The hardest part about a routine is getting started. Here are 3 steps you can take to be the catalyst of your chiropractic routine:
Step 1: Identify Your Day(s) of the Week to Visit Your Chiropractor.
We find that clients who create a consistent schedule of visiting us on the same day(s) of the week tend to be more consistent with their visits due to the habit that has been created. When you make a habit and stick to it, you can hold yourself accountable to checking it off your priority list.
For example, if you have a habit of exercising three times a week and you miss a day in your weekly routine, you’ll feel inclined to make up that visit, or know that you didn’t accomplish your goals for that week which will push you to get in your three visits the following week.
Step 2: Identify Your Goal(s) from Chiropractic Care
Create an inspiring goal to push you through the ups and downs of creating your chiropractic routine. Life will, likely, take you out of your routine and the good habits you’re trying to create. Find a motivation that will pull you back on track towards success.
If you need to pick up your kids from school on the day you typically visit your chiropractor one week, and the following week you go on vacation, you now have two weeks worth of motivating reasons to pull you back into the rhythm of consistent chiropractic care. One goal that clients may have when they start care is the ability to perform better in their day to day functions at work, like computer work for longer periods of time. When you realize that investing into your wellbeing is an investment into your job performance, your goal to thrive during the day, rather than merely survive, will power you back into your regular routine.
Step 3: Identify the Impact from Your Chiropractic Routine on Those Around You
Taking care of yourself to take care of your priorities can benefit not only yourself, but also those around you. When you are functioning better, you can serve those in your inner circle who you have close relationships with. Think of those closest to you to help inspire you towards the consistent habit of regular chiropractic care.
Chiropractic care can help restore proper relationship within the spinal joints which can enhance the innate recuperative power of the body to function in its normal state. When dysfunction is located within the spine due to vertebral subluxation, the communication can be less than optimal between brain and body, in turn, creating a lower quality of function. The integrity of your spinal joints can enhance the innate recuperative power of the body to heal itself due to the emphasis on the relationship between structure and function that is coordinated by the neurological system.
Identify your Day(s), Goal(s) and Impact to help you launch your chiropractic routine so you can live a higher quality of life!
