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

Yes, problems or stress are a part of all ages and 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.

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.

Where do you need to start making positive decisions for yourself and loved ones? 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.
