New Year, Healthier You If you were to reflect on 2014, would you be pleased with how you took care of yourself this year? Do you think that you could have done a better job and plan to do a better job this upcoming year? In December 2015, I want you to be able to say you're pleased with how you took care of yourself. You can know you did a great job! Here are five things I find to be extremely important to help you reach your level of optimal health. 1. Drink more water. During the cold weather, it is so easy to not get enough fluids. Drinking plenty of water helps keep your skin looking good, can help control calories, and you're 60% water, so it is important to maintain the balance of body fluids. 2. Eat more vegetables. Eating a rich diet of vegetables may reduce the risk for heart disease, including heart attack and stroke and may even protect against certain types of cancers. 3. Think positive and focus on gratitude. Research shows a healthy positive attitude helps build a healthier immune system and boosts overall health. Your body believes what you think, so focus on the positive. 4. Exercise regularly. It is so hard to fit another activ- ity into our chaotic daily schedules, but exercising is a must! Exercise promotes better sleep, controls weight, improves mood, boosts energy, can combat health con- ditions and disease and can do so many more great things for you. It is important to look at your schedule and figure out a way to incorporate exercise into your life. 5. Get adjusted! Chiropractic triggers your body's ability to heal by working with the nervous system. As a chiropractor, I recognize that there are several factors that affect your health such as exercise, nutrition, sleep, environment and heredity. Chiropractic focuses on maintaining your health naturally to help your body resist disease. Please feel free to email me and receive my monthly newsletters regarding nutrition.
