HEALTHY RESOLUTIONS: ACHIEVING YOUR BEST YEAR YET

Have you given up on making New Year’s resolutions? This is the year you can get back on track. The number one resolution in most of everyone’s mind is to lose weight. Losing weight can always be a challenge, looking for shortcuts and usually giving ourselves the lack of necessities needed for survival to do so. What if leading a complete healthier lifestyle could not only keep the weight off but help you build upon a better all-around future? Let’s discuss some of the things you can focus on to in 2018 to keep the future years’ resolutions from seeming unachievable.

SLEEP BETTER
Sleeping better has amazing benefits no matter how young or how healthy you may feel. Generally, the lack of sleep is a huge influence on other underlying health issues. Better sleep can:

  • Lower stress and anxiety
  • Decrease weight gain
  • Improve immunity functions
  • Improve your mood
  • Improve your appearance
  • Improve memory strength
  • Lower your risk of type 2 diabetes

CUT THE STRESS IN 2018
Chronic Stress can be a huge indicator from our body informing us that the current lifestyle isn’t the best. However, some of the daily stress we encounter can tend to be unavoidable. Reducing chronic stress can:

Lower your risk of heart disease
Reduce insomnia
Diminish depression
Moderate your weight management

STRENGTH TRAIN INSTEAD OF JUST LOSING WEIGHT
Focus on the journey, not just the destination. Becoming focused on how to create the path that will lead to actual weight loss in a healthy way will make the bumps in the road you may encounter a little more manageable. Strength training can help:

  • Manage weight loss
  • Increase bone density
  • Cope with chronic pain or conditions
  • Increase critical thinking and learning
  • Improve balance
  • Reduce risk of injury

IMPROVE POSTURE
Your mother used to warn you to straighten up, but without telling her she was right all of these years let’s focus on how good posture can help your daily routine. Improving posture can:

  • Promote airflow to the lungs
  • Increase productivity
  • Improve your energy
  • Reduce stress
  • Increase confidence
  • Help increase positive emotions
  • Increase muscle strength

HOW A SAN DIEGO CHIROPRACTOR CAN HELP
As you may have noticed, the resolutions we have suggested all tend to overlap each other. Typically, if you are going to have a resolution or intent of purpose, you are going to need to improve a little of each of these concentrations. A great chiropractor in San Diego is able to guide each patient with a correct plan and well maintenance exam in order to provide the individual care he or she may need. Most issues that are caused such as weight gain, lack of sleep, muscle weakness and even stress can be attributed to spine health.
