Your body is the most important thing you have in this world, and you only get one of them. For this reason alone, it is vitally important to make sure you do everything you can to maintain and care for it. One of the easiest ways to do this is to make sure your musculoskeletal system is in as good of shape as it can be. It becomes more and more important to maintain flexibility and muscle tone as we get older. If you can do this, then everything else will fall into place! Also, it is amazing what being in good physical shape can do for your mental state. Everything goes together.
Stretch, exercise and yoga
The first thing I recommend to anyone trying to improve themselves is incorporating a stretching regimen into their everyday life. It has to become a habit. Once it becomes a habit, it is easy. But it is a cumulative process, so one has to be consistent. Along with stretching every day, it is essential to get some physical activity/workout at least three times per week, preferably more. This goes hand in hand with stretching, as does our next component, yoga. Most people associate this with stretching, but it is so much more. A whole mind/body connection takes your health to another level. The first three components have been active, meaning you are putting in the work to get yourself healthy.
Massage therapy and chiropractic adjustments
In the spirit of taking care of yourself, it is vitally important to incorporate massage therapy into your self-care routine. An hour massage/deep tissue treatment every other week or so will go a long way in getting your body where it needs to be.
Lastly and most apparent, chiropractic adjustments will help restore your nervous system function and send you on the path to having overall health and wellness and being the best version of you that you can be!
Just remember, it is ok to be a little selfish sometimes; we have to take care of our own health and wellness first. However, incorporating these components of self-care into your daily routine will change your life for the better — physically and mentally.
