Practice the tough stuff

Some of the things I do not like to do are working on  things I’m not very good at. Confrontational skills need work.   I am not good at fixing cars, putting toys together, fixing things around the house,  and keeping things organized.  We all have things we are good or not so good at.  Let us take a look at what a little discipline regarding lifestyle can look like.

Is losing weight hard?  Is working out hard?  Is sticking to your Chiropractic care plan hard?  It is if you think it is.  You may have challenges sometimes but making time for a workout daily has got to be a priority you don;t mess with.  Your care plan with me or who ever is something that your health must be a priority for you if you want to be your best.  Working on communication in your relationships in life takes work, it sometimes just doesn;t magically happen.  Coming up with money for the important things in life can be challenging but we come up with the money for things we truly value.  That’s the question you have to answer yourself.  What really is important to you?  Now how can you create a life that supports your lifestyle.  I’m not talking about materialistic things but the things that truly matter to you like family and your health.  It’s easy  for me to write these things and much harder to practice but I’m doing my best to be a better listener, be a better Chiropractor, be a better father, be a better health coach for you.

If you are inspired to work at your health and not merely just feel better then these blog posts probably resoante with you.  I sincerely hope you take one action step each week from these and move forward with them.  We live life somewhere between all the highs and lows of life and that’s where we learn about ourself.  For me it’s about sticking to a daily routine, being disciplined in eating, moving, and thinking better when I don;t want to, and listen more and talk less.  The last one is always my most challenging. 

OK, raced last weekend at Balsam Branch and that was a tough one but a lot of fun.  Only one more month until the Birkie.  Until next time, practice the not so easy things and let me know how your experience is.  Dr. E

  • Getting fit as a fiddle during the winter months.

    I had minus 16 degrees this morning and I was glad I wasn't a kid waiting for the bus to come pick me up.  I certaintly have never been a huge fan of the cold winter days.  The good news of days like today is the sun is bright and this always brings me optimism that there will be more warm days to
  • Solutions for why you are tired all the time

    One of the most common symptoms I hear daily from patients is a lack of energy. There are many different reasons that people are tired.  If it's chronic, then you really have to look at the underlying cause of the problem. One of the most common one is poor sleep at night.  There are many un
  • Not being able to do what you want to do is no darn fun.

    I hope all of you had an incredible 4th of July weekend.  It sure was a busy one for me.  It started early friday morning with the Siren 5 k run.  I did a 19:40 which was pretty good.  That's 3 sub 20 minute 5k's this year.  Interesting how I wasn't running that fast 5 years ago.  The only thi
  • Creating Energy First Thing In The Morning

    One of my favorite things I do to create energy in my life is to get up early and get a workout in. There is nothing better than on a hot humid July day like today to see the sun coming up and energize your spirit. I know that most people are still sleeping or just getting up and I'm outside g
  • Are you ready for some football?

    Tonight is the night when people in Wisconsin really go nuts over their Green Bay Packers. I was driving back from my first rollerski of the year and saw this blown up packer mascot in someone's driveway. It's interesting how close we are to the Twin Cities but I'd say it's 70% Packer fans to 30%
