On Valentine’s Day, it’s customary to take a little extra time to make someone in your life feel special, loved and cared for. It’s important to show our appreciation for the friends and family in our lives, but it’s incredibly important for each of us to show ourselves self-love, as well. Most of us spend a lot of time taking care of family, friends, our jobs and our homes, frequently overlooking our own individual needs. Many of us take better care of our cars than we do ourselves. Caring about our overall health and practicing balanced living, including proper nutrition, is a form of self-love that can make each of us look and feel great, inside and out.
Many people think that making better nutritional decisions is like an “on-off” switch: you either are or you aren’t. This is the “diet” mindset and it’s one of the main reasons people often fall off after a few weeks. We then either over indulge or choose an “unhealthy” meal or two and decide to call it quits. Some people feel as if they’ve totally failed and revert back to their old routines and habits rather than seeing it as a small or single deviation to learn from.
At CardioMender, MD (CMMD) we know there’s no such thing as a one trick fix. A lasting lifestyle change comes gradually. It’s a disciplinary process that your mind and body need to get accustomed to in order to be sustained. A great thing about reaching and maintaining our optimal health is it’s personal and unique for each of us. The programs at CMMD are customized to meet individual circumstances, concerns and health issues.
