Chiropractic Tip: How to Let Go of Stress for Real
By Sandy Schroeder
As fall surges ahead, you may see stress symptoms popping up everywhere. Your kids may be bickering, the dog may be barking, and you may be hiding out whenever you can. A little stress motivates us, but a lot of stress makes every day a big deal. Before your stress gets out of hand, find out what chiropractic can do to reestablish a healthy balance.
Finding a Chiropractic Balance
Stop by The Joint Chiropractic clinic in your community and find out how to step back from stress. The Joint’s doctors of chiropractic help people of all ages deal with issues of stress, pain, fitness and health every day.
When you come in, get to know your chiropractor and talk about the stress that you and your family have. There may be too many activities for kids, too many projects for you, and too many tasks for your spouse. Finding ways to back off and calm down may start with a gentle targeted spinal adjustment to relax the body mentally and physically. The spine houses the central nervous system that keeps us ticking. When that system is improved, everything else may feel better too. Individuals often notice calmness, better sleep, more energy and improved awareness.
Using weekly 15-minute spinal adjustments may be the best way to keep everybody on track and moving ahead. You and your chiropractor can monitor progress and pinpoint areas that need work. Overloaded schedules, lack of family time, intermittent workouts and too many screens may all show up on your targeted-to-fix list.
Rethink schedules - If you and your kids are bouncing from one commitment to the next, it may be time to evaluate deadlines and rethink daily routines. Leaving time for family dinners, evening time at home, and open spots for biking or hiking on the weekend may lower stress levels.
Fix daily workouts - Finding spots in everyone’s schedule for at least 30 minutes of walking, running, jogging or working out will siphon off some of tension and boost the spirit.
Cut screen time - Ongoing screen time can easily mushroom with everything that is going on. In the process, time for evening walks, quiet conversations or baking and cooking may slip away. Shut down phones at dinnertime and move TV, tablets and phones out of everyone’s bedroom to ensure better sleep.
When you are ready to kick the stress habit, stop by The Joint Chiropractic clinic near you. Affordable personal healthcare packages and plans eliminate insurance hassle. Evening and weekend hours make visits simple. No appointments are needed.
