How is 2018 Going to be Different?               Article of the week Jan 8-12, 2018

Every January I like to take some time to think about what I want to accomplish over the next 12 months.  I know that if I don't set some clearly defined goals it is likely that my life is going to look the same 12 months from now as it does today.  There are many types of goals you can set but I want to focus on some health goals that you may wish to consider.  Here is a list of some goal suggestions together with 5 simple tips that I hope will help you be able to follow through and succeed with the goals you set:

  • Move more
  • Spend more time outside
  • Drink more water
  • Practice more acts of kindness
  • Practice gratitude (gratitude journal)
  • Sleep more (7-8 hrs) – go to be earlier
  • Eliminate soda (regular or diet)
  • Stop smoking
  • Achieve a healthy body composition (release weight)
  • Reduce alcohol consumption
  • Be more social
  • Eat more greens
  • Sit less
  • Get consistent with spinal traction exercises
  • Take an omega-3 supplement every day
  • Eliminate sugar
  • No eating after dinner, before bed

Now for 5 tips to help you succeed:

1.Commit to 30 days.  Don't think too far ahead.  If you can make it through the first month a new habit is much more likely to stick.

2.Do it daily.  Consistency is the key, and the more often you engage in the habit the better.  For example, it you're trying to move more, walk every day for the first 30 days, even if it's only for a short distance.

3.Enlist accountability.  If you can tell someone close that you trust what you are trying to change they can support you.  By sharing your goal you may have your accountability partner join you.

4.Write it down.  It has been proven that written goals are more likely to be achieved.

5.Start simple.  Pick the goal that is your highest priority and focus on that one.  Don't try to overwhelm yourself with too many changes at once.

I hope you'll take the time to consider at least one way you can move your health forward in 2018.  For a chance to win a gift card, simply write down what your health goal is with your name and place it in the ballot box on the coffee table.  Good luck!

For the first time in 10 years I didn't have a headache when I woke up - after only one adjustment!

Highly recommend Grace Chiropractic. Their approach to chiropractic care is truly life changing. Myself and my family have all been customers of Grace and have had excellent experiences. Since starting my program with Dr. Tim I have experienced significant relief and continue to receive treatments weekly!

I have been seeing Dr. Tim and his team since December 2016. I am grateful for every adjustment I've received. Instead of just treating your current ailment, Dr. Tim goes after the overall health of your spine and nervous system as you will learn at your info session. I came to Dr. Tim with tingling hands and numbness in both my arms, not only has this improved but I'd say by February I was feeling the best I've felt for the past 7 years.....body, mind and soul. And I have my Grace team, my denne roll and the few stretches Dr. Tim has given me to thank for it! So what are you waiting for.....give my Grace family a call today....you will not regret it!!

I have been attending Grace Chiropractic for many years now. Dr Tim was the first chiropractor I saw, and he is is much more than just a chiropractor. Dr Tim and the rest of the office staff are so focused on the well being, mind, body and soul, of each of their patients. You never walk into the office without a warm greeting, and you always leave with an uplifted spirit. Dr Tim not only makes adjustments and corrects any pain, but he gives you the tools to adjust your lifestyle to ensure you are the healthiest version of yourself. I am very grateful to all the staff at Grace Chiropractic!
