Your nervous system is affected by the way your entire body feels, thinks, and acts. So when your body is under stress - the stress of every day life coupled with extra stressors from what’s happening in the world around us - what do you think happens to your nervous system?
And according to Dr. Gena of Dr. Gena Chiropractic in Plantation, “Not doing anything to manage the stress your body is under is like living on the beach during a category 5 hurricane and refusing to evacuate - sheer chaos.”
This isn’t intended to scare you. In fact, this blog from your favorite chiropractor in the Fort Lauderdale area is actually intended to make you feel better, inspire you, and give you peace of mind in letting you know that:
Chiropractic care works wonders on a stressed out nervous system - and help is just one adjustment away.
Recent, tragic events in our own backyards have put us all on high alert and have left us feeling emotional, sensitive, and worried. This is called emotional stress. And emotional stress affects us the same way as any other kind of stress, and leaves us all with that “I’m feeling so much tension in my neck and back and I’m not sure why,” kind of feeling.
The best thing you can do for your body in times of high emotional stress is anything that puts your mind at ease and helps with relaxing your nervous system. Chiropractic adjustments help reduce nerve system interference that are caused by stresses.
In addition to this, it’s important to factor in these 3 key stress-reducing activities into your daily life:
Just a few minutes per day is all you need - really! These days, many of us have a hard enough time getting to sleep let alone finding time to center ourselves and breathe deeply, or better yet, join a local yoga class. But have no fear, there’s an app for that! Headspace is a top-rated meditation app that will literally teach you how to calm down, breathe deeply, and reboot your nervous system, in just a few minutes per day. It’s like control/alt/delete for your stress.
Endorphins are magic. They’re like little magical beams of happiness and light that enter your mind and make you feel like you’re walking on air, without a stress or care in the world. Okay, maybe that’s overdoing it, but seriously - the endorphins that take over when we engage in physical activity of any kind immediately help to put us at ease and calm our nervous systems. Exercise is to mental health what breathing is to your lungs - necessary.
Taking it easy
In times of high stress, and especially on days where you feel like you’re one more thing away from losing your mind, TAKE IT EASY. Sometimes there is nothing more restorative and regenerating for your soul then a lazy afternoon on the couch, surrounded by loved ones, doing nothing but enjoying each other’s company. You’ve earned it.
At Dr. Gena Chiropractic we’re always happy to help you find ways to feel your best, whether through chiropractic adjustments in Plantation or with one of our famous Dr. Gena hugs. Your health is in your hands, but our hands are always here to help.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to the all those affected by the recent tragic events at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. We love you, Parkland.
