Chiropractor Corner - with Dr. Livia Chiarelli

Now that spring is approaching and the weather is getting nicer, the simplest thing you can do to get active is Walk!  Walking even 15 minutes a day can start you on the way to a healthy activity habit.  

Here are some tips from the Ontario Chiropractic Association to keep you walking this spring:

  • Dress properly. In mild weather, wear several light layers so that you can remove a layer as your body warms up from the activity. If it’s a chilly day, bring gloves and a hat. You want to be comfortable and enjoy your walk.
  • Wear supportive shoes. Thin-soled, untied or loose-fitting shoes may result in a twisted ankle or sore arches – not the benefit you are looking for! Wear footwear that is appropriate for the weather – your walk will not be enjoyable with cold or wet feet.
  • Bring a bottle of water. It’s surprising how quickly you may become thirsty, even on a short walk.
  • A companion is a good idea. Ask your partner, a friend or one of your children to come along with you.

The important thing is to decide on the best time for you and try not to allow other things to get in the way.  I find that scheduling activity during your day,like you schedule a meeting or conference call is a good way to stay accountable.  

Look at your walk as an enjoyable break in your day – a time when there are no chores to do or deadlines to meet. Breathe deeply. Look up at the sky, the trees and the rooftops. Smile. Life gets better when you fit in a walk.

Sean Popped the Question! Congrats to Sean and his Fiance - while away in Iceland, as they were peering over the edge of cliff, she said YES!  Look for him to be officially off the market in 2018
