Just like nature around you, your body and mind are also recovering from a long, harsh winter. At Family Chiropractic & Wellness, we’ve noticed that people often become very lazy and let themselves go during the winter season. Here’s what you can do to get healthy and stay healthy during the spring season.

1 – Spend Time Outdoors

Spring is a season where you can explore and experience nature at its best. The climate is comfortable and welcoming. So instead of being cooped up in your home and office, take a break occasionally and explore nearby parks and greenery; it will elevate your mood and motivate you to become active.

2 – Exercise Wisely

If you’ve let yourself go during the winter, it’s not a good idea to just jump into your regular workout routine. Start off slowly and let your body get accustomed to high levels of activity. It’s absolutely essential to stretch and warm-up before you start vigorous exercises. This will ensure that your body is loose and ready for the activity and strain. If you don’t do this, you might end up hurting yourself. You can consult with your chiropractor about the right springtime exercise and diet routine.

3 – Wear Proper Gear

It’s tempting to wear lighter clothes and casual sandals and slippers during spring. You want to let your body breathe and feel free. However, this can have an adverse effect on your health. That’s especially true for your footwear. You want your feet to still be supported and sandals and slippers won’t provide that essential support.

4 – Cleaning and Gardening

Both cleaning and gardening are quintessential springtime chores and they can be physically demanding. It’s a good idea to stretch and become comfortable before engaging in them.
