How much time will you give your health?
In this day of advanced electronic communication, we seem to be busier than ever. There is always an opportunity to be interrupted. Someone can easily reach you in a moment’s notice to get what THEY need. However, who is taking care of you?
Unfortunately, I believe we give our phones more attention than we do our health. However, this will have terrible ramifications if left unchecked. I see this daily in practice. The truth is that not everyone that comes to me will be able to reach the potential they desire.
One of our questions we ask every single patient (we ask them multiple times throughout their care) is this:
“Where do you think your health is on a scale of 0-100, and where do you want to be?”
EVERYONE wants to be at a 100. Most realize they are not there. Yet, the next question we ask is telling of their value of health:
“How long do you think it will take to get there?”
Most believe they are able to reach perfect health in a relatively short period of time. I like big goals, with short timelines, however it is important to understand that if I do not reach a certain goal, I do not give up. Neither should you. Your health is your biggest asset. We work with the segment of the community shares this value.
