Comfortable with Uncomfortable


Health changes are uncomfortable. 

Uncomfortable because it challenges us & takes effort. But, change is essential. Essential for health progression

and for healthy aging. And, the sooner changes are made, the better the quality of life.


How do we find comfort in being uncomfortable?

  1. Purpose - Know WHY you’re willing to create change.
  2. Mindset - Commit to changing based on your purpose.
  3. Venture - Willingness to try new foods, activities, schedules, etc.
  4. Coach - Seek a trainer & classes, to learn the basics.
  5. Visualize - Envision situations before it happens.
  6. Fun & Focus - Find the fun in what you’re doing & focus on doing your best.

You have two choices: Choose to be uncomfortable by making health changes. Or, be uncomfortable because of not making health changes.


Change may be uncomfortable. But, change can also be exciting & empowering! It’s all a matter of perception


Ask yourself if you’re willing to be uncomfortable for better health?

Treating Sciatica

Warning: Traffic Drivers

Here on Oahu traffic is a part of daily life. Whether it's a 30 minute upwards to an hour or hour and a half, it's adding sitting time to your day!
Sciatica is a common condition that affects many that have to sit in traffic on top of sitting at work! It is recognized as a pain that begins in the buttocks area, often on one side, that radiates down into the glute (buttocks) and down the back of the leg. It's literally a "pain in the butt"!

Pain Proof your Commute

Here on Oahu traffic is unfortunately inevitable! Here are tips to consider to prevent or reduce back pain from your driving:


1. Empty back pocket - Mostly for men; remove wallet from back pocket to avoid tilting hips and straining lower back.


2. Posture in - Try to avoid bending from the spine when getting into your vehicle.


3. Adjust seat back angle - Set angle at a comfortable position where the ears, shoulders, and hips are in alignment.
