Creating a foundation of health is increasingly more important as we age.

Foundation of Health

 

Unfortunately, as we get older, there will be more aliments creeping in. Consequently it is that much more important to focus on a solid foundation of health.

 

Ergonomics and Exercise

 

These are two sides of the same coin. When you exercise more you’re going to get stronger. But having ergonomics in place means you are able to focus on your posture. In turn, you will  minimize injury, especially lower back issues. Lower back pain is one of the most common types of pain. While many chiropractic care services can help with lower back pain, prevention is always the better answer. We will see a difference if we address our ergonomic setup.

Sleep and Stress

 

When we don’t sleep properly we feel stress more acutely. Consider how rested you feel when you wake. Ask yourself:

  1. Do I fall asleep easily?
  2. Do I sleep through the night?
  3. When I wake up, do I feel rested?
  4. Do I need an alarm to wake up?
  5. Am I tired throughout the day?

Getting a proper amount of sleep is essential for optimal health, performance, and resiliency! Our sleep is essential. Therefore, determining how much sleep you need every night is also essential.

There are many techniques that we can use to calm ourselves down and prepare ourselves for a good night’s sleep. Supplements such as magnesium or melatonin may be just the thing that you need to help you sleep. A  boost of some good solid protein, such as from turkey or eggs, will help you to increase levels of tryptophan in your body. In turn, this may help you to sleep.

However, if you are one of those people that wakes up a lot, it could be due to external stresses. Additionally, taking a look at your Sleep Hygiene may be needed.

Breathing and Connections

 

We take breathing for granted. We think we know how to breathe because we are alive. 

Therefore it is underestimated as an important focus. However, if we do not breathe properly we are not able to flood our organs with nutrient-dense oxygen.

When you have control over your breathing, you are going to have control over your stress levels. Consequently, you are going to have better control over your life.

To feel more connected to your life, think about breathing in better ways. This is doubly important if you are asthmatic or live in a polluted area. Find the right thing that works for you, and you will feel the difference instantly. 

These areas are crucial to your health, but it’s not just about making sure that you have the right things in place. It is about making sure that you check in with yourself to ensure that you are giving yourself the right things.
