What Amazon's Philosophy Has To Do With Your Health

“We are stubborn vision. We are flexible on details.” -Jeff Bezos

This philosophy of Jeff Bezos that drives the culture at Amazon is a huge reason behind their success. By keeping the overall vision in mind and not getting too caught up in the details they consistently grow as a business.

If you don’t feel you are living your healthiest potential, adopting this philosophy may just be the thing you’ve been missing.

If you’ve been searching for some secret to optimal health for years but feel like you just haven’t found the right thing yet, you might be too focused on the details and not enough on the big picture.

Most of us easily fall into this trap, losing sight of our purpose and our why when it comes to our health.

The Downside of Convenience

Humans were intended to move, and move often. Our movement impacts not only our physical health, but also our mental health and overall well-being. 

By focusing on a lifestyle of convenience, we've deprived ourselves opportunities for better health. Making our lives less convenient actually results in better quality of life!

Think about the last time you felt like you had all the energy you wanted to get through the day... the answer is likely years ago. It might seem counterintuitive to make yourself work MORE throughout the day in order to have MORE energy, but that's what we are here to help with! 

Need guidance to get started on a movement-based lifestyle? Reach out to us and we would be happy to help!

Small simple moves like parking at the end of the parking lot or taking the stairs instead of the elevator add up. By thinking about the small changes you can make throughout the day to move more you can change your health for the better!

What ideas do you have for making your life less convenient today?

Video FAQ: How Do I Choose the Right Therapist?

 

Have you been to a physical or occupational therapist and not had the results you were hoping for?

Or were you satisfied with the therapy you received at the time only to have the same problem you went there for in the first place return?

The reason we started ABC was to address these very problems!

When we first started our careers as therapists in a big facility, we were quickly disenchanted by the heavy emphasis on diagnosis codes, insurance reimbursement, and the lack of personalized care.

So... fast forward a few years and here we are. 

Don't mind us as we go off on a bit of a tangent today on what you might want to consider avoiding when you are going to a physical or occupational therapist. Making sure you find a therapist and clinic that are the right fit for you is something we are so very passionate about!

At ABC, we emphasize you and your story above all else. You have your therapists undivided attention for the whole time you are here. If we are not...
