Looking for the Right Card

This week, I went looking for a card for a friend undergoing chemotherapy.

I was worried about finding one with just the right tone.

I wanted to offer hope while understanding that she is facing a very serious situation.

To my surprise, I found a card saying: “Sorry to hear that chemotherapy is making you feel like you’ve been to hell and back.”

What does it say about cancer, that it has its own card, or that it has its own biographer.

Maybe we should call it an epidemic and look at what we are doing to our bodies.

Just a thought.

Wellness is more than weight loss and exercise.

The Right Choice

It’s easy to get confused about the right approach to your wellness. Every day it seems there’s another theory about the perfect program for health living.

The reality is that there is no “one size fits all” model for wellness. Everyone’s history, background and genetic makeup is different, so it’s important to work with someone who knows you and your family.

It’s important that you have confidence in the guidance you get and that you ask your wellness advisor about any issues that concern you. The absolute worst scenario is to jump from one approach to another.

There may be multiple theories ad they may be in conflict. Often, one approach might actually interfere with the goals of another. The result can be confusing and in some cases, dangerous.

To get the results you want you need consistency, that’s the only way any program will have long term results.
