Magneciser Pedal Exerciser Starting the year with a list of New Year’s Resolutions may be as commonplace as ending the year without them. Perhaps therein lies the problem – starting with a list of resolutions intead of just one specific, measurable, achievable, realistic and time-based (S.M.A.R.T.) goal . . .  but I digress.  Below are a few tricks to improve your chances of making the right resolution(s) and seeing them through to success.  You can do it!

5 Tips for Successful Resolutions

1.  Define Feelings First.  Sometimes we set “the wrong goals”.  We think that accomplishing a certain goal will make us feel the way we want to feel.  For example, you may resolve to lose weight, or stop smoking, reduce stress,  or spend more time with the kids/spouse/family, etc. but really what you want is to have more energy or to stop worrying about your immortality, or to stop feeling anxious.  Maybe you want to rid yourself of shame.  Or to feel more connected or safe or grounded.  Whatever you want, your feelings may not be realized or satisfied if you set the wrong goal.  Start by defining the feeling and then pinpoint the things that make you feel that way, essentially backing into a goal.  If you ever say “I’m tired of feeling (fill in the blank).”  That’s a good place to start.  Connect the dots back to a goal that, when accomplished, will make you feel the way you want to.

2.  Tell the Truth.  If, say, your resolution is to eat healthy and work out every day - and these have been your resolutions every year for as long as you can remember, then perhaps you need to come clean about why you’re failing.  Ask yourself WHY it is hard to maintain a healthy lifestyle year-round.  Get your answer and then ask WHY THAT is happening.  Keep interrogating yourself, fleshing out your excuses until you get to the truth.  Be honest. It might not be pretty, but it is a place to start.

3.  Break it Down.  So you’ve decided that your goal is to feel proud and confident in your clothes.  Breaking it down further, you want to look hot in your jeans and get positive feedback, compliments – whistles even.  This could mean you need to lose weight, gain weight, buy new jeans, change your shoes, firm up your fanny or a number of other things. Point is, you are drilling down to a goal that can be measured and tracked.

4.  Say it Out Loud! It’s part of the Secret, and it seems to work.  Anyone who knows the power of prayer will agree that something about making your intentions, plans and wishes known to the universe makes them more likely to happen.  Try articulating your goals and dreams out loud – often.  Put them on the fridge or write them on the bathroom mirror.  Say your goals with confidence to yourself and others.  Don’t worry about failing or looking like a fool. Ignore the naysayers and negative people.  The people who care about you will support you.  Those who don’t, don’t matter.

5.  Plot Your Strategy.  Research your options, make your goals measurable and seek help.  Monitor your progress and adjust if necessary, but don’t give up.  Gather the right tools to measure and chart your success.  In the case of weight loss or health improvement, you can use Diagnostic Products such as  Body Fat Analyzers, Pedometers, Home Test Kits and Scales.  If you make your goals and progress visible, you will remain committed and motivated. 

Whatever you do, remember to reward yourself along the way!  Good luck.

Choose any color you want, as long as it is Blue or Pink.  Not just any Pink, but the Snuggie Pink Limited – Breast Cancer Research Edition. (While supplies last).

Snuggie Blanket with Sleeves Snuggie Blanket with Sleeves

I have all kinds of plans for my Snuggie.  First off, I’ll need at least one for the car.  And I’ll take it to the movies! I’ll roll it discretely in my purse and then BAM pull it out after the movie has started and WRAP UP.  The Snuggie has sleeves so my hands will be free for popcorn.  Score!

My home Snuggie will be primarily a TV and Game Snuggie or perhaps a Martinis-on-the-Patio-Whipping-Todd-at-Backgammon Snuggie.  It will NOT be a Bar-b-Que Snuggie or a Disco Snuggie.  Danger. 

Get your Snuggies TODAY!  They’re inexpensive, so stock up. What a great gift.  Speaking of gifts, check out our entire Gift Ideas category. 

Where do you SNUGGIE?

The ability to get from here . . . to there . . . is practically the definition of independence.  And Allegro offers hundreds of ways to get there, regardless of your ability.  Just take a look at our large selection of canes, walkers, rollators, wheelchairs and mobility scooters!

Choosing the right mobility equipment is important for your health and safety.  Read the product descriptions carefully so that you understand the capacities, dimensions and benefits of each product. Your physical capabilities must also be considered when choosing the right mobility equipment.  Your doctor, caregiver or  health care professional can help recommend the best type of equipment for your current and future mobility needs.  When it comes to getting around, Allegro is sure to have exactly what you need.

TYPES of MOBILITY AIDS

Canes

Canes can be used for balance (single tip) or to bear your full weight (quad).  The top of the cane should be at the same level as the crease on the back side of your wrist with your arms at your side.  Measure the distance from your wrist to the floor, with shoes on.  Review this MayClinic.com Slideshow: How to choose and use a cane for more information.

Adjustable Quad Walking Cane - Large Base Quad Canes

Drive Deluxe Folding Cane Seat Specialty Canes

Derby Cane Rosewood Stain Standard Canes

Already have a cane?  How about attaching a Cane Ice Grip this winter?

 Crutches 

Crutches are fitted according to your height.  When you stand, your elbows should bend slightly at about 20 degrees, with your hand grips even with your hip joint.  You should be able to fully extend your elbow with each step forward.

Mobility Scooters

Go-Chair Travel Power Chair Power Chairs

Walkers

For balance, or if you are at risk for falling, a walker may be the perfect choice.  Rule of thumb: A standard walker without wheels is most stable.  Walkers with wheels may get you around faster, though, because you can put your weight on the walker as you move.  Rollators, or 4-wheeled walkers really keep you moving.   Review this MayoClinic.Com Slide Show: How to choose and use a walker for more info.

Choosing a wheelchair, except the most basic models or transport chairs, requires help from a nurse, doctor or therapist.  Once you’ve determined your requirements as to special features, type of wheelchair, back height, width, weight and support you need, it’s a matter of choosing the style that suits you.

Mepilex Border Self-Adherent Absorbent Foam Dressing If you have a bedsore, diabetic ulcer or other dermal ulcer, or you are caring for someone who does, it is critical that you are receiving assistance or advice from a medical specialist.  Treating pressure sores (bedsores) and dermal ulcers can be challenging as these wounds heal slowly and must be attended to carefully.  Treatment plans includes everything from pressure reduction to wound cleaning/debridement, wound dressings, hydrotherapy, antibiotics, dietary supplements and muscle spasm relief.  Even with the best of care, sometimes surgery is required.

Allegro’s wound care category has a variety of products designed to protect wounds and speed healing.  The type of products used depends on the stage and severity of the wound.  Below are our most popular wound care products for pressure sores, venous and arterial leg and foot ulcers.

Back pain relief is tricky.  First there is the business of reducing or eliminating the back pain.  Then there are products to prevent the pain from coming back, and if all else fails there are aids to make daily life less painful for those living with chronic back pain. 

Allegro Medical sells thousands of products and remedies designed to relieve, treat or prevent back pain.  Some products listed below are for those currently suffering from back pain, others are designed simply to reduce back stress for caregivers while moving and caring for patients. 

Note:  Back pain is so pervasive and its causes so varied that there is no simple answer on how to manage it.  I highly recommend that you consult your doctor or see a chiropractor in your quest for relief.  You may need a series of adjustments and/or some targeted exercises to eliminate or ease your back pain.
