This boggles my mind. Over 20 years in two different healing professions and I have been perplexed by the attitude of people.
So many people just keep piling on the stress. They are addicted to excuses and abuses. Some days I wonder, why even bother? I could just sell cigarettes and booze. Really! It's human nature to be stuck in our ways. I get it. But we've gotta grow in our minds and hearts, living each day better than the day before.
I love learning about health. I love to read and soak in any kind of health information I can get my hands on. It has to be natural. No drugs. No surgery. I also read the book, Change or Die. The author researches why 95% of heart patients are too frozen in their minds to change their behaviors, even when they are told they will die if they don't change their life styles.
I also apply a lot of these healthy concepts to my life. I take a ton of Standard Process supplements, I eat a low carb diet, and I get adjusted all the time. I don't use an alarm clock to get up. I don't own a microwave. I don't drink coffee. I do a lot of things that would label me a fanatic. But I am living the difference compared to my life style 20 to 30 years ago.
I find it so inspiring and I can't abate my passion. But I can't tell others what to do. I can't use scare tactics because people would call me a blubbering idiot. I have to let you live your life. It's a free country. So, here I am trying to be a motivational teacher, but my students aren't earning A's.
I know you guys are passionate about other things more than healthy habits. I know people who are crazy about taking car of their cars. I am not one of them. In fact, I hate taking the time out to go to a service station, sit around and wait for an oil change, or repair. Because I am trying to be as flexible as I am with office hours, I find it to be a real pain in the butt to take time out for my car. But I don't want to break down in the middle of the country. I don't want to ruin my car and buy a new one prematurely.
I know people who like to garden. I know people who like to fix things. I hate both. I can't stand buying gardening supplies, digging in the dirt, and weeding. I don't plant flowers. I don't decorate my yard. I just don't like it. But I know other people who are good at it. They eat, breathe, sleep the next growing season.
I don't like to fix things. I make a real mess. I lose parts. I break things while I am trying to fix things. I hate deciphering instructions. I hate putting things together. I don't have to patience.
So I get it. I know what it feels like to hate doing something that is good for me.
So can we come to a truce?
While I am challenging myself to try something new (Thank you, you tube. I can replace a door knob and install a new sink.) can my peeps meet me half way and take a new look at the approaches we can implement to give you more energy, lose weight, and reduce some of those nasty risk factors hanging over your head?
You're not alone. I know life is a challenge most days. I know I'm telling you things your friends and other doctors don't agree with.
Let's add more TNT to your chiropractic care. Let's make your nervous system take better care of you. Let's transform your fears to cheers.
All change comes from a shift in thinking. Let's do some shifting together. Let's revisit your nagging concerns and make a little shift.
The world is stressful. It's dirty. The environment is damaging us. Our food is not nourishing. People are at each other's throats. Let's find a balance to take the strain off of our lives.
Let's put a little more emphasis on the chiropractic approach.
See you at the table....
the adjusting table.
