WISE UP to your health in 2024

Happy New Year from the Wellness Improvement Service team.

We are now well into January and many of us would have prepared our list of New Year’s health resolutions where we set plans to embark on a journey of self-improvement to enjoy a healthier lifestyle.

Yet, as we all know, these resolutions tend to wane after a few weeks as they often lack the depth and personal connection needed for lasting change – they can leave us feeling trapped in a cycle of unfulfilled promises and yearning for more meaningful and lasting transformation.

So, how do we move beyond the fleeting nature of resolutions and truly commit to improving our long-term physical and mental well-being?

Embracing a Holistic Lifestyle Medicine Programme

Rather than focusing on isolated changes, a holistic lifestyle medicine programme encourages us to view our health thoroughly. It's about making choices that align with our unique needs and values.

This isn't about quick fixes or temporary changes - genuine change is a gradual process requiring patience and a willingness to explore what works best for us as individuals.

You don't have to navigate this journey alone.

At the forefront of this approach is the Coach-Led Wellness Improvement Service (WISE), a dynamic system anchored in lifestyle medicine and the empowering practice of self-management.

WISE offers professional wellness coaching in group settings, providing knowledge and support to participants for more informed decision-making regarding physical and mental health.
