Responding to someone negative doesn’t always mean you have to engage them, but if unavoidable, a sensible approach and intelligent communication is critical.
Whole-person wellness programs incorporate the 6 basic wellness dimensions: emotional, intellectual, physical, social, spiritual, and vocational.
Wellness is a popular buzz word these days that might seem to be based strictly on physical health, fitness and nutrition, but it is much more than this. It involves working with all facets of life, to keep balanced, healthy and happy.
There are six core areas of wellness that contribute to our overall level of wellness. To invest in wellness is to learn how to take practical steps towards making positive changes in an area of wellness that feels out of balance.
Each dimension of wellness directly affects happiness, quality of life and life satisfaction:
Wellness is the continual process of making choices towards a happier, more successful life.
But, how can people make positive choices for a better life if they don’t have enough knowledge about specifically what needs to change, or where to start?
The whole-person approach to wellness education acknowledges that people are multidimensional; made up of a complex combination of needs, wants, talents, skills and experiences.
Teaching the core dimensions of wellness empowers people to make the right choices for them, and inspires people take steps towards positive change.
As a result, higher-level wellness creates people who can more effectively contribute to society.

When I first started coaching I didn’t know what I wanted from the sessions but it became obvious the moment I started talking. I feel a lot clearer around the kind of working mother I want to be.

Coaching is a fantastic opportunity to learn who you are and what is important to you. To know that you are not alone with how you are feeling and that you can change this.
