I have exciting news for you: January 12-18th has been made National Health Coach Week! This is a wonderful way to acknowledge Health Coaches for their everyday work to improve the health and happiness of the world, and for the visibility and viability of the profession. The demand for Health Coaches is huge, as noted by U.S. Representative Time Ryan:
“The United States faces a health crisis due in large part to the prevalence of costly chronic conditions, which are largely brought on by poor lifestyle choices . . . It is vital that Health and Wellness Coaches continue to expand their good work, the nation needs it . . . I want to congratulate the progress made by Health and Wellness Coaches and wish them the best during National Health and Wellness Coach Week.”
