Happy New Year!
We are headed into a new year and typically this is the time many of us begin to set personal goals focusing on the things we would like to accomplish over the next 12 months. While this past year has been anything but typical, a new year is a great time to think about ways we can continue to incorporate good health habits into our daily schedule. Self-care should be a priority for all of us! We can’t take care of others if we don’t take care of ourselves.
According to the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) the benefits of exercise keep our bodies fit and increase the immune system, which is especially important during the current pandemic. Richard Simpson, Ph.D., is quoted in an ACSM article from March 2020 as saying, “Not only can exercise have a positive direct effect on the cells and molecules of the immune system, but it is also known to counter the negative effects of isolation and confinement stress on various aspects of immunity”. Physical activity along with good nutrition and adequate rest are essential to staying well.
In this newsletter you will see a variety of programs the Healthpark offers that provide resources and support to help you continue healthy lifestyle choices. With some of the restrictions we have experienced during the pandemic, we continue to offer both virtual and in person educational opportunities for members and patients with our team of experts. Also included in this edition of our newsletter is a healthy recipe and facility updates. As we move into 2021 don’t forget we are here to help. Our Healthpark team members look forward to providing you the support you need body, mind and spirit.
