The International Coaching Federation describes professional coaching as the process of “partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential.” In the business world this is a collaboration through which employees and managers can develop new skills, create a clear career path and improve their performance with the help of a certified coach.
Work / Life Balance
Work-life balance is an important aspect of a healthy work environment. Maintaining work-life balance helps reduce stress and helps prevent burnout in the workplace. Chronic stress is one of the most common health issues in the workplace. It can lead to physical consequences such as hypertension, digestive troubles, chronic aches and pains and heart problems. Chronic stress can also negatively impact mental health because it’s linked to a higher risk of depression, anxiety and insomnia.
Your lifestyle includes any choice or action you make that influences your life in some small way. Taken together, these choices and actions reflect your attitude and values. During a wellness programme, you’ll be encouraged to make changes to your lifestyle. While medications can help you lose weight, overcome pain and reduce some symptoms of ageing, making changes to your lifestyle will allow you to maintain those benefits long-term.
Lifestyle changes are behaviour modifications or habit changes that encourage positive changes in your life. These are a fundamental component to any wellness program. Examples of lifestyle habits include:
- Sleeping patterns
- Eating tendencies
- Level of physical activity
- Stress management practices
- Hydration habits
Making changes to these habits can create lasting effects on your personal well-being. The foods you eat, the amount of sleep you get, and your exercise habits can all influence your weight, hormone health and level of pain.
Effective stress management helps you break the hold stress has on your life, so you can be happier, healthier, and more productive. The ultimate goal is a balanced life, with time for work, relationships, relaxation, and fun—and the resilience to hold up under pressure and meet challenges head on. But stress management is not one-size-fits-all. That’s why it’s important to experiment and find out what works best for you.
