Description

How can clients keep their New Year’s resolutions? Find out in this continuing education quiz. Research shows that good intentions aren’t enough. There are many reasons people fall off the workout wagon: Too tired. Too busy. Too boring. Too hard. This article takes a look at why the motivation to change and the intention to work out aren’t always enough, and how you can help exercisers stick to their resolutions. Discover the combination that gives exercisers the best chance of reaching their goals, and for finding out what the gym looks like in the spring! In addition, this quiz covers newsworthy research in the mind-body-spirit community. Learn how heart failure patients may benefit from Pilates, how volunteering to help others can lengthen ones life and how short sleep is associated with weight gain in both men and women. Read how exercise can serve as supplemental treatment for 50% of patients with depression who have not been cured by a single antidepressant medication, and how meditation training may increase brain tissue. This quiz is bursting with useful information!
