What’s keeping you?

So here we are again.  A few degrees on the thermometer, and many of you are trying to wiggle your way into a swimsuit or a pair of shorts.  Why?

Is this a right of passage for a change in seasons?  It shouldn’t be, but for women, it often is.  But really IT IS TIME FOR A CHANGE; and not just in seasons.

I’ve often wondered, what keeps people from asking for help?  Fear of being perceived as a failure?  If it’s securing a personal trainer’s help, fear of how hard you will be asked to work?  Money? Time? Commitment?

As a nurse, I’ve seen people at their worst; and not just physically.  That part is often more fixable.  Sometimes it isn’t, if we’re talking what’s thought of as a chronic condition.  But even then, chronic doesn’t mean daily.  And it doesn’t mean the condition isn’t amenable to change. That being said, if you are struggling, what keeps you from asking for help?  This is where I need your help.

Tell me your fears are if you are struggling with a sense of what nutrition, or incorporating more activity into your life means to you.  I’d also like to hear from you if you just finished physical therapy or cardiac rehab, and want a little more supervised exercise.

A change of seasons needn’t only refer to weather conditions.  Seasons can also herald replacing old attitudes & behaviors with newer fresher ones.  And finding out how to do this, can start here & now.

Feedback needed.

Last installment of ARE YOU EATING BECAUSE OF WHAT’S EATING YOU?

This has been a series which for me, is personal.  When I decided to take my nursing expertise from the after thought of health, to the forefront, i.e. PREVENTATIVE, I’ve had little support.  There are those who see this as WHY DON’T YOU STAY IN YOUR LANE, AS A NURSE?  WELL, unless I’m driving, that advice for me does not apply.

Those of you who are struggling with what a sense of health, wellness, illness, exercise, or nutrition means to you, I can help.  However, I don’t do this alone,  If you like what you see, I will soon be adding a DONATE button.  More details to come.  Thank you
