Matthew 6:25-34, Jesus teaches us about not worrying and to not be anxious about anything. Scripture tells us to focus on today and today only, tomorrow will take care of itself. Controlling what we can control and making the best of today, will help with your overall health, mood, and protection from illness. Yes, be informed. Yes, be careful and safe. Yes, take necessary precautions right now but we also must remember that our mind and emotional state both have a huge effect on how our physical body responds. Get out in the sunshine, play outside with your kids, exercise at home, stay hydrated with constant water intake and remember that this is only a season of our life. There is a time coming when COVID-19 will be behind us and we will all be stronger.
Exercise and proper nutrition are great ways to stay healthy and improve overall metabolic health. Choose today to eat healthier, drink more water, get more exercise and practice positive things in our life that will help physically and emotionally. All of us at First Choice Physical Therapy are here to help you. We are open and essential. If you need to make an appointment with us we are here to help. We are also here if you have any questions regarding home exercise programs. If you had an upcoming surgery canceled, contact us if you have any questions on what to do to prepare for the surgery once that time comes. These are not common times, but we are not common people. Stay strong, stay positive, stay in constant prayer with the Heavenly Father and know that we are all going to get through this.
