Healthy Holidays with Chiropractic Care
By Donna Stark
For many people, the holiday season between Thanksgiving and New Year's Day represents the best of all things fun and festive. This is the time of year when family gets to see family, when food becomes the main centerpiece of all get-togethers, and when there are more functions to go to than outfits to wear. This is also a time when healthy habits get pushed to the wayside and a time that can cause frustration, disappointment, and extra stress. The good news is that by consuming a healthy diet, fitting in time for exercise, and seeing your local chiropractor at The Joint Chiropractic, you can avoid the negative and spend more time focusing on the positive this holiday season!
Staying Healthy this Holiday Season
When people hear the phrase holiday health, many only think about skipping that third helping of dessert. And although that is a good choice to make, there are also many other choices that can have a significant impact on the way you feel. Here's how you can avoid some of the holiday stressors that can make a joyful, festive season far less pleasant.
- Watch your indulgences - What used to be just a few holiday meals has turned into a complete season of eating, so stay focused on what you are consuming. Limit your indulging to only those amazing meals, served only on those special days, and avoid everything else, such as the daily homemade treats your coworkers bring in, the cocktails during the spontaneous holiday get-togethers, and the seasonal coffee drinks that are more dessert than coffee.
- Prioritize exercise - Getting distracted by everything that is going on and skipping your workout can seem easy during the holidays, but it's very important to maintain your fitness routine. If you are finding that your days are just getting away from you more often than not, then knock it out early in the morning before any obligations sidetrack you. Exercising helps reduce stress levels, maintain weight, and is an instant boost to the body's immune system and your mood!
- Visit The Joint Chiropractic - In addition to this being a festive holiday season, it's also cold and flu season, high-stress season, and "traveling-until-you-don't-want-to-travel-anymore" season. But by seeing your local chiropractor at The Joint Chiropractic, you may be able to help your body get through every possible season there is. Chiropractic care removes the joint and nerve restrictions in the spine which can help to improve your immune system, mobility, stress, and pain levels.
