Happy 2017 from Everyone Here at CKHC!
At New Year’s we take time to reflect on everything in our lives, both the good and the not so good. We look back on what has gone well, and what has not. It’s always important to appreciate the positive. So first, congratulate yourself on what you are most proud of! Next, ask yourself, how can you make strides towards a new goal, or a long held one? A new beginning, a new year, gives you the impetus to improve.
If you decide to set a New Year’s resolution, good for you! A resolution is achievable if you are ready to put in some hard work and set reasonable goals. For example, if you and your physician set a goal of losing weight or reducing your blood pressure, give yourself mini-goals at first! Every few weeks celebrate your mini-achievement in line with your goals. For example, don’t eat cake to celebrate weight loss – maybe buy a new scarf or a new cellphone case. This makes your long term, big goal much easier to manage.
Remember, always follow your physician’s orders when setting any New Year’s resolutions. Having your doctor work with you when creating goals will help ensure that your goals, whatever they may be, are both safe and attainable.
We here at CKHC hope that everyone has had a wonderful holiday and look forward to helping you and supporting you to achieve your healthcare goals in 2017!
