October is harvest season. This is the time, whether you have a garden or a field, you get to see all your hard work come to fruition. You took the time to plant the seed, provide the nutrients it needed, and now you get to reap the benefits of the fresh produce. Planting is a powerful metaphor for starting your healthy living journey. To begin, you need to prepare yourself and accept you are moving forward to this goal of a healthy lifestyle. Next, ensure you are doing what you need to to fuel your body and get the appropriate nutrients - whether it’s through food, sleep, exercise or motivation to keep you going. Once you feel you are on the path you are working towards, you will begin to reap the benefits. Whether the benefits are health related, positive mood changes, building relationships or whatever it may be - you will feel the hard work and dedication paying off. We wish you all the best on your journey and please reach out if there is anything we can do to support you.
For this month's newsletter, if you are looking for a way to embrace the beautiful weather, we put together a list of 5 fall ideas to inspire you to take advantage of the outdoors and what this season represents. Our media team also got in the festive fall spirit and used a pumpkin as resistance in our workout. This is something easy to do at home and in just 5 moves, you will start to feel the burn after just a few short minutes. Then, for our recipe, we are featuring a refreshing butternut squash and apple salad recipe. The flavors will spring you into the fall season with just one bite! Lastly, hear from our member, Merrill, as he was told that he wouldn’t walk again without assistance. After working with our Health & Wellness Coach, Terri, Merrill is not only walking again, but he is also participating in various strength workouts. His ambition is inspiring!
Wishing you much health & happiness,
Paul Limburg, M.D., Medical Director
