Don’t settle, son.

Little_league_baseball_buntI was drafted to the All-star Baseball team year after year for my defensive play. However, it was a few years into my baseball years when my dad thought I needed to be “straightened up”. I had gotten lazy, I became content with not being a great batter. My batting skills were absolutely terrible. “Who cares”, I thought. After all, I was making the All-star team without need of hitting the ball. It was then that dad said these 2 words that I think about to this day, “Don’t settle, son.”

Today, I have been thinking about these words with my patients often. Unfortunately, many people sell themselves way too short. So, here is my recommendation if you have found yourself settling:

1- Don’t settle for a life lived at any less than 100%. You are the only one that knows if you are holding anything back.

2- Don’t settle for a CoreScore less than a 90. Your nerve-system can be measured. If it is measuring poorly, get back on track with your chiropractic care.

3- Don’t settle for a level of health that holds you back from enjoying time with your kids. I have never felt like it was a bad decision to play with my son. Get your health where it needs to be to make this a reality every time.

4- Don’t settle for a smaller dream. Your dream is your dream. It is yours for a reason, make it happen or you will find a hole in your life that can not be filled with inaction.

Make it a great week, and comment to let me know what you plan to not settle on!


Time keeps on tickin

There is something to be said about timing:

Time taken, time wasted.

Time used, time free.

Time tested, testing your time.

I have heard it referenced to “being in the zone”. That is when timing seems to be right on. The light turns green just in time. Just then you arrive at the meeting just in time to get to your seat, order a coffee, and voila: your date arrives.

Then there is terrible timing. Like the time you get to the intersection. Your distracted too much to make a quick enough stop, so you opt for the speed up. Just then you notice that the lights flash from the camera, and you feel like a movie star, without the glam.

With all this talk about time, when is the right time to take care of your health?

Do you wait for symptoms to show, before you practice good, healthy habits?

Do you keep your nerve system healthy with regular chiropractic check-ups?

We have people that come to our office because of pain, and we have people that seek our care because they want to be healthy. Which one do you think leads a happier, healthier life?

Time to schedule an appointment?
