- This week, I found some deep truths that interrupted almost all of my personal beliefs about health, the assumptions I made, and I thought to share those for you so you can do some introspection, too.
First, I realized that you can become – and are empowered to become – that you can take responsibility for your own health and wellness goals and choices. Nobody has to do it for you, you don’t have to be dependent on anyone else to do things for you, make decisions for you, or own your outcomes. Do you have any goals in these areas?
- Weight Management
- Chronic condition self management skills
- Energy levels
- Stress management skills
- Food choices
You can invest in yourself and retain a personal support health coach who can say the following:
I’m here to help you explore and identify the goals and health outcomes you want, and I’m here to support wellness changes and help you to be responsible for your own decisions and attaining your own goals – in other words, you own the goal and the work.
We are in a time when, by and large, people are becoming more and more unhealthy. Not only is this because of the processed-food-system, but also because trustworthy health and food information is hidden from us and hard to find.
What if you could escape the tyranny of confusion about dieting and nutrition? Here’s a disconnect that is hidden from us: All that great nutrition information purportedly in diet books is designed to sell you books, make you feel good a little while, and then fall right back into your old habits. Why?
Because the diet industry counts on your not having an internal sense of control!
They want you get excited, buy a book, sign up for some MLM diet business, buy products, fail at that, and do it all again. They want you to:
- not think for yourself,
- not listen to your body’s wisdom,
- ignore your own sense of internal validation and wisdom,
- not make your own decisions based on what you know, and
- keep buying their stuff.
Dietary theories, nutritional research and all the “ivory tower” stuff has very little to do with most people who live in a world of fast food, eating on the run, and existing on nutritionally depleted so-call “food,” that is tasteless and probably dangerous to your health.
Caring Conversations Inform & Heal
Your story has power, and your willingness to open up and be heard is empowering.
Your story yields insights and truths you may not know exist.
Dialogue about living, frustrations, and what health outcomes, emotional sticking points, and getting things out in the open is the secret tool to disrupt the intellect and the media messages around you.
Isn’t it time for you to hear your own Self?
I always recommend an expertly facilitated conversation to get started on your own path where you say “yes” to what matters to you, and “goodbye” to the bulk of what you have been told by those who want to keep you as a life long financial “customer.”
