Boost Your Health by Getting Back to the Basics

eat better feel good boardWhile the Internet is a useful tool of course when it comes to connecting us with valuable information, it also links us to an overwhelming amount of material on “magic bullet” ways or hacks to lose weight and get in shape. The sheer number of search results for diets and fast workouts is dizzying.

We recommend that you do a self-assessment to see what you’re already doing or not doing. For example, are you short-changing your sleep or not eating enough whole foods? Or maybe you haven’t made exercise a priority. The good news is you can start implementing small healthy lifestyle habits now that can reap big rewards later.

Move More

Aim for 30 minutes of exercise at least five days a week. There are easy ways to fit fitness into your busy workday. Take the stairs versus the elevator or walk in place (or even dance!) at a standing desk. Taking your dog for a brisk walk before and after work also can help you meet your workout goals.

Eat a Variety of Whole Foods

Choosing vibrant fruits and vegetables from across the rainbow can go a long way toward helping you enjoy better health. Avoid processed foods which contain preservatives and shop the perimeter of the grocery store.

Aim to Get More Sleep

Are you getting enough shuteye or do you wake up feeling unrefreshed? Your body heals when you sleep, so it’s critical that you aim to get 7-8 hours a night. Power down all electronics at least an hour before you turn in and adopt some good sleep-fostering habits.

Align Your Spine With Chiropractic

Be sure to get adjusted, so your body is in the right alignment and your nervous system is functioning at its peak. Another remarkable benefit of chiropractic is that it boosts the immune system so you can stay healthy.

If it’s been a while since your last adjustment, contact us today. We look forward to helping you achieve and maintain great spinal and optimal overall health!
