Visiting chiropractors in St. Charles, MO, is a great way to improve the wellbeing of your body. Another crucial step to improving your health right away is to GET MOVING. This doesn’t mean spending hours at the gym each day—I’m talking about moving your body, which means something different to everyone. You could dance, walk, jog, practice yoga, play sports, take a class, or play with your kids. We talk to people every day who never make the time to move. They may be in pain, extremely fatigued, or busy, but let me tell you, if we don’t make the time for consistent movement in our life, we will never do it. There will always be “more important” things unless we prioritize our health and make time to MOVE. Our bodies were literally made to move. Early men and women toiled outside most of the day gathering food, hunting, and fishing. We moved all day long, and our bodies loved us for it. In our modern world today, we spend most of our day sitting. We wake up and sit down for breakfast, we sit in the car on the way to work, we sit at work all day, we sit in the car to drive home, and we sit down in front of the TV at night before retiring for bed. This type of lifestyle contributes to severe health issues, including increased pain and joint problems, cardiovascular issues, cancer, diabetes, and many other chronic health issues. If you are currently not exercising, start by doing some consistent movement for five minutes daily. It doesn’t matter what it is—it could even be marching in place! The goal is to build a healthy, manageable movement plan each day. I personally try to start my day with fifteen minutes of yoga and stretching, although somedays it’s only a few minutes (depending on how early my kids get up). Other days, my routine is longer, but the goal is to aim for some movement each day. Increasing your movement will greatly benefit your body, mind, and soul. Increased movement will decrease pain and joint discomfort, improve mood and mental outlook, decrease your risk for cardiovascular issues, improve digestion, regulate hormones, and aid in the transport of nutrients into your cells. A little bit of movement goes a long way, so start today! To start moving towards implementing a few minutes of gentle movement into your day.
