As you know, here at Shefford Osteopathic Clinic we are not just about clicking and crunching your back into place, but we look at the whole of you and your body, and that includes your lifestyle. Here are our top tips for taking care of you:
Love natural food
Put good food which is balanced and nutritious into your body.
Get enough sleep each night 6-8 hours. Sleep is crucial for strengthening memories.
Make sure you move every day – take a walk, stretch etc. Have a regular balanced exercise programme – cardio, strength and core, and flexibility.
Take time to rest, relax or have some quiet time each day. The benefits of meditation/prayer/thoughtfulness have been well researched.
Love fresh air and outdoors
Take fresh air every day. Studies show that being out in the countryside can cut recovery times from illness, fight against cancer and boost your mood.
Love friends and family
Research suggests people with strong social ties live longer than those who don’t.
Smile, laugh and have a positive mind.
