Everyone knows what it feels like to have a vision or dream for their life which for whatever reason is unattainable and remains out of reach. But maybe all you have been missing in your efforts to succeed is a coach?
In sports, any athlete that has reached a high level of performance has had a coach behind them along the way. Those who achieve their dreams of greatness could not have done so without personalised coaching to give them the edge. Wellness coaches push people to find success and satisfaction from their job or lifestyle.
What is a PAM Life Wellness Coach?
A PAM Life coach can help you make progress towards positive change in your overall wellbeing. Unlike a nutritionist or physical therapist, who makes a specific diet and exercise suggestions, a wellness coach will help you make better general choices that fit your lifestyle. The journey to improved wellness begins with the process of creating a vision of what an ideal state of health and well-being would look like. This first step can be a difficult one but a wellness coach is on hand to offer advice, helping to make the best choices in your goal-setting process. A wellness coach will guide people towards their aims, helping to develop a healthy mindset and healthy habits, with encouragement and support every step of the way until they accomplish their goals.
Goals a PAM Life Coach Can Help You Achieve:
Losing a few pounds
Maintaining a calm and positive mindset
When Might I Need a Wellness Coach?
There are many ways in which a wellness coach can benefit you. Here are a few questions to get you thinking:
Do you have trouble sticking to health-related goals?
Are you always low on energy and motivation?
Do you need some guidance on moving forward in your career?
Do you struggle with work-life balance?
Do you find it difficult to prioritize your health?
Do you rarely let yourself relax?
Do you want to make healthy changes to your lifestyle but you’re not sure where to start?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, approaching a PAM Life wellness coach and taking advantage of the support and advice they can offer you for free would be a great option for you. Of course, there will be a requirement of your commitment and time, but the benefits that can be achieved can be beyond worth it.
How Do I Work with a Wellness Coach?
You can contact a PAM Life wellness coach directly through your PAM Life account using the live chat function. If a wellness coach is unavailable at the time you are online, you can leave a message which they will respond to. The wellness coach will chat with you about what it is you want to accomplish.
Through the questions your coach asks and by accessing your PAM Life wellness data, together you'll define your goals and identify the challenges that stand in your way. Then you'll outline the steps and action you'll need to take to achieve those goals.
The PAM Life wellness coach can then help you to configure your PAM Life platform so that you can quickly access the best online resources to work toward your goals. You might need to view one of the stress management video courses available or create scheduled tasks of your activities that when completed will take you closer to what it is you are trying to accomplish.
Personalised coaching can provide the support and inspiration needed to continue moving forward in the pursuit of your goals by acting as an accountability partner who will encourage you even when you feel on the verge of quitting.
If you are struggling with a health related illness or ailment, a wellness coach encourages you to recognise that living in harmony is about making healthy choices that positively impact mental, physical, and emotional wellbeing.
You'll work with a coach for as long as it takes to achieve your health and wellbeing goals. The time frame depends on your dedication and what you're hoping to accomplish.
What a Wellness Coach is Not
Wellness coaches are different from a psychotherapist, who are mental health care professionals with training in medicine, psychology, nursing, or social work. If you think that depression, anxiety, or other mental health problems may be getting in the way of reaching your goals, then you may want to talk with a professional counsellor before approaching a wellness coach.
PAM Life collects the metrics of a user’s core health measurements such as weight, blood pressure and BMI using a combination of self-entry or readings taken by the Health Genie kiosk. In some circumstances, consistent measurements which indicate that a PAM Life user may be in a high-risk category with some of their readings can be flagged up to a PAM Life coach which will trigger an intervention with the user. As many as 7 million people in the UK are living with undiagnosed high blood pressure, without knowing they are at risk. The proactive action of a wellness coach prevents the development of coronary heart disease and strokes.
