EXERCISE MOTIVATORS

Culture can be supportive of physical activity…or not. Researchers evaluated various motivators for physical activity and exercise. Since being physically active is an act of self-determination, they described the combination 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 telling researchers and ultimately us clinicians to tailor exercise to the patient and his/her interests. (1) Disc Centers Of America has to find out what motivates you! Simple? Fast? At-home? At-gym? Maybe some mindfulness? To boost the exercise effort, including 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 concluded that it held promise. (2) Disc Centers Of America appreciates those kinds 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? No! As the pharmacological world investigates new drugs to improve cognitive function in the aging folks, researchers have also listed nutrition, diet, probiotics, cognitive training, and physical activity, exercise, even Latin, ballroom, and aerobic dancing as being useful. (3) Major motivators can be healthy lifestyle behaviors combined with chiropractic care. Treating and alleviating chronic pain – linked to decreased brain gray matter and impaired cognitive function - was found to restore normal brain function. (4) That’s what Disc Centers Of America does: treat chronic pain with chiropractic care incorporating spinal manipulation.

OLDER FOLKS AND YOUNG KIDS

Curious researchers tackled the question of older adults’ goals, motivations, and self-determination motivators to lead a healthy lifestyle and participate in things to support that lifestyle like exercise and eating well. Factors like personality and goal-setting habits were suggested 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 one study did this – was associated with sleep duration, bedtime, and physical activity. 9.5% of kids said they experienced poor sleep. 24.9% did not sleep more than the suggested 9 hours. Girls were not as physically active. Sad news: Such less-than-healthy habits worsened children’s hand-eye coordination and attention. Good] news: Better sleep quality enhanced reaction time in a visual attention exam. (6) Disc Centers Of America is here to help you make better choices, temper expectations, and make beneficial healthy lifestyle goals.
