At Family Chiropractic and Natural Healing Center, we like to make suggestions to our patients about how they can live more active, healthy lifestyles outside of their chiropractic care visits with us. A big part of that is not only maintaining a healthy diet and rigorous exercise routine, but it also means engaging in the active recovery that helps our bodies function at their optimum capacity.
It just so happens that yoga is a fantastic activity that both serves as physical activity and an activity of recovery, stretching the body, especially where tightness and strain occur from the daily grind. Below we give a few ways you can incorporate yoga into your daily routine.
It doesn't matter if you're sitting or standing more during the day, it's perfectly fine to incorporate some stretching into your workday. Try to do it for a few minutes, three times during your workday, making sure to target your legs, hips, back, neck, and spine.
It doesn't matter if you're standing in line at the grocery store or at the bank, you can incorporate a couple of yoga moves to break the monotony. Some may look at you strange, but who really cares? This is your wellness we're talking about here.
If you're an athlete or engage in particularly strenuous physical activity during the week, it's likely you'll want to take a day off from everything. But making yoga a part of your off day is a great way to stay active without putting any strain on your body. It's also a great way to recharge from a hectic training regiment or a stressful work week.
