Now that the holidays are over and the New Year has officially begun, it’s time to settle into 2016. What are you looking forward to creating this year?
Whether you’ve set resolutions, are taking stock of your goals, or are just trying to resettle after vacations and holidays, stabilizing into new rhythms or forgotten routines can be challenging.
The hectic holidays, vacation freedom, and winter blues can all throw you off balance, even if you’re eager to get on the right track. We’ve compiled some tips to make resettling a little easier, so you can create a healthy, successful year.
Happy New Year!! It might not be 2016 just yet, but if you're thinking about your New Year's Eve plans, it might be time to start thinking about your New Year's Day plans as well.
New Year's Eve tends to get all the glory - the celebrations, the countdown, the fireworks... but, if you're looking forward to having a great new year, New Year's Day can be important for setting your intentions and/or beginning your resolutions.
The holidays are over, so now you can direct your energy and attention to looking ahead. Resolutions or not, here's a few ideas to make the first day of 2016 inspiring and impactful.
During the holidays, we’re often reminded to focus our attention on gratitude; gratitude for our lives, the people in it, and all the little things that make it more joyous. With the recent accolades from the Weekly’s Best of Eugene, a successful open house, and some very kind reviews, we’ve been feeling your gratitude and have been appreciative of your willingness to share it. But, we didn’t want to let this year pass without expressing our gratitude for you.
Working as Dr. Adam’s assistant, I’ve been an observer to hundreds of chiropractic appointments. Our coordinated care approach also means our therapists discuss your cases (when necessary and appropriate), to ensure you’re receiving the best and most effective care we can offer. Over time, we’ve come to a consensus… you are all amazing!
You come to us with your worries, your fears, your hopes, your goals, and some very interesting stories. Addressing health concerns can be challenging and worrisome, but you choose us to help you and we are honored by your choice.

2. Get extra sleep and rest time. Travel can be stressful any time of year, but during the holidays there's even more to consider, such as weather, family dynamics, and the holiday rushes. Give your system a break by getting plenty of sleep before and after you travel. When you're well-rested, you can be more present and handle stressful situations more easily. Scheduling time for nurturing treatments such as chiropractic, massage, and shirodhara can also help you recharge.
There is much insight dedicated to the topic of forgiveness that has been passed down for centuries. There is a particular sequence of words, however, that seems to hold volumes of raw, powerful, truth: “Holding a grudge is like drinking poison and waiting for the other person to die.” These words, spoken by Buddha, are meant to penetrate the issue and generate thought. It's a quote that makes you think, and in return, gives you that “Ah ha!” moment.
We live in a society of rules and laws, but there are some laws of nature that simply cannot be broken. They are often referred to as universal laws, one of which we are all familiar - whatever energy you send out you get back tenfold, or a more commonly used cliché, “What goes around, comes around.” This is the law of Karma.
When we hold a grudge against someone it may end up harming them, but it most certainly harms us more; and in more than one way. Not only is it harmful emotionally and spiritually, but over time, it can make you physically ill. Giving power to such negative feelings is exhausting.
