Talking about Becoming a Mental Athlete
This week I sat down with life- and wellness-coach, Michaelene “Mike” Conner. She works with individuals and companies seeking to improve their mental focus, ability to enact positive change, and overall level of physical health. The art of well-coaching comes down to creating an environment for substantive and lasting life changes. These shifts in awareness happen through the engagement of collaboration, conversation, exploration and facilitation. It allows an individual to move from a current state of being towards a desired set of goals having to do with mental focus, health, fitness, energy and overall wellness. Conner’s coaching approach becomes the vehicle for guiding an individual to achieve a higher level of awareness and commitment to both physical and mental well-being.
Coach Conner will create a collaborative and co-creative environment in which the individual can explore their beliefs, behaviors, assumptions, visions and goals. She will assist the individual in connecting the dots between who they are and who they want to be, and to take the incremental behavioral steps that will enable them to succeed. Coach Conner is a credentialed health, fitness and mental health practitioner who coaches clients on evidence-based areas of wellness such as:
– Personal/Organizational change
– Physical activity
– Nutrition/Food and meal preparation
– Weight management/Sports nutrition
– Stress management
– Life satisfaction
Conner knows that everyone wants to be well, and everybody desires to be in control of his or her own health. She understands we want more energy to cope with today’s chaotic environment. Yet Conner recognizes that there is an enormous gap between wanting to be well and the everyday reality of living with the physical and mental consequences of our behaviors.
