Chiropractic Tip: Balance Your Work and Your Passions
By Sandy Schroeder
I recently read about Simon Short's book that traces his path from depression to a balanced life of surfing and working. His book, The Average Surfer's Guide: To Travel, Waves and Progression, explains how he made it all work.
Short said, "As we grow older, we see passions and hobbies as fringe activities. We don't go surfing every day because we need to go to work and get a house and do everything else. I learned to reverse that view and get an equal balance."
Finding Your Balance
If you are looking for a similar way to balance everything, The Joint Chiropractic clinic near you may have the right answers. The Joint Chiropractic's doctors of chiropractic help countless individuals achieve a balance in health, wellness and fitness.
When you come in, bring your issues and questions and get to know your chiropractor. Whatever the focus, anxiety, pain, depression, workload or just general worries, chiropractic may help.
Starting with a focus on spinal health, your chiropractor will explain how your spine and the central nervous system housed inside often impact everything that we do. The spine keeps us mobile and the central nervous system controls all of our brain-to-body communication. When the spine is healthy, we may be too.
On the Wellness Path
A gentle targeted spinal adjustment may provide natural pain relief without medications or surgery. At the same time you may feel more energetic, less stressed, and more awareness. Benefits are unique to each individual.
As you assess your benefits, weekly 15-minute spinal adjustments may provide the balance needed to keep you at your peak, helping you move forward to deal with other issues like stress, family demands, weight gain, or work loads.
Lighten the stress load - Take short breaks to breathe deeply or meditate when the pressure builds. Take refuge in music, hobbies, or biking or hiking. When you find ways to just let go, life will look a lot better.
Shed those extra pounds - Your numbers and your attitude may improve when you drop a few pounds. Start walking every day and keep a food diary to track everything that you eat. Keep meals healthy with lots of home-cooked options and visits to your local farmers market.
Figure out your family - Take a close look at your family's health, habits and needs. More outdoor exercise and less screen time might help everyone. Active weekends with camping, biking or hiking could work too. Take a little time every day to just talk, walk, or share a meal.
Reel your workload in - There will always be more projects and deadlines, but your health really should come first. If you are way overloaded, see about delegating, reducing routine stuff, and building breaks in wherever you can.
Stop by The Joint Chiropractic clinic near you to find out about affordable personal healthcare plans that eliminate the hassle of insurance. No appointments are needed and weekend and evening hours are available.
