The end of the year is approaching. Everyone is caught up in preparations for the holidays. Not surprisingly, concerns of the pelvic floor may be taking a back seat at this time.
In a very appropriate arrangement of priorities, matters of bathroom habits, physical performance and sexuality are a few rungs down on the priority ladder when placed up against family, gifts, and food. What are the reasons behind, and the cost of delaying attention to pelvic health in this way?
Every year around this time I hear from people about their latest new year’s resolution. Lately more and more, though, I am hearing from friends, family, and clients, that they have stopped making new year’s resolutions. They feel that they never stick to their resolutions for longer than a few weeks anyhow, so they say “What’s the point?” For the same reasons, I see people shunning the idea of setting personal goals, because they worry about failing to reach the goal they set. Does this mean that goals and resolutions are bad ways to pursue personal growth? Not necessarily, but recent research shows there may be a better way.
