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. 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.

  • 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.
