Eastern Standard Time

The formation of new, health-promoting habits is key to sustaining lifestyle changes such as healthy eating, being active, managing stress, and self-monitoring. Through this 1.5 CE webinar, participants will learn the why behind healthy habit formation, and how coaches can support these changes through strategies like piggybacking, restructuring cues, supporting implementation plans, and building cognitive resilience.

The session will equip coaches with skills to guide their program participants from a self-control and willpower framework to one focused on creating and maintaining healthy routines. By integrating research with real-world coaching experience, this webinar helps coaches advance their skills so that program participants can sustain their self-care behaviors long-term.
