Hi I'm Dr. Kim, your virtual wellness coach
I'm byte-sized (5-feet small) and so is my program. I created it that way with you mind. I get it. You're busy. Especially now. This pandemic lifestyle has made it even harder to find balance. Your butt and body are sore from sitting at the computer all day. Your brain suffers from Zoom burnout and TMI (too much information). You have no time or energy to take care of yourself because you're too busy taking care of others. And you just don't have the willpower or discipline to change your health habits. Because if you aren't "all in" you might as well do nothing.
My program will guide you through daily 5-minute micro-breaks and help you make healthy active living a lifelong habit. Progress from feeling stuck from pandemic stress and overwhelm to revitalized and resilient in 5-steps: self-care, healthy eating, sleep hygiene, exercise and mindfulness.
If you're a busy person wanting to prioritize health - without the overwhelm - 5 X your Health is for you!
For use at work and during virtual meeting and events.

Why Byte-Size Wellness with Dr. Kim?
I'm a health behavior scientist (Ph.D. from the University of Toronto where I was an adjunct professor), former National Cancer Institute of Canada postdoctoral fellow) and a knowledge translation expert.
My Byte-Size Wellness approach is the culmination of my 30-year research - academic career in exercise and health promotion, disease management, addictions and tobacco control. I worked at renowned teaching hospitals, published in peer-reviewed journals (google me!), consulted to pharmaceutical companies and health organizations, and taught chronic disease exercise classes.
When washing your hands frequently, know that you're in good hands. I understand what influences health behaviors and habits and what motivates people to change. I know what combination of evidence-based strategies and approaches are needed to help people develop lifelong healthy habits. It starts with shifting from an "all-or-nothing" mindset to a micro-step, micro-habit mindset and embracing wellness as a journey, a lifestyle, not a destination.
It's the small behaviors, the small changes in routines, when repeated consistently lead to healthy habits that have long-lasting results: More energy. Less stress. Improved self-esteem. More productive at work. Better work-life balance. Resilience. Agility. Vitality.
Tweaking one habit has a ripple effect, triggering positives changes in other inter-related health areas: diet, sleep, exercise, mindfulness and mental health. The benefits of byte-size wellness are cumulative - all steps, all bytes add up to a full meal!
I can't wait to hold your virtual hand and guide you along your road to wellness and becoming your own wellness coach!
