We’ve all heard the motto before: “New Year, New Me”. While it’s usually declared with the best intentions; the hype generally wears down within a few months, and old habits take precedence over new resolutions. The problem with most of us when it comes to sticking to new year’s resolution is having the right network and tools in place for when things get tough. That doesn’t need to be the reason this year! CVS pharmacy has the tools and supplies you need to help you successfully pursue your goals; regardless of what they might be.
Weight Loss and Health
Many people have a goal to lose weight in the new year. The MinuteClinic at CVS Pharmacy has partnered with DASH for Health to offer weight loss services; putting a new meaning to this goal. A nurse practitioner will help you develop a personalized plan, set goals, and keep you on track during your journey. After conducting an overall assessment, the MinuteClinic nurse practitioner will meet with you for one on one consultations to be a support system to you and help ensure you are effectively improving your health.
In addition to reaching a healthy weight, smoking cessation is a great way to improve your health in the new year. The MinuteClinic’s Start to Stop smoking cessation program pairs patients with a trained practitioner who will assess the patient’s nicotine addiction and create a customized cessation plan! This is a great way to help patients quit at their own pace. CVS has upped this initiative even more by making the decision in 2014 to stop selling tobacco products in all of their stores.
Saving money is a big new year’s resolution for most people. CVS has several really good ways to save and spend wisely. ExtraCare Rewards and the allow you to save and to earn extra ExtraBucks to use on your household purchases. You can even earn rewards by filling your prescriptions with the ExtraCare Pharmacy & Health Rewards program! You’ll earn $5 ExtraBucks for every 10 scripts you fill!
The MinuteClinic can also save you HUNDREDS of dollars! They cover such a wide range of minor injuries and illnesses, you can save yourself an emergency room visit (and bill) during those times. They can tend to things like; ear infections, pink eye, bronchitis, burns, sprains, bites and more! It’s a nice an added bonus that if you get your flu shot at a CVS Pharmacy or MinuteClinic location you will receive a $5 off $25 coupon (or a $5 target giftcard if you are vaccinated at a CVS inside Target location).
Some people loop travel in with their new year resolution to save money. To others, traveling more is a standalone goal. Either way, CVS Pharmacy can help you be prepared and work out the logistics for your trip. The Pre-travel consultations offered by the MinuteClinic can help you with vaccinations for your international trips, removing a lot of that hassle and stress.
The general consensus of most new year’s resolutions is to have a more balanced and wholesome well rounded. It makes sense to strive towards this at pretty much any part of the year… but the beginning of a new has a nice ring to it. It signals a fresh start, and a new chapter in the journey of life. What you make of the new year is completely up to you, but CVS can help you make your plans solid.
