Christmas is a busy time of year with many extra things to do, extra demands on your time. Your body comes under extra stress and pressure. People feel loss more at this time of year and getting an extended family together can be an occasion for anxiety and friction. As families splinter in pursuit of travel, education and career, the opportunities for families to get together regularly are, on average, dwindling and the pressure to enjoy each other’s company on the rare occasions when families do re-unite, can cause extra stress.
We have discussed what happens to the body during times of stress – it affects the nervous system. The nervous system is responsible for coordinating every cell, tissue, muscle, gland, organ and system in the entire body. Who cares for the nervous system?? Your Chiropractor does! Make sure you don’t neglect your spinal adjustments at this time of year – it will help you to have a Happy, Healthy Christmas and New Year – but please use the front door – not the chimney!!
