    To all the moms out there who love unconditionally, we see you. We appreciate you. We are so grateful for you. Today is all yours – Happy Mother’s Day! ...

    Food choices – let’s face it, sometimes they’re a challenge. We know what we SHOULD do, but don’t always make the right decision. Here’s a tip – nourish your body with smart food choices by doing meal prep for the week PLUS planning a “treat” day to the menu. Let’s not call it a cheat day. Having a regularly scheduled treat day each week can actually be good for weight loss by preventing binges, reducing cravings, providing a mental break from the norm, and boosting metabolism—if it's done in a healthy way.

    The weather is heating up and increasing your water intake has never been more important. Tea and coffee (in moderation) can also be counted as “water”. How much water do you drink per day?

    Can we be real for a minute? They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but adding cooking to our “things to do” in the morning somehow doesn’t make the list. How many of you grab something quick before you run? Here’s a tip: If it’s not in the house – you won’t grab it. 😉 Stock up on healthy foods you can grab on the go, or better yet – ever make a frittata for supper? Save a piece for work the next day. It can be devoured cold or at room temperature for a healthy breakfast on the run!

    Born in Long Beach, CA, Andrea Liddle’s family relocated to the Pacific Northwest as she began grade school. In 2021 Andrea became a “Phoenician” when she settled in Gilbert with her husband of three decades!

    Andrea comes to us with three years’ experience in the healthcare space and when asked about her “why”, she replied, “Because I love the connection we get to create with our patients. It really is about connecting and caring!”

    In her space time one will find Andrea on an travel adventure with her husband family of four daughters, four sons and 2 beautiful grandchildren.

    Theresa Martinez joins our team as Front Office Coordinator. She’s a native Phoenician born and raised in the great state of Arizona! We love working with Theresa for the joyful attitude she brings to the practice each day. She genuinely loves helping people, and that’s a very big part of what she does at Activated Health & Wellness. When she’s not at work, one may find her watching sports in some capacity. She’s an avid Dodgers fan and also catches as many ASU softball games as possible! She loves hanging out with her family and four dogs. When she’s spending some downtime alone, you may find her consuming her all-time favorite book, Gone with the Wind. If you haven’t met Theresa yet, you will! She’s the first smile you see when you enter the office. Come on in, join us in welcoming Theresa! ...

    Ladies – you’ve got this! No matter what the activity – engage in some form of exercise for at least 20 minutes a day. Walk around the block at lunch time, take the stairs instead of the elevator. Use your desk for a handful of quick presses! Whatever you do, #activate.

    Men – you want to get back to running but it’s been a minute – or perhaps years. 😉 Start off with a walk, a sprint, a jog. You’ll be back to running in no time - but do it the healthy way. Warm your body up to the activity, stretch – don’t push. Simply get out there and #activate.

    We believe that mindfulness is important to do daily. Here are 3 mindfulness habits you can practice every day:
    1. Stop for a moment to appreciate the beauty of nature, such as a sunset or sunrise
    2. Practice deep breathing- in through your nose and out through your mouth
    3. Take time each day to do something that you enjoy
