Why does health sometimes feel overwhelming?
"Get Healthy" information overload is real is our culture especially with all of the contradictory information buzzing around.
To help decrease the overwhelm, do you have your:
- definite destination
- long term success plan
- SMART mini-goals
- circle of support
- a partner to guide and to help you steer around obstacles ?
If no, consider how deeply you want to change your life.
Working with a coach helps you stay the course until you've reached your future healthier you!
What does a Health Coach do?
-Ask powerful questions to help you determine with definite clarity what level of healthy you want to be on Dec 1, 2021 (or any date you choose).
-Organize your outline of how to move forward towards your definite goal with mini-goals.
-Cheer you on.
-Create (together) your next action step to put in your calendar so you know you are moving your health forward, at a minimum, every week.

Coaching Moments: Lifestyle Changes
I'm here to help you navigate across the full arc of your health journey employing both mind and body.
Let's say you...
- have questions about how to put into action your Primary Care Doctor's directions to make lifestyle changes (to lose weight, eat better, get more sleep).
I will help you understand and explore more fully the possible routes to take. I will also help you choose the best right next action for you to get started immediately and longer term.
- feel nervous about having an MRI or your next mammogram.
I will help you prepare and feel ready and calm. Prepare for Medical Tests
- feeling unsettled after all that 2020 brought
I will help you lessen anxiety and start uncovering what a better more calm and vibrant life looks like for you.
- trying to wean off a medication or welcome in a new one.
I will help you visualize and work towards that goal. You may needed the added support of a nutritionist or another professional. And we'll work towards that as well.
I both educate and lead you through the change process and empower you to choose your best path forward.
Seriously, coaches are game changers.
How long does IT take?
IT, I'm guessing, refers to the CHANGE you desire.
Long-term change takes practice and time and support.
Short-term change is right around the corner...
By the time we hang up the phone, or end Zoom, after a Peggy Huddleston Reduce Anxiety and Insomnia workshop:
95% of my clients report a drop in their anxiety levels.
A study at Beth Israel Deaconness Medical Center, a Harvard Medical School teaching hospital, documented that patients listening for 48 hours, twice daily to the Heal Faster(TM) relaxation/healing MP3 (the same one you will use with me) showed:
- reduction in anxiety
- used less medication for anxiety
- significant improvement in heart rate variability
If you are looking for long-term, sustainable change then you're on the right track hiring a coach.
The book Change or Die studied people with life-threatening cardiovascular disease. Most people changed their ways and habit patterns to healthier for 30 - 42 days.
After those 4-6 weeks most people, (over 90%!) go back to their old lifestyle habits that helped cause the disease initially.
Long-term change calls for a circle of support.
Of those who gathered a ring of support around them, 72% sustained change for 3 years!!
What type of change are you looking for? Short, long, undecided or life long?
Your answer points you to your next step forward...
What can I expect during a Q & A / INTRO session?
We will get to know each other, discuss which parts of your health (physical and/or emotional) you feel happy with and which parts, not so much. Talk briefly about what you want for your health. Then we will brainstorm at least two different paths forward to the healthier, more vibrant you, that you desire.
I can help...but only if you reach out. You can text/call/schedule online.
