Time travel movies have taught us that making one small change in the past can drastically alter the present. One awkward high school prom in the 1950’s drastically changed Marty McFly’s life in 1985. Doesn’t that mean that one small change now can drastically change our near future? The reality is that dramatic changes don’t usually last. It’s the simple and easy changes that allow consistency to really change us.
I follow some wellness and fitness accounts on Instagram. They love to post things that say: “eat this, not that!” and they will post a pizza with a red X through it, and next to it have a bowl of kale and thistles inside a green circle. No one in the history of forever has ever wanted a pizza but been satisfied with a nasty salad. The simple change to start is to eat two pieces of pizza instead of three. Drink water instead of soda. Walk to lunch instead of ride. Park farther away from the door. You don’t have to be perfect to be better.
Don’t let little things be true for the worse. Often people stop doing something because it hurts, or they are worried that it will cause pain. They stop doing specific exercises, and eventually they stop doing almost all exercises. Eventually they consider the walk to the mailbox as their daily workout. It does not have to be that way. Chiropractic care can prevent this negative slide. It helps reduce or prevent pain, and can improve function and motion. Give us a call today, make that positive change to make your life better.
