As always, we want our clients to be healthy. For most coaches, this means that we begin by inspiring clients toward end goals that support healthy lifestyles and behaviors. But many times, we overlook a few things.
Specifically, it is very easy to overlook our client’s homes and the surrounding environment when evaluating their health. How does this happen?
Maybe we are busy working on just parts of their lifestyle or health and wellness – but these are not all mutually exclusive; one of our biggest beliefs in coaching is to take a holistic approach to our client’s overall situation and this has to include a consideration of all things in their environments. For some, this means the green factor – in other words, how green is our client? How green is their home? What are their perceptions of being or going green, and what are yours?
For those who understand the basic premise of an eco-friendly lifestyle is overwhelming. They may believe the idea of green living means too much change or they may belief some of the myths that suggest green living is too expensive or it requires significant sacrifice on many fronts. But this is just not true.
Living green and having good green hygiene is not going to make someone give up their personal freedoms or change their lifestyle drastically. What green living IS, is an extension of healthy living – and this is something that all of our clients are seeking! And after all, as coaches, we are all on board with this thinking as a common goal.
Where Do We Begin?
Our mission is to put our clients on a pathway that supports making some reasonable changes to their daily routines that result in making their lifestyle and environment more eco-friendly. Some call this green living.
We don’t want to force an agenda of extreme measures at them, we want to ease them into making changes. Once we start our client on this journey, the resulting by-product of attending to their personal awareness to going green will move out into other areas, and ultimately, our planet as a whole will be better for it. At least, that is the goal. If you think about this in a profound manner, you’ll agree that we have our work cut out for us.
Has a client made the decision to take steps toward living green? Fortunately, we have provided coaches with some resources to help their clients make the most out of a healthy, green lifestyle. We want to make going green easier for our client, and we want to give you the tools and information to help guide you both toward a healthy lifestyle that requires we optimize our lifestyle toward the greener side of things.
