Botox Day is next Tuesday January 21st BUT WE WILL BE HAVING SOME HOURS EVERY DAY THAT WEEK!!! We will have discounts on Botox and fillers such as Juvederm. Botox is $13/unit or $195/syringe (normally $16/unit and $240/syringe). Fillers are also 10% off. Juvederm is the most common filler for “raising” facial wrinkles. Voluma is an injectable filler that augments and lifts the cheeks and Volbella and Vollure subtly augment the lips and improve perioral wrinkles.
Mused after setting the DVR to record tonight’s college national championship football game. Probably the Bengals next quarterback, Joe Burrow, is starting for LSU.
(Considering surgery this winter? CareCredit Financing has a 12 months same as cash when the surgery is scheduled in January and completed by March 1.)
Ways to Battle Procrastination
Yes, we all procrastinate at times. But researchers believe it is on the rise. Why? We are inundated with addictive things on our phones and computers from algorithms trying to sell us on something or consume our time. Studies show that 15-20% of adults chronically procrastinate. The problem with procrastination is that it can cause stress and wreak havoc on work and relationships. Procrastinators are more likely to have anxiety disorders and depression.
What to do?
Revamp your goals. Be specific and scheduled. Divide large goals into smaller subgoals. Reward yourself after accomplishing any goal so you have something to look forward to.
(Did You Know? Procrastination is defined as “deferring commitments even though you know about the negative consequences”.)
Start small. Make the subgoal something achievable. Personally, setting a time limit on a project that is hard works for me. For example, I scheduled myself for 30 minutes to start putting Christmas decorations away. Afterwards I allowed myself a glass of wine. I’ll work on more another day.
Eliminate distractions. However, adding music or something pleasant during the activity can be helpful.
Assess your values. Things that you value and that are important can be followed through easier. Also, understanding the larger goal (losing weight, eating healthier, etc. to look and feel better) can help avoid delaying the effort.
Dr. Steel from the University of Calgary who wrote “The Procrastination Equation” feels that the MOST IMPORTANT thing to combat procrastination is getting enough SLEEP!

LA DOLCE VITA, JOIE DE VIVRE:
I downloaded the app The Food Network, over the holidays and even signed up for a year’s subscription to watch live and recorded videos of various chefs making their dishes. So far it’s been fun and informative. Recommend at least getting the app.
All that cared for me were exceptional. Laura especially calmed my nerves and gave amazing care. Deanna was that extra care & confidence I needed. Diane was kind and amazing. Dr. McKenna is always so caring & I couldn’t be happier. No improvement needed. –H.K.
