Top Health and Wellness Gift Ideas

Some of us like to choose gift ideas that are out of the ordinary or that serve a larger purpose, such as giving the giftee something that they will value and use. Below, Espinosa Family Chiropractic goes over some holiday gift ideas that will promote health and wellness, which remain excellent gift options in lieu of smart devices and gift cards.

Gym Membership

Give the gift of a gym membership or a yoga class membership. Whether you opt for one month or an entire year is up to you. A gym membership is a gift idea that could spark serious change in whoever you give it to.

Chiropractic Treatment

Chiropractic treatment is an excellent gift idea — our adjustments and treatments and Espinosa Family Chiropractic provide drug-free pain relief, improve circulation and cognitive function, not to mention promote a healthy GI system and immune system among many other health and wellness benefits.

Muscle Roller

A muscle roller is a great gift idea that will help whoever you give it to relieve muscle tension after a tough workout. It’s a great compliment to chiropractic treatment!

Making Better New Year’s Resolutions

Making goals or resolutions at the beginning of the new year is something many of us take part in. However, whether we plan on following through with those objectives we set out for ourselves in January is an entirely different story. One way to set yourself up to better achieve your goals is to set goals effectively and realistically. Below, Espinosa Family Chiropractic goes over a few ways to make better New Year’s resolutions.

Be Specific

Instead of telling yourself vaguely to “get in shape,” set a specific goal for yourself, such as running a marathon, which will inherently force you to get into shape in preparation for the event. You’ll train leading up to the event then feel an amazing sense of accomplishment after you finish what you set out to do.

Be Multidimensional

Don’t simply focus on fitness goals, create goals that touch every facet of yourself. Have and keep better relationships, eat better food, practice a martial art, or take up crocheting. Try to have your goals assist you in becoming a better and more interesting person!

Tell Someone Else About Your Goals

It might seem tempting to keep your goals that you set to yourself, and it’s a good way to cop out of things if you get too uncomfortable. The stronger move is to tell someone else about your intentions for the year, that way you’re held accountable.

Espinosa Family Chiropractic provides treatments that help you get the best out of you. Contact us today to learn more about who we are and what we do.

Staying Motivated Toward the End of the Year

As December rolls through to the end of the year, this might be a challenging time for some to stay on top of their wellness routine. With the holiday season in full effect, the new year’s resolutions we made at the beginning of the year might seem like they’re miles away.

However, December presents an opportunity to finish the year strong!

One way to stay on top of your health and wellness goals is to keep the routine that you set out for yourself at the beginning of the year — even if you haven’t been great about keeping it leading into this month. Falling back on your wellness routine now will end the year with a statement while setting you up for success leading into the next year.

Carefully assess where you’re at now versus where you were at during the early months of the year. You might surprise yourself at how far you’ve come.

Make miniature goals that can be executed during the month of December, which will help you ensure a productive final month of the year. Espinosa Family Chiropractic is here to make sure you finish the year the way you intended when you made your resolutions.

Holiday Season Recovery Tips

Since Black Friday has just passed and with the big holidays of the year still upon us, it’s a great idea to check in with your health and wellness as you make the final push toward the new year.

Many of us have fitness goals that we set out for ourselves at the beginning of the year, and getting a chiropractic treatment will help prime your body and brain to achieve your goals. Some of our goals have to do with helping others, and, during the holiday season, we may have goals tied up in getting that all-important gift for a special loved one. We might work more hours and put ourselves through grueling schedules in order to afford our gifts.

As such, it’s important to practice self-care during these festive and sometimes stressful times.

Below, Espinosa Family Chiropractic goes over a few holiday season recovery tips.

1.) Take Care of Your Body

Taking a yoga class or springing for a massage session will do well for muscle tension, not to mention help alleviate any stress you’re feeling. When we take care of our bodies we get rewarded in numerous ways.

2.) Cut Alcohol Consumption

It’s the time of year for annual work parties and family gatherings where adult beverages might be consumed. In such cases, try to limit your own alcohol consumption to ensure a good night’s rest.

3.) Get Your Sleep

Getting 7-9 hours of sleep each day is crucial for the body and brain to regenerate. Prolonged sleep deprivation has been linked to all sorts of health conditions. Getting your requisite sleep each night will help you set yourself up for success the following day.

Chiropractic treatments at Espinosa Family Chiropractic are another great way to practice smart recovery during the holiday season. Contact us today to schedule your consultation.
