Last Week's Links 1-25-21

We hope you are starting your week off well! There is an eye-opening article linked here and below: “Yes, The Pandemic Is Ruining Your Body” that makes some important observations about the physical impact on adults and children that working at home is having on their bodies. Chiropractic is a safe and effective way to reduce or even eliminate these problems without drugs or surgery! Always remember: it’s always better to be PROactive than REactive when it comes to health, and that we are here to help!!

WE ARE THANKFUL FOR ALL OF YOU, WHO CHOOSE ROM FAMILY CHIROPRACTIC TO BE A PART OF YOUR JOURNEY OF GETTING AND STAYING HEALTHY!!

Before we get to the links:

The health and safety of our patients and team is our highest priority. We are continuing to schedule by appointment only to allow for the thorough cleaning of surfaces between visits. We are limiting the number of people in the office at any given time, and we are following other suggested guidelines for safety and prevention to ensure a clean, stress-free environment for everyone.

If this crisis has showed us anything it’s how important it is to have a high level of durable baseline health and resilience—now more than ever!

Here are the links from our Rom Family Chiropractic Facebook page and all the good stuff we posted over the  last week!

We like to post things on a wide variety of health topics, but it can all be broken down into 5 broad categories:

1. Being well-adjusted
2. Eating well
3. Moving well
4. Thinking well
5. Sleeping well


Here are the links we posted from last week: 

Children’s Screen Time Has Soared in the Pandemic, Alarming Parents and Researchers

Would we have done it differently for kids, if we knew how long this would last?

“Scientists say that children’s brains, well through adolescence, are considered “plastic,” meaning they can adapt and shift to changing circumstances. That could help younger people again find satisfaction in an offline world but it becomes harder the longer they immerse in rapid-fire digital stimulation.”

Kids need to re-connect with using their bodies–building more movement into their daily routine is an easy place to smart. We are here to help!!
