The new year has begun and this brings renewed commitments to health and wellness goals. Many people make promises to themselves with regards to weight but among our own staff, the goals for 2016 include returning to school and a desire to earn a nutrition degree, to run 1000K, to save money to road trip across the country, to swear less and to be kinder.
What are your goals? Wellness encompasses our physical health as well as our emotional and spiritual health. Consider spending time in prayer or meditation. Find ways to reduce your stress. Does this mean utilizing your accrued personal leave from work? Does it mean organizing your closets or planting a flower garden? How about growing tomatoes in a container? Do you have a gym membership that needs dusting off or a bicycle (or treadmill) at home that need some attention? Make a promise to take your daily medications and to reduce your salt consumption. Maybe brown bag your lunch so you can save a bit of money.
We live in a small town but we still have the trappings of a big city: over-scheduling our time and commitments which leads to poor lifestyle options and choices.
So let us help you focus your goals for this new year. And we apologize now for the annual ritual of filling our the update forms….which every gripes about but absolutely makes our business operations smoother and more efficient.
