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 a patient with Dr Neil for about 2 years now and have definitely noticed an overall improvement in my well being and good health feeling since starting with the adjustments. I can also attribute a successful and remarkable quick recovery from 2 Total Knee Replacement surgeries to having good chiropractic care supporting good health healing! Dr. Neil is not only a caring friendly professional, he is also highly experienced and I wish to recommend him to anyone that needs a boost to daily health.

  • Dr Brown is efficient, empathetic and excellent at what he does, which is helping your body heal itself! The investment that he, and his supportive team of Deb and Sue, make towards your long term care plan is by far the most thorough and well thought out that I have ever experienced. I highly recommend their services for the whole family.

  • I have been a patient for about 9 years. My sons, since birth and they 7 and 4 now. I can't say enough about the Ancaster Family Chiropractic team. They are very friendly and accommodating and truly make you feel like part of their Chiropractic family. Our visits have helped keep our immune systems strong and help our bodies heal and stay healthy. Dr. Neil and his team are fantastic with my boys. They fondly call him Dr. Clickers. He is a big part of our health maintenance and we're grateful to have found him.

  • I promised a haiku to show my appreciation, so here it is!

    Dr. Neil is great
    I have never felt better
    Go see him today

    In all honesty, Dr. Neil has been a huge help getting rid of my headaches and chronic sickness - issues that no medication in the world could help. He’s a class act and treats his clients like a true professional. If you’re dealing with any sort of health issues, I would recommend booking an appointment with him.

    Thank you Dr. Neil and your team (Deb & Sue are fantastic!) for your commitment to my health and your welcoming environment. I look forward to my appointments!

  • I have been a proud client of Dr. Neil and the support team since 2016 and wouldn't think of going anywhere else. I tried other chiropracters previously and the experience at Ancaster Family Chiropractic is far superior than any other. The atmosphere is positive, friendly and professional. The set up is great and the organization/structure just makes sense. I love having a key fob...makes me feel important! They actually teach about chiropractic care for a greater understanding of same. The name is fitting as you feel like part of the family. Thanks for everything you do.
