Building your savings account
The idea behind a monetary savings account is that it gives you a little “wiggle room” financially in case something comes up. The physical savings account can give us that same wiggle room for the day-to-day demands we experience. Over the course of these past several posts we have talked about a few of the components on how to create a stronger, healthier, and more resilient body. But our list is not an exhaustive one by any means. Plus every individual is very unique and will require different focus on their greatest needs. That is why it is important that you find a skilled clinician or clinicians to help you understand this individualized process much better. Your entourage can consist of physical therapist, chiropractors, massage therapists, acupuncturists, naturopaths, coaches, MDs, and spiritual leaders. These individuals will be able to help you better understand what your potential physical shortcomings may be and how to best address them. Regardless of whom you work with, whether it is one or many, it is vital that you are taught, not told, how to address your needs. Based upon the nature and stage of someone’s condition, a clinician may need to be much more hands on and apply most of the treatment. However, even during those times it is important that you know you are a vital component of the process and should be learning about the condition, the treatment being applied, and how to self manage the issue. Progressively the patient centered treatment will empower you as an individual to be able to take control and effectively manage things, PLUS it will teach you the how’s and why’s so that you can do your best to prevent this from happening again. And if you are not in pain the time spent with the clinician can be used to address some of your physical issues and help to keep your body working as optimally as possible. All of this to say, you are in control, you have the ability to make a huge impact in your overall wellness and health, and you should make sure you surround yourself with individuals that view you the same way and that look to support you on your journey!
Savings accounts don’t get built up without some level of planning, so take the time to figure out where you needs are, and be actively involved with those clinicians that will help you build your physiological saving account.
