For most us, being told to eat better and being handed a piece of paper with a list of new food options doesn’t get us to make that leap to change the way we eat.
That’s true when we need to move from a sedentary lifestyle to committing to walking a mile a day or taking up an exercise routine. Making behavioral life changes that are sustainable is hard. Otherwise, we’ll all just do it. You are not alone when it comes to resistance.
That’s where nurse coaching can make a difference – particularly if you are living with a chronic condition or facing an illness and these changes can reduce pain and maybe get out you out bed in the morning to face the day’s challenges.
