As we head full force into St. Patrick's Day weekend it's important to remember what a hard night of drinking alcohol can do to the mind and the body -- and that's not taking into consideration any possible injury you can sustain while being under the influence of alcohol, that's just from a nutritional standpoint.
That's why Barton Chiropractic Clinic thought it would be a good idea to go over a few things you can do which will enrich your overall health.
1.) Drink St. Patrick's Day-Themed Veggie/Fruit Smoothies
Blend up some fresh kale, pear, turmeric root, ginger root, blueberries, and a few cloves of garlic. The end result: somewhat of a green concoction that is a heck of a lot more healthy for you than any ale or lager.
2.) Take a Hike and Avoid the Crowds
Instead of engaging in a day of drinking at the local pub, go on a nature hike and get around the type of green that is good for your mind, body, and soul!
3.) Take a Boxing Class
There have been more than a few famous Irish boxers -- and even an MMA fighter named Connor McGregor -- who have summoned the strength of their countrymen to achieve victory. Get in touch with your own fighting Irish spirit and take a safe and instructed boxing class to up your cardio and your fight IQ.
If you end up sore after St. Patty's Day -- either from a day of drinking or from being active -- schedule an adjustment with Barton Chiropractic Clinic. We have a long history of keeping our patients healthy, active, and well.
