As the carefree days of the warm summer months come to a close, we find ourselves coming back into more structured routines. For some people, this might be settling into new school or work schedules. For others, it may be getting used to fewer daylight hours and planning for the colder months ahead. Maybe it’s a combination of both.
Regardless of how you embrace the fall season, it’s a good time to reflect on what’s been working well and what changes you may want to consider making. Because change can be a good thing. Whether it’s embracing the chillier weather, going on nature walks, or changing up our fitness routines, change can help us move forward and do something good for ourselves.
For us here at Get Healthy, Stay Healthy, there is a lot of change to be expected. First, we are working on redesigning the website. It’s more than just giving it a new look. Over the years, we have developed many articles and we want to make it easier for you to find the health information you are looking for.
And of course, we can’t forget about our ever-evolving health content. Take a look at a few of our newer articles. Our Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Freda Lewis-Hall, appeared on the TV show, “The Doctors,” to help break cancer down to the basics. Patient Esther Garza shared with us her personal journey with breast cancer—from how she told her kids about her diagnosis to how she powered through it all. We also created a lot of new articles on the subject of pain: how you can help manage it, how to stay positive when dealing with it, and how to describe it the right way to your doctor. And, finally, we posted a few articles about your general health. For example, is sitting too much bad for your health? And, how does grief affect your health?
Regardless of the health topics that you relate to, we hope you check back often. As always, we’re happy that you’re part of our wellness community!
