How to Calm Down and Have a Cool Fall
By Sandy Schroeder
If you are knee deep in fall plans, it may be time to pause. Stop for a few minutes and take a close look at where you and your family are headed. In the midst of school projects and sports, work deadlines and plans for the weekend, you may need some quiet time for sit down suppers with good food and great conversation.
Or this may be the weekend for one more family campout. At the same time, chiropractic assistance may help you reset your compass and pull everything together.
See Your Chiropractor
Stop by The Joint Chiropractic clinic near you and discover how much fun wellness can be. The Joint’s doctors of chiropractic can help you and your family start with checkups and specific health tips.
When you come in, your chiropractor will focus on spinal health to help all of you enjoy the best overall health. The spine encases the central nervous system that controls everything that we do. That brain-to-body communication network keeps you powering ahead from morning to night. When the spine is healthy, you may thrive, too.
A gentle targeted spinal adjustment may ease aches and pains and generate an overall feeling of well-being with better sleep, more alertness and lasting energy.
You and your family may use weekly 15-minute spinal adjustments to stay up for all of the fall commotion. Your chiropractor can monitor your progress and catch any new issues before they have a chance to settle in. As you regain your balance you may want to focus on posture, workspaces, overloaded schedules, lagging fitness or family time.
Avoid that digital slump - If everyone at your house spends too much time hunched over phones and tablets, it’s time to straighten up and head outside for awhile. Make sure everyone at your house takes lots of screen breaks with a new outdoor sport, hobby, or other diversion.
Improve your work mode - Make sure your workspace and your kids’ at home computer areas are well equipped. Monitors should be at eye level. Chairs should have good shoulder and back support and feet should be flat on the floor. Sit up straight and take hourly breaks to walk or stretch.
Focus on fitness and family time - Find ways to keep everybody moving at least 30 minutes every day. While you are at it, find ways to sit down with your family to have breakfast, enjoy dinner, or have an evening dessert. Staying fit and talking everyday forms the glue that every family needs to stay connected.
Stop by The Joint Chiropractic clinic in your community to find out about affordable personal healthcare plans that eliminate the hassle of insurance. Weekend and evening hours are available and walk-in visits are welcome. No appointments are needed.
