As more of the world opens up, we’ve heard from employees their desire to recommit to health goals that may have taken a back seat during the COVID-19 pandemic. First off, Balanced You wants to acknowledge the intensity of the pandemic and remind you that you have done your best amidst a high stress and unprecedented time.
When recommitting to health goals, it is important to be compassionate with yourself and your body. It can be helpful to remember that any moment you choose to commit to health goals, you haven’t failed at health, you are only just beginning. King County and your insurance provider offer a program called Omada that can help you shift your mindset about your goals and support you wherever you are in your journey. Omada can support those who want to make lifestyle changes and who may be at risk for type 2 diabetes.
What ‘healthy’ means is up to you
Maybe it’s eating the right foods, or sticking with your walking routine. Maybe it’s being there for the people you love, or walking up the stairs without pain.
No matter what ‘healthy’ means to you, Omada can support you getting there. With Omada, there is no food-shaming, calorie counting or boring meals. Your health coach and weekly lessons will teach you realistic ways to keep stress in check and how to exercise and get moving in a way that is enjoyable for you.
