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.

For many of us, there's that one elusive health change that we need to make as soon as possible that will drastically improve our quality of life. Whether it's losing that 10-20 extra pounds, quitting smoking (or drinking), or cutting out processed sugar for good, making that choice and sticking with it now will make a huge difference on your health moving forward.
Instead of making a few slight tweaks on many areas -- for instance, eating one less piece of candy per week, running 2 miles per week, or cutting down to half a pack of cigarettes -- take the deep plunge in that one major area to boost your health quick. Once you cut out processed sugar completely, you'll notice a huge health boost -- the same is true for actually quitting smoking and going through with achieving your ideal body weight.
The point is don't keep waiting until tomorrow to make that change you need to make. One more day of the same behavior will make it harder tomorrow to make improvements. Why wait to start living your best life anyway?
Another great lifestyle choice you can make now that will give you a huge health boost in numerous ways is pursuing chiropractic treatment. Contact Holmes Chiropractic today to schedule your consultation.
