When it comes to healthy behaviours, you probably know what you must do.
You just don’t do them.

You’re not alone.  Behaviour change is hard, but there are good reasons to keep on trying.  Adopting healthy behaviours today can help you feel your best tomorrow, and protect your brain and body in later years.

But how do you get beyond the obstacles between where you are now and where we want to be?

Join us during this Medcan webinar, when a registered nurse and clinical psychologist will discuss health coaching and sustainable behaviour change.

This discussion will cover:

  • The science of behaviour change: what works, what doesn’t
  • What is health coaching
  • How to get started on your own
  • When to seek external support

Successful change happens in stages. The process, when and how, is unique to every individual. Research shows that long-lasting change requires specific approaches and continuous support during every stage of change.  While there may be some people who can do this on their own, most people require a coach of some sort to keep them on track when moving forward. And, to be there when backtracking happens.
