Being a young male and like most 20 somethings I am chasing the dream of wanting to achieve all I can. I used to work in the finance sector, working long hours and in all honesty I hated every day of it. I had constant exposure to technology and social media, sat at a desk for 8 hours a day and admit that I consumed a lot of sugar and alcohol for release. That mixed altogether left me feeling drained and foggy and not much use to anyone. It left me wondering if this was the vicious cycle that my body would have to endure for the rest of my working life. I made this dire discovery at the age of 21.
About 3 years ago I was lucky enough to meet my first Chiropractor and now close friend. I had no idea what they did or if I even needed to see one. I decided to trust my instinct and booked to have my first ever consultation. The feeling I had almost instantly after I was adjusted felt like an out of body experience. – I suddenly felt like I was being reset or switched back on. This sounded crazy to a lot of my friends and family but to me this was the start of my journey with chiropractic care being a huge part of my health. Unfortunately having to go back to my old habits and a stressful work situation of course meant the natural calming effect from being adjusted by a chiropractor soon faded after a day or so.
Over the course of the next year I invested a sum of money into having regular chiropractic care. This meant that when I was having an off day and I felt stressed and disconnected I would get an adjustment. If I had been training hard in the gym but not sleeping well I would get an adjustment. I soon realised that although I didn’t experience any illness or pain which people believe is the main reason why you should see a chiropractor, I was becoming a healthier version of me and noticed changes in my overall wellbeing.
I began to feel less stressed when I was working. Headaches and the brain fog I would experience seemed to fade away over time. It was as if my body was improving and information was travelling quicker and smarter to where it needed to go to.
This is my message for the younger generation working and living stressful lives. If you have no physical symptoms it is by far the best time to go and see a chiropractor. There are a huge range of benefits to go and see one and investing in your health now will save you a lot of trouble in the future.
Since my first adjustment a few years back I have gone on to make huge changes to my life that included leaving my old job in finance and have since created a beautiful career in Chiropractic and watched how it is helping many people of all ages heal and live a high quality of life on a daily basis.
