3 Easy Productivity Hacks

Have you ever thought to yourself that there's just not enough time in a day to get done what you need to get done? Trust us, you're not alone. That's why we decided to give our patients and readership some educational information about how one can be more productive on a daily basis.

Read on for a few easy tricks to tweak your lifestyle so you can start completing more of your daily tasks.

1.) Exercise

This might seem counterintuitive since you have so many things going on. However, by taking an hour to exercise, whether it be hitting the weights, running, or even something like Muay Thai training, you'll get your endorphins flowing and you'll feel better day-to-day. You'll actually start to notice when you don't get a workout in because your energy and positivity levels will seem low.

2.) Break Your Day Down By Hours

Try to start breaking your day down hour-to-hour. You'll start to see pockets of time where you might not be efficient. You might set aside an hour to get something done that only takes 20 minutes, then be frivolous with the rest of that hour. By doing a self-audit you'll be forced to see where you can be more efficient.

3.) Stop the Party

We get it, people like to go out. But you don't need to spend your time in late-night bars anymore. Think of an hour spent in a bar -- unless you're working -- as an hour wasted. When you start saying "No" to "The Party" you'll see that your energies are far better spent in other areas of your life.

Chiropractic treatments are a great way to unlock new potential in yourself as well. Contact Family Chiropractic and Natural Healing Center today to learn more.

Weight Training Dos and Don'ts

When it comes to weight training, doing it correctly is as important (if not more important) as doing it often. Below are a few best weight training practices and a few bad habits to try to avoid.

Do: Warm Up

Warming up is important, whether you do it for 10-20 minutes or for an entire hour. Warming up makes your muscles and joints more pliable. Shoot around a basketball before you hit the weights -- it will improve your recovery and performance.

Don't: Overload Weight

We get it, you want to be strong. However, by racking on the weight you're going to be putting a ton of pressure on certain areas of the body -- usually the back and various joints. Go lighter in weight and higher in reps to ensure optimium longevity.

Do: Focus on Technique

Technique and practicing good form are more important than lifting maximum weight. By focussing on achieving perfect technique you'll also minimize joint damage and focus on the muscle groups you intend to.

Don't: Overwork Yourself

You might be tempted to go hard right out of the gate, but by executing measured, precise workouts that don't leave you sore in the morning will help you stay active and stay in the game.

At Family Chiropractic and Natural Healing Center, we specialize in providing chiropractic treatments to our diverse patient base which set them up for living long and healthy lives. Another part of what we do over here is to provide education to our patients that help them live, feel, and look better.

Below are a few quick and easy ways to improve your lifestyle. It's the little things that add up!

1.) Take a Service-Style Attitude

Start thinking in terms of how you can be of service and how you can bring a certain amount of light to each situation. You'll be surprised how much more often people think of you when you start putting others first in your life.

2.) Cross Your Ts and Dot Your Is

Don't leave things that can be done today leftover for tomorrow. When you accomplish all that you set out to do in a day, you'll feel... well...  accomplished! You'll rest that easy sleep that comes along as a benefit from taking care of business.

3.) Get and Stay Well

Exercise your body and your mind. Take on new challenges and push yourself to start making healthier decisions moment to moment, whether that's going for a hike instead of binge-watching television, eating that kale salad instead of french fries, and reading a more difficult book instead of scrolling your normal news feed.

5 Ways to Get More Energy

As we go about our days, we might start to hit the proverbial wall at some point in the late afternoon. For many of us, by the time we get home, even though we still have a few things to cross off our to-do lists, we're ready to crash hard after the day's events.

Read on for a few tips to boost your daily energy.

1.) Eat Well

Eat foods designed to fuel the body -- clean, whole foods like veggies, protein, fruit, walnuts, etc. Stay away from processed carbs and refined sugars, which might give you an initial boost, but will make your crash. You want to be eating things that your body can digest easily, so you have more energy to burn.

2.) Stress Less

Our thought life spends a lot of our energy, so it's important to remain focused on the important things in life. Try not to sweat anything that is out of your control -- which is pretty much everything besides yourself.

3.) Exercise

Staying physically active will help boost your energy throughout the day. Make sure you don't push yourself too hard before a day's work, though.

4.) Sleep 7-9 Hours

Sleeping the requisite 7-9 hours each day is pivotal in maintaining your mental and physical health. You'll notice your energy levels rise and your times of fatigue start to decrease.

5.) Drink Half Your Body Weight in Ounces of Water

Staying hydrated is hugely important, and over 80% of the population does not hydrate enough. Drinking the right amount of water will help keep your body balanced and give you better mental clarity.

These tips mentioned above are mere suggestions. If you'd also like to learn how chiropractic treatments can reduce your fatigue, life depression, and help treat pain the drug-free all-natural way, contact Family Chiropractic and Natural Healing Center today to schedule your consultation.

Easy Tricks to Boost Your Longevity

Living a longer, better life is the goal of many people in today's health-conscious society. Even though technology and medicine have advanced much, the average life expectancy still lingers around the 70-80 range, which means many of us aren't exploring the possibilities of optimizing our health.

Follow the tips discussed below to increase your longevity. 

Get Your ZzZs

Make sure you get 7-9 hours of sleep each 24-hour period. Not getting enough sleep means your body isn't getting the regenerative time it needs to cleanse the body and brain of toxins and charge your mental and physical batteries. 

Eat Clean, While Foods

Shopping along the edges of the grocery store means you're shopping for veggies, fruits, and clean proteins. Stay away from sugar and processed carbohydrates whenever you can. A prolonged poor diet will certainly decrease your lifespan.

Stress Less

Find a way to let go of resentment. Find a way to quiet your mind and you'll experience untold health benefits. Meditate daily if you can build that practice. Do yoga. Workout until your body gets tired. Doing all of these things will boost your mental wellness and has been shown to help you live a longer, happier, healthier life.
