Maintaining an active, healthy lifestyle can provide you with a life rich in experiences and fulfillment. Whether you enjoy team sports, individual pursuits, or just like getting your 10,000 steps in every day, we’re here to support you. While not everyone is destined to be a pro athlete, staying active and living a high quality of life are goals we can all strive for. Even just a few small changes to your habits around your exercise routine thought processes, and nutrition could pay big dividends on your overall health and wellness.
Why it Matters:
Medical researchers worldwide agree on the health benefits of an active lifestyle, such as reducing your risk of heart disease, anxiety, and diabetes – but it doesn’t stop there. New research is published each year showing even more benefits of maintaining a healthy lifestyle by staying active, eating right, and keeping a positive mental attitude. We call this a balance of physical, chemical, and emotional stress. As nice as it may seem, no one can reduce all the stress in their life, but by understanding this delicate balance, you can start taking practical steps towards having a great life experience.
A steady balance (or homeostasis) is when your body can function at its optimal level.
Excessive or chronic physical, chemical, or emotional stress can reduce this delicate balance.
Chiropractic care has been shown to reduce stress in the neuromusculoskeletal system through a muscle spindle stretch response.
Information and education about how to live a healthy lifestyle are essential, but what counts is taking action. Just like learning how to do a push-up won’t make you more fit, understanding how to be healthier won’t make you more healthy until you start to create better health habits and work towards making healthier daily decisions.
