Are you making a New Year’s Resolution? Setting goals? Promising yourself that you will exercise more, eat less, be more organized, see more friends or do some other activity that could transform your life? The beginning of a new year is a great time to look ahead and think about the changes you would like to make. But, it’s also a great time to reflect on and appreciate all you have accomplished in the past year. What went well? What made you happy? What change did you make that made a difference? It’s easy to just look ahead and take for granted what you have done well, but you deserve better than that. You deserve recognition for your accomplishments big and small. So congratulate yourself first and then you can build off all the great things you have already done.
We urge you as you make your plans for the new year to remember your annual breast screening exam. A mammogram is a simple way you can care for yourself. It is the best way to detect cancers early, when they are easiest to treat. The American Cancer Society recommends yearly mammograms for women over 40. You can call now to make your appointment so that you won’t forget.
We wish you a very happy and healthy New Year!
