If you are ready to change your life, don’t expect everything to be different overnight. Change takes time. That’s why Lakewoods Chiropractic offers a “Jump Start” wellness plan to help people make small but meaningful changes in their daily lives in order to become healthier and feel better.
Achieving wellness is an ongoing process. You can make adjustments in the next 10 weeks or so that will jump start you on the road to feeling better rather than bitter about life.
What are some things a wellness plan includes? For starters, chiropractic care helps get the body back into alignment. So many people are experiencing problems these days, from bad backs to headaches and then some. Chiropractic care uses gentle maneuvers called adjustments to correct and prevent “vertebral subluxations.” In other words, chiropractic care helps take away nerve interference so pain is lessened and movement is improved!
What about stress? A wellness plan involves identifying what is stressing you out and then finding ways to cope with and lessen stress. For many people, they’re dealing with a daily schedule that’s just too hectic. They need to slow down! They need to delegate some chores to others. And they need to learn to say “no” to some requests. A good chiropractor can teach you stress reduction techniques.
How about drugs and pills? Most people are on some kind of pill for something. Not all, though, are beneficial. A chiropractor can help you take a look at what you’re taking and how some of those things could be giving you negative side effects.
What about nutrition? Are you getting enough vitamins and minerals with the foods you currently eat? Are you consuming too much soda pop and pizza? A chiropractor can help guide you in eating healthier, which can, in turn, help you reduce weight, which means less stress on your joints. For instance, what about trading M&M’s for blueberries? Have you ever tried that?
Sleep is so important to a person’s overall health and well-being, yet too many people aren’t getting enough quality, restorative sleep. A chiropractor who is helping you jump start your wellness plan can help you figure out whether or not you’re getting adequate sleep…
Then there’s exercise– which some people dread. Yet exercise is so vital! That said, what if you had someone helping you come up with a customized plan that fits your needs– and it’s stuff you actually enjoy? There’s truly an exercise or two out there for everyone. Maybe it’s time to take an Aqua Zumba class! Or maybe it’s time to ask your friend to go with you to the gym, for fun and accountability.
Other things than can be part of a wellness plan include more time spent in nature, figuring out your household budget so it doesn’t stress you out so much, getting rid of clutter from your home, talking about spirituality and one’s attitude toward life, and then some.
