Memorial Day weekend is a perfect opportunity for you to stay active and keep your spine in mind. When it comes down to us, in many ways, we’re only as healthy as our spine. Spine misalignment can seriously put our bodies out of whack and mess with the connection and messaging going on between the body and brain.

Below are a few ways to keep your spine healthy this holiday weekend.

Drink Plenty of Water

Staying hydrated will ensure your body and brain run at optimum capacity. Drinking half your body weight in ounces of water daily is great for your spine and your joints as well. Keeps the body lubricated!

Activate Your Core

Try paddleboarding or some calisthenics on the beach to work your body’s core muscle group. Building your back is important to staying healthy and well.

Eat Healthy Food

Stay away from hotdogs and burgers if you can. Instead eat clean, whole foods and plenty of fruits and veggies.
