Win the 10,000 Steps Battle With Old School Tricks

By Sandy Schroeder

No matter how hard I try, I never log in enough steps. At the end of the day, I fall short of the recommended 10,000 steps. If you can relate, suggests some old school tricks that get back to basics and make it happen.

If you sit all day everyday, you know how bad your body can feel at the end of the day. I often wrap up the day tired and stiff, vowing I will turn things around.

WellAndGood suggests moving whenever the spirit moves you. If you feel like running around the block before breakfast, do it. Or run to the park with your kids after work.

In-between slip outside every chance you get for a few minutes of deep breathing, stretching or walking. Use your morning and afternoon breaks and part of lunch when you can. The sunshine and fresh air will lift your spirits and encourage you to move more.

How Chiropractic Can Help

Once you find yourself moving more, you might add chiropractic to the mix. The Joint Chiropractic clinic near you focuses on health, wellness, fitness and natural pain resolution every day.

Drop in and find out how it works. Your chiropractor will explain how spinal health can help you improve overall health. The spine and the central nervous system housed inside control everything that we do from that first morning stretch to that last end-of-the-day yawn.

When the spine works well, we do too. A gentle targeted spinal adjustment may ease your aches and pains, and trigger some new energy to keep you moving. As you evaluate your benefits you may want to do weekly 15-minute spinal adjustments to focus on a group of issues. Along with staying active, you may want to redo your work schedule, drop a few pounds, or eliminate that digital slump that seems to show up everywhere.

Make work flow better for you - Take a hard look at your schedule and cut out the fat as you delegate, make use of your most productive times of the day, and build in a few getaway days.

Eat healthier and lose more - Skip the processed chips, cookies, pastries and pizzas, and buy more fresh fruits, vegetables, fish, poultry, and whole grains. Then cook at home and do some sit-down dinners with friends and family.

Do away with the digital slump - If you are still hunching over all of your screens, it's time to straighten up. Keep all screens at eye level and use a chair with good support instead of couches or floors. You will look better and your back will feel better.

When you are ready to get started, stop by The Joint Chiropractic clinic near you. The Joint Chiropractic provides over 450 clinics nationwide to serve you wherever you are. Affordable personal healthcare plans eliminate the hassle of insurance and weekend and evening hours make visits simple. No appointments are needed.
