What you DO determines what you will BE which determines what you will HAVE 

What Is Good Health As You Age?

The World Health Organization defines health as a state of complete physical, mental and social wellbeing and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. 

For most people good health means;

  • Having enough energy to get through the day

  • Being a healthy weight and body fat

  • Being fit and strong

  • Not being sick and unwell

  • Mentally strong

  • Enjoying life to the fullest 

For many people wanting good health and then sustaining it as they age is challenging.

 

In a world where the main focus is on treating poor health and not preventing it in the first place, becoming and staying healthy is beyond most people.   

The three most important things anyone can do to improve their health are the following;

  • Creating the right mindset so you are mentally capable for the changes needed

  • Building the right environment so there are fewer barriers stopping change from happening

  • Following the right plan so you end up implementing the right changes at the right time

There is more to improving your health than just changing your nutrition and exercise. It comes down to your ability to make and then sustain life changes.

If you can learn to do that, then you will achieve a lifetime of good health.

Why People Don't Achieve Good Health

The number one reason people don't achieve the health they want is down to not being able to follow a set of actions over a prolonged period of time. In other words, they give up.

People who do succeed are able to become highly consistent in doing the things needed to achieve their goals. They were willing to push through the discomfort that comes from change and stay on track long enough to get to the end.

These people don't have any special powers. They just learnt the skills needed to increase their habit consistency, received the right amount and type of support to help them stay focused and built an environment that made their journey easier.

 

If this is something you would like to learn too, then carry on reading and I will show you how you can achieve good health in very easy steps. 

Life Performance & Habit Coaching

For any goal to be achieved specific actions need to be consistently followed.

 

  • If you want to improve your health, then you need to consistently eat only natural foods.

 

  • If you want to become fitter, then you need to be consistently physically active every day.

 

  •  If you want to succeed in your career, then you need to consistently show up on time and perform.

 

  • If you want rewarding relationships, then you need to consistently develop compassion and understanding of others.

 

So why is it most people don't end up succeeding in what they set out to achieve?

What Is

Health Coaching?

Health Coaching will help you move forward in all aspects of your life, by teaching you the skills and tools required to improve your physical and mental well-being. 

For any goal to be achieved specific actions need to be consistently followed.

 

  • If you want to improve your health, then you need to consistently eat only natural foods.

 

  • If you want to become fitter, then you need to be consistently physically active every day.

 

  •  If you want to succeed in your career, then you need to consistently show up on time and perform.

 

  • If you want rewarding relationships, then you need to consistently develop compassion and understanding of others.

 

So why is it most people don't end up succeeding in being consistent when it comes to performing the actions they know they need to do?

 

Habits and behaviours have to be specific to your goals, skills and ability and you have to develop perseverance and a certain mindset to achieve a high level of consistency and push through the discomfort that you will experience from making the necessary changes in your life.

 

As a Health Coach, I specialise in helping my clients build, and then follow successfully, the right habits and behaviours required for them to succeed in any goal they have set out to achieve, and work with them through the difficulties and challenges that brings.

My coaching will provide you with the following:

 

1. Help you with choosing the right habit and behaviours to follow in achieving your goals

2. Accountability to help you consistently implement those habits and behaviours on a daily basis

3. Nutrition, exercise and lifestyle plans that are easy to implement and sustain

4. Coaching feedback on what you are doing well and areas where you can improve

 

5. A personalised habit tracking app to help you measure your progress when it comes to improving your nutrition, exercise, hydration, sleep and stress and keeps you on course in achieving good physical and mental health

6. Coaching lessons on areas such as nutrition, exercise, stress reduction, sleep, and creating the right positive mindset needed to achieve your goals

7. I will work with you every step of the way until you have achieved what you want

 

 

What It Takes to be healthy as you age

The pillars of good health are nutrition, fitness, lifestyle and behaviour. When all four are working in unison optimal health can be achieved at any age.

As your health coach, I will work with you in developing a very specific and personalised approach to the above areas, which you will find practical, easy and effective in implementing. 

By completing one or all four of the following nutrition, exercise, lifestyle and behaviour assessments I will be able to provide you with my recommendations on what actions and habits you can start following to improve your overall health and wellbeing.

I can then provide you with a personalised health plan designed for your specific needs and abilities. 

"Look after your body. It's the only place you have to live"

I can Help You eat Better As You Age

Most of us at some time in our life has taken an interest in the food we put in our body. We read or watched nutrition experts inform us on what is best for our bodies, health and mental wellbeing. You might have noticed that there are countless opinions on what you should eat, in what amount and how often. Not all of them are right, so which advice should you follow?

The honest answer is, at this stage, we don't know. How our bodies personally respond to nutrition is very individual and unique, because we are all unique. What works for one person will not work exactly the same for the next person. And as we age our nutrition requirements will change, and therefore we need to then change what we eat. It is a constantly evolving picture. 

The best way to find what works best for you when it comes to nutrition is to try different approaches. I call this approach 'self-experimentation'.  Try different things, see what results you get, if the result is not what you want, then change what you are doing. 

It could be that you heard, having fewer carbs in your diet leads to more weight loss? Give it a go. If it doesn't work inside 2-4 weeks, then that approach isn't right for you.

 

Then try something else. Keep trying until you find the strategy that works for you. And then stick to it. 

You will know when you have got the right nutrition approach when you consistently achieve the following;

- ideal energy throughout the day

- good mental clarity

- a healthy digestive system

- no mood swings

- high level of physical and mental performance

As your health coach, I will work with you in developing your unique and individual nutrition plan. With my 20+ years of experience in nutrition coaching, I will show you how to improve your health through nutrition in the easiest and quickest way.

 

When we do find the right nutrition plan for you, I will then support you in keeping to it on a consistent basis. Because the most successful nutrition plans are the ones you can consistently do day after day.

I can Help You stay fit & strong as you age

Exercising as you age requires a different approach than when you were younger. It has to be more encompassing of all areas of physical fitness than focusing on just one or two areas.

The two most important areas of fitness you need to keep improving and maintaining as you age are cardiovascular (heart and lunges) and muscular (muscles, ligaments and joints). 

The better your heart and lunges function the longer you can stay active. The more muscle you can sustain the less injury, aches and pains you will experience.

Other areas of physical fitness that also need to be worked on and maintained as you age are:

Mobility & Flexibility- improving your suppleness and movement efficiency 

 

Balance & Agility- improving your movement and confidence for everyday life

Quickness & Coordination- improving your ability to cope with the unexpected

 

As your health coach, I will work with you in designing the right type of training plan that covers all areas of physical fitness, taking into account your specific abilities, skills and needs. 

After designing your personalised training plan I will work with you in building a strong exercise consistency. Only when exercise consistency is developed will any plan be effective.

We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.

I can help you Sustain A Healthy Lifestyle as you age 

You can try to consume a healthy diet, you can try and exercise hard on a consistent basis, but if you don't get your lifestyle right, you will struggle to stick to healthy habits and behaviours.

How you manage your day will determine how well you can implement the necessary changes when it comes to nutrition and exercise.

 

How you manage your stress will determine if you have the mental and physical energy to cope.

 

How you manage your sleep will determine how well you recover and perform each day. 

So as you can see, your lifestyle plays a major role when it comes to implementing healthy habits and behaviours. If your lifestyle is making it hard for you to commit to certain actions on a daily basis, then any plan is going to be harder to keep to.

As your health coach, I will work with you in implementing the right time management, stress reduction and sleep habits that will make it easier for you to follow the right nutrition and exercise habits. 

Anything that makes your ability to stay consistent more challenging, needs to be addressed before we can focus on following the right nutrition and exercise plan.

I can help you stick to healthy behaviours as you age

The type of person you are will determine the actions you perform on a consistent basis. Either your behaviour will progress you or hold you back.

If your behaviour is not helping you, then the behaviour will need to change, otherwise, you will keep achieving what you have always achieved.

Any change is hard. Lasting change requires a certain mindset to get you through the challenges and discomfort that comes through the process of change.

Many of your behaviours are also influenced by your environment. The people you spend time with will influence your behaviour and the locations you spend most of your time in will also influence it. 

Do you find yourself eating certain foods when you are with certain friends?

Do you find that you end up taking the easy option when available e.g. taking the escalator instead of the stairs?

Or do you find that you are influenced by traditional or social media when it comes to certain choices more than sticking with what has worked for you in the past?

Understanding how your behaviours are influenced by what is around you will help you know what actions will need to be consistently followed, so you are able to achieve the health and wellbeing you want as you age.

As your health coach, I will help, advise and support you through the behavioural change that will be needed over the coming weeks. 

To understand what your current behaviours are, we first need to understand your personality and what makes you tick.

 

Complete my Personality Assessment and I will provide you with my feedback and recommendations on how to change your behaviour when it comes to improving your health and wellbeing as you age.

Your Coach

I have been working as a Health Coach for over two decades now, helping people from many backgrounds improve their overall health and well-being, achieve life goals and become more successful in their professional and personal lives. 

 

My coaching approach is a very client-centred one, placing each clients goals, wants, needs and desires at the heart of my coaching. I have only succeeded in my own life and business for so long because of the success of my clients. If they are not successful, then nor am I.

 

By having a very personalised coaching approach, my clients feel that I will work tirelessly in helping them achieve the goals they want and believe in what they want to achieve. For any coaching to work, there needs to be a very honest and trusting relationship between the coach and client. So instead of just providing coaching that is generic and like most of what is being offered, I work with only a small group of clients at a time, so I can provide the time and commitment as a coach and that is what I believe each of my clients needs to succeed. 

 

By helping 100’s of clients over the years, it is that experience that helps me succeed where many other coaches fail.

 

Yes, it is important to be highly qualified and recognised in the field of coaching, but it is the ability of a coach to implement what they know, which ultimately leads to a client being successful.

 

As your coach, I will bring a wealth of experience and knowledge to the coaching relationship. I have experienced what works and what doesn’t when it comes to creating and implementing the right coaching plan for my clients.

 
what my clients say

Sally

"As someone who has always struggled with my weight, I have tried all different types of nutrition plans and exercise routines. 

 

Only when I started to focus on improving my overall health did I start to see long-lasting results.

 

The coaching approach that Chris has is great for anyone who is limited in time but wants to eat well and enjoy exercising."

Erica

"I am a very active person and I like to try different types of exercise, but I have always struggled when it comes to knowing what's best to eat and following the right habits to living a healthy life.

 

The health education Chris provides is at a level that is easy to follow and understand."

Mike

"Before hiring Chris as my health coach, I struggled to maintain any regular exercise, nutrition or lifestyle routine.

 

By having a very personal approach, the coaching was specific in helping me implement the correct habits and behaviours that fitted in with my life and work commitments." 

Jennifer

“I have worked with Chris Deavin from myHealthCoach for the last 4 years. In this time, Chris was able to help me select and set up my daily habit improving my health & wellbeing. Chris was instrumental in providing me daily lessons and articles about the habits and how the proper amount of sleep, nutrition and exercise can affect the body as a whole.

 

He was very interactive with any comments I may have had or questions I had regarding the habits or the reference material he provided.

 

Since working with Chris I have improved my overall health & wellbeing. I happily recommend Chris to work with, he values your health and is highly competent in helping you reach your goals. 

Andrew

“I asked for help in reducing my stress and Chris suggested taking a few minutes each morning just to be still and reflect, linking this to my first cup of tea of the day.

 

His encouragement and helpful suggestions at the start have ensured that this has become a secure habit. 44 days since starting it’s now really easy to remember and has helped reduce my stress. ”

Liz

"Chris is very conscientious and encouraging as a coach.

 

He makes sure he knows what you aim to achieve, adapts accordingly, checks how you get on, gives encouragement, sends suggestions. He helps you keep going "
