Have you ever felt like you couldn’t handle the day ahead of you?
When it feels like the stress of your personal life or job seem ready to knock you down and you don’t want to get out of bed.
Or the fatigue, brain fog and extra weight you have been carrying make you feel that you do not have the energy it takes to cook another meal, pack another lunch, type another report or sit in traffic yet again.
You may have felt this way so many times that you sought the care of your doctor to help you with these issues. Maybe you were given a prescription to manage symptoms, but you felt like there should be something more. Something you should be doing differently.

Do you remember when you first noticed that you had a health issue holding you back from enjoying life completely?

Your hesitance is only building up anticipation of your desire for it.
So, you give in and you eat it.
And what about that gym membership you signed up for?
Summer hit, so you figured you would rather exercise outside. But you haven’t.
You wake up too tired. You have too much to do.

We do things a little differently here at the Grewal Center for Mind body Medicine. We discuss frequently with patients that we don’t want you to just create goals; We want you to create habits.
