What are the things that you do to improve your health?
As I’ve gotten older I’ve realized how important it is to me, and more importantly, my loved ones that I take care of myself. I am busy, have a lot of responsibility, and people depend on me; I am on the RIHEL staff, co-owner of a demanding local business, mom to the most amazing toddler, a wife, and I volunteer my time to the veteran community. For a long time, I neglected my health because I thought I was too busy and honestly had little motivation to be on a “health conscious kick.” I realized however, that when I make bad health choices I am sluggish, moody, less confident and it shows in my production levels. In addition, I am a combat veteran with PTSD, and regular exercise helps with decreasing my symptoms.
