Before you start thinking this is about Jimmy Stewart, remember his movie was “It’s a Wonderful Life”. A patient once shared a quote with me from her father, George Abbey. He repeated these words to her throughout her upbringing: “It’s a great life if you don’t weaken.”
What does the above quote have to do with your health? Health requires many things including healthy relationships, creating a positive future, an active lifestyle, a diet with minimal sugar intake and mental toughness.
Life and health require we show up with grit, toughness, and strength of mind, body, and spirit.
Any adult knows the tough times are going to come. If you desire a great life, you mustn’t give in. Face your inevitable weaknesses and step forward anyway. The more you train your strengths to show up, the more they show up. What a coincidence.
Research shows chiropractic care helps the nervous system become more resilient. Call it what you will: resilience, grit, or toughness– we all need some.
