Individualizing Wellness Through Coaching


“Wellness is the experience of living life with high levels of awareness, conscious choice, self-acceptance, interconnectedness, love, meaning and purpose. Wellness is the individual’s life journey (and our society’s larger task) of taking Abraham Maslow’s concept of Self-Actualization and applying it to mind, body, spirit and our interconnectedness with other people and our environment.”
– Michael Arloski, Ph.D.PCC, CWP

It’s a proven fact that it is much easier–and less expensive–to stay healthy than to get healthy. With that in mind, more and more organizations are looking for ways to keep employees, client or patients healthy–both mentally and physically. Well over 50% of diseases and illnesses, and 90% of injuries are caused by the risky behavior choices we make. These behaviors, therefore, are the primary drivers of poor health, and its negative personal and business consequences. The good news is that these behaviors can be prevented or improved. In fact, improvement in personal lifestyle offers the most viable opportunity to accomplish substantial and sustained improvement in overall health. That’s why Real Balance Global Wellness Services, Inc. focuses on building healthier populations by improving lifestyle behaviors.

As health care costs skyrocket and the health of our nation suffers, it has become evident that wellness is an individual and personal matter. Each person needs to assess their individual life style to determine their health risks and with the support of a wellness coach develop a plan for their health.

Research demonstrates the value of modifying health choices based on the individual’s stage of readiness to change. Designed to include the stages of change model (Prochaska & DiClemente, 1998), our Wellness Mapping 360°™ model helps participants move along the continuum of change from not thinking about change to taking action and maintaining change. Prochaska & DiClements, 1998

“If you can: create a climate where positive change can occur, maintain motivation, turn setbacks into progress, and make new beneficial habits to replace the ones eliminated, change will occur.”
