Face Mask driving you CRAZY?????

Image
Face Masks are becoming a new normal.  More and more people are choosing (or have to) wear them and many stores are requiring customers wear them.  

I am also seeing people touch their face masks, trying to pull it down out of their eyes.  
If you keep touching your face mask, then anything on your fingertips will be transferred to the mask.  
Here is a quick tip to keep your mask out of your eyes so you don't need to touch it!

Happy Earth Day

Happy Earth Day!

2020 is the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day and it's falling in the middle of some unusual times--where states and countries are on lockdown, where travel is restricted, and an unprecedented number of people are working from home.  With this we are witnessing first hand how changing our behaviors can have a profound impact on the Earth in a very short amount of time.

This doesn't just hold true for the Earth, but for our bodies as well.   What we eat, drink, consume, put on our skin--these things all impact our bodies.  Drinking out of plastic can affect our hormones.  Eating poor quality, sugar filled food impact not just our weight but also HOW our bodies function. 

On this Earth Day, I encourage you to look at your habits.  Consider ways that you can change your lifestyle to protect Mother Earth.  Recycle, Compost, Use reusable containers and bags, reduce your carbon foot print...  We only have 1 Earth...

We also have only 1 body.  Again, look at your habits…

How's the Ergonomics in your Home Workplace?

Life as we know it has changed a lot in the last few weeks. As I saw on a Facebook meme, it’s like we changed the clocks and entered the Twilight Zone.  I wanted to reach out, check in, and provide everyone with some important information while we all navigate this new reality. In the coming weeks look for information from Care More Chiropractic that is now more relevant than ever.
Home Ergonomics Due to the recent climate, most people have been asked to work from home for the foreseeable future.  While this comes with a myriad of challenges (home schooling , managing working in the same space as your spouse, trying not to go stir crazy), we don’t want your ergonomics to be one of them!  Setting up or finding a comfortable space to work at home can be difficult, so we have some simple tips for you!
Dr. Kristen says: “If You Have a Home Office”… Lucky you!  You actually have a space to set up and spread out to get some quality work done!  Here are a few ergonomic tips to make sure your wor…

How Clean Is Your PHONE?????

In the current climate we are washing our hands and cleaning surfaces more than ever.I know that the door knobs in my house have never been cleaner!But there is one item that is often overlooked, that never leaves our side, that touches everything our hands touch, our smartphones.Perhaps you saw my FaceBook live?  If you didn’t you can find it on our Facebook page or here:  .  You can also find it in our new private Facebook group, Care More Chiro Community.

Did you know that according to a 2011 study done by researchers at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Med, fecal matter is found on 1 out of every 6 smartphones?Other studies have found serious pathogens such as Strepococcus, MRSA– which is a type of bacteria that is resistant to several antibiotics – and even E. coli on smartphones.
To put this in another perspective, research shows that a public bathroom toilet seat is cleaner than most phones…. Ewwwwwww…….Grosssssss…….
On average, Americans ch…

Mindset: The Missing Magic

We have set our goals, now what?What can we do to make sure we are successful?It’s been my experience that there is one thing that can make or break our goals:Mindset. When I think of mindset and goals, the first thing that comes to mind is the quote, “wether you think you can or you think you can’t, you’re probably right.” 
Mindset, belief, faith—call it what you will but it is, what I like to call, the missing magic in goal setting,  
There are also little things that we can do and say that have a huge impact on mindset.  First is the power of our words.  As Yoda says, “Do or do not, there is no try.”  Think about it, when you make a commitment to someone which is the one you’re actually going to do, the one when you say, “I will try and be there”. Or “I will be there.”  The second of course!  When we say try, we are building in an excuse for failure, for not making it happen. 
This parlays beautifully into our goals.  What words are you using when describing your goals?  When you thi…
