On A Journey to Wellness? We Can Help

We only get one body in this life, are you treating it like the irreplaceable part that it is? If you’re performing more maintenance on your car than your health, we encourage you to make some changes. But, it can be hard to know where to start. We as a society don’t do a great job of educating people about health in school or beyond. Plus, there are so many mixed messages from different sources! It can lead to decision paralysis and continuing with the status quo. We’re here to help. Let’s work together to start your wellness journey, so you can live a longer, healthier life.

The Difference Between Lifespan and Health Span

Most people are familiar with the term lifespan, but have you ever heard of “health span”? These two terms measure something quite different, and we would argue that health span is a better measure to use. Lifespan is simply the time we are alive, from birth to death. But how many people live well in those later years? Health span is the amount of that time you are healthy, able to live a relatively normal life without chronic and debilitating disease. It’s this time we want to maximize. The best time to start working on your health span was yesterday, but the second best time is today. Studies show that lifestyle changes like exercise and eating a balanced diet improve your health, no matter when you start. So let’s ditch the excuses and make some positive changes!
