Working Yoga into Your Busy Week

Yoga, same with chiropractic care, can be an excellent practice that will bring you untold health benefits when it comes to your back, neck, spine, joints, your legs, and even your brain!

It’s all true, yet when it comes to taking care of ourselves, many of us tend to slack in that department, justifying the move by saying we have busy schedules. But, the truth is, yoga can be worked into even the busiest work week. Read on for a few ways you can bring yoga into your daily ritual.

Yoga in the Morning

If you have a computer, watch yoga videos and pull together a beginner routine if you have no experience. With a mat and a little bit of willingness, you’ll get a good stretch in and even experience the breathing and meditative benefits of yoga before you start your day.

Work Yoga

Take a break for a few minutes each hour to stretch it out. If you know some yoga moves, even better! You’ll be relieving your body of the strain from sitting at the computer or being on your feet all day.

Yoga Class

Taking a yoga class will help you up your game so your solo sessions become even more beneficial. Taking a class will also hold you accountable for showing up, which is 90% of the battle.

3 Ways to Achieve More Restful Sleep

Achieving more restful sleep on a nightly basis will help you be more alert during the day, which will help you be more effective at work, while being active during exercise, and even keep you more engaged in your personal relationships as a result of being recharged and well-rested each day.

It’s when our sleep becomes compromised, whether it be from having too much caffeine, not getting as much exercise, or the dealing with the daily stresses of life, that our wellness can take a serious slow. Below are a few ways that you can get better sleep, which will help you increase productivity, boost wellness, and even avoid injury that comes about from fatigue.

1.) Do Yoga

Yoga is a great way to release tension in the body. The right yoga class will also give you an incredible workout.

2.) Exercise to Exertion

Try to push yourself and get a cardiovascular workout at least 3-4 times per week. If you can set aside an hour 5 times per week and strike the right balance between cardio and strength training, this will help relieve anxiety and help the body get its steps in, which will help you earn better sleep at night.

3.) Meditation

Meditation is a great way to increase relaxation and help you reduce stress and overall anxiety. Meditation will also help you improve mindfulness and improve sleep.

Chiropractic care is also a great way to boost wellness and make sure that your body is functioning at optimum capacity. Nothing is more soothing and relaxing than getting a chiropractic adjustment, which has also been shown to help with improving patient’s sleep.

5 Foods to Boost Your Wellness

It’s important to start thinking about eating in terms of what it does for your, the effects it has on your body, and the ways it can fuel your productivity throughout your day. So many of us only think of food in terms of pleasure, but once we’re able to start thinking a little differently, it can lead to more conscious awareness of what we’re putting in our body.

Below are a few foods you can start incorporating into your diet immediately (unless you’re allergic, of course).

1.) Kale

Kale is an amazing superfood packed with antioxidants and vitamins that help fuel your day and boost your overall health. Kale will even help reduce your risk of getting heart disease and help lower your blood pressure.

2.) Beets

Beats are intense in color but low in calories; they’re a fantastic source of nutrients like fiber and vitamin C. Beets also help lower your blood pressure.

3.) Garlic!

Garlic is rich in allicin, which has antivirus, antibacterial, and antioxidant properties. In even small amounts garlic is very good at keeping your body healthy. Garlic is also rich in vitamins like B1, B6, manganese, calcium, copper, and more!

4.) Walnuts

Walnuts are rich in those good fats you want that fuel your cognition. Eat them any time of day for a boost!

3 Activities that Engage Your Core

You’ve likely often heard your annoying personal trainer friend preaching to you about engaging your core, but, the truth is, there are few activities that we actively engage in on a daily basis that incorporate our core stabilizer muscles.

You can think of your core as essentially your torso and all of the muscles involved therein. Below Scorca Chiropractic Center goes over a few activities you can start doing that will help you engage your core muscles, which will help you strengthen and protect your back, neck, and spine.

1.) Paddleboarding

Paddleboarding is a fun, scenic, and rigorous activity that constitutes a total body workout. The act of paddling yourself forces you to rotate back and forth, which will give you an excellent core workout quite fast.

2.) Yoga

There are certain types of yoga that you can do that will be a core-strengthening workout for you. Seek out the poses and routines that incorporate your core muscles and go from there! Do your yoga outdoors to get some much-needed vitamin D and fresh air.

3.) Engage in Deep Breathing

Engaging in deep breathing exercises, and even laughing often, actually engages your core more than you think. It’s a great way to cross off the mind, body, and spirit boxes!
