We all start the new year with the best intentions. The idea of a fresh start is so appealing, most of us make at least one resolution or goal. But by February, 80 percent of us have unused gym memberships, a drawer full of sugary treats and a whole lot of disappointment. Fortunately, Sandstone offers the support you need to help you achieve the three most common new year’s resolutions – get in shape, lose weight and spend more quality time with family and friends.
Get in Shape
The secret to having a strong, healthy body isn’t really a secret. There is no magic pill or quick fix formula that takes the place of good old-fashioned hard work. Still, knowing where to start is one of the most confusing parts of the process of “getting in shape”. That is where an annual wellness exam comes in. Understanding your body’s current condition can prevent injuries and health issues as you begin an exercise program. It can also help you identify the types of exercise that will be most beneficial for your age, physical condition and body type. Best of all, Sandstone offers comprehensive wellness exams that pair beautifully with other services like rehabilitation and chiropractic care that helps you fully recover after “overdoing it” at the gym.
If we want a magic formula to help us be in the same shape we were in when we were in our 20’s, we would kill for a pill, shake or diet that will help us lose weight in a hurry. Even if you are one of the types that can lose weight quickly by simply modifying your diet, statistically speaking you are also more likely to regain the weight you lost and then some. The good news is that recent studies have shown that those who lose weight and keep it off for years have a few things in common. They eat breakfast every day, they exercise every day and they made permanent modifications to their eating habits.
We can almost hear you say, “But wait! Which diet should I follow? Low carb? Low fat? Paleo? Vegan?”
The answer? There is no one perfect diet plan for everyone. Instead, our specialists design each 90 or 180-day weight loss plan for each individual that walks through our doors. Focusing on lifestyle changes that serve you for the rest of your life, our plans rely on sound nutritional principles and moderate exercise to help you reach your weight loss goals.
Spend More Time with Family and Friends
We know what you’re thinking, “How can Sandstone help me find more hours in the day?” We can’t. But we can help you improve the quality of the time you spend with your loved ones. We offer stem cell injections that help heal painful injuries, hormone replacement therapy to restore your energy levels, spinal decompression to relieve back and neck pain, and chiropractic care to keep your body functioning the way it should. We may not be able to add time to your life, but we can add life to your time.
Keeping your new year’s resolutions is easier with a partner that can help you achieve your goals. Give us a call today or schedule your comprehensive exam with x-rays online and find out how we can help you be successful this year!
