It was important for Christiana to set achievable goals. “I tried to set smart goals and was specific about them,” she says. “I knew it would not be realistic to lose 25 lbs. in six weeks, so I set the goal at 5 lbs. at a time.”
With this in mind, she embarked on a 6-week journey to lose weight.
With her coach’s guidance, Christiana focused on improving her mental health, nutrition and exercise habits. Christiana shared that coaching helped her to appreciate holistic wellness: She could see how mental health, nutrition and exercise all
worked together to support a healthier lifestyle.
Christiana’s Best Health coaching experience also helped her to realize the significance of self-care. It’s important for managers to remind their staff about the benefits of self-care, and to encourage them to care for themselves during the
work day, she emphasizes.
After six weeks of dedication, Christiana noticed improvements to her overall health and lifestyle.
“Christiana did such an incredible job of navigating her health and wellness during a very challenging time,” says Michelle. “She improved her Wellness Score, reduced several risk levels and met her weight loss goal all in just six weeks!
She has continued on with maintenance coaching and has sustained the healthy habits she put in place. It has been a pleasure to support her on her wellness journey to her best health!”
