Since 2020 has been a particularly long and difficult year for all of us, we want you to know we couldn’t have made it through without you, our amazing patients. You are our family and you help us stay hopeful and positive every day. Thank you!
Since Thanksgiving is upon us, we’re feeling inspired by gratitude and all its amazing health benefits. Did you know people who do gratitude journaling are more likely to be happier and live longer? Unfortunately, in difficult times like these, gratitude can be hard to come by. If you’re not feeling especially grateful right now, don’t be hard on yourself or discouraged. Experts say gratitude is like any muscle in your body; it needs to be exercised and built up. With the right exercises, you can develop an attitude of gratitude. Here’s a short list of easy ways to boost your gratitude muscle. We hope you find them useful!
Act the part, even if you don’t feel it.
Research indicates practicing acts of gratitude can help you feel more gratitude. So instead of waiting for the feeling to develop, you can foster the feeling by doing things grateful people do, like smiling at others or letting people go in front of you in line. Practicing random acts of kindness will help you feel amazing, we guarantee it!
Be kind to yourself.
The hectic holiday season is upon us, and it’s easy to get lost in the hustle and bustle. But no matter how busy life gets, we encourage you to put your needs at the top of your To Do list. Remember: Just like on an airplane, your oxygen mask needs to go on FIRST before you can help others. This means something different for everyone, but a few of our favorite self-care needs include microneedling, BBL™ photofacials and CoolSculpting®. You get the gist!
Remember to sleep and eat.
How easy it is for our healthy habits to fall by the wayside when the crazy holiday season takes over? You can maintain a sense of balance and serenity by staying committed to your healthy routine, diverging only on occasion for a holiday cookie or treat. If you stay the course, you’ll be thanking yourself when the season is over and you emerge from 2020 feeling amazing!
