You’re Building Health or You’re Not

Building Health

You’re building health or you’re not.You're building health or you're not

Every choice you make in your life either builds health, or it doesn’t.  Think about it:  Going to bed on time.  The people you hang out with.  The things you read and watch.  Your response to emotional stress in your life.  Foods you put in your mouth.  Making time for activities you enjoy.

You could look at health like an investment account.  You’ve probably heard the comparison before but it’s worth a quick review.  Neither your health account nor your investment account guarantee anything, but they will give you the best chance to recover when stresses arise.  The challenge is, they’re not a ‘front burner’ issues.  It is the wise who spend time, energy and focus investing not for today or tomorrow, but for months and years in the future.

When The Going Gets Tough

A great measure of your current focus and vision is your behaviour when things veer off course of what you expected would happen.  How do you behave when the going gets tough?  The last several months have been the test for all of us.  We’ve been bombarded with information, never-ending statistics, advice that changes daily and conflicting news reports.  Physical, emotional and mental health levels have been challenged like never before.  When you are squeezed, what comes out?  What I’ve been reminded of over these last few months is:

 You can control what you can control.

That sounds so obvious, but for a moment, take inventory of your thoughts over the last few months.  Has getting the latest update on social media, online or on TV caused you to make huge changes to your daily activities?  In mid to late March, I found myself wanting as much information as possible, as fast as possible.  By early April, I realized the information was just that, information.  Wisdom is having information and knowing what to do with it.

Continue to build your health by changing one of these habits this week:

1.  Floss your teeth EVERY day this week (along with brushing of course)
2.  Turn off your screen and go to bed 15 minutes earlier
3.  Sit quietly and write down every “to do” idea, then prioritize them
4.  Choose a show to watch where you’ll learn something
5.  Make a list before you go grocery shopping, stick to it and nothing else
6.  Commit to moving your body just a little more than yesterday
7.  Call/video chat with a friend, no agenda, no crisis, just to catch up

  • I have been suffering with neck and back pain and lack of mobility since my early teens and I am now 27, but I have progressively had a harder time coping with it since I started working in Healthcare in 2019. It had gotten to the point where all I could think about was finding a different job throughout my shift because I wasn't sure how much longer I could handle it. I decided to give Chiropractic Medicine a try and I am so thankful I did! I have been going to Ancaster Family Chiropractic since July 2021 and I have experienced a significant improvement with reduced severity and frequency of pain, better range of motion in my neck and back, and I rarely have to take OTC pain medication which is something I was relying on daily beforehand. I am not even halfway through my treatment plan and I can't wait to continue experiencing improvement in my quality of life. Thank you, Dr. Neil, Sue and Deb!

  • Dr. Neil and the staff Deb and Sue were very helpful with dealing with my issues. I went in with a lower back pain and has been healing pretty well. I have noticed the adjustments and home exercise not only helped with the pain but also helped with my digestion issues such as bloating. They were very accommodating whenever I needed a change in visits.Overall a great place to get yourself healed.

  • Their philosophy of health and well being is encouraging, optimistic and realistic. I appreciate the idea of leading a healthy lifestyle and preventing illness rather than simply treating the symptoms of ailments. Also, there are times unexpected benefits to chiropractic care. I wholeheartedly recommend Ancaster Family Chiropractic.
