Are these 5 things killing you?

1- Your Attitude
This can be the most devastating thing that is robbing you of health and joy. Research shows that those negative thoughts that you have create a neurological and physical change in your body chemistry and cause a breakdown cascade of events. Remember – YOU CHOOSE your attitude, your circumstances do not!
Action: Write down 3 things you are grateful for every day for 3 weeks and see how your attitude changes!

2- Your Kitchen Cupboards
Since everyone knows that clean, fresh, wholesome food is essential to health and life, why are most people eating foods that are killing them? Simply put, they have got into the habit of it and they are afraid or feel unequipped to make changes.

3- Your Couch
New research is showing how sitting has detrimental effects on your health and life. Sitting is now considered the new smoking. The more you sit, the worse it is. Being physically active is a way of life, not just an exercise routine you do 3 times a week.
Action: If you watch tv, do sittups, pushups, jumping jacks, lunges etc during commercials. Also, put yourself in environments that support movement and fun. Find out when our next walk/run group starts by joining our email list (max is 2 emails per month).

4- Your Posture
Yes, your mom was right when she told you to sit up straight! Research shows that curled shoulders and head forward posture is correlated with earlier death. Most people think posture is something they consciously do and can therefore correct it by thinking about it more. For most people this isn’t the case. It is actually caused by a previous asymptomatic injury that has healed in wrong and therefore must be corrected in order to correct the posture.
Action: If you want to fix your posture, see a local chiropractor who specializes in postural and spinal correction (like us☺). Click here to book an appointment.

5- Your Perceived Stress
Yes, I said perceived. Stress to you is joy to someone else. When you perceive something as stressful, it creates a cascade of events that eventually leads to an increase in cortisol in the body. This is linked to most chronic diseases that we see today.
Action: Either lower your chances of having stressful circumstances (tough to do most times), or change your perception of the stressor. Look at it in the context of “In my eulogy, with this be a major part of it”. If no, then relax a little, trust a little, and have a little faith!

Finally, action is required to move to where you want to go in your health and life. Which one of the action steps above are you going to take – after all, remember that your life depends on it!
