A Message From Shari..
Welcome to Coach Shari LLC. It’s a great day to begin New Habits!
Why choose Coach Shari, New Habits, New Life ℠ to help you make healthy changes?
Hi! My name is Shari Wildman Palmateer, a Nutrition Consultant, Nutrition Coach, Health and Wellness Coach in Springfield, New Jersey. I decided to embark on this challenging journey because of the opportunity to encourage you to live the healthy life you imagine! Life has taught me so many things, coming out the victor of both physical and emotional challenges along the way, giving me the foundation to help you conquer yours. I am here to guide you through the next step in your life, to make those changes that are important to you.
My goal is to help you uncover your priorities to improve your health whether it is to Ditch the Diet, Manage Stress, Increase Energy and Maximize Productivity, or any combination. With your vision mapped out, you’ll set your weekly goals to achieve that vision. Through weekly experiments or goals, you’ll see what is working and what is not—all leading you on the path of success!
This is not a cookie cutter program. Coaching with me is about you achieving your goals, in your time frame, based upon your successes. Uncovering your true motivation will be the journey, one where you will have my nonjudgmental, caring and empathetic support. Our time together will be spent exploring your journey to be your best self, most productive self, most healthy self!
What is Coaching?
Timing is everything and if you are looking at this website then you have taken the first step toward changing your lifestyle. Are you ready to make long term life changes?
In health coaching, there are no “prescriptions”, no one is going to tell you what to do!!! Your New Habits and New Life℠ are Yours.
The coaching process is based upon evidence that long term changes can only happen when you are fully empowered and motivated. What this means is that when you are given a “prescription” to change your life, for the majority of people, it usually does not serve to motivate the lifestyle change the person knows they need to make. Even when the consequences are huge like heart surgery, obesity or even loss of life.
In coaching, you create the vision of what you want to be, the end game. Then we break it up into 3 month goals to give you something to strive for and then weekly goals/experiments/tasks. Success breeds success and as you see that you can do it, you’ll want to do more. AND if you have a set-back it won’t be a full-on failure, it will be a learning for how you might prevent it in the future. The process is on your hands, along with what you choose to do.
You are in charge and accountable for your vision, goals and achievements, at your pace. If you create business plans for work, then think of this as your Personal Business or Wellness Plan. The only difference is that you are completely empowered, no one is going to tell you that the goals are not big enough or the accomplishments. You are the judge.
