Today is the day to truly take care of YOU!
Self care is critical for your health, well being and quality of life. Each of us are given one body and one mind for the course of our life – it makes sense to take care of it!
Taking care of yourself and your kids today pays off both today and in the future. It is an investment in yourself and I believe that that is the best kind!
Self Care = Healthcare
The inspiration for this week’s topic and title comes from a comment someone left on a recent Facebook post of mine. So, thank you to everyone who inspires me!!
What is self care? Self care includes all of the good things you do to promote your own health and wellbeing. It might include walking, Chiropractic, pilates, massage, eating well, organic facials, meditation, counseling, pedicures, date nights, pool days etc…
Taking care of yourself might look a little different for each person and for each family, however it is integral that you carve time out of your busy schedule to allow for this.
Self care allows for increased quality of life. Wouldn’t you like to be happier, healthier, and more productive?
Chiropractic is an integral part of your healthy lifestyle and has been shown in research to improve quality of life. Proper posture has been shown to increase both quality and quantity of life. These statements are true for both adults and children alike! Chiropractic has also been shown to help decrease anxiety, depression and stress once again contributing to a higher quality of life!
Proper movement of your spine - along with improved breath and connection to your body - allows you to heal. Movement is critical in regaining and improving your health and well being. As your spine begins to move, your body will learn how to adapt easier to your ever changing life and external environment.
Your spine protects the spinal cord, which is your lifeline. Your brain and spinal cord work together to control every muscle, organ and tissue in your body. This makes your spine very important, as it is the guardian of your spinal cord. As a Chiropractor my role is to help you have a happy spine, nervous system and an overall healthy life!
Your body is designed to BE WELL and to adapt to the environment with ease and grace. The Chiropractic Adjustment is designed to maintain proper alignment and motion within your spine as well as to help your body develop improved strategies to achieve health.
If you've not started Chiropractic Care yet, I encourage you to do so. And, if you have, I look forward to seeing you at your next Adjustment!
Under care you and your child will be healthier! When your spine is aligned and your nervous system is functioning properly you have greater potential to create health! I invite you to come and discover how Chiropractic may be able to help you and your family be healthy.
