Be Kind To Your Body

January 14, 2022 | Video

January 12, 2022 - This week we want to focus on being kind to your body. We spoke with GRH Physical Therapist Corrine Dutto, MPT, and she suggested these easy exercises to do at home or during your work day:
Sit to stand
Heel raises
Lunges
Biceps curls
Triceps press
Military press
Bent over rows
Push ups
Superman
Dead bug

Have you ever wondered what types of exercise you should consider adding to your wellness routine? Corrine suggests four facets of physical fitness:

  1. Cardiovascular or aerobic conditioning like walking, jogging, cross country skiing, snow shoeing, swimming, water aerobics or cycling.
  2. Strength. This can be exercises using weights or using your own body weight.
  3. Flexibility. There are a variety of ways to stretch including passive stretches, active stretches and types of yoga.
  4. Balance. Stand on one leg, walk on a beam.

With all of these exercises, if you experience pain you may want to consult with a physical therapist to show you proper technique.

Be Kind To Your Mind

January 5, 2022 - This week we would like to encourage you to 'Be Kind To Your Mind.' We spoke with the newest addition to our Behavioral Health team of providers, GRH Nurse Practitioner Mari Dominguez, PMHNP-BC and asked her to share her thoughts on being kind to your mind: "We are not going to make headway on external things until we calm the waters inside. Tuning inward, trying to listen to ourselves a little bit more...is how I like to encourage people to be kind to your mind."
