November Wellness Tips

The holiday season is upon us. With it comes added stressors and the potential to get sick. Try these basic tips to balance your health and happiness during the holidays.

senior-dress-warmly-200x3001- Wear a scarf. So simple, every time you go outside grab a scarf and wear it. Keeping the back of the neck covered make all the difference in avoiding a cold.

SnowDeer2-Observe nature. With the sun setting earlier our energy level tends to be lower. We need to allow ourselves to hibernate and rest during this time of year. Build in a buffer zone of time to accomplish tasks and listen to your body–take it slow. When we feel restless or unsure, we can mimic nature…Mother Nature will always lead the way.

busy-calendar-help-orig23- Just say NO! Requests will be coming in for our time this holiday season. When we say “yes” to everything, our time becomes stretched thin and our enjoyment decreases. Saying “no” to just a few extra commitments protects us from holiday burnout, resentment, and fatigue.

Should you find yourself sick, stressed, or saying “yes” to everything, we’ve still got your back (and your headache, knee pain, and sleep trouble), so come in for a treatment and we’ll help you find your “reset” button. Schedule now!

Be Well,

What I’m Thankful For

I’d like to take a moment and share what I’m thankful for these days.

– My beautiful wife and family. Watching my boys grow and explore with each day.

– The healing space and community that exists at MCA. I feel blessed and honored to be part of the lives of my patients.

– The Kansas City Royals for making it to the playoffs and the World Series this year!

– My Dad, who is here from Kansas to join us for Thanksgiving. Our time together may be short but each moment is so precious.

– Pumpkin pie, how i love scrumptious pumpkin pie. FYI- it is great for breakfast, lunch or dinner. 🙂

I’d love to hear what you’re most thankful for, or how you’re spending your Thanksgiving holiday. Drop us a line on Facebook.
