Anyone who has worked with a young child has probably been asked many questions. Some are easy to answer; What’s your favorite color?” Some are more complex; “Where does the rain come from?” Then there are some questions that are so complicated they don’t have clear cut answers.
It’s sometimes hard to tell a child, who expects you — the adult — to have all the answers, that you just don’t know. It can be tempting to deflect the question rather than see that disappointed look in their eyes when you can’t produce an answer. However, it’s important for children to realize that we are still figuring some things out. There are still opportunities to learn and grow—even when we’re adults.
As we all hear over and over again, these are unprecedented times. I will be the first to admit that I don’t know how these unprecedented times have affected you, my dear reader. Maybe you are struggling to maintain the healthy habits you developed before COVID-19 or maybe during COVID-19 you decided it was time to make your health a priority. If either of those resonate with you, it might be time to ask for some help. A health coach or fitness professional likely won’t have all the answers, because bodies are complicated. However, they may be able to help to guide and support you along your journey to a healthier body.
