With what appears to be another uncertain new year upon us, NOW may be the time to make sure you are taking care of #1.
That’s according to Jody Corpe, Lake Regional Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation Manager, who says personal wellness should start with setting goals that do not have time constraints attached to them…”I’m just going to set my goal so that I can achieve them when they happen, and I am able to make them happen.”
Corpe also says it’s important to stay focused considering we will continue to face several different obstacles…“We’ve COVID we’ve got FLU, we’ve always got things coming at us…to back peddle every now and then is ok, as long as we continue to look forward.”
Other tips offered to enhance your personal wellness for 2022 include not to set your goals too lofty and not to go into it alone…find somebody to join in who can share in some two-way persuasion to stay the course.
