What’s the Problem?
Some of the most common problems associated with the holidays are:
- Eating too much food
- Eating too much sugar
- Not getting enough exercise
- Being under too much stress
- Being exposed to colds and flu
You can avoid these common issues and have the best holiday ever with a few chiropractic kernels of wisdom!
Chiropractic Health Tip No. 1: Go Green
When you’re at a party this holiday season, make sure you go green first. Load up your plate with as many green vegetables as you can, followed by other vegetables, lean proteins and just a smidgen of the tasty treats you’ve been looking forward to. Also, try to eat a light and healthy snack or meal before you go to a part; that way, you’ll set yourself up to eat less.
Chiropractic Holiday Health Tip No. 2: Exercise Early!
It can be tough, but try to get up an extra half hour early in the morning to get up and go for a walk or do some other type of exercise. This time of year can tend to bring on the blues, and exercise helps with that. But, people also tend to fall off the exercise wagon this time of year, which is why you have to make it a priority. It will help you to feel better and stay healthy this holiday season!
Chiropractic Holiday Health Tip No. 3: Jingle All the Way – To the Chiropractor’s Office
This time of year can get busy, but you have to make the time to see your chiropractor regularly. Keeping up with your chiropractic adjustments can help you deal with stress and help you to feel better, which will make your holidays a lot jollier. Plus, you can help to avoid getting sick though a better supported immune system provided by a spine that is aligned – you just can’t go wrong with visits to your chiropractor!
