Bet on Your Strengths

Many of our patients know this, but I do not have an artistic bone in my body. My brother got all of the music talent genes, while I’m more of a science/numbers nerd. So when the office first opened up and I was in charge of making it presentable, it looked…bare, to say the least.

Eventually, I buckled down and talked to an interior design crew, and they helped guide the renovations to make things look more welcoming. It was awesome to have them in my corner, coming up with creative ideas while I was able to focus on patient care.

As we lock in towards New Years Resolutions, I think it’s important to recognize your strengths and dive deeply into them. Especially when we look at long-term sustainability of fitness goals, the number one reason most new years resolutions don’t stick is because of burnout.

You really want to avoid forcing yourself into activities that are away from what you’re naturally gifted at. You may need to do it every now and then to get long-term results…but forcing yourself into it day after day, it’ll just suck the ever-living soul out of you.

If you’re more of a fan of cardio, start off with most of your days on the treadmill or elliptical. If you enjoy the strength work, do the workout machines and free weights. And then, when you start to build up the strength and see results, start pushing your limits by getting outside of your comfort zone.

If you move in a positive direction and enjoy the journey along the way, that will help lead to long-term results that your body will thank you for!
