What It Means to Be a Health Coach

I’m a health coach and the value of a health coach is becoming exponentially bigger and bigger as this pandemic rolls along.

The medical system doesn’t always seem to have the answer to the things that are going on in our lives.

You may have probably had the same experience, but I relate it back to something I experienced in high school. I took psychology in my senior year and I really loved it. I was trying to figure out who the hell I was and kept wondering “what is my purpose on earth?”

FINDING MY PURPOSE BECOMMING A HEALTH COACH


Having a purpose is so important!  Currently, I run a group on Facebook with a thousand health coaches in there. And I’ve talked with a lot of them personally, and it’s almost without fail that every health coach, in fact, every doctor I’ve interviewed, have had almost an identical story.
  1. They were susceptible to illness and were trying to solve their own problems
  2. They had a parent that possibly died from one of the following:
    • cancer
    • heart disease
So it became a mission for them to go into health coaching, acupuncture, yoga, or any of these other alternative methods of maintaining good health.

ABOUT BEING A HEALTH COACH


Health coaching is a profession that is not licensed. It’s not regulated by the state, thank God. But we do become certified through study, exams, clinical, experience, and helping people. And the purpose, I always talk about purpose because the purpose of life is to have a purpose in your life. That’s one of the things that helps to keep you healthy, having a goal in front of you somewhere that you’re moving towards that gets you up in the morning and get you moving in the right direction so that you’re adding to the community, adding to the health of your family, adding to the happiness of others around you. I would say that pretty much sums it up, what it is for me to be a health coach. If you found the content useful, please like the video, subscribe, and click the little bell for notifications.
