By Sandy Schroeder
As we surge through daily workloads, we may occasionally run into mental fog. If you have been there, you may be looking for ways to stay mentally sharp now and for the long haul.
The Joint Chiropractic clinic near you may have the answers that you need. Chiropractic treatment may provide far-reaching pain relief, and fresh mental alertness.
The spine encases the central nervous system that serves as command center for the body. When that brain-to-body communication work well, so do we.
How Your Chiropractor Helps
When you come in, your chiropractor will ask about your daily routine, aches and pains, and health history. A gentle targeted spinal adjustment may relieve aches and pains and trigger new alertness. Many patients say it’s like turning the page. There's more energy, awareness and focus.
As they assess their benefits, weekly 15-minute spinal adjustments may work to keep the alertness and pain-relief coming. At the same time, you may want to add more good health habits to keep your brain alert.
HarvardHealth suggests these steps to stay mentally sharp.
- Get 7 to 9 hours sleep a night
- Be physically active
- Don’t smoke
- Stay connected to friends and family
- Eat a healthy diet low in saturated and trans fats
- Only drink moderately
HarvardHealth also recommends considering these mental stimulations.
Never stop asking questions - People who are students of the world all of their lives often stay mentally young. Their curiosity motivates them to stay active mentally and physically as they work on pet projects throughout their lives.
Streamline everyday life - Organize and simplify the little things in your life so you don’t have to constantly look for lost keys or missing mail. Set up drop spots for everything and use them. Now you use all of that extra time for more reading, talking and listening.
Know who you are - As you move through the middle years, figure out how you learn best, and work on those paths to keep them sharp in the years ahead. Some people prefer to read. Others gain more information listening. Focus on what you do best creating little mental shortcuts that work for you.
