Not enough time in the day to stretch?

Have you ever been given exercises to help deal with an injury or prevent one from happening? The real question is, do you take the time to do those exercises? Do you feel like there’s not time in the day to do them?

One of our patients shared a photo of herself stretching while waiting for her flight at the airport. This was a nice reminder that we wanted to share with everyone, that you too can find a few minutes here and there to implement some movement in your day!

Here are some examples of times/places in your day that you may have not considered as a great place to stretch & move:

*waiting in line at the grocery store

*while enjoying a nice hot shower

*waiting for the bus/TTC

*waiting for your flight and/or if you’re in transit at the airport

*sitting in a meeting or in the classroom

Where are you squeezing in your movement during your day?

MOTION is LOTION!

How often do you SMILE?

Do you need to practice smiling more often? One of Dr. Lopes’ classmates, Dr. Adam Bletsoe created a guided meditation entitled “Smile Practice [with music]”.

“Embody the naturally creative and healing energy of an authentic smile. From whatever state you may be in we can use a deep remembering of the inborn sense of contentment and peace to create that in our lives right now. Grow and nurture that sense in every cell, tissue and organ of the body. Take it with you into your day to help you summit the situations and circumstances before you.”

Enjoy the benefits of SMILING!

We hope this brings a SMILE to your face!

What brings you JOY & HAPPINESS during the holiday season?

 As we kick off this holiday season @361clinic, we wonder what bring you joy & happiness during this season?
*Ice skating *Volunteering to help others in need. *Celebrating the deeper meaning of the holiday. *Taking a nap. *Smiling.
*Cracking a joke. *Getting a massage. *Playing in the snow.
@361clinic we enjoy having hearing the wood crackling, seeing the fire burning, along with holiday tunes in the background with our handy “fireplace”.🔥🔥🔥
They don’t necessarily have to be holiday-related, but they are things that “… help you let go of stress, nourish yourself, and bring out your best, so you can be a shining light during the holidays instead of a wretched wreck.”

.
Try to make a commitment to engage in one of those activities that bring you joy & happiness each day of the holiday season till January 1st.

Treat your body well with chiropractic, massage therapy and/or acupuncture.
 
Spots are booking up FAST! Please plan ahead and help your body feel it’s best to end of the year with a bang!
