Lisa Bruner – Q&A

Lisa Bruner, RDMS OB/GYN, Precious Creations LLC

How do you define a healthy lifestyle?
To me a healthy lifestyle is putting yourself first and listening to your body. Health isn’t just about fitness but is about all the components such as mind, body and spirit.

Try not to overwork, stress or over focus on things that you can’t control. Be a part of something like groups, church or have friends who can help ease some of the burdens of this craziness that we face daily. Enjoy life and all the amazing things at our fingertips but in moderation. Be mindful.

How did you come to practice in your career field?
I started my career in ultrasound nine years ago in Alaska. I have been in the medical field since I was 18 years old and have gained so much knowledge and wanted to pursue a career in the field. Once I got my degree in sonography, I moved to Arizona. I get to travel all Northern Arizona helping growing families.

WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST HEALTH, WELLNESS TIP?
Listen to your body. If you feel like you are not being listened to by your provider, seek a second opinion.

Usually, our body knows what it needs. Maintain proper diet, exercise even if it’s just a walk around the park, and find something you are passionate about.

WHAT ARE YOUR PRACTICES TO KEEP YOURSELF, YOUR FAMILY HEALTHY?
My family and I love to be adventurous; I believe that movement and motivation are super important to being healthy, mentally and physically.

We enjoy camping, fishing and hikes. My boys are into sports and are constantly motivating me to stay active. As well, my business keeps me busy and mobile; I am moving heavy equipment around.

WHAT IS YOUR NEXT GOAL IN YOUR HEALTH, WELLNESS JOURNEY?
My next goal is to learn how to mountain bike outside of my comfort zone. My husband is athletic and wants to challenge my bike skills — lol.

I would love to get in my best physical and mental shape this year. I love to learn and this is the year of new growth personally and in my business life.
