Last year, we talked a lot about how in 2020, many things were outside of control – other than your mind, and your health.
This year, we’ve been hearing a lot of our clients talk about how they’re having road blocks when it comes to being able to be consistent.
The main reasons they’re reporting being inconsistent are:
- “I had a nagging injury that I had to stop activity for.”
- “The gym closed and I was too busy to come up with something else to do. “
- “I just got plain busy with life, and let it slide. “
Open enrollment is about helping you keep active, avoid getting slowed down by aches and pains, and keep you enjoying being active all YEAR round, and not having to sit on the sidelines.
Much of the time, people get confused, because they’re getting inconsistent information, whether it be from health officials, or friends and family. Is it alright to go to the gym? Not alright?
They get disheartened when the latest regulation impacts their plan and health regimen, and fall completely off the wagon. I’m sure that you’ve heard that 42% of people have put on an average of 29lbs since the start of the pandemic?
In a world of so much inconsistency, we all need a little help being accountable and consistent. Everyone needs a little help being accountable sometimes, from the world’s greatest athlete, to the world’s youngest toddler just learning that hitting is not a good form of expression.
One thing that everyone can agree on (but the media doesn’t talk about) is that good nutrition, stress management, an exercise program, and good sleep all help your immune system, and significantly increase the quality of your life, and the number of years of quality you have left.
By signing up to work with our doctors during open enrollment you make a commitment to yourself, that the next year will be a year of small improvements and changes, that can lead to dramatic results. After all, the real problem isn’t what you’re NOT doing, it’s that you don’t have the habits required to do those things.
Our doctors help hold you accountable, and guide you with making better decisions about your exercise, nutrition, sleep, and stress. Working with us can help you build your habits around maintaining your active, healthy lifestyle and help you avoid serious long term consequences like unnecessary surgeries, or having to rely on others to take care of you in old age.
Here’s what’s been said by some clients that we’ve worked with beyond their plan of care designed to get them out of pain.
