Our Stoke Chiropractor Is Here To Help You Create A Healthy New Year Plan

The Christmas and New Year period is an exciting time of year, as you get a chance to catch up with friends and family. Most people will also spend the holiday break reflecting on the year that has passed and thinking about what will happen in the year to come.

It is a fantastic time to set goals for the future, including goals relating to your personal health. However, to achieve these goals you really need a New Year plan.

In this post, our Stoke chiropractor is going to share some tips for creating a plan that will result in a healthier you in the year to come. These tips will help you achieve any health and fitness goals you decide to set.

If you want to learn more about setting a healthy new year plan, why not book a visit with our experienced and leading chiropractor in Stoke on Trent at Newcastle Chiropractic Clinic by calling 01782 711 191 or you can book only here.

Our Stoke Chiropractor Offers This Advice For Setting New Goals For The New Year

The team at Newcastle Chiropractic Clinic enjoy helping patients reach important health and fitness goals like:

  • Eating healthier
  • Exercising regularly
  • Reducing stress levels

We focus on these three goals as they can deliver the most significant health improvements for our patients. They can also provide you with additional energy and inspiration necessary to take on tougher challenges.

The best approach to tackling these goals is to start small and work your way up. For example, to achieve the goal of exercising regularly, begin by walking 10 or 15 minutes per day. This is much more achievable than signing up with a gym for hours of classes each week at great personal expense.

In terms of healthy eating, you could begin by adding a little more fruit to your daily intake or an extra serving of vegetables at dinner. Once you have gained some momentum, you could work with our Stoke chiro on a more comprehensive healthy eating plan.

Regardless of the New Year’s resolutions that you are setting, remember to start small and focus on gradual improvement.

As you work through your health and fitness goals, you should continue seeing our Chiropractor in Stoke on Trent. They will be able to perform adjustments which reduce tension in your muscles and joints. This may help to make it easier to continue exercising and reduce any stress in your body.

Our chiropractor will also be able to provide you with general advice on diet, exercise, stress reduction, and finding additional motivation.

 

Dealing With Holiday Fatigue

Christmas is an enjoyable time of year, but it can be very tiring. Tasks like preparing your home for visitors, shopping for presents, and preparing meals all require a ton of energy.

Aside from that, you may have a few late evenings over the Christmas period, as you overindulge on food and alcohol. While socialising with friends and family in this way is a lot of fun, it can be physically and mentally exhausting.

When Christmas is over, you may find yourself feeling fatigued and carrying a few extra pounds from the delicious food and drinks you have enjoyed.

The New Year brings an opportunity to get back on track. It’s the perfect time to commit to losing a few pounds, get more energy, and be healthier. The best way to achieve these goals is by focusing on nutrition. Here are a few simple tactics to help you get started:

  • Decrease processed food intake
  • Eat more fresh foods including fruits, vegetables, nuts, and lean meats (salmon and other fatty fish, skinless chicken, steak without the fat)
  • Eat carbohydrates earlier in the day for additional energy and reduce carbohydrate intake in the evening. Evening meals should focus on vegetables and protein.
  • Snack on nuts, blueberries, strawberries, sun dried tomatoes and other health foods

Following these four simple tips can have a dramatic impact on your health and energy levels. For more nutrition tips, why not book a visit with our Chiropractor at Newcastle Chiropractic Clinic.

 

New Year Less Stress

Everyone suffers from stress to a certain extent. In fact, about 54% are actually stressed about the level of stress they have!

Although most people come to accept stress as being a ‘normal’ part of life, it is important to be mindful of the risk it poses and take steps to reduce it.

Stress can increase the risk of several serious illnesses, including heart diseases, depression, and diabetes. It can also cause various musculoskeletal and neurological problems including headaches, back pain, neck pain, and muscular tension.

Fortunately, there are several effective strategies you can use to reduce your stress levels:

  • Exercise more often
    The human body is designed to move. When it does not have that opportunity, it can contribute to feelings of stress. Even a 10 minute walk can make a difference.
  • Visit a chiropractor in Stoke on Trent
    Have an examination performed by a Stoke chiro to determine if there are any restrictions in your spine, which can cause stress in your body. A restriction prevents the spine from moving freely, which can cause pain, decrease energy levels, and make you feel stressed.
  • Try relaxation techniques
    Many people find relaxation techniques like mindfulness meditation, yoga, aromatherapy, massage, breath focus, and guided imagery to be very effective at relieving stress. This website has more information on some of the best relaxation techniques for stress relief. 

It is estimated that between 80 to 90% of illnesses can be traced back to having too much stress in your life, so it’s important to take action as soon as possible.

After being diagnosed with BPPV Vertigo I was really suffering and after not really making any progress with the Betahistine prescribed by the Doctor at the Royal Stoke I decided to see Dr Finn, who has previously resolved other muscular and skeletal injuries for myself and my family. With BPPV Vertigo being an issue with the inner ear I wasn’t sure if this was something he could resolve promptly ? The clinic fitted me in really quickly and after just two short visits my BPPV was fully resolved. After spending so much time on 111 and at the hospital I was relieved at how swiftly and efficiently Dr Finn resolved my BPPV, which was really bad. I can fully recommend this clinic for this and other treatments in a professional and effective manner. 10/10

My wife was suddenly in real pain around her hip area and upon making a phone call to Newcastle Chiropractic was given an immediate appointment. With a total of no more than 20 minutes she was feeling a lot less pain and doing gentle walking as recommended by Rob. She’s very grateful with a lot less pain and feeling mobile again.

I first started seeing Rob in 1998 when he took over from Jane Hvas at the Brampton Clinic. I have now been a patient of Robs for 25 years. I don't know what I would have done without the treatment and support I have re eived from him. He's simply the best.

Dott. Burcu Cetinkaya is the best chiropractor I've ever been treated by, and I've had many. Since the first visit at the clinic I've been examinated and listened very carefully about my problems and I've been given a personalised plan of treatment and exercises straight away. I've been checked vertebra by vertebra and rettified my posture, basically if there is a problem she will find out and I've never been so happy with my back, my problems they're gone and my posture is the best ever. I can't thank dott. Burcu enough even if an emergency occurred she has been always available and makes me feel safe.
Not the last the ladies on reception are the kindest ever. The clinic service is a 5 star ???? all round. Thank you ???? ???? ????????
