How to Get More Greens on a Daily Basis

It’s easy to say that you should be eating more veggies on a daily basis, but achieving that end is an entirely different matter. Once we start actually putting the plan into action, we may find that consuming the requisite amount of daily vegetables necessary to stay healthy is easier said than done.

Below, Family Chiropractic & Spinal Health Care Center goes over a few ways to get your daily greens the pain-free way.

Eat More Salads

Eating robust and flavorful salads with all the colors of the rainbow in them is a good way to get your daily dose of greens in without feeling like you’re on a prison diet. You’ll generally start to feel better and more energized after meals rather than being bogged down by carb heavier options on the menu.

Drink Green Juices

Drink kale juice or shots of wheatgrass as opposed to fruit juices, which often have the same amount of sugar as soda. Drinking a green smoothie is a great way to get a few servings of veggies in one quick sitting.

Choose Veggie Snacks

Pack snacks like carrots, broccoli, and other healthy vegetables instead of chips.

Tips for Better Posture

When it comes to having good posture, it’s not just something you get and keep once you’ve obtained it. Having good posture and keeping good posture is a constant practice, and it’s easy to end up slacking off, especially as the workday unwinds and we get a little fatigued.

Below, Family Chiropractic & Spinal Health Care Center goes over a few tips to improve your posture and to keep that great posture for the long haul.

It’s All About the Chair

Sit in an ergonomic chair and try to opt for one of those standing desk converters, that way you can split your time between standing and sitting, which will break up the monotony. Invest in a chair that is supportive and comfortable.

Back Straight, Chin Up

Make sure to keep your back straight, even curved inward a bit at the lower end of your spine. Stick your butt out a little bit and keep your chin slightly raised. Keeping your feet flat on the ground also helps enforce good posture.

Exercise Regularly

Working out with perfect form and technique will improve your posture. Working your core muscle group will also have you feeling strong and healthy on a daily basis, much more fit for keeping good posture throughout the day.

Top 3 Stress and Anxiety Relief Tools


When it comes to stress and anxiety, either can arise from a variety of factors, whether they be work-related, family-related or somewhere in between. The truth is, it’s up to us how we’re going to handle stress and anxiety — because no one is impervious to either.

Below, Family Chiropractic & Spinal Health Care goes over a few ways to manage stress and anxiety the healthy way.

1.) Exercise to Exertion

Make sure that you’re getting in your fitness at least 3-4 times per week, otherwise, that excess energy that doesn’t get burnt off will show up as stress or anxiety. When we work our bodies out properly, we achieve a new inner peace from pushing ourselves past what we think are our boundaries.

2.) Eat Well and Hydrate

Sometimes when we’re feeling lousy it might just come down to what we’re putting in our body. Eat clean, whole foods — and plenty of veggies. Make sure you drink half your body weight in ounces of water each day.

3.) Visit the Chiropractor

Visiting the chiropractor regularly will help you manage stress and anxiety the drug-free way, not to mention relieve tension that occurs in the spine, neck, legs, and joints.
