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.

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.

As the end of the year approaches it's important to ensure that you've maximized your insurance benefits. Many folks, due to either lack of time or lack of attention paid to their policy guidelines, end up losing out on coverage benefits as the year concludes, most insurance policies refusing to roll-over benefits into the next year.

Chiropractic treatment is covered by most every insurance provider -- some researchers even found that up to 87% of insured workers in America having coverage plans that cover chiropractic services.

At Espinosa Family Chiropractic we specialize in providing chiropractic treatments that boost mobility, provide drug-free pain relief, and help boost cognitive function -- among countless additional health and wellness benefits.

Chiropractic treatment is a great way to recalibrate the body and mind as you head into the new year. Schedule your consultation with Espinosa Family Chiropractic to end the year strong and healthy.

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.

One effective way we teach our patients special “back care” exercises at Espinosa Family Chiropractic is through our bi-weekly Back Care Class.

We have a board-certified specialist in back care who conducts each Back Care Class who gives each student/patient the necessary tools and wellness protocols that are needed in order to properly take care of and maintain themselves in everyday life. You're only as healthy as your spine, after all!

Back Classes are a way of giving our patients a deeper knowledge of what chiropractic treatment is, which specific chiropractic adjustments each patient responds to (not to mention the particular function of each adjustment), and how they can assist their bodies on their own during healing, corrective, and workout recovery processes.

We'll also teach you different daily stretches, proper sitting positions & how to maintain perfect posture, which sleeping positions are best for you, and much, much more. Contact Espinosa Family Chiropractic today to schedule a consultation and learn more about our educational classes for our patients to take advantage of.
