As a local Clearwater chiropractic clinic, we know just how debilitating stress can be on your overall health. From headaches to weight gain, to insomnia and more, letting stress run your life will not allow you to live the healthiest life you can. At Coastal Chiropractic, we are passionate about helping people feel better and live their life with less pain. We have put together a few simple ways to cut down on the stress in your life so you can feel your very best.
While stressors can be avoided, simply cutting down on your extra responsibilities, things like daily chores, work and childcare, are often unavoidable. When you feel like it is all becoming too much, follow these simple steps:
- Take a breath. Take a moment to do a simple deep breathing exercise, focusing only on the air coming into your body and the air leaving. Just doing this for 30 seconds to one minute can make you feel immeasurably better.
- Keep moving. At our Clearwater chiropractic clinic, we recommend that our patients take the time to move for at least five minutes each hour. No matter if you take a walk around the block with the dog, make a loop around the office, or do some jumping jacks while the kids are napping, you will feel better. Exercise is not only a simple way to stay healthy, but it releases endorphins to keep you happy and calmer.
- Schedule some “you time.” It can be a weekly yoga class in downtown Clearwater or it can just be 15 minutes each night to catch up on your reading. Whatever it is, choose an activity that will allow you to relax and unwind.
- Visit your chiropractic clinic. Too much stress leads to uncomfortable muscle tension and even subluxations in your spine. Take the time to visit your chiropractor to ensure that your stress isn’t causing you daily pain.
