San Jose Exercises Benefit Makes it a Good Resolution for All

New Year. New Resolutions. A good one is to exercise more. Exercise benefits young and old alike, increasing cognition, health, sleep quality, etc.. Chiropractic Solutions has confidence that including San Jose exercise to your way of life is a positive behavior that ultimately enhances your life. Let’s get moving!


Culture can be encouraging of physical activity…or not. Researchers evaluated a variety of motivators for physical activity and exercise. Since being physically active is a result of self-determination, they described the mix of autonomy, competence, ego, task, and relatedness of these in the motivation to exercise. American subjects were more autonomous, task oriented, and physically active than Turkish subjects telling researchers and ultimately us clinicians to adapt exercise to the patient and his/her interests. (1) Share with Chiropractic Solutions what motivates you! Simple? Fast? At-home? Out of the house? Maybe some mindfulness? To enhance the exercise effort, inserting mindfulness appears promising. Researchers found though that many have misconceptions or no concept of what mindfulness is or how it is beneficial to mental and overall health. One study looked at the effectiveness of physical activity and mindfulness activities in averting mental health issues and concluded that it held promise. (2) Chiropractic Solutions appreciates those types of benefits!


A pill maybe?! None of us would confess to wanting a pill to be physically fit…or would we? Of course not! As the pharmacological world looks for drugs to enhance cognitive function in the aging folks, researchers have also described nutrition, diet, probiotics, cognitive training, and physical activity, exercise, even Latin, ballroom, and aerobic dancing as being useful. (3) Important motivators can be healthy lifestyle behaviors mixed with chiropractic care. Treating and easing chronic pain – associated with decreased brain gray matter and impaired cognitive function - was found to restore normal brain function. (4) That is what Chiropractic Solutions does: treat chronic pain with chiropractic care incorporating spinal manipulation.


Curious researchers tackled the question of older adults’ goals, motivations, and self-determination motivators to lead a healthy lifestyle and participate in things to support that lifestyle like exercising and eating well. Factors like personality and goal-setting habits were proposed as influencers. (5) Even in kids, researchers saw that behaviors like breakfast eating, exercise, and sleep patterns influenced their healthy lifestyle. Not eating breakfast in the morning – 11% of kids in a recent study did this – was associated with sleep duration, bedtime, and physical activity. 9.5% of kids said they experienced poor sleep. 24.9% slept less than the suggested 9 hours. Girls were less physically active. Bad news: Such less-than-healthy habits worsened children’s hand-eye coordination and attention. Good] news: Better sleep quality improved reaction time in a visual attention test. (6) Chiropractic Solutions is here to help you make better choices, temper expectations, and make beneficial healthy lifestyle goals.
