As January winds down and February begins, the appeal and excitement of New Year’s resolutions wane. Whether due to time constraints, distractions, lack of results or competing priorities, it becomes harder and harder to find motivation during these cold winter months.
So what can be done to combat this common problem? Talking with a YMCA Wellness Coach may be the answer!
The Y’s Wellness Coach Sessions are included at no additional cost as part of your membership. Your Wellness Coach will ask questions to help you determine realistic health goals and provide guidance in mapping out a plan to achieve those goals.
This member-focused meeting can also be a source of accountability. Studies have shown that people are more likely to accomplish what they set out to do if they share their goals with others. Our free Wellness Coaching Sessions can be a great way to stay on track in your journey towards a healthier lifestyle because there’s no limit to the number of meetings you can have. We think it’s a win-win situation!
