What is ergonomics? 

Ergonomics is the science of designing the job and workplace to fit the worker rather than the other way around. Ergonomics looks at how we go about our everyday tasks and the equipment we use, and provides solutions that minimize the risk of injury or harm and increases comfort and productivity.

Currently, I don’t experience pain.  Does ergonomics apply to me? 

Yes. Prevention is key. If we are not setting up our equipment and surroundings to fit our needs, chances are we will start to feel discomfort; a stiff neck at the end of the day, a sore back, wrist, shoulder, arm aches etc. These are all signals from our body that something is not aligned correctly. If we ignore warning signs, it will eventually lead to pain and potentially serious injury. Taking the time upfront to review and set up your space and equipment will save a lot of time and expense down the road.

What Does a Health Coach Do?

A certified health coach helps others achieve their health and wellness goals by providing science-based trusted information, positive encouragement, and continued motivation.

Why Should You Use a Health Coach?

One of the main reasons people need a health coach is ambivalence. Usually people know what they need to do, yet struggle with other factors which prevents them from reaching their health goal. Health coaching leads to statically significant improvements in weight management, physical activity, and mental health status. A good health coach will take time to get to know you, understand your goals and will help formulate a plan to move you towards these goals. The right coach will guide you to make well defined, measurable goals and will keep you on the right track by holding you accountable to making forward progress.

On average, more than two months is required to successfully make behavioral change. Health coaching is structured to provide the necessary time to be successful at behavioral change.

One of the great things about health coaching is that it can be effectively accomplished via telephone, on line or video chat so clients should not be concerned about geographical limitations.
