Are too many sweets, too few visits to the gym and too many sick days reminders that it might be time to stock your wellness arsenal for the New Year? Getting on the path to better health doesn’t have to be painful. It just starts with simple, yet smart, steps.
Is your diet dirty? The New Year is an ideal time to clean it up. How?
Whether you enjoy swimming, cycling, running, or simply walking, getting regular exercise not only fires up feel-good endorphins but can help you stay well and possibly live longer. To stick with exercise, choose an activity that you love. If it’s hard to stay motivated, consider working out with a friend, spouse or significant other. When you have accountability, you’re less likely to ditch your workout plans.
If you find yourself longing for a caffeine IV drip because of insufficient sleep, it’s a good idea to evaluate why you may be lacking restorative rest. Keeping the temperature in your home at a relatively cool setting may help your sleep improve. Also, try to restrict caffeine consumption to the morning hours as drinking caffeinated beverages too late in the day can keep you wide awake.
Avoid electronics time as the artificial light from these gadgets can make it hard for your mind to shut down for the night. Keeping a sleep routine such as getting to bed at the same time may help as well.
Remember, your greatest wealth is your health. Add regular chiropractic visits to your schedule for a natural way to boost your immune system so you can stay well and optimize your health.
The Blair Upper Cervical Chiropractic Technique is a specific system of analyzing and adjusting the upper cervical vertebrae of the spinal column. These vertebrae can misalign in such a way as to interfere with the brainstem and spinal cord as they exit through the floor of the skull into the neural canal.
