Worry much? The easy solution would be to simply tell you to stop worrying and focus on living. More often than not this is easier said than done. What we “need” more than ever is healthy people to adapt and overcome the external stressors (media, politics, etc) in life that produce worry. In other words, learn to train your body to do good.
In order to prevent the chemical overload of emotional stress on the body, we need to implement strategies to promote our HEALTH and well-being. We all know diet and exercise are vastly important. However, many don’t realize the importance of maintaining spinal alignment to enhance and better their health. It just so happens that our emotions can create the realities in our brains and visa versa. The highway of communication for these interactions takes place via the central nerve system (CNS) which is protected via the spinal bones.
Chiropractic offers health care that is noninvasive and non-addicting. It allows proper connection between the brain and body to enhance your health and create adaptive positive changes on a continual second to second basis because our external stressors are always changing.
We need to start implementing ADAPTIVE behaviors in our lives. Obviously this begins with first and foremost taking care of one’s health and addressing the CNS, the master control system in charge of not only regulating the immune system, but also any thoughts and behaviors that lead to positive actions.
It’s called positive plasticity. The more you recruit your CNS to do something positive, it is rewarding to every tissue cell in your body. Learn to smile more, ride a bike, type, learn a musical instrument, eat your favorite food. The body rewards positive behavior.
The opposite of positive plasticity is maladaptive plasticity. The body can learn to be in a constant state of survival (fight or flight.) We can learn to dysfunction just like we can learn to ride a bike. We see that things like negative self-talk, bad habits and poor sleep can begin to add up and manifest into so much more. A good analogy is an ice-berg. You will always see the tip of the ice-berg and what it creates, when the real danger is hidden from view.
