How Work and Life Can Team Up Instead of Compete
By Sandy Schroeder
It’s a familiar problem when we wonder how to get the work done and still show up for the family -- or simply find a little time to pause.
In a perfect world, you would be eager to handle work projects, and then ready to head home and enjoy dinner with your family, but unexpected deadlines or new challenges may change the flow. When hours at work stretch out or invade the weekends, you may simply wave at your kids in the morning, and tuck them into their beds when you finally get home at night.
Your Chiropractor Has Answers
Making room for everything and making it a satisfying arrangement could start with a visit to The Joint Chiropractic clinic near you. Health, wellness and fitness solutions happen every day, thanks to the efforts of the dedicated chiropractors at The Joint.
When you come in, you and your chiropractor can discuss the demands of your daily schedule, and the needs of your family, coupled with any pain or other issues that you have.
As you sort through things, a gentle targeted spinal adjustment may be the solution to relieve pain and restore an overall sense of well-being. Then you may have new energy and alertness to power through the day, with leftover time to play with your kids in the evening. Your chiropractor will have some good ideas to make it all work.
Rearranging schedules – Taking an afternoon off once a week or fitting in a weekend getaway to go camping with your family may be a good start.
Beefing up family time – Setting aside evening time to talk and read with your kids, or take short walks after dinner, can put everything into a better perspective.
Keeping everyone active – Bringing the whole family in for health profiles could spot fitness gaps that need to be fixed. Your spouse may benefit from a weekly yoga or tai chi class. Your kids may love weekend time in the backyard for soccer practice or hoops, and you may be inspired to launch a new walking, jogging or running routine.
Being creative – As you strive to clear your head and stay in touch with your family, this may be the time to take a new photography or watercolor class while your kids try pottery or graphics. Post everybody’s efforts on a family bulletin board (the refrigerator in most homes), and enjoy the interaction.
