asking us to take charge
guiding us in doing the mindful thinking and doing work that builds confidence
helping us define a higher purpose for wellness and uncover our natural impulse to be well
helping us tap into our innate fighting spirit
addressing mental and physical health together
helping us draw a personal wellness blueprint
helping us set realistic goals; small victories lay the foundation for self-efficacy
harnessing the strengths we need to overcome our obstacles
helping us view obstacles as opportunities to learn and grow
helping us build a support team
inspiring and challenging us to go beyond what we would do alone
