3,000 steps a day can keep your heart healthy

Berkhamsted Chiropractic Clinic 3000 Steps

Forget the 10,000-steps-a-day rule—walking 3,000 steps in 30 minutes could be enough, especially if you have congestive heart failure and you want to improve your chances of a long life.

Doctors have warned heart patients off physical exercise, and prescribed drugs or even a pacemaker instead—but walking every day at a moderate pace has all the same benefits, new research has discovered.

Fidgeting is good for you!

Berkhamsted Chiropractic Clinic Fidgeting

We’ve all done it, tapped our toe in frustration, eager to be gone and off doing something more interesting. We’ve crossed our legs and moved our foot in timing with the music appreciating the beat as tho through the sole of our shoe. And we’ve jiggled our leg in expectation, ready to jump up and get going.

Fidgeting, we all do it.

The Pursuit of Mindfulness Living

Berkhamsted Chiropractic Clinic The Pursuit of Mindfulness

Modern Life is anything but Simple. We are in an age of expansion not seen before and doesn’t look like slowing anytime soon. We juggle multiple roles, chase our never ending to do lists and many of us are entrapped in the web of technology as it advances and expands and intrudes into every corner of our existence, where not even the bedroom or the bathroom provide solace, anxious we’ll miss the latest blog or txt or ‘like’. The expectation we place on ourselves and those imposed upon us have never been greater – and the very things that may serve to help us maintain balance including solitude, down time, ordinary pleasures, connecting with nature and true connection (no device) time with family and friends are fast becoming redundant in our over stimulated, distraction laden daily lives.

Berkhamsted Chriropractic Clinic Healthy Lifestyle Tips

Creating a healthy lifestyle doesn’t have to mean drastic changes.  In fact, drastic changes almost always lead to failure.  Making small changes in how you live each day can lead to a healthier lifestyle.

Here are some healthy lifestyle tips you can incorporate into your daily life:

Move Well - Exercise on a daily basis, sit less, move more and gradually build up to at least 30 mins of exercise a day.

Eat Well – Increase your intake of natural foods, like fruits, vegetables and non-processed foods. A good simple rule is, the closer to its natural form - the better the food. A healthy diet can help with weight management and improve health and quality of life.

Sleep Well – Try and sleep 7 to 8 hours per day.  Lack of sleep can make you feel tired and affect your eating habits.
