Free Health & Wellness Coaching


Military Spouse Resource Highlight – Free Health & Wellness Coaching

I wanted to share some awesome information from a website I value greatly, one in which I feel may be underutilized as a resource for military members and their families.  It wasn’t until about 2 years ago I learned about Military OneSource.

There is SO much incredible and useful information on this site. I will admit, it can be somewhat overwhelming to sift through if you’re not looking for something particular, so I thought I would share one of my favorite resources.

Today, I wanted to highlight the Free Health & Wellness Coaching section on the Military OneSource website.  You’re eligible to use this program if you are active duty, national guard, reservist, or an immediate family member of the aforementioned service members.  This means military spouses can use this service!

The article on Military OneSource states:
“Health and wellness coaches provide information, support, encouragement and accountability on specific topics including:

  • Weight management

  • Fitness

  • Nutrition

  • Health condition management

  • Stress management

  • Life transitions

Having a plan can sometimes make major adjustments and life changes easier. A Military OneSource health and wellness coach can help you make a plan before or during those life transitions when you’re adapting to changes such as deployment, moving, becoming a new parent or retirement.”

This is such an invaluable opportunity to take advantage of, and I say that from the standpoint of being a health and fitness coach.  If you’ve been struggling in any of these areas, I highly encourage you to take a leap and utilize health & wellness coaching; having a professional there to help you reach your goals is pivotal… and at no cost, is unheard of.

Beyond the free-of-charge price point, just having someone there to ease the stress of life transitions (because transitions are inevitable and happen frequently) and who understands the uniqueness of this military lifestyle can truly be a game-changer.

Believe me, as a military spouse, mom, coach, etc., I often feel like I carry the weight of the world on my shoulders with relocation stresses, prolonged periods of single-parent operations, while maintaining my work routine, etc. The struggle IS REAL, and although I like to be the strong, capable woman I am, I also have learned this life is a marathon and it’s more than acceptable to ask for help and to use the amazing resources we have.
