Behaviour Change Workshops
Change – One Step at a Time
If you could guarantee healthy behaviour change with every person
that you worked with, you would be the most sought after person in
the health profession. Poor attitudes around healthy lifestyle choices
and the lack of encouragement and advocacy to adopting these healthy
practices are widespread. This workshop delves into the rationale
behind behavioral theory, why behaviour change can work and how to
put it into action! As Mark Twain once said “Habits are not to be
flung out the window, but coaxed down the stairs one step at a time.”
We all seem to know the man at the end of the street that lived to
94, smoking, drinking, eating fried eggs and bacon every morning…so
we figure we can do it too…..little did we know that he was blessed
with a superior genetic predisposition to old age! It is likely that
our poor attitudes around healthy lifestyle choices is what predisposes
us to disease in the first place - here are the seven top killers
in Canada and advice on how to avoid them with lifestyle changes.
Three Ways to Lose Weight This Morning!
Why do some people lose more weight then others on the same weight
loss program? And why is it that some inactive people eat anything
they want and never gain any weight while others scrimp on calories,
exercise like crazy and never lose a pound? While there is nothing
magical about body weight regulation, myths and misconceptions abound.
Participants will explore the intricacies of their personal energy
balance and body composition and learn how to manage the twin pillars
of an effective long-term approach to a power-fueled weight for optimal
health and performance. Eat breakfast, get a morning workout and plan
your day! We’ll show you how these three add up to a healthier happier
you – all it takes is a plan and some action!
