Wellness: Rebekah Jackson on Occupational Therapy, Being a Health Coach, Running, Healthy Eating, Changing Habits, and the Mind, Body, Soul Connection

As we finish out Autism Awareness Month and begin Mental Health Awareness Month, many are feasting for Eid at the end of Ramadan. All Star Wars friends are hoping May the 4th will be with you, and yet we do not want to forget that Mother's Day is just around the corner. Mothers who work outside the home and do both paid and unpaid work really face impossible challenges toward wellness. However, there is hope.

As we begin our Wellness series, we have a guest on this episode who will remind us to be kind to ourselves, and give us practical tools that don't overwhelm us in the process.

Rebekah Jackson is a certified independent health coach and a business coach to other health coaches. She lost over 25 pounds in her health journey and has gained changes in her overall mindset in learning to live in long term optimal health and habits. From someone who used to believe that “running off the food” would make a difference to learning to fuel her body, mind, and spirit, she has learned that the journey to health is just that… a journey. 

Rebekah has coached over 100 people in the last year in their own health journey as they have pursued optimal health one healthy habit at a time and leads a team of 7 coaches in their businesses in caring for others and supporting them in their journey. 

Rebekah is also a licensed/certified occupational therapist and loves to incorporate this into her health coaching in order to support others in reaching and achieving the goals they never thought possible and enjoying the “habits and hobbies” that bring them joy. 

She’s a wife of almost 19 years, a mother to an energetic 9 year old and loves to run and try new recipes.
