Health Promotion Model Basics

Let’s start on a positive note.

No matter what they did in the past, no matter what their mother, brother, or ex-insignificant other ever said, and no matter how many failed diets and exercise regimens haunt their past, your participants are not doomed to a lifetime of poor habits of health.

But if they keep doing what they’ve already done in the past, they’ll keep getting the same results they’ve been getting in the past. If that doesn’t sound so appealing, then you’ll need to guide them towards a different strategy. So let’s talk about how to make lifestyle change more effective and user-friendly.

Our health promotion model

How about we leverage the body’s biochemical activity and build on strengths, rather than fuss over weaknesses? For example, if a participant has a hard time managing her food intake, then food is her problem, not her solution!  Guide her towards improving other health behaviors, ones she’s interested in, something that will feel easier to her. Doing so will produce changes in her biochemical activity (like increase her serotonin, reduce her cortisol, etc), which will then make her food habits easier to tackle. You’ll be able to Health Promotion Modelbuild on initial victories, help her feel empowered, and really change how she perceives her capacity for change. She’ll talk about you as the super star who made it all possible, as a bonus!

At Smarts and Stamina, we give you concrete steps so you can use this concept in your coaching practice or wellness offer. Other bright users have found the process refreshing, and we are confident that you will as well!Need a hand with getting your participants to understand and use this philosophy? Our wellness workshops are tailor made just for that purpose!

“I love your approach, as well as the examples, activities, and videos you use to explain the concepts! I am very aligned with your health & wellness philosophy! I’m very excited to include the SaS Health Promotion Model into my practice. It fits really well into my business model and client journey.”
