Exercise is beneficial for young and old alike, enhancing cognition, health, sleep quality, and more. Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc has confidence that adding Fort Wayne exercise to your lifestyle is a positive behavior that ultimately enhances your life. Let’s get moving! EXERCISE MOTIVATORS Culture can be supportive of physical activity…or not. Researchers analyzed a variety of motivators for physical activity and exercise. Since being physically active is an act of self-determination, they described the mix of autonomy, competence, ego, task, and relatedness of these in the motivation to exercise. American subjects were more autonomous, task oriented, and physically active than Turkish subjects reminding researchers and ultimately us clinicians to customize exercise to the patient and his/her influences. (1) Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc has to find out what motivates you! Simple? Fast? At-home? Out of the house? Maybe some mindfulness? To enrich the exercise effort, adding mindfulness appears promising. Researchers found though that people have misconceptions or no concept of what mindfulness is or how it is beneficial to mental and overall health. One study examined the effectiveness of physical activity and mindfulness activities in averting mental health issues and decided that it held promise. (2) Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc appreciates those types of benefits! BENEFITS FOR COGNITION, PAIN RELIEF WITH PHYSICAL ACTIVITY A pill maybe?! None of us would confess to wanting a pill to be physically fit…or would we? Of course not! As the pharmacological world looks for drugs to improve cognitive function in the aging folks, researchers have also reported on nutrition, diet, probiotics, cognitive training, and physical activity, exercise, even dancing – ballroom, aerobic and Latin - as being beneficial. (3) Important motivators can be healthy lifestyle behaviors mixed with chiropractic care. Treating and alleviating chronic pain – associated with decreased brain gray matter and impaired cognitive function - was observed to restore normal brain function. (4) That’s what Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc does: treat chronic pain with chiropractic care featuring spinal manipulation. OLDER FOLKS AND YOUNG KIDS Curious researchers tackled the question of older adults’ goals, motivations, and self-determination motivators to follow a healthy lifestyle and participate in activities to support that lifestyle like exercising and eating well. Factors like personality and goal-setting habits were proposed as influencers. (5) Even in kids, researchers saw that behaviors like breakfast eating, exercise, and sleep patterns affected their healthy lifestyle. Not having breakfast in the morning – 11% of kids in a recent study did this – was linked to sleep duration, bedtime, and physical activity. 9.5% of kids said they had poor sleep. 24.9% slept less than the recommended 9 hours. Girls were not as physically active. Bad news: Such less-than-healthy habits worsened children’s hand-eye coordination and attention. Positive] news: Better sleep quality enhanced reaction time in a visual attention test.
