness in one’s job or career, or making enough money to live a desired lifestyle; or feeling the need for more support from family, friends, spouse or significant other; or even dealing with an emotional or spiritual unhappiness that seems to sustain you like the closest friend?
Wellness coaching is based upon the science of positive psychology, the science of what makes life worth living and the building of the circumstances that will enable one to live a life filled with meaning, purpose and happiness. Moreover, “Wellness coaching used to focus on helping individuals cope with one particular disease, while Life coaching was reserved for busy executives. But now it’s more mainstream for anyone.” Find out more about how Wellness Coaching can help you change your life by clicking on the links below:
Have you expended a great deal of energy to change and grow in any of these areas, succeeding in some areas but failing miserably in others? Have you reached out to others for help, only to shrink back into that shell of aloneness?
Now imagine that your Wellness coach is someone who stands ready to listen, to hear and to understand you. Someone that will work with you to help you navigate the road ahead, that at times, appears seemingly insurmountable. Someone who will help you to see and embrace your strengths as well as to bravely confront your fears. Someone who is equipped with the tools that will help you to take stock of your life, that are proven and effective methods for change.
As described above, the term “Wellness” means so much more than being physically healthy, it involves the whole person, not just their eating habits or body fat ratios. It involves their feelings about life, love and the pursuit of happiness including emotional, intellectual, occupational, spiritual, and financial health and so much more.
Wellness is everything about living well in a very conscious way. According to the National Wellness Institute, “Wellness is a process of becoming aware of and making choices toward a more successful existence”. In other words, Wellness is the experience of living life with high levels of awareness, conscious choice, self-acceptance, interconnectedness, love, meaning and purpose . . . everything you do, every decision you make, every thought you think, and every attitude and belief you hold affects your health and wellness. Wellness then becomes your individual life’s journey.
Wellness also includes feelings of self-worth and a belief that change is possible. Let’s see how you are feeling about your life today. Please click the following link and take the short quiz to find out www.positivityratio.com

The process toward Wellness includes identifying the reasons that you are not happy or making healthy choices and working to eliminate those obstacles while also creating new habits and opportunities that move you toward the ideal life that you desire.
Thus, Wellness coaching is about helping you to recognize and remedy what may be holding you back from achieving a desired goal or lifelong dream. It’s about helping you to figure out what motivates you and what will help you to make the desired lifestyle changes now as well as to sustain the new lifestyle changes in the future. It’s about helping you to engage, implement and achieve a more successful existence. It’s about helping you to connect the dots between who you are now and who you want to be.
Finally, your Wellness coach is your mentor, guide, sounding board and cheering section that will walk with you every step of the way, keeping you aligned with the new Wellness path that you have chosen.
