A comprehensive lifestyle treatment plan can break the complex cycle. Part of that is redirecting your focus on what you can do, instead of what you cannot.
-Start with a primary care physician to address possible underlying health issues or injuries.
-Reestablish purpose, strengths and goals, which can both energize and motivate.
-Assess daily habits like food, hydration, stress, sleep and exercise.
-Plan for frequent movement and breaks to generate circulation.
-Work with a personal trainer or physical therapist to restore strength and mobility.
-Try a mindfulness program or cognitive therapy to reestablish thought patterns and build relaxation pathways.
