Finding Your Spring Groove
By Donna Stark
Were you surprised at how quickly spring has sprung? Are you wondering where winter has disappeared to? If you spent the past few months busier than ever you may not have been able to get the amount of hibernation time you were hoping for. And that could mean you may need some help getting into the spring groove. Fortunately, your local chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic have put together a list of activities that will help enhance your overall health and get you physically, mentally, and emotionally prepared for the change in seasons. Take a look.
It's tough being stuck indoors all winter, so take a step outside and enjoy everything that Mother Nature has to offer. Being outdoors can help bring balance into your life by reducing your stress, improving your immune system, and increasing your fitness. Grab a friend and go for evening walks, start a new garden, or explore the local parks and trails around your home. Even just a few minutes of sunshine in the mornings will do wonders for your days.
Clearing out the clutter and all the unused items from your home can make a significant impact on the way you feel. It can reduce the risk of illness, decrease stress, and balance out those wild mood swings we often fall prey to. Get the entire family involved by choosing a weekend to deep clean the home and then maintain that cleanliness and orderliness with assigned chores throughout the week.
Exercise can help to reduce your stress levels, increase endorphins, and alleviate pain, so try to incorporate as much as you can into your daily routine. The general recommendation is to exercise for at least 30 minutes every day, and if you choose activities you enjoy and look forward to, that shouldn't be too hard to accomplish. So, go ahead and step outside! Enjoy the beautiful weather and try to have fun with your workouts while you can!
Treat Your Body
It's time for some tender loving care. You've been cooped up for too long and the brutal winter weather has done a number on your body, hasn't it? So, why don't you treat yourself to some chiropractic care? Chiropractic care is a great way to relax, lower your blood pressure, and soothe your aches and pains away. It's also a good way to improve your flexibility, range of motion, and balance. Do you plan on being physically active this spring? You definitely need chiropractic care then!
