Do you have a little more time on your hands?  Are you back from all your summer travels?  Is your house quieter now that your kids are back to school?  Are you ramping up for the fall activities and the holiday season?  Are you prepared for the flu season?  Are you feeling stressed about all the things forthcoming?

Just this morning I had a patient tell me that she’s been waiting anxiously for her kids to go back to school so she could take care of herself.  Sometimes we (especially us moms!) get so busy that we neglect ourselves in the interest of taking care of others and ‘getting things done!’  We feel like we have to keep going for other people.  Well, now that life has shifted a little bit and you have a little more time, please make a point to do something healthy for yourself.

  • See a NUCCA chiropractor
  • Get exercising
  • Sleep!  (as best as you can; NUCCA has been known to improve insomnia)
  • Laugh
  • Improve your diet/nutrition (food is the building blocks of your health)

Take inventory of your health.  You have to maintain strength to take care of others.  Fill up your health cup a little (or a lot!) so that you are available for your family and friends.  If you don’t know if you need help, call Vital Life Wellness Center for a free consultation.  (925) 829-7900. You owe it to your family to be healthy.
