In today's grind culture it's easy to sacrifice our sleep in lieu of getting something that we perceive as important achieved.
However, lack of sleep on a continuous basis has been linked to all sorts of health problems, including Alzheimer's and Dementia, not to mention heart disease, and much, much more.
It's more important than ever that you're getting the requisite 7-9 hours of sleep each 24-hour cycle. Below, Espinosa Family Chiropractic goes over a few ways to achieve more restful sleep.
Exercise 3-4 Times Per Week
When we don't get our exercise in, this means we have excess energy, which can turn against us in the form of anxiety and stress. After a nice long workout, we generally have a better perspective on things after we've burned off that extra steam. Remember that our ancestors got 15,000-20,000 steps in per day. If we can be somewhere around there, we'll all be much happier campers and much better sleepers.
Stop drinking caffeine past 4pm and try to make that second cup you might have during the day a half-caff (half regular; half decaffeinated coffee) in order to limit your caffeine intake. Drinking too much caffeine and drinking caffeine late in the day is a surefire way to disrupt your sleep cycles.
Utilize Chiropractic Treatment
Chiropractic treatments have been shown to promote a more restful night of sleep, not to mention reduce overall anxiety and depression. After you get a treatment at Espinosa Family Chiropractic you'll leave our offices feeling great. Contact us today to learn more about how our treatments go hand in hand with a healthy lifestyle.
At Espinosa Family Chiropractic we deal with a fair amount of patients who come to us feeling the tension in their bodies from their everyday grinds. Often, we find that people's necks, backs, and their joints take on a tremendous amount of their daily pressures.
Below, we go over a few ways to alleviate joint pain as well as how our treatments can provide drug-free pain relief.
Stretch Every Day
Stretch at least once every day, whether it's a quick 10-minute session or you dedicate an entire hour to stretching is up to you. You'll start to notice your body recover from workouts more quickly, not to mention feel better in your own skin day-to-day.
Exercising your body might seem counterproductive to healing your joint pain, but exercise and strength training will actually strengthen our muscles, which will help support our spine as well as our joints. Repetitive motion has been linked to joint pain, so try to switch up your workouts as often as possible.

When it comes down to it, some of us have more energy than others throughout the day and much of it has to do with the choices we make throughout the day for our health and wellness. When we're eating good foods, getting the right amount of sleep, as well as staying active and hydrating, this sets the tables for an energy-infused day consistently.
Below, Espinosa Family Chiropractic goes over a few ways to stay energized throughout the day.
1.) Power Nap
Power naps are a great way to replenish yourself in the middle of the day. Try to time your naps for 15-45 minutes, because you don't want to over nap, which might increase drowsiness.
2.) Smoothie Power
Drink a veggie smoothie with kale, garlic, chlorophyll, and add some protein powder that works for you. You'll feel amazing!
3.) Exercise Regularly
Exercising regularly will help energize you throughout the day and reduce daily anxiety, helping promote a healthy night of sleep.

In this day and age, more and more people are looking for homeopathic, all-natural solutions to diversify their health and wellness repertoire. Chiropractic treatment used to have a negative stigma attached to it. Many folks expect chiropractic treatment to be a finite experience, like, say, a few treatments and then you're cleared to get back in the game.
However, it's important to look at the big picture. Every day we sit in cars and in offices, then many of us go exercise and carry sizeable loads in our personal and professional lives. That means that your body is constantly going through the wringer. Chiropractic treatment can address specified problems like spine pain, headaches, even insomnia and gastrointestinal issues. However, chiropractic also works to decompress our bodies, working to improve our flexibility and range of motion at the same time. To get an adjustment is to recalibrate the body and mind.
Couldn't you use that every once in a while? We think so, too.
That's why Espinosa Family Chiropractic is here year-round to provide our all-natural, drug-free treatments that are aimed at treating the whole patient. Contact us today to learn about how chiropractic care can fit into your self-care routine.
