Whether you believe in starting the new year fresh or are simply ready to make a change, the upcoming holiday is the perfect opportunity to start focusing on your overall and chiropractic health. North Pole Chiropractic in Alaska is a family care practice ready to help. They think 2018 should be all about pain relief and feeling an overall sense of well-being. Here are their top tips to help you make the new year your best one yet.
How to Incorporate Chiropractic Health & Exercise Into Your New Year’s Resolution
1. Keep It Simple
Even with the best intentions, you won’t make it far into the new year if your plan is too complicated and ambitious. You need to start slow and strive for a gradual change. Instead of vowing to run several miles every day, commit to being active for at least 30 minutes before breakfast. Jumping too far and too fast before you’re ready will only lead to disappointment.
2. Mark Appointments on Your Calendar
A regularly scheduled appointment with a chiropractor will keep your body aligned and ready for exercise. It’s all too easy, however, to cancel those appointments when you don’t feel like leaving the house. You’ll never regret attending the appointment afterward, but getting in the car is the hardest part of keeping your commitment. Write every appointment on your regular calendar in permanent writing. Tell yourself there’s no such thing as cross-outs.
3. Keep a Journal
The best motivation for keeping up with chiropractic health is seeing and feeling the effects of regular exercise and massage. Change never happens overnight, but it does happen. Help yourself see the difference by writing in a journal every day. Take note of the exercises you do and how you felt doing them. Mark days when you have a chiropractic appointment and make honest notations about back pain improvement and decline.
Your health is important, and there’s no better way to celebrate another successful year than by treating your body with much-needed care. Your chiropractic health stands between you and the life you’ve always wanted to live. Start feeling strong and healthy by scheduling your first appointment of the new year with North Pole Chiropractic. Call them at (907) 488-1885 or visit their website for more information.
