Staying active over a holiday weekend might seem like a daunting task, but you can effectively get your relaxation time in while doing a few active things over MLK Day weekend. Below, Community Chiropractic & Acupuncture of Park Slope goes over a few ways to get your fitness in this weekend.
Take a rigorous yoga class this weekend to do your body and spine some good. Some yoga routines out there are bonafide strength training workouts, while others are more geared toward decompression and relaxation.
Go down to your local park because there are sure to be people out and about. Play some pick-up basketball to meet new people and to get some cardio in. You'll feel good about it afterward!
Go back to nature this weekend by going to a hike, walking around a nearby pond or body of water, or even just going for a brisk walk in your neighborhood.
Make sure to schedule a chiropractic adjustment if your MLK Day weekend activities put any amount of strain on your back, neck, or joints. Community Chiropractic & Acupuncture of Park Slope has a long track record of keeping our patients healthy and in the game!
As many of us solidify our New Year's resolutions, it's important to take note of the fact that it's our everyday behaviors that are either going to propel us to victory or stand in our way and hold us back.
Below, Community Chiropractic & Acupuncture of Park Slope goes over a few negative habits that you should consider breaking this year to have a healthy and productive 2020.
Smoking, drinking, and engaging in any sort of behavior that puts your health at risk should be at the top of your list of behaviors to get rid of this year.
It's natural for many of us to keep from ourselves and live on islands of sorts, however, that's the opposite of what human beings were meant to do. We are at our best when we're joined with communities and helping each other out. Of course, it's great to enjoy solitude, but make sure that you have plenty of group activities that you engage in.
It's natural for most of us to put in the least amount of effort and want the highest return on that minimal effort. That's okay, however, it's important to push past your laziness. Any time you identify an opportunity to go the extra mile -- whether that's for you or for someone else -- try to do it!
Self-care is an important good habit to cultivate this year. Contact Community Chiropractic & Acupuncture of Park Slope to learn about how our treatments can help get the very best out of you in 2020.
This year the chiropractic profession is set to enjoy its 125th year in practice. For those who are on the fence about whether or not to pursue the drug-free treatments of chiropractic, knowing that patients have been pursuing chiropractic as a viable treatment for pain, discomfort, joint problems, insomnia, and more for over a century might help them in making their decision.
Back in the year 1895 chiropractic treatment was first applied as D.D. Palmer adjusted Harvey Lillard in Davenport, Iowa. People from all walks of life and of all ages have been enjoying chiropractic adjustments ever since.
Now that it's 2020, chiropractors around the world acknowledge the 125th anniversary of the founding of this amazing profession and gift that keeps on giving.

New Year's resolutions are probably something we've all pondered over at the beginning of the year, which is why Community Chiropractic & Acupuncture of Park Slope thought it would be a good idea to go over some of the top resolutions that people make at the beginning of the year. If anything on this list inspires you, be our guest!
Many folks will be heading into the gym come January 1st. Instead of getting that gym membership (gyms are sure to be crowded this time of year), maybe take a more skilled fitness class to level up.
Getting to the next level financially will be on many people's resolutions list this coming year.
Eating healthy foods and engaging in a more nutritional lifestyle will be a common goal held by many in the coming year.

As another holiday season comes and goes, it's important to take stock of your year around this time to see how you stacked up against your annual goals or objectives. Even if you didn't create a list of New Year's resolutions it's likely you had ideas for ways you could push yourself to achieve more.
Did your objectives have to do with your relationships? Did you vow to dedicate yourself to exercising more and eating more nutritionally? Maybe your goals had more to do with finances and career this year.
Either way, how do you feel about what you accomplished? When we push ourselves through uncomfortable situations, we come out the other side stronger people, having grown from our experiences. If any of that went on this year, you should feel good about things.
However, even if you had an amazing year, it's likely that you might have slacked in at least one area. Moving forward, maybe it's a good idea to focus on that area you underachieved in, so you can up your game.
Chiropractic treatment is a great companion when it comes to achieving your goals. A chiropractic adjustment helps increase your range of motion, provides drug-free pain relief, and also helps boost your mind/body balance... in more ways than one. Make chiropractic treatments a part of your wellness protocol heading into the new year, you won't be sorry!

In the spirit of the holiday season, Community Chiropractic & Acupuncture of Park Slope would like to go over a few healthy gift options to consider this year, instead of choosing the obligatory gift cards that get passed around by so many in lieu of more creative gift ideas.
Purchasing a gym membership or a few yoga classes for a friend or a loved one is a great gift idea that will keep on giving.
Chances are just about anyone who makes it through a stressful holiday season could benefit from a professional-grade massage.
Essential oils and/or the means to use essential oils are both great gift options that you and your friend can come together about as you both gain interest in using essential oils for health, wellness, and relaxation purposes.
A muscle roller is a great idea that will help relieve muscle tension that comes about from rigorous fitness routines.
Chiropractic adjustments make amazing gifts! Contact Community Chiropractic & Acupuncture of Park Slope today to learn about the many health and wellness benefits that just one adjustment can bring to you or a loved one's life. Have a safe and happy holiday season!
