Have a Healthier Thanksgiving
It’s Thanksgiving time and there are so many things to be thankful for this year. We’re thankful for Subluxation free spines and mobile joints. Supple muscles with elastic flexibility and unimpeded nerve systems. An abundance of referrals and miracle testimonials. We’re especially grateful for Chiropractic and the many lives that have been saved by its faithful application. But most of all we’re thankful for all our patients we get the chance to take care of each day.
Here are some tips to make your Thanksgiving weekend healthier and a little more enoyable:
-Avoid bending directly over the oven to lift the turkey. Crouch and use your legs and knees for better balance. This will avoid putting all the weight-bearing stress on the lower spine.
-If you are going on a long drive to visit friends or relatives, make sure to take a break from driving and get out of your vehicle and stretch. This helps to restore normal posture.
-When loading your vehicle for a trip or the grocery store, organize your luggage, packages and goods into smaller loads, as opposed to carrying them all in one load.
-Drink water. Water is an appetite suppresant, so make the effort to drink lots of water throughout the day. Drinking ample water can prevent you from overeating.
-Go for a walk. Going for a walk can encourage the digestive juices to start flowing after your Thanksgiving meal. This will help burn off some of the calories that you’ve just consumed and will also help you get over any stomach ache that you may feel when you’re done eating.
Even though that after dinner nap sounds great, try to avoid sleeping while sitting or slouching on the couch or the recliner. Sleeping in this position may cause the joints in the body to irritate nerves and blood vessels and cause muscle spasms.
With these few simple tips, we wish you all a happy and healthy Thanksgiving!
