Take Care of Yourself, Let Chiropractic Help
By Sandy Schroeder
Most of us are caretakers in one form or another, but the COVID-19 crisis may make it even more important that we become caretakers for ourselves too, according to the Mayo Clinic.
As demands build and anxieties and worries keep pace, you may find you have new aches and pains, sleep less, and sometimes just lose energy. The Joint Chiropractic clinic in your neighborhood is ready when you are to help you find the solutions that you need.
Their licensed chiropractors help people of all ages find natural relief without pain prescriptions or surgery. When you come in, you will find out how spinal health impacts overall health.
The spine allows us to weave through the day and the central nervous system housed inside supplies the needed brain-to-body communication.
A gentle targeted spinal adjustment may help you turn the page with less aches and pain, more energy, better sleep or a sharper awareness. As you evaluate the benefits, you may want to use weekly 15-minute spinal adjustments to keep the wellness flow going.
At the same time you may want to use more self-care tips from the Mayo Clinic.
Treat Your Body Right
Cover all of the bases.
Exercise regularly to boost mood and shed stress - Use a mat, small weights, treadmill or stationary bike to stay active at home.
Maintain a healthy diet - Skip the pizza and burgers and choose fresh veggies, fruits, lean meats and poultry and fish, along with healthy oils, whole grains and nuts.
Limit alcohol, skip tobacco and drugs - COVID-19 affects the lungs and smoking compromises the lungs increasing the risk.
Hold the screen time down - Turn off electronics and get outside daily. Use a quiet time before bedtime to just sit and talk or read.
Give Your Mind a Break
Eliminate stress triggers with these tips.
Maintain a regular schedule - Your mental health benefits when you have a fixed time for meals, bedtime, work and exercise. Build in time for hobbies, music, and reading too.
Limit the news flow - Stay up with the news but take breaks from it too. A steady flow of news about COVID-19 can be overwhelming and confusing for kids.
Keep going - Time at home may seem unlimited, but staying busy will make it feel more normal. If you work at home, try for a regular daily session and leave the weekends open for cooking special dinners, watching favorite movies or playing games.
