Whether you're 15, 35, or 75 years old, newsflash... you are aging!
Might as well take control and decide how you want to age.
It's never too early to start to think about aging, and if you aren't happy with how you're aging it's never too late to start.
At our clinic, we've had the pleasure of working with adults all the way up to 102 years old who report their quality of life as very high. And that is because their daily habits support their longevity. So... we've been keeping track of what these habits are so we can help others do the same.
There are an infinite amount of actions you can take to age gracefully, but we listed out the action steps that will give the greatest impact for the effort put in.
We probably sound...
One of the most important questions we can ask ourselves. If you're not getting the health results you are looking for, your movement is likely a huge factor!
Movement really comes down to a matter of convenience....Today moving more to accomplish our daily tasks is viewed as an inconvenience. But what if you could drastically improve your health by making your life less convenient?
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?
Brain health in is a topic not discussed often enough, especially within the medical community. The conversation around mental health and access to mental health services has been increasing in recent years, however the aging brain is often left out of the conversation. There are so many questions left unanswered surrounding the decline of brain health associated with aging. The medical profession has made observations about those who ultimately experience brain atrophy and those who don’t, so we are slowly gaining clarity. However, there are still many questions left unanswered.
Research has identified some clear correlations and patterns in those who ultimately receive a diagnosis of dementia. Keep in mind, however, that correlation does not equal causation. We know that balance problems and risk of falls increase with increasing severity of cognitive decline. We know poor mental health increases the risk of developing dementia. We know that muscle weakness is associated...
he other night, I was watching my barely one-year-old son attempt to pick up a garden hose in the backyard. Starting in a deep squat, he kept trying to stand up with something that was pretty heavy for his size. Standing unsupported without holding anything is a skill he has yet to master, and here he was trying something that seemed physically impossible. After about 50 tries, he finally got it and looked just so proud of himself when he did.
In watching my children grow over the last several years, I realized kids are invigorated by the most difficult of physical challenges. Driven by curiosity to learn about their environment, they develop new motor skills along the way. I am not sure where we lost this as adults, but developing this mindset and drive of a child would solve most of our health problems. Adopting this approach would bring more mindfulness to movement, paving the way for healthier aging. Let’s talk more about what we can learn from children to make our own...
What's the first thing that comes to mind when you think about aging?
Do you imagine a life of limiting what you enjoy because of medical conditions? A time of decline? A life full of doctor's appointments?
Or do you imagine a life full of vitality? Feeling amazing so you can continue to do all the things you love well into your golden years?
We hope imagine the latter, but unfortunately most only picture the first scenario.
It's an understatement to say that our society holds tightly to a negative view of aging. It's pervasive in the ways we talk about older adults and also very apparent in advertising. It seems we are on a never-ending quest for “anti-aging” everything.
We often make the mistake of associating aging with decline, and these views impact the way in which older adults view their health. We make assumptions we'll decline both mentally and physically as we age.
But are we really declining because of age itself or because our views...

Have you ever heard of a self-fulfilling prophecy?
Ever had a feeling something would go wrong, and then it did? It probably left you wondering if it was intuition, or if your bad feelings caused you to act differently than you would've bringing about the negative outcome. The answer is likely the later.
You've likely experienced this at one time or another, and are likely experiencing this every day without even being aware!
So how do you know if this is you?
Are you struggling with your health? Not feeling quite as energetic and confident as you hope you will someday?
You might be setting yourself up each and every day for a self-fulling prophecy when it comes to your health just by being in the wrong mindset!
When you believe something will go wrong, you set yourself up for failure. In healthcare, we see this every day. At a client's first visit we often hear stories of desperation and...
Want the secret to living your best life?
We have to admit, this is a bit of a trick question because there truly is no one secret to being your best self. Though the answer to this question is in reality quite simple, it might not be easy.
A common theme we hear from our clients is that there is some key to living a healthy life that they just haven't found yet... some deep, dark secret that holds all the answers to living a life of energy, vitality, and abundance.
Chronic disease is becoming more rampant by the day, so we must be missing something, right? Some unknown, mysterious secret that will change our health in an instant if only we could find it.
The true answer is that there is no secret. There is no "one-size-fits-all" approach. And certainly no magic bullet. Instead, the answer involves being mindful along the journey toward finding our best self! This is probably much more boring than any of us want to admit.
