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…

5 Tips to Successful Resolutions

It’s that time of year—the holidays have come and gone, and people have set their sights on the future.It’s that time when people start to focus on their New Years Resolutions.Studies show that just 8% of people actually accomplish their New Year’s Resolution.If you’re anything like me, you have a long list of failed New Years Resolutions that have fallen by the wayside.Make 2020 the year that changes!Here are the 5 tips to make this year different. Set SMART Goals  A SMART goal is based on an acronym:  Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistc, and Timeframe.  A goal made with these components in mind is a key component to being successful, however this isn’t the only thing.  It takes more than setting a SMART goal to be successful.   2.Be Committed Often people say they want to accomplish something, but when the rubber meets the road, they aren’t willing to do what it takes to make it happen.  If you aren’t committed to your goals, if you aren’t willing to give them 100% then you’re …

Wear it Right!

Kids will be kids and the power to “Look Cool” is staggering.  You know the look:  Hair over 1 eye, backpack on one shoulder, hip out to the opposite side, and of course the untied sneakers.  Yikes!  Where to begin???
No matter how young or old your child is, if you explain the why they are more willing to comply….  Well, at least you MAY stand a chance of getting them to comply! 
Wear it Right Use both shoulder straps at the time time and adjust them so the pack fits snugly to the body  Be sure it does not dangle loosely to the side.  You should be able to slide your hand between the backpack and your child’s back.  Positioning correctly will reduce the strain on your child’s back shoulders, and neck.  Using the hip strap or waist belt reduces the strain on your back and transfers some of the load to your hips and pelvis.  A backpack that is too low will cause you to lean forward and carry the full weight on the upper back.  
Injuries resulting from improper lifting and carrying a heavy…

Packing Light...

The “wrong” backpack, packing it improperly, or even carrying it “wrong” can lead to poor posture, rounded shoulders, or forward head carriage.  It may also contribute to scoliosis as well as a myriad of symptoms ranging from neck and shoulder pain, headaches, to numbness in the hands and arms.  These issues can lead to improper weight bearing, restricted motion in one direction, and poor balance & coordination.  
Carrying a backpack that’s too heavy can cause injury, subluxations and may lead to permanent chronic problems.  Care More Chiropractic recommends regular chiropractic check-ups for kids of all ages to detect ad correct existing problems, as well as to prevent possible future issues.  
The doctors at Care More Chiropractic also recommend parents watch for signs of potential problems.  In particular parents should watch for the head tilting to one side, uneven shoulder, forward head carriage, rounded shoulders, poor fitting clothes (clothes that just don't hang right or…

Care More's Tips For Choosing the Right Backpack

Hi parents! It's back to school time! While some of you are celebrating & throwing a 'Yea, finally!' party some of you may be missing the kids & feeling the tug on the heartstrings, and they haven't even started school yet... (in Roswell that is!)  
No matter how you're reacting to the end of summer and start of school, in most homes it means it's time to hit the stores for some Back to School shopping.  Regardless of the age of your kids (this holds true for those headed off to High School and College) buying a new backpack is probably on the list. While most race over and pick a backpack based on color and brand, with little thought to the importance of choosing the 'right' backpack. 
The 'wrong' backpack can lead to poor posture with rounded shoulders or forward head carriage, scoliosis, & a myriad of symptoms ranging from neck & shoulder pain, headaches, to numbness in the hands or arms. These issues can then lead to improper we…

Today Lexi turned 6 months!!!!



OMG where has the time gone...  It seems like just yesterday (last Mother's Day) I was announcing my pregnancy...  And here it is just over a year later and Lexi is turning 6 months! 
I want to take a minute and thank everyone of you for all of your support over the last year.  Your patience as I was moving a little slower at 9 months pregnant.  Your congratulations after her birth.  Her understanding as she cut her first (and second) tooth.  And most importantly the love you share every time you see her.  
I am so very blessed!  Not only do I have an amazing husband who is extremely supportive, BUT and amazing "chiropractic family."  You, my patients, have made this transition to "mommy" and now "working mommy" so much easier.  I count myself lucky that she gets to come to work with me! 
And, so you know, there is something in it for you!  Research shows that looking into a babies eyes causes a vagal reaction.  It affe…
