At Enlighten Chiropractic, serving Lakeville, MN, and the nearby region, it’s not just your spinal health we care about; we care about all of you. And that means helping you achieve the optimal level of health. What better time to do it than this spring, when the weather is improving, the sun is out more, and the birds are singing?
Start Going for Walks
Getting outside and going for walks can help you in a number of ways. Therefore, if you aren’t an avid walker already, start getting out now.
For one, fresh air helps cleanse your lungs of toxins and harmful microbes. As you breathe in that fresh air, it’s passing through your lungs and helping remove the negatives that come from being indoors all winter long.
Secondly, sunshine is beneficial to your physical and mental well-being. The sun is responsible for vitamin D production. When those ultraviolet rays come in contact with the cholesterol in your skin, it gives you energy from vitamin D synthesis. That vitamin D reduces depression and strengthens your bones.
Last, walking gets your legs moving. You strengthen your muscles, which makes them less likely to sustain an injury. Plus, when you’re physically active, you work your cardiovascular system.
Get Outdoors More
As the weather is improving, you’re given ample opportunities to get outside. While we didn’t mention it above, just getting outside more can improve your mood, along with all the health benefits mentioned above.
It doesn’t matter whether you’re sitting in your lounge chair, working in your garden, playing with your children, or cleaning up your yard; it only matters that you’re out there.
Plant a Garden
March, April, and May are prime times to plant a variety of vegetables and herbs. By planting your own garden, you don’t have to worry about any harmful pesticides or herbicides being used during the growing process.
You also reap the reward of eating fresh vegetables during the summer.
Plus, you benefit from highly flavorful produce that you can use to prepare healthy dishes for the next few months.
Seek Chiropractic Care
Although we know we encouraged you to get out more, visiting a Lakeville chiropractor is one time when being inside can be to your advantage. Spring is an excellent time to do so because you can receive preventative care. You’ll be less likely to sustain an injury, no matter where your summer takes you.
We offer a range of treatments to ward off back pain and other musculoskeletal issues that can hinder your ability to enjoy this beautiful weather like you should.
Take a Break from Electronics
Phones, tablets, laptops, and other devices are a way of life nowadays, as you sit there reading web content right now. But they come with a downside — you often miss out on everything life has to offer when you spend your time searching the web and reading through your news feed. Not to mention, sometimes, reading online content and social media posts can lead to stress.
When you take a break from all of this, you can have less stress and focus more on making the most of your spring and summer with the people you love.
At Enlighten Chiropractic, our Lakeville chiropractor offers care to help you improve your mobility so you can get outside, visit amusement parks, camp, swim, or whatever warm-weather activities you enjoy. We can also help you manage your pain. Plus, when you take the initiative to make positive changes, you’ll have a better overall life, not just for one season
