Tackling the Stress of Moving With Chiropractic Care
By Donna Stark
There is no other time during the year that causes people to stress as much as the holiday season does. Overbooked schedules, extended family in town, and shopping for those perfect gifts are enough to make anyone pull their hair out! So you can imagine what would happen if an additional stressor is added to this already high-stress season. Actually, if one of the biggest stressors in life is added to this season, and no, I am not talking about taking your annual family pictures. I'm talking about moving, and honestly, could there be a worse time to do that? Probably not, but if you are already in the midst of it all, don't worry! Your local chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic want you to know that they have your back!
