Creating a Healthier Life With Chiropractic Care
By Donna Stark
You've got a month before the year ends and a new one begins so what should be the first thing you do today? Well, you could ditch the sugary treat that's in your hand right now or make sure you get to bed on time tonight, but if you really want to end the year on a healthy note, you will consider seeing your local chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic more regularly. Routine chiropractic care, and healthier lifestyle choices, are exactly what you need to think about before this stressful year ends. Here's why they are all so important.
If you know what "happy wife, happy life" means, then you can understand what your local chiropractors mean when they say "happy spine, healthy life." Routine chiropractic care helps to alleviate pain, reduce stress, restore function, improve sleep, and increase mobility. There is no easier or safer way to improve your overall health and wellness than regular adjustments, so start moving in the direction of The Joint Chiropractic! You certainly won't regret it!
Staying physically active throughout the remainder of the holiday season may be hard to do (those Hallmark movies can really do a number on us), but you have to make it a priority! Remember, an active body keeps the spine happy. Too much of a sedentary lifestyle can place added stress and strain on the joints in the body, so try to get up and move during those favorite shows of yours and aim for at least 30 minutes of exercise every day.
Choosing the Right Foods
Your spine enjoys healthy food as much as you do, so fill up on those items that will promote optimal bone health and growth. Unsure of what to grab while at the store? Load your cart with dark greens such as kale, broccoli, and spinach. Enjoy the sweeter side of life with yogurt and berries. And don't forget the salmon and avocados too!
Decorating and Undecorating Your Home
Whether you stick to a couple of wreaths on your windows or go all out by lighting up your neighborhood, it's important to pay attention to how you use your body! Make sure you are practicing proper lifting techniques as you decorate and undecorate your home this year. Here are some easy tips to follow.
- Bend at your knees
- Let your leg muscles do most of the work
- Avoid any awkward twists or turns
- Clear your pathways
- Ask for help when needed
