Chiropractic Tip: Run Around the Block Every Morning
By Sandy Schroeder
Sometimes the simplest things really are pretty good. In this case, committing to one quick run around the block every morning could be a wise way to cement your fitness routine. Whatever else you do to walk, run, stretch or work out, you will have already committed to staying fit and taking care of yourself on a daily basis, which just might carry through the rest of the day.
WellAndGood.com endorsed this idea as a way to do a moving meditation, feel centered and productive, and set the tone for the whole day. Psychologist and fitness expert Janine Delaney, PhD, said, "That positivity and that mental attitude will carry through the rest of the day with you, because you've already told yourself psychologically 'I care about myself.'"

Bring your issues and goals in and discover how perfecting spinal health may play out in better overall health. The spine allows us to weave through our day, and the central nervous system housed inside coordinates all of our brain-to-body communication. When both of the systems are working well, we do too.
A gentle targeted spinal adjustment may ease any aches and pains that you have, and provide a fresh new base for energy, mental clarity, and improved digestion or metabolism. Benefits are unique to each individual. As you assess yours, you may choose to use weekly 15-minute spinal adjustments to be at your best, and to work on more health and fitness options. You may want to drop a few pounds, tighten up your work schedule, or improve your workouts beyond those morning runs.
Shed those extra pounds - Emphasize eating healthy, keep a food diary, and turn eating into dining. Never park yourself in front of the computer or TV to eat solo. Instead shop for fresh ingredients and create home-cooked meals to share with family and friends.
Rethink your work schedule - If you routinely sit for hours at a time every day, and then head home to sit some more, it's time to start moving. Build small breaks into your morning and afternoon, and allow five- to 10-minute breaks for each hour that you sit.
Wake up your workouts - If you love the idea of running around the block every morning, imagine what else you can do to stay active throughout the day. You might devote half of your lunch to yoga or get the whole family outside before dinner to walk, jog or play soccer.
When you are ready to extend your health reach, stop by The Joint Chiropractic clinic near you. Affordable healthcare plans eliminate the hassle of insurance and weekend and evening hours make visits easy. No appointments are needed.
