Taking Care of Yourself to Support Others


This week's #StoryofSuccess highlights the value and importance in taking care of yourself to better support and take care of others. And it never hurts to "just try it out!" #HealthTransformation#ChangingLives#TogetherStrong


This TrestleTree participant had significant amount of stress in her life while engaged in the health coaching program. She spent most of her time focused on helping others and found little time for herself or her own health. She and her Health Coach focused on lifestyle behaviors, such as exercise and nutrition, to identify opportunities to make positive steps toward improved health, all while managing her stress. They worked together to implement changes that fit her lifestyle, along with the motto, “just try it out.” The participant is loving the changes toward a healthier lifestyle and plans to maintain her new habits. With regular yoga practice and the goal to run a 5K, she celebrates each progressive step and recognizes how focusing on herself is bearing fruits for her health and for others!
