Your health, it's kind of like a bucket

Jul 31, 2019

When talking to patients and clients about their health sometimes we use the analogy of a bucket with holes in it. 

These a holes are the outputs of mental and physical energy in our daily lives whether that be the demands of sport, work or maintaining our relationships etc.

We top up the bucket by nourishing our body with inputs such as sleep, nutrition and other forms of rest and recovery etc.

The aim is to keep the bucket full, it gives us the capacity to handle the stresses that life throws at us biologically, psychologically and socially.

At the  Movement Assessment Technologies, we see our role as health and fitness professionals as to help people build a "bigger bucket" by developing movement capacity, competency, variability and confidence through an active treatment approach and education.
