We know it's Fall season and the weather is getting a little more chill. Seasons change and we tend to hibernate, or at the very least hunker down a little more, eating comfort food, and maybe binge-watching a few too many meaningless TV shows.
During the Fall season, there are a few rampant bad habits that Barton Chiropractic Clinic would like to raise awareness about. If you can avoid these bad fall habits, you'll likely have a more productive season and feel healthier through it all.
1.) Ditch PSL Lattes
We know that pumpkin spice is life during the Fall season, so maybe it's a good idea to have one huge PSL latte at the beginning of fall, then pretty much write them off. Drinking sugary coffees in the morning loaded with high-fructose corn syrup is a horrible way to start the day. Cut out all processed sugars this Fall season for a boosted immune system and other health benefits.
2.) Have Active Recovery Days
Instead of sitting in front of the TV with a big bowl of mac and cheese every weekend, make it a point to get outdoors, whether you go on a nature hike or a simple neighborhood stroll. Take a yoga class, meditate, and get a full body massage. Find creative ways to be productive while giving your body the space it needs to recharge itself.
We know Fall season means winter (and the end of the year) are right around the corner. Many of us attempt to force a ton of things into the last quarter of our year, grasping for straws as a way to close out the year productively.
Instead, try to set one simple work goal that will carry you through the year and work diligently at that. When the new year starts, create a new simple goal that will carry you through the next quarter.
As Fall season commences, it's natural that old aches and pains might start to show up. Give us a call at Barton Chiropractic Clinic today to learn more about how our treatments can get the best out of you.
