Health and Fitness Tips

live a long, healthy life one step at a time

This has been the longest of weeks.

As Covid fatigue met up with the election of 2020, few people were able to completely ignore the stress, anxiety, and fear that has plagued much of the nation at one point or another. You, however, made a decision to focus on what you can control. After nearly seven months of life interrupted, you have decided to get back into a regular routine and start working out. Just a few weeks before the Coronavirus completely disrupted your life, you were sidelined with a hip surgery. The recovery has gone well, but to say that you have been less than motivated to do anything more than the therapists demands would be an understatement.

This weekend, however, all of that changed. Your college roommate’s sone and his soon to be wife opened up a new chiropractic and functional medicine clinic just a few miles from your home. They convinced you to come in and try out the new muscle testing machine and to let them explain some of their rehab tools and systems to you. And once one of the doctor’s was finished showing you ways to help completely regain your physical strength and fitness, the other doctor was ready with a serious conversation about diet and metabolism.

As a whole, America is not the healthiest of nations. As a result it should come as no surprise that there are many people who have put themselves at risk with the Coronavirus because they are already overweight and do not get the amount of physical activity that is recommended. Fortunately, you can start today to make the changes you need to be your best and healthiest self. Planning a better menu of meals today than what you ate yesterday and committing to getting in more daily steps than you did last week can help you find a way to take control of your own life during these most challenging of times. Instead of sitting in your chair glued to the television and watching the number of cases and hospitalizations increase, you can turn off the news and go for a walk; instead of reading another online article to see just what the other side of the aisle is doing to threaten the election results that you want you can spend some time cutting and preparing fresh fruits and vegetables so you always have a healthy snack option.

Combine these initial efforts with a visit to a local chiropractor or physical therapist and you can use their muscle testing machine and other devices to determine a specific regimen for how you can increase the amount of fitness you get in your life. Even though it is fairly simple, the fact of the matter is that most Americans ignore the fact that engaging in even 10 minutes of physical activity every day can help improve mobility and longevity. And while it is true that worldwide more than 1.5 billion people suffer from chronic pain, there are ways for most people to find relief.

The news of ongoing political battles and increasing health concerns because of Covid 19 are stressful, but every individual has the power to make sure that they are doing their part to be healthier and happier. Escaping the round the clock news cycle that can be numbing at best and frightening at worst is not an easy task if you are an anxious person, but forcing yourself to get the activity that you need can make your mind and body more relaxed and productive.

You may not have a good friend who has a son who is opening and chiropractic and health clinic a few miles from your house offering an assessment on muscle testing machine, but that does not mean that you cannot find a way to to start making the small changes in your daily routine that can lead to significant improvements in your current health and your future quality of life. The countdown to the winter holidays has begun and there are surely going to be many changes in the traditions that you have enjoyed previously, but you can still focus on your health and happiness.
