November might seem like a month where there are going to be more than a few obstacles for your health and wellness routine.
Thanksgiving Wellness Obstacles
First of all, Thanksgiving will usually entail making plans, or, at the very least, planning an extensive meal for the family, relatives, and possibly friends. These foods are usually not the most nutritionally sound. During Thanksgiving, we tend to eat comfort foods, and in large amounts.
Some of us might also be picking up extra hours in an effort to make the holiday season extra magical for those who we care about.
Couple these aspects of November mentioned above with the creeping in of the cold air and it might seem like it’s going to be really hard to stay healthy and active this month.
Tips for a Healthy November
Instead, make it a point to eat healthy foods and even prepare healthier foods for your Thanksgiving Fare. For instance, prepare some Fall friendly veggies and make extensive salads that incorporate healthy greens, carrots, sprouts, avocado, cucumber, celery, and other healthy ingredients geared toward fueling you throughout the day.
Quickly you will find that clean, whole foods will bog you down considerably less than carb-ridden, processed sugar-dense comfort foods.
Getting outdoors may be a challenge, especially in those early morning hours that are now freezing cold. Invest in some outerwear that will make your exercise routine a little more comfortable in the cold weather. It’s still worth it to bring your workouts outdoors when you can. If you can’t, at home is still a fantastic place to build a workout regiment.
Lastly, make sure you double-down on your mindfulness exercises. Meditation, yoga, and even taking a moment to take a few deep breaths can do wonders for your mental health. We know the holiday season can be stressful, but you got this!

November is also a great month to explore chiropractic treatment. Chiropractic adjustments have been shown to reduce stress and anxiety, provide drug-free pain relief, and more. Contact Family Chiropractic & Spinal Health Care Center today to schedule your consultation.
