Taking control of your health and life requires specific actions on your part. Self-management of your health requires problem solving skills, quality information, communication skills, and taking action.
Your health plan is part of your life plan and requires you to make an honest assessment of the assistance you require from professionals, family, and friends. This assistance will be reciprocal in that you may need to help others or behave differently. It’s time to put those mutual expectations in writing and get on with your goals. As you proceed you will need to communicate wisely and act as a stigma breaker, to overcome barriers to your success. Remember, public commitment leads to increased success in meeting your goals. What are you waiting for? Share your life plan and move ahead.
