Living longer is on the minds of many folks in this day and age, not to mention on the minds of many of the greatest scientists and leaders of the medical field. The truth is, it’s the stuff we do every day that is either helping us live a longer, healthier life, or driving us closer to illness or at the very least standing in the way of our potential.
Below are a few suggestions for our patients to live longer, healthier lives.
Exercise and Recover
Make sure that you get cardio and strength training without overloading your joints. Recover as intelligently as you work out (do yoga, engage in active recovery, etc.). Make sure you always get at least 7-9 hours of sleep. Anything less is bad for your health in numerous ways.
Work a Little Less
Many of us fall into the trap of defining ourselves by our vocation. It’s a very limited way of looking at things. Being overworked is no way to be, no matter which stage of life’s game you’re currently playing. Take time away to gain new perspective. Learn new skills in case you end up going in a new direction. Take the time to stay connected with your community.
Changing your diet is paramount in helping you live happier, healthier, and longer. Stay away from fast food, processed food, and sugary foods and beverages. Eat lots of veggies and take the supplements that you feel like work for you.
Chiropractic care is another way to maximize your health and has been shown to help with pain relief, injury rehabilitation, and in the treatment of a wide variety of health conditions. Contact Espinosa Family Chiropractic today to schedule your consultation in order to learn more.
