“The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, worry about the future, or anticipate troubles, but to live in the present moment wisely and earnestly.” ~ Buddha.
We have each experienced the last few weeks through our own “lens:”
- Parents who are now homeschooling are more thankful than ever for the incredible jobs our teachers do.
- Our patients who are invested in the stock market are considering what choices to make about investing today and in the future.
- At Core Therapies, our lens is obviously on health and we have already learned very powerful lessons from this whole process.
Health has always been our number one value. When you ask people what their number one value is, they may say things like family or freedom or financial stability. In times like this we realize that if we don’t have our health, literally none of the rest matters. As a leader in this industry, my message and my conviction has grown even stronger. We owe it to ourselves to do everything we can to continue to increase our health and vitality. That is what we at Core Therapies do every day. We help build our patients’ health through chiropractic, specific functional medicine and blood labs, acupuncture, breathwork, bodywork, regenerative medicine, hyperbaric oxygen and so much more.
This isn’t the first time we have been exposed to something like this and I can guarantee it won’t be the last. So, what do we do? Do we sit around in fear and pray we don’t get it? Do we shut down our lives in order to prevent spread? I support the moves that are being made at
this time, but I also know this isn’t a healthy long-term answer. It’s not mentally healthy and it has the potential to destroy our economy. There is a better way.
The best way to prepare for something like this in the future is to focus on and build our health now. You have a choice.
Will you let this paralyze you with fear and anxiety just waiting for it to impact you or someone you love? Or will you choose to take active steps (no matter how small) to start building your health today?
Even now, there are so many healthy steps we can take in and around our homes: Going on walks, getting sunshine, stretching, doing yoga, taking time to breathe, getting more sleep, etc. You have been given the gift of time and it is one of our greatest gifts. Embrace this time and make small steps every day to improve your health.
Core Therapies is here for you now more than ever. The form of our support may be a bit different, but there is one thing that never changes for us:
We exist to lead the change that transforms the health of our community for generations to come.
