The holidays present a time where many of us slack off on our health and wellness routines. Not only that, but the holidays also happen to be a time where many of us overspend on gifts and create stressful situations for ourselves in order to create idealized holiday events that are better suited in the movies.
Instead, think of the holiday break as a great time to double-down on your wellness routine, not to mention practice a little self-care that will go a long way during a time of year where some of us lose sight of what the holidays are supposed to be about: spending quality time with our loved ones.
During your holiday break, try to get out into the world and do something -- maybe go on a nature hike or visit a museum. Do something that expands your world a little bit instead of just going through the same holiday routine.
Make sure that you practice a few traditions along the way, which is what the holidays are about. If you come from a less ideal family situation, it's time for you to create your own, new traditions with your loved ones.
Make sure to alleviate any stress or anxiety, which are two common emotions associated with this time of year, with chiropractic treatments, which provide drug-free pain relief for your back, neck, and joints, not to mention reduce anxiety, boost mood, and help patients achieve more restful sleep. Contact Holmes Chiropractic to learn more about how chiropractic treatment will help you have a stress and anxiety-free holiday season.
It's important to get outdoors when we can, especially as many of us stay cooped up in cars driving in traffic, cramped in cubicles working our daily grinds, many of us living in dense urban centers that are well-populated. Even the places where many of us try to get our workouts in are overcrowded, so it's important to check out and decompress outdoors every once in a while.
Holmes Chiropractic believes in the benefits of staying connected -- both to each other and mother nature. Even during the colder months of the year, you can put the onus on yourself, bundle up, and get your nature fix. Take a hike or go on a trail run in lieu of hitting up the treadmill.
Go rock climbing if weather permits. Or, you can take full advantage of the adverse weather and head up to the mountains for skiing or snowboarding, which are both good exercises for engaging your core.
Chiropractic treatment is also a great way to recover from your new outdoorsy lifestyle. Contact us today for an adjustment, which will help optimize your body and mind.

When it comes down to it, living our most healthy lives is just a matter of making a few small changes. Although the changes may be simple, that doesn't mean they're not difficult to achieve. The measures Holmes Chiropractic discusses below require discipline and commitment in order to achieve and reap the health benefits.
The sooner you can cut out junk food completely, the better. Stay away from fast food places, stay away from candy, and stay away from foods laden with processed carbohydrates. These foods have little to no nutritional value and wreak havoc on your digestive system.
Aim for 2 salads a day. Get your kale and broccoli servings, not to mention eat your spinach. Leafy greens and cruciferous vegetables have tons of nutrients and are easier on your digestive system than processed foods.
It's time to rethink when and why we eat. Limit yourself to eating all of your day's food within an 8-10 hour window to enjoy the benefits that intermittent fasting brings. Stop eating right before bed as it will disrupt your sleep.
