Show Your Body Some Love this Holiday Season
‘Tis the season…for stress!
While thinking of others as the holiday’s approach might be your top priority, it’s also important to consider your own physical and mental health. Here are a few ways to manage stress brought on by the holidays.
- Exercise. Sometimes, the holiday season can throw us off of our usual schedule. Do your best to maintain your regular fitness routine.
- Watch what you’re eating. While most of us love holiday food, it’s important that we don’t over-indulge. Choose options high in Vitamin C to keep your immune system thriving.
- Take a breather. There’s nothing wrong with taking a “time out” from a gathering when you need it.
- Visit our practice. Having an adjustment can keep physical and mental exhaustion at bay.
Is Time Slipping Away From You?
Do you go to work every day and come home feeling like you’ve gotten nothing accomplished? Time management might not be one of your strong suits! However, it’s a critical business skill to learn – especially in the fast-paced world in which we live and work today. Did you know that physical complaints such as headaches and reoccurring illness can be caused by the accumulation of stress?
Here are a few tips to help you “pull it together” and get more done on the job:
- Decide to check your email at set times instead of every five minutes.
- Organize tomorrow’s “to do” list before heading home from work to get it off of your mind.
- Break large projects into manageable tasks.
- Learn to say “no” when you need to.
Remember, physical, chemical or emotional stress is the underlying cause of tight muscles, spinal misalignments and nerve interference. Get adjusted!
