Small changes everyday
Health is made of small decisions everyday
Your health is made of small decisions everyday. It is possible to improve your health by changing 1 small decision everyday.
Many of my patients become completely overwhelmed when they learn that they are physically compromised. Thy feel helpless to change or like there are so many changes that need to be made that they don’t know where to start.
Health starts with one decision. Choosing to go for a walk in the evening. Choosing a piece of fruit instead of a chocolate bar. Waking up early today to do some exercise. These choices are a lot different than the choice to fight cancer. Small decisions are less overwhelming and make sense for your short term health.
I once had a patient tell me she was unwilling to give up eating popcorn every night to try to eat healthier so that she could help her body fight a brain tumour. It seemed quite sad to me st the time but upon reflection I realized that she had made thousands of small decisions to eat her popcorn before she sat. before me and boldly said she would never give up popcorn.
I do not believe that eating popcorn causes cancer and not eating popcorn cures cancer but it showed me how amazing the cumulative effect of small decisions has on our ability to change. I have found that being adaptable and flexible are two of the major factors in making good habits for healthy living.
If we think about changing our diets many of us become overwhelmed and don’t know what to do next. What should I buy? How should I cook? Is this good for me? Is that going to help
me? It becomes so confusing, almost paralyzing. But…if we decide to eat a salad today for lunch. It is easy. Small decisions turn into big consequences where your health is involved.
I want to give you the opportunity to take action on your health today. Make one small decision today to help yourself. Do a push up. Go for a walk. Eat a salad. Drink a glass of water. Do some stretching. Talk to someone you care about and decide to get healthy together. Or if you really want to take your health to the next level and figure out what you need for your internal health. Do a test. Order this test and see what your next step is.
I want to see you and your family be as healthy as possible. Please contact me if you need help with making a decision about your health today.
