Do you face challenges, demands and stress in your daily life? Do children have challenges and demands in their daily life?

Problems or stress can be a part of all ages and all stages of living. As long as stress is a part of your daily routine, you have the opportunity to benefit from starting chiropractic to better adapt to it. 

So when is the best time to start chiropractic? The best time to start chiropractic is when stress outweighs the body’s innate ability to adapt to it. 

When stress outweighs our body’s innate ability to adapt, it creates an environment for vertebral subluxation to develop. Many forms of stress can lead to a vertebral subluxation. Some of the more common stressors include: Physical stress from slips, falls, or poor posture. Chemical stress from poor diet or lack of good water. Emotional stress from how we respond and think about things that happen in life. 

Stress can rob all of us from reaching our true potential, unless we do something about it. Stress can lower our quality of life, or, can allow us to get stronger by finding ways to adapt to it.

Every decision we make relies on the philosophy of moving towards what’s good or moving away from what’s bad. In other words, will this bring more positive opportunity for me or will this bring less negative consequences? Utilizing this driving force behind decisions you make may give you a boost towards completing the list of priorities for a higher quality of life.

The art of living is full of seasons – ups and downs, pains and aches, good days and bad. Keeping in mind that life is never still and the next day may be full of unexpected set backs can allow you to focus on being cautious of stress.

When times are tough, you have two options: find a way to make them better, or do nothing. I recommend using your will power to find a way to make quality of life better. 

Where there’s a will, there’s a way. I would not recommend walking away from the winter season in search of summer. Summer will come, but it comes after the spring. If you walk way from the tough times, you may be haunted later in life with regret. Regret is no walk in the park on a hot summer day. 

As you weather the winter seasons in life, become disciplined enough to manage the most important tasks for your quality of life. Use good, better, best judgment with your resources.  Always be cautious of the most minor details that may affect your wellbeing. Become wise with your ways. 

One way to become more willful in making your quality of life better by being more cautious of stress is through better adaptation to it. Being cautious means you use good judgment and are careful in practical ways. Don’t ever underestimate the most (seemingly) insignificant decisions that you need to make, it’s the little things that make us whole. Better adaptation to stress can occur when you start benefiting from chiropractic.

Starting chiropractic when stress outweighs the body’s innate ability to adapt to it creates an environment for less severe vertebral subluxation to develop. Since many forms of stress can lead to a vertebral subluxation such as physical stress, chemical stress and emotional stress-its in your best interest to consult with a chiropractor on when and how often to benefit from chiropractic adjustments for the location, analysis and facilitation of correction of vertebral subluxation.

Start making positive decisions for your quality of life can include regular chiropractic care due to everyday challenges, demands and stress. Choosing to do what’s necessary now for more positive results later can be referred to as a “proactive choice.” Here are 5 proactive choices to invest in your wellbeing:

    1. Sleep: Early to bed, early to rise, a good night’s rest for recovery and healing.
    2. Nutrition: Fuel your body with real food, vitamins and nutrients.
    3. Movement: Take time to play, participate in sports, and move your body.
    4. Attitude: Think thoughts that produce positive action towards wellbeing.
    5. Adaptability: Find ways to overcome or strengthen your resistance to stress. Chiropractic adjustments can make a positive influence on your quality of life, for example, improving overall health, digestion, immunity and wellbeing.  

Take these 5 proactive choices for a better you including starting chiropractic and put them on your calendar and hit repeat. Look twenty years down the road from now and see your future self thanking you for investing into yourself and your loved ones.
