Want to Be Happier? Realign Your Body and Your Mind
By Sandy Schroeder
In our fast-spinning culture, happiness often shows up as a very cold beer or a very rich dinner. But lasting satisfaction and contentment seldom come with the meal.
Finding happiness, the kind that makes it hard to stop grinning and laughing, takes something stronger and more effective. That’s where your mind and body meet and give you a boost.
Chiropractic Has Answers
It can start with a whole person realignment of your spine and your body at your local chiropractor, The Joint Chiropractic. And it can move on to a mindfulness meditation that eases the brain and lifts the spirit.
Starting with chiropractic, with a concentrated focus on spinal health, your chiropractor’s wellness center may offer the whole person care you need now. The kind of whole person treatment that makes you glad to be alive.
It starts with a spinal adjustment that evaluates the health of your spine to correct misalignments. From there, the effects can be far-reaching, relieving back, neck or sciatica pain. Treatment could also focus on arthritis, chronic pain, knees, ankles or elbows. Or it could simply be an overall healthy realignment to make sure everything in your body is working at a peak level.
Some people report feeling more energy, enjoying better digestion and experiencing improved metabolism.
During your visit, the chiropractor will want to learn more about your schedule and review your medical history. The goal will be to seek relief for any pain you have and keep your daily schedule running, without pain medication or surgery.
You may choose to set up weekly 15-minute adjustment sessions to maintain peak health and help the chiropractor catch any minor pains before they settle in.
Once you have your chiropractic assistance set up, you can explore mindfulness meditation on a simple level, or try ongoing classes. The idea is satisfaction comes with being engaged, doing good and focusing on the present, according to healthharvard.edu.
This can be as simple as sitting in a quiet spot on your patio, focusing on your breathing and letting the events of your mind stream by, as you simply watch without judging.
I try to do this a couple times a week and am always glad when I do. Lots of accumulated tension and worries leave and my mind clears. Health experts believe mindfulness meditation can ease stress, head off depression, and reduce anxiety.
If you seriously need a break from multi-tasking as you stay connected, but you gradually lose your real connections with those around you, mindfulness meditation may have answers for you. Consider pairing chiropractic and meditation to get a better grip on everything you are doing.
