Jim has two kids, a wife, and a full-time job. He feels like she can barely go to the bathroom alone.

When was the last time you evaluated your self-care practices?
What does your exercise routine look like? Did you stop going to the gym because work kicked up? Block off your calendar, just like a doctor’s appointment. Get back on board. It’s not too late (and let us know if we can help).
Do you already have a solid exercise schedule? What about your recovery? After all, the gains we see from the gym come when we rest. Schedule a massage, yoga class, or some quiet time. Block it off. Make it an appointment.
What does your nutrition look like? Does it need some cleaning up (who doesn’t)? Make a healthy meal. Start with one and go from there. Need some guidance? We can help.
