Are You Driftwood, or an Anchor? Article of the week June 4 to 8, 2018
This past weekend I spent some time at my wife's family cottage in Grand Bend. As you'll see in the video streaming on our office televisions, the beach was littered with vast amounts of driftwood. Jen and I had some great walks along the shore of Lake Huron and the masses of dried up wood that had washed ashore made me think about a great health metaphor.
We all go through seasons in our lives where we are more on track with our life and health goals than others. I find a season that people tend to get on track with their health goals is New Year's when people use the blank slate of a new year to set new goals and make new commitments. For some, the health commitments that they make at the start of a new year don't last long before they start to drift back in the direction of their old bad habits.
The direction that driftwood travels is influenced by the water's current and the wind, and where it ultimately ends up and washes ashore is determined by forces that are acting upon it. In the same way, where you end up with your health can be influenced by people around you, and life's circumstances. If you are surrounded by people who are sedentary, who are negative, who don't get adjusted regularly and who make poor dietary choices, it is easy to be influenced by these relationships, and as a result, your health can drift.
The season of summer itself can act against your best health intentions. Summertime usually involves more company, travel, and occasions to celebrate and get off track. I've noticed that of all the times of year that I adjust people, summer is the time that people are most likely to miss adjustments and lose momentum in their spinal correction.
Being conscious that summertime can be a season of drifting should help you make some intentional plans of what you can do to stay on track with your health this summer. Here are some suggestions of things you can do to help you prevent drift with your health and stay anchored over the summer months:
You don't have to use all of my suggestions - you can be creative and make some of your own habits to prevent drift this summer. These suggestions will help you feel better, have more energy and make the most of the summer holidays.

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!
