Coronavirus (COVID-19): How A Health Coach Can Help
Updated: Mar 16, 2020
There is a lot of fear and hysteria circulating around the Coronavirus in the U.S., right now. Have you seen the posts on social media? I know I sure have. While the full extent of COVID-19's global impact is yet unknown, it's a good idea to take precautionary measures to protect yourself and your loved ones. However, I’m here to tell you that hoarding toilet paper will not help you, but here is what will.
First, it's important to stay updated on health guidelines from trusted organizations like the World Health Organization, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention or Public Health Emergency. Ensure you're getting information from reliable sources to avoid spreading misinformation.
CDC recommends that for the next 8 weeks, organizers cancel or postpone in-person events that consist of 50 people or more throughout the U.S. While hospitals and governments work to keep people healthy and safe, many businesses like ours are continuing to provide customers with what they need during this period.
Fortunately, I can still provide health coaching services from my home, online. Lifestyle changes we encourage every day will not only boost immunity, but can create long term health gains. Here are some tips to help you stay healthy.
