Like any type of complicated system, your body requires regular maintenance to perform at its best. While bodily performance means different things for different people, most would agree that they appreciate having the physical and mental energy to cope with all of life’s demands.
So we put together a list of five things you can do each month to keep your body as healthy as possible, including getting a massage in Salt Lake City.
Visit the Chiropractor
Anyone can benefit from a chiropractic adjustment, but it’s especially useful for those who sit all day at an office job. A chiropractor can often find and correct potential issues before they become more pronounced and you need to go on medication to manage them. Improper alignment of the spinal cord is just one example. While getting a Zen Massage in Salt Lake City and chiropractic care have some similarities, such as both being alternative practices, practitioners receive very different training to prepare for their careers.
Shop Ahead & Meal Prep
Consider challenging yourself to start a new habit if you eat out frequently. For example, you could try shopping for groceries and then preparing meals for a week at a time. This means you will have fresh food available when it comes time to decide what’s for dinner instead of choosing to go out to eat because meal preparation will take too long.
At the end of the first week, stop to consider how you feel having consumed home-cooked rather than restaurant meals. You will have taken in fewer calories, grease, and fat, something that your body is sure to notice. Hopefully, this will inspire you to prepare for a week’s worth of meals more often.
Change Your Workout Routine
If you already workout regularly, consider implementing a major change once a month to see if it makes a difference. Instead of going to spin class at the local workout club, for example, try signing up for dance lessons instead. Swap yoga for swimming laps in the pool. Even if you don’t notice a difference in how you feel, it will help keep you committed to working out because you didn’t allow yourself to become bored with the same routines.
Challenge Yourself to Slow Up on Caffeine and Drink Water Instead
Many Americans find they can’t remain productive throughout the day without the caffeine jolt they receive from soda or coffee. Unfortunately, these habits can quickly become addictive and cause problems such as headaches, nervousness, and irritability. At least one day each month, make it a point to reach for water when you would normally consume a caffeinated beverage. The goal is to stretch the habit into as many consecutive days as possible and then try it again next month if necessary.
