As we start out the year many of us are hitting the pavement and taking on rigorous exercise routines to either get in or stay in shape. Below, Holmes Chiropractic goes over a few low-impact workouts that will be easier on your spine and joints than other modes of exercising, like running, playing basketball, football, etc.

Swimming

Swimming can be an excellent workout and it's far better for your joints than running. You can mix up cardio and strength training in the pool as well.

Rock Climbing

Rock climbing is great for your back and doesn't have the high impact qualities that many popular sports do -- that is when you practice rock climbing safely and effectively.

 Paddleboarding

Paddleboarding is a great activity for your core muscle group. This activity is generally done in lakes and large bodies of water, so it's likely ideal to engage in this exercise in warmer weather.

Even if your workout includes high-impact exercise, that's okay, too, because Holmes Chiropractic is here to straighten you out if your spine ever gets out of line. We also provide treatments that improve your range of flexibility, help promote healthy sleep, reduce anxiety, optimize your body and brain, and more! Contact us today to schedule your consultation.

At Holmes Chiropractic we're all about educating our patients about what they can do on their own to ensure they achieve peak health and wellness.

This year, it's a good idea to focus on building healthy habits. As Aristotle once said, "Excellence is a habit," and, "We are what we do habitually," (paraphrased, of course).

Below, Holmes Chiropractic goes over a few habits to build this year to ensure you achieve all your goals in 2020.

Exercise Your Body

Run and strength train. Try to learn a new skill that incorporates fitness -- dance or martial arts might be a good place to explore. Pushing your body multiple times each week will also help you reduce anxiety and promote healthy sleep.

Wake Up 1 Hour Earlier

Waking up just one hour earlier will give you time to do something for yourself before you start your day. It's a far better place to begin each day than starting things off by engaging in our responsibilities and submitting to the agendas of others as the day progresses.

Recover, Recover, Recover

Chiropractic treatment is a great way to ensure you recover from your work/life balance. Contact Holmes Chiropractic to learn more about our drug-free health and wellness treatments.

New Year's Eve is a time of year where many people take it upon themselves to head out to nightclubs and bars in order to pay expensive cover charges and stand shoulder to shoulder with massive crowds, which can often present unsafe situations for any of us.

Below, Holmes Chiropractic goes over a few ways to ring in the new year as safely as possible.

Stay at Home

Hold a small soiree at your place this year in order to avoid crowds and paying exorbitant sums of money for overpriced drinks. Invite a few cherished friends. Watch a good movie and eat some fun cuisine.

Limit Your Alcohol Intake

It's a plain and simple fact that our inhibitions are diminished when we drink adult beverages, so we're less likely to make impulsive choices if we steer clear of it. There aren't many worse ways to start out the new year than with a hangover.

Be Productive

Work on a project or task leading into the evening instead of watching the ball drop -- it's a great way to start your new year on a positive note.

Contact Holmes Chiropractic to learn about how our treatments can help you achieve your resolutions this year. We have a long track record of treating the whole patient, instead of just masking the symptoms.

At Holmes Chiropractic we just want to check-in before the end of the year to see how our patients are feeling.

Did you accomplish all of your health and wellness goals for 2019?

Now is the time to take stock of how your year went, identify your strong points and point out your weak areas where you may have underachieved. One good indicator is how you feel. If you've changed your diet, do you find yourself feeling more healthy on a daily basis? Do you find yourself feeling particularly awful now when you eat something low in nutrition?

Taking a look at your new benchmarks can be another good indicator. Are you feeling stronger? If your mile time at an all-time low? If you haven't seen the results you wanted, maybe it's time to look in the mirror for ways you can improve.

Chiropractic treatment is a great way to feel amazing year-round and a great way to set the tone for a healthy and productive 2020. Contact Holmes Chiropractic today to learn more about how our treatments bring out a better you.

Instead of getting your friend or family member a gift card to a restaurant or that next must-have smart device, perhaps it's a better idea to provide a gift that involves some sort of self-care practice. Below, Holmes Chiropractic goes over a few alternative gift ideas to give to your loved ones this holiday season.

Yoga Classes

Most people intend to do something like yoga and simply never go through with it. Often, we get out of our comfort zones when persuaded by others, and this can certainly occur due to a gift. Buy that friend or family member a one month yoga pass at your local studio. Maybe even opt to take the class with them!

Kettlebells

You might not think of exercising as practicing self-care, but it actually is. Kettlebells are great to have at the house and provide you with a number of core lift options to build your back, which will help protect your spine.

Chiropractic Treatment

You might not think of it initially, but a visit with the local chiropractor is a fantastic gift idea. Contact Holmes Chiropractic today to learn more about our rates and services. Chiropractic adjustments provide an assortment of self-care benefits for the entire family!

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.
