Give it a Break


SCROLL DOWN

Give it a Break


If heavy-duty diet and exercise were enough to make everyone feel awesome, I'd know hundreds of mellow folks who wouldn't change a thing about their bodies, schedules, or stress levels. But they aren't, and I don't. 

The truth is there are so many other factors that contribute to your health and happiness, and when you're putting your energy into work, family, and your big, beautiful dreams, adding in strenuous interval training and calorie cuts are only adding more stress into the mix. As much as we like to claim that our spin classes are so motivational and we really do love salads for lunch, our bodies have a hard time understanding the difference between a sprint on a bike and a sprint from a mountain lion, or a few weeks of "clean eating" and a famine. 

Excess stress leads to increased cortisol levels and inflammation, so it's no wonder most of us are struggling with our bodies, our sleep habits, and our anxiety—we aren't activating the powerful relaxation response that serves as the antidote to our passionate, driven modern lives.

Step Onto the Trail


Step Onto the Trail


Wildwood Coaching offers a 12-point system to get you on the trail from stressed out to blissed out in no time. My clients have access to creative tools that offer a practical road map to health that puts diet and exercise on the back burner while prioritizing time spent in nature, creative expression, body awareness, relationships, and rest. Best of all, one-on-one sessions can happen in a park or on a trail near you, so you can combine the accountability of health coaching with the multi-sensory benefits of  being outdoors.

Here's what you can look forward to with one-on-one coaching:

  • Finding personal growth through mindful contact with the natural world

  • Consciously creating home and work environments that soothe instead of stress

  • Truly respecting the power of rest and letting go, through proper sleep, breathing, and stillness

  • Recognizing your own agency in our health choices, careers, and relationships, and learning to ask for what you want

  • Acknowledging that food and movement are only one part of a healthy lifestyle, and prioritizing the whole spectrum of your life

  • Understanding that there are plenty of hours in a day when you’re honest about your priorities

  • Celebrating that you are naturally creative, resourceful, and whole
