During a season of facing insurmountable stress in my life and when all healthy activity came to a grinding halt, I turned to a free health coach provided by It's Time Texas. When I felt the strangle hold of my obligations squeeze every bit of life out of me, Natalie, one of the great health coaches with It's Time Texas was the valve that provided me relief. Just talking with her her about my daily challenges gave solace to my soul. She helped me to see the reality that taking time for me would equip me to handle the stress. Deep down I believe that, but I wasn't living it. During this time she would randomly encourage me throughout the day to stop and take the time I needed to benefit me. She'd encourage me to take a fitness class, and I did. She helped me to see that I AM WORTH IT, even in the most demanding seasons of life when my vision is obstructed. I whole heartedly believe in the mission of It's Time Texas. The team there is ethical, smart, and passionate about health for all. There are not many organizations that are focused on health the way It's Time Texas is. Check them out!

My wife has experienced a difficult life healthy journey. This past year she has been working with It's Time Texas and it is amazing to see her light up at the prospect of helping others navigate a path to health and prosperity. She is more fully living her best life and she loves helping others do the same. It's Time Texas gives people and communities hope.

Texas is fortunate to have a nonprofit like ITS TIME TEXAS (ITT) that has been able to bring together the faith based community, business leaders, academic leaders, and lawmakers & staff to focus on the health of all Texans. With ITT covening such a diverse group of stakeholders, especially during the annual Healthier Texas Summit which has created a statewide movement to create healthier Texas. There are numerous programs that ITT has launched such as Texas Walks & the Community Challenge which has energized local entities - I highly encourage individuals to learn more about ITS TIME TEXAS and identify ways to engage their families, communities, and businesses for a Healthier Texas!

It's Time Texas is a fundamental organization for moving the Austin community forward. Making health education and other endless resources available and accessible to people with barriers can change an entire culture for the better! I would recommend their services to anyone I know!

It's Time Texas does so much great work aimed at empowering Texans to live healthier lives. Even more cool is the work they do at the community level and state level. We need more non profits that are looking at problems from so many different angles.

It's Time Texas is thinking about health solutions in a way that is unique to Texas and the health community. The team has identified a powerful and under-utilized area that will bring more and more voices into the conversation AND actually follow through with tangible impact. Excited to see where they go!
