1) First, I'm hungry by 10 am. I get up pretty early so by 10 I've usually been up for 5 hours. I highly recommend getting up early and developing a solid morning routine. Read any book or watch any documentary about highly successful people and they all have morning routines. Whether it is exercise, reading, meditation, reflection, affirmations, or a combo of all the above, starting your day out on the right foot is very important. I doubt the CEO of your company rolls outs of bed a half hour before he walks in to the office.
2) I try to avoid slumps. The title of this blog could be changed to Why I start eating my lunch at 10am. I don't like to cram my whole lunch down in one sitting. It makes me feel tired, full, and lethargic. We have all experienced those afternoon slumps coming back to work after lunch. And working with many companies I find that most people aren't nearly as productive in the second half of the day as they are in the morning. Unless maybe you roll out of bed 30 minutes before work, if so, reread number one above. So to avoid these slumps, I kind of graze on my lunch. A bite here, a bite there. Often starting at 10 and not finishing until 12 or 1. This is also better for your blood sugar levels. Reduce the carbs and space out the bites to avoid the slumps.
3) I like to use my lunch break to do something productive. Typically, I use my lunch breaks to workout, sometimes I have errands to run that I can't do during my work day. If you have ever tried to workout after you get off work, well you know how that story ends. It's almost impossible. You are tired from your day and ready to get home. I notice that working out during my lunch break gives me energy to power through the rest of my day.
Stem cell therapy is a remarkable treatment option to help regenerate many different types of tissues in the body. They are considered an internal repair system that aids in replenishing cells where there is damage or destruction. When a stem cell divides, each new cell has the potential either to remain a stem cell or become another type of cell with a more specialized function, such as a muscle cell, a red blood cell, or a brain cell. Given their unique regenerative capabilities we are seeing stem cell therapy used to treat a multitude of conditions, including diabetes and heart disease.
At Adjust Dallas, we are very excited to introduce this cutting edge therapy for our patients. The ability of stem cells to halt disease progression and regenerate tissues can help with many patients who suffer from knee pain, shoulder pain, SI joint pain, etc. Stem cells have enormous potential for alleviating symptoms of those suffering from pain and biomechanical dysfunction when no other therapy has worked.
The title says it all, you will fail at your new year’s resolution, and I guarantee it. That is of course if you are setting the bar high enough. Discouraging? Challenging? People will have different emotions to being told that they will fail. But again, it is the truth, you will fail. The average person fails after just 15 days, pretty sad right? So the real question is what are you going to do once you fail? Since we know it will happen. The difference between someone who accomplishes their goals and someone who doesn’t is what they do once they fail. So we already know going in to it that it is going to happen, we know it will be challenging, and that failure is right around the corner. But once you fail are you going to feel sorry for yourself, make excuses, hope for next year, or are you going to get right back on track? On day 15 when you go through the drive thru or give in to a cigarette are you going to have a meltdown or are you going to recognize the temporary setback. You see every time you fail, you can learn from the failure, and you can get stronger, better, and those 15 day stretches become longer and the failures become further and fewer in between. Whatever and whoever your definition of greatness is, I guarantee you they failed along the way. So we know you will fail, now how are you going to respond?
