Being A Kid Again: No Time Like the Present
Time is our most precious asset. It is free, but priceless. You can’t own time, but you can spend it any way you wish. Once lost, you can never gain that time back again.
Enjoying every moment with your kids, your recreational hobbies and your significant other lead to something we all strive for: Personal fulfillment, purpose and meaning in our lives.
You want to make the most of your time here on earth. The phrase “Life is short” echoes throughout mankind yet the majority of us take the things that matter most for granted. When you were young it seemed like the world was your oyster. You were filled with dreams, desires and goals to achieve. Being a kid again may not be an option but having more energy and motivation and regaining a youthful spirit may still be a possibility. Ask yourself the following questions:
- What would you do if you felt good and had no limitations?
- What would you do if you had only five years to live?
- What would you do if you had unlimited resources?
- What would you do if you knew you couldn’t fail?
- What do you feel you are best at?
- What are five things you like most about yourself?
- What energizes you the most?
- What moment of personal triumph do you remember most?
These thought-provoking questions may cause you to think about what is holding you back from being all you can be. We all have 24 hours in a day. With that fact understood, why is it that some people seem to get more accomplished than others? The answer may surprise you. Time isn’t the problem. It’s what you do with that time that matters most. Productivity depends on good health. Sometimes you just don’t feel like making the effort because your body isn’t performing properly. Performing at your peak level is imperative to living a productive life. In order to do so, your spine and joints must also function at their peak as well.
Stress from everyday activities can cause joint restrictions, otherwise known as “joint dysfunctions” or “subluxations,” many times without you even knowing it. When spinal joints become restricted in movement, the rest of the body can be affected in ways you never thought possible. Normal nerve communication is inhibited. Your health suffers. Your job suffers and ultimately, your lifestyle suffers. It’s difficult to concentrate on anything else when you are in pain. Symptoms such as pain and discomfort manifest as your body’s way of telling you something is wrong. Masking pain and discomfort will only provide temporary relief. For every cause there is an effect. Likewise, for every symptom there has to be a cause.
How Chiropractic Can Help You Live a Fulfilled Life
When one or more joints become restricted in the spine, it causes a lack of motion that, in turn, can cause an interruption of the nerve communication from the brain to the body. This interruption can affect the cells, tissues and organs of the body thereby inhibiting your performance and ability to live a more active lifestyle. Licensed doctors of chiropractic (such as those at The Joint Chiropractic), referred to as DCs, apply a gentle, targeted movement to the restricted joints to improve motion of the body’s spinal column and extremities, thereby enhancing nerve function. This highly controlled procedure is known as a chiropractic adjustment.
Routine chiropractic care often results in increased daily activity. Regular chiropractic adjustments can reduce muscle tension, frequently producing a decrease in stress-related conditions. By improving joint mobility, your physical performance and overall function are positively affected, thereby helping you feel good again and regaining the motivation to get things done.
What is holding you back from being a kid again? Consider the fact that if it’s not time then perhaps it’s your health. Have your spine checked for joint dysfunctions. Whether suffering from pain or not, keeping your body functioning at its peak may be one of the best investments you’ll ever make. More and more people are learning that chiropractic makes a much better vitamin than it does an aspirin. Don’t hold back any longer. Discover how millions of Americans have not only found relief from pain, but also a pathway to wellness and a healthier, more active lifestyle by making chiropractic part of their healthy habit regimen.
