Deciding on topics to write about at a time like this, as a chiropractic care specialist, can be a challenge at times. But we here at Barton Chiropractic Clinic believe that times like these are crucial for spreading accurate and valuable information.
Right now, it might seem like the world has been experiencing turmoil after turmoil. Whether that's actually true or just our perceptions doesn't actually matter, because what really matters is how we handle these events that occur in the world.
Getting right with ourselves has to do with being healthy, making healthy choices, and finding a way to achieve some sort of inner peace and serenity, even when the world seems to be more than a little out of sorts around us.
Below, Barton Chiropractic gives 3 key mindfulness techniques that will help you stay mentally well during this time.
1.) Build Your Meditation Practice
Taking 10 minutes out of each day to meditate is extremely beneficial for mental health and wellness. It might seem difficult to get "down to nothing" -- as in thinking of nothing. Whenever you catch yourself in a familiar thought pattern, simply stop yourself without judgment and continue with your meditation. As you practice, you will get better at calming down the mind during this time and even throughout the rest of your day.
2.) Start Thinking of Others
Since you're with yourself 24/7, shouldn't you be given a break from that from time to time? Well, the only way to do that is to start investing in and thinking of others, perhaps even more than you think of yourself. By now, you should be kind of boring to yourself anyways, right? Watch your life begin to enrich, open up, and you'll also find that your mind is healthier when you're not indulging in selfishness.
3.) Consider Chiropractic Treatment
Chiropractic treatment might not seem like a path to mindfulness upon initial glance, but spinal adjustments can seriously improve mental cognition, helping your mind and body fire on all cylinders, which is sure to boost your mindfulness efforts at the same time.
