As holidays like Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and the New Year come around, it might be a little more difficult for your child to stay engaged when it comes to school and building their foundation. However, there are simple measures you can take to ensure that your child is motivated and focused on what matters as we come to the close of the calendar year.

Below, Espinosa Family Chiropractic goes over a few ways to keep kids engaged when their focus may be dwindling.

Add Some Incentive

It might seem like an absurd idea to give your child incentive when Halloween and Christmas are around the corner, however, giving your child a goal to accomplish and rewarding such an accomplishment should be seen as an isolated thing. It's an effective tool to get a great push out of your child's productivity.

Stay on Top of Sleep

Lack of focus might even come down to a lack of sleep. Make sure that your child is getting 9 hours of sleep every night, no matter what.

Let Them Choose

If your child lacks motivation and inspiration, let them take up a new constructive hobby, like playing an instrument, or learning a new language. Let them choose what they engage in to ensure they stay motivated.

Chiropractic adjustments are also a great way to boost your child's cognition and mental focus. Contact Espinosa Family Chiropractic to learn more.

Even though it's only October, the new year will be here before you know it. This means that everyone is crafting their new year's resolutions, and when we make our new year's resolutions, it's hugely important to set realistic goals that still push you to new heights.

Below, Espinosa Family Chiropractic goes over a few ways to more intelligently and effectively set and achieve the goals you make in the coming year.

Start Something New

Instead of getting even better at something you're already good at, set a goal to get better at something that you're horrible at. It is a character-building experience to start out at something and be horrible at it, then slowly put in the work and effort to get good!

Stop Setting Aesthetic Goals

Instead of setting a goal to shed a specific amount of pounds or take X amount of inches off your waistline, set goals that are more geared toward feeling great. If you're feeling great, it's going to be hard not to look good, right?

Set Realistic and Unrealistic Goals

Instead of simply setting goals you know you're bound to achieve, set a few elusive goals that you won't likely be able to complete. It's important to always have room for improvement as each year comes to a close. 

Choosing a chiropractor in Sacramento, CA is serious business, and you should make sure that you choose the most knowledgeable candidate, someone who can serve the entire family and provide a comfortable atmosphere and experience in the process.

Below are a few things you should consider when choosing your chiropractic care specialist in Sacramento, CA.

Make Sure Your Chiropractor Operates Out of a Top-Notch Facility

Making sure your chiropractor works out of a great facility should weigh heavily on your choice for a chiropractic care specialist. Make sure the facility is up-to-date and that their tools and equipment are state-of-the-art. Make an initial appointment to take a tour if you have the time this is a great investment.

Good Reviews

It's important to take note of your chiropractor's reviews, but make sure to use your intuition. If all of the reviews sound the same and they're all perfect, this might be due to a business padding their reviews with PR firms. Instead, try to choose a chiropractor that has amazing reviews, and maybe a few that aren't so amazing. But make sure that your chosen chiropractor has handled adversity well. If they address problems previous patients have had in the past with poise and grace, you should give brownie points for this.

Amazing Staff

During your initial visit, make sure to take note of how the staff treats both you and the patients who visit while you're there. Again, go with your intuition. If you have a good feeling about the staff, the location, and the chiropractor, then we'd say that should be a green light!

For those of us who are fortunate enough to see our retirement years, new challenges may arise when it comes to what we do with our time now that we have so much more of it to spare. Whether it's taking on a new project, going back to school, or committing to running a half marathon, there are ways to stay active in retirement that will set you up for fulfilling later chapters in the story of your life.

Below, Espinosa Family Chiropractic goes over a few tips when it comes to staying active while being retired.

Initially, Say YES to Everything

When you're in your first days and weeks of retirement, try to inject yourself into other people's lives. Try to be of service where you can -- whether that means babysitting for your grandchildren, helping a neighbor with their yard work, or anything else that presents itself to you.

Set New Fitness Goals

It's true that you might not be able to do the things you used to do, but you can still stay up on your fitness in retirement. Take a yoga or Tai Chi class, for instance. Go on more nature hikes, or at the very least try to walk in the morning and evening. 

Start Filling Up Your Life Resume

If you're retired, chances are you've put a premium on your career and making sound financial choices. This might have required making sacrifices in other areas of your life, like traveling and chalking up new and adventurous experiences. Now is the time to travel to the places you've always wanted to go. Visit that coffee shop on the other side of town that you've passed for twenty years and never been inside.

Chiropractic treatments are a great way to maintain your body and wellness when you're young and more advanced in age alike. We help our patients stay in the game of life longer with traditional and innovative treatments that help you live a more fulfilling life.
