Make Your Health a Priority

How did you do with your challenge from the last blog post?  Did you Make Your Health a Priority?

1.  Set aside some time (could be just a few minutes or a lot longer) to be quiet.  Turn off your screen, notifications, music, etc.  I find morning is the best time to make your health a priority.
2.  Take a notebook or piece of paper and a pen with you.  As thoughts come into your mind, jot them down and free your mind from those thoughts.  Afterwards, prioritize those thoughts.  Which ones need action now and which ones can wait?
Last week we talked about how to be quiet, even just a little bit, to give yourself better clarity and margin in your mind.  What else can you do to make your health a priority?

1.  Take Responsibility for Your Health

How do you talk about your health?  Do you acknowledge that the choices you’ve made, and continue to make impact your health or do you blame bad germs, bad genes or bad luck?  Your level of health is built like your personal character.  It’s not created by the big, infrequent choices you make, but by your small, daily commitments and behaviours.

2.  Do the Important Things First

What’s your morning routine?  Do you wake up earlier than you have to so that you can begin your day with some quiet/prayer/meditation time or reading?  No one is going to hold your hand to make sure you get to bed on time.  Challenge yourself to get there just a few minutes earlier so you can wake up a few minutes earlier.

3.  Make Commitments BEFORE Opportunities are Presented

Think about holiday meals and parties (which will be different this year).  Showing up and trying to resist holiday goodies is difficult.  Committing to moving your body in some way on your day off might be tough too.  You can do hard things…if you want to.  Commit BEFORE an event, that you’re going to have only one cookie or treat.  Commit to moving yourself daily regardless of the weather.  Tell someone else what you’ve committed to and ask them to check in with you.  You’ll notice you’re better at committing to others compared to making a commitment to yourself.

  • 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 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.

  • 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 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 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.
