A lot of important decisions concerning health and wellness are affected by hyperbolic discounting.
Hyperbolic discounting is when people unconsciously lean towards smaller, immediate rewards rather than larger rewards that may come later .
Health Coaches understand this idea and it is one of the reasons why long-term lifestyle change is so challenging.
Health Coaches know that when it comes to health behaviors, many people prioritize immediate gratification even though their choices do them no good in the long-term.
Here are some ways Health Coaches influence their clients to prioritize longer-term benefits and longer-term pay-offs.
Health Coaches help clients become aware of their biases so they may overcome them and stick with their long-term health goals.
Health Coaches assess needs, create a mutually agreed upon plan and provide encouragement and motivation.
As trusted and accessible healthcare professionals, Health Coaches provide regular accountability or reinforcement of long-term, quality of life choices.
Even with the trust and frequency unique to Health Coaching relationships, it is only by addressing the real problems that clients can take the appropriate steps to overcome them.
And there is no equivalent to the superior training and skills of Functional Diagnostic Nutrition® Practitioners. FDN training sets you apart from all other health and wellness coaches by helping you to identify the real physiological, bio-chemical and behavioral problems that will allow clients to improve overall health and well-being.
That is why Functional Diagnostic Nutrition® (FDN) practitioners are the most successful health coaches in health and wellness today.
And that’s it for this week’s Functional Diagnostic Nutrition® Vlog of the Week.
