Check in: How are you doing?

Look at that, it’s June. It's hard to believe we’re almost halfway through the year. We know… where did the time go?

If you’ve been following our blog for a while, you might remember we started the year sharing words of encouragement from the MOBE Guides. After all, January is often about making new year’s resolutions and setting goals related to better health and more happiness. We also talked about your “new you” resolution, because in our book the goal isn’t a number or a milestone… it’s a better YOU.

Any progress is great progress.

If you’ve been working with your MOBE Guide this year, how is it going? If you’re new to self-management, has your guide helped you discover the connection between the way you think and how you feel? Whether you’re living with chronic pain or illness, we know that self-management skills help improve health and quality of life. Change doesn’t happen overnight, but one step at a time. In other words, it’s okay if you feel like you’re only making snail’s progress toward your health goals. What matters is that you’re making progress, and your Guide is on the journey with you.

You’re not alone.

So it’s June. Maybe you’ve had some wins, and maybe you’ve had some setbacks. Tell us how you’re doing; tell us all about the baby steps, the giant leaps, and even the detours. No matter where you are on your health journey, you’re not alone because MOBE is on your side.
