Feeling extra sleepy this week? Of course you are, we just lost an hour of the most precious and restorative thing our bodies need most…
Ironically, I am writing this on what is known as “Sleepy Monday,” a day known for its sleep deprivation effects on almost everybody due to daylight savings time (so forgive me if I ramble).
Sleepy Monday was a term coined by a business professor at the University of Washington, Christopher Barnes. In this piece, Barnes explained how “the Monday after we set out clocks forward is the one time of year when most Americans consistently don’t get enough sleep.”
Now, couple that chunk of news with the fact that most of us are not sleeping enough to begin with, have little ones at home that wake through the night, or are just too stressed to destress properly.
As per Barnes, sleeplessness is making us lazy, moody, and dangerous.
At Dr. Gena Chiropractic, we couldn’t be more fervent about doing all it takes to live your healthiest life. This means paying close attention to The Five Pillars of Health. Taking into account each one of these, together, is sure to help you feel better, live healthier, and achieve a greater sense of balance in your life:
Pillar 1 Positive Mental Attitude
A positive mental attitude sets the tone for all that you do, day in and day out!
Pillar 2 Proper Working Nervous System
The nervous system is defined by the brain and spinal cord. Spinal adjustments by a chiropractor will help to keep you in alignment and make sure that nervous system is working properly.
Pillar 3 Proper Exercise
Keep it moving, frequently. The more you move your body, the healthier it will be, and frankly, the better you’ll sleep!
Pillar 4 Proper Nutrition
Whole foods, fruits, and vegetables are the best way to go. Keeping things organic and earth-centered are best for your body. Here’s our rule: if you wouldn’t feed it to someone you love, please don’t eat it yourself!
Pillar 5 Proper Rest and Relaxation
Ahh, this is where it all comes full circle. Without the suggested 6-8 hours of sleep, it’ll feel as if the other four pillars don’t even matter. But here’s the good news – nothing will get you back on an amazing sleep cycle like a chiropractic adjustment. In fact, almost all patients report sleeping better and waking up the next day feeling a lot more rested following an adjustment.
So, what are you waiting for? Let’s stop living cranky, tired, overworked lives. Get your sleep on, with the help of Dr. Gena Chiropractic, a family chiropractor in Plantation, and make the best of your life!
