Did you know that when your body is off-balance, you are more prone to sickness and pain? Our daily choices and way of life significantly affect how we feel. Our bodies need balance.
Balance is the body's ability to maintain its center of mass even during movement. Balance is maintained by multiple systems in the body working together. Our bodies are strongest and happiest when we drink enough water, keep our blood sugar steady, sleep consistently, get sunlight and use our muscles.
Are you maintaining balance for your body?
Are you drinking enough water? Water flushes toxins and lubricates joints. Drinking water can boosts energy and strengthens the immune system.
Are you eating healthy foods that promote healing? Maybe consider limiting caffeine, as it can amplify the body's stress response.
Are you sleeping? Sleep is a time of rest and repair. Setting a sleep time and wake time may be helpful as brains love routine. Consistent sleep helps set your biological clock.
Are you getting outside and soaking up some vitamin D, which is critical for physical strength? Nature can be very healing and positively affect our mood, attention, and concentration.
Are you moving your muscles? It can be hard to move when you are in pain. Exercising even low impact can strengthen your body, lubricate your joints, improve your range of motion and flexibility, stimulate blood and flow and reduce stress.
Your body has many ways of telling you that something is off-balance, and pain is one of them. Take time to rebalance. If you need more ideas and would like to talk with a professional, give us a call at 520-459-1386.
