Navigating Everyday Wellness

Doctor illustrationThere are things that you can do everyday to improve your overall wellness. And then there are things that you'll need a medical professional to help you with. You can't do it all alone (that's why you have us!). Making small changes can add up to be bigger changes in your health.

  • Wash your hands, it's easy but so important in preventing sickness! Sing Happy Birthday to know you're washing long enough.
  • Apply sunscreen- everyday- with at least an SPF of 30.
  • Don't just see your doctor when you're sick, schedule those annual appointments!

Alice in Wonderland

So she was considering in her own mind (as well as she could, for the day made her feel very sleepy and stupid), whether the pleasure of making a daisy-chain would be worth the trouble of getting up and picking the daisies, when suddenly a White Rabbit with pink eyes ran close by her.

Taking the First Step

Sneakers First StepExercising is important- it can help control your weight while also helping to prevent or manage health conditions such as diabetes. But did you know that it can help improve your mood and energy levels? Let's face it, who doesn't need more energy these days!

  • Make exercise fun, the less it feels like a chore, the more you'll want to do it!
  • Remember, little things add up: take the stairs, park your car farthest from the entrance.
  • Get your heart pumping and your muscles burning with a combination of cardio and strength workouts.

You owe it to yourself to to get moving, 30 minutes a day is all it takes! If you need some guidance on taking that first step, let us know, we have a program that can help.

Appetite For Life

Fruits and Vegetables illustrationStart your health and wellness journey by making choices that help you live a fuller life. Nutrition plays a key role in your health and wellness. By adding more color to your plate and keeping your portions in check you can help yourself to a serving of health.

  • Drink enough water throughout the day, try infusing your water with citrus fruits, berries, and melons - it's delicious!
  • Half of your plates should be veggies and fruit- find fun ways to make them more appealing- cauliflower rice anyone?

Alice in Wonderland

Alice was beginning to get very tired of sitting by her sister on the bank, and of having nothing to do. Once or twice she had peeped into the book her sister was reading, but it had no pictures or conversations in it, "and what is the use of a book," thought Alice, "without pictures or conversations?"

Having Fun in Parenthood

Parenting is a sport illustrationRaising kids is a full contact sport. Parents need a solid offense and defense at all times. And while there are some really good parenting books out there, nothing beats the advice of your trusted family medicine physician or pediatrician.

  • Planning for baby? Talk with your OB/GYN about steps to have a healthy pregnancy.
  • Vaccines- they're worth the pinch. Keep your kids up to date on important shots.
  • Helmets, shoulder pads, and knee pads- oh my! Wearing these can prevent injury.

Remember, being a parent is fun, but it helps when you have your playbook ready and know who to call when your child spikes a fever, where to go when a playground fall looks like a trip to the emergency room, and who can get your kid back in the game of life after an injury.
