How do you know when it's time to talk to a doctor about something that's bothering you? At Somi Javaid MD & Associates we have these conversations everyday! It's inevitable, we are ALL aging. Whether you are in your 20's, 30's, 40's, 50's or beyond, practice living life to the fullest. Not by throwing caution to the wind, but in fact just the opposite. We can live fully and make life’s tough decisions by first carefully paying attention, and then by evaluating our unique personal needs. What is it that you most value? It’s hard to make difficult decisions if you don't know the answer!

"When your values are clear to you, making decisions becomes easier."—Roy Disney
Can you identify what sustains and energizes you, instead of what depletes and wears you down? No matter what you are contemplating, knowing yourself is only step one. Respecting yourself for who you are is the next level in the art of decision making. Its the only way to give yourself a chance at happiness...
"If you are not the hero of your own story, then you're missing the whole point of your humanity."— Steve Maraboli.
Determining, and then choosing, what’s best for us can be difficult. Most of us are engrossed in our daily routines, but let's practice living on purpose right now… Decide what you care about and what you want. What weighs on your heart? Identify what you don’t want. Don’t apologize for it. Be true to it and find out what happens! Just take the next right step.* By living on purpose, taking time to know what we want most, our routines can be tweaked and in time changes can occur. Our decisions ultimately shape our lives. Let's choose wisely!
*If you are considering a noninvasive body treatment...or skincare service...or a different birth control for example, then your next right step might simply be to call us for a consultation. We are here to help you make the decision that's right for you!
