Free Health Coaching Helps Texas Families Live Healthier

Healthy living isn’t easy. It requires daily commitment. Whether it is striving to eat right, exercise or follow doctors’ orders, there are some days when it’s just tough. But rather than be discouraged, those difficult days are the perfect time to call a Living Healthier coach for a free, uplifting phone consultation to help you stay on track.

This toll-free service -- offered through the Texas-based nonprofit organization It’s Time Texas and funded in part by Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas -- is available to anyone by calling: 1 (844) 262-6224. Living Healthier coaches take calls in English and Spanish, weekdays from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. CT. Clients may call as often as they like and there is never a charge.

“If somebody wants to make life changes, like eating healthier or exercising more, sometimes they just need the extra help and that’s where we come in. As a phone health coach, we provide the support for the steps they take. And we do this in a very compassionate manner,” said Hector Gonzalez, a bilingual Living Healthier Coach for It’s Time Texas, based in Austin.
