We start off each year with the best of intentions. During the first few weeks of January, the gym is full of New Year’s resolution makers, clad in their brand-new workout gear. But soon the barely broken-in sneakers are shoved to the back of their closet and most health-related aspirations are forgotten long before the temptation of Valentine’s Day chocolate arises.
Making your health a priority in 2018 will take commitment, but it doesn’t necessarily have to be painful. Sure, there might be sore muscles every now and then, but with Better Life Carolinas on your side, no health goal is out of reach.
There is seldom a conversation about New Year’s resolutions that doesn’t feature one of these five topics:
1. Eating healthier
You’ve heard it said countless times that you are what you eat. But sticking to a strict diet is challenging, especially when busy schedules and travel make meal preparation nearly impossible. At Better Life Carolinas, we’ll provide access to a Nutrition Team that can help reframe your view of healthy eating and prove that it doesn’t have to tasteless and time consuming. We’ll help you map out a meal plan that works for your lifestyle.
2. Getting in shape
After performing some preliminary fitness tests, our team will help devise a workout regimen that you can stick to, whether your goal is to tone your tummy or rev up your sluggish metabolism. You’ll receive the support and guidance needed to stay on track and ultimately, to get results.
3. Increasing intimacy
They may be too bashful to write this resolution down and stick it on the fridge, but many folks are hoping to reignite intimacy with their partners in 2018. In fact, over 50% of men become disappointed with their bedroom performance as they age, but are wary about popping a little blue pill to treat erectile dysfunction. GAINSWave, a non-invasive, surgery-free ED treatment, puts a fulfilling love life back within reach. With no recovery period, GAINSWave can have you back in the bedroom in no time!
4. Energetic Aging
Better Life Carolinas offers a variety of aesthetic services designed to turn back the hands of time. Whether this means restoring a thick, healthy head of hair or youthful, wrinkle-free skin, these treatments help patients look as young as they feel!
5. Improving mood
A hormone imbalance can cause a wide range of symptoms, from mood swings and difficulty sleeping to a loss of concentration and change in libido. These symptoms affect both men and women, and depending on their severity, can take the joy out of everyday life. A simple hormone assessment is the first step toward determining whether an imbalance is to blame – and to helping you get back to a better place.
