    Ask your client what small step along the journey feels good to them!!! Yes wellness feels awesome and they must believe that so starting the conversation framed so positively not only empowers them because THEY are choosing themselves but already you’ve planted the expectation it will FEEL good! Brilliant as alway! So love your pearls. May I take this moment to say how grateful I am for your content, wisdom and generosity in sharing information and resources. YOU are certainly a team player and in the playbook of so many people who you teach and then all those you they teach! Happy Thanksgiving, Happy Holidays and blessings to you!

    Bless Tracy for telling us not to try to impress with our “perfect health” and be more accessible! It will help me!!

    Heather Lowe says:

    I loved the simple reminder on asking the patient: What step to create a healthier xxx feels good for you? Because if what I say doesn’t resonate with them – it won’t matter. It needs to be something special in their life like the ritual of having a glass of wine with their spouse; just make it a little healthier with what works for them.

    Love the visual cues! Tangible “to do’s “are an easy first step.
    Thanks for sharing your wisdom!

    Oh yes I love this! Start where the patient is at! It takes creativity and your ideas are
    So helpful. I have several patients with a coke/Pepsi addiction and would love some tips
    On how to help them with this. Obesity is a huge issue! Thanks for all you do!

    I’ve not heard of this Miyoko Butter (substitute) great for my clients who LOVE butter. The Miracle Noodles too for my pasta addicts. Thank you for ALL your Pearls! I am learning so very much! YOU are a Pearl!

    Cindy says:

    I loved the low key and small step changes we can help our clients to make, rather than big and difficult to sustain ones. Dancing while cleaning! I love dancing while washing up too!

    I love helping my clients to add a little healthy change to their daily ritual, so that it will sustain. Like a little deep belly breathing session before a meal to enhance eating hygiene. Thanks so much for sharing, Tracy!
