Drawing on her experience as founder of a highly successful wellness center, Dr. Michelle Robin shares seven practices for complete wellness in her new book Wellness on a Shoestring.
(PRWEB) June 22, 2010 -- Ask anyone how to be healthy, and they’ll likely share a few tips: eat vegetables, exercise, skip the fast food. Ask if they’re doing those things regularly, and the response is often a longer list of excuses.
One excuse Dr. Michelle Robin, author of the newly released book "Wellness on a Shoestring: Seven Habits for a Healthy Life," hears a lot these days is lack of money.
“People think that healthy living costs a lot of money, and they are afraid that, in this current economy especially, wellness is beyond their reach—that it’s something they could only achieve with a personal fitness trainer, expensive gym memberships or a hefty grocery budget,” she said.
A licensed chiropractor, Robin oversees care for about 100 persons a day at her wellness clinic in the greater Kansas City area. The book draws from her experiences helping patients at all income levels find relief from lifestyle-related ailments such as joint pain, diabetes, obesity, back pain, depression and chronic illness.
“People are looking for a magic pill for wellness, and the truth is, the magic is in attending to the basics,” Robin said. “It’s simple and hard—hard because living well requires you to be intentional, to use your personal power to support your health in a culture where the majority of people around you aren’t practicing a wellness lifestyle.”
Robin’s success stems from breaking “wellness” into a series of manageable steps—or habits—most of which can be practiced anywhere, any time. The book is organized into seven chapters, one for each wellness habit.'/>"/>
