Prepare for the Holidays With Chiropractic in Mind

By Brandi Goodman 

The holiday season brings times of stress and a mounting to-do list that seems to never end. In preparation, you should keep some chiropractic tips in mind so you're better able to accomplish all of the tasks at hand. It will help you stay pain-free so you can get your work done without being stuck in bed with senseless aches. 

Stretch Before Anything Physical

No matter what it is you're doing, you should stretch out your body well beforehand. It helps to keep your joints flexible and prevent injury. Whether you're hanging holiday decorations, heading out to shop, planning on cooking, or otherwise, stretching is necessary to keep back and body pain at bay.

Stick to Your Sleep Routine

Poor sleep throughout the holiday season can leave you feeling unwell. Whether you're having a hard time making it through your day, or you're starting to get ill because of it, you need to rest. It's best to stick to your sleep routine no matter how much you have going on. You're more likely to accomplish everything on your task list if you're well-rested and energized for the day. When you're feeling slow, sluggish, and sick, you won't be able to handle it all.

Try Online Shopping

Shopping in-store leads to a lot of anxiety and discomfort for some people. The longer it takes you to shop, the more tired and sore you'll be by the end of it. Rather than going in person, you can try online shopping and order from the comfort of your own home. If you have large boxes arrive, however, it's best to get someone else to help you carry them inside. Otherwise, don't forget the rule of lifting with your legs -- not bending or twisting your back.

Ask for Help

You don't have to handle all of the tasks yourself. When it comes to things like hanging the holiday lights, for example, you should ask for help. Get someone else in the family, a friend, or neighbor to help you get everything in place. This is especially wise if you're trying to install lights or decor high up and need a ladder. Someone should always be on the ground watching in case of a mishap. 

This chiropractic advice should stay on your mind throughout the holiday season and thereafter. It's always wise to maintain your health and well-being, no matter what is going on around you. Aches and pain can often be diminished simply by following a healthy routine and taking care of yourself.
