Last Week's Links 11-23-20

It’s Thanksgiving week!! We LOVE Thanksgiving!! Even in a crazy year like 2020, we feel like we still have so much to be thankful for. After all, gratitude is incredibly good for you–it has been shown to be strongly and consistently associated with greater health and happiness.

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!

Without further ado, 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:

We are still here, still serving the community and helping people in this time of great stress and uncertainty.
