Well, here we are at the beginning of March, OMG! Where does the time go? Seems like it was just Christmas.
I’m curious did you make a New Year’s resolutions this year? How did it turn out? Are you still committed to that resolution?
If you’re like most people, you didn’t get very far. In fact, only about 8% of people keep their New Years resolutions. That means that 92% of people fail! WOW! That’s a huge number.
There are so many reasons for this, but it can be summed up like this: Changing our behavior is hard, and most people don’t know how to do it successfully. As far as resolutions go, many people choose to focus on their health during the New Year. They want to lose weight, be more active for their family or just have more energy. Despite these important reasons for wanting to get healthy, the majority of people still fail.
This is a big problem because it is now clear that the number one cause of the chronic disease epidemic and the rise of obesity is not genetic, but behavioral – people are making the wrong choices about diet, physical activity, sleep and other lifestyle factors that impact their health.
Diabetes and obesity rates are on the rise among adults and children. Autoimmune diseases have also dramatically increased worldwide.
And a recent study showed that as a nation, 86% of our healthcare dollars are spent on the treatment of chronic diseases. Another study found that fewer than 5% of adults engage in top health behaviors, and only 20% of adults are thriving. WOW, only 20%?
WE DON’T NEED MORE INFORMATION – OR MORE DOCTORS – TO SOLVE THIS PROBLEM
It’s tempting to think that we can solve these health problems simply by better educating people about the health changes they need to make. Though knowledge alone is not enough to support lasting behavioral changes otherwise we would be doing it and we wouldn’t have all these health issues in the United States.
Most people know that eating badly, not exercising, not getting enough sleep and engaging in other unhealthy lifestyle habits are not good for them. But we continue these unhealthy behaviors anyway. Or we chase quick fixes that don’t last for more than a few weeks, such as a strict diet, counting calories, counting macros and a lot of restrictions and or even extreme exercise programs.
What about doctors? Shouldn’t they be the ones to lead this change?
Most Doctors don’t have the training or the time to help people in making behavioral changes that last. They tell you to lose weight or change your diet, then send you on your way. You leave the Dr’s office with no clue how to make those changes.
If more information and more doctors won’t solve the problem, what will?
What’s THE SOLUTION?
A Health Coach
People want to feel good, avoid chronic disease and live a long happy life. They want to see their children and grandchildren grow up and have the energy to play with them. They want to perform better at work, enjoy their relationships, feel good in their body, and be healthy enough to get the most out of their life.
But there’s a big difference between wanting the benefits of being healthy and consistently doing the behaviors that lead to health and weight loss!
