Finish off this month strong! Reward Yourself...

Reward yourself!

Celebrate your success by treating yourself to something you enjoy that doesn’t contradict your resolution. For example, if you have been sticking to your promise to eat better reward yourself with a new outfit or going to a movie with a friend.

Track Your Progress

One of the most important parts is to see the hard work you have put in.

Make sure to Track Your Progress!

Short term goals are easier to keep and each small accomplishment will help keep you motivated. Keep track of each small success. Obsessing over the occasional slip won’t help you reach your goal. Do the best you can each day and take it one day at a time.

Weight Loss

If your 2015 goal was to lose weight then this tip is for you.

Weight Loss

Make realistic goals for weight loss. Instead of saying, “I’m going to lose 20 pounds this year”, work at losing 1-2 pounds a week until you meet your goal. Increasing water intake, watching portion sizes, and snacking on fruits and veggies throughout the day is a good start.

Getting Back Into The Gym

For some, the last time they worked out was before the holiday grind, others a few months, and for some it’s been years. When beginning to work out for the first time or restarting a routine, don’t push yourself to start at the same intensity that you worked out at in the past. Easing into a new program will help prevent injury. Picking an activity that you enjoy, or having a workout buddy can also help keep you motivated and prevent burnout.

Create Goals For Success

Tip #3: Make Goals
Setting goals helps measure progress. If you don’t know where you want to end up, you won’t really know how to get there. When making goals, aim to make SMART goals:
Specific
Measureable
Attainable
Realistic
Timely

We Treat More Than Just Backs


Chiropractic Resolutions for a Healthy, Pain-Free Year

Start the new year off right by committing to a healthier lifestyle.  A few simple and practical lifestyle changes can make a positive impact on your health and can also prevent you from experiencing a painful injury in the year ahead, according to the American Chiropractic Association (ACA).   The ACA and your Doctors at GBC urge you to adopt the following New Year’s resolutions for a healthier 2015.

1. I will limit my intake of caffeinated coffee, sodas and teas.  The caffeine in these drinks can cause dehydration and can rob the body of essential nutrients.  Stick to water, natural juices and other decaffeinated beverages. 
2. I will avoid over medicating myself and my family.  Many over-the-counter and prescription medications have unknown side effects.  Discuss alternative remedies with a doctor of chiropractic. 
3. I will not carry a heavy purse or briefcase with its strap over my shoulder, unless I place the strap over my head on the side opposite the bag.  Wearing a shoulder strap over one shoulder unevenly places the weight of the bag on one side of the body, potentially causing shoulder and back pain. 
4. I will not allow my children to carry backpacks that weigh more than 10 percent of their body weight.  Beyond that weight, the backpack can cause the wearer to bend forward in an attempt to support the weight on his or her back, instead of the shoulders. 
5. I will not lift heavy objects over my head.  These types of movements can strain muscles and affect nerves, causing severe neck, shoulder and arm problems.
6. I will not turn my torso while lifting relatively heavy objects.  This rotates the spine and can bring on a “back attack.”
7. I will avoid the habit of consistently crossing the same knee over the other.  Such a habit can also eventually cause misalignment of the spine. 
8. I will try to keep moving while I'm at work.  If sedentary for the majority of the work day, it is very important to take periodic stretch breaks.  Get up from the desk and take a brief walk,and stretch arms and legs as frequently as possible to avoid postural and spinal stress. 
9. I will, when using a shovel — in winter or summer — remember to push rather than lift,whenever possible
10. I will use luggage with wheels whenever possible.  Carrying, lifting and moving a heavy suitcase can ruin a vacation.

Change Is A Process

Start off your week with our first tip for the month:
Tip #1: Change Is A Process 
Those unhealthy habits you are trying eagerly to change probably took years to develop, so we are not going to expect to change all of them in just a matter of days or weeks. It may take longer to achieve your goals, but remember this is not a race to the finish. Once you make the commitment to change a behavior it’s something you will continue to work on for the rest of your life.
