5 reasons you're still searching for wellness solutions

Updated: Oct 18

Are you constantly searching for the ultimate wellbeing solution? Here's some reasons why...

1. Your idea of 'wellness' is too narrow

There are so many wellness products and services in the marketplace now! It’s tempting to jump on the latest trend (remember paleo, before keto came along?!) to give it a go and see if it helps you reach your goals. Your wellness vision for yourself may be related to your physical health (often appearance), however, what's going to truly move you closer to wellbeing often needs to focus on the wider wellbeing picture (where the term 'holistic' comes from).

A Health Coach is trained to look at how your entire life is affecting your wellbeing and support you to make the necessary changes. Any new behaviours need to fit within your lifestyle and be enjoyable too or they simply won't 'stick' and the search will continue.

2. You believe the answer sits outside of you

It's normal to want others to have the answers for us - it's generally the model we're used to. We often ignore the part within ourselves that knows exactly what we need to do. Putting faith in others can be a scapegoat to excuse us from taking responsibility for ourselves – i.e. “that person didn’t help me”, “that program wasn’t any good” etc. If we get quiet and eliminate what’s getting in the way we will often know what we need for ourselves. You know yourself best. A Health Coach guides you through the discovery process, provides qualified information and provides accountability too.

3. You’re afraid of what you’ll find

What if you really examined your wellbeing in a holistic sense? Deep down do you believe that unhealthy habit is related to a difficult childhood? Or your job needs to change, or relationship? When will be the right time to address these issues? In 1 year, 5 years, 20 years? What will life be like if you don’t make any changes? More importantly, what's possible if you do get brave?

4. You need structure and accountability

Time is precious and change is hard, so when life gets extra challenging you stop looking after yourself and focus on everything else that needs to get done. Or do you self-sabotage and give up when you start seeing results? Without a plan, structure and accountability you find it hard to prioritize time for you, let alone make sense of all the wellness information 'out there' to work out what’s truly best for you.

5. Society's expectations

When you stop and think about it, societal norms place a huge amount of pressure on us to look and function a certain way. The expectations placed on women regarding appearance in particular can be time-consuming, expensive and a huge source of stress. Release some of this pressure by being more compassionate with yourself as you are and they’ll be a lot less ‘work’ to be done!
