Wellness Outside of Sessions: Sustainable Habits
Kaleah McClain, FST LMT FMT NMRT.
When receiving a massage session, completing a personal training session, or completing a nutrition consultation, the biggest challenge is maintaining and contributing to the progress made during the session. While a session can be a kickstart to reducing pain or achieving goals, the most life changing work happens during daily life.
How do we impact our health and wellbeing during our day?
Drinking enough water
Sleeping well and long enough
Regular physical activity like stretching, exercise, and walking
Self massage like foam-rolling, cupping, heat/cold packs
Creating stress management techniques
One obstacle to lifestyle changes is lacking consistency. Habits are easier to break and difficult to create. As a way to make it easier, we have videos with stretching, exercise, foam rolling, trigger point release, and cupping available to members. Use the resources you have available to you.
If you need more help implementing new ideas, a great resource is the book Atomic Habits by James Clear. Best of luck discovering new methods to help yourself!
