Formerly Shea Family Chiropractic

Over the last three months, I have noticed a recurring theme in the mindset of many of the patients of Aligned Life Chiropractic and Wellness.  I have also noticed this same mindset in myself lately.  This theme, I believe, stems from a lack of understanding of who we really are as human beings.  An inability to look inward and recognize our own brilliance.  I believe it also comes from a lack of maintaining a long term focus and instead, getting caught up in the short term details.  The theme I am speaking of is not loving yourself during a time period in which you are struggling physically or emotionally. As someone who regularly comes in direct contact with people who have either recently been injured or who are dealing with a chronic problem, I see the mental and physical challenge of keeping a positive outlook about ourselves.  For myself, I have identified that when I am injured, I will commonly resent my body. I will feel as if my body is letting me down and that it is inhibiting me from being my best.  Due to these negative feelings, I also notice that my emotional health suffers too.  I am writing this not to sound like a complainer, but to let you know that if you have similar feelings that these are common emotions. That being said, what can we do when our bodies are not running in pristine condition (or even average condition)?  The first step in eliminating this downward cycle is recognizing that we as human beings are not just our bodies.  We are blessed to have many different pieces of ourselves, all of which are capable of giving us joy.  What I mean by this is if your physical body is weakened, then it may be a time period to use your mind to bring you joy.  For example, it may be a perfect opportunity for internal reflection, for preparing for your future by setting goals, by getting clear on what you can do for other people and for using your mind to bring you happiness.  It may also be the perfect time to focus on getting back to basics with your nutrition, your journaling, your stretching routine, your date nights with your spouse or any other non-physical action that breeds the feeling of progress. Secondly, I recommend changing the story in your head that is trying to have you focus
