  • What are your stress and wellness levels?
  • Will they cause you to die young or at least underperform and reduce your quality of life?

“Health is not valued till sickness comes.”

Dr. Thomas Fuller, British Physician

1654 – 1734

Health – The condition of being sound in body, mind, or spirit, especially freedom from physical disease or pain; the general condition of the body; general condition or state; a toast to someone’s health or prosperity

Stress – A physical, chemical, or emotional factor that causes bodily or mental tension and may be a factor in disease causation; a state resulting from a stress, especially one of bodily or mental tension resulting from factors that tend to alter an existent equilibrium

Coaching involves developing and addressing the Whole Person and that includes the health and wellness levels of our clients. If they struggle with high levels of stress and poor health practices, it won’t matter that we have helped them get clear about their purpose, coached them to be better leaders, or purged them of past hurts.
