Staying Healthy from Day-to-Day
As we know, the day-to-day choices we all make influence our individual and collective futures. Staying healthy, via regular checkups, hitting the gym and being mindful of the food we put into our bodies, generate three important avenues that help secure a healthy future for ourselves and our posterity.
Even though Park City is a relatively small community, our town offers multiple options for world class healthcare. This includes the Park City Hospital with numerous instacare clinics, private concierge practices, dentists, general surgical services and orthopedic and trauma surgical services. For those looking for preventative medicine, Park City offers multiple naturopathic doctors and acupuncturists, physicians practicing Eastern medicine and sports medicine facilities—including the LiVe Well Center on Round Valley Drive. Furthermore, with the high cost of insurance in today’s world, many community members are left without access to medical care. Under the direction of Dr. John Hanrahan with the People’s Health Clinic, Park City offers residents without medical insurance the opportunity to receive free medical care.
Mindful eating is a hot topic in today’s bustling world of food on the go! Understanding what we are eating, and the sustenance we need to thrive and survive, is critical to our future health. Fairweather Natural Foods is a great place to shop for healthy groceries; but the most important part is being cognizant of the food that is being placed into our bodies.
Staying mentally and physically fit is the desire of most people. Studies show that exercise is as good for the mind as it is for the body. Park City has a vast array of options to help keep your mind and body in tip-top condition. One can find boxing classes, spin classes, zumba workouts, boot camps, circuit training, plyometrics, and every style of yoga known to man! So, show up to class and let your mind and body do the talking.
