Make 2017 YOUR YEAR of Better Health! by Dr. Kelley Mulhern, Thrive! Chiropractic & Wellness, LLC
After the hustle-and-bustle of the highstress Holiday Season, many people reflect on their lives and their health. Did you meet your health goals in 2016, or are you still struggling to make your health a priority? People often set “resolutions” in January only to forget them by February. Better health takes consistent effort, but it doesn’t have to be hard. Let’s take a closer look at three areas you can work on to experience improved health in 2017: Physical health, mental/emotional health, and biochemical health. Physical health can be thought of as how we use – or don’t use – our bodies. Are you getting adequate and appropriate exercise? Do you have good posture? Are you sleeping soundly? Do you get your spine evaluated regularly? Many acute and chronic diseases are created or exacerbated by an improperly functioning nervous system. Do you
three aspects of health to reach their goals. We invite you to attend our free monthly “Wellness Wednesday” health talks – the 3rd Wednesday of the month at 6:15pm at our office. The January 18 talk is “Nutrition 101” and features certified Health & Nutrition Coach Vanessa Sardi of Nutriception ®.
obtain consistent body work (chiropractic, massage therapy, acupuncture, etc.?) Your body is your machine, and it requires care and maintenance of its structure for optimal health. Mental/emotional health refers to our ability to handle stress, express our emotions, and defuse worry, guilt, and anxiety. Do you love – and like – yourself? Do you practice relaxation techniques (such as meditation or prayer) daily? What does your self-talk sound like? Unchecked mental and emotional stress causes a cascade of events in your body, all of which can promote disease and dys-function. Biochemical health encompasses everything we put into – or onto – our bodies. Are you eating fresh, local, organic, and non-GMO foods? Are you drinking plenty of water, and is it filtered to remove impurities? What kind of cleaning supplies do you use in your
home and on your body? Are you taking appropriate supplements in the right quantity? There’s so much mis-information about nutrition that it’s easy to become confused. Don’t let continued confusion impact your health!
You have a choice. You can stay on the path where health is a low priority, and continue to be tired and run down. Or you can make 2017 the year you choose to commit to better health in three dimensions – your future self and loved ones will thank you!
Lots of people decide to diet or exercise in January, but that only involves one aspect of health. For lasting change, we must work on all three areas of health at the same time. If you don’t feel you have the will-power or knowledge to do so, partner with someone who does. Our office helps people address all
