Your Support Community
When you consider your health, deciding your goals is probably not difficult. Of course you’d love to be healthier and more active. You want to spend more time with your friends and family. You want to play catch with your kids. You want to climb a flight of stairs without being out of breath. You may even want to travel abroad or climb a mountain or run a marathon.
Having goals is a good first step, but goals alone aren’t enough to inspire a lasting change. We need to put these goals within a structure that supports them. With the right structure, our chance of success goes up. With the wrong structure, our chance of success goes down.
Think of your health goals as if you are building a bridge. Building a bridge can be challenging. These are a lot of pieces, and sometimes those pieces might feel too heavy to lift by yourself. The journey to realizing your goals can be easier if you create a support network, surrounding yourself with likeminded people that will help and encourage you when you need it most.
This social structure can be very powerful, and in my experience it is one of the most important tools for ensuring a client’s success. Whether you need help putting the pieces of your bridge in place or a safety net to help you back up if you fall, creating relationships with supportive, inspiring people can mean the difference between making your goals a reality and slipping back into old habits. Find this supportive community at Active Health Chiropractic. We are here to help you build your bridge to the health you desire.
