Becoming more aware of your body is a goal everyone should challenge themselves to.

Within all of our body’s resides an inner recuperate power or innate intelligence that allows the 70 trillion cells to function together as one operating body. Becoming more aware of this inner intelligence at work can be an intention that serves many purposes.

How often do we spend our days staying too busy to slow down and smell the roses? 

How about slowing down and becoming aware of the innate needs of your body?

The faster we move and the more we demand of ourselves, the more we need to slow down to ask ourselves what is it that our body needs right now to keep this pace. 

The challenge of being aware of your body during demanding days so you can make the intelligent choices for your wellbeing can be enhanced through investing into your overall wellbeing on a regular basis.

One way, but not the only way, of investing into wellbeing is regular chiropractic adjustments. 

Chiropractic adjustments focused on the facilitation of removing vertebral subluxation can influence your physiological ability to adapt to stress. Better adaption during demanding days allows you to keep your focus on the innate needs of your body. 

This doesn’t mean that you’ll be invincible, it suggests that a body free of neurological interference due to vertebral subluxation will work more efficiently. A body working more efficiently allows your educated brain to focus on the day and on your body. 

This concept is similar to a wifi connection that is free of interference — your computer will allow you to efficiently download and play a Netflix video to your device. If the wifi is being interfered with due to other devices streaming videos, you may loose proper playback to the video which can create more stress.

Here are 3 Recommendations to Increase your Innate Awareness of Your Innate Needs:

  1. Be Aware of Your Breathing.

When life is pulling you out of rhythm and chaos is in control, slow down the distracting thoughts and stress by being aware of your breathing. Breathing has an innate rhythmic process that can put you back in touch with how your body is adapting or compensating to the demands of the day.

  1. Be Aware of Your Senses.

Your body has five senses: sight, hearing, smell, taste and touch. Being aware of natural beauty around you like sunsets, the sounds of the songs you like to listen to, the smell of coffee or essential oils being diffused, the taste of the food you’re consuming throughout the day and the everyday textures of what you’re touching will keep your awareness more alive!

  1. Be Aware of Your Environment.

Pay attention to where you are and what’s around you. How fast is life going? What is your body adapting to? Become aware of the ground you stand on, the air you’re breathing in and the people who surround you.
