If you combine a healthy diet with chiropractic treatments, you'll unlock untold health benefits, including drug-free pain relief, improved cognitive function, increased flexibility and range of motion, not to mention improved immune system.

Below are a few ways to quickly improve your diet.

1.) Eat Good Food or Don't Eat

If it comes down to either eating fast food or not at all, choose the not at all. There is not a whole lot of nutritional value. It's best to hold off until you can eat clean, whole foods.

2.) Eat Smaller Portions

Eat smaller portions for easier digestion. Eating 5 smaller meals is preferable to 2-3 throughout the day.

3.) Eat for Fuel

Think about what you eat and what it does for your nutritionally. Try to only eat things that are good for you.

4.) Eat the Color Wheel

Try to eat all of the colors of the color spectrum, green, purple, blue, red, orange, etc. You'll find yourself eating innovative salads, healthy vegetables, and clean whole foods as a result.

5.) Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate

When it comes to fitness or even athletics, skill games, or anything that we might practice with an aim to get better at, there are often times when we hit a plateau, which can seem like we're at a stalemate of sorts. Working through these plateaus is paramount to getting past them. The worst thing you can do is quit. Below are a few ways to break past your plateau.

Give it a Rest

Maybe if you're trying very hard at something it's time to lay off it for a while. Oftentimes, when we take a break from something or even walk away from a problematic project for a small amount of time, we come back with fresh eyes and new perspective.

Practice Perfectly

Take lessons or learn from an expert in your field if you're looking to improve at a skill, game, etc. Their awesomeness is sure to rub off on you and propel you to new heights.

Learn Something New

If whatever you're practicing or trying to get better at seems boring or that you're no longer interested, learn something new, whether it has to do with what you're practicing or not. Learning a new skill or a new facet some something you already are familiar with will unlock new channels in your brain.

Chiropractic care is also a great way to break through any physical or mental hurdles you might be facing. Contact Community Chiropractic & Acupuncture of Park Slope today to schedule your consultation and learn more.

Meditation is a great idea, but for many of us it's easier said than done. When it comes down to it, it's pretty daunting to try to sit and turn your mind off for any extended amount of time. Sure, monks might do it for hours each day, but you don't have that kind of time. Below are a few tips to get your meditation time in each day a little easier.

Choose Good Lighting

Soft, comfortable lighting is ideal for meditation. Harsh lighting can become uncomfortable. You want your environment to be as inviting as possible.

Shoot for 10-20 Minutes

You don't have to try to sit down and meditate for an hour. Instead, try 10-20 minutes each day -- it's more than enough time to get the benefits!

Make it a Routine

Meditation is a great way to start your day; it's a good idea to get your meditation time in right after you wake up, that way you can cross it off your list right away.

If you catch yourself thinking, be easy on yourself! Simply become aware of your thoughts, then let them drift away on your stream of consciousness. Chiropractic care is a great companion with meditatoin to help build a healthy lifestyle.
