The team at Clear Connections Chiropractic knows we all want to be healthy, not just because we want to look good in the mirror — it’s because we want to feel good too. When we hit our golden years, we want to still be taking on roles in our own “personal action movie”, not rolling along in a scooter while other people stand in for the life we wish we had. Read, absorb, and take action on these Super Hero health tips!
3. Take charge of stress
Too much stress opens the door for heart disease, diabetes, obesity, and high blood pressure. Take it down a notch with relaxing activities that soothe the soul, like a walk or a few minutes of meditation.
4. Get enough sleep
Experts recommend 8 hours for a reason. Those who don’t get enough sleep are inclined to eat more and gain weight, perpetuating the cycle of low energy and a sluggish, slow spirit.
Be sure to hit the hay at a reasonable time, even on weekends. Do you really need to stay out drinking until 2am? Why not turn in early and get up at 8 a.m. and start drinking something that’ll help you get going: good ol’ H2O.
Let your mind refuel and you can power through every day with super-human strength.
5. Find your joy
Many people worldwide suffer from depression, in degrees ranging from a general feeling of sadness to debilitating depression that prevents them from getting out of bed.
Good food and exercise are great ways to combat mild forms of depression. But also try finding things that bring a sense of joy. Whether it’s music, a favorite activity like painting or communing with nature, these are essential to be truly joyous in spirit.
Surround yourself with love and erase negativity from your space. That includes negative people (keep contact with Debbie Downer or Bad News Brad limited) and negative space (get the clutter out and give your rooms a fresh new look).
Also, laughing really is good medicine. Its benefits include relieving stress, easing the pain, boosting the immune system and releasing mood-boosting endorphins.
If you are still having trouble, think of it like this:
What are you good at?
What do you know?
What are you passionate about?
Fill your life and others with those three things and you’ll be a pretty happy camper.
Again we put these superpower tips into bite-sized pieces because we want you to have time to take action.
