  • Chronic or elevated stress not only burns us out, but it can kill.

    Here are 5 proven ways you can better handle the stress in your life.

    1. BREATHE, STOP, (and SHAKE ): According to Harvard Medical School, just a few, easy deep breaths, from your abdomen will reset your system and shift you towards relaxation.
    2. GET CURIOUS : Your brain does not work well when under stress; however curiosity hacks the stress response, shifting your thoughts from rumination and worry into creative reflection.
    3. HUG IT OUT: Hugging a loved one releases the hormone, oxytocin which can induce anti-stress-like effects such as reduction of blood pressure, repair of muscles, brain tissue and neurons.
    4. GET INTO YOUR BODY: By getting to know your own body’s sensations, you will be able to anticipate changes in your emotional state which will allow you to better handle moments of stress.
    5. FEEL THE LOVE. Studies support that feelings of love and connection reduce stress hormones.

    Small amounts of stress are a part of life; however we don’t have to let it dominate our lives or steal our health. By finding positive, healthy ways to manage your stress and recover from it, you can avoid the negative health risks associated with stress!

    One of these positive ways is chiropractic care which has been found to neutralize stress and normalize brain function! Get regular chiropractic checkups for the whole family, and make sure your brain and your body are working the best they can. You and your families health and life will be better because of it!

    Stay tuned for more, we will have weekly “Brain Based Wellness News” posts for you to develop the best life and health you possibly can!

    Holiday Health Tips

    1. Start Strength Training NOW!

      1. Building a solid foundation of muscle will help your metabolic rate stay higher
        during the holiday season. Muscle burns more than fat! Mentally, you’ll know
        you’ve been working hard all month, and It may keep you in check!
    2. Limit your indulgence to one or two days of the Holiday

      1. Keeping your holiday indulgence to the ‘eve’ and the actual day-of, will help
        you not over do it. Try to keep in mind the 90% healthy 10% less healthy rule.
        If you eat 3 meals per day 7 days per week, you eat 21 meals a week. Being
        generous, this rule gives you 3 meals per week to indulge, enjoy, and not feel
        guilty about. This extends past the holidays into your daily life too!
    3. Eat healthy, well-rounded meals in between.

      1. Thanksgiving morning, eat a healthy breakfast. The apps will likely start flowing
        around 2 or 3, and knowing you have eaten a healthy balanced breakfast will
        bring you into the party a lot less hungry, and help keep you from over eating.
        Between holidays, always commit to healthy balanced meals. Don’t snowball
        the holiday eating!
    4. Make sure you get some exercise!

      1. Holidays and long weekends are a fun time to relax, but getting outside,
        especially this time of year, can be a good for your body & mind as we adjust
        to winter hours and weather. It’s a great group activity for family & kids also!
        Bundle up, and take the crew for an outside walk around the neighborhood or
        some nature trails if you have them, get a game of football or frisbee going.
        Take time to PLAY! It doesn’t have to be anything crazy, you don’t have to be
        drained, just move that body. It’ll help you offset extra calories & keep digestion
        stimulated to help avoid any constipation.
    5. Be Mindful!

      1. Mindlessness is often how over-eating happens. At home, it’s with things like
        the TV on or computer in front of you. On holidays, there is so much
        stimulation overload coming from friends, kids, dogs, games, etc. When you
        choose to eat, choose to eat. Try not to multitask. Smaller portions will help
        you get back to the fun quicker minimizing FOMO (fear of missing out). (WIN/WIN)
    6. Just a *taste*

      1. When it comes to appetizers, Thanksgiving dinner, etc… we often LOAD up
        our plates trying to get a serving of each delicious plate. If you eat healthy 90%
        of the time, especially throughout the holidays, a little indulgence is totally fine,
        and in my opinion welcome, but portions will be a huge factor here. Especially
        rich/fatty/sugary foods (i.e. potatoes au gratin, or my aunt’s famous cheesy
        bread dip) limit your consumption to a bite or two. Enough to experience the
        flavors, but not enough to make you bloated and full mid party!
    7. Drink a glass of water for every drink you have.

      1. The oldest trick in the book! You’ll have that many less beers, glass of wine, or
        cocktails which means less sugar, less calories, and less of a hangover
        tomorrow. You may also avoid that late night urge to go eat the food that’s
        been sitting out for 5-6 hours.
    8. Do NOT beat yourself up over your holiday indulgence.

      1. One bad meal doesn’t make you fat, just like one salad doesn’t make you
        skinny. Always look forward to your next meal, never regretting the last… and
        on days there aren’t gatherings, parties, and endless appetizers, commit to
        eating those healthy balanced meals.
