When Stress Won't Let Go, Chiropractic Can Help
By Sandy Schroeder
If you are always on the edge of stress, you may need to rethink your approach to your daily life. Sometimes family demands, financial burdens, health or work issues can generate worries that never really let go. Then sleeplessness, irritability, foggy thinking and anxiety show up too.
If you are dealing with this sort of stress on a regular basis, you may want to consider how chiropractic may help. Chiropractic may be a way to find your balance.
Regaining Your Balance
Gentle, targeted spinal adjustments may generate far-reaching pain relief, and an overall sense of well-being with more alertness and energy, and less stress.
The spine encases the central nervous system that controls almost everything the body does. When that brain-to-body communication is working well, overall health is often improved, too.
When the body enjoys a better balance, it may be easier to handle daily stress too. At the same time, weekly 15-minute spinal adjustments may also be the right time to try additional stress reduction tactics.
Walk away from worry – Walking 30 minutes a day is considered a key fitness plan, but it is also a great way to siphon off stress. The minute you step out the door you may begin to relax and regroup.
Use your breath – Deep breathing can help you let go of tension. When stress begins to build, close the door or step away. Find a quiet spot and and take five deep breaths in and out, letting your belly move forward with each inhalation. Imagine your worries floating away. Use this simple breath exercise to ease your stress whenever you begin to tense up.
Try yoga or tai chi – Observe a class and talk with an instructor about your issues. Both yoga and tai chi are considered moving meditations that focus the mind and body to ease stress.
Stay connected – Reach out to friends and family to talk through your issues, and find ways to help others whenever you can. Use face-to-face interactions to get feedback and give reassurance and assistance, taking breaks from electronics, and shutting down phones and tablets before bedtime.
If stress and anxiety continue, you may want to see your doctor and a psychologist to work through the issues.
