Healthcare providers agree that winter does seem to be the time when more illness, discomfort and chronic disease are present in their patients. Would feeling more satisfied help our health? Research does show that being confident and satisfied can improve the function of our immune systems. Spirit of Women hospitals, doctors and nurses invite you to make this winter your season of being satisfied with your health and healthcare providers. Try creating a five-part plan for a better you by spring. Review it with your doctor or nurse practitioner. Build confidence and strength by following through with your decisions and working on your goals every day. Share your success with family and friends and, of course, your healthcare provider. Spirit of Women magazine is here to help you achieve better health for yourself and your family. This issue will provide you with lots of starting points for a more confident, healthier lifestyle, from preventing heart disease to making family time a priority to learning how to focus as an adult. Wishing you a season of healthy satisfaction, Spirit of Women magazine is a publication of the Spirit of Women Health Network.
