Here we are once again in January of a brand new year. We have a wonderful year ahead of us. I hope yourlist of New Year’s Resolutions is not as long as our friend in this graphic.
Keep it simple. Begin with one or two realistic and attainable goals for yourself. You know yourself best; so don’t lie to yourself about how many lifestyle changes you can make.
Make a simple list, write the list and start by establishing a routine which will enable you to reach the goals. It takes 30 days to develop a new habit; so keep at it. If you do not succeed one day that does not mean that you have failed. Simply go back to your routine tomorrow. People who clearly make resolutions and write them down are 10 times more likely to attain their goals than people who make vague resolutions and don’t write them down.
If your goal is to loose weight, you do not necessarily have to go on this killer starvation diet. Start by increasing your water intake. When you drink more water, you feel fuller and will eat less. You might try to plan nutritious meals at least two days ahead of time. When you have a plan, it is easier to stick to it. Incorporate more vegetables into those planned meals and less carbohydrates. In the long run, you will loose weight and become healthier.
For some of our clients, their goal is to be more compliant in wearing their support socks and stocking. For some, it is a matter of being able to get them on. Support stockings and socks do not do you any good sitting in your dresser drawer. Fitters at Support Hose Store know the secrets of the best fitters! Call one of us at 1-800-515-4271 and let us assist you in the selection of a donning device which will enable you to reach you goal of wearing you compression stockings or compression socks everyday to improve your quality of life.
Sometimes it is not the ability to don (put the stockings on), but the cost of the stockings which keeps some of out clients from reaching our goal. Did you know that each one of our manufacturers makes a low cost compression stocking and sock:
