Did you know that nearly 90% of all New Year's Resolutions are never met? Yes, it's true! But, the most interesting part of New Year's Resolution Studies is the fact that all resolutions are centered around increased happiness.
When we sit back and reflect on our life experiences up to this point, we often ask ourselves the question:
"Why am I unhappy?", and deep within our innate intelligence, we have all the answers but rarely do we take our own advice.
We can set these health goals year after year and still ignore them somehow.
Why do we do this? Well, it's part of being human. We are a tribal culture yet we have profound needs to be independent.
Thus, is our human dilemma.
Luckily, Chiropractic care is a modality that taps you directly into your body's innate healing wisdom, which means, the doctor can help you access this healing potential to help you feel better and better each year of your life. When you are receiving high-quality Chiropractic care such as that at our office, t's not about surviving anymore, it's about thriving.
So, the answer to the question is simple and it is this: "You are no happy, because you are not healing", but as a patient of Dr. McCoy's, he'll help you do just that...heal to be happy.
Every year, countless New Year’s resolutions are made. Lose weight. Quit smoking. Get more sleep at night. Be more active. Eat healthier. Many times the year comes and goes with minimal (if any,) improvements. While it’s great to set goals, it’s important to keep in mind the how. To get from point A to point B, we need a plan.. nothing so complex we are overwhelmed before we begin, but something reasonable. We need a roadmap. We need to know how many “miles" we need to get there… wherever “there,” may be. We need to know how many miles should be driven each day and which way to turn.
At Advanced Spine and Wellness, we see patients every day who are tired of the status quo. For years, we’ve been helping patients in their journey to a better quality of life. We’ve helped patients in an immeasurable amount of physical pain finally feel good. We’ve helped sleeping habits improve, productivity at work increase tremendously, and families’ quality time at home to be enhanced. In short, we’ve seen people’s lives improve over all. The results we see in the clinic aren’t magic but are real.
Our bodies are complex machines and at the center of it all is the spine. Chiropractic care focuses on the body’s natural abilities. With a little help, a body can be manipulated to perform its job more effectively. Adjustments help the body to align- allowing for optimal functioning and optimal healing. For this reason, the results of chiropractic care extend far and wide.
A long life is fantastic… when mobility is up and we are able to experience life. As we approach another year, we’re reminded that each year is a blessing and with this blessing comes a certain amount of responsibility. We are responsible to care for our bodies as best we can. By choosing the natural route, we are making the decision (whether consciously or not,) to embrace the power of our own bodies. We are also making the decision to seek the “bigger picture.” Rather than simply treat the symptom, we are treating the cause.
A new year is often a new start. New Year’s resolutions are about being proactive. Instead of life happening to us, we now hop in the driver’s seat. I believe this is why New Year’s resolutions will never go out of style, no matter what year it is or what happened the year before.
If you are determined to improve your health, therefore improving your life over all, we are here for you. While fashion trends come and go along with what and who is trending on Twitter, we each have our own unique life to live… and being healthy will look and feel good every year!
